KIDS will still be allowed to visit Santa this year, according to the government’s official rules for families to follow this Christmas.
Bad news for Brits wanting to celebrate New Year’s Eve in the usual fashion as millions will be banned from pubs and gatherings.
People will not be allowed to go to the pub or mix inside with their Christmas bubbles on New Year’s Eve and the government has warned that there will be no exceptions..
This comes as Boris Johnson has said the nation is “nearly out of captivity” in a rallying cry to beat coronavirus – and urged Brits to work together and “kick Covid out”.
Writing in the Mail on Sunday, the Prime Minister also warned of the disastrous consequences of scrapping tiers as he faces growing unrest in his own party.
“We are so nearly out of our captivity. We can see the sunlit upland pastures ahead. But if we try to jump the fence now, we will simply tangle ourselves in the last barbed wire, with disastrous consequences for the NHS,” he said.
“So let’s do the job properly. Let’s work together, and with tiering, testing and vaccines let’s make 2021 the year we kick covid out, take back control of our lives and reclaim all the things we love.”
