    Whilst I have very little confidence in the Government in the way they have handled the pandemic , I would have thought they have had discussions with NHS bosses on the worst case scenario impact of relaxing all of the restrictions. I still think we could be in trouble though in Autumn as the Delta variant rips its way through the community .Someone is/are keeping very quiet on how lethal this variant is .I'm fed up of keep hearing from our Government fed media ,"That its more transmissable for sure but we dont know how severe it is "

    All they need to do is ask India !

    I doubt it - you only have to watch the faces of those Doctors and Scientists that stand beside BJ to see the doubts they have - (I'm guessing that if they did say something, they wouldn't be standing there again)
    It's more likely that it's pressure from the business and hospitality sectors, along with the funds for furlough continuing - albeit at a reduced rate.

    That goes without saying a more transmissable and deadlier variant will place a strain the NHS for sure . A vulnerable double vaxxed person will still struggle with this and I am sure and will end up hospitalised. Assuming they will survive it ,they will be in hospital for a long time and probably will need assisted ventilating . They will not shrug this off at home .Again I dont see any cautionary advices being given for the variant .

    Personally I am dreading the next variant as it will be even nastier .

    Me too - Resolve is something to be maintained, one only do what one can do and self-control is key

    Sorry guys I just dont follow the debate here

    Are we saying on one hand that because of Covid, people cant go out to enjoy themselves because of groups of people get together .

    Yet on the other hand we allow large group gatherings for political demonstrations that havnt had the necessary permissions to hold them on a topic that I feel is irrelevant in this country ie the Palestine demonstrations ?

    I dont see much difference

    There really isn't a difference
    Whereas Music and Sporting events are generally those where people attend to be entertained, and Political rallies, marches and demonstrations, gatherings of anarchy and disregard to the Law, directives/guidance - it is for me, the same scenario

    Yes - The Maths does seem based more on economic recover rather that infection and Death figures

    Boris Johnson announces he is self-isolating:
    The current wave of coronavirus infections could see up to 200,000 new cases a day, Imperial College London epidemiologist Neil Ferguson has warned.
    [​IMG]
    Prof Ferguson told BBC1’s Andrew Marr Show that it was “almost inevitable” that daily infection rates would hit a record 100,000 within a week, and that cases could spike at more than double that figure.
    His frightening announcement comes just hours ahead of England’s “freedom day”, where all remaining coronavirus restrictions are set to be lifted on Monday.
    All adults in the UK have been offered a Covid-19 vaccine ahead of the planned lifting of coronavirus restrictions on Monday, the government says.
    The latest figures show that 46.2 million adults (87.8 per cent of the population) have had a first dose of a vaccine, and 35.7 million (67.8 per cent) are fully vaccinated.
    Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that the vaccination target had been met, and called it an “extraordinary achievement”.
