For Boris everything will always turn out for the best — until it doesn’t | John Crace
PM’s response to Omicron is to do the bare minimum his deranged backbenchers will tolerate Well, who would you trust with the nation’s health?On the Radio 4 Today programme, Jenny Harries, chief executive of the Health Security Agency and frequent celebrity guest at Downing Street press conferences, had rather suggested that she would be taking a more cautious approach to the omicron variant than the government. Instead of ripping off her mask in the pub and getting trashed at any Christmas party to which she could get herself invited, she would be limiting her social contacts wherever possible. And if the rest of us knew what was good for us, we would be following her example.John Crace and Zoe Williams will be live on stage in London at a Guardian Live event on 13 December.

The Guardian view on Labour’s reshuffle: attacking from the centre ground | Editorial
Sir Keir Starmer has strengthened his top team by introducing experienced and accomplished performers. But he needs to keep the party’s left on boardIn May, Sir Keir Starmer attempted to reshuffle his shadow cabinet following the disastrous byelection defeat in Hartlepool. It was a chaotically botched job, resulting in a damaging standoff with his deputy, Angela Rayner, and a slew of negative headlines. Six months on, bolstered by at last landing significant blows on the government over sleaze and broken promises, Labour’s leader did the job properly on Monday and dramatically reconfigured his frontbench. All bar five members of his top team have been replaced or moved.After a long period of drift, Sir Keir’s determination to get on to the front foot is understandable and welcome. The new team contains strong and high-profile performers who have the talent and experience to discomfort their Tory opposite numbers. The appointment of Yvette Cooper as shadow home secretary follows an impressive performance as the longstanding chair of the home affairs select committee. Ms Cooper’s clashes with Priti Patel are likely to be Westminster box office. Her track record on immigration policy makes her an experienced pair of hands, in a debate that Labour must handle with care. David Lammy, who replaces Lisa Nandy as shadow foreign secretary, is also a former government minister and one of the party’s most accomplished media performers. Continue reading...

The Guardian view on facing Omicron: the public may be ahead of the PM | Editorial
Boris Johnson says he is adopting a proportionate response. Is he doing enough to head off the risk?Since the beginning of 2020, we have all become used to living with uncertainty: estimating relative risks; thinking of how to protect ourselves and others; attempting to plot out lives in which school, jobs, travel and time with loved ones have a question mark attached.Now that uncertainty has increased again. The World Health Organization has said that the Omicron variant poses a very high global risk of infection surges. Experts suggest that it will take around a fortnight before the extent of the threat it poses becomes clearer, in terms of how much it sickens those it infects and how well existing vaccines perform against it. The chief executive of the US drugmaker Moderna, Stéphane Bancel, has warned that “there is no world, I think, where [the effectiveness of vaccines] is the same level” as with Delta.
