But in Scotland infection rates appear to be rising, according to Office for National Statistics data.
I'm in tier 3 because the wider geographic area has large concentrations of people of Pakistani origin. Next to no cases in the area I live in. Where is the economic or medical sense in this? Removed

My message to brits from China (where I can see how they deal with COVID effectively and efficiently) IS

ALL of you, STAY at your terraced houses and DO NOT go out unless you desperately need food or toilet rolls

THROUGHOUT the Christmas

OR

Lockdown 3 will be issued as soon as Christmas ends
Seriously....you give the disease to the world....and mock ?

You people are scum.

You've just heard how badly the economy's been damaged by the lockdowns. And you still want more of them. Just how desperate are you to f**k things up for the next generation? Removed

He's probably a pensioner who sat with his tin hat and sh!ting himself in case he gets the virus or one of the ignoramuses that has been furloughed since March and thinks it's all one big holiday paid at the expenses of the British tax payer, i.e. you and me.

We need to sack Whitty & Vallance and make the sensible decision to get the country back to normal whilst protecting those most vulnerable.

Summer , you cant mix indoors but can eat out.
Apparently because covid knows when you mix.Pubs are safe.
Winter/ Christmas, you can mix indoors but cant eat out.
Apparently because covid knows its Christmas. Pubs are dangerous.
This is not about public health or well being otherwise we would be in full lockdown.

I didn't hear it in the announcement but can I now assume it's perfectly legal to punch anyone in the face who isn't wearing a mask whenn they should? I couldn't give a rat's *** whether they are effective or not - people who don't wear them will not be observing any other guidance and are directly responsible for the situation we're in.

We've reach the limits. Being an island we should have followed Taiwan and New Zealand. Locking down hard and fast and making sure any and all travellers into the country are isolated for 14 days.

But we didn't because gammons be all "oh my rights!"....the 50k that died where were their rights?
We left our airports and ports open during which time 18 million people came and went without any testing or tracking.
That was Patel's dept. but she was on a beach in Dover trying to drown refugees.

People in the North get what they vote for. You can't vote for the Conservatives and then complain about them profusely, and expect everyone else to be sympathetic. Whatever happened to individual responsibility?

If you don't like it then you shouldn't have voted Conservative.

Given large numbers of the intellectually challenged will be getting together over Xmas to celebrate with their nearest and dearest it will at least give them the opportunity to say a last goodbye face to face with granny and grandad.

They say patience is a virtue it's notably absent from the populace at large given a vaccine is not too far away and potentially a game changer for Easter. Shame.

The current highest rated comment, is by TommyGunn who feels the 'total number of infections is meaningless - with the profile of the people catching it which is important'. I could only smile. Ho hum.

There is an idiot moron from hell driving a souped up little white box of a car with broken exhaust and amplifying mufflers, over Drayton Green bridge on Drayton Bridge Rd. The driver must die!

We need a new vaccine

One that vaccinates people falling for Johnson's lies

After his all too predictable mishandling of the epidemic we are in a far, far worse position than similar countries

Yet far from leadership he continues to resort to tactics of hatred and division to meet his own ambitions for power

When Covid ends we need to Tory party to bring the grim era of Johnson to an end to

And for many of us, the "lockdown" is not over.

I appreciate many will want the overly cautious approach, but many like myself, simply can not continue to live under constant illogical restrictions.

All that seems to change is the message or the terminology, but the net result is always the same, BEING TOLD WHAT I CAN NOT DO BY A BUNCH OF BUMBLING IDIOTS TIME AND TIME AGAIN.
What a selfish attitude. The restrictions are there for the protection of you AND OTHERS from a dangerous virus until the vaccine is available for everyone. Just think who the bumbling idiot really is! Removed

It is evident from what we see in the press and on TV that many people are either too stupid or ignorant to take sensible precautions against getting or passing on the infection by following the basic rules of face protection and 2m distancing.

In the words of Martin Niemoller:

First they came for the Jews, but I did nothing because I'm not a Jew. Then they came for the socialists, but I did nothing because I'm not a socialist. Then they came for the Catholics, but I did nothing because I'm not a Catholic. Finally, they came for me, but by then there was no one left to help me.

Why wait until it effects you. Protest tomorrow
