UK Prime Minister Announces That Great Britain Will Be Lifting Virtually All of Its COVID Restrictions

By Mike Huckabee Published on January 20, 2022

While our “leaders” in D.C. continue to ramp up the COVID fear and authoritarian anti-virus measures, other nations are starting to recognize that the time may be here to just learn to live with it.

I reported recently on Israeli researchers who say too many vaccine shots may actually harm your body’s ability to fight the virus, and on the former head of the UK’s virus task force saying that Omicron is a mild variant, and Britain’s mass vaccination effort is a “waste of time” and should come to an end. He said the government should focus instead on protecting the most vulnerable, such as unvaccinated elderly people.

Imagine that: trusting the judgment of the people! Why, it’s almost like a free country!

Apparently, that message sank in, because yesterday, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that Great Britain will be lifting virtually all of its COVID restrictions. Johnson said the Omicron wave has peaked nationally and infections are leveling off. So the UK will end mask mandates and requirements for vaccine passports. He said, “We will trust the judgment of the British people, and no longer criminalize anyone who chooses not to wear (a mask.)” Imagine that: trusting the judgment of the people! Why, it’s almost like a free country!

Pondering What’s Next

Meanwhile, our leaders continue to make a bad situation worse by pressing more draconian mandates over strong public resistance.

Which brings up an interesting discussion: what if the Omicron wave is doing exactly as predicted by spreading natural immunity and ending the pandemic? COVID would become just another endemic problem like the flu that people have to periodically deal with. Will our leaders be willing to give up the unconstitutional power they’ve seized in the name of the “health emergency?” How will Americans react if they don’t? What about Americans who’ve been so frightened of this disease that they’ve become addicted to wearing masks, hiding out at home, and finking on their neighbors for just wanting to live their lives?

Dennis Santiago at RedState.com examines those questions and ponders what’s next and whether people who’ve adopted a “bunker” mentality will ever be able to come outside, blink at the sun, and go back to living normally again.
