What did Father Covid bring you for Freedom Day? 28+ great responses to the new rules
If you woke up this morning feeling lighter, with a vaguely familiar spring in your step, it’s because today is Freedom Day – according to the government.
Most coronavirus rules have lost their legal status and moved to advice, making masks and social distancing optional – which will be welcome news to Laurence Fox, Right Said Fred and the corornavirus.
The landscape hasn’t exactly been ideal.
Have I got this right?
The health secretary has Covid.
The prime minister & chancellor are in isolation.
Yesterday we had over 700 new hospital admissions for Covid.
And over 50,000 new cases.
We’re *already* having to cancel cancer ops.
And.. tomorrow is “Freedom Day”?? 😳

Not everyone has been looking forward to the big day, although some disguised it with sarcasm.
So excited for the end of the pandemic tomorrow.

Tomorrow people in England aren’t being given freedom by the government; they’re being handed the blame for what comes next. Please take care of yourselves and each other x

Anyone who calls Monday 'Freedom Day' is an immense idiot and not to be trusted.

Do we hang out a surgical mask on the mantelpiece or do we put some hand sanitiser under the pillow for the Covid fairy? It’s so hard to know the etiquette #FreedomDayEve

What time tomorrow do we get the weekend Covid figures? I reckon that'll be the highlight of the day, when we all gather round the wireless, like the Queens Speech of Freedom Day.

Freedom day is always an anti climax. We hardly ever go out for it.

Now that ‘Freedom Day’ has arrived, people have changed their minds and realised it’s a great idea. Lol, just kidding.
