To borrow a favourite Prince Philip word, it’s bunkum.

– A 10pm curfew for all pubs across England – and they will be made to offer table service by law.

– But businesses and schools will be able to stay open as No10 attempts to stave off a second lockdown.
– A dramatic increase in enforcement measures to make sure people are obeying the Rule of Six.
– More fines could be slapped on those flouting the rules with on-the-spot closures for venues that fail to follow the rules.
