I'm not without sympathy for the argument that people's mental health needs to be considered. But there have got to be better ways than saying "Oh go on then, if you can't kill your nan at Christmas when can you?"

It's absolutely being done to spare Johnson's image and it's reprehensible.

And just like the "Fuck off 2020, can't wait for this year to be over" sentiment, folk need to accept that as far as it relates to pandemics and recessions and celebrity deaths, our twelve-month calendar is fucking arbitrary, and there's no more reason to relax in December or January than there was in October or November. This shit won't be over till we put in the work together over a sustained period, not when Jupiter aligns with Aquarius on a low tide.

Just been in the smaller of the two Tesco in Lincoln. Things were pretty much in stock apart from loo roll and pet food. Did see one guy at the till getting told by the checkout girl that he couldn't

I'll eventually work through all the messages but I'm safe. Thanks folks. I'm still an absolute mess but safe all the same.

I sometimes things politics and politicians live in a weird bubble outside of reality, like wrestling. People can see they’re fucking idiots and making stupid decisions. They can’t answer yes or no questions without skirting around it, yet no one does anything about it.

If a person on the street said, “Fuck the kids, they don’t need free meals” you’d call them heartless. If you asked someone a yes-or-no question and then they just starting jabbering on about something else, you’d just interrupt them and tell them to answer the fucking question. But politicians? It just gets brushed off as, “Well, that’s what politicians do! lol” and abhorrent decisions just lost in a news cycle.

If the most important thing for Christmas was for families to get together wouldn't it have made more sense to keep the current half arsed lockdown going until then? 

They need shops and places open at the busiest time of the year to keep the economy going. Johnson can't declare himself the Superman of Capitalism if all the shops are closed.

The new Covid tier map looks like this;

Meanwhile, in Jersey, the country is broken up into regions for inbound travel purposes, with a traffic light system designating how long anyone arriving has to self-isolate for. Our version looks like this;

Something that I found quite frustrating with Jersey's system is that if you look at London, it's broken down into every individual borough or local authority - at one point Bethnal Green was green while Hackney was amber, so you could inadvertently cross from one tier to another just by crossing the road. Meanwhile, you get "East Yorkshire & The Humber" as one massive area - so if there were a spike in Hull, that would mean the village my parents live in 20 miles away, that's only had a handful of cases, would be seen as a red area that you shouldn't be travelling to.

So Lincolnshire went in to Lockdown 2: Lockdown Harder in Tier 1 and came out in Tier 3. 2 of the councils are now in the top 10 highest infection rates in the country. So that has obviously worked well. 

The problems will be that the anti lockdowners will point to it as a reason to ignore all the restrictions and we will be even more fucked than we were before. 

So on the whole that Lockdown hasn't gone well.
