Social distancing could be in place for another year, reveals Boris Johnson
Boris Johnson says that social distancing could last another year as he pledged to end the measures by October 2021.
The Prime Minister made the announcement at a Conservative Party conference, promising normality by November 2021.
He told colleagues he expected people to be able to be "face-to-face and cheek-by-jowl" by next autumn.
Mr Johnson also said he had "more than enough" of coronavirus, which he described as an "alien invader" and the "plague."
He also played down concerns he has felt the long-term repercussions of virus, after Covid-19 landed him in intensive care and slammed suggestions that the virus had changed him.
The Prime Minister said: "I have read a lot of nonsense recently about how my own bout of Covid has somehow robbed me of my mojo.
"And, of course this is self-evident drivel."
He added: "‘The kind of seditious propaganda that you would expect from people who don’t want this government to succeed.
"And I could refute these critics of my athletic abilities in any way that they want, arm wrestling, leg wrestling… you name it.
"And yet I have to admit that the reason I had such a nasty experience with the disease is that although I was superficially in the pink of health when I caught it I had a very common underlying condition – my friends, I was too fat. And I have since lost 26 pounds."

Johnson also promised to not settle for the "status quo" and said he refuses to "define the mission of this country" to "restore normality."
He said: "We’ve been through too much frustration and hardship just to settle for the status quo and to think that life can go on as it was before the plague.
"It will not, because history teaches us that events of this magnitude, wars, famines, plagues, events that affect the vast bulk of humanity, as this virus has, they don’t just come and go …
"We can’t now define the mission of this country as merely to restore normality. That isn’t good enough."
