While not discounting other failings, I think the vast majority of people would agree that overall the government’s vaccination programme is being rolled out with great speed and efficiency.

And of course it is being implemented by dedicated people of all political persuasions.

While it is essential to hold the government, any government, carefully to account for its actions, a failure to acknowledge its successes undermines the credibility of the entire process.

Thus I’m afraid Mr Tempest’s latest criticism (Letters, Feb 5) comes across as a simple case of sour grapes.
