The Never-ending (Lockdown) Story

Boris Johnson is planning to renew England's COVID laws for another six months to cover a possible (planned?) winter surge.

The Coronavirus Act provisions have to be renewed every six months and Downing Street wants a vote on carrying them through to March after Parliament returns next week.

Such a move is likely to anger Tory backbenchers, where many MPs want to see the economic recovery given priority. 35 MPs voted against extending the rules in March and given the successful vaccination rollout since then, it paves the way for a larger rebellion.

Such a long 2 weeks to flatten that curve! Stop complying TODAY.
