It worries me we are opening up fully with only 60 odd % of people fully vaccinated. I don't know why Johnson framed it as 'now or not at all this year' when if we wait just a bit more we'll have pretty much every adult fully vaccinated and as the vaccines are so good that will mean any risk to hospitals and severe illness is so much lower. So whilst it would be Autumn we would have a fully vaccinated population to combat that and enable us to properly open up at that stage.

Because the pressures on the hospital I'm autumn would be more so the NHS would be at risk

Now, even if hospitalisations go up, it'd be manageable.

Hospitalisations have the potential to go up more now with less people fully vaccinated which in-turn would have a knock on effect to the Autumn. We have a chance to prevent that and open up with a fully vaccinated population, which would be much less of a risk.

I just think it’s so bizarre to outright reject it and be kinda aggressive about it. It just stinks of insecure management that refuse to trust their employees or treat them like adults.

I’ve worked in environments that could be seen as toxic, and this is always the case. Irrational fears that your employees can’t be trusted without your supervision, to be point where the boss won’t even take a holiday.

Yep. Also ties into the absolutely poisonous long hours culture rife in those sectors where people brag about working 90 hours plus a week as if it’s something to be proud of, instead of a recipe for stress, unhappiness and an early grave. 

Wasn’t it Goldman or one of the banks that recently made a big deal about not making employees work on both Saturday and Sunday, like they were god’s gift to employee wellbeing? FFS.

IMO a lot of the CEOs making loud noises about rejecting flexible working see it like they did their time and suffered the misery of it all, so they’ll be damned if any of their employees now get an easier ride. Instead of having a bit of compassion and emotional intelligence to create a healthier working environment.

Come off it mate. No one has that many breaks! It's simply when your boss isn't in the same room as you can do more of what you want on your computer.

No-one works 100% focused all day in the office either. You chat to colleagues about all sorts in the office. I think for many this forum is the substitute for that.

End of the day bosses don't care as long as the work gets done. 

Or maybe it's just relief from some on here who don't actually do anything productive that they can go back to being seen to be in the office so no-one will start questioning what they actually deliver! 😄

We already delayed once when we probably didn't have to. The same people asking for more time to vaccinate all the adults would the  switch to asking for more time for the kids and then after winter.

 

If we have this hospitalisation and death rate last March, we would never have had these stupid restrictions.

Yeah extremely progressive working from home policy where employees can work from home two days a week….. on the weekends…

Then again, the culture of GS is a “pump out” model. They know that a lot of the people that work there will tap out after a few years and a whole set of fresh new graduates will be excited to join.

only a slither of people make it beyond 5+ years, and usually those move on before they get too expensive to keep hired.

Vallance and Witty disagree with you.

I know it's only my view but I would think we need to get the adults vaccinated, I'm not thinking about getting the kids done. It might not ultra cautious what I'm saying but in my mind it feels like the logical thing to do especially we are fairly close to all adults have 2 doses.

That's already moving the goalposts from all the vulnerable being protected.

Every single country in the world which hasn't closed their borders (like Oz and NZ) will be doing the same as the UK as soon as they to the same death/hospitalisation stage. I certainly don't think we are massively different to most countries in the scheme of things.

Well fair enough if you always thought that. I didn't agree to the principle of restrictions until all adults were double jabbed.

Personally, still think it's fucking reckless when 50% of the population are not fully vaccinated. This proper opening could have been pushed back to August once we had everyone done - but hey ho I guess.

Almost pre empting down votes from certain ividduals to this post.

Not going to downvote you. Just going to enjoy your faux outrage and tears. We are getting our freedom back in two weeks and there is absolutely nothing you lockdown loving weirdos can do about it. Pleasing 🙂

Those who haven't had two jabs are at such a low risk of complications - the way the cases are going were all going to end up catching it anyway might aswell get it over and done with.

Looking forward to ordering a pint at the bar, standing round with my pals not having to forward think about how many are going etc and plan the whole day/night bar by bar weeks in advance.

I'm sure the novelty will soon ware off and I’ll be back sat at the table ordering on my app but exciting times!

Feck me the Helen Lovejoy brigade are out in force tonight. Do other countries have so many absolute lockdown living arseholes in their population? 

Give it a rest please … I remember the respect people gave you when you struggled with lockdown … please have a think about those that might be struggling with the opening up phase which is equally as justifiable

Put those two threads together and you can see your future in Manchester it seems...

The burden that the hospitals are under in Manchester was extreme before Covid hit us. I have seen old people lay in corridors as there was no place to put them. Unfortunately I have been a regular at hospitals in Manchester over the last decade or so. The staff are utterly fantastic and literally saved my life a few times now. The conditions and workload they have to operate under is a disgrace.

That's great mate mate! Personally I'm bit on the other sound of things at the moment but I'm happy you are feeling excited about things!
