#Covid19 #planB rules will be lifted in England on January 27

Jabber Johnson: he says people still need to be vaccinated as the Omicron variant is “not a mild disease for everyone”.

Boris Johnson has announced that health protection regulations that he brought in to minimise the effect of the Omicron variant of Covid-19 will be ended on Thursday, January 27.

For clarity, this means:

  • The end of mandatory Covid passes in England, with businesses allowed to use them if they choose
  • Mandatory face masks will end, including in classrooms for secondary students and on public transport – meaning people will not be criminalised for choosing not to wear them
  • The end to work from home guidance
  • Restrictions on care homes will be eased, with detail to be released
  • However, there will still be a legal requirement to self-isolate if you test positive for Covid

As Johnson made his announcement, a Scottish MP asked: “Is the PM scrapping the rules because he doesn’t understand them?” in a harsh – but fair – comment on the prime minister’s latest “Partygate” excuse.

Johnson said his government got the tough decisions right – but did he?

He failed to identify the seriousness of Omicron when it was first reported. He didn’t close the UK’s borders; he practically invited Omicron into the country.

He failed to impose new health protection measures in time to prevent more than a million people from catching the new strain of Covid-19.

He failed to equip the NHS to take the added strain created by the two failures listed above, meaning doctors and nurses were pushed to their limit and beyond. The future of healthcare in the UK is looking bleak because these professionals will be reassessing their decision to work here.

And there is no guarantee that a Johnson government will not make the same mistakes again, if another variant of Covid-19 washes up on the UK’s shores.

Every decision Johnson has made about Covid-19 has been determined by whether a Tory, or a Tory donor, can make money from it.

This announcement merely highlights more reasons Johnson must be removed from office.

    Only reason little fascist dictator duck johnson decided to remove all restrictions is because he knows his fascist tory donors will increase their bloated profits.

    Once upon a time long long ago governments supposedly existed to act for the people’s health, welfare and well being now of course governments only exist to exploit their peasants, steal their money and increase wealth of their party donors!

    Over 180,000+ women and men have died as a direct result of the fascist tory government’s systemic refusal to act during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic! Now we can await another wave of coronavirus and what will little fascist dictator duck johnson say? ‘Not my problem guv I didn’t know another wave would happen!
