Shameful Hotel Quarantine Failures Exposed

The Point News has seen photos that show the shocking quality of food served to travellers quarantining in Government hotels.

Before viewing these images, it is worth bearing in mind that a 10-day stay will cost £1,750 per person – which is largely unaffordable for many people.

You can guarantee that if Her Majesty’s Prison Service were caught serving food of this quality to a convict, there would be an immediate outcry by the media, the Government would order a swift investigation into the prison and the Food Standards Agency would rush to prosecute.

The second picture is of particular concern. It is simply unfathomable how food that has been contaminated by what appears to be an insect could be served to someone in a hotel. Secondly to that, regardless of your views on vegetarianism, paying £1,750 and not being served vegetarian food is nothing short of outrageous.

However, we must remember that this is all in the name of keeping the British public safe. Keeping the British public safe from the new ‘mutant variants’ of Covid-19 that are rampaging across the globe. Of course, unless you write for The Independent that statement is sarcastic. Like it or not, many countries across the globe have suffered far less than Britain during the pandemic, and the Government’s continued refusal to open up international travel is becoming increasingly untenable.

The two ‘meals’ depicted here perfectly epitomise the disaster that the hotel quarantine has been thus far, to the point where the images we have included above don’t really do it justice. Mouldy curtains, dirty sheets and stale breakfast pastries have also been cited.

To make matters even more dire for those who wish to enter this country, the G7 leaders were all able to circumvent any kind of quarantine. Even globalist icon Emmanuel Macron was able to join in the event, after the recent travel fiasco between the UK and France. The entire event was a complete slap in the face to the working man. Figures from the establishment elite were allowed to seamlessly enter the country and leave again within less than 10 days – the time that many travellers are confined to hotels.

UEFA officials are considering moving the Euro 2020 final to Budapest.

Unfortunately, there is another potential scandal on the horizon. UEFA is planning to hold the final of the European Championship at Wembley stadium. However, in order for this to occur, the footballing body is demanding that thousands of officials are given quarantine-free access to the United Kingdom.

The punchline is that Boris Johnson and the rest of the Government need to make up their mind. Should they waive any kind of quarantine? Does the entry of 2,500 foreign officials create a risk to the British people, and the NHS? This is something that the Government seems exceptionally keen to avoid.

The ‘rules for thee, but not for me’ platform is on thin ice. The British people have a right to know why a self-anointed elite comprised of world leaders and corporate officials do not have to conform like the rest of the population. Whether the ivory tower of Westminster will provide clarity on the issue however, remains uncertain.

We say that with roughly 75% of the population having received at least one vaccine, no-one should be made to go through the torrid experience of a hotel quarantine. If the government is so confident in Pfizer and AstraZeneca, then international travel should be allowed to resume as normal.
