Good Morning Britain presenter Adil Ray, 47, has taken to Twitter to vent his frustration at the general public’s “obsession” with the remaining coronavirus restrictions lifting on June 21. The newsreader argued that following reports of new variants of Covid being located, a “further delay” would be deemed “sensible” to stop the virus from spreading, while questioning what it was that people were so desperately looking forward to doing.
What is it that we badly need in 3 weeks time?
Tweeting in view of his 96,000 followers, Adil made his view on the subject very clear.
