It's not random. Key Coronavirus articles are not behind a paywall as they're of national/global importance. Hence the comprehensive posts on Twitter too.

I think that's setting us up for a shorter extension. So when they say two weeks we go "Phew, that's good, just two more weeks not a month!"

BREAKING: The High Court has ruled Michael Gove broke the law in handing a public contract to associates of his and Dominic Cummings at Public First.

The Court ruled a reasonable observer would think there was a real risk they won the contract because of favouritism.

More on that High Court case, from Sky:
Quote:
COVID-19: Government broke law by awarding coronavirus contract to firm with links to Dominic Cummings, High Court rules

The judgment concerned a contract worth 560,000 that was awarded to the communications agency Public First.

The government broke the law by handing a coronavirus contract to an associate of ministers and the prime minister's former chief aide, a judge has ruled.

In a judgment on Wednesday, the High Court deemed the awarding of the 560,000 arrangement to communications agency Public First, which has connections with cabinet minister Michael Gove and Dominic Cummings, was "unlawful".

The case also concluded that there was "an apparent bias" surrounding the agreement.

I'm convinced my second jab was salt water, never felt a thing afterwards.

Why didn't you link to the article then as it is not free in the true sense of the word as it requires some form of subscription. A free article would require no information at all. Therefore we can put this in the "not of national/global importance" section.

Re: Coronavirus

Have you noticed that the UK Covid Data shows hospitalisations on a 6 day lag behind the reported case count?

Makes judgement rather difficult.

I'm not sure which article you're after

I helpfully shared a link to the FT's page containing its free Coronavirus articles and these do not require a subscription.
