Agreed - hence the "fresh air" part of the slogan.

Can't see what the difference is between a marquee in the car park and being inside the pub

It’s colder, further from the bogs and there’s no fruit machine.

Just had to pop to Wickes for some supplies. The local retail estate is heaving, looks like a busy Saturday. Even Wickes had queues at the tills and kids running around. Very little effort to socially distance evident. As I'm working on the house I have been in Wickes and B&Q fairly regularly and this is by far the busiest it has been - at 3pm on a Tuesday afternoon!

And the local barbers - client - no mask (haircut not a shave), barber with his nose hanging out.

Backs up my plan of not going to the shops for a while yet, until it settles down. Do people never learn - this is what is likely to have us locked down over the summer until the vaccine roll out is completed.

I was at the hospital having a gastroscopy yesterday and one of the staff there commented they were only just back to normal capacity, I think they'd been on emergency-only. Another member of staff commented about the next wave coming and that they'd forecast the last one and they can see the next one coming. Looks like it's inevitable, and I don't mean it's inevitable because the virus exists and how it spreads, I mean because people are stupid and don't learn.

Based on past year or so, we have a couple of months (maybe more since the immunity in some of the population may slow it slightly) before it starts to snowball again unless people start acting sensibly (not been seen yet during this pandemic). So will it be cJune we'll see the figures mean hospitals have to shift back to emergency-only and COVID then a month or two later the government will reluctantly go for a lock-down having tried weaker measures before hand?

The Governments plan is that the vaccines will keep deaths to "acceptable" levels and then allow it to run. The problem is the vaccine roll out has not been completed yet, yet everyone is acting as though it has.

Just shows that when the vaccine roll out is complete there will be a massive part of the population who will completely disregard any thoughts of allowing people to maintain personal space or take any other precautions should they wish to.

I see a fantastic opportunity, hats that dispense liquid (water, maybe water with nasty scent, or worse if the wearer so chooses) in small droplets up to 1.5m from the wearer. 

Or

Personal electrified fence, wear some sort of ring that's electrified enough to cause discomfort but non-lethal to anybody close enough to touch it.

I think the Government has done their bit to get new cases and deaths down through restrictions and vaccine roll out etc.  It's now up to us to be responsible as the restrictions are lifted to try and prevent further lockdowns and restrictions as much as we can.  We need to find that happy medium between socialising and entertaining our selves but also taking appropriate measures to reduce risk of spreading COVID.

I'd don't really understand people queuing up for non essential shops to open or cramming into pub gardens at midnight for a pint.  I'm hoping its short term thing and now they've got it out their system its not a regular occurrence. But if its like this everyday with little respect for distancing then I can see another lockdown happening.

Owch! My commiserations. Had 2 from each end. Wendy did 3 years on that team. So happy she was off the day I went in. Some things spoil the "Mystique" of marriage.

@Kimbers Could we please have Wendy's view on whether any such "Mystique" ...

1) Still exists

2) Existed until 

3) Existed past the first time you needed to be reminded of her birthday/ wedding anniversary day/ which year of the wedding anniversary it is.

Strangely enough

1. Yes. We aren't the couple who sit and talk while one has a bath or sits on the loo. The only time she has had to help me with bodily functions was when I had Cancer and a Catheter in.

2. Still does

3. Never forgotten.

So NYAHHHHHHH!

I've never been into a Primark shop but good on them, nice to see some corporates behaving in a responsible manner and I will look into what they sell - good behaviour like this should be rewarded with custom where we can.  Those who behave like shits we should embargo. Hopefully they sell wine!

The government can take a flying f&*k at a rolling doughnut now. How much longer do they want folks to place their lives on hold?

With UK vaccinations going so well, the risk of overloading the NHS should be largely negated? Thus even if we see a rise in ‘cases’ connected to the Europe situation, significant hospitalisations and deaths should be avoided. Deaths a couple of days ago were reported as 10. No context given by the media of course but surely more people are dying each day now for much more ‘routine’ reasons?

If the NHS was the justification for the lockdowns we should not see the same restrictions as before.

As Barry says, at some point we have to get on and start living and coping with this before the world/economy/mental health drops irrevocably off a cliff...

That is on the assumption of the vaccine protection staying for a decent period. Watch this space I’d suggest.
