    Yes, we know he got pointed out partying with booze...way back in 2020. He has apologized and now he is taking appropriate, sane action. So good for him. No masks for children or anyone. It will start on Thursday.

    The mandatory face mask rule will be lifted beginning on Thursday in England, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Wednesday.

    Johnson said that, along with the face mask mandate, COVID-19 passports will no longer be required for large events and gatherings, such as at nightclubs and other venues, the BBC reported. Masks in schools are no longer required and people may return to offices for work.

    "We will trust the judgment of the British people and no longer criminalize anyone who chooses not to wear one," he said.

    Boris Johnson is a nasty Prince of Darkness politician.
    The UK has the 31st worst death rate from the virus in the world.
    Nothing to be impressed by.

    Doesn't do jack ****. The virus spreads. Protect yourself and wear a bubble suit if you are scared, otherwise it's time to get back to normal so we can stop damaging society and the economy.

    It's simply not worth it.

    Here;

    Wear this if you are scared.

    Otherwise go away with your masks and your mandates.

    Having minimisation of the death rate as your only, singular goal is a sure path to tyranny.

    If that happens.......we will have to watch the numbers in the UK..............and see what they show........

    He is in political trouble...........and not sure this is a constructive move. Masks are critical in a pandemic ............so it goes against Public health criteria.

    So use your own judgment and wear one? He's not saying you can't wear one. But they don't do much in this pandemic as the numbers have shown. Stay at home and isolate from everyone works. But we can't do that indefinitely. So that's not an option.

    The vaccines don't stop the spread. They won't end the pandemic in their current form.

    There are three things that are going to end this;

    - the virus mutates into something manageable and negligible.
    - heard immunity.
    - a new vaccine that is close to 100 percent and prevents the individual from catching it and spreading it.

    We will see how many choose to wear one....and how it will affect the numbers.

    All anyone has to do is look at the Israel study. The most vaccinated, boostered, masked country in the world, has now discovered that the vaxed people are getting covid more then the unvaccinated. So now the top scientist says....sigh....it's better to develop your own natural immunity to it. Sweden who never had mandates have less cases then other countries.

    This is good for Wimbledon...Novajak will be able to play, unlike in insane France and Australia.:lol:

    :worry: ~ There were times when those with leprosy were shunned and treated as outcasts . Perhaps the "boosted " will now be the same. History repeating itself ... `:blankstare: :lonely:

    Except flattening the curve was never about preventing deaths. It was about keeping the hospitals within their capacity by spreading the cases and deaths out over a longer period of time. Johnson was probably more well-grounded with his initial plan to throw old people in prisons, lock the doors, and let everybody else run through the streets naked licking door knobs to get it over already. Turns out, he wasn't dark enough to hold the course.

    Your thread title is wrong in two respects.

    1. - It's not a copy paste of the article title, which is as follows:
    England Lifts Face Mask Mandate, Lets People Return to Offices as Omicron Cases Near Peak

    2. - Your own title conflates "England" and the "UK".

    England is not the UK. It is one country in the UK.

    Scotland, Wales and N.Ireland are separate countries, and make their own Covid rules.

    Thanks for pointing that out. Was in a hurry, but meant England is now free of tyranny. Isn't that wonderful? Now if America could only follow their lead. The pilgrims came to America to flee from the tyranny of religion in England. Now we have D.C., CEOs, etc imposing forced vaccines on people or they cannot function in society.

    :applause:~ Best post in the thread . Fortunately it does indeed appear that most Americans are turning to independent news sources and becoming aware of the draconian folly this administration has engaged . It has always been about Civil Rights - not "science" .

    Bets some super strain pops out of the U.K., justifying vaccine mandates around the globe?

    The cynic in me thinks this is some sort of social experiment, and the optimist hopes for balance, freedom and peace for the people of the country bold enough to make this move. Best of luck, good citizens of the UK!

    Bozo is making a calculated guess just when he needs to pull a rabbit out of the hat.
    As he has a long history of unfounded impulsive behaviour , I can only hope he is right.
    and in saying effectively "do what you want" he is absolving himself from most of the responsibility for what may happen. and it looks as if someone else will be trying to correct his miscalculation as it looks as if he may not be around long enough to see the results of his "gift to England".
    If anything unsuspected Covid-wise comes over his horizon, he will be stripping his gold wallpaper off the walls and retreating out the back door.

    Hardly any change to what we have had for months. the only time I have been required to wear a mask for the last few months was in stores, so about 30 minutes per week at most

    Assuming if you take the figures a gospel. When you have friends who's relative died of a long illness they had, because they had COVID like symptoms, the death certificate recorded COVID as the cause.

    If you wish to believe the figures, your choice, but I'm not naive.
