If that's to encourage people to self-isolate after a +test, the sort of person who doesn't still isn't especially with £500 of the governments money in their pocket. What a dumb and ridiculously expensive idea.

Now there is a brilliant idea. I have been having some texts with a member on here who has lost someone last week to this. My bet is Chris Whitty is probably more qualified than anyone to tell

This sign should me made mandatory in all public spaces!! 

I don't understand why this is even a conversation. It is plainly obvious that wearing a mask is to protect others, not yourself. Any kind of face covering reduces the amount of vapour you expel and h

Couldn't agree more. I get that if somebody will loose income due to self-isolating then a payment will ease the problem but if somebody's income is not decreased* and expenditure not increased then why should it be necessary to give them  money for having been infected?  (* I could have said e.g. people on benefits, but I'd have meant only receiving benefits with no other income. Also people like myself aren't impacted, I get sick pay, or if I'm well but isolating then I can simply carry on as normal working from home).

A week or so ago, I noticed something on the field next to where I live, whatever it was arrived over the course of one day. A couple of days ago I walked the few hundred metres and found that it's a lot of glass bottles, so went and collected them yesterday and took them to the local bottle bank (as art of my now daily walk). I picked up in excess of 12 bottles (all Lambrini , all the same size 1.25l IIRC), so either one household got through 15litres + of that stuff in a day, or there was a gathering to celebrate some event, and it was well after Christmas. Obviously here in the countryside we are immune to the infection hence not needing to follow the rules, pity nobody informed the virus of that.

If they people a grant of £500 for abiding by the law and self isolating then I will be applying for a £500,000 grant for being a law abiding citizen all of my life!

Ridiculous idea!

I had a late night visit from the police last night checking on my recent movements!   It seems that one of my neighbours has been monitoring my movements....    Anyway, copper was nice as pie and no case to answer!   However, it sort of made me wonder what life would have been under the Stasi

Your neighbour sounds like a nutter with not enough to keep him/herself occupied

I see the Archbishop of Canterbury (aged 65) has jumped the vaccination queue.

So a vaccine is better protection than Religion. Yup, that figures as most Religious Factions are just political groups anyway.

It seems that religion wants to be exempt from mass gathering bans, the NYC wedding with 900 people was Jewish too. Strange!

May be these covidiots should be excluded from hospital treatment if they get covid, or have to pay a large fine before going into hospital.

A huge % of Police work is currently dealing with COVID law breakers and people who don't realise they are breaking it (or those that do and don't care)! Plus of course those instances where people dial 999 because their neighbour has gone out for the 2nd time that day so "It can't be essential". So I feel your pain but the Police have to be seen to be acting.

You would be shocked by how many people are breaking the rules constantly. Walking with 2 other people from outside their household, travelling to a park 10 miles away when there's one 30 seconds away because "I wanted a change of scenery". Having someone round and telling you they are "their support bubble" then the next day its someone else (you can't change it), Refusals to wear masks making up some crappy health issue they don't have a exemption certificate for, "Just popping out for a drive because I was bored", meeting some mates in the park, going out and getting a bunch of flowers "for the Mrs to cheer her up", Having 2 other couples round for a game of Bridge because "We've done it for 30 years and we added them on our support bubble" (which is their grown up son and not their elderly friends). I could go on for ages.

The Police only Issued 5 x £200.00 fines for the 400 people gathering - Not sure that is much of a deterrent for the attendees.

However the venue / organisers were fined £10,000 and that is going to be a deterrent.  The 5 guests detained were perhaps all the attending officers could get to before the crowd dispersed!

As it was a wedding I would have thought they must have a guest  (fine) list that could be examined and all asked to prove they were really somewhere else.

No they weren't - the Police are considering it - the venue is claiming they new nothing about this 🙄, they are looking at the organisers but I bet this goes nowhere.

No compaints at all.  The policeman was friendly, professional  and polite.   I would prefer them to clamp down on offenders

A friend of mine caught the Rona. In his 50s but fit as he went to the gym 5 times a week doing weights and HIIT classes. Recovered after 2 weeks but gave it to his partner.She's a bit younger but asthmatic. She had to stop taking her asthma medicine as it's steroid based so impacts the immune response.

Anyway all went quiet for a couple of weeks but the update is his partner has recovered OK but he is suffering from long covid effects. Severe fatigue and breathlessness.

It's not just death you need to worry about.

New nothing so why we're black out curtains at every window

True, they are facing the fine and of course the venue will do what it can to get out of it but that does make it quite different to 'only issued 5 £200 fines' that you noted.

The problem is who is actually facing the fine.

The school is claiming it new nothing as it used a 3rd party for letting the premises

The 3rd party was just doing it's job and letting it as it had been charged to do (no longer apparently - contract cancelled)

The newly weds?

The person who booked the hall - who may claim they were never there and new nothing etc.. etc..

It just seems to me that it could be a real can of worms tracking down who was actually culpable especially as they only fined 5 people (I assume this means those are the only personal details the Police obtained)

 

Personally I think its a good opportunity to throw the Mother in Law under the bus.

Every time I see groups of old ladies or friends walking around together my heart is lifted a little and inside I give them a salute or a thumbs up. 

Ive written to my MP 4 times telling her I do not consent nor do I appreciate these lock downs and I will not be voting Tory next election. Shes been pretty apologetic about it...luckily it turns out her husband shares the same views as I do on the subject! Actually seems a fairly decent part of Boris's MPs do too and have been telling him to end them.

I see the movement of mass opening restaurants and pubs on the 31st January seems to be gaining pace. I do hope so but we will see.
