@Cyrilgoggin

But why would anyone want a lockdown? Don't people want to live normal lives any more?

Some restrictions are inevitable but no-one in their right minds could possibly support a lockdown and the emotional and financial fallout it would bring. It would be madness and I genuinely can't understand why anyone would actively want it.

Because we care about others.

I live in wales and our large office is open and we are all expected in. It’s guidance not law and our managers are ignoring it as are many other places I know.

@wincarwoo

They need to up the capacity of hospitals to deal with it. And force vaccines.

Enough of this shit.

How? Hmm

@PrincessNutNuts That's why I predict Christmas Eve - the sweet spot between shopping and mixing.

@Roundeartheratchriatmas

I took no notice of the useless lump last year and don’t intend to this year.

And then we wonder why we're still in the thick of it.

@Cyrilgoggin

Surely there can't be anyone who wants a lockdown?

You haven't seen the YouGov polling?

@musicalfrog

They can't afford any more furlough so guessing they won't close shops and hospitality this time 🤞

They won't close retail and hospitality because this is their peak time of the year. After Christmas though...

@MarshaBradyo

The sad truth is, if we'd have introduced low-level measures (SD, Rule of Six) in the Autumn, there'd probably be no need for another Lockdown.

No any move is due to new variant. Hospitalisation steady without that.

Regardless of Omicron, cases are sky high (and have been for yonks), and hospitalisations are a good deal over the threshold set by the government for the introduction of new restrictions.

“There was no party, I repeat there was no party, honest. But just in casethere actually was a party not that I was invited or knew anything about it, I have appointed an independent and very good friend of my wife to oversee a huge wide ranging investigation, with full access to the Number 10recycling bins, and we will of course inform you of the results of the enquiry sometime next year when you have hopefully forgotten all about it. And I have personally taken that woman off our Christmas card list because that is the sort of decisive action that has made me the PM I am. Now over to you Chris ....”

@BiscuitLover3679

But plan B is basically nothing? The people who want to wear masks and can swing working from home.. do! Those who don't want to will get around it. 🤷‍♀️ All pointless.

Yep.

Kicking the fucking can down the road.

Give it a couple of weeks and Joe Public will be crying out for Lockdown, so why not get ahead of the curve?
