As I write this article I wonder whether, by the time it is finished, it will still be current. The news is developing so quickly that we are running out of paper (or would be if so much of it hadn’t already been stockpiled...). The Government is doing all it can and that means legislation.

It runs to 329 pages and it is suggested in the bill that it could remain in place until March 2022.

Is it possible for the world to forget when we have such a vast encyclopedia at our fingertips?
