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

Seems odd to do one of the serious table thumping speeches if he isn't actually saying all that much. Is it just to avoid the press?

To give the illusion of leadership?

Is this 10pm curfew really gonna stop covid?

The only good thing I would say is that establishments are now restricted to table service only, which restricts people moving around between tables, which is a lot better. Prevents crowding round bars in pubs too. Should have been this way since July i don’t know why this is only a thing now.

It has been like that at every pub I've been to you're not allowed to go to the bar. Although I only ever went to them for a meal.

When I went to Great Yarmouth it was walk up to the bar and order and no table service at all. Also there’s a local restaurant which is really safe near me (staff in masks, cleaning, sanitiser, screens, tables spaced) where you can order on a QR code or go up to the counter.

I was also in a hotel bar today which was order at the bar so it feels like it will make a lot of difference in my head.

A lot of places are open until later like midnight on weekends. And I think its probably better overall as on weekdays, people are working until 5.00 so less drinking time

Maybe it’s just me, I don’t really go out that much. I didn’t realise people work and then go straight to drink...

Lol I literally live in a different world from some people. I work go home and eat some food and have a rest 😂

Confirmed Boris will address the nation at 8PM tomorrow, unlikely to be any different to his speech in the commons 

Another pre-recorded speech apparently. Inspiring.

Saw some comments earlier about masks and thought i'd share an update / observation on the change in Wellington NZ.

Overnight we went from level 2 to level 1 and so masks are no longer a requirement on public transport and this morning the number being worn has dropped to maybe 10-20% of passengers when at 100% just yesterday.  I thought people might have become used to wearing them and it would take longer to drop away. It's difficult in this area as there is no suggestion of any cases around, but it does feel nice to have a mask on when in a confined space just for peace of mind.

You've been to a few comedy gigs, right? What sort of stuff are they doing? Carrying on with stuff from their last tours, or is it all Covid and lock down stuff? Even if anyone was coming up here (and there was anywhere for them to perform) I don't think I could be arsed with constant covid stuff. It'd be worse than when everyone started doing dead dad shows

Bit of a mixed bag really I guess. Sunday was a good example. Compere tried to riff with the crowd and wasn't funny. Nathon Caton was all fairly hack (I guess) observational stuff about being in lockdown with your partner (I did find it funny though). And Milton Jones (if you're not aware) just does a stream of quick puns, so the same act as pre-Covid.

One annoying change is it all feels a bit rushed now as they often don't have intervals. I quite like at comedy, particularly on a Sunday night, settling in with a bottle of wine for the night and building the evening up. Whereas generally now they all just come on back to back and you're done in an hour.

@zahidfmay have more to offer than me on all this.

I found it the same tbh. Kevin bridges and Phil wang did post lockdown stuff. Aisling bea pre lockdown stuff. It is a bit more rushed but I generally don't like stuff lasting too long!

Anyone watching Panorama ?

Just read something about this. Was it about money laundering? May have to watch. Were Deutsche Bank involved by any change? I understand they are the money launderer's vehicle of choice and have seen them described as 'a Nazi bank'!

You've managed to catch some good comedians there! Where were they? Not sure how I missed all those!
