Such confusion abounds from the Prime Minister’s statement. All sorts of contradictions, confusion amongst business, confusion amongst members of the public, what’s different from England to Wales to Scotland.

POSITIVITY This being Eurovision week, Bucks Fizz show their faces on BBC breakfast and sing their 1981 song ‘Making your mind up’, ably accompanied by presenter Steve Rosenberg. All self isolating, all putting themselves out for our benefit.  https://twitter.com/BBCSteveR/status/1260097796507656193?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Etweet
