Facing pressure from his ministers, the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, on Monday, 20 December, abandoned new health restrictions. Journalist Benjamin Delombre is live from London (United Kingdom) to take stock of the situation.
While there were 91,000 positive cases of COVID-19 in the United Kingdom on Monday, 20 December, the government stopped implementing new health measures. “This is an extremely impressive figure and as British scientists urged the government to take strong action, Boris Johnson has decided not to make a decision. Yet he called a meeting of his cabinet in the afternoon.”, says journalist Benjamin Delombre, hailing from London (United Kingdom).
Several options were on the table, including tighter controls. “The problem, according to the British media, is that a dozen of their own ministers were in front of them protesting the new restrictions before Christmas. After two hours of discussion, Boris Johnson therefore succumbed to their wishes. The British prime minister, says There is a serious political crisis in his country and he could not afford to isolate his government., concludes the journalist.
