George Eustice Refuses To Rule Out Third National Lockdown In January
The environment secretary has refused to rule out the possibility of a third national lockdown in January, saying the current state of the coronavirus pandemic is a “rapidly developing situation”.George Eustice said it could be avoided “if we maintain the tiered approach for as long as necessary” and that “we can see a way out of this early next summer”.Pressed on whether he could rule out another lockdown in the New Year, the Cabinet minster said: “You can’t rule anything out.”Could we see a third nation wide lockdown in England at some point? Environment Secretary George Eustice refuses to rule one out, but says "we can see a way out of this early next summer." JJ#KayBurleypic.twitter.com/JdhxRkyvRH— Kay Burley (@KayBurley) November 30, 2020Eustice also laid bare the scale of the discontent on Tory benches ahead of Tuesday’s Commons vote on the new Covid restrictions for England.He said up to 100 people have “got concerns”, telling Sky News: “The chief whip, obviously, will be talking to those MPs who have got concerns. I’ve seen suggestions that there could be up to 100 or so people that have got concerns.“I think there is great frustration with the emergency measures that we have had to take to deal with this pandemic. We haven’t taken them lightly. We have had to take these to get the virus under control.“What we need to show to those MPs and to the country at large is that we have got a clear route towards fixing this problem and turning the corner.”The environment secretary also clarified new rules around eating and drinking out in tier 2 areas, post-lockdown.Asked if people living in Tier 2 areas would have to leave a pub or restaurant as soon as they finish eating, or could stay to finish their drink, he said: “I think you can finish your drink provided you are at a table and you have had a drink with a meal then, of course, you can finish your drink as well.“What you probably couldn’t do is have a small meal and then sit at the table all night ordering drink.”Covid-19 infections in England fell by 30% during the country’s second lockdown, according to the latest findings of a major coronavirus study.Between November 13 and 24, more than 105,000 volunteers were tested for the virus as part of an ongoing study by Imperial College London and Ipsos MORI to work out infection levels in the general population. Related...

Christmas Covid ‘bubbling': how can we make the best of it and stay safe? | Stephen Reicher
If people are to behave responsibly, the government should offer support, rather than just instructionsStephen Reicher is a member of the behavioural science advisory committee to SageSee all our coronavirus coverageOne thing is certain. If more people mix together in enclosed, crowded and stuffy spaces, more people will become infected with Covid-19, more will get ill, and some will even die. Five days of mixing at Christmas will inevitably lead to more deaths in the New Year.What is less certain is how to limit such mixing. Is it best to insist that people cannot meet up in their houses, with the risk that many will simply ignore such regulations, meet up regardless and in doing so destroy any vestiges of trust between the government and the public? Or is it better to bend towards peoples’ desires a little in the hope of retaining some level of control? Continue reading...

Burdened by genius: Maradona reminds us how peaking young brings its problems | Vic Marks
Following a Mexico 86 or Headingley 81 can weigh hard on superstars, which might be why many top coaches come from a lower rungThe death of Diego Maradona provided another reminder that life is seldom simple for the sporting superstar. Maradona was obviously a footballing genius, whose later life was, by all accounts, chaotic. In 1986, at the age of 26, the brilliance of his feet, his vision and his deception led to Argentina winning the World Cup. It doesn’t get any better than that. And that surely is the problem.It is not a common problem since it applies only to geniuses. Where do you go after scaling the highest peaks? This came to mind when I was chatting to Ian Botham recently. How could he ever hope to surpass what he achieved in the second half of the summer of 1981 at the age of 25? Geoff Hurst was never going to score another hat-trick in a World Cup final after 1966. How can Ben Stokes ever play a better innings than the one at Headingley in 2019? In the same way, how could Maradona top what he did in Mexico in 1986? I suppose one could also speculate whether Elton John was haunted by the thought that he might never produce a better track than Your Song, which was released in 1970. If so, it did not stop him trying. Continue reading...
