NOT COMING HOME: Boris BANS England Fans from Singing in Pubs 

BORIS Johnson has banned England fans from singing patriotic footie songs such as “Footballs Coming Home” and “God Save The Queen” in another attack on British people’s freedoms. 

The ban – issued under Covid-restrictions prohibit pub goers from singing, especially loudly, because it’s considered a COVID-19 transmission risk, despite the majority of Brits being vaccinated against the virus.

The Sun reported the government’s guidance covers any hospitality venue for that matter, so it’s not just pubs, and includes restaurants, bars and similar places serving food or drink as well.

Owners and staff at venues will have to adhere to the rules and make sure punters are obeying them too, especially if they are showing the Euro 2020 games this weekend where spirits will likely be running high.

Legal expert Graeme Cushion, who specialises in pub licensing, told The Sun: “I suspect our patriotism – particularly if England is doing well in the tournament – may get the better of us.

“Businesses showing games may ask you to sit down and not stand up to sing.”

“And if indoors, as soon as you do stand up, you should wear a face mask, which is going to make singing somewhat more awkward.”

Unfortunately, it means no ‘It’s Coming Home’ or ‘God Save the Queen’ ringing out around the pubs.

However, in more positive news, Wembley is close to getting the go-ahead to have around 50 per cent capacity at Euro 2020 knockout fixtures.

The Telegraph say talks are at an advance stage and the step is set to be taken irrespective of Boris Johnson’s decision on restrictions for the 21 June.”

Pending government approval, 40,000 fans are slated to be in attendance at the national stadium and there could be even more at the semi-finals and final if all goes well.

The England-Croatia fixture on Sunday is poised to house 22,500 fans, with proof of a full COVID-19 vaccination or negative lateral flow test taken within 48 hours needed.
