The £18BN Cost of Plan B


As I have noted several times on this site, there has been a coordinated campaign by certain sections of the media, political activists posing as doctors and FAKE SAGE for the government to immediately go to Plan B.

These people say that Plan B doesn't cost anything. This of course is nonsense, the media today report that the costs of Plan B (were it to be enacted for 5 months) would be £18BN.

As per Politico:

"On the eve of Chancellor Rishi Sunak's budget statement and government-wide spending review on Wednesday, the internal Treasury impact assessment warns that moving to Plan B would cost the economy between £11 billion and £18 billion in the period up until March 2022 — or more than £800 million per week.

The Treasury's main concern is over the effect that millions of people switching back to working from home would have on businesses, particularly in inner-city areas and towns, while working from home is envisaged to have only a moderately positive impact on reducing transmission."

Additionally, Covid passports would be a kick in the nuts for the entertainment industry, without any benefits for the nations' health:

"It finds that a COVID certification scheme would reduce transmission at these events by 40-45 percent. But it warns that, because only 2-13 percent of overall community transmission takes place in venues covered by the scheme, there would only be a "moderate impact from reduced community transmission." The figures suggest certification would reduce overall community transmission by 1-5 percent.

Vaccine passports would have a "high impact" on the economy and could cause "wider impacts" exacerbating Britain's supply chain crisis, the assessment finds.

In other words Plan B and Covid passports would have large economic costs, but produce little health benefits! is brought to you by "The Living Brand"
