But it must surely mean closing our borders, temporarily but immediately, not just to countries deemed higher risk but to all (with a small number of exemptions for certain jobs).
We are told our jabs should work against the worrying South African Covid variant.
Other new strains must be kept out, especially with so many still unjabbed.
Every day, that number falls at a fantastic rate.
Almost a million people were inoculated at the weekend alone.
That, like Britain’s commitment to donate excess vaccines to nations in need, is a cause for huge pride.

One in four Brits fears being unable to afford the weekly shop if such cut-price promotions are axed — the latest panic measure aimed at getting us slimmer.
It will bite hard for hundreds of thousands left unemployed by Covid.
Obesity has worsened our virus toll.

Quick fixes won’t work.

Our annual trade with them is already worth £111billion.
Scrapping 95 per cent of tariffs should hugely increase that and create jobs.
Unlike the EU, the CPTPP is not an exclusive customs union which outlaws other deals, imposes its laws and seeks to absorb Britain into a giant superstate.
It’s exactly the sort of global opportunity we should now exploit.
And it’s another nail in the coffin of the sneering critics still trying to claim that Brexit created an insular Little Britain.
