Kuwait votes for a new parliament.

Brexit is now more than just the long and panful withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community (EAEC or Euratom)

The UK rubbishes the Brexit trade deal since the EU won't grovel and act like a colony.

The French demand the most of the UK's fishing rights in Europe and the EU is concerned over unfair competition.

Spain, France, Belgian, the Netherlands and Denmark vow to crush the UK no matter what.

The US Congress passes a $9bn stimulus packet.

Ontario is locked down.

Bangkok is locked down.

Taiwan reports the first new case in 8 months.

Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Kuwaiti, the Netherlands, Germany, New York state (if it's judged constitutional), and Canada join the nations plague blockading the UK over the a new hyper virulent and possibly more lethal variety. The number now stands at 50, with Greece and Cyprus being the only EU states still open to the UK. The EU condemns their member state's blockade of the UK.

The truckers waiting for the UK-French border to open were at:

  • Over 1,500 lorries were backing up around Dover
  • 120 to 125 were in Mansfield Airfield in Kent
  • 900 were on the about M20 in Kent
  • About 100 were on the A20 in Kent
  • About 100 were on the A249 in Kent
  • About 600 were waiting elsewhere in Kent
  • They were waiting "all along" the still partly roadworks infested A2 in Kent
  • About 15 were at one point on the A232 in Bromley LB
  • 5 were at one point on Junction 3 on the M25
  • About 100 were on the A22 between London and the south coast
  • About another 2,000 along the rest of the English South Coast

Starving, cashless and depressed haulers protest in Dover. The Truckers at Mansfield Airport condemn the morning's hollow promise of government testing that morning. Firemen and the Salvation Army give food and sanitary products to the haulers trapped in Kent outside Dover. Most of the non UK victims are from Hungary, Germany, France, Romania, Moldova, Poland, Turkey and Lithuania.

Coventry's Covid-19 infection rate reaches the highest point for a month. Covid-19 related deaths fell for the second week in a row in England and Wales, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS). Wales, Scotland and N. Ireland are all in lockdown apart from Christmas day, which will be a tier 3. Tesco rations bread, fresh fruit, fresh veg and toilet rolls a panic buyers stripped the nation's retailers' shelves bear and supply chains collapsed.

S. Africa also gets a new hyper virulent, but possibly less lethal variety.
