UK: 93,045 new covid cases yesterday.
Japan has nearly twice the UK's population, and a higher population density.
Massive covid outbreaks aren't a given - they're a policy choice.

More people died of covid in the last 6 hours in the UK than have died since the beginning of the pandemic in New Zealand.
You can come up with a thousand excuses, from population to population density, and it will still show the UK in an abominably poor light.

A Downing Street spokesperson was boasting again yesterday about our speedy vaccine rollout, claiming that it would have been a disaster under Labour because they would have kept us tied to the European Medicines Agency.
Meanwhile in the real world, away from the propaganda... https://t.co/H8ktUtdWVY

Exhibit A for Chapter 1 of the covid public inquiry. I don't have the words to express how disgustingly delinquent this attitude is. https://t.co/yw0azlgRHl

Very strong US statement: “In threatening to invoke Article 16 of the NI Protocol, the UK threatens to not only destabilize trade relations, but also that hard earned peace. We call on the UK to abandon this dangerous path, and to commit to implementing the NI Protocol in full.”

"Dutch health authorities said that 61 people who arrived in Amsterdam on two flights from South Africa on Friday tested positive for Covid-19, Reuters reports."
How do they know? Because they tested everyone on both planes.
Flights from SA to Heathrow disembarked as normal. 🤦♂️

Will Jacob Rees-Mogg tell the Queen she was foolish to sit alone at her husband's funeral because she should have intuited the rules were too harsh to be followed?

UK: 48,854 new covid cases yesterday.
Japan: 120 new covid cases yesterday.
Japan's population is nearly twice that of the UK.
But they're not precious about wearing masks. And they've controlled their borders since the beginning, with tests on arrival and quarantine periods.

5 things Labour need to do
1. Always refer to Brexit as "Tory Brexit" (every single Labour MP and peer, every time it comes up).
2. Be much more vocally critical of Tory Brexit. Not Brexit. Tory Brexit.
3. Clearer improvements to the deal.
4. Big bold electoral pacts.

What Labour should say to the Tories about Brexit:
"You told us you had an oven-ready deal. We chose to respect the referendum result by letting you try to implement it. Subsequent events have shown that it was a rotting mess. It is time to reverse the damage you've inflicted."

You might as well back a coach up to Number 10, and take the entire Cabinet away. If they weren't embroiled in secret lawbreaking parties, they were letting the Afghan people down, or plotting to strip us all of our human rights, or funnelling billions in PPE contracts to mates.

Variant A: 5% hospitalisations.
Variant B: 3% hospitalisations.
10,000 cases of Variant A = 500 hospitalisations.
30,000 cases of Variant B = 900 hospitalisations.
Why don't people get this?
Omicron is much MUCH more infectious than Delta, so raw number of cases is massive!

The Tory MP shill on the #bbcqt panel and Michael Portillo both claim that the UK's vaccine rollout has been one of the best in the world.
No. It was the earliest in the world. No argument there. But many other advanced economies have now vaccinated a far higher % than we have. https://t.co/iALQ7k4Ag7

It's immensely convenient that we're experiencing severe covid test shortages at a time of record peak cases, and when an undeniable surge would undermine Boris Johnson's nonchalant attitude towards New Year festivities.

Nadine Dorries logic...
1. Someone's criticising me.

3. I'm a woman.
4. Therefore it's misogyny.
