The Public Health Minister told me in an email on 22 May that the justification for a 14-day quarantine is

“where local Covid incidence and prevalence is much lower relative to international incidence and prevalence”.

It is not, is it? So why is the Prime Minister inflicting, from Monday, a blanket quarantine with no basis in science that will devastate our travel industry and rob British families of their foreign holidays?
