List circulating on social media sums up the Tories’ performance so far in a 30-second read
The SKWAWKBOX has been unable to identify the author of this list, but it’s a brilliant summary of the government’s performance and dishonesty during the coronavirus crisis that should take 30 seconds or less to read.
It’s something you certainly won’t see or read in the ‘mainstream’ media. Share widely.

Update: the list was created by Ricky Coxon, although he was at pains to point out that the research was mostly done by others on twitter, Wikileaks and elsewhere.
