If I had a 100 billion pounds to spend on a covid #moonshoot then I would likely spend it on making sure sick people get paid to stay home.
Course, then you can't give it all to a big private company run by your mates. So that's no good for the Conservative party. They need to funnel the billions to big private companies to skim of their profits.
So they'll try and fail to make a super-tech testing system instead.
Which, even if it worked, wouldn't help because people still couldn't afford to stay home even if they find they're sick.
