By March 8, outdoor sporting facilities will reopen in the UK. By May 17, up to 10,000 supporters will be able to attend sporting fixtures

These are just some of the many eye-catching reopening milestones unveiled by Boris Johnson in Westminster yesterday. Our own situation is strikingly vague and conservative by comparison.

Regardless of the UK’s unenviable Covid response to date, Boris and Co have now set the tone for the rest of Europe to follow in terms of reopening. Holy season of Lent aside, it will be impossible not “to Covet thy neighbor’s goods” in this instance.
