GB News presenter Nigel Farage insisted that he would not be locked down again under any circumstances. While speaking on GB News, Mr Farage reflected on Boris Johnson’s latest announcement on the Government’s winter coronavirus plan. Mr Farage did praise Mr Johnson and his Government for being prepared and the Prime Minister appearing very logical in his arguments.
However, he went on to say that he believed the country should learn to live with coronavirus.
Mr Farage said: “Personally, I can’t bear the thought of further restrictions, this has now been going on for 18 months.
“If we start to get more restrictions, who is to say that it won’t go on for two, three, four or five years.
“I think we have simply got to learn to live with this virus.

“I do understand that as a Government they have to prepare for all eventualities.
“For me, I simply won’t be locked down again under any circumstances.
“Let’s hope that it doesn’t come to that.
“I hope that you agree with me that Boris Johnson was actually very together and really quite logical in the arguments he was making whether you like them or not.”
During the press briefing, the Prime Minister insisted he and his Government were committed to sticking to plan A in the fight against coronavirus.
This plan consisted of the public being responsible and getting their vaccine jabs and wearing a mask where appropriate.
Mr Johnson replied: “The vaccines have made a huge difference in reducing mortality.
“The ratio of cases to serious disease and death is vast.
“We are continuing to advise everybody to be sensible and responsible.
“Plan A, what we are doing at the moment, is telling people to think about using a face covering while in a confined space and for meeting people you don’t know.
“Wash your hands, use ventilation, get a test and stay at home if you feel unwell.
“These are very important restrictions that I think are part of the ways we behave responsibly.”
