KU students’ complex relationship with government restrictions

By Ashley Bautista Domingo Oct 14, 2020

While the majority of Kingston University students seem to back the new government’s restrictions, some of them expressed mixed feelings particularly towards the Prime Minister and his methods of dealing with the pandemic. 

Boris Johnson seems to always be a topic of discussion, especially this year. The number of coronavirus cases is increasing despite the government’s announcement of new restrictions, such as the 10 pm curfew and the ‘rule of six’.

Is the country progressing? Has anything changed during the past six months? These are the questions that students would all like to be answered. Most importantly, their thoughts and feelings about how Boris Johnson has dealt with the pandemic revealed nothing but disappointment towards the Prime Minister.

Here’s what Psychology students Linda, Althea, and Khyle had to say:

The three students from Kingston University couldn’t be more honest about their opinion on the whole Covid-19 situation. Is the Prime Minister “setting us up”? 

Other students have expressed concerns about the efficacy of the rule of six, and whether it can be effective in stopping the spread of the virus. 

Olive, Abdul and Tory reveal their worries: 

Students are not the only ones having mixed feelings regarding the  restrictions: in fact, it is not sure for how long the current rules will be in place now that the new tier system has been announced.
