    I don't know why BBC One bothered to show the Downing Street press briefing this evening - 6.35 pm, they cut away from it and told us that it would be on the News Channel. I know that the TV schedules are chaos with Euro 2021 [sic] and keeping the soaps intact, but I think that it should have been at 5.00 pm as usual when no football was on BBC One. I know I have Sky but, come on...

    Its not gonna make things more confusing.
    Pussyfooting about with euphemisms is an utterly stupid idea. Now, to make geographical sense of any news report, it means we will have to look up a list to find which variant equates to which Greek letter.
    Or, as Sky now report it: "the Delta variant, otherwise known as the Indian variant", which just makes news statements more long-winded and defeats the purpose of the Greek letters anyway.

Just been to Morrisons and there was a sign at the door which was impossible to miss "NO MASK ,NO ENTRY" as i walked round i saw at least a dozen people without masks (including staff members) or wearing them on the chin....WHATS THAT ALL ABOUT THEN??...as i was leaving i asked the door security what the company policy was on masks and he said "dunno mate, not my problem"....I'm still shaking my head
    These shops should have had night club bouncers who are not afraid to challenge unmaskers,they know how to get away with it when nobody challenges them.There was a young couple going into tesco no mask,I will say loud enough look at them no masks when the sign says no entry.They were handed 2 masks by security.

    Or hopefully zero figures. I see the deaths coming down as optimism but as you say, cases are rising.

    It was reported that there were no UK deaths on Tuesday, but I am immediately assuming that had Monday not been a Bank Holiday, there would have been some deaths reported of a single figure at least.

    It does feel as if the light at the end of the tunnel is closer than we think, but of course optical illusions can happen that we are closer to the end when the reality is that we are not. It has happened a few times, especially last year.

    I hope that we are going to have at least one Downing Street press briefing this week - I know that Boris has just said "I do" last weekend but a honeymoon would be inappropriate at this moment of time for a number of reasons.
