Some readers think that the actions of Boris Johnson and his political party will make it impossible to enforce more restrictions.

Charlotte Anne, said: “Why would anybody listen to him?”

Natalie Wood, said: “How can they justify stopping everyone again, when it’s there in black and white that they clearly ignored the rules on a numerous occasions!”

Matt James, said: “The government are so worried about coronavirus, that they've breached their own guidelines on multiple occasions.”

Angela Austwick, said: “I don’t care one bit about respecting the governments rules.

"They have absolutely no right to expect anybody to do what they couldn’t!

"I do, however worry, and care very much for the NHS and the pressure they are under. Anything I did would be for them only.”

But some readers want a lockdown to go ahead.

Karen Lynn said: “We need to do this not for the government but for the NHS and all that work for them.”
