This is Professor Andrew Oswald from that hotbed of sociological drivel, Warwick 'Uni'.
The Prof wants to keep over the '50s at home for an extended period on the basis that Covid 19 is more likely to polish them off. He wrote, "police officers would have to be given the power to fine those caught breaking the age rule to ensure it was followed"
The Prof is so indolent in his thinking he cannot come up with a solution recognising each age group contains high-risk elements: those with underlying health issues...the unfit or, more likely, the obese.
The Dame wrote to the Prof telling him to buck his ideas up and think constructively.
Instead of a blanket lockdown for over 50's he should have recommended over 50's ask their GP to provide a certificate that they suffered no underlying health issues nor were obese.
