Boris Johnson Sparks Row After Announcing Britons Have Had Enough Days Off

Boris Johnson has sparked a row by stating that Britons have had enough days off, as he rejected proposals for a bank holiday when lockdown is lifted.

The Prime Minister was accused of being irresponsible after he insisted the most important thing was to get people back into the office when the pandemic wanes.

The comment came as Boris Johnson addressed the online Conservative spring forum, delivering an upbeat message about his hope for getting back to normal, and there have been indications that the huge move to home working during COVID could permanently destroy city centres, and hold back young people at the start of their careers and hinder team working.

The premier said he can see nothing in coronavirus data to change his lockdown easing roadmap, and quipped that he’s looking forward to a pint and a haircut, and he said that in just a few days, he’s finally going to be able to go to the barbers, but that more importantly, he’s going to be able to down the street and cautiously, but irreversibly, he’s going to be able to drink a pint of beer in the pub.

And that as things stood, he could see absolutely nothing in the data to dissuade him from proceeding along with their roadmap to freedom, unlocking our economy and getting back to the life we love. However, he continued that a third wave was being witnessed in Europe and said that bitter experience has shown him that this could hit the United Kingdom three weeks later.

Asked whether the UK could have a bank holiday called ‘National Hangover Day’ once the pandemic wanes, he said Chancellor Rishi Sunak was pretty keen for people to get back into the office.

And that the general view was that people have had quite a few days off, and it wouldn’t be a bad thing for people to see their way round to making a fleeting stab at getting back into the office.

Shadow employment minister Andy McDonald told a newspaper outlet that Boris Johnson’s comments were cavalier, and that he was attempting to satisfy the libertarian wing of his party on the one hand by talking about getting back to the office, then suggesting he’s being cautious, and that he can’t just toss out comments like this because you can’t ride two horses at once, and that wasn’t leadership, it was just cavalier.

Boris Johnson is so far detached from what’s happening to us real people, living real lives, for example not bankrolled by the gravy train, that we can’t take a word he says seriously.

And as for a haircut, he could at least run a brush through his mop once in a while because if he has no pride in himself, how can he have any pride in what he does.

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...
