Following the introduction of new curbs last night, social media has seen memes ridiculing Boris Johnson as well as No10.
Twitter users tried to find the funny side with posts portraying the PM as a busker and a sign reading ‘0 days since s**t show’.
Johnson ignited mutiny among Tory backbenches when he activated his Plan B restraints in an attempt to deal with the Omicron variant.
According to the Prime Minister, working remotely will soon be possible again. Large venues will require vaccination passports. Cinemas and theatres will also need face covers.
Johnson faces a difficult task in trying to convince the public, with No10 itself in turmoil over allegations of illegal Christmas parties a year back.
In one of the memes Mr Johnson was portrayed holding a guitar with the words: ‘And I will tell 500 lies, and I will tell 500 more… Just to see the public scared s**tless to set foot outside their own front door… TORY PARTIES! (TORY PEOPLE) TORY PARIES (TORY PARTIES)’

Johnson made a tribute to Allegra Stratton his ex-spokeswoman. She resigned Wednesday after an explosive video of her laughing about Downing Street’s potentially dangerous festive event.
He stated that there was no excuse for the aides’ frivolity in the footage. However, he said that Ms. Stratton had been a fine colleague’ who contributed to the COP26 summit.
The PM was repeatedly asked why everyone should follow his lead when his employees were accused of breaking rules. He replied: “The British people… understand the crucial importance of the medical data that we give. They understand the importance of taking it seriously and putting it into action.
Johnson flatly denied the claim that Plan B had been announced as an ‘unsanctioned’ strategy to deflect attention from party scandal. Johnson said that the variation’s impact was now “unmissable”.
