Johnson’s reign of coronavirus confusion: his government wants us to visit parents ONE AT A TIME

Boris Johnson with his mother Charlotte Johnson Wahl (right) (and sister Rachel, centre). Has he seen his mother since the Covid-19 crisis began?

What is this lunacy?

When you saw Boris Johnson telling us to get back to work on Sunday, did you realise his new idea of guidance means that we can visit family members – but only one at a time, even if they live in the same house?

… or something?

It’s not entirely clear. Phil and Holly on This Morning tried to explain it on Monday but I was even more confused at the end of it:

So the next day, they asked Matt Hancock to explain:

“Utterly bonkers” is being kind.

These ridiculous rules from the Tories are setting us all up to fail.

Either we can go and see our relatives or we can’t.

And if we can see our family one at a tme, why not other people?

Is this just an excuse to infect older people with the coronavirus, so the Tories won’t have to pay pensions and can raid the fund for cash to pay for the pandemic (just a thought)?

Whatever the reasoning, Hancock and Johnson are creating openings for a new Covid-19 outbreak.

    Well, I don’t have that problem as my parents passed away long ago, but I won’t be going out of my way to see anyone just yet. Personally I’m just going to continue with lockdown and restrict my movements to essential shopping/exercise etc. Although having said that I am still volunteering at the foodbank twice a week where I do unavoidably come into contact with other volunteers though we try to maintain our distance where possible.

    He probably never thinks of anyone but himself. With his parents divorced and living in separate homes, he doesn’t have that problem. Just kick the step-parents etc out for a bit.

      thank you. you just answered one of the questions going round in my head as to whether he actually has parents and the other question was if he has parents does he actually care about them………..he would still have to choose which one he went to see first if they are divorced and live in separate homes though. .. that blank look on his face , the way his mouth is set ,especially in that video, makes me think he doesn’t care about them at all.#(<Maybe he cares more about his nanny if he was brought up like a lot of rich kids are. J Edington. your first sentence is probably the truest thing ever said about him (and most of those in the top ranks of our present govt.)

    Well they culled the stock through benefits denial why not use the virus further to cull pensioners hmm

    forgot to say, my mother died 43 yrs ago come DEC. dad died 31 yrs ago. so i dont have to choose on that question./ but i do have 2 kids. so far ive seen nothing about not seeing both those at same time.. both are now single. one has a boyfriend.. but doesn’t live with her. other has a daughter and 3 sons. the daughter we are in most contact with and she has a daughter in turn.(aged 3 in Sept).. i know this is a daft statement and i wouldn’t dream of doing this and I also know the answer. but it doesn’t say all those family members could / couldn’t come n see me, all at once….. only that they can only see one GRANDPARENT at a time….(my other half died 7 years ago, so not in the equation with us.)…….. in effect no.i know its just wording thats not been made clear there . i would expect my grandaughter to see her dad first. along with the little girl. (single mum ,cant leave her at home. boyfriend/child’s dad doesn’t live with her. ) as long as distance is kept. apparently my great granddaughter has learnt that she cant have cuddles yet. so she says hiya, waves then blows kisses. but not all 2 yr olds will understand that and maybe she doesn’t understand WHY she cant have cuddles .not easy to explain to that age after all.
    so many conotations in different family groups.

    I have been enjoying reading your blog posts BUT please monitor the adverts shown on your page. The Bear Grylls finance related ad has been proven to be a scam and needs to be removed. It undermines your blog and I have serious issues with sharing your posts due to the inclusion of adverts like this. I know it will be pounced on.

    1. Mike Sivier Post author

      I don’t see the adverts you see. The only way I know about these things is if I am told, so your comments about being unhappy sharing my articles with such adverts are misplaced. By all means tell me there’s an advert you think is a scam, so I can check it out and block it if necessary, but please don’t jump to false conclusions about my site and broadcast them.

    2. Mike Sivier Post author

      Do you have details of this advert? I can’t find it based on what you’ve given me alone.
