With the concerning rise of the Omicron variant, Boris Johnson, 57, tonight re-introduced some restrictions as part of his Plan B, in a bid to combat the spread. As part of his latest speech, the Prime Minister said vaccine passports will be required for large events and that face masks will be extended to most indoor settings in England.

As expected, the latest restrictions have been a talking point on social media – with many divided over the rules. 

The Chase star Mark Labbett, 56, expressed his fury on Twitter as he called for Boris to resign.

He also took a swipe about an alleged Christmas party which reportedly went on in Downing Street during a time Tier 3 restrictions came into effect in London.

The quizmaster tweeted: “Prime Minister, you are kidding. Do the decent thing and resign #NoVaccinePassports.”

He went on to write: “So we are effectively cancelling Christmas, ruining travel and Christmas economy just to avoid apologising for a Christmas party? #NoVaccinePassports.”

Many of his 148,000 followers flocked to his post to comment.

Lisa commented: “Your not alone in your thinking Mark. I’m sick and tired of it all.”(sic)

Emma Blyth-Moor added: “It’s all a big con they can do whatever they want in government.

“People died while they were partying x.”

A third penned: “He was so obviously going to do this to diminish the response to the party situation.

“Hope the British public see through this and keep the pressure on.”

According to sources, a party took place in Downing Street with around 40 people in attendance in December 2020.

Boris has not denied that a party took place but told MPs “all guidance was followed”.

A spokesperson told the press: “Tthere was not a party and the COVID rules were followed at all times”.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has accused the PM of “taking the British public for fools”.

As part of his speech today, Boris also encouraged people to work from home where possible.

He said: “It may be we discover over the next few days and weeks that a combination of the booster and two jabs is capable of holding omicron in the way that we want and then we can move forward.

“This is not a deviation from the position that we thought we would find ourselves in.

“We always thought we would see a spike in disease and infection.

“The problem has been this sudden emergence of omicron. Given the potential numbers that omicron might produce we just have to respond today in the way that we are.”
