Hancock wants less devolution of health

 Given the lying and contempt for the advice of experts at the top level of government exposed in the Covid-19 Inquiry, surely more devolution of public health matters would improve things? Yet Matt Hancock in his evidence of the last few days opined that when an epidemic strikes all decisions should be taken in Westminster. 

When a community recognises what needs to be done, puts aside party and other politics, and coordinates in a common cause, great things can be achieved. Ceredigion's successful fight against the SARS-Cove2 virus was only vitiated when outside authority stepped in and forced the county to accept returning university students, bringing fresh battalions of virus with them.
