Poor old holiday companies still trying to advertise holidays, flogging a dead horse I reckon, they’ll be so many rules and regulations to adhere to that it’ll be virtually impossible to travel.

It's a farce something bigger going on I'm telling ya .. I'm out of here . Stay safe everyone

From the BBC. I'm confused...

Are restrictions more severe than March?

We know that the UK is going to threat level 5, the highest level, which means there is a danger of the NHS being overwhelmed within 21 days.

When the prime minister announced these threat levels in May he was clear that during the first lockdown the country had only been in level four.

At the time he also said: “The higher the level, the tougher and stricter we will have to be.”

So on that basis should we have expected tighter restrictions in England than we saw during the first lockdown in March?

If anything, the restrictions appear slightly less severe. For example, support bubbles and childcare bubbles exist this time. Also, outdoor playgrounds will be open when they were closed last time.

Can I just say as well, as much as I've given Boris grief lately, that presser was much better. Setting out clear plans and how things are going to work, without guaranteeing things. Four top categories of people all done my February, least it gives us an idea on the numbers and where we should roughly expect to be come mid Feb.

We are the same. Only paid a deposit up to now. Might right it off. I ain’t keen on travelling abroad whilst they are still checking temperatures on arrival etc and there’s a possibility of me spending the week in a quarantine hotel if I’m deemed a risk.  I also assumed when we booked that things would be well back to normal by June.

Meant to be having a carpet fitted at the end of the week, I'd ripped up half the old one yesterday as well, hopefully it'll still be fitted.

I have a fridge freezer on order, that had stupidly long delivery time anyway. I assuming they'll still bring it, as even before tier 4 they said they wouldn't be able to bring inside for me. 🤞

That's my take on it.  Why are people talking about Lockdown 2 (or is it 3?)

 

The first lockdown was the only real lockdown.  Everything shut - except the Co-op.  Anything since then has been largely a shambles. 

 

The Christmas 'day off' was negligent.  He gambled his popularity against tens of thousands of deaths.   It's only numbers. That's how much he gives a shit.  He held off as long as he could.

 

There was some professor/epidemiologist on CH4 News earlier basically saying that if the govt doesn't get it's finger out & smash these vaccines out, it could mutate again & into a mutation that the vaccine doesn't deal with.  It's not a case of vaccinating the old & the vulnerable, then putting your feet up.  It could mutate in the un-vaccinated masses & make it's way back into care homes, etc.  And we're back to square one

 

 

 

 

As we let it spread wider, the chances of it mutating into something more deadly multiply. Half the people in the country could tell you that his plans for Christmas  were stupid, however it’s been abused and now we’re all paying for it. 
 

This semi lockdown still isn’t going to quash stuff, whilst we have construction sites, shops, offices etc open. It needed a full lockdown weeks ago. Full lockdown, close the borders, shut everything for 3 weeks. The world can wait. 

 

I’m a conservative, and at the last election, I really toyed with voting against Boris, as we maybe had a better path. The handling of this entire pandemic has been farcical. I was originally of the opinion that others wouldn’t have done any better, however I’m not so sure now, seeing how other countries are going. 
 

Quite frankly, I’m annoyed with the government, however I’m more annoyed with the idiots that have flouted rules, anti vaxers, flat Earthers, conspiracy steering, virus doesn’t exist pillocks.

Surely you're not suggesting it's being made up as they go along?
