Most of England’s coronavirus restrictions will ease from Monday, July 19, more than a year since they were first put in place. Boris Johnson announced this week that his cabinet’s so-called Freedom Day will go ahead as planned, but did the Prime Minister’s body language unveil more than his words?

CardsChat, the number one website in the world for poker news, has teamed up with Adrianne Carter to examine Boris Johnson’s facial expressions and body language signs.

Adrianne is a counselor, psychotherapist, and certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Natural Success psychology coach.

Known as The Face Whisperer among fans and clients, she has worked with multiple global brands including Apple, Unilever, and The National Trust.

The expert in faces, emotions, and body language, looks beyond people’s words and knows when an individual is lying or not.

On Monday, July 12, Mr Johnson confirmed to English residents that Freedom Day will go ahead as planned next week.

From July 19, face coverings will no longer be a legal requirement for those living in or visiting England.

All legal restrictions on social contact will also be removed.

Although the Prime Minister told the world “now is the right moment to proceed” to the final step of England’s roadmap out of lockdown, Adrianne claimed there were signs of “no confidence” in his speech.

The body language expert said: “During Boris’ announcement on Monday, July 12, the signs of no confidence within his own speech were shining through.

“As soon as Boris’ speech starts he greets the camera with a false smile and almost immediately starts shaking his head while talking.

“If you take a close look, you’ll notice that Boris is blinking rapidly throughout his announcement.

“He blinks so rapidly throughout that it’s impossible to keep track of.”

Adrianne explained that “one of the main tell-all signs of a liar is rapid blinking”.

She continued: “If someone’s blink rates rise while a certain topic is being discussed, it’s most likely to be a sign of them feel uncomfortable and caught in their own lie – highlighting the inner stress they’re feeling.

“You’ll notice throughout Boris’ announcement, and across many of his past announcements, his eyes are darting across the room.

“In this case, his eyes were darting across the room, to the audience, his peers, his speech and the camera.”

Adrianne claimed: “Throughout the speech and the many other speeches that have taken place during the pandemic, Boris is seen to be stuttering throughout and messing up his own words, making us question whether what he’s saying is the truth or not.

“During Prime Minister’s Questions on July 14, Boris is seen, once again, stuttering and messing up his words while talking about vaccinations and school returns.”

Adrianne went on to explain the key signs to look for in a liar.

As well as rapid blinking and darting eyes, these include touching face, closing eyes for longer than a second, false smile, sweating, blushing, shaking head while talking, change in tone of voice, and fidgeting.

On Monday, July 12, Mr Johnson outlined the final steps of easing England out of lockdown. He said: “We think now is the right moment to proceed, when we have the natural firebreak of the school holidays in the next few days.

“But it is absolutely vital that we proceed now with caution. And I cannot say this powerfully or emphatically enough. This pandemic is not over. This disease coronavirus continues to carry risks for you and for your family.

“We cannot simply revert instantly from Monday, July 19, to life as it was before Covid.

“We will stick to our plan to lift legal restrictions and to lift social distancing, but we expect and recommend that people wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you come into contact with those you don’t normally meet, such as on public transport.

“We’re removing the Government instruction to work from home where you can but we don’t expect that the whole country will return to their as one desks from Monday. And we’re setting out guidance for business for a gradual return to work over the summer.

“And as a matter of social responsibility we’re urging nightclubs and other venues with large crowds to make use of the NHS Covid Pass – which shows proof of vaccination, a recent negative test or natural immunity – as a means of entry.”
