Yeah except there wasn’t a firm figure given, but a “maybe” waffle answer. She will do what the polling and public pressure dictate. She’s a true politician in all the worst ways.

And don’t forget, they’re a police state - what the government says, goes. There is no free thought by the people. Normally that’s a shit way to live, but during a pandemic, it works!
