BORIS Johnson today indicated social distancing would be over within a year as he vowed to work "night and day" to see off the coronavirus like an "alien invader". In a bold address to the Tory faithful in a virtual party conference today, he said his Government were working for the day life is "back to normal" – and the country must use the huge opportunities now to push through change. The PM vowed to "build back better" and make Britain the "greatest place on earth" with a plan to look beyond coronavirus with a raft of new policies to focus on in the years to come. The PM revealed new details of his plans for banks to offer higher mortgages to get people on the housing ladder, and for more one-on-one teaching for pupils in future. And he peppered his speech with jibes at the opposition with their "million-pound homes in north London" and "left human rights lawyers" he insisted that he would not simply expand the size of the state on and on. He said today of coronavirus: "It is not going to hold us back, slow us down, and we are certainly not going to let us get us down… even in the darkest moments." But he admitted: "I have had more than enough of this disease." And he promised that next time the party meets at the conference next year, it will be in person. He vowed: "We will ensure that next time we meet, it will be face to face and cheek by jowl. We're working for the day when life will be back for normal." He's previously said that the restrictions will last for at least the next six months, saying things will be bumpy "up to Christmas and beyond". The PM insisted the Government was working "night and day to repel this virus, and we will succeed. "Just as this country has seen off every alien invader in the last 1,000 years." Read more
