Stay at home was over in England weeks ago.
Not when you have symptoms it wasn't. It is now. Have symptoms do what you want. We did.

Whatever the case the lockdown is effectively over now. Why won't everyone just go to their parents now?

Boris Johnson's popularity is going through the floor according to the polls today is it.

Michael Gove will be PM in 2021. No chance Hancock and Johnson survive this one. Even for Johnson. Lying, affairs, being generally useless is one thing but the huge amount of deaths is quite another.
