Given Christmas Day mingling and images of the queues for Boxing Day sales (what are they buying?) are we set for a national tier 4 aka another lockdown?

New trainers, probably?

 

I was in JD on the Moor today, and it was packed.  There was no two-metre distancing in there, and seemingly no limit to the number of customers allowed in, not all of whom were wearing masks.

 

If I catch the dreaded 'Rona, that's where I'll have caught it from 🙄

Unless they caught it from you.

Don’t want to say you’d deserve it.... but 

a) why go in the first place-new trainers really?

b) why not head straight out given the lack of space/face restrictions?

 

Given we can’t have visitors to show off our new home wares to and nowhere to go to wear bargain(!) clothes why would anyone queue for hours to risk spreading an increasing vociferous virus

They should have maintained a safe distance and worn a mask then 😁

Honest answer?

 

I wanted to get out of the house and I didn't fancy going to Meadowhall and have to wait for an hour to get in.

 

Plus I'm a tight-fisted Yorkshireman and having weighed up the risk of getting the 'Rona versus the risk of missing out on a bargain, I went shopping.

 

As it happens, I should have stayed at home.

 

Town was dull.

So desperately to go to Boxing Day sales and to a business not practising social distancing protocols. Hope they fit okay or he can return them before tier 4 shuts non essential shops

Have you actually been  down town seeing it with your own eyes or have you just applied your own interpretation to some very carefully angled shots of these so-called "crowds" and "lack of social distancing"??

 

If it's the latter then I would be cautious of taking  these images at face value. I've seen this happen many times before partucularly with  sites like Mail Online and certain exaggerating local rags such as Yorkshire Live or The Star making complete mountains out of a molehills and picking carefully edited photographs to create some drama and sell their advertising space.

Has anyone actually identified the loo-roll that published that picture, or even verified it is/was taken yesterday, and not merely a stock photo?
