The brief(est)

Here’s a question which doesn’t seem remotely interesting: when did the government get its first briefing about COVID-19 from chief medical officer Brendan Murphy? 

It’s a dull question, a drab piece of diarising which you would think would be the business of mere seconds for the Prime Minister and Cabinet secretary to check, and would have an unremarkable and straightforward answer in the form of a date.

Or, perhaps, it would be an impenetrable secret made all the more tantalising by its very mystery!
