    Default British Lockdown Updates

    British Lockdown Updates

    - All of Scotland to close its bars and pubs
    - City of Liverpool worst affected in England and has closed gyms, pubs and bars
    - Northern Ireland rumoured to be on the verge of closing hospitality sector
    - Criticism of Coronavirus measures as being an 'overreaction' increasing from scientists and media

    Distinguished scientists around the world are demanding sanity. Even our pathetic MPs are beginning to wonder if they have been had. The media are slowly waking up to their proper duty of questioning authority.

    The fact that most people who get Covid-19 are just fine is starting to sink in.

    The mad shutdown measures are visibly not working, because you might as well seek to control the wind by law as try to control a virus by shutting pubs or wearing a damp nappy on your face.

    Demands for the evidence behind these measures are met with coughing and shuffling, because this evidence does not actually exist.

    Those robbed of livelihoods have started to realise that this is not some summer dream but that they are on the dreary slope that leads to Universal Credit and penury.

    Be patient. But be angry as well. This too will pass, if we resist it, but I truly hope, for the sake of social peace, that nobody dares to stop a son hugging his grieving mother ever again.
    Opposition now to all this is spreading in the media/among scientists & journalists, with the British public becoming more sceptical.

    The fact is, as Lord Sumption has been saying for many weeks now, these sorts of rules are unenforceable in a free society and won't work.

    Over 80 MPs 9 of which 40 were Tories - rebelled against the 10pm curfew so opposition is even growing within Parliament.

    Thoughts?

    Pretty pointless bringing in tiers if they are on about a mini 2/3 week lockdown during half term.

    I genuinely think borris is obsessed with nandos and is sat there scratching his head for ideas. 100% if I want to get drunk and go out on the lash earlier, this 10pm cerfew is noncence and I would be more inclined to go to a house party anyway again breaking social distancing.

    Give it another month and we will all be wearing wrist trackers.

    The whole thing infuriates me. We should have been lockdown sooner, kept in lockdown for a longer period, school openings staggered and unis that were able to move to online learning and reduce the costs.

    The thing is, they could lock us down for one month, two months, a year or two years and the virus will still be with us and then come back. It's like whackamole.

    The economy is going to be holed below the waterline. God help us if a great depression hits and we can't even afford to turn the lights on.

    Can't possibly imagine why things are so much worse in the areas where people don't believe in the virus and think going on out the lash is more important than keeping people alive

    Maybe it's possible that people living in cities find it harder to socially distance given the higher population density than in the leafy shires? Perhaps people in the north *have* to go to work even if they don't particularly want to, to survive given wages are lower here, rather than sit at home and see their business/job go to the wall?

    Not what I said, but right now it just shows a disregard for human life (especially with the "herd immunity here we come" posts) and isn't necessary. A wednesday night rave consisting of enormous groups battling the police is not needed. Nice of you to seemingly change your tack and admit that it's nothing to do with people going to work though, it was even more disingenuous of you than usual to try claiming that it was - especially after your post the other day stating that most of the people you saw in Liverpool aren't bothering with distancing or masks. I wonder what tangent you'll go off on for your next post
