Mark Easton follows suit

You know that thing about how pretty much every single question from the BBC's posse of political reporters at recent Downing Street briefings has asked precisely the same thing, "Why isn't the Government acting fast enough or hard enough over lockdown?"...

Well, today's briefing, starring Priti Patel, featured a rare appearance by the BBC's home editor Mark Easton. 

What question would he ask? Something a little bit different? 

No, he asked exactly the same question:
A question for the Home Secretary. We were warned we may be health facing health service catastrophe, so why are the rules of this lockdown not as tough as they were last spring?
Journalists have the opportunity to ask anything they like, questions the public might like an answer to, but they all ask that. Why?
