There’s been a huge jump since the end of August
I find the above chart absolutely fascinating because it shows very dramatically the changes in the public’s perception of how the pandemic is going. We are not back to the May to July period but there has been a lot of movement in in the past few days. A 32% to 54% jump is massive.
May be the reality of what the pandemic has done and fears of the immediate future are part of the problem. Add on top of that the exam grade row and the U-turns that Johnson and EdSec Williamson had to perform.
Looking back to late March when the lockdown started I doubt if many would have thought that it would still be such a problem six months later.
