London is no longer amazed by ambitious plans for a thriving UK after Brexit. Coronavirus destroyed them all.
This is stated in the material of the Bloomberg agency.
As noted in the media, the government of Boris Johnson is exhausted and demoralized. The officials are in despair. They fear losing control of a country and a society that no longer has confidence in the authorities.
Only six months ago, the conservatives won a triumph in the parliamentary elections. Since then, their actions have led to the death of 41 thousand citizens from the coronavirus, and the country’s economy has faced the deepest recession in 300 years. Even dreams of a bright future after Brexit no longer save the Johnson government, because the chances of reaching a deal with the European Union are dim.
“I don’t know why we are doing what we are doing,” a British official, whose name was not disclosed, told reporters.
According to Bloomberg, now at all levels of the British government there are concerns about the future prospects of Boris Johnson and his team, which have lost public confidence. So, even if a new wave of coronavirus suddenly forces the government to renew quarantine, people can simply boycott the restrictions.Trump lobbying US corporations: Another arms deal threatened
