I’m getting my booster on Sunday which is about 2 months early (from the 6) but fine by me, had a massive break out at work but as I’ve been home due to some personal issues it’s not affected me however I’m not bothering with the Christmas meal now.

With the personal situation I’d rather go home for Xmas.

It's not normally a news source I rate, but I have to say, hats off to ITV for their work here. If Tom Bradby's frankly livid introduction had been on the BBC, there'd be emergency legislation being tabled for immediate licence fee removal as we speak.

PMQs in 26 minutes. You just know if Magic Grandpa was still about, the six questions would be about lamp posts in rural Rutland.

Someone's not reading the Tory playbook:

One Conservative backbencher said it would be a “a big dead cat” – referring to the strategy of diverting attention away from a negative story – and “bring the whole Covid policy into disrepute”. They suggested Chris Whitty, the chief medical officer, should “refuse to share a platform for this announcement”.

I suppose I'd better ring my mum and tell her Christmas is cancelled then.

Months ago, when Johnson announced that the Slithey Gove was being put in charge of saving Christmas, we all joked about Christmas being off again this year. How did we know?

I think Christmas has gone again. My reasoning as follows:

1. Omicron is rampant. Yes, it might only result in 1% of people going to hospital, but if you're getting 70 or 80k cases a day (which, by say the 18th, is perfectly feasible the rate this thing is going) that's still a high number of people who will need emergency treatment.

2. There will be those who will now definitely not follow the guidance after the events of the last 48 hours.

3. New mandates come into force next week. Why not before the weekend? There'll be a full programme of sport. Considering the time of year, the pubs and clubs will be rammed.

Suffice to say, we are fucked.

Isn't this because it has to be put to a vote in the Commons for it to become law (amongst other reasons)?

I think Christmas is probably over too.
