    Totalitarianism is when there is no private life. No escape from the State. When you are policed in your home and in your garden. When private & public gatherings are proscribed or restricted by government. This is Germany 1937, it is East Germany 1975. 70DD54F7-A96A-4CDD-AF27-221824C4C951.png

    Don't be ridiculous. There's virus spread in the North West and West Yorkshire due to selfish ***** mixing as if the virus is over. People with your attitude will cause it to happen here as well.

    At what levels as a percentage of population that isn’t infected would you declare the virus to be over?

    Certainly not when the prevalence is increasing.

    Are deaths and hospitalisations increasing?

    Who knows. They keep changing the counting methodology.

    So no then.

    At what point do you draw the line in the sand and say we’ve done the best we can time to live with it...

    I mean exactly what I say. The hospital admission figure is now 10 days behind, which isn't necessary seeing as they used to produce a daily figure for the briefings.

    Why do we always have to accept stuff like this in this country and just get on with it regardless of possibly thousands passing away?

    People are talking like we are past the worst now and we should just crack on and forget about those that are vulnerable to the virus when we know that previous pandemics have shown second spikes to be worse especially during colder months that are edging ever closer.

    We have been badly let down delaying the lockdown and not getting an effective track and trace app up and running but that doesn't mean we should just forget about the sacrifices we have all made and risk going back to square one.

    You were getting maungy about being restricted with dog walking at the height of the pandemic when a thousand per day were dying, so I'm hardly going to respect your opinion.

    Great work by the police fighting crime one child's Birthday at a time. When are people going to learn? It's just so selfish, these people should do something positive like going to a packed a restaurant between Monday and Wednesday and actually help out.

    I don’t think we will do a national lockdown unless the hospitals can’t cope and the deaths rise exponentially

    Fingers crossed we will cope the winter period and the vaccine is in place amongst the vulnerable by Christmas / early new year and we can put this horrendous year behind us and start rebuilding the economy

    You accept people passing every year that you don't support a countrywide lockdown, ban on socialising and enforced face masks to stop thousands from dying of flu though.

    Why are people suddenly taking the moral high ground? If someones mum dies is it less heartbreaking to hear she died of an entire influenza virus than a coronavirus? Do we just shrug and say 'ah that's life'?

    Eat out to wipe out (the elderly)


    Ironically one of the biggest supporters of lockdown on here has been going to pubs etc since they were allowed to whilst quite a few who were against a countrywide extended lockdown have avoided them

    Because flu isn't as contagious or as dangerous. I do wish you'd stop banging on about it.

    How many people does a disease or virus have to wipe out each year before you give a **** about the bodies in the ground?

    Almost 30,000 bodies prematurely put in the ground during the winter of 2014 in the UK. No lockdown, no masks, nothing. It's obviously contagious enough and dangerous enough to have had almost 30,000 grieving families that winter but we just shrug our shoulders at that and carry on wiping our snot on our sleeves and coughing all over everyone.

    Mentioning the seriousness of flu and the hypocrisy of people ISNT downplaying covid-19. It's highlighting how grossly hypocritical we as a nation have been.

    Ps, I include myself in the group of people who have possibly not done enough to protect the vulnerable from flu

    This isn't Germany, 1937. This is the world, 2020 and most other countries are doing something similar to deal with it. If you believe it is some totalitarian conspiracy, then surely most of the world is in on it too.

    We are going around in circles with daily threads from Dreamboy etc with this agenda, it is getting tedious now. We get it, we really do.

    The Blitz killed less (or at best a similar amount) in 8 months to what this has done in less than 5 since lockdown commenced. People had to sacrifice their civil liberties to deal with that and I bet people weren't whinging about it back then.

    This is fast becoming the "leave means leave, get over it!" equivalent default response.
