What utter nonsence and a pathetic attempt at turning this into your own little rant about Boris. People born in the 30s/40s inherited bombs. Those in the 70's inherited unemployment and serious hardship, while we've had to stay at home and watch box sets on our 50 inch tv screens. And you complain, and complain.
Pull up your sleeve and do your bit. AND STOP MOANING!

The thing about nonsense is just that - it is nonsense. Talking up the prospect when there is worse to come is just propaganda aimed at making people feel better as their livelihoods are destroyed.

Let's hope that those businesses on the brink of bankrupcy can hold on until then.
Keep those vaccines coming and feel lucky to live in Britain - others will have to wait much longer.

Let's face it, some just don't want prosparity for the UK, just termoil.
Some will knock any positive article even if its about the sun rising in the morning.

No mention of higher taxation, higher cost of living inc council tax rises and, the elephant in the room, Brexit. I don't know anyone who is looking to splurge on anything other than a foreign holiday when lockdown ends. Pub trips to buy booze at 4 x the price of drinking at home? Cinema trips? Ha! Please. So out of touch....
So out of touch? Looks like you're describing yourself Removed

Stop telling people to stop moaning when you are obviously one of the morons who set this traincrash in motion and are sitting on your arse with your inflation linked pension payed for by the youngsters who cant afford a pension or house. Removed

Best thing folks could actually do is to pay down their debts, especially credit cards (first) and then mortgages. A property and credit-based economy only benefits the bankers.......

"many UK households had strengthened their finances during lockdown" - only if you're an employee. The self-employed and small businesses have been left to rot.
