I'm in complete agreement,  kids still get the enjoyment of opening presents, adults just put going out on the lash on hold because this day and age for the majority of adults its just another excuse to get bladdered like every weekend through out the year, as for family gatherings, it would be far safer to gather after the vaccines have been rolled out or else by being impatient it could cause some elderly folk not to be here for next Xmas when all is safe,  anyhow since early march our way of life has been a flippin nightmare, we are now on the brink of putting this nightmare behind us,  this is where the Sheffield Forum comes into its own,  so lets get the message out to our familys to hold back and keep safe, hopefully this message will spread faster than this awful thing we have plighting our lives at the moment.

A good post. The positive news about the vaccines is a game changer.

Cheers,  Yes it really is positive news and game changer, it would even better if the people on the prioty list could get their jabs before Xmas, using the existing test centres is an exellent idea to get the vaccine circulated quicker.

How about there being a difference between London and a small village in Sheffield?

It only takes one person to transmit it given the right (wrong, but you see what I mean) circumstances.

Makes no odds whether he's standing in Gloucester Road tube station or rambling through the Hope Valley.

Has there been a second lockdown then? I thought it had been cancelled. When this was due to start I thought things would be the same as the first lockdown so I stayed in for the first week. I then decided to go and get some grub,I was amazed. There were cars and people every ware.I decided to avoid the traffic and go to Fox Valley.The car park was packed as were the shops. Most of them appeared to be open including those I didn't  think were allowed to  open,I gave it up as a bad job.It came as no surprise that the death toll has since continued to rise.The governments answer, lets have five days of doing anything,mixing and going anywhere over xmas. Start a third wave and force another lockdown.The mind boggles at such gross incompetence and total lack of consideration for NHS workers.

Well England, Scotland and Wales have all had different rules, at different times.

There are roughly 3,000,000 newly self-employed that have not been elidgable for furlough, they could end up homeless.

We should be living in a free country were people can choose to work or not. We seem to be entering into a dictatorship, with another pay freeze and needing permission to meet family members at a special time.

People voted for Boris to get Brexit done, not for this country to led by Boris the dictator.

Just cancel Xmas,  Sherriff of Nottingham (Alan Rickman)  did in Prince of Thieves.  :hihi:

No need to cancel Christmas. Even if you're on your own you can still enjoy the day. Break out the Baileys (or tipple of your choice,) get some nice food in that you enjoy and a few treats, settle back in front of the fire, warm and snug, watch what you want on the telly, and count your blessings. Plenty of people would love a Christmas like that.

Agree entirely.  Just one day, although there's two of us. 

 

I'd rather that, than a full Xmas dinner & wondering who might not be around by Easter?

This whole issue was a decided way back in March/April.

From the very beginning, our government made the mistake of asking the public to comply. Instead of enacting laws and enforcing them.

Too late now, and we can expect future waves to continue.

Sorry Anna, I was kidding around at the Sherriff of Nottingham ref,  I was thinking on the lines of the group risk,  in these times  your post describes a perfect ideal Xmas.  Go steady on the Baileys tho.  :hihi:

Different countries. different rules, different times, same virus.

Employee, self-employed, unemployed, same virus.

Dictatorship?

Nay.

You don't need permission to meet family members at a special time. It's up to you whether you want to risk it. That's your decison, not Johnson's.

You either take the advice/guidance, or don't.

What happened to the video of Peter Hitchens?

I wanted to read it but now I can't find it.

Was it in this thread, or am I mistaken?

That’s true but I think the relaxation of the rules is raising other issues. I know of a few ‘vulnerable’ people who are being coerced into attending gatherings because of government endorsement
