This morning Matt Hancock voiced for the first time that after the 13.8 million most vulnerable have been vaccinated, the UK will need to have a national debate about who should then be prioritised, suggesting policemen, teachers and shop workers. Loony left MP Zarah Sultana has different priorities: vaccinating incarcerated criminals.
Sultana, who must be intent on trying to lose her 401 majority, asked Nadhim Zahawi:
“Prisons are a high risk setting for transmission… and vaccinating detainees is both good for public health and a humane approach to a completely disenfranchised population, so has the government considered prioritising detainees as well as those who work in prisons?”
She mustn’t have got the memo from Labour HQ – the new official newspeak directive from Southside is “prison users”…
