Aside from being untrue, Matt Hancock’s comments about the coronavirus vaccine are very dangerous:
If the vaccine becomes a matter of political party controversy, people will/won’t take it because of their party preferences. A successful vaccination drive requires broader cross-party and no-party support.
There’s more than enough other material to argue over Brexit. Making a success of vaccination shouldn’t be sacrificed for wanting to find one other talking point.
And of course, Stephen Bush makes a similar point far more eloquently than me in his daily email (sign up here).
