'Hasta la vista, baby': Boris Johnson bids farewell, and has 5 bits of advice for Britain's next prime minister
Departing U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson bid farewell to lawmakers in his own inimitable style. He told British parliamentarians not to pay too much attention to Twitter, described the leader of the opposition Labour Party a "pointless human bollard" and — his final shot — channeled "The Terminator" as he told the House of Commons, "Hasta la vista, baby." Johnson is leaving office when a successor is elected after a series of scandals and controversies. © Provided by CNBC Prime Minister Boris Johnson speaks during Prime Minister's Questions in the House of Commons, London.
Lower Saxony Minister of Health Daniela Behrens, when the Corona test infrastructure is possible to start up, assumes the federal government. If the federal government regards extensive test obligations again, he must ensure this, said the SPD politician on Thursday at the request of the German Press Agency. According to Behrens, the draft of a revised infection protection law now wants to examine the draft of a revised infection protection law, according to Behrens on Wednesday by Federal Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD) and Federal Minister of Justice Marco Buschmann (FDP). © Julian Stratenschulte/dpa/archive picture Daniela Behrens (SPD) after their swearing -in.
a test obligation should apply nationwide in hospitals or care facilities nationwide from October. For a little more than a month there have been free bourgeois tests only for risk groups and some exceptional cases. For tests, for example for family celebrations, concerts or meetings with people aged 60, three euros are due. If you want such a test, you have to sign that it is made for this purpose. Behrens and also Prime Minister Stephan Weil (SPD) had clearly criticized this regulation.
BUND supports Uniper, Chancellor "Nobody wants to leave"
The BUND gets in at the gas supplier Uniper - as in Corona pandemy at Lufthansa or in the financial crisis at Commerzbank. There are price increases on gas customers, but there will be further help.
Behrens welcomed that the federal government submitted a bill early on. Lower Saxony has campaigned for the mask obligation to be part of a pandemic concept in particular. "If we want to offer an autumn wave our forehead, we literally need a strong defense system that provides the countries with an instrument box with appropriate and proportionate protective measures.»
The measures should apply from October 1, 2022 to April 7, 2023. Until then, the legislative procedure for the new rules must be through: the first thing to do with the suggestions will deal with the suggestions, then the Bundestag is on the train.
Lauterbach published an overview of Twitter on Wednesday, which showed that the federal states could determine some measures themselves. As in previous phases of pandemic, different rules in the federal states could apply.
Canada says pope's apology to Indigenous not enough
QUEBEC CITY (AP) — The Canadian government made clear Wednesday that Pope Francis’ apology to Indigenous peoples for abuses in the country’s church-run residential schools didn't go far enough, suggesting that reconciliation over the fraught history is still very much a work in progress. The official government reaction came as Francis arrived in Quebec City for meetings with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Governor General Mary Simon at her Quebec residence, the hilltop Citadelle fortress, on the second leg of Francis' week-long visit to Canada.
federal states can therefore set mask duties on the bus and train or publicly accessible interiors. In restaurants as well as at cultural and sporting events, there should be exceptions to the mask obligation for people whose vaccination or recovery after an infection was a maximum of three months ago.
The current Corona Ordinance of Lower Saxony is still valid until August 31. In this regulation, for example, mask obligation in local transport or a test obligation in health and care facilities is specified. How it will continue after August 31 and which of the options may be implemented in Lower Saxony from October is not yet known.
The federal states should also be given the opportunity, for example, to prescribe tests in schools. A mask obligation at school is only provided if otherwise it would not be possible to regulate presence lessons - and then only from the fifth school year.
on August 25th is the first day of school after the summer holidays in Lower Saxony. The Ministry of Culture had already announced that it should be determined around two weeks in advance how Corona tests will be used. In the past school year, daily tests were prescribed after several holidays.
