These pages all seem to have been about how the rules make no sense, there's no point while schools are open and people saying they'll assess their own risk but they're not going to risk their MH etc etc

Will this make a difference? It Doesn't matter what the rules are if no one follows them.

We'll comply as we have been doing the whole time, as has everyone I know in real life 🤷🏻‍♀️

I imagine you would be fined if you don’t comply?

I'll third that @wheresmymojo and @ginberry4

I'll be complying yes - I'm not wasting another full lockdown which will affect so many lives negatively just to prove a point. If we lockdown it has to be worth it.

Will comply, nothing will be open.

Kids still at school so our risk still as high as it gets.

Of course!!

With the possibility that there may be 4000 dead a day in December sad

Who wouldn't ?

I had been prepared to comply with everything apart from losing my support bubble. I would have gladly risked a fine for that. Thankfully I don't have to, as they are still permitted.

Ove complied all through too butbthere have literally been 100s of posts here in the last few days of people saying they'll be having Christmas with family regardless, or there's no point stopping their kids mixing when they're going to school etc

I will comply, schools are staying open which was my main concern so I can deal with anything else.

RaininSummer Sat 31-Oct-20 20:25:19

I will definitely comply as I have all along but schools staying open fully seems a big mistake.

*primark!

Lifeispassingby Sat 31-Oct-20 20:27:01

We have complied all along and will continue to do so despite many people I see everyday ignoring the rules

PollyPelargonium52 Sat 31-Oct-20 20:27:03

I agree Waxwaxoff. Waves to you as you live local to me I do recall! I can work uninterrupted and no grumpy teenager at home ...

Qasd Sat 31-Oct-20 20:28:19

Yes because it’s the law but I don’t even remotely think it will work this time which is the big difference and I would assume many (even most) people think the same?

AuntyPonsonby Sat 31-Oct-20 20:29:03

We've tended to exercise, errr ... "discretion" shall we say, and we'll continue I think.

I'm guessing there's a reason why those who are more law-abiding think everyone they know is. Our non-abiding friends tend to only discuss this with other non-abiding friends!

CoffeeChouxBun Sat 31-Oct-20 20:29:08

Yes will comply - but really upset gyms and pools closing again.

And me too

I wont comply fully. I live in a houseshare with strangers so cant form a support bubble but also cant see anyone i actually know, including my boyfriend. I just cant do it anymore, especially as i am a key worker and need to see someone i know to decompress as i work alone so cant chat to colleague's . Maybe you guys above think im wrong and selfish but complete isolation from anyone you know outside from 2m apart only is very very hard.

BlackPetunia Sat 31-Oct-20 20:31:59

@user1471588124 not as hard as being dead!! why dont you just comply?
selfish!

He's also closed pubs and all non-essential shops, and banned household mixing, and told us not to leave home apart from for essential reasons.

nancybotwinbloom Sat 31-Oct-20 20:33:51

Yes I will still comply.

Liverpool have been slagged out in the news recently but everyone I know is complying.

Not one trick or treater tonight.

What other choice is there?!
