Reason: Pandemic Rules Are Only for the Little People
The defining moment in the “rules for thee but not for me” ethos of the ruling class during the COVID-19 pandemic may have come when Neil Ferguson, the epidemiologist behind Britain’s lockdown policy, met with his married girlfriend in defiance of the restrictions he promoted. Eager to threaten the common people with penalties if they failed to socially distance, he saw no reason to inconvenience himself the same way—although at least he conceded that propriety required him to resign his government post when the trysts were discovered in May.
This was just the beginning. There have been many violations of Covid rules by “leaders” since. Reason does a nice summary but there have been even more instances than the magazine lists.
