COVID and the House of Commons
« on: December 30, 2020, 10:50:43 AM »
Why shouldn't MPs have to wear masks at all times in the House of Commons, given that it's a place where lots of people are speaking at high volumes and where people have travelled in from all parts of the UK?

Why are there no screens to protect MPs from aerosol particles? Are there any windows open at all?

Really it makes no sense to have people in the Commons chamber at all, all this could be done via video conferencing software. I wonder how many MPs have asymptomatic covid and are super spreading it about due to the lack of COVID precautions in the House of Commons.

Didn't Rees-Mogg decree that a video parliament was witchcraft or communism or some such?

They are probably all vaccinated by now, so I'm sure they'll be fine.

We don't know if vaccinated people can spread it to others though. I feel sorry for these staff and the Commons staff.

Yes, obviously the non-VIPs (non-politicians) will get nothing. Apart from platitudes of course, as it is politicians we're talking about. The manufacturers of bullshit.
