There are new restrictions in Great Britain: the green pass for major events and the reference to ‘work from home when possible’. Johnson: “Omicron is spreading much faster than Delta, we need to get to work.” And behind the choice of the Prime Minister is also an attempt to distract attention from the scandal of the Christmas party
from our reporter
London – NSOris Johnson decided to impose new restrictions in a Great Britain: in response to the progress of the variable Omicron, but also an attempt to distract public opinion from him Christmas party scandal Which in these hours shake the government of its foundations. The Prime Minister announced his commitment to working from home whenever possible, as well as introducing a form of “Green Pass” for the first time, albeit limited to nightclubs and large events. The government provides – permission – to extend mask use to most enclosed spaces.
The prime minister said the transition to Plan B was “proportionate and responsible”, stressing that “we must be humble with this virus”. These measures were until yesterday evening, Saturday, the split of the government: but then it was decided to speed up the source’s timing for the scandal to erupt..
For more than a week, Johnson tried – unsuccessfully – to get rid of him: daily mirror It was revealed that it happened in Downing Street in December last year Christmas party, while banned by anti-Covid regulations.
For days, ministers and spokespersons tangled in improbable justifications, denying it was a real party and insisting that the rules be respected. But last night it showed up sexy video where you see Downing Street employees at a mock press conference, I’m kidding about the party And how it could be justified in public: And this morning, the image of Boris’ then-spokeswoman, Allegra Stratton, resumed derision, on all the front pages of the newspapers. The reactions were bewilderment and indignation. Johnson clumsily tried to apologize in Parliament this morning during a chaotic session and promised an internal investigation. But he insisted that no rules were broken. However, his and his government’s credibility is in tatters.
How will Boris now impose the ban on the population when he was the first to break it? In a country where, since the beginning of the pandemic, respect for the rules has always been tasked with the automatic cooperation of citizens rather than real controls, the danger is that this time public opinion will respond with a boo. But above all, an impression that the government is moving away from the events of the past few days.
Within the same conservative party, there is a growing confusion in front of one Chaotic or absent driving: NS Scottish nationalists have already called for Johnson to resign. It’s probably too early to talk about that: but at the moment it seems hard to fathom how Johnson could possibly be able to return to the top.
