Boris Johnson’s warning to workers that they must not go to work is a reminder for them: ‘Go out’, but keep in. Stay safe at home. But go out.

  • In a press conference, the Prime Minister called for work from home.
  • However, he insisted that workers have access to Christmas parties.
  • The meme prompted users on social media to ask questions about his wisdom. 

After Boris Johnson instructed people to work at home, but encouraged them to go to Christmas parties, the internet was overflowing with memes.

Boris, who is currently in hot water over the alleged lockdown breaking bashes at No 10 was ridiculed for his advice.

Funny mock-up images and graphics were posted about the Prime Minister at 57.

A mockup of Bob Mortimer, comedy icon and panel host of Would I Lie to You was included. The PM also wore a hat.

Elsewhere, the famous slogans that were used to start the pandemic were changed to include the motto “Go out but stay in,” and “Stay safe at home but not out”.

One participant joked that they would be selling tickets to Downing Street’s next Christmas party.

Last night, the Prime Minister refused to allow schools to cancel their nativity plays and for workers at offices to stop celebrating Christmas because of rising infection rates.

The government has been pushing ahead with plans to implement restrictions in England beginning next week, despite a doubled Omicron Covid number every two or three days.

Johnson, who made his opening speech just moments before, outlined the government’s Plan B to fight the virus. 

The workplace should allow employees to work remotely if they can, and from their office only if necessary. Public spaces will be included in the new rules concerning masks.

Covid passports for large groups will be mandatory at all hospitality venues.

The Telegraph reporter asked The Prime Minister whether he was telling companies to end Christmas party season for city workers.

One Twitter user joked they were able to sell tickets to the next party at Downing Street

The PM replied: ‘No in my view they should not be (cancelled)… We think that it’s ok currently on what we can see to keep going with Christmas parties… but obviously everybody should exercise due caution.

‘Have ventilation, wash your hands, get a test before you go – a sensible thing to do – to give everybody else at the party the confidence to know they’re going to be meeting someone who is not contagious. These are easy things people can do.

Speaking about school closures, he added: ‘We don’t want kids to be taken out of school before the end of term not – not that there’s long to go now.

‘We don’t want nativities plays to be cancelled.’ 

The best thing to do to have Christmas that is as normal or close as possible to the norm is to move on to Plan B.

‘Irritating though it may be it is not a lockdown, it is what we set out a while back, and to get your boosters and get your jabs…is the best way forward.’ 

Johnson faced another question about Downing Street’s official Christmas party, which was held last year. This is being examined by the Met Police in conjunction with the Cabinet Secretary.

However, the PM maintained that the rules had been followed to the best of his knowledge. He could not be specific about what was actually happening.

After intense criticism from the public over the past week, today’s PM declared that Simon Case, Cabinet Secretary, would submit a report on the rule violation of December 18, last year. 

At the time, the government’s guidance specifically said that there should not be Christmas parties.

London was placed in Tier 3 on December 18, 2020. This law stipulated that no indoor gatherings should be allowed, unless it is’reasonably needed’ for work.
