On the new lockdown rules put in place by the Prime Minister, Shapps explained: “Look, I think the thing to say is, at the beginning of this [lockdown] the message was quite simple; everyone should just hunk it out and stay at home.
“Inevitably as you unlock that, in the need to not unlock everything in order to continue to control the virus – the so called R rate – it does mean you have to make some rules and it’s going to be the case where there has to be a cut off line somewhere.”
Dan, eager to interject, chimed in to say: “I think people appreciate that, but you talk about common sense.
“But it means potential buyers and renters, and childminders and cleaners can go into a property but members of a family who live in a different household can’t. That doesn’t sound like common sense!”
