Can't argue with your first sentence, guilty as charged. As to trusting the experts, yes, yes, yes, and maybe that should have been our tactic from the off, but what did we get? Advice taken from that creepy piece of sh*t Cummings and a rapid escalation in cases/fatalities.
How would we have been stuck with EU decisions? You stated correctly that we are out of the EU, barring the transitional period, but what harm would it have done to be part of a consortium trying to ensure that enough ventilators get to those who need them? How is it that anybody with enough wealth or influence has been able to get tested while our NHS staff are crying out for them, as well as PPE that still, shockingly, hasn't been provided to all those who need it?
I really hope that our industries can get the ventilators needed asap, does this really mean that we did the right thing by turning down the opportunity to get them earlier, have they given any firm date as to when they will be ready?
We've had a government minister presenting falsehoods as to how many people are currently being tested, and still hospital staff are being neglected, still a little flexibility will probably be all we need, stay safe.
