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

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.

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

Nothing much, I imagne. Just wfh if you can, and maybe covid passports for restaurants pubs etc.. Mind you, they have that in Wales and it"s made no difference. If he tries to impose any restrictions on household mixing or similar the public will laugh in his face.- especially after all the party shit.

This 100%.
They can force things shut and hamper me that way, but they have completely lost my voluntary compliance.

I am furious. How can the Prime Minister - the leader of our country- seriously expect the country to obey after his antics last year? The December which was miserable, we were banned from seeing our families and friends and told we could not have Christmas with our loved ones- all the while he was having cheese and wine nights? He can get fucked.

It will be "I am sorry but not sorry and yes of course we will investigate but that scapegoat has resigned and anyway, Plan B! Look we are a serious government doing serious things so stop talking about anything else".

@LivinLaVidaLoki

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.

But don't forget that time moves very differently in Covid world. In the past, it's always been "We are not currently planning on introducing XX measure.. We will be keeping a close eye on the situation." And then two days later, it's on the cards ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

Work from home and covid passes. It's not a catastrophe. No one will pay attention to household limits so that's a no go. Not schools yet.

Full lockdown would cost a fortune so also unlikely.

A doc told me that covid would be an issue for five years so we need to refine all these strategies constantly.
