Plan B, aka what anyone who is able to do is probably doing already, namely WFH.

@ElectraBlue

I am done.

I am no longer listening to these clowns or following any further restrictions.

Had my 3 vaccines, will keep sanitised my hands but I no longer believe a single word that Johnson says.

We have to live with this virus. Lockdowns don't work, the economy can't sustain any more lockdowns.

Enough of this joke. There is still no evidence that the new variant is in any way more deadly, just the opposite in fact.

Another one that agrees.

My December will go ahead as normal.

Yeah I’m done with all this now


We need a way of opting out of life like we can do with our pets when suffering becomes too much.

Remember your actions can harm others. I know the Government don’t care about other people but I don’t want to stoop to their level.

If cases are rising it’s going to impact anyone who needs hospital treatment not just COVID patients. Not just because we don’t have the beds but staff will be off sick. I’m not going to stick two fingers at the Government and risk my elderly mum’s health. More cases will mean visiting restrictions in care homes, something else I wouldn’t want.

Boris can do one but unfortunately COVID isn’t going away and we need to keep cases at a reasonable level so we can live with it, but we are not there yet

He needs to deflect attention away from partygate urgently. Anything will do really. Funny how we have a new variant just before Christmas. I'm not one for conspiracy theories but I don't trust this lot.

Work from home and covid passes. It's not a catastrophe. No one will pay attention to household limits so that's a no go. Not schools yet.

Covid passports are a two their society so yes it is a catastrophe.

I hope those of you who fought against low-level measures over the summer and autumn are happy.

Enjoy your last minute Zoom Christmases.

Work from home with no furlough schemes for affected business (like shops, cafes, etc that rely on commuters) will put people out of work.

amazing that you've managed to get hold of this evidence. Could you post it here for us all to see? The actual evidence?

@PicsInRed

Will they leave schools alone do we think?

Of course they will. Things would have to be dire before schools are affected. It will be Plan B. WFH, mask mandates and Covid passports.

MIL is coming to us for Christmas no matter what. She's 97. She can't spend a second Christmas alone.

I remember when they left pubs open but schools had to close that was the worst bit for me.
Clubs and pubs to close before schools anyway!!

I'm done too. Nothing that's been leaked tonight will have any real impact, it's just a way of getting his Christmas party off the front pages. If people can work from home they already are. If people were going to cancel Christmas parties etc, they already have. Only other logic behind tonight is that things are about to get worse and this is his shot over the bows.

Neh, obviously he can close where ever he likes which will stop me going for meals and the pub but I'm not staying away from friends and family. I've had enough of that

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.
