LONDON – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed on Monday that at least one patient infected with the new Omicron variant of Covid-19 has died in the country.

“Unfortunately, yes, Omicron leads to hospital admissions and unfortunately at least one patient has been confirmed to have died with Omicron,” Johnson told reporters during a visit to a vaccination clinic near Paddington, London. according to Sky News.

“So I think the idea that this is kind of a milder version of the virus is something that we need to put aside and just see the sheer pace at which it is accelerating through the population. So the best we can do , is “everyone gets our boosters.” he said.

British Health Minister Sajid Javid said earlier on Monday said the BBC that currently 10 people were hospitalized after being infected with the Omicron variant. Javid said Omicron was spreading at a “phenomenal rate” and cases doubling every few days.

It comes after studying announced the University of Oxford on Monday found that two cans of either the OxfordAstraZeneca or PfizerBioNTech The Covid-19 vaccine was significantly less effective in fighting off Omicron when compared to previous variants of the coronavirus.

However, the scientists were optimistic that booster vaccinations would improve immunity to the new, highly transmissible variant.

Boris Johnson will not be a real conservative within the type of both One Nation Tory Benjamin Disraeli or Margaret Thatcher – Alastair Stewart

He is determined that the party’s politicians are evil and that its members are grouchy hagiographers. Boris Johnson and Co could cure any disease and would still be demoned.

What is frustrating is that he does not recognize the number of Conservatives who do not recognize their party. That is, many that the Conservatives consider non-conservative.

This is not a new problem, but an acute one these days. Like Theresa May and David Cameron, Boris Johnson repeatedly claimed that he would form a conservative “one-nation” government.

A nation’s conservatism could (to borrow Ted Heath) be called the acceptable face of the Conservative Party. It belongs to the small (c) tradition – conservatives believe that one cannot know everything and that institutions, organizations and professional fields are better left to those who specialize in them than politicians. They accept that there should be a social safety net, but are skeptical of senseless social tinkering and goals – politics must be justifiable with public reason.

Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli was the first to turn philosophy into an electoral creed. In his view, the role of politics was to overcome class stratifications (while accepting that they could never be eradicated). One-nation conservatism emphasizes paternalistic obligations to create prosperity, the cohesion of the country and a common national feeling for all.

Boris Johnson’s messy hair is a sign of general negligence – Simon …

It’s hard to see the last decade as an era of true conservatism. Playing in referendums (even if you discard the economic and political chaos that follows) is not good governance. The condescending tone of the SNP’s democratic mandate does not encourage a collective British feeling. Talking about “Global Britain” while international aid is cut is not a moral policy.

Disraeli was a skilled politician. Cynics who say his philosophy is to advance his own interests and find new relevance to the Tories would be right. Disraeli responded to the industrial revolution and political crises of the 1840s. The upheaval of industrialization opened a gap between the “two nations” of the rich and the poor. It had to find relevance to the Conservatives, as opposed to the free trade campaign and the rise of a liberal urban elite in their political sympathies.

Any true one-nation conservative and true Thatcher supporter interested in long-term stability would be appalled by the militant zeal of the “Brexit or die” mentality. You would be appalled at the government’s hostile environment towards EU citizens; the relentlessness towards the mandate of the SNP; the cut in international aid; the reduction in the universal credit; the casual cruelty towards migrant transitions; the inhumane aspects of Covid-19 deaths; and the human rights protection opt-outs. You would also be appalled by the endless allegations of corruption and feel that this is a favor government.

Johnson isn’t a Thatcherite either. That’s a lazy binary equation. The former prime minister described her style, substance and reasoning as contradicting her party’s “wets”. She wanted to replace the One Nation, the post-war consensus, with Thatcherism, monetarism and the New Right. But that doesn’t mean the opposite of Tory Wet is a Thatcherit today. One-nation conservatism and Thatcherism are decidedly less ideological, nationalistic, and chaotic than current government policies.

Disraeli didn’t actually say the phrase he is remembered for. Instead, it stems from his concern for the two divided industrial worlds in his novel à thèse Sybil (1845). It was Stanley Baldwin in 1924 who said that the Unionist Party, as it was then called, “should represent the unification of the two nations that Disraeli spoke of two generations ago: the unification of our own people into one nation to make our own people ”. “.

In order to reflect openly on Boris Johnson’s conservative and one-nation references, we should ask ourselves two questions: Who is his policy really good for? Is his policy suitable for a unifying consensus that unites the different interests, nations and social classes?

No peacetime prime minister has ever volunteered the British people for domestic and international disruption to the same extent as Johnson did. Cameron and even May were fire starters and torchbearers, but Johnson has an ugly, disgusting nationalism.

Johnson’s “ism” in history will not be conservatism, but narrow-mindedness. We could define his government as a government or a leader who is relentlessly committed to its goals and vehemently denies conflicting views and the dangers involved. Said government or leader excuses failure and rejects contradictions as unpatriotic and ignorant. It’s an angry, lanky populism that some may forgive for its ridiculousness and its silly leader.

As an addendum, we could add that it is less about the scandals than about the cognitive dissonance that goes with them. Gas lighting is another word. George Orwell’s 1984 Ministry of Truth physically changes and erases history; that twists the mind. Wasn’t Boris Johnson standing next to a big red bus promising the NHS £ 350m more a week during the Brexit referendum if we voted for Leave?

“One-nation conservatism,” “Tory democracy,” “paternalism” and “progressive conservatism” are some of the many names given to politics that place high value on the duty of citizens, especially the richest and most powerful, to be help those who are less fortunate.

The philosopher Michael Oakeshott said: “To be conservative means to prefer the known to the unknown, to prefer the tried and tested to the untested, the factual to the mysterious, the actual to the possible, the limited to the unlimited, the near to the distant, the sufficient to the abundance, the pleasant to the perfection, present laughter to utopian bliss ”.

Even the most ardent Conservative has to admit that the Prime Minister is not a Conservative. Certainly his politics and politics do not reflect this. He chases dreams and wages war against facts. This is not a One Nation Conservative.

Boris Johnson says England on observe to raise Covid restrictions

LONDON – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson detailed the final steps to relax UK lockdown rules on Monday, with a final decision to be taken on July 12th.

“If we cannot reopen our society in the next few weeks, if the summer and school holidays help us, we have to ask ourselves, when can we reopen?” Downing Street.

“Freedom Day” – or “Step 4” in the government’s long-term plan to ease restrictions – will take place on July 19, when the government’s “four tests” to ease Covid restrictions are met.

The tests include examining data to confirm that vaccine delivery is continuing successfully and that infection rates do not risk an increase in hospital admissions. These will be assessed on July 12th after a review of the latest data.

Johnson said Monday that there would be no limit to how many people can meet socially or where they can meet. He said the rules that required face masks would be lifted and people would no longer be instructed to work from home.

Any remaining stores that are currently closed, such as nightclubs, are allowed to reopen and the social distancing rules would also end.

Johnson reiterated that Covid will become a virus we learn to live with, as we do with the flu, admitting that reopening would likely result in more deaths.

“It has become increasingly clear that these vaccines are indeed successful in the majority of unvaccinated hospital admissions.”

The lifting of restrictions in England was previously slated for June 21, but was delayed as the highly transferable Delta variant spread across the UK

While infection rates have increased, hospitalizations and deaths have not increased, suggesting that coronavirus vaccines are helping to prevent serious infections.

The UK government has previously signaled reluctance to maintain restrictions longer than strictly necessary. This is despite some concerns among medical professionals and opposition politicians that the restrictions could be lifted too quickly if the variant spreads across the UK, Europe and beyond.

The UK’s Covid vaccination program was one of the fastest in the world, with 86% of the adult population now receiving a first dose of a vaccine and 63.8% two doses. Show government data.
