I would embed the tweet (although don't know how to!) From Guardian north of England correspondent Josh Halliday: New: I'm told that 'food-based pubs' such as Wetherspoons will be allowed to stay open in Merseyside while pubs and bars that don't "substantially" serve food will have to close later this week.

You just click on tweet, then copy and paste in url....like so.

I think on a music festival message board it’s a legitimate question to ask. It doesn’t suggest the OP doesn’t give a shit about anything else. Of course there are much bigger things to be worrie

I can’t get the following thought out of my head and it’s making the old bottom lip wobble: Wednesday evening at the 2021 festival, the sun has been out all day but temperature not stifling, perf

Howdy folks...sorry I'm late to the party! Was in a meeting and could see notifications coming up! So, looks very promising indeed. The vaccinated group not only didn't develop severe disease, bu

omg this is a nightmare. what is actually going to change today?

Aside from just grinding any pub that didn't have the foresight to serve pub lunch into financial dust.

This is ridiculous. We need to stop the rate of infection now, we need to curb it instantly in places like Merseyside, Liverpool, Manchester. But obviously when given the choice local MPs will opt to close as little as possible, but what is closing a few pubs and suggesting people dont travel gonna do. It sure ain't gonna 

and that's the most severe tier. It is so clear the government will do anything to avoid having to give more financial support. But all this time last week and this week has now been wasted. Even though everyone expert is calling it a crucial turning point. 

Yet again we've been given umbrellas to stop a hurricane.

Glastonbury isn't on until 2022.

 

Sorry, I don't want to panic anyone thinking it's been confirmed that it's moving again, but let's be realistic, we won't get society back to normal in the time we have left. 2022 is on, but next year looks very unlikely at the moment.

Sadly I have to agree with you.

I'll add that just about everyone I know that that are involved with the festival to a greater or lesser extent think the same.

I was working with someone last week who works closely with one of the festival's big cheeses and they said "No f***ing chance although Michael is admant that it's on" Those were his exact words.

We can but hope....and if it is on, what a party it will be.

Maybe the best way of dealing with this is a change of Government? Seems pretty obvious to me the current Government are an absolute shambles. 

I think my post from earlier on remains pretty accurate given that update 😆

Spoons boycott again coming up. 
 

The food there is inedible anyway 

The people from all the other pubs forced to shut should picket them ..... they have unfortunately caused the death of many small pubs and will now be supported and potentially even more busy because of an artificial monopoly created by this government ....

It's been hellish for all the NHS front line every day since March; it's just the varying degrees. Mrs L is sick of all the deaths and wearing PPE all the time. So much so she can't sleep before a shift due to worry of what she will be facing. Take last week for instance, she was presented with a 40 something covid admission at 3 who was wheeled out to the morgue at 7 😢

It sounds brutal - things were already tough for nhs staff before the pandemic due to the ongoing underfunding and target pressures etc, I do worry about the long term toll this is all taking on them

Was really keen on having a few weeks(+) off work; was gonna get comfy and finally read the Iliad, plus do some online courses. Not happy with the news about Spoons staying open

Finally reading the Illiad has been one of my aims for this year. I just keep getting to a big list of ships and find my interest waning, but I'm still determined I'll crack it some day.

Let's do it!  Not like there's much else to do these days haha. Efests book club? 🤓

 

I've been wanting to get into the classics for a while tbh. Greek, Roman, Egyptian, etc

Same as Ireland isnt it? supposed to stop excessive drinking ( in theory)

Republic of Ireland is only allowing takeaway service/outdoor eating drinking.

Northern Ireland has no restrictions on bars at the minute except the 10.30pm last order/out by 11pm curfew.

Yeah none of the "what about mental health" folk ever seem bothered about the mental health of doctors and nurses...

no it isn't. Just do same as last year where have teacher assessed and coursework based results. If more students getting better marks then normal so be it...these year groups have had enough shit as it is.

The problem is there won't have been end of year mocks to base this on, and they are so far behind that Feb/Mar is probably too early for new mocks. And teacher assessment is harder to do when face to face teaching has been limited.

I don't think anyone thinks that the extra three weeks is enough to catch up on everything, but it's better than nothing. It's three weeks' more work that can be covered.

So...Manchester restrictions not changing at all? Have I got that right? That's kind of amazing.

Only difference I think is that it will become illegal to socialise outwith your household in any indoor environment including hospitality, but conversely, mixing in gardens will become legal.

Ah right. No one in Manchester has gardens.

As somebody who lives in the ‘Liverpool City Region’ (although I technically don’t really but that’s for another day), I’m angry that we are being grouped in with the Tier 3 restrictions even though we are in the 300’s per 100k. Granted it’s still too high and action is taken, but if Manchester is avoiding it for now with much higher figures then I don’t really see how it fair? There are going to be many instances of this as we move forward - with the dominant cities impacting the surrounding towns.

I love fireworks night 🥺

 

I used to, but now I'm a grumpy old man, and a dog owner, so they feck me off.

Actually...I like them, but round my way they get let off late at night for weeks before and after.

Blame Andy Burnham and others from Manc council....looks like govt caved in to their demands.

I think it’s because your mayor has folded over and let the government shaft him whereas Manchester council have stuck up for the city and refused to agree to a lockdown

I mean the other way to look at it is to be overjoyed the government are taking action to stop deaths in your area and not just letting people die like in Manchester.
