Even the State-Sponsored Karen Propaganda Network BBC Admits That Deaths Due to the Lockdown Will Soon Exceed Deaths Due to Covid that the Lockdown Is Intended to Prevent

By the way, Boris Johnson announced a shift from "stay home" to return to work but "stay alert."

The Karens, led by CNN, of course began attacking him.

Boris Johnson has come under fire from UK lawmakers after he was accused of fumbling the move to loosen some parts of the UK's coronavirus lockdown. Politicians are demanding clarity and regional leaders are breaking from Downing Street's message.

The Prime Minister batted back criticism in Parliament on Monday, as his government unveiled its 50-page plan to creep out of lockdown and "rebuild the UK for a world with COVID-19."

Johnson has ditched the nationwide "stay at home" slogan and replaced it with "stay alert," and said in a televised address on Sunday that everyone who was unable to work from home -- such as construction and manufacturing workers -- was now being "actively encouraged" to return to work.

But as the country enters its eighth week under unprecedented social and economic restrictions, his call sparked confusion among many Brits about when and how they can go to work, leave their homes, or socialize.

Johnson urged people to avoid public transport and stay at home if possible, leading to accusations of mixed messages. Leaders in Scotland and Wales meanwhile said they would stick to the "stay at home" message, and London's public transit authority said it would only be able to carry 15% of passengers even after it restores 100% of services.

And Johnson's deputy Dominic Raab muddied the waters further in a round of media interviews on Monday morning when he gave conflicting statements around the size and nature of gatherings that would be permitted between people from different households.

Sound familiar? The same people who say that two million are going to die, no now it's 100,000, wait now it's 70,000...

The same people who told us masks were useless, and also it was critical to save masks for medical personnel because they save lives, and also now that masks are critical for everyone and now mandated by law...

The same people who say we have to lock down just until we "flatten the curve" and then, when the curve has been flattened, announce we must stay in lock down until we have a vaccine...

are accusing other people of not being clear and offering "mixed messages."

At 7:45, an analyst notes that Britain's attempt to craft a rational policy was "blown off course" by gales of chatter from social media and regular media, who were all demanding lockdowns now.

On the plus side, we saw the largest graduating class of medical doctors ever, with about fifty million new M.D.s being minted on Twitter between February 21 and April 30.
