Coronavirus is here to stay. The sooner we accept that, the better | Samuel Earle
Pinning our hopes on a quick-fix, ‘moonshot’ solution serves no useful purpose and will only bring disappointmentCoronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverageSeven or so months ago, at the start of the pandemic, many of us found it easy and natural to imagine a time when all of this would be over: a single, obvious moment when society’s recreational life resumed to normal, when friends and family welcomed us into their homes with hugs and kisses, and we all talked, with excited, wounded relief, about how hard it had been, and how happy we were that the virus was behind us.In Britain, as elsewhere, such wishful thinking was prescribed. Boris Johnson declared that, if we all did what we were told, we could “turn the tide on the virus within 12 weeks”. Meanwhile the ubiquitous analogies comparing a pandemic to war fuelled the fantasy that we would have our own “liberation day”. Much of the media eagerly encouraged this feeling, at the same time as it stoked implausible hopes of a vaccine arriving by September. Continue reading...

Senior Tory Accuses Boris Johnson Of Treating Public Like 'Like Children' With Lockdown Rules
Boris Johnson has been accused by a senior Tory of treating the British people like children through the use of coronavirus emergency powers.The criticism from Graham Brady, chair of the influential 1922 Committee of Tory backbenchers, came as a retired senior judge accused parliament of surrendering control to the government over the “draconian” measures.Baroness Hale, former president of the Supreme Court, called for the return of a “properly functioning constitution as soon as we possibly can”.Brady’s intervention could signal trouble for the prime minister ahead of a vote on the renewal of the Coronavirus Act on September 30.He said ministers had “got into the habit of ruling by decree”, adding: “The British people are not used to being treated like children.”Brady is tabling an amendment which would require the government to put any new measures to a vote of MPs.He said more scrutiny of the so-called rule of six would have enabled MPs to question why the limit was put at six and not eight or 10 and why children were included in England and not in Wales or Scotland.He questioned whether the lockdown strategy had worked, pointing to the situation in Sweden, where such restrictions were not used.And he denied that greater scrutiny would prevent ministers from acting swiftly to deal with the pandemic.“Governments find it entirely possible to put things to parliament very quickly when they choose to do so,” Brady told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.Lady Hale, in an essay seen by The Guardian, suggested parliament had allowed the government to act without proper scrutiny.The Coronavirus Act 2020, passed in March, gave the government “sweeping” powers alongside other “draconian” regulations, and “it is not surprising the police were as confused as the public as to what was law and what was not”, she wrote.She said that parliament has now resumed much of its work “but it did surrender control to the government at a crucial time”.“Maybe the lockdown and its severe consequences … were inevitable or at least the best solution that could be devised in the circumstances,” she said.“My plea is that we get back to a properly functioning constitution as soon as we possibly can.”Baroness Hale also referred to the row over Johnson’s aide Dominic Cummings’ decision to drive from London to County Durham to self-isolate with his family.“Others might have also felt that they had a reasonable excuse for doing something like he did,” she continued. “But they did not do it, either because they did not know the law and just abided by what they were told or because they felt they were not safe.“Hence the outcry that there was one law for those in power and another law for the rest of us. There isn’t. But that’s how it felt to many.”Meanwhile, senior Tory Bernard Jenkin, chair of the liaison committee, called for the prime minister to “take back control of his government from publicity-obsessed and unaccountable advisers, who seem able to instruct everyone else in the government as to what they can and cannot say and do”.In a column in The Daily Telegraph, he suggested that the armed forces should play a greater role in helping the coronavirus response, highlighting the failures in the NHS Test and Trace system run by Tory peer Baroness Harding.He wrote: “The question for the prime minister is this: will he allow things to carry on as they are, with under-qualified appointees scrambling in their posts?“There are still large wells of public goodwill to draw upon, but without serious, targeted action and competent delivery, we will enter the winter looking as if we have learned little from the crisis so far.”Related...

You Rental Rights And How To Get Help As Eviction Ban Ends
The eviction ban in England and Wales preventing landlords from evicting tenants during the coronavirus pandemic has ended, meaning thousands of  people could now face losing their homes. The ban officially lifted on Sunday September 20, meaning Monday 21 is the day county courts will start processing possession claims.Because of how the court works, plus the rules around giving renters advance notice of their hearing, the charity Shelter says it doesn’t expect renters to actually be evicted by bailiffs until October –  but it’s best to get prepared now. “The shocking scale of our housing emergency and lack of social homes has been brutally exposed by the pandemic,” Polly Neate, chief executive of Shelter tells HuffPost UK. “Millions of renters rely on expensive, insecure private rentals because they have no alternative.“And now, more than 300,000 private renters have been plunged into rent arrears since the pandemic hit, leaving many at risk of losing their homes.”READ MORE: These Are Your Redundancy Rights If You've Been Furloughed Some MPs, including Labour’s Bell Ribeiro-Addy, have questioned why the government has extended the eviction ban on commercial business until the end of 2020, but has not done the same for people’s homes. “If the government is intent on lifting the evictions ban, it must give struggling renters emergency funds to clear Covid arrears and stay in their homes,” adds  Neate. “It must also use its autumn Spending Review to seriously ramp up efforts to build more social homes, and fast. Because that is the ultimate answer to the housing crisis.”We asked Shelter to explain the renting rights you need to know if you’re worried about being evicted. How much notice do landlords have to give?This depends on your tenancy type. For most renters, if you’re served notice after August 29 2020, you will receive six months’ notice. If you don’t leave at the end of the six months, your landlord can apply to court.How much notice you’re entitled to depends on when you were served. Section 21 Eviction Notice:  Pre-March 26 = two months’ noticeMarch 26- August 28 = three months’ noticeAugust 29 - March 30 2021 = six months’ notice. Ground 8 Eviction Notice - Rent arrears over eight weeksPre-March 26 = two weeks’ noticeMarch 26 - August 28 = three months’ noticeAugust 29 - March 30 2021 = Six months’ notice (if under six months arrears). Four weeks’ notice (if over six months arrears). READ MORE: Exclusive: A Third Of Lone Parents Received No Child Maintenance From Ex-Partners In Lockdown What are your rights if you want to stay in your rented home?You don’t legally have to leave your home until your landlord obtains a bailiff warrant. If you don’t leave at the end of your notice period, your landlord must apply to court for a possession order, and then a bailiff warrant. If your landlord tries to evict you before obtaining a warrant, this could be an illegal eviction and you should seek urgent advice.There are some exceptions to this rule, like if you are a lodger living in your landlord’s home. Anyone who is worried about losing their home can get in touch with one of Shelter’s expert advisers through the free webchat service or emergency helpline, which is open 365 days a year. If you’ve been struggling to make your rental payments, what should you do next?The first thing you should do is speak to your landlord or letting agent as soon as possible, as they may be willing to agree a repayment plan, reduced rent or accept a late payment. If you can, it may help to let them know what measures you are taking to deal with the situation, too. Just be sure to get the details of any rent agreement in writing. There’s a template letter tool on Shelter’s website to help people negotiate a rent reduction. Some people may also be able to claim benefits like Universal Credit to help with housing costs, so if you’re struggling don’t be afraid to find out what your options are.Visit a charity such as Shelter for free advice on housing, or Step Change, for financial advice on debt. READ MORE: How To Save Money On Your Bills This Autumn How To Get Real About Money With Your Partner During The Pandemic Here’s How To Cope With Lockdown Déjà Vu
