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

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

Enough of this shit.

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.

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.

What’s plan B?
Working from home?

I wonder if it will be back to isolating as a close contact regardless of vaccine status?

Who wants a lockdown? Well, one or two posters on here have been gagging for one for months. Christmas came early for them with the Omicron variant.

I don’t care if Boris had a party. Hypocritical, of course, but even if he’d have had ten parties I wouldn’t have had one. Boris and the govt are not responsible nor do they have any effect on the virus. It is a worldwide problem. It is so terrible that I think that people focus on some small domestic shit to avoid facing the fact that this whole thing is disastrous. For all we know Putin or Macron or Biden or Trump had parties. It just doesn’t make any difference.

Working from home has never stopped so must be more than that

Work from home if you can

Masks extended

Nhs covid pass mandatory for certain large events

Boosters not needed

LFT sufficient for covid pass

boosters not needed for covid pass-two jabs sufficient

@EnnAndJay only caring about others when it comes to Covid is not "caring about others."

Just said daily contact testing instead of isolation for omicron

No one will pay any mind to restrictions that Boris puts in place. He does not expect himself or his cronies to follow the rules, so no one else will feel obligated.

EnnandJay I care about others. Like my colleagues in the hospitality and tourism industries who have seen their businesses decimated. I've seen the toll on their emotional health and the worry over finances. I care very deeply.

No one wants this to be happening. The fact some of it can be seen coming doesn't mean it is welcome. Omicron is a really shit development. Plan B potentially isn't close to enough.
