PETER HITCHENS: We’re destroying the nation’s wealth – and the health of millions [LINK]

Why do I bother? For six weeks now I have been saying that the Government’s policy on Covid-19 is a mistake.

Most people do not agree with me, and many are angry with me for saying so.

Others, bafflingly, don’t care about the greatest crisis I have seen in my lifetime, and regard the debate as a spectator sport.

Let me say it again: the coronavirus is not as dangerous as claimed. Other comparable epidemics have taken place with far less fuss, and we have survived them.
