A COUNTRY that has spent the last three-and-a-half years obsessed with freedom is absolutely fine with being locked up until May.
Britons have confirmed they have no objection whatsoever to lockdown continuing for another five weeks, that it will probably have to be longer, and this has nothing to do with that other freedom thing they have been consumed with since 2016.
Retired pipe-fitter Roy Hobbs said: “Lockdown. No problem with it mate. Extending the transistional period? No f**king way.
“What’s being misunderstood here is the nature of freedom. You see, being in the EU was like slavery because we couldn’t make our own laws, while being confined to our houses indefinitely and fined if we go out is our choice.
“I actually feel freer now even though I’m only allowed an hour’s exercise a day than I ever did before January 31st under the yoke of foreign powers. It’s not a physical thing. It’s more something in the air.”
Margaret Gerving of Guildford agreed: “I think they should stop beating about the bush and extend the lockdown until the end of the year.
“Also introduce a curfew, get the army on the streets, and you need a permit to go the shops. We can do it. We’ve got our freedom to keep us strong.”
