Lady Violet Manners has criticised the government's decision to put England into lockdown as she slammed new rules as 'unsustainable' online..
The socialite, 27, spent the first lockdown with her four siblings at Belvoir Castle, their 15,000 acre estate in Leicestershire, as well as her parents the Duke and Duchess of Rutland, who divorced eight years ago.
She has now revealed how she feels the measures are making the country 'a nation of fear' and argued instead that the young should 'shoulder the economy' while measures are put in place to 'protect the old.'
Sharing a series of stories over the weekend, Lady Violet wrote: 'This virus isn't going anywhere and so we need to learn to adjust long term.

These lockdowns aren't sustainable.'

She continued: 'I don't discount the strain of this virus will/would put on the NHS this winter. I have been/am aware it is already heavily under funded/resourced.
'But should we not, having built them for this very reason, kat von d beauty secrets make use of the Nightingale Hospitals and the 13,000 extra nurses who have enrolled and let the young shoulder the economy and support our collective ambition to have some resemblance of our culture, high streets, restaurants and life left at the end of this?
In a series of online posts, Lady Violet said Britain had 'become a nation of fear' and criticised the decision to bring in another lockdown in England 
'Take a pragmatic long term view and set rules in motion that are sustainable.'
She added: 'I'm lucky (and aware of that).

Young people leaving university unable to get jobs/internships/start their careers are with no hope. 
'Those with existing horrific health conditions are being sidelined and those who suffer mental health issues catapulted into extremely trying conditions with no sunny spring days to support them and help us all through.'
She continued: 'My dad is high risk.

I don't wish him to catch the virus. But I know, as does he, that we are becoming a nation of fear.

'This virus' longer term affects because of the  short term knee jerk reactions I believe will develop as deep and divided intergenerational issues and frankly as a country on the brink of a new wave of British politics - with Brexit on the horizon - we need to be investing in our younger generations and the future as much as we of course need to put measures in place to protect the old.' 
Lady Violet's impassioned comments come months after her sister Lady Alice, 25, confessed she thought 'all the complaining' about lockdown was 'a bit much'. 
The socialite told the   the family set up a 'cooking and clearing-up rota' to help them all avoid arguments, saying: 'I secretly quite like being quite reclusive, as long as I'm out in the countryside and not in London.  We're not asked that much, really, just stay at home.

I think all the complaining is a bit much.' 
The sisters spent the first lockdown with their third sister Lady Eliza, 22 as well as their two younger brothers: Lord Hugo, 16, and Charles, Marquess of Granby, the 20-year-old heir to the family estate.
