England is on a “one way road to freedom”, Boris Johnson has said as he revealed his four-step route out of lockdown, which could see all aspects of society reopened by June 21. The prime minister, laying out his roadmap out of lockdown, said he hopes to fully reopen the country and remove all limits on social contact within months, so long as the battle against coronavirus continues to go to plan. Comment: None of the governments predictions have reflected reality so the chances that it ‘will go to plan’ now are low, and thus the likelihood the restrictions will remain is high. He told a Downing Street press conference that the rollout of Covid-19 vaccinations had “shifted the odds in our favour”, allowing for a gradual reopening of society.
