Ministers defend the offer to staff in England, saying finances are under unprecedented strain.

Joe Biden signed an executive order today that banned the term “China virus.” It’s not clear how this will help with the pandemic. The coronavirus is widely believed today to have been created in a lab in Wuhan China. This was one of his 37 executive orders in six days. A dictator signs 37 Executive…

So China virus bad, English variant or Brazilian strain good. Yep perfect sense, Biden you’re a hypocrite.

Boris Johnson, six Tory MPs and two aides have been told to self-isolate after a breakfast meeting in No 10.

So having had COVID, Boris is immune and therefore unable to spread the disease but has gone into isolation. So even if you get a vaccine you’ll need to isolate?

The group Stand Up Bristol gathered with signs in the city this morning, with at least 14 maskless protestors being arrested by police as tensions bubbled over. 16 were arrested in Liverpool.
