The co-founder and lead guitarist of Queen, Brian May has given a sneak peek from his daily exercise session on his condition bike and explained his thoughts about postponing Christmas in England due to the ongoing pandemic.
The legendary musician and astrophysicist, Brian May, has recently given an update on his life in the self-quarantine process and congratulated the prime minister of the UK, Boris Johnson, for announcing new rules for Christmas.
According to the latest statement of the government, the planned relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions at Christmas has been scrapped for tier four areas. The citizens will only be allowed to celebrate the holiday with members of their own homes and support bubbles.
Johnson also declared that there will be a travel ban between England and Scotland throughout the holiday season. While some people residing in the UK objected to the recent announcements on the eve of the new year, some of them, including Queen legend Brian May, supported the decision of Johnson.
May has appeared on Instagram to say that finally, Boris has taken his advice. The guitarist went on to explain that a relaxed Christmas was insanity, and was going cost thousands of lives.
While criticizing the prime minister for not showing leadership in the early days of the pandemic, May said to postpone Christmas is really not the end of the world. He supported his idea by indicating the fact that the citizens dealt with restrictions for nine months and surely they can wait another few months till the vaccinations kick in.
Here’s what Brian May said in his recent Instagram post:
“When the day is dark and grey, my bike will take my cares away… I’m not a pretty sight at the moment, but I wanted you, folks, to know that in the days when it’s hard to get out of bed, a bit of carefully monitored heart rate raising can really help to chase away the blues.
So, finally, Boris has taken my advice (!). Surely we all knew way ahead of him that trying to have a relaxed Christmas was insanity, and was going cost thousands of lives?
Well, here is our leader once again being dragged by his heels into making a decision he ought to have had the cohones (or cojones!) to make weeks ago. If he’d shown leadership in the early days of the pandemic we wouldn’t be in this situation now.”
“And although it might seem tough to postpone Christmas – it’s really not the end of the world. We’ve dealt with restrictions for 9 months – surely we can wait another few months until the vaccinations kick in?
Plus — the economic consequences of not containing this second wave would be disastrous. Much worse than losing a couple of weeks of business over the Christmas period.
Well, I’m dreaming of a nice Easter! And Christmas next year. Stay safe and make sure your family makes it to next Christmas and beyond!!! Love to all. Bri.”
