Is it time to mass the legal troops? The provisions of the Corona Virus Act 2020 require a member of the government to submit a motion within the next month:
(2)The form of the motion is— “That the temporary provisions of the Coronavirus Act 2020 should not yet expire.” https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2020/7/section/98/enacted This initiates the "6 month review period", the period of 6 months beginning with the day on which this Act is passed, enabling debate in the house as to whether this draconian legislation should remain in force, and there is much argument that it should not.
E.G. The ONS stats show many regions experiencing consecutive zero death days, with the South West showing over 30 zero death days. The majority of trusts are indicating consecutive zero death days. On this premise and many others, it is hard for the virus to retain its standing as a 'pandemic' and thus for the government to retain the legislation.
https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases There are many arguments to downscale the UK response, repeal the legislation and thereby curb interim excessive government powers, prevent the draconian and unsubstantiated edicts of this incumbent group of incompetents and return the UK to some semblance of political normality. There is much time to lobby relevant parties inc: industry representatives; unions; business groups and NGO's, Time to collate legal arguments, disseminate information and press the opposition and independents to challenge the government, to ensure full and proper debate and importantly for the public to see the evidence being debated. We must hold the government's feet to the fire and drag their machinations into the light of public scrutiny.
