Ed Davey has to self isolate

Ed Davey announced last night that he and his family have to self isolate as someone who helps him and his wife Emily care for their disabled son John has tested positive for Coronavirus.

All of us at LDV wish the family well and hope that the person who tested positive makes a quick and full recovery.

This obviously means that Ed is not going to be able to be out and about as a leader would normally be during this phase of the national and local election campaigns which will be very frustrating for him, but I’m sure that he and his team will find creative ways for him to be involved in the national debate.

    Yes, it will be frustrating for him and those around him. It is equally interesting that it happens just before an election and puts him out of action.

    Ed is responsible. He is more useful on zoom, a leader is meant to lead, this means ideas, talks, encouraging others, liberating talent.

    The unlock has not freed anyone really, it has gone back to same old…

    And we could beat this all over this planet, but look, a mess, the virus worse elsewhere, the vaccines guarded, hoarded. Yes, even here.
