Government messaging on lockdown like a 'bull in a china shop'

Commenting on reports that Boris Johnson is due to encourage further easing of lockdown and a wider return to work tomorrow, transport union TSSA has raised concerns about the government's "bull in a china shop" approach to public health.

TSSA General Secretary Manuel Cortes said: 

“Johnson's bull in a china shop approach to our serious health emergency has sadly sapped people's confidence in what the government says or does.

"Mixed, conflicting messages appear to have been a core strategy - either by design or more likely through incompetence.

"Tomorrow's expected announcement appears to be more of the same.

"We really can't rebuild confidence that our government knows what it's doing until at the very least we have a working track and trace system. Something which currently is completely off beam."
