And also because Boris has decided to go for a completely different approach than what anyone else has, which means going for ‘hers immunity’ which a lot of reports are citing means needing 60% (40 million) of the population to contract the virus

 

His attitude is like when as a child your mate got chicken pox so your mum made you go round there for a play date so you’d get it.

I was talking about this with a friend earlier, it's like the Chickenpox parties.

But that’s actually not a bad way to approach it 

Exactly. Kids are resistant. Their immune systems are handling this much better than the older generations. 
 

The older generations and those of us with serious existing health conditions could be in for a rough time. I really don’t want to think about what could happen down the line.
 

Until we get to that point we have to keep positive.

Which to be fair, as much as I hate the guy, is what the medical professionals are telling him.

Same position.  Man's a collossal twat, but at least he's got the sense to follow advice from the experts rather than following an ideoligical position.  Now if they could just do the same with other policy like universal credit.

Not seen it brought up but Glasto should probably postpone balance payday/resale? Seems like more hassle than it's worth if they have to go through the faff/cost of processing payments, handling resale, only to have to refund? Safer to put it off until May until they know?

I’m actually in this mindset that the festival being cancelled this year might make 2021 a real interesting and exciting year.

I know it’s w*nk but imagine partying in the fields after this has all blown over!

Could also be a stacked lineup. I imagine plenty of acts for this year will return for the next, on top of the acts who are planning to tour in 2021.

Still think there's a chance for this year's though.

Feels like we’re clutching at straws here now. 

We clutched at straws so hard in the weather thread last year when everything pointed to a total mudbath and look how that turned out...

Has everyone given up? 
 

We’re in March, the festival is June. Yeah the virus isn’t going away but the world isn’t going to stop forever. 
 

We have a rough few weeks coming up. I don’t deny that however the virus is going to peak and things will start to get back to normal. 
 

Don’t let the fear beat you. 

Good attitude. There’s a lot of Panic setting in and while the next few weeks are going to be very rough (I’ve got several close family members in the high risk category) we’re going to need all our positivity and whatever humour we can muster. Getting hysterical is not going to help. Staying calm and considered and positive is.
