Mayor Boris Johnson has said Britain is open for business, it’s perfectly safe, and everyone is having a wonderful time.
Speaking to reporters after concerns about opening up the country despite many close encounters and deaths, Mayor Johnson said: “I am pleased and happy to repeat the news that we have, in fact, caught and killed a large pandemic that supposedly hospitalised some citizens.
“But as you can see, it’s a beautiful day, the pubs and clubs are open, and people are having a wonderful time.”
So-called Freedom Day has not been welcomed by many scientists, who claimed the danger was still lurking undetected.
Local scientist Dr Matt Hooper was furious with the Mayor’s ignorant stance.
He said: “I’m familiar with the fact that you are going to ignore this particular problem until is swims up and bites you in the ass!”
And local police chief Lorraine Fisher, 34, added: “You’re going to need a bigger hospital.”
