Rules and guidelines

 

Sir, – The revised Covid outdoor guidelines issued (“New Covid-19 outdoor guidelines permit gatherings of 200, live music in hospitality settings”, News, August 6th) are remarkable for one thing only: the speed at which this Government can move when a smokescreen is required to spare the blushes of one of its own. – Yours, etc,
