Praise for A Timeline Of The Plague Year

“With the success of the vaccination programme, the fear of mass deaths is fading. But unless we know how we ended up with the highest death rate in the world we cannot hold our government to account or make the necessary changes to prevent another public health catastrophe. This detailed timeline of what went wrong and when is a vital part of the accountability process” – Professor Molly Scott Cato, former-MEP.

“When you read this clear, factual timeline of events with an unprejudiced eye, it is impossible to avoid the conclusion that the Government response was often complacent, mistaken, delayed and flawed, causing tens of thousands of avoidable deaths” – Peter Tatchell, human rights campaigner.

“This timeline is timely! We desperately need to examine and understand what the government did and did not do in the face of this pandemic. We need to know were they negligent, incompetent or worse – that is, guilty of pursuing policies that endangered the population? This book helps us decide. Please read it. Our lives depend on it. It might happen again” – Michael Rosen, poet, and author of Many Different Kinds of Love: A Story of Life, Death and the NHS.
