People should have not been selfish and done what there want and then we wouldn't be in this mess in the first place

Boris the baboon! He has no clue whatsoever

Jon Walling

This is creating a ticking time bomb for mental health across the UK.

Changes nothing here made an educated guess long ago keep the head down and be careful, and think of others, I also know it's not Politicians raising the concerns, It's people who have the latest info on the virus worldwide and where it is going

Follow the rules and we will be okay if we don't follow them then this virus will be around for a very long time

Why can’t people just do as they told. So what is pubs and restaurants have to shut at 10pm otherwise we are never going to get back to any kind of normality. Stupid people thinking it doesn’t affect them. It is affecting all of us. Put a mask on to leave your house and don’t take it off until you go back k home. That’s what I e been doing it’s not comfortable as my glasses steam up. But it keeps me safe and that’s what’s all about

Sharon Fenna

He can say whatever, Cummings tells him to say. I'm virus free and hope to remain by using common sense

Will not make any difference drinkers will just go out early and drink more in the shorter time they are out. Its public transport and town centres where the issue is, everyone needs to wear a mask all the time when out, so many people are just not bothered, no sociol distancing at all. 10pm shut down is pointless.

Annette Dunkerley

Worse than that, they may go to people's houses and carry on drinking at 10 pm.

Beverley Collister

Lockdowns do not work as we have seen in Bolton where pubs and restaurants have been closed for over two weeks.

Rob Inman

Can we still eat out for half price Monday Tuesday Wednesday ????

Just another big kick at the hospitality industry. Thanks Boris.. as if it’s not been hard enough. We have already been employing more staff to allow full table service, now we can only be open a few hours. I turn more redundancy and more mental health issues. If we are to lock down just lock down everything. Give me strength

Ade Holt

None of this makes sense anymore...
