THE sight of a sombre Boris Johnson and his scientists giving a Downing Street address was an unwelcome return to the dark days of Covid lockdowns.
But it was inevitable that cases of the fast-spreading Omicron variant would be seen in this country after we opened up world travel.4A sombre Boris Johnson and his scientists giving a Downing Street address on the risk posed by the Omicron variantCredit: PA 4Despite concern about how resistant the new strain is to our current jabs, 'vaccine escape' as Prof Chris Whitty dubbed it, there is no need to panicCredit: Universal News & Sport
Despite concern about how resistant the new strain is to our current jabs, “vaccine escape” as Prof Chris Whitty dubbed it, there is no need to panic.
So far only two cases have been confirmed here, so the Government is not being forced to race to catch up with events.
The measures announced last night — the mandatory re-introduction of masks, PCR tests for travellers and highly targeted screening — are entirely sensible precautions.
We don’t yet know enough about this variant to predict how devastating it could be. But one thing we do know is that you can protect yourself and others by following the rules.
Wear your mask and, most crucially, get your booster jab when you can.

BORIS Johnson will pay a massive price if he fails to tackle the migrant crisis.
So a Cabinet civil war on the issue is the last thing we need.4Priti's allies say she has faced a solo battle to get tough measures into her Nationality and Borders BillCredit: AFP
Reports that Number 10 has got the knives out for Home Secretary Priti Patel are worrying.
The PM must not allow a blame game to distract the Government from our real enemies, the evil people-smugglers.
Voters have lost patience with Boris over the lack of action.
There is already evidence of a big swing to Labour in the upcoming by-election in usually blue rinse Old Bexley and Sidcup.
If the PM offers damaging internal strife instead of united action he will face a pasting at the polls.Most read in NewsFRAT FIGHT TRAGEDY Girlfriend shares heartache after student, 20, dies after 'fight night'PUTIN’S POWER Russia begins mass production of 6670mph nuke missile 'too fast to block''JUST A SPERM DONOR' Serena's dad was a 'serial cheat with up to 20 kids', daughter claimsExclusiveBLACK FRIDAY CHAOS I survived mall shooting that saw screaming shoppers run for their livesLatestLOCKDOWN TERROR 1 shot after reports of 'active shooter' at mall as frantic shoppers hideDEADLY DEALS Black Friday Death Count shows how many shoppers died in shootings & stampedes Deportation mockery 4A judge blocked vile Enderle's removal on mental health groundsCredit: MEN Media
FOR an example of the scale of our deportation problems look at vile Ildiko Enderle.
This evil people-smuggler was sentenced to seven years in Romania for trafficking girls as young as 15 into the sex trade.
She was tracked down to Britain. But an Appeal Court judge, Mr Justice Holman, ruled she can stay here because her mental health could suffer in a Romanian jail.
What about her victims’ mental health?
If a convicted trafficker like her cannot be deported, what hope does the Government have of ever sending back any migrant?Boris Johnson holds a press conference on the Omicron COVID-19 variant

Neil Young returns to SiriusXM after pulling music from Spotify

Rock legend Neil Young is bringing his music catalogue back to SiriusXM after cutting ties with Spotify this week.
On Thursday, SiriusXM announced that “Neil Young Radio” will return to the satellite station to play the singer’s complete catalog — “from his solo albums to his work with Crosby Stills, Nash & Young to ‘Buffalo Springfield’ and ‘Crazy House,’ his latest album.”
Additionally, the service said, “listeners will also hear special programs including weekly concert broadcasts from Young’s vaults, celebrity guest DJs and a ‘Barn’ track-by-track album special featuring [Young] sharing stories about each song on his latest album,” they announced.
Young’s new album, “Barn,” was released last month with an accompanying film by the rocker’s wife, Daryl Hannah.
“I want to introduce you to some stuff that no one’s ever heard before,” Young said.
The move comes on the heels of Young giving Spotify an ultimatum: Remove the service’s superstar podcaster Joe Rogan or pull his music.Spotify chose Joe Rogan when given an ultimatum from Young. Getty Images
Young accused Rogan of spreading false information about COVID-19 vaccines, and described Spotify as, “the home of life threatening COVID misinformation” for airing the comedian’s podcast, in which they reportedly paid $100 million to exclusively steam.
“Lies being sold for money,” he wrote on his website. “They can have Rogan or Young. Not both,” he said.
They chose Rogan.
A spokesperson for Spotify said the company “regret[s] Neil’s decision to remove his music… but hope to welcome him back soon.”SiriusXM is welcoming Young with open arms after the legend was dropped by Spotify. Getty Images for Shock Ink
Meanwhile, SiriusXM is welcoming him with open arms after his radio channel’s limited run in December.
“When you have an opportunity to present an iconic artist still at the height of his creativity, you don’t hesitate to do it again,” SiriusXM Senior VP and General Manager of Music Programming, Steve Blatter, said.
“Outspoken, brave, and a true music icon, Neil Young is in a rare class of artist, and we are honored to collaborate with him to create a special audio experience for his fans,” he concluded.Filed under joe rogan , neil young , sirius xm , spotify , 1/27/22
