It will take a miracle not to go back to full lockdown, unless that is the plan so we can all be told off like naughty school kids. It's a distraction because Baldrick can't sack Blackadder. The minute lockdown starts to ease the caravans and campervans are out. Trump doesn't believe in science and his idiocy seems to be cummings an outright challenge to for Boris to emulate. Now the horse has bolted who needs stable doors?

££££££ all this government truely cares about. Fuck the people who voted you into power. Were they have utterly failed largest death rates in europe. Did not provide front like nurses and doctors enough PPE. And the lack of planni g is simply disgusting. Not quite true is it This is what happens when you expose a corrupt government who breach their own rules. This is what happens when that corrupt government has utter contempt for the electorate & doesn’t really care if the “R” rate increases & the virus kills more venerable people.

This is the outcome of decisions like this one That can't be because we're being led by science? 😂 Well the gov are in charge not the scientists. This government has forgotten it works for the people, they should protect us not kill us. Well being over profit. Don’t think they have ever really followed the scientists advice in my opinion KeepLockdownSaveLives. SackTheTories

This government has forgotten it works for the people, they should protect us not kill us. Well being over profit. Don’t think they have ever really followed the scientists advice in my opinion DelayLockdownSaveLives. SackTheTories Newsnight, 26/05/2020: via bbciplayer BodyBagsForVotes LPrivileged Flatten the curve, everyone said. Curve flattened!

What experts? The impartial and world leading immunologists and epidemiologists who are all saying LOCK DOWN KILLS, or are you pushing the lies and half truths from the 'experts for sale' listed on here No surprise there again inept Borris sucking up to Trumpet by apeing his moves! NeverTrustATory! LPrivileged What about parliament. Next week 50 in chamber, zoom shut down, only the 50 can vote. thisisdictatorship

Over 1,000,000 U.K. citizens sign a petition to remove DominicCummnings ..BorisJohnson ignores them Top U.K. scientists say it too early to reduce Lockdown ....Boristhebutcher ignores them Arrogance, death ,dithering and scandal are the themes of BorisJohnson Premiership 2primates And just because Johnson wants to shift media focus from himself and Cummings by giving free trinkets to the little people

Distraction tactic. SACK Cummings now! BorisJohnson BettGunther Dangerous. So a political decision to divert attention from Cummings affair Which has gone wrong and has just added to anger over boris appalling behaviour in this affair He hoped it would go away but feelings got stronger. One million signed petition

ToryGenocide This is all a distraction from Cummings. If the press allow it. Cumgate DominicCummnings CummingsLaw NOSCHOOLONMONDAY Yeah, but who cares? The government certainly don't and their delusional 'i'll never catch it' followers need their haircuts and watered down wetherspoons booze! Cause he’s bereft of ideas and we’re gonna crash and burn in an Alexander and Dominic love/hate maelstrom!!

itzStoo Its Bloody Obvious :/ :( However Cummings & BorisJohnson Want: HerdImmunity , To Fully Open Uk & Help Rich / 0.1% To Earn More Profits, HardBrexit , & Savings From: UkPeople's Deaths/Future Costs, Show: NHS Can't Cope & Sell To RealDonaldTrump / American Insurers :( So irresponsible of this govt.

Any old jibber jabber that stops Cummings coming into it right? Regardless of the cost... Deflection Where is the opposition party leader? kierstarmer Not led by the science . AndiEwington Culling the herd still York4EU Its what you do if you don't have a clue! Quite Frankly they never published the names of the Experts did they?

Shitting Nora. SteveNickSmith Looking forward to this having no consequences at all for the people making the decisions RichardBaxell I wonder why Would have taken a couple more weeks to check if rate goes down but NO after all the effort and government money spent they decide to go back to work night before safety measures in place. Government lost the plot

What a surprise! BarnardCastleEyeTest BorisJohnsonMustGo DowningStreetBriefing SackDominicCummings StayHomeSaveLives Couple more weeks to check if rate goes down and after all the effort but no government after spending lots lost the plot Just goes to show how much these people in power think of you and me. We are the expendables.

SamEspensen I guess they were just trying to take our minds off Cummings! JJPJ Making it up as you go along is a good response to a global pandemic - not! Gungho Boris still it’s not your life georgina09641 So that’s more culpable homicide laid on No 10’s doorstep. At what point does this become manslaughter?

NicholasPegg So, Monday it'll be magically possible to meet people outside. Are there teams of people with nets leaping out of vans, working to capture as much virus as possible over the weekend? lockdown Forget what was said yesterday, move on would seem to be todays imperative. 🤔 peston bbclaurak adamboultonSKY piersmorgan campbellclaret

Political expedience always comes before public safety Different in approach in Wales dudgeon_neil Thank you independent for a decent tweet. Not hateful nor circus like. ToryGenocide Just another thing to distract us all from the Cummings fiasco. hare_brain I wonder what could possibly have prompted them to do this? 🤔

A reminder of how baffling & premature dropping of “Stay Home” slogan on 10 May was seen at the time. A No. 10 initiative with scientists bypassed, rejected by other leaders. When did Johnson realise he’d one day have to defend Cummings behind the slogan? What the hell is going on with this government? If they get away with this gamble on human lives then they will get away with anything.

Oh well, that’s Wacky BoJo for you. Hope he doesn’t kill too many people this time. ChalfontStGiles Certainly playing high risk games with our lives. HenryCPorter ah so we're being 'led by the idiots' vs the science now Profits over people Chuck another dead cat on the socially distancing barbie and hope the Cummings debacle goes away..

But all five tests met according to PM yesterday. What is going on? Why on earth aren't UKLabour and Keir_Starmer shouting this from the rooftops? The science is clear: it isn't safe, and more people will die. Valance and Witty should have walked the other night and would have had the British scientific community backing them

This is making me horrendously anxious. So it was to cover Cummings dominating headlines? I wonder why Johnson gave up 'following the science' this week, of all weeks. I wonder what he's trying to deflect attention away from... DoPradista Led by the science or the govt leading the science? Their response to this virus gets more frightening by the day. We’re not being led by science, we’re being led by a bloody donkey. Risk level is still 4 but BorisJohnson still sticking his fingers up at the nation. This is why Borisjohnsonmustgo

Does Dom have another party to go to and too many people watching him now? Right, which one will it be? I'll just pop this here... And do they really believe that people won't start having BBQs and meetings in gardens at the weekend. It's ridiculous. PSmythe800 Crap people are still dying morons Presumably because cummings wants to travel again 😵😵😵

I’m convinced that govt pursuing an agenda of Herd Immunity. They’ve decided that the virus can be controlled enough not to overwhelm the nhs but allow it to perculate though the population. Probably take 2-3 years to reach 60% of the population . Keeping R below 1 essential !!!!! 🤬🤬🤬 All to distract from cummings, whose poor advice led us to this point where we have the highest Covid levels per capita in the world. Reckless idiots!

Well done Bojo for deflecting the story. That's not what people were asking. They were asking you to fire Cummings. SackBorisAndDom Same in Belgium 🤦🏻‍♂️ piersmorgan Seriously this is astonishing. how many more lifes? notfitforpurpose charlatan This is homicide. marsdinon The Covid-19 threat level is High, the confirmed cases rate is rising, and the Test, Trace, Isolate system is not operational, but hey, the sun is shining, let's party! We are at the mercy of a criminally irresponsible government.

Hands up anyone who didn’t see this coming. Anyone? Bueller? Anyone? BorisJohnsonMustGo Distracting from the Cummings affair. Get the kids back to school and people back to work even if thousands more die. To take away the attention from Cumgate the gov and their PM are criminal... I don't listen to what the gov say any more. It's just to distract from Cummings gate.

Meanwhile, back in 1 USA... Math Lesson For COVIDIOTS 101: The MAGADeathCult Edition As a result of the Cummings effect and recent anticipation of the lockdown from number 10, watch R value increase over next week and beyond. How high will the government let it go before second lockdown. The scientists need to distance themselves from this now.

I thought he said schools would only open at L3. More confusion!!!! CMO_England uksciencechief ProfKarolSikora piersmorgan !!the R rate being so close to 1 are we in a danger period or not!!!? carmen_mayes Scotland follows England in allowing middle class activities Golf Tennis Bowls Fishing ...... No reference to Dogging yet Essex in uproar 😜 🥃

it got cummings off the front pages will kill many people but it got cummings off front pages I believe the experts. Needed something to distract people from the Cummings mess. letsnotmoveon Come on guys, let’s have some positivity. Trust in Boris and he’ll defeat the virus🦠. He’s not called the PRIME Minister for nothing. BORISISBACK

Led by the science. Of their backers He did it to try and make a distraction away from cummings. Politics before health and people. It's almost like they want to get something out of the papers, I just can't figure out what it is. He's got away with a high death toll so far, not much of a gamble for him. He knows a lot of his supporters unless personally affected don't give a shit how many others die esp those from bame backgrounds and no deal with the eu matters more to them than how many die from covid.

FFS 🤬 So experts say that the threat level of Covid_19 is still high yet that dumbass BorisJohnson wants to open schools. That's improved my confidence in the government, no end. Led by the science my arse. So the experts say that the virus risk level is high but Boris wants to allow groups to get together? BorisMustGo BorisJohnsonMustGo
