Ostensibly, the government probably expected some light discussion on a public forum, but people had more pressing questions. Namely, why have they messed up their coronavirus response so much?
At this point, what else did the government think people were going to ask?
The tweet was flooded with thousands of responses, most of which expressed the public’s dissatisfaction over how the government has handled the pandemic.
The glaring problem to many was the decision to let households mix for Christmas, while just weeks later, the Covid-19 death toll is soaring. Over the weekend, the UK exceeded 80,000 deaths due to Covid-19.
Suffice to say, people used the opportunity to ask the government the questions that really need answering.
