Former Supreme Court judge, Lord Sumption, warns that face masks and social distancing could be in place for another decade, as long as rationing lasted after World War II. Boris Johnson is yet to set a date for the end of these measures.
Face masks and social distancing could be in place for another decade, Lord Sumption has claimed.
The former Supreme Court judge warned restrictions on Britons’ freedoms could last as long as rationing after the Second World War.
He said it was ‘politically unrealistic’ to expect the Government to backtrack on social controls anytime soon because the public had become so used to them.
Lord Sumption suggested Britons had actually started to take comfort in restrictions because they made them feel safe.
