You have a recurring theme of talking to seemingly ignorant people who didn't understand things very recently, but their comments now should be considered a deep and wise reflection of the current situation.
Other than on this forum (l don't belong to any others) I've heard nothing more than a resigned and moderately anxious attitude which does not blame this or any government for the situation we're in. It is an extraordinary situation and we have the world's most global city where most of the infections have been, both by number and per capita. Can you get some of those 'l didn't even understand the political system but now l have a relevant and informed opinion on pandemic control' to post here?
I wont even try (and fail). They have no interest in cycling and I expect no interest in justifying their position and it's anecdotal anyway.
My impression from talking to them was not shock about the pandemic or resignation about the pandemic etc. but more about the way Johnson is coming across, the impression he is giving about his decision making process.
