Every Adult In The United Kingdom Will Be Required To Play Their Part

Every adult will be encouraged to test themselves for coronavirus at least twice a week under new plans to help ease Britain out of lockdown.

Testing chiefs are driving the message in the hope of identifying people without symptoms.

They think that getting people to regularly swab is essential in driving down the spread of the virus and an advertising campaign will encourage Britons to play their part.

The new drive, revealed by the Times, will be supplemented by national sewage monitoring, and it’s expected that areas with growing cases will then be immediately identified and stopped by surge testing, possibly reducing the demand for future lockdowns.

Britain’s successful vaccine drive has led to calls for the lockdown to be eased more quickly, despite fresh regulations to prolong emergency government powers to extend restrictions by up to six months.

The bill is expected to sail through parliament despite threats of a Tory revolt.

The Tory MPs warned that Britain risks squandering the advantages of our vaccination programme by moving too slowly to lift the lockdown.

Amid signs of a mass revolt, a string of MPs said they were ready to vote against the Government this week when it attempts to extend COVID laws to the end of September.

The NHS yesterday revealed a third consecutive record day of vaccinations with 844,285 on Saturday.

The Institute of Economics Affairs yesterday said the success of the programme meant there was now a clear case for bringing forward Boris Johnson’s road map dates by four weeks.

This view was supported by Tory backbenchers, including former minister Steve Baker.

Mr Baker, the head of the COVID Recovery Group, said he will vote against plans to extend government powers, warning that the detention powers in the Coronavirus Act were excessive, unreasonable, and completely unnecessary and that renewing them would not be reconcilable with the Prime Minister’s guarantee that they’re on a one-way road to freedom by June 21.

Windsor MP Adam Afriyie said that he worries that some minds in government were centring on arbitrary dates rather than looking at the reality of the data on hospitalisations and deaths, which was what they were told in January would determine the unlocking.

Christopher Snowdon, of the Institute of Economic Affairs, said that even if the vaccination programme slowed down next month, they were in a far better place than anybody anticipated in January and that there was a strong case for bringing the roadmap forward by four weeks.

So, it seems it’s back to cases we go, and it’s a never-ending cycle – deaths, deaths, deaths, and then when those numbers fall, it’s cases, cases, cases, and then when those fall, those that haven’t learned from the past year, never will, but don’t forget, vaccines are the way out – right?

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
