Wedding celebrations will be limited to just 15 guests, half of the number previously permitted, though funerals will be allowed to go ahead with up to 30 mourners. Continue reading...

New Covid-19 restrictions mean UK unemployment will get much worse
Bank of England forecasts for 7.5% unemployment this winter may have to be revised up considerablyIt is March 2021. In the UK, the clocks are about to go forward and the government is about to ease restrictions imposed six months earlier in response to a rise in Covid-19 cases. A long, hard winter is over.But at what cost? That was the question exercising politicians, business leaders and economists after the prime minister announced curbs on opening hours for pubs and restaurants, and back-tracked on the government’s previous advice that people should stop working from home. Economists at Bank of America think Britain is on course to contract in both the final three months of this year and the first three months of next. Continue reading...

Boris Johnson Scoffed At The Idea Of Enforcing Covid Rules. Now The Army Could Be Used
The military can help the police as they target Covid-19 rule breakers, the PM has announced – six months to the day since he appeared flabbergasted at the suggestion officers could be involved at all. During a daily press briefing on March 22 – just a day before the UK went into full national lockdown – the PM was asked by a reporter if the government would consider using the police to enforce social distancing rules. “Bring in the police?” he responded, apparently shocked at the suggestion that officers could be involved in maintaining a host of regulations enforced by the government. Just four days later it was confirmed that police would in fact be given new powers to enforce rules, with fines issued to those contravening the rules on leaving home “without reasonable excuse”.Now, exactly half a year on from the UK’s first lockdown and facing the reality of a second wave of Covid-19, Boris Johnson told MPs in the Commons that not only will fines be increased for those violating the “rule of six”, but armed forces personnel could be brought in to help police fulfil their duties amid the pandemic. Speaking on Tuesday afternoon, Johnson said there would now be “greater police presence” on the streets with “the option to draw on military support where required”.Later on Tuesday Downing Street confirmed that the armed forces would be able to help fulfil certain police duties such as office roles and guarding protected sights to free up officers, but would not be granted “additional powers”.The PM’s official spokesperson said: “To further free up the police to have a greater presence on our streets they will have the option to draw on military support, where required, using tried and tested mechanisms.“This would involve the military back-filling certain duties, such as office roles and guarding protected sites, so police officers can be out enforcing the virus response.“This is not about providing any additional powers to the military, or them replacing the police in enforcement roles, and they will not be handing out fines. It is about freeing up more police officers.”It’s far from the first time Johnson’s government has shifted stance during the pandemic. Just hours before announcing that the army could fulfil some policing roles, Michael Gove admitted that the government’s push for workers to return to offices had been reversed. The government’s official position, confirmed by the PM during his speech, is now that employees who can work from home should do so wherever possible. The U-turn follows a dozen other reversals, which include the wearing of masks, the abandonment of algorithm-produced exam results, and bans on evictions. Related...

'We raised £2m in days': the donations helping protesters in Belarus
Funds that came in after the election being used to pay fines and compensate the injuredWhen riot police started beating up protesters in Belarus after contested elections in August, thousands of locals responded by doing the only thing they felt might help make a difference in the face of police violence and impunity: making donations.Alexey Leonchik, a 38-year-old Belarusian based between London and Warsaw, had set up a project three years ago called BY_help, which was meant to help pay the fines of people arrested in Belarus. Back then, it raised a few thousand pounds. But as the horrific footage began to come out of the country in the aftermath of election night, the money started coming in to his Facebook fundraiser like never before. Continue reading...
