The PM Just Maybe Listening Wednesfield!

Wow! When I asked Wednesfield Residents for their thoughts about the Governments advice a few days ago, and the indication then was that there was to be some concessions on the Lockdown.

You the Wednesfield Readers on my site said in strong fashion that the Government needed to be more cautious about moving the UK out of Lockdown.
It now seems that the Prime Minister is starting to act with that sort of advice uppermost in his mind. He must be giving a lot of thought to this, as he prepares to make his big statement to the nation on Sunday.

Well that is if the National Press are to be believed…The Telegraph is stating “Lockdown extended for another three weeks with only ‘slow, small’ lifting of restrictions.”

I know that those residents who responded to my original article printed and posted on my social media sites, where I asked Wednesfield what they felt about plans to lift the Lockdown. Readers of my social media came back strongly with their thoughts on this subject.

The overwhelming comment from Wednesfield readers urged the Government to be cautious. You urged that you didn’t want to risk a second peak of covid-19.

It appears that the Prime Minister may well have captured your mood Wednesfield!

Now we will have to wait and see what is in his Sunday address to the Nation to be sure!

In the meantime, last night was another huge success for our brave Front line carers and NHS professionals, when Wednesfield again turned out at in large numbers to support those brave workers in their epic battle with the Corona Virus.
