I  hope that one positive thing to come out of this mess, is that governments around the world will look into their response and create a frameworks and strategies that deal with the next pandemic in a more measured and proportionate way.

Indeed.  I think you are one of those asking for a sophisticated and intelligent response last year.  Let's hope lessons really have been learned.

And that they do a full audit on where the default solution of enforced lockdowns as the solution to everything actually came from. Seems to me the template was set in Asia where lockdowns as a public health solution also had all sorts of spin off benefits in terms of population control and suppressing dissent etc.

Read this. You might be enlightened by what lessons were learned from SARS in the East for SARS-CoV-2 aka COVID-19 that the West ignored.

That’s time dated 2003. The political climate in places like China and Hong Kong or Singapore is much different now. Lockdowns have especially helped the floundering HK government suppress student protests in line with the line of travel China has set for transformation. I’m not sure that generally translates well to measures to be applied in London, Manchester or the IOM in 2021.

You really won’t at all. Unless someone is trying to book their usual 5 days in Royston Vasey. Why would essential workers be clogging up hotels either that is literally just made up. 

Essential workers are not clogging up hotels. Hotels are only allowed to accept them as residents. 

The prblem is that right now, (not in a couple of weeks, like in Bankers brain) uk accommodation is really at a premium. Yes,  there is apparently loads available online, provided you don't mind staying 100 miles from  where you want to be. 

I am not being negative. Please just simply be patient.

The Far East (Taiwan in particular) had taken heed of the SARS outbreak and had protocols and procedures in place (7 Covid deaths in total?) They locked down hard and fast to give them space and time to take the next steps.

The West was ill-prepared and ill-equipped, then it allowed economic and political concerns to take precedence.

We locked down hard and fast too. Remember that? Border controls and over 50 people thrown in prison. Nobody did anything for months under threat of ending up in Jurby. Has it really made any difference to the outcome now which is - go about your business managing your own risks with 2 people in hospital.

I was comparing more to the UK approach, but we were just a microcosm extension of that. Our approach was stuttering at best.

7 deaths out of how many million population (Taiwan) compared with 130,000-odd deaths out of 74 million population tells its own story in respect of success of the approach taken? But it could have been a lot, lot worse over here. That sea border has a lot to be thanked for, albeit with the odd leak.

I’m not sure it does. In Asia they don’t people farm the elderly. Few of the old and vulnerable are in ‘homes’ which are infection magnets. They’re living with family who assume the risks and take the risks to protect in an isolated environment. Equally they’re controlled economies. They don’t care if you lose your job or if you end up destitute or if you commit suicide. There’s no MERA in China. You’re just a lockdown casualty and as they control the media nobody will ever know. But by stopping you going out likely nobody will ever find out if you actually killed yourself or not. That example is ancient based on the SARS outbreak of 2003 it’s got nothing to do with what applies now.

What they had learned from 2002 was put in place in anticipation of a new viral epidemic. They saw this coming. Many of the Far Eastern economies (China excepted) are now Western/Capitalist models but they still fared better.

The West was/is thoroughly unprepared. The figures prove that.

SARS (a respiratory disease that is caught at close quarters) is very different to the transmission pattern of covid-19. Equally society in Asia functions very differently to Europe. They don’t cram their elderly into infection risk farms enmasse for a start. I’d love to see the UK figures with UK care home deaths stripped out of them. I’d also like to see what UK or European society would look like based on the Chinese model of we’re stopping you working. There’s no compensation. If you decide to top yourself that’s your choice. It won’t make the papers. You can work again when we decide you can work again. If you can’t pay your debts tough.

Nobody,but I'm not glued to news/social media 24/7. 

So according to you folks get "conditioned" to believing that Covid 19 will end humanity if they are on news/social media 24/7.

Errrr as by your own admission you are not on news/social media 24/7 how can you possibly know this?

You forgot about the four fatalities from the last outbreak...

Read this: https://www.spiked-online.com/2021/04/30/why-lockdown-has-become-a-lifestyle/

Aside from many interesting asides on the disaster that has been, and is yet to be exposed, governmental myopia on the handling of COVID, direct reference is made to the SAGE minutes that triggered the 'fear' campaign launched by government and ably assisted by a supine media (look no further than Mr Toad's press conferences).

There can be no doubt that 'conditioning' of the population took place to ensure compliance. A SAGE member admitted that: '‘The British people have been subjected to an unevaluated psychological experiment without being told that is what’s happening’.
