Its very odd that old people are supposed to stay in the care home if they get corona rather than go to hospital...when the Nightingale is near empty as you say BB

Why wouldn't they answer that question on the broadcast!

Its frustrating. I didn't see all of broadcast but I saw that bit.

There are times when our Government wish they had the benefit of the 5th. Amendment to the Constitution , enjoyed by our American cousins :

The Fifth Amendment creates a number of rights relevant to both criminal and civil legal proceedings. In criminal cases, the Fifth Amendment guarantees the right to a grand jury, forbids “double jeopardy,” and protects against self-incrimination.

Similar to what we have seen fairly recently in the second stage of the Grenfell Tower hearings.

The British way is to avoid answering the question ... the true art of any politician.

One can only speculate ... no prior coordinated planning for a situation that was almost inevitable ... NHS / social care being divorced from each other ( That goes back decades ).
