The Daily Mail revels in the drama of what it calls a “cabinet at war” over the new coronavirus restrictions for England. It says a string of senior ministers opposed the ban on gatherings of seven or more people, which comes into effect from Monday. A cabinet source tells the paper that the so-called “rule of six” was opposed by every member of the PM’s coronavirus strategy committee on Tuesday, apart from Health Secretary Matt Hancock – who, it says, drove the decision across the line.
