Have I Mentioned How Much I Love Science?

And how I adore transparency?

Well, you can imagine how ecstatic I am when I find science & transparency working in tandem.

Face coverings – the Government overruled Dr. Bloomfield , while following “the science”.

Seems face coverings as a “constant reminder of the pandemic” and “to prompt desirable behaviors” is reason enough.

Section 22 of the Cabinet papers say reasons to maintain use of face coverings are outlined in paras 42-46. Somehow, its those very paras which are redacted.
