Madonna has donated so much money that she may legally become the EU's newest member

As if 2020 wasn't weird enough already, Madonna may end up replacing the United Kingdom as a member state of the European Union.

Because of an obscure EU law unearthed by Politico's Paul Dallison, Madonna can join the organisation because she pledged more money to fight coronavirus than several of its actual members.

Greeks marvel at Britain's Covid chaos as their lockdown lifts after 150 deaths

Greeks, like many other Europeans, have been left astonished and alarmed by the Johnson government’s handling of the public health emergency. Britain’s chaotic strategy, initial soft-touch approach and high death toll have been met with disbelief in a country that, despite the eviscerating effects of a near decade-long debt crisis, has kept the virus under control.

“Johnson’s management of the pandemic has been almost Mediterranean in style, flippant and carefree,” said the economic analyst Antonis Papagiannidis. “You can’t help but think that people have been left to rot, that the interests of the economy were put before health.”

Government’s new Covid-19 slogan criticised prior to PM's speech

The Government’s new slogan for the next phase in the fight against coronavirus has drawn a lot of scorn.

After the successful bluntness of the shutdown message of “stay at home, save lives, protect the NHS”, Britons are now set to be asked to “stay alert, control the virus, save lives”.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says Scotland will be not using the new slogan, while leaders in Northern Ireland and Wales also insist the stay at home message will be maintained.

Government urged to reconsider plans for two-week quarantine for returning holidaymakers

Airlines and tour operators have urged the Government to reconsider plans to force all international arrivals, including returning UK holidaymakers, to self-isolate for 14 days.

The proposals, revealed by The Telegraph last month and expected to be confirmed by Boris Johnson on Sunday evening, would make overseas holidays virtually impossible for the foreseeable future and - in the absence of financial support - almost certainly put dozens of travel firms out of business.

Doctors warn of second coronavirus wave as UK lockdown weakens

Senior doctors fear that growing non-compliance with the lockdown risks triggering a second wave of Covid-19 infections.

They also believe that Boris Johnson’s decision to start urging people to “stay alert” rather than “stay home” will confuse the public and make it even harder to enforce the restrictions on movement designed to save lives and protect the NHS.
