Boris Johnson urges Brits to get Booster to avoid Plan B

Boris Johnson urges Brits to get Booster to avoid Plan B
Oct 31 2021 Share

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has urged people to get vaccinated with their booster shots against COVID-19, so as to avoid a spike in cases but also the need to reintroduce restrictions over the winter holidays. With many scientists and medical groups calling on the government to take steps to reduce pressure on the health system of the country, the Office of National Statistics reports that the number of people with the virus in the UK is at the highest level since the second wave’s peak earlier this year.

And yet, Johnson seems to be suggesting that getting the booster will stop the rise in cases, saying that the numbers are being ‘watched’. He says the high cases ‘do not constitute any reason to go to Plan B.’ The majority of the population is vaccinated and hospitalizations and deaths are far lower, but experts and opposition politicians are urging the prime minister to introduce plan B, which would see mandatory face-masking and work from home reintroduced. Vaccine passports for higher risk venues and events would also be reintroduced.

Oct 31 2021 Share

Maltese Labour MP Cyrus Engerer will be making his way to Glasgow as part of the European Parliament Delegation at the COP26, the 26th United Nations Climate Change conference. World leaders will all be convening for this massive event between the 31st of October and the 12th of November in order to discuss the urgent measures on mitigating climate change.

Engerer said that the work done by his office in Brussels on the environment, climate change and the EU’s fundamental values ‘is reaping fruit and this is being recognized by the Group of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament Group and within the European Parliament’s administration.’

Engerer expressed his feelings of honor and humility in being part of the European Parliament’s delegation attending COP26, adding that the EU’s ambition must go beyond Europe’s shores in order to instigate changes worldwide. The European Union delegation will be led by Frans Timmermans, the European Commission Executive Vice President.

These celebrities have the most expensive insured body parts

Oct 31 2021 Share

With wealth comes the possibility of doing almost anything. And for some celebrities, that means insuring some of their body parts to become some of the most expensive biological items in the world. Owning the world’s most expensive car or business is one thing, but for these individuals… well, it’s their legs and, well, um, butts.

Let’s start off simple shall we (even if it’s totally bizarre)? Julia Roberts has had her smile (yes, you read that correctly) insured for a whopping $30 million. Now we’re not sure if it’s her entire mouth or just the ‘act’ of smiling that is insured such a way, but Roberts has gone and placed the price tag at a staggering amount for a showcase of her pearly white teeth.

Next up – legs. The first few make quite some sense – Gareth Bale’s legs are worth $126 million, Cristiano Ronaldo’s legs are worth $144 million, David Beckham’s legs are at $195 million and Lionel Messi set the price at $900 million. Given these are footballers, it’s not that hard to wrap your mind around the concept. But in comes Taylor Swift…

Iconic singer Taylor Swift insured her legs for $40 million, meaning an individual leg is worth a whopping $20 million. This was reported in a 2015 entertainment news portal, making Swift’s legs some of the most expensive limbs in the world. And finally, we couldn’t finish off this list without Kim Kardashian, who insured her butt at $100 million, pumped up from an initial $20 million. We’ll let you sit with that for a bit… pun not intended.
