Elsewhere during the interview, Swayne accused the government of ruling "by diktat" during the pandemic.
What really gets to me about this is that, you know, where was the debate? We are a democracy.
The government has been governing since the beginning of this crisis by diktat using powers that it was granted in 1984 under the Public Health Act. By golly, didn't George Orwell choose correctly the title for his dystopian novel?
A Star Wars and a 1984 reference? Groundbreaking.
Swayne's argument, that anti-maskers haven't had their voices heard in parliament, isn't entirely fair.
After all, he had the opportunity to label masks "a monstrous imposition" in the Commons.

And it's his government making the rules.
