They also tried to shut down a party in Scotland I think? Party noises were reported woman dancing with a cat turns out it was a zoom party everyone getting pissed together just in there own homes

Not everyone is being stupid

25 March and 7 April
13 days (or 14 days)
666 parties

~50 parties/day
in a population of what... 2.8 million people?
Maybe 1 million households?
So 50 households/day among 1 million households

but tbf, those are only the ones who got caught.
So assume 3 got away with it or 0.02% flouters.

That is AMAZING level of compliance with the rules, then.

They said they had 660 REPORTS of parties not that they attended/shut down that many.

660 reports.
Imagine if the majority of people agreed with reporting this stupidity.
Amazingly some posters on MN have said people should just ignore this dangerous behaviour and not report it.

Yes Greater Manchester is a county, but that's not the point is it.
660 reports of parties over one weekend is still a heck of a lot.

Doesn’t surprise me .

It actually said they had to break up over 660 parties. Parties, some with DJs and bloody bouncy castles.

Legal action taken against Chorley man who held house parties during lock down.

Near where I live

Given the amount of curtain twitching & 'shall I report' threads on MN, I'm amazed the Manch police only had 500 call outs/day.

It's not one weekend, I think? I read OP's link, it's a 13-14 day period.

Don't these people watch the news???
Its fu****g terrifying.

gingerandsmall Thu 09-Apr-20 22:09:34

Our neighbors had a party last week. One of the people who attended died from covid today and they're saying how much of a shock it is. Some people never fail to amaze me

Casino218 Thu 09-Apr-20 22:10:41

They call it Madchester for a reason.

Please do not use the phrase curtain twitcher.
The phrase to use is responsible person.

cologne4711 Fri 10-Apr-20 08:06:36

I find the 660 number highly unlikely. Are there even 660 police in Manchester?

Until this started, they were always saying how they had no (wo)manpower or resources, and now they've got the resources to go to 660 different houses in one day?

Please do not use the phrase curtain twitcher. The phrase to use is responsible person ha ha

It's Greater Manchester, and there are 7300 constables in GMP.
