Protecting pater?

According to the PM’s office yesterday, there is ‘zero prospect’ of a lockdown on movement in London.  Given the PM’s performance to date, my guess is that that is code for ‘about the middle of next week, then’.  With the Chancellor due to deliver his third budget in ten days later today, the only real question is probably whether the PM’s lockdown comes before or after the Chancellor’s fourth budget next week.
The PM and the entire government look to be increasingly out of their depth, completely unable to explain why it is both essential that we all avoid restaurants, pubs etc and not essential for the government to take steps to ban people from doing so, leaving staff obliged to travel to work in almost empty premises.  Could it really be as simple as trying to avoid having his father locked up?
