Close the BORDERS?
UK arrivals are facing up to 10 years in jail or a £10k fine, if they lie about their presence in a Red List nation on their Travel Locator Forms.
This mess would be far easier to clear up, if we had been tough or some would say, sensible and closed the borders from the onset. That action would have eliminated the threat of variants coming in and out.
If people can work via Teams or Zoom Nationally, they can do it internationally. There is no need for unnecessary travel in the digital age.
The new restrictions are tougher, therefor many people will fear and obey. But, if we're going to beat this dreaded virus, unpopular decisions must be taken, wishy washy restrictions just won't cut it.
So, the question is... should we finally close the borders until the UK populous is vaccinated and can claim heard immunity?
