Two Week Circuit Breaker Lockdown – what the rules could be

Bad news, folks. The party isn’t over for Boris – judging by this Mad Friday reveller taking a swig and a dig at the PM.

The BoJo lookalike wore a T-shirt inviting people to live it up at No10 as he enjoyed a night out in Manchester.

The party-goer was also seen with cheese and wine.

Mr Johnson has come under increasing fire since the Mirror exclusively revealed a party was held for staff in the run-up to Christmas last year just as the rest of us were told to lockdown.

Polls suggest the PM may now be drinking at the last chance saloon after a crippling by-election loss this week to the Lib Dems.

He has also been accused of muddled messaging over Covid.

And, despite soaring rates, people still celebrated on the most popular night for Xmas dos. They hit Leeds’ streets and went Santa-mad in Swansea.

At London’s World Darts Championships some went a bit Laa-Laa in Teletubby suits.

This week adults needed to show a vaccine passport with two doses or a negative Covid test to get into some venues including nightclubs but it did not stop people dressing up and heading out.

With just a week to go before Christmas many people went to parties in festive gear while others had drinks with friends.

While there may not have been as many people as normal, there were still a lot out and about.

It comes with advice being for people to “prioritise” certain events and “de-prioritise” others.

The Chief Medical Officer for England, Chris Whitty, pointed out many people are going to be infected with Omicron if they socialise, so there was a choice about how much to do.

“Don’t mix with people you don’t have to for either work or for the sort of family things that really matter to you, would be my general advice,” he said. “But people have to make their own choices”.

He added: “I think what most people are doing, and I would think this seems very sensible, is prioritising the social interactions that really matter to them.

“And, to protect those ones, de-prioritising ones that matter much less to them.

“I think that’s going to become increasingly important as we, for example, go into the Christmas period.”
