@ElectraBlue

I am done.

I am no longer listening to these clowns or following any further restrictions.

Had my 3 vaccines, will keep sanitised my hands but I no longer believe a single word that Johnson says.

We have to live with this virus. Lockdowns don't work, the economy can't sustain any more lockdowns.

Enough of this joke. There is still no evidence that the new variant is in any way more deadly, just the opposite in fact.

This. Sums up exactly how I feel too.

He won't resign from a stage with Whitty and Vallence, it will be purely Covid related.

I have just looked on the TV guide and the 6pm press conference is still not appearing. Maybe they want to keep it quiet…..!

Just got a notification on my bbc news app saying its due to start soon.

Definitely won't be vaccine passports as they are just a conspiracy theory aren't they?

Given that omicron isn't so far causing a surge in hospital admissions and the people in hospital is fairly stable.
That they said the review was in 3 weeks and not 2 and the huge publicity around the video. Is it not possible that todays presser is about addressing that? Much like they did with Hancock and Cummings?
If they said that we are far away from plan b two weeks ago then how are we at it now?
I think given the above and the publicity around the parties - plural - that they had last year most people would find more restrictions tonight to be a complete piss take from a bunch of lying, hypocritical arseholes.

@CorrBlimeyGG

And what the hell are Whitty and Vallance doing still standing by him? Will one of them grow a backbone and call the liars out?

Yeah. I respect Whitty and Vallance. They must despair at BJ and friends

@Switch82

What is Plan B? BJ expects us to listen to him after what’s happened? He’s lost all credibility. I’m not saying he’s wrong in what he wants to do as I respect Vallance and Whitty but BJ has lost all momentum.

www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-response-autumn-and-winter-plan-2021/covid-19-response-autumn-and-winter-plan-2021

It's here, but you have to scroll down quite a long way.

It's basically masks, WFH, and covid passes, some local powers and a reminder that the coronavirus act is still in place until March 2022 if they need to bring anything back. Like furlough.

They’re not standing by Boris. They’re standing there for the benefit of public health. Boris is the PM and he’s a utter liability to the country. I’m pleased at least we’ve got some people there who people might still trust.

Making vaccines available for kids aged 5-11 (with parental consent) might be a good move.

Boosters for everyone else 18+ would be nice too.

We've fallen behind rest of world on this.
