“Covid-19 inserted itself into this argument in unforeseen ways. Early on, the pandemic worked as a centripetal factor. When the UK government, with its deep pockets, placed itself firmly behind the self-interest of businesses and workers across the UK, it provided a potent reminder of the protective reach of the British state. But as the lifting of the lockdown loomed, the pandemic’s effect has become increasingly centrifugal. Johnson’s wish, partly under pressure from the Tory party’s right wing, to encourage renewed economic activity in spite of the continuing pandemic, has encouraged the devolved nations to move more cautiously and to differentiate themselves more sharply from Johnson and from England.”
