Boris Johnson wants to stick to his Plan B to tackle coronavirus in England

Hospitals are declaring critical incidents over staff shortages as Omicron cases soar, yet complacent Boris Johnson seems determined to do nothing but stick to a mild Plan B of masks and minor restrictions in England.

As UN global health ambassador and Labour former Prime Minister Gordon Brown makes clear in today’s Daily Mirror, the pandemic is far from over and Britain, along with other countries, has a vested and moral interest in sharing vaccines and testing technology to stop the global death toll hitting 10 million.

Spit-spot on

Mary Poppins and Mrs Doubtfire likely earned considerably less than the lucky nanny who will be paid up to £85,000 a year by a well-heeled London family.

Looking after children is a valuable but often underpaid job so we hope the woman or man worthy of their hire enjoys their decent salary.

It’s practically perfect in every way.
