How long do the evil incompetent Tories need to stop the death planes entering the U.K.???

Cooper asked why the government had not stopped travel from Brazil, given the risks of the newly identified variant of the disease.

“You were warned about the Brazil variant three days ago. We don’t know, yet, whether that variant could undermine the vaccination programme. Why aren’t you taking immediate action, on a precautionary basis?” Cooper asked. The prime minister replied: “We are: we’re putting in extra measures to ensure that people coming from Brazil are checked: and indeed stopping people coming from Brazil.”

Brazil had already banned direct flights from the UK on Christmas Day, amid concerns about the Kent variant of the virus.

But ministers are understood to be considering halting flights from neighbouring countries as a precaution, to prevent travellers from Brazil arriving indirectly.

It is understood the government’s expert committee on new and emerging viruses, Nervtag, considered the implications of the Brazilian variant on Tuesday.

A decision on a travel ban is likely to be announced after a meeting of the ministerial Covid-O committee on Thursday – and could also include neighbouring countries.

It is not yet known whether the Brazilian variant is more transmissible than previous iterations of the disease – or whether it could be vaccine resistant.

Asked by Cooper whether he was contemplating a flights ban, Johnson repeatedly said the government was “taking steps”.

“We’re taking steps to stop the Brazil variant, as we’ve taken steps to stop the South African variant being imported into this country, as indeed the French took steps to prevent the Kent variant being imported into France: that’s what countries do,” he said.

Flights from South Africa were banned before Christmas, after a new variant of the disease was identified there. Cooper pointed to evidence showing that the virus had reached Europe from China via a series of routes early in the pandemic, not simply through direct flights.

“It’s nearly four weeks since we were warned about the South African variant, but if I wanted to travel from South Africa here today, I could get a flight via Dubai or Istanbul, with no test before I left, no test during, no test on arrival; go straight on to the tube from Heathrow, and then on to a train and travel home across the country,” she said.

Staggering really. And no doubt at the U.K. death toll hits 140,000, the hapless idiot Handcock will still be going on about a “ring of security” and handing out vast contracts to his latest bar man at our expense, dipping his bread in the public purse while he still can

Johnson, Handcock, Raab, Reece Smugg, and Johnson.

For God’s sake go.

What's so funny ?
COT is correct. This shambles of a government is responsible for this country having the highest CV death rate in Europe, and per capita one of the highest in the world.
We are an island. We should have had stringent testing facilities / closed flights, from infected countries over a year ago.
Instead, millions of passengers have continued to come into the country and out into our population with zero checks.

Yes, I agree irresponsible people have led to the virus spreading.

But then we've had a Government that failed to react quick enough to the pandemic threat

Shutting down 1 week/10 days too late , cost 20,000 lives.
Then subsequent, failure to provide sufficient/adequate PPE,
Moving tens of thousands of elderly patients from hospitals into care homes without any COVID checks,killed tens of thousands.
No checks at borders
A failed ' track/trace system.
Another  bungled lock down,
The farce of ' 5 day holiday ' at Xmas, 
' back to school ' for a day !!!
Not to mention the circus surrounding Cummings and the ' message' that sent out to the public.

Every step along the way this government has been in ' catch up or u turn ' mode.
It's no wonder the British public have been confused/ frustrated/ cheesed  off with what they were supposed to do or not to do.

This government has been an utter shambles. Their strategy in handling thie virus has been incompetent and calamitous in the extreme.

Brilliant observation that care workers either in hospitals or in care homes are part of the 'old people' genocide

So very true facts and well observed.

But never mind. What are tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths compared to Tory donors, chums and Handcock’s former barman getting a PPE bonanza from tax payers. Good to know the doctors, nurses and other health care workers as well as the older people did not die gasping for breath for nothing.

Letting the death planes come I. bringing in the people with the Brazilian strain may cost many many lives.

Stopping them would of course save lives.

Right through the pandemic Handcock has lied about this drivelling in about “ring of security”.

If there was nothing more that the Government could have done why has it got one of the very worst Covid records in the world. It’s treatment of the British people on Covid has been miles beyond incompetent and well on into pure evil. They could not even get PPE for doctors or nurses right without lining the pockets of Tory Party sponsors.

Of course that is perfectly okay for dim witted Tory supporters. Just like the virus spreading eye test of Cummings was just fine as well.

There is no point stopping planes or any other travel from Brazil , if the virus comes from somewhere else
The virus couldn’t be stopped. . And once it was in London that was game over
