Julia Hartley-Brewer was noticeably downbeat during her TalkRADIO show as she delivered a monologue against the June 21 reopening date being delays. Ms Hartley-Brewer, who has been a staunch critic of the Government’s lockdown measures, cried out she had enough of following restrictions in light of the successful coronavirus vaccination programme. Many listeners praised and agreed with the radio host after she stated her views were not in the “minority” anymore.
Speaking on her morning talkRADIO show, Ms Hartley-Brewer took aim at any proposals to extend the June 21 reopening date.
She said: “We don’t need to be doing it this way, we have the testing capacity.
“It doesn’t have to be so expensive, it doesn’t have to be so laborious, there are plenty of ways of doing it.
“We don’t need to close borders, but fair enough to the countries which are having a massive outbreak and there’s a new variant – that makes sense.
“But in terms of other countries in Europe, these people largely have not been vaccinated at the same rate that we have.
“But we’re not at risk to them and if we start going on about Indian variants and those variants already in most European countries anyway.
“If people can show they’ve had a vaccine or negative PCR tests then what is the issue?”
Health Secretary Matt Hancock revealed that around 75 percent of new UK Covid cases are of the Indian variant but vaccines were still highly effective against it.

Ms Hartley-Brewer continued: “This is the thing, the vaccine is the route out, the testing is the route out except when someone decides they’re not.
“We queued up and got the vaccine, I still have a bruise about three inches in length across on my left arm from my second job.
“I’ve done what I was told to do, I’ve worn my sodding mask, I’ve washed my hands, I’ve stood two metres apart.
“We’ve tried everything and it’s still not enough and they’re still talking about a two-week delay to lifting lockdown.
“I’ve obeyed every rule. I’ve done everything. I’ve had the vaccine I’ve avoided family things I’ve stuck to everything, that’s it, now, I’m done.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced earlier this week that he saw nothing in the data which suggests a delay to the June 21 reopening date.
But Mr Johnson stressed the data was still “ambiguous” as scientists were monitoring closely whether there would be any surges.
The Government said it would give at least a week’s notice if there would be any lockdown lifting delay meaning many will have to wait until June 14 for official confirmation.
But various scientists and virologists have clashed on whether it is the right time to reopen the country as they fear variants may cause more disruption.
