Boris Johnson’s Covid-19 update speech went down like a cough in a lift – 17 baffled responses

Excitement has been mounting since rumours emerged that the lockdown rules were about to be eased. The Sun and the Mail were really excited.

A new slogan was leaked on Saturday, ahead of Boris Johnson’s Sunday night speech, which only caused a certain amount of confusion.

The speech itself, prerecorded before a planned cabinet meeting to discuss the next steps, only confused matters more.

He introduced a five-level warning system, like the one for terrorism.

And he baffled people with who can or can’t go to the park.

One point everybody understood was that the Prime Minister said that people who can’t work from home should go to work, avoiding public transport if possible.

Here’s what people had to say about the update.
