It only takes a few days for Mixmag to catch up with what the rest of the world already knows. Today, they ran an article about the latest imminent changes to England’s lockdown rules – whilst also failing miserably to explain that very fact to readers.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed that people in England would be allowed to exercise discretion as to whether they wanted to hug each other from then on. Quite why anyone needs a politician to tell them this is quite the mystery, but I digress.

Anyway, we already knew he was going to announce this. Mostly because someone had leaked it to all of Monday’s newspapers, just like this government does with almost everything. And on Tuesday afternoon, Mixmag finally caught up. Having a long weekend, were you?

For once however, they ask an extremely interesting question. Why will people be allowed to hug each other inside their houses but not allowed to go onto dancefloors? There’s obviously less sweating involved with hugging, but other than that… yeah, I’m struggling with that one too.

Even a blind squirrel can find a nut from time to time…
