    We know from the stats that anyone with an underlying illness be it chronic lung, heart or diabetes etc, is far more likely to be severely affected by this Strain or infact any past strain of Corona virus,therefore; it should have been a priority in this country of getting people in those catagories onto some kind of vitamin and supliment program, they would or should have been advised by the health board that this would have been a useful tool in combating the amount of people with severe health conditions being at a greater risk from corona virus.

    While inoculating people that are most likely to come in to contact with others is a good idea, the inoculation doesn't stop the virus from being spread only from you catching it, in my opinion NHS staff should be 1st on the list as without these people our healthcare would grind to a halt, as i've said it doesn't stop them spreading it if they come into contact with it but at least they won't end up off sick or even worst dead, after that inoculate on most likely to die if they catch it and so on.

    3. Children up to 16 years of age
    4. The retired and vulnerable

    That way we get the economy back on its feet faster, then the kids back to school and college/uni after the parents have been vaccinated, then lastly those whom mostly spend time at home and/or don't do anything to contribute to the economy (as a whole).

    The government's got it completely backwards as usual.
    Yeah, can you imagine the reaction in the country putting old folk at the back of the queue. Brave Government to do that.

    i think old folk have contributed plenty to the country. that order and attitude is fairly odd, and i doubt many would agree. you always vaccinate your most at risk of serious disease first. irrellevent of how much they currently put into the kitty.

    I get that, but the point is, in a city the size of London, he doesn't *have* to travel for 7 miles, in order to find somewhere different to cycle everyday!

    There must be an innumerable amount of suitable places where he could do that within close proximity to Downing St, and which with lockdown would be much quieter than usual, enabling ample social distancing, etc, and where he would be just as safe as the park where he cycled 7 miles to!

    As usual, and as has happened throughout this pandemic (with the Cummings fiasco, etc), his behaviour smacks of hypocrisy and double-standards: one rule for 'the elite', and another for 'the plebs'

    Members of the government, and especially the PM, should be setting exemplary examples to the rest of the nation (and displaying impeccable standards of behaviour, by following the rules to the letter), but some, including BJ Buffoon-Boy, seem to think that they're above them!

    Therefore, how can you expect others ['the plebs] to take a blind bit of notice of the rules, or worse how can the government criticise or lambast them when they break them (especially when many are so ambiguous), or preach to others how the rules should be followed, when they're just doing what the hell they like??

    They need to get it into their thick heads, Buffoon-Boy, especially, that the LAW (and rules set for behaviour during this pandemic) *applies as much to them* (and the power-hungry authoritarian police bullies) as anyone else!!

    How do you know he hasn't been using places nearby as well? Just because it hasn't been reported because there was nothing out of the ordinary to report?

    It's just another total non-story. Seems to me that critics of Johnson must be desperate if this is the best they can do. I notice that they've been somewhat put out by the EU trade deal too. 'The EU won't let us have our cake and eat it!' Wrong again.

    Even more so...these useless twats should be setting an example...I'll just reiterate something I said earlier...you don't need to go outdoors to exercise..and BJ is only going cycling because he likes to..I'm sure he could put his cycling hobby on hold for 6 months or so....or get an exercise bike for indoor use

    Stay at home everyone, it saves lives............................................. .................................................. ............Except Boris

    It seems to me, it's got fuck all to do with exercise, but an exercise to allow you to go outdoors...it's all bollocks..stay indoors...sign up to Peloton

    It's got nowt to do with picking on Johnson ..he's the prime minister ffs....If anyone should be leading by example it should be him...or did you think it would go un-noticed that Boris is going for a bike ride???

    Its a big problem when the majority of the nation dont understand simple economics. Sadly most seem to believe that infinite money grows on trees.

    Sure, but that doesn't negate his breaking of the rules (or not being true to the spirit of them, if you prefer, as he's asking of others) by going 7 miles to take some exercise. If he's also been using places nearby, then he should be sticking to those, and like a good boy, keeping his arse nearer home!

    The fact is, there are TONS of suitable places locally that he could use, and which there's no way he would've exhausted yet, so there is simply NO excuse for going anywhere else. He needs to heed his own words: STAY AT HOME!!! Simples.

    It's not a non-story if you abhor hypocrisy and double standards, or 'elites' lording it over their 'minions' (count me in), as those two girls who were disgracefully treated in such an unnecessary and appallingly heavy-handed manner, by bullies posing as Police, were utterly lambasted for essentially doing the same...!

    So, fair's fair, HE should've been similarly lambasted - even MORE SO - as he should've known better and be setting a flawless example to the nation of how to behave!!
