We really do like the United Kingdom, but they always manage to come up with something to remind us why we fought a war to be independent. The New York Times is reporting that the British government may officially approve of hugging and kissing starting next week.
Hugging and kissing in England could be government-approved starting next Monday, after a year of nodding, waving and bumping fists and elbows. https://t.co/Dj6zlYZ6vA

Single Britons have been unable to meet for up for sex with overnight stays and indoor socialising banned since December.
But Boris Johnson tonight confirmed a raft of changes to lockdown laws from May 17.
People from two different households in England will be able to meet indoors from Monday.
Social distancing rules for those who know each other will also be relaxed to allow people to kiss and hug – meaning casual sex is back on.
Couples who live apart and are not in support bubbles will also be allowed to meet up indoors for the first time since January.
Remember when “the rights and liberties of Englishmen” was a thing Britons fought for? https://t.co/0Pfkzr0SFo

When I was in 6th grade, the cool girls began issuing "cuddling licenses" to all the cool kids. These "allowed" a boy and girl to make out in a dark space with social approval. It seems these pre-teens of my youth are now running the British government …

Hugging and kissing? In England? The place where even married couples just nod politely and say 'Sorry' when they pass each other in the hallway in the morning? Guess the new normal has officially arrived then…..
