They've been optimistic for 11 months, and made poor decisions in my personal view for the majority of that time.
I actually think the government is being a bit more cautious than they have done in the past.

We came out of the November lockdown too early and/or did not have enough restrictions in place at the back end of the year. From my cynical perspective, this was purely political because the government wanted to avoid the Boris cancels Christmas headlines. The consequences are we got hit by a massive spike of deaths in January. So that is why I think they are taking things a bit slower than I envisaged they would.

I'll repeat the phrase used by Chris Whitty when asked sometime last year about the effectiveness of social distancing, masks etc...
Anything helps.
Fair enough. IMO, I think they should still restrict some socials like where people are more likely to touch each other and exchange fluids - so nightclubs especially (face masks and 2 metre distance whilst going clubbing would hopefully put everyone off anyway), pubs / restaurants may be okay. Open non-essential stores. Just nothing with large gatherings where many strangers are mixing.

Right, the announcement has come to an end. The news articles should be pouring in shortly to summarise for anyone who didn't watch it.

Do you think there will be another wave then due to the social restrictions being lifted by June?

Science is politicized, it's up to them how many waves they want. What matters to them is fulfilling their agenda.

If they do work, why did he say in March that they didn't?

Oh. I was referring to the UK government, not China. We don't have that over here.

Has BoJo actually confirmed we'll be having these vaccine passports? Or is it just speculation?

No, UK is the homeland of the Anglo Saxons. We are the aborigines here, perhaps dont trash our city centres in the middle of a supposed health crisis.
Look, I appreciate that lockdown is hitting you hard because you can't play with your school pals, but if you are going to troll, can you at least put some effort into it?

Otherwise, may I suggest you go back to playing with your Duplo.

Whittless and Unbalanced looked a bit miserable last night. I'm convinced they would keep us in lockdown forever if it was up to them.

If BoJo wants to get re-elected he's gonna have to lift all the restrictions.

To quote Chris Whitty last year "Wearing a mask if you don't have an infection reduces the risk almost not at all. So we do not advise that."
