EXCLUSIVE: Boris Johnson's father Stanley is spotted on the Tube STILL not wearing a mask properly as his son is poised to plunge country into Plan B Covid measures

Asia's Tech News Daily

PM's father, 81, was seen with disposable mask underneath his nose on the Tube Stanley Johnson previously embroiled in mask-wearing controversy last AutumnPrime Minister looks set to invoke winter 'Plan B' measures amid Omicron fearsNew and stricter regulations could see the return of full-time face covering rules

Stanley Johnson has been pictured incorrectly wearing a face covering as his son’s touted ‘Plan B’ Covid restrictions look set to see full-time face coverings rules reinstated.

The Prime Minister’s father, 81, appeared to doze off with his disposable mask underneath his nose while aboard a Bakerloo Line service at around 2pm on Wednesday.

According to Transport for London’s website, it is a condition of carriage for passengers to wear face coverings correctly over their mouth and nose or they could be thrown off and risk a fine – starting at £200 and rising up to £6,400.

Wednesday marked Mr Johnson Sr’s third infraction of mask-wearing rules over the past 14 months, having previously been caught out with his face covering below his nose at a newsagent in central London and again at Athens airport last year. 

Downing Street has previously said that coronavirus rules should be followed by everyone, including the relatives of senior Government figures.

The pictures emerged as it was widely reported that the Prime Minister was set to introduce more restrictive measures, including stricter enforcement of face-mask wearing, under ‘Plan B’ Covid measures at some stage this week. 

Mandatory work from home rules, compulsory face masks being extended to pubs and restaurants and the introduction of vaccine passports could all form part of the sweeping changes touted by Boris Johnson’s response to Omicron.

Transport for London (TfL) rules state that masks must be worn for the ‘full duration of journeys’ in the capital city, including ‘inside stations’. 

Johnson Sr was embroiled in further face-covering controversy when he failed to wear his mask in a supermarket and was later pictured with one pulled down his face while he read in an airport last October.

He was seen reclining on an airport chair at Athens airport while reading a book with his mask pulled the whole way down his face on October 4.

Just days before, the 81-year-old faced a fine following an apparent breach of Government regulations when he was pictured mask-less in a corner shop in West London.

He apologised for the incidents and claimed he was still ‘learning every day’. 

At the time, it was mandatory for people who were not exempt to wear a face covering in all indoor settings to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. Those failing to do so could have been fined a minimum £200. 

It comes as SAGE warned ministers that Omicron hospital admissions could breach 1,000 a day in England by the end of the year without tougher restrictions to stem the spread of the super-mutant Covid variant.

In a move that could bounce No10 into activating its winter ‘Plan B’, the expert panel said it is ‘highly likely’ Omicron will make up the majority of British infections within ‘a few weeks’ and put ‘unsustainable pressure’ on the NHS.

Leaked minutes from SAGE’s emergency meeting today showed that the group also expect the highly-evolved strain to trigger several thousand admissions per day at a peak in January if it is allowed to spread unchecked.

The ‘Covid O’ Cabinet committee has met for crunch talks this afternoon and Boris Johnson is expected to sign off on plans for a blanket order to work from home where possible, more mask-wearing, vaccine passports and stricter isolation rules for close contacts of infected people either today or tomorrow.

There is growing pressure on the Government to tighten restrictions after the total number of British Omicron cases rose to 568 today, with the highly evolved variant now in every country in the UK and almost every region of England.

Ministers have already introduced mandatory face masks in shops and on public transport in England and, on November 27, promised to review the measures after three weeks.

The remaining restrictions under Plan B include the introduction of mandatory vaccine passports for larger events and nightclubs. These passports would prove people are double-jabbed and can attend the event.

The Government has previously said it will seek to give businesses at least one week’s notice before mandatory vaccine certification is enforced.

Face masks may also be brought in for other settings, such as when moving around restaurants, while the Government has said the plan allows for ‘asking people once again to work from home if they can, for a limited period’.
