When will this shit end?


Recommended Posts

As someone who works in hospitality, I have no idea how any bar is still operating in a Tier2/3 area. Since the 10pm and table service rules came in our weekly take has halved, which is completely unsustainable. Expect a lot of independents to close in the coming weeks!

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

That’s the point though- the deficit will go right back down the next year as they won’t have to pay for furlough. So none of these one off, emergency coronavirus measures will have much impact on the deficit at all. That’s why they’re not a big issue compared to any sort of ongoing funding.

That was never actually in law anyway. The once a day was guidance, the one hour was just some interpretation.

It’s a weird place- likely lasted this long as people don’t tend to go out in the city Centre at night anyway, so it’s a bit more dispersed. But with the unis back is probably inevitable.

Coventry is at 150 cases per 100k, in a population or 425k. It's numbers were fairly high at times during the initial phases of the pandemic back in March and April. It was a surprise its moved up a Tier yesterday - but then again they needed to moved somewhere into Tier Two from Tier One to see if Tier Two does anything. 

I keep an eye on Coventry as it's where I was brought up, and where my family and school friends still live.

Albert's Schloss is having you order your drinks in advance with your meal. 

So £12 meal and drink, £16 for two drinks, £20 for meal and 3 drinks. 

This is why tier 3 is ridiculous, everyone is finding ways around it. Don't know of many places actually closing. 

Going to have to eat a lot of food to be able to get a good skin full.

My area has moved up to an infection rate of 134.3 per 100,000.
My ward MP (Labour in a Conservative borough) is saying we should prepare to move up from Tier Three to Tier Two. What do you reckon are the chances?

I emailed my local MP last night to express my disgust at her voting against Free School Meals (the MP for my weekday address as that’s where I’m registered to vote). If anyone would like me to post my email, please let me know. 
 

I have woken up angry today.

Dishi Rishi going to offer something more generous today that will definitely not be called furlough and will definitely not be for something called a lockdown?

And definitely has nothing to do with rising cases in London.

I sent mine a few strongly worded Tweets that included #ToryScum and then couldn’t sleep because I’d got all worked up and angry. 

Imagine being a human who voted against giving poor hungry kids food during the winter, during a pandemic, during a national crisis. 

Actual shitbags.

Looks like this country likes to see kids going hungry then? Or haven’t liked Burnham looking out for the poorest people?

This was from last weekend, probably a bounce from the Brexit talks being put on hold. Savants does also tend to be more Tory I think.

Just seen an interesting comment about the free school meals thing. 
 

The Tories will obviously do a U-Turn on this just before Christmas just so they can be seen as the good guys but they’ll also probably outsource the free school meals to another brand new company with no prior experience for a few hundred million quid.

I think you'll more likely move up from Tier2 to Tier3.

Boris dressed up as a comically bad Santa? ‘Ho-Ho-Ho’ is their new slogan for December?

I was thinking about this the other day and in the 80's or 90's just the shit Boris has done in his private life would have made sure he never got to hold the office he now holds. It seems like people got sacked for what now seems likes tiny things and now you hear every day about corruption on a ridiculous scale and nothing is done about it. I spend so much time angry at a government that just isn't held to account anymore. Why and how have things changed so much??

So, Tier2 areas to get more funding...but at same time Manchester and other areas have effectively been in Tier2 since the summer.

But London is in tier  2 now.  Shit is serious

Sorry, I got confused there. We’re in Tier 1 (medium) at the moment. Will we go up to Tier 2 (high)?

Still think they got the numbering of the tiers the wrong way round 😉

You may well do...will depend on a few factors, numbers of cases, infection rate, population density etc.

I find up somewhat ironic that people in pubs are being made to buy meals they don't want yet the government is refusing to pay for meals which children need. 

Couldn’t that sum up Capitalism quite nicely?
