Your government inferred that those wanting to avoid offices and crowded spaces there were workshy and lazy. Your government said we needed to go to pubs, shops and restaurants to kickstart the economy. Now you blame us for following those actions:
Health secretary overarching message this morning: if there’s another national lockdown the public will only have themselves to blame #Covid19UK

In that respect ambiguity has been the key in deflecting the blame.
Shifting the blame is one thing this government is very good at.
The fact that we all know this would suggest otherwise.
However, stopping them doing it is another matter.
