Having spent months working in Singapore I suspect this is not true. Singapore is fiercely independent and has recent experience of pandemic approach from SARS. It would have its own playbook and it would be followed to the letter.

I know that was then, but it could be again..

'This is despite the country having a good pandemic plan that other countries have apparently copied. Martin Hibberd, professor of emerging infectious diseases at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, who worked with Singapore on its pandemic preparedness in 2003 and 2009, told the Times on Sunday on 19 April that Singapore basically copied the UK’s plan. “But the difference is they actually implemented it,” he said.'

Of course there is the thought that had the government not allowed PPE stocks to be drastically eroded over their ten year tenure, and had they heeded the advice from Exercise Cygnus then the country would have been in a far better place to meet the threat of Covid.

But I have no doubt it will be blamed on 'someone else'...................as usual.

But with

"Mr Cummings said that by March 14 one of the things being 'screamed at the PM was ''there is *no plan for lockdown* & our current official plan will kill at least 250k & destroy the NHS''.' "

Wednesdays questioning of Cummings will certainly prove to be interesting, to say the least. But whether we will find out why fat boy didn't show up to 5 COBRA meetings, or why he went awol for 12 days in February when the sht was hitting the fan, we shall have to see.

Roll on Weds -

" Dominic Cummings is due to give evidence before the joint health and science committee inquiry into the government's Covid response.
The session — which is due on Wednesday from 9.30 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Cummings has said he is happy to stay longer) "

Fair. We are an absolute shambles then. Despite being on the green list I'm pretty sure Singapore have to approve every non resident wanting to come into Changi.

It might help to see who is paying the piper to know wgose tune the PM is dancing to

"Johnson said on This Morning on 5 March that ‘one of the theories is, that perhaps you could take it on the chin, take it all in one go and allow the disease, as it were, to move through the population, without taking as many draconian measures. "


However

"When the Imperial College study reported that the ‘herd immunity’ strategy would lead to 250,000 deaths with ‘mitigation’, 510,000 without, Cummings realised that the price was too high and became a firm advocate of ‘suppression’ which the Imperial authors clearly showed was the only alternative. The Government then changed tack and their Chief Scientific Advisor, Sir Patrick Vallance, talked of the ‘hope’ that excess deaths would be limited to 20,000. But despite Cummings’ support for suppression, Johnson continued to vacillate, and a University College London study has now shown that we may expect 35-70,000 excess deaths."

As he has done for the year since. Muddled messages about holiday travel, Christmas and schools have been the norm.

A tricky position to be in. Those who voted for him, or those who 'pay' for him. Sadly to the detriment of the former and the loss of 128,000 lives it has always been the latter.

"Until there is a formal public inquiry in which all sides of the story can be aired, he remains the single most authoritative source on what happened inside government during one of this country’s darkest moments. It’s just that bitter experience suggests such access all too often comes at a price."
