Boris Johnson vows Britain is on ‘route map back to normality’ as he scraps WFH


PM Boris Johnson has ordered the nation back to work — vowing Britain is now “on a route map back to normality”.

Bankers, accountants and others were summoned back to their offices yesterday after the Prime Minister ditched the work from home advice.

Boris Johnson ditched the work from home advice as he vowed the nation is now ‘on a route map back to normality’

Speaking on a visit to a medical diagnostics centre in Somerset, he stressed his priority was rebuilding the nation post Covid.

He said: “We’ve been able to move from Plan B back to the status quo. People can go back to work.”

Alongside ditching masks and vaccine passports, the PM insisted yesterday the nation was now returning to normal after a fall in Covid cases.

And he vowed ministers would do everything in their power to get NHS delays caused by Covid pressures back under control.

But unions moaned about his “back to work” call, when staff are working hard at home.

FDA union boss Dave Penman said: “It’s insulting as the PM said ‘back to work’ when everyone’s continued to work hard, whether at home or the office.”

Workers at Goldman Sachs, PwC, HSBC and Citigroup were yesterday getting back to their desks.

And government offices have been told to open “so staff can return to normal working patterns as soon as possible”.

But Health Secretary Sajid Javid admitted not all of his staff would be able to return as there is not enough office space.
