All available evidence suggests that the vast majority of people are sticking to the rules, and surveys show that the majority of people are supportive of stronger measures to suppress the virus. I'd suggest it's very much in the government's interests for us all to be thinking as you are and blaming each other instead of looking at their failings. The facts just don't support it though.Gordon ,I dont agree politically at all with the tories but to bring politics into this situation is wrong, would any other party knowing what they knew then and not with the hindsight they have now ,have done things any differently. Everybody agrees christmas relaxation was wrong but the govt. didnt say you must go and mingle at christmas common fuckin sense told most of us not to. The virus is spreading and the govt have undoubtedly made mistakes but the govt didnt organise a Jewish wedding with 400 guests, the govt didnt organise baby showers , the govt didnt organise groups of youths walking round at night sharing fags and drink( where are their parents), the govt doesnt organise the house parties that are STILL fuckin going on, the people have to take responsibility for their own actions. Putting people who arrive in the uk into compulsory quarantine should have been done at the start but wait till people start squawking about their human rights now it's being done. When there's the slightest relaxation people swan off abroad on holiday and then moan like fuck when they get back that they weren't given enough warning about having to self isolate when they get home, fuckin idiots. Why go in the middle of a pandemic? It's because of ignorant *&*^ like all of the above that the only time I get out is to take ma dug for a walk and my locals shut and I cannae come up for a game tae see my pals, including your good self. Aye, the govt have made mistakes,big ones, but it's the self entitled arsewholes who think the rules dont apply to them that are spreading it . Rant over. Stay safe everybody.
Why is the current lockdown less stringent than the first one when the virus is currently more transmissible? Ask the government. Why is there still no proper support for people with the virus to isolate, when studies show that only 20% of people with a positive test are isolating? Ask the government, maybe also ask them why they spunked £22 bn on test and trace with their pals when that whole programme is utterly pointless if the isolation part isn't working. Why are borders still essentially open? Ask the government. Why are so many millions of people still having to go to work and spread the virus? Ask the government. Why did we encourage people back in to pubs in August where they could be served by a chancellor who wasn't even wearing a fecking mask? Why did we encourage people to go on their holidays and as a result end up going from having almost eliminated the virus in July, to ending up with 80% of cases being traceable back to Spain by September. Ask the government - all of these things come from people following the rules they put in place. It's the rules that are wrong, not the people.
