BORIS Johnson today finally ended his own locks-down by getting a long overdue haircut.
The PM has levelled up his unruly barnet after joking he was “starting to get dreadlocks at the back”.
At first he left the nation on a quiff-hanger, covering up with a hard hat on a visit to a building site in Goole, Yorkshire.
But then came the mane event as he removed it to show he’s shorn again.
The PM is now in razor sharp shape to take on Sir Keir Starmer, who has been mocked by Jeremy Clarkson over his “Lego hair” during lockdown.
However, the Labour boss has also had his hair cut at the weekend.
And the PM enjoyed the much-needed trim at the weekend along with a pint at the local near his Chequers country retreat.
The PM said today that Brits CAN drink and social distance safely – but admitted “some got it wrong” at the weekend.
After pubs opened on Saturday many flocked to their locals to enjoy a cold pint, but many were seen not staying apart to stop the spread of coronavirus.
He praised punters for “overwhelmingly” behaving themselves when the pubs reopened their doors for the first time in three months.
Asked during a visit to a rail construction site in Yorkshire if drinking and social distancing can mix, Mr Johnson said: “I think they can mix if people are sensible.
“Actually my evidence I’ve seen is yes – there have been some places where people have been imprudent and you can see there’s been some people who have been getting it wrong.
“But actually overwhelmingly over the weekend I think the people of this country did the right thing.
“There is a risk that some people will not obey the guidelines, that’s always going to be there.”
He added: “If we can keep it up, if we can keep going in the way we are, maintain discipline, enjoy ourselves but enjoy ourselves safely, then we will continue to drive down this virus and we will be able to get back to life as close to normal as possible as fast as possible.”
