PM denies accusations of ambiguity over mask wearing
Boris Johnson lifted the vast majority of the remaining Covid-19 restrictions in England on July 19, as the country moved to step four of its coronavirus lockdown roadmap. Every adult in the UK should have had the chance to have both doses of a coronavirus vaccine by mid-September, the Government said. The government has said it was not expecting work in offices to be completely back on July 19.
The latest review of the UK’s travel restrictions is the most eagerly anticipated yet, with hopes that additions to the green list could mean a last-minute summer holiday abroad. From August 2, fully vaccinated people travelling from the EU and the US can enter the UK without having to quarantine. The rumoured amber watchlist could put thousands of holidaymakers at risk of having to stay in hotel quarantine.

Britain is sending a team of investigators to the Gulf as it draws up a "concerted" response to an Iranian drone attack on an Israeli-linked vessel last week that killed a British citizen. Mark Power, the UK deputy ambassador to Israel, told Israeli broadcaster Kan that the team was being sent after London received "clear proof" that Iran carried out the attack. Kan reported that the team will arrive in a few days at the Emirati port of Fujairah, where the damaged vessel - Mercer Street - is doc
“Shortages” — as in empty shelves and lengthy order backlogs — were rare because Adam Smith’s “invisible hand”— in modern day terminology, the price mechanism — did its job. Supporters of free markets hated everything about Soviet central planning because the invisible hand was not allowed to function.

There is a near-panacea that can lower the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer and high blood pressure. It has no side effects, or long-term problems and is very cost effective. And it’s a box of fruit and vegetables. According to the recently-published National Food Strategy, an independent review by restaurateur Henry Dimbleby, giving out free fruit and vegetables to some people could be hugely beneficial for their health. The report also notes that improving people’s diets could s
Ministers are being urged not to create a new travel traffic light category that could put thousands of holidaymakers at risk of having to endure an enforced stay in hotel quarantine. Reports have suggested there is a fallout among Cabinet ministers over proposals to introduce an amber watchlist, designed to warn travellers of the possibility that countries with concerning coronavirus data – which could potentially include Italy and Spain – could be put onto the red list at short notice. Paul Charles, chief executive of travel consultancy The PC Agency, is one of those to have railed against the idea of an amber watchlist.

Another of Britain’s heritage engineering assets today moved to the brink of foreign ownership after US firm Parker-Hannifin revealed a £6.3 billion swoop for the aerospace and defence products firm Meggitt. The 800p a share agreed deal for FTSE 250-listed Meggitt is a 70% premium on Friday’s price and also higher than where the Coventry-based firm traded prior to the pandemic. It is the latest in a long line of bids for industrial assets in the UK, with aerospace and defence now a key battleground after last month’s £2.6 billion attempt by Cobham’s private equity owner Advent to buy Ultra Electronics.
