Pub & Restaurant Curfew 10pm

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-54242634

8pm, 10pm, 2am whats the difference? It’s either safe or it isn’t.

Anyone think these absurd new measures are going to help? They seen a bit desperate and pointless.

I’m getting to the point where I think we either need to lockdown completely or open up completely.

And for God sake get this trace and test system working.

Kleberson is obviously Stretty, the dopey mug can’t even hide his style of writing properly.

Ahhh ok, explains everything.

Why would a legend of the site want to hide his style?

Thought his style might at least have evolved naturally?

Actually - scratch that.

Had the test yesterday, got the results earlier today and we're both clear.
Off to Egypt in the morning

Enjoy. I went to Italy and Denmark in August and in many ways, there's no better time to do it.

Planes are half full, and tourist places are less crowded, I literally walked into the Collesuem and on the rides in a theme park which is unheard off in "normal" times.

For me, the Covid-19 crisis has been an interesting study in human behaviour and attitudes.

Do I believe the UK government is incompetent? Of course. Dishonest and self-serving? Absolutely. But only this morning I saw someone saying that Matt Hancock was "grinning" on a breakfast show while hinting that pubs may close/close early. The woman who said this was convinced that his goal, and the government's goal, was to "take away our fun".

It's something I've noticed a lot about people, and especially in the last four or five years - an unwillingness or inability to accept that there is such a thing as "reality", something that is as real and complex as you are and exists independently of you. I wonder if we've swallowed so much "positivity" in recent years that people genuinely believe you can change more than you really can just by thinking about it differently.

Problems like climate change and Brexit are a case in point: it's easy to be dismissive of the issues because they don't affect us yet. They are either in the post or, if they're already happening, they're happening somewhere else and we don't have to look at them.

But with Covid-19, it's different. Even if you have not had it, don't know anybody who's had it and genuinely believe it's exaggerated or even invented, it's impossible not to have been affected. The whole structure and fabric of daily life has been altered for the foreseeable future.

I genuinely fear that some people can't handle the fact that their determination to "just carry on as normal" and "not do what they tell me" hasn't actually changed the daily reality, hasn't brought back the good times. That's why all these conspiracy theories are rife: people want to lash out, but there's no point lashing out at the "reality" of the virus because that's like getting angry with the weather.
