The British government on Monday lifted pandemic restrictions on daily life in England, scrapping all social distancing in a step slammed by scientists and opposition parties as a dangerous leap into the unknown. From midnight (2300 GMT Sunday), nightclubs were able to reopen and other indoor venues allowed to run at full capacity, while legal mandates covering the wearing of masks and working from home were scrapped. Prime Minister Boris Johnson—who is self-isolating after his health minister was infected—urged the public to remain prudent and for any laggards to join the two-thirds of UK adults who are now fully vaccinated.

“slammed by scientists”
Which ones? Are they interchangeable?
They don’t talk about deaths anymore because deaths have plummeted.
They talk about cases, but not the number of cases because there aren’t that many.
They talk breathlessly about the percentage increase in cases from last week.
200% rise in cases! OMG!
1 case last week! 3 cases this week! OMG! OMG! OMG!
That’s no working anymore, so now there is a new WTF variant!
OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG!
What’s the catch ?
If you are afraid then stay HOME or if you are so inclined get vaccinated if you believe these vaccines will work for you. Otherwise let people live their lives in Liberty.
A momentary lapse of reason...
Just to give them a little taste of freedom until the beatings begin again in the Fall.
We’re going to have new “variants” every day by the 2022 elections. It’ll be the only thing the MSM talks about, other than how horrible Trump is.
“If you are afraid then stay HOME or if you are so inclined get vaccinated if you believe these vaccines will work for you. Otherwise let people live their lives in Liberty.”
Amen, FRiend. It’s time for this travesty to END!
Yes! Hear! Hear!
Variant = New release from Wuhan???
I think it was planned before the Delta spike stats
“Prime Minister Boris Johnson—who is self-isolating after his health minister was infected”
Didn’t he...already have it, and supposedly almost croak from it?
If the restrictions haven’t worked, why not?
Yep..he got it a few weeks before Trump did..was in ICU
If covid is the deadly killer then Boris must be thinking that the people that don’t vax will die off.
If covid is not the deadly killer then nothing much will come of this.
Otherwise this change of course makes no sense.
he’s got a new baby at home (1yo); probably just being over-cautious. Babies are vulnerable to CCPVirus syndrome.
