“Events, dear boy, events”. Boris reverses “irreversible” plan for post-lockdown pint

Boris Johnson has dropped plans to raise a post-lockdown pint today out of respect after the death of Prince Philip.

The Prime Minister had planned to visit a newly-reopened pub as lockdown eases in England, saying he would be “cautiously but irreversibly raising a pint of beer to my lips.”

However, he has axed the trip as the government cancels all routine ministerial press conferences, interviews and visits in the wake of the Duke of Edinburgh’s death aged 99
