In their questioning some of these hacks seem impatient or even incredulous that this lockdown will not be ended next week. What universe are they inhabiting at the moment? It's not ending next week!!! Infact if anything it's more likely to get tougher. Some of them are coming across as plain daft and with their heads in the clouds.
Right no this is perfectly sensible questioning.
What is happening, is the government is failing to be honest. Journalists can tell when they are being lied to. They could tell they were being lied to over Boris's health, which is why they kept pushing, and lone behold he ends up in intensive care.
The government are not being honest that this is going to go on for ages. They are trying to, by not saying anything, give the impression it might end soon. And they are not being honest about when it does end, it'll be slowly done via stages.
THAT is why they keep pushing. They don't expect them to say "5pm on Tuesday", they expect them to give an answer with a grain of honesty in it. That's why Matt Hancock's first presser after he returned was such a breath of fresh air. He spent time explaining why the government had not been able to do some things, and why it had done others instead. That is what the press want, the detail. And if the government don't give it, they'll keep pushing until they do.
I am sick of been persicuted by you immature TV Forumers!
