Andrew Lloyd Webber has said he is determined to open his theatres on 21 June, even if he risks being arrested … “We are going to open, come hell or high water,” he told the Telegraph.
The government has said it will make a judgement soon on whether to proceed with the lifting of lockdown restrictions on 21 June.
According to reports, that date may be pushed back by the government due to concerns over the impact of Covid-19 variant.
Theatres are currently able to operate with with reduced capacities and socially distanced audiences.
Lord Lloyd-Webber has previously insisted that productions like his large-scale musicals are “impossible” under those restrictions.
More of this. There is not the slightest justification for ongoing restrictions to our liberty. Alas, Boris and Gove are held hostage by the crazies at SAGE, half of whom are politically suspect, none of who have lost a day’s wages and none of whom have the slightest regard for liberty or the the economy.
What we have is to odd, small outbreak, thanks to tinfoil hat-wearing anti-vaxxer muslim loons. Most of those in hospital are such. Well tough. They had the chance to be jabbed and turned it down. The rest of us shouldn’t be burdened by their decisions. Florida and Texas are fully back to normal and things are fine. We need to remid ourselves that the vaccines work for a purpose, and it isn’t to carry on as we have been for 18 months because of a few tinfoil hat-wearing anti-vaxxer muslim loons. I’m noticing more and more people without face masks. Good. They need to be binned.
