The key to escape
TWO self-inflicted problems put the brakes on our swift march back to normal.
One is Quarantine for seven days must be cut down to five immediately.
The case for the whole week is collapsing.
The other problem is the slowdown in the reception of reinforcement.
Not long ago we stab a million a day.
Now it’s down to 141,495, with 62% of us taking that third dose. . . quite, but still too low.
The commendable Boris Johnson has kept his nerve Plan B while the SNP and Welsh Labor are panicking to impose stricter restrictions but have made no difference.
Their latest case rate is higher than that of the UK.
But to finally open the door to the exit, he must cut the crippling rules of isolation, while millions of others must. be promoted.
As England’s deputy chief medical officer Jonathan Van-Tam say, the more people do, the sooner we will be free.
Get your third shot.
This two-year nightmare could end as soon as February.
Man does not act
THEN Boris runs the risk of being the “can’t do it”.
That would be a sad change for the man who got Brexit done, won the election and led the world on vaccines.
But consider his central mission, to “upgrade” those areas that lag behind the prosperity of London.
For all the talk, there is very little action.
With an election perhaps only two years away, time is running out.
Most voters still don’t know what “level up” means.
For us, those are high, clean, crime-free and thriving streets.
Better road. London level public transport.
Enough high-paying jobs that young dancers don’t feel they have to move to the capital.
All worth it. We know Boris agrees. Why can’t we continue with it?
Even his immediate policies to reduce the rising cost of living, which disproportionately affect the old Red Wall seats, are drawing opposition from him.
He complained that the removal of VAT on energy was “a blunt tool”.
So what if it cuts the bill?
Slashing green taxes and facing the howls of the eco lobby will help even more.
Is he prepared to do it?
We wish we could be more optimistic.
Enough of the negative, PM.
You have a big part. Use it or you may lose it.
WE won’t cry salty tears at the end of the ketchup packet.
They are nasty contaminating pieces of plastic containing a tiny fraction.
Does not fit a doll from a bottle.
But we have to ask, with everything else going on. . .
Doesn’t the Government have bigger fish to fry?
