JANET STREET-PORTER: Do enjoy your first trip back to the pub – just don’t expect to have any fun

Who fancies a trip to the pub? Monday, April 12 is the long-awaited day when we can finally chill out at our local and enjoy a drink with family and friends. But don’t get too excited. A simple pleasure has become (in the hands of Boris and Co) an exercise in unnecessary red tape, with … Read more

JANET STREET-PORTER: Please DON’T smile and say hello in the countryside this weekend

Just when you thought that our pervasive nanny culture couldn’t get any worse, the wet and woke brigade have turned their attention to my favourite place on earth – the English (and Welsh) countryside, with a new edition of the Countryside Code. Issued in time for the Great Easter Exodus, the most rage-inducing advice it … Read more

JANET STREET-PORTER: I’m not a huge fan of Meghan but I don’t believe being bossy makes you a bully

Posh people always say that ‘having staff’ takes some getting used to.  Apparently, it’s all to do with breeding and knowing exactly where to draw the line. Employers must not be too imperious but should steer clear of being over-familiar. Absolute tosh, of course. Having met several Royal butlers, my worry would be the huge … Read more

Janet Street-Porter: Boris Johnson’s vaccine strategy has enraged EU

Boris has blundered his way through this crisis – but his decision to invest in four different vaccines, ordering over 200 million doses to protect Brits against Covid-19 was a masterstroke. That inspired strategy won’t cancel out the depressing fact that the UK will probably see up to 150,000 people (we’ve already achieved the highest … Read more

JANET STREET-PORTER: Boris Johnson’s vaccine strategy was pure genius

Boris has blundered his way through this crisis – but his decision to invest in four different vaccines, ordering over 200 million doses to protect Brits against Covid-19 was a masterstroke. That inspired strategy won’t cancel out the depressing fact that the UK will probably see up to 150,000 people (we’ve already achieved the highest … Read more

JANET STREET-PORTER: Boris promised us the vaccination programme would be fast and fair

If one more person texts me the good news they’ve had a jab, I’ll scream. Over 400,000 people were vaccinated yesterday, and centres are opening apace in high street pharmacies, and even a mosque. But scoring an appointment for vaccination remains a lottery depending on where you live. In the North East over two thirds … Read more

JANET STREET-PORTER: I’m not down and out and I can’t afford to fly to Dubai so how CAN I get jab? 

JANET STREET-PORTER: I would drop everything and crawl to any location. So far, nought. If you’re loaded or homeless, you’ve got more chance of getting a jab in the next couple of weeks than most pensioners (me included). Travel agents are offering trips to Dubai by private jet for a jab – for £40,000 a pop. … Read more

JANET STREET-PORTER: If Boris wants us to stay fit the petty police should take a hike 

JANET STREET-PORTER: One of my few remaining pleasures is under threat from an army of self-appointed guardians citing public ‘safety’ I’m 74, but (providing I’m smiling, not frowning) I don’t think I look it – all thanks to walking. No Botox. No fancy cream at £100 a pot. My recipe for good health is stout … Read more
