Abstract

Lockdown part one, when we were clapping on our doorsteps and putting rainbows up in our windows, as sad as it was, made me feel like I was a part of something. The whole nation was backing our NHS, cared about our frontline workers and we were just all a bit nicer to each other. Months on, approaching what is essentially Lockdown 2.0, I couldn’t feel more different. In less than a year, the UK has gone from hating each other over Brexit, to loving and caring for each other, to feeling, yet again, more divided than ever before.
