The same explanation they use every day for everything, lol. I should know...I used to use them most days (pre Covid). Same old shït, well that and line/points failure. They never give you the real reasons.
What do you think the real reasons are?

Maybe just maybe we could be seeing a chink of light at the end of a very dark tunnel, Infection rates seem to be coming down in many parts of the UK. Still means unfortunately hospital admission and sadly deaths will be high but hopefully will follow the infection rates and start to decline.

Parents having been offered full time places for their kids now being told only to bring them when needed. Apparently came as a big surprise that the key worker list covers nearly every profession going.

And so the November lockdown, which had little affect, cost the UK economy -2.8% of GDP.

To put this into context, the 2008 financial crash at its height only affected the UK by -2.2%.

I dread to think what the January lockdown is going to cost us, especially when you add it to the other two. We can't keep on doing this. Enacting a lockdown is like enacting a financial crash. And people wonder why Boris is reticent to enact them...I mean durrr.

Meanwhile China's economy is back to booming. Figures.
