Lockdown without end in the UK? Boris Johnson has shown Brits the finger

Britain is in national lockdown again, but this time with an important difference. Prime Minister Boris Johnson hasn’t given a definite date when restrictions will finally be lifted, which should give everybody cause for concern.

In Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1935 film adaptation of ‘The 39 Steps’, Richard Hannay (played by Robert Donat) tells seemingly ‘respectable citizen’ Professor Jordan (Godfrey Tearle) that the dastardly criminal mastermind he is after has the top joint of the little finger of his left hand missing. “Sure it’s not this one?” says Prof Jordan, raising his right hand.

I thought of that famous scene on Monday when Boris Johnson made his latest ‘address to the nation’. That we were going into a new national lockdown, so soon in the New Year, was absolutely unsurprising. In fact, in a tweet on December 18, I predicted the exact date (January 4) when Johnson would make his announcement.
