Welsh First Minister announces two-week ‘circuit-breaker’ lockdown and Northern Ireland’s began last week. Now Boris Johnson must follow suit with no more delays – with schools closed and with a fully funded package for workers and businesses
Wales has joined Northern Ireland in declaring a two-week ‘circuit breaker’ lockdown to end on 9 November. Northern Ireland introduced its own circuit-breaker last week and Scotland is expected to announce new measures in the next few days.
Since Boris Johnson is a fan of three-word slogans, here’s one for him:
Get lockdown done.
And it must include the closure of schools and be backed by a full package of support for workers and businesses.
Johnson’s lockdown delays in the spring cost tens of thousands of lives. No more dithering is acceptable now.
Get it done, Johnson.
