I’m seeing a lot of pubs/venues and people pretty much stating they’re going to ignore it. :rolleyes: 

 

The stuff about only going out to a pub in a family group is only advisory anyway, just to confuse things further. Rule of 6 is mandatory. So of course the former will be ignored. 

 

Imagine being a student coming to Newcastle Uni this year. Paying 9 grand and massive living expenses and not being allowed to socialise. Then lectures are online anyway because of the risk to lecturers. Fuck that. It'll be ignored and covid is bound to increase.

I think it pretty much encourages young uns to socialise in people’s homes anyway. Because they would normally be out until 1 or whatever in the town on a Friday or Saturday night. I know that breaks the rules, obviously, but what do they think pissed kids are going to do at 10 when the pubs shut? And the government know people won’t stick to the rules anyway. If you’re 20 and live with your mam and dad, you can’t meet mates for a drink down the pub but you can go to the pub, ditto couples not being able to meet anyone. Or 4 students in one household only being able to go out and drink with each other. It’s completely unrealistic to expect certain groups to stick to the rules. About as realistic as it is that all the infection increases are in households meeting, rather than public transport, schools, pubs, restaurants or the workplace

Exactly, not happening. Also, at the risk of going a bit tinfoil hat, are we really to believe the rate is much lower in London than places like up here and the north west

London is supposed to be 2 weeks behind the North, no idea why this should be though. Of course, the truth is we have no fucking idea what the true rate is here because test and trace has collapsed, that's the reason the councils pressed for the regional lockdown. It's probably 5 times higher than the official stats show.

Aye, completely unforeseeable. 

 

Along with all the other things I detest this government for, cronyism is going to wreck this country. Johnson and Cummings have purged their party and civil service of anyone who tells uncomfortable truths, and replaced them with nodding yes men and stooges. Awarded contracts for millions, billions even, to incompetent arseholes like Dido Harding and whoever is mates with Grayling or Jenrick etc. 

 

I hope one day there is a reckoning but I'm not naive enough to believe it. I'm too busy battling personal issues, many caused by the government, to get involved in politics any more. Maybe that's the plan. Make life so hard, people will be subjugated just by the need to survive. Maybe there will be a tipping point but who wants it to come to that?

The tories are ahead in the polls and would still have a majority if there were an election tomorrow. It would be much reduced but the fact about 42% would still vote for them makes me bereft of any hope of things getting better any time soon. I mean, it’s difficult to conceive a less competent cabinet and pm. Before you consider the levels of corruption and lies no one seems to give a fuck about. People are fucking stupid
