Boris Johnson has tied himself and Britain in knots with the Government’s new Covid Tier policy – Bukipress

Scotch botch

THAT the Government’s new Covid Tier policy hinges on whether or not a Scotch egg counts as a substantial meal is proof that this country is descending into farce.

We understand the need to restrict social contact over the next few months: The NHS is at its busiest in winter, and it would be a disaster if the country was engulfed by another killer wave before vaccines are rolled out.

How can the British public be expected to follow such confusing rules?[/caption]

But it’s crystal clear that in their hurry to get a plan in place, Boris and his ministers have tied themselves — and this country — in knots.

Pub owners in Tier 2, who face enormous fines if their customers are caught breaking the rules, will be tearing their hair out today: Is serving a Scotch egg with a pint legal or not? How about two Scotch eggs?

Meanwhile, the financial support for wet pubs — which serve no food so are forbidden from opening across 99 per cent of the country — works out at a miserable £32 a day. That’s eight pints of a very reasonably priced £4 beer.

As for the Great British public, how can they be expected to follow rules not even Government ministers can get their heads around?

Clear guidance with clear evidence behind it is the key to keeping this grim virus in check until the vaccine has been rolled out.

Let’s see some more of it from the Government.

High St fighters

Thanks to crippling business rates and the indomitable rise of online retail giants, the British High Street was in trouble long before the pandemic hit.

But lockdown has turned a problem into a crisis.

The closure of Debenhams means another 12,000 job losses[/caption]

The closure of Debenhams this week means another 12,000 job losses — and it seems likely more chains will follow.

The good news is that decline is not inevitable. And we can all play a part in saving our towns and cities.

Christmas shopping might not feel patriotic, but by splashing a bit of cash in local shops this week, you’ll be breathing life into our flatlining economy – and helping to save someone’s livelihood.

Red alert

Long before Covid-19, the world knew all it needed to know about China and the Communist Party which runs the country.

We knew it was a one-party dictatorship. We knew it suppressed all domestic opposition. And we knew about the horrific way it treats ethnic minorities.

The Chinese Communist regime has worsened the damage coronavirus has inflicted on the world[/caption]

Now explosive secret data, from China’s own health chiefs, appears to prove something else that we’ve suspected for months: Through its secrecy and deceit the Chinese Communist regime worsened the damage coronavirus has inflicted on the world.

Time for the West to get tough.
