'Wouldn't go to Spain if you paid me!' Boris BACKED over quarantine on returning Brits

The UK Government announced on Saturday evening that holidaymakers who had not returned from Spain and its islands by midnight on Sunday would be forced to quarantine for two weeks. The decision was taken to suspend the so-called travel corridor with the UK’s most popular holiday destination amid increasing fears of a second wave of coronavirus after Spain recorded more than 900 new daily cases two successive days. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, who is on holiday in Spain, is among thousands of people caught out by the move.

Earlier today, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab defended the 14-day quarantine for travellers coming back from Spain.

The latest Express.co.uk poll, which ran from 3pm until 7pm on Sunday July 26, asked: “Is Boris right to impose 14-day quarantine on returning Britons?”

A huge 86 percent (3,094 readers) backed the Prime Minister’s decision to impose the latest coronavirus measure.

Just 13 percent (468 readers) disagreed, while the remaining one percent (24 readers) voted “don’t know”.

Express.co.uk readers threw their support behind the decision, with one saying: “The sheer unpredictability of fresh spikes in cases should have been a massive heads up to those wishing to travel abroad.

Another person commented: “Spain is clearly a hot zone.

“I would not go to Spain even if you paid me at the moment.”

A third Express.co.uk reader wrote: “People were warned when EU/worldwide countries and, the travel industry begged for air bridges to be created and they knew that these bridges can be withdrawn at ANY time.

“No point in criticizing the Government as this was a condition of them be created and, is/was precipitated between other countries abroad.”

One person said the Government should have gone a step further and “stopped all travel from Spain into the UK”, while another wrote: “It was irresponsible of people to go abroad on holiday when the disease has not gone away.

“They took a chance and it has backfired on them but the majority are more important.”

Several Express.co.uk readers also lashed out at Labour, after the party branded the Government’s handling of the issue “frankly shambolic”.

Shadow Health Secretary Jonathan Ashworth told Sky News’s Sophy Ridge On Sunday programme: “The way in which this decision has been communicated is obviously causing anxiety.

“When the Government makes decisions, whether it is putting a city like Leicester into lockdown or telling holidaymakers they are going to have to quarantine for 14 days, they have got to back it up with financial support for people.”

But one Express.co.uk reader raged: “You cannot wait if there is a sudden spike as in Spain.

“If you do thousands of possibly infected people will have returned and gone back into normal circulation.

“No doubt then hindsight Starmer would have criticised the government for not acting sooner.

“If Labour has nothing constructive to say it would be best ‘if they say nothing at all.”

Foreign Secretary Mr Raab appeared on the same programme on Sunday morning to defend the 14-day quarantine for travellers coming back from Spain.

He told Sophy Ridge: “The data we got was on the Friday, it showed a big jump right across mainland Spain.

“That was then assessed yesterday afternoon and we took the decision as swiftly as we could.

“And we can’t make apologies for doing so.

“We must be able to take swift, decisive action, particularly in relation to localised, or internationally in relation to Spain or a particular country, where we see we must take action.

“Otherwise, we risk reinfection into the UK, potentially a second wave here and then another lockdown.

“So, yes, I understand it is disruptive for those going through this who are in Spain or have been considering going but we must though be able to take swift, decisive action to protect the UK, because we’ve made such progress in getting the virus down, and prevent the virus retaking hold in the UK.”



'Nobody told me!' Trump humiliation as US president shuts down Russian bounty claims

The US President lambasted a report that claimed he was briefed on Russian efforts to target US troops with bounties. The New York Times claimed that Trump did not respond to the brief.

The report alleged that the president ignored a brief that Russia would Taliban linked militants to kill US troops in Afghanistan.

Trump responded to the allegation on Twitter, savaging the report and claiming he had no knowledge of the efforts.

He wrote: “Nobody briefed or told me, Mike Pence, or Chief of Staff Mark Meadows about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan by Russians.

“Everybody is denying it & there have not been many attacks on us.”

Trump also called on the New York Times to reveal its anonymous source who informed that paper about the report.

The New York Times claimed that the Russian bounties were linked to an intelligence unit, also believed to be linked to assassination attempts in Europe.

The Times also reported that Islamist extremists were beloved to have collected bounty money because of the offer.

The White House and Director of National Intelligence on Saturday denied the report, as well as Russia’s foreign ministry.

Pelosi said: “There is something very wrong here.

“But this must have an answer”

She also added that Trump had supported Putin by diminishing US influence in NATIO by reducing US forces from Germany and inviting Putin’s Russia back into the G8 after they were expelled in 2014.

House Intelligence chairman Adam Schiff, as well as Pelosi, also questioned why, if Trump’s claims were true, he was not told about the bounty offer.

Schiff tweeted: “If he was briefed and still wanted Russia back in the G-8, it’s even worse.”

It comes after recent allegations that President Trump has been collaborating with foreign powers for his re-election bid on November 3.

Former national security adviser John Bolton recently published a tell-all memoir that revealed that Trump had called on China’s President Xi Jinping to buy more American agricultural produce to boost Trump’s popularity in rural states.

He also confirmed in his book that Trump did attempt to pressure Ukraine’s leader to dig up information on Joe Biden and his son Hunter, which led to the President’s impeachment trial in January.

On the Russian bounties, Bolton told NBC news: “There’s obviously more to this story, but it is pretty remarkable the president’s going out of his way to say he hasn’t heard anything about it.”
