Well you could of had exemptions for freight or anything important forPeople travel should have been stopped but look what happened when France did just that for 48 hours.
Why do you say the new strain has entered the UK from abroad? It has been shown to be 'out of control' here, but only a few cases supposedly found elsewhere as yet. IF that is the case, then doesn't that point to the new variant being the result of a mutation that has occurred in the UK, and then spread elsewhere from here.What has been learnt since March as it looks

And your point is??? That is how governments work, that is why politicians that earn a pretty mediocre income can become extremely wealthy in a short period of time.To shine a light on one of the greatest spending sprees in Britain’s postwar era, The New York Times analyzed a large segment of it, the roughly 1,200 central government contracts that have been made public, together worth nearly $22 billion. Of that, about $11 billion went to companies either run by friends and associates of politicians in the Conservative Party, or with no prior experience or a history of controversy. Meanwhile, smaller firms without political clout got nowhere….
The contracts that have been made public are only a part of the total. Citing the urgency of the pandemic, the government cast aside the usual transparency rules and awarded contracts worth billions of dollars without competitive bidding. To date, just over half of all of the contracts awarded in the first seven months remain concealed from the public, according to the National Audit Office, a watchdog agency…
In the government’s rush to hand out contracts, officials ignored or missed many red flags. Dozens of companies that won a total of $3.6 billion in contracts had poor credit, and several had declared assets of just $2 or $3 each. Others had histories of fraud, human rights abuses, tax evasion or other serious controversies. A few were set up on the spur of the moment or had no relevant experience — and still won contracts.
