Has the media done that? I've not seen any media say that is what he promised.

Have you been watching the daily press conference?

Johnson said 3 weeks to start then review.

If Johnson said "review", then that doesn't mean the same as "relaxation". Even with his cavalier approach to the truth.

In which case you will have seen on a number of occasions reporters ask questions along the lines of "two weeks ago,  you promised. ...blah, blah blah...."

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

That is not the same as the example you said and you know it and are moving the goalposts. Have you actually heard the media say that Johnson promised 3 weeks ago or are you making it up?

Personal insults, nice but its what we've come to expect. I did not call you a liar either but quite frankly I don't care what you think. I asked you a simple question and your lack of an answer speaks volumes, makes a change from your usual disappearing act I suppose.

The policy decision was to review the restrictions in three weeks from the time they were implemented.  But that was an initial review.  It was not a relaxation or even a consideration of relaxation.  Nothing was mentioned of relaxing the restrictions after three weeks.  Only reviewing them.  I don't blame Raab or anyone else not answering any of the stupid incessant questions by the dumbass press pack on exit strategies or restriction relaxation.  It was fully enough that not only was the policy decision taken and communicated that a review would take place after three weeks but it has been repeated at various press conferences since.

Still a sweet idea though.  It is a good way of engaging them without giving them nightmares.

I agree and don't dispute that but its not really what you quoted me was about.

I'm not sure why people talk about essential workers and complaining about people working. The UK Government are very clear that it is fine to work, and fine to travel to work if you cannot work at home.

Good to see. The amount of companies, large and small, doing things for NHS workers is amazing. My mother got free food, a free coffee and a free MOT all on her way home today!

The nearest corner café to me, doing takeaways only, is offering a free sandwich & drink to all NHS workers. They haven't been open  for long, and are rarely busy, but are doing their bit.

From the Screwfix Web site

"We are sorry we haven’t got our usual stock available. Screwfix is currently ringfencing personal protective equipment (PPE) to donate to frontline NHS staff. We have currently withdrawn from sale selected PPE products until further notice to ensure we can distribute this to where it is most in need. Thank you for your patience."

I don't think Blue Light is just for NHS workers.  I think it's for all emergency workers/first responders.

I know but 6 of my family including in-laws work for the NHS so I know a little more about what is happening for them.

There is absolutely no chance of any restrictions being eased or lifted on Monday, review or no review.

No not at all and neither should they be. I heard talk today of June and I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case.
