Britain’s hopeful of a family Christmas are even more confused as Downing Street insisted families should be able to gather together for the celebrations.
A No10 spokesman said: “The PM has been clear previously that he is hopeful that in many ways we could be able to get some aspects of our lives back to normal by Christmas. As I say, we’ve been clear about the ambition to ensure that people may celebrate Christmas as a family this year. I think few people expect it to be exactly as it would normally because we will be living with this virus for some time.”
He added: “The chief medical officer and the chief scientific adviser have been very clear on that. But, your point really was about the ability of families to spend Christmas together – that is something we all hope to be in a position to do.”
The mixed and confusing messages came as politicians are desperately trying to get a grip on a surge in coronavirus cases across the UK. There are tough restrictions on people meeting indoors across much of the UK, with Wales entering a 17-day lockdown at 6.00 pm BST tonight, October 23.
