Christopher Snowdon, the IEA’s Head of Lifestyle Economics, has penned an article for the The Spectator outlining his thoughts on why the government has chosen to introduce further measures in the fight against Omicron.

“We may never know whether the new Christmas restrictions were designed to take the our minds off the government ignoring last year’s Christmas restrictions. Either way, Boris Johnson has displayed an appallingly cavalier approach to liberty.”
