    If he lived on a council estate in Sunderland he may have some credence, but even his fellow professionals disagree with him –

    You do realise that the one person saying that one opinion is gospel truth is the OP, who you agree with, right? The other respondents have either joked or disagreed without declaring their view as the truth.

    More evidence is coming out that more people will die through lack of treatment,the institute for Cancer research as said more people could die from cancer through lack of surgery a 3 month delay could make the difference tumours being curable or not. And I know we can all see the unemployment is now going off the scale and 60 million are at risk of extreme poverty.

    I see, I guess that means we should have let coronavirus spread more rapidly through the population, potentially overwhelm healthcare and have more people die because of it. And it must be ok because those dying would mostly be the ill or elderly, so their right to life doesn’t matter.

    “If I choose to go to the theatre, then I know the risk and everyone else attending knows the risk. It is the individual’s right to decide this for themselves.”

    1) We may be individuals but we are part of a community.

    2) The theatres are closed.

    I am not so sure those who come into contact with someone who got coronavirus from a theatre when they’re not there (e.g. they catch it from you when shopping) would be so forgiving if they end up suffering badly, because the theatre goer prioritised their own entertainment over the rights of others. Nor would they be appreciative if hospital spaces become more limited because of it.

    My point is that if those in charge of the theatre deem it unsafe to reopen it then the argument is moot.

    Or does Sumption envisage going down there, banging on the door demanding they open up for him?

    That’s a fair point. My argument was directed more at Sumption and his sympathisers than you. Those who want theatres open for their ‘freedom.’
