  1. A huge hoo-ha in the press and all over social media about one, high profile advisor to the Prime Minister apparently flouting the rules on staying at home during the initial lockdown has focused a lot of minds on trust in our Government. What is the point in instructing the general public to stay at home for everyone’s benefit if you are not prepared to do the same? The weather is warmer at night, as well as during the days at the moment. Lots of people are sleeping out under the stars, enjoying an opportunity to be closer to nature while the world is a little slower and quieter.
