Boris Johnson dramatically cancelled Christmas for millions of people today as he hit the panic button on a rampant new mutant strain of coronavirus.
At an emergency press conference, the PM announced that a third of England, including London and swathes of the home counties, will be shifted up to a brutal new ‘Tier 4’ from midnight.
The draconian bracket means non-essential shops being forced to shut, and travel restrictions including a ‘stay at home’ order for Christmas Day itself – even though Mr Johnson insisted just days ago that it would be ‘inhuman’ to axe five-day festive ‘bubbles’.
The rest of England will not escape unscathed, with up to three households now only allowed to mix on Christmas Day rather than between December 23 and 27.
The extraordinary U-turn caused fury among families that have already made plans, booked travel and bought food for reunions.
