COVID-19: Johnson expected to delay 'Freedom Day', as poll shows more than half of people back him
With cases of the more transmissible delta variant increasing, the coronavirus restrictions are likely to remain for a bit longer.
Boris Johnson is expected to agree to the delay of lockdown easing in England and, according to a new poll, just over half of the UK public is backing the move.
Assuming the poll is reasonably accurate, it's the most depressing aspect of the current situation. Why we are so easily induced to go along with the narrative I don't know. Independent we certainly are not.
It's almost as depressing as the thought of David Attenborough bleating climate doom to the G7 stoogefest.
