COVID 19: Boris Johnson begs public for ‘cautious’ end to lockdown after humiliating U-turn.

BORIS Johnson has begged the public for a "cautious" end to lockdown amid the "extremely contagious Delta variant."

This comes after his shrieking U-turn this morning as he and Rishi Sunak tried to dodge self-isolation - causing an onslaught of political and public fury.

In a video from isolation, Boris Johnson said this afternoon: "Like so many hundreds of thousands of other people across the country, I've been pinged.

"I've been asked to self-isolate by the Test and Trace isolate system, after I've been in contact with someone who has Covid, in this case of course, the Health Secretary Sajid Javid.

"We did look briefly at the idea of us taking part in the pilot scheme which allows people to test daily.

"But I think it is far more important that everybody sticks to the same rules. That's why I'm going to be self-isolating until July 26.

"I know how frustrating it all is. I urge everybody to stick with the programme and take the appropriate course of action when you're asked to do so.
