I would love to lock up Johnson, Hancock and the rest of their clueless clan controlling our lives
They should be answerable for their sheer incompetence.

Thing is the devolved governments are no better. Scotland's numbers are worse than ever and they went into lockdown way before everyone else, the Welsh goverment won't admit the firebreak lockdown was pointless and are yet to decide to take on the tier system before Christmas. No doubt it will be another rebrand with new added confusion.
And the Labour party, well they are willing to go along with whatever the government says is necessary so replacing the current mob will result in exactly the same outcome. Or worse.

Just when you think it couldn`t get any barmier...

Drinkers in tier two areas of England could order a Scotch egg with their pint to keep in line with post-lockdown rules, a cabinet minister has said.
Under new restrictions from Wednesday, pubs in those high risk areas can only open if they function as a restaurant.
And alcohol can only be served as part of a "substantial meal".
Environment Secretary George Eustice told LBC Radio that Scotch eggs would constitute such a meal "if there were table service".
Pubs and restaurants are currently closed across England, apart from for takeaways.
Mr Eustice said the "substantial meal" provision in tier two was "understood very much by the restaurant trade".
He said: "I think a Scotch egg probably would count as a substantial meal if there were table service.
"Often that might be as a starter but yes I think it would, but this is a term that's understood in licensing... you can have the concept of a table licence for alcohol that also requires you to serve a substantial meal.
"That is the model that is being followed."

The bar/restaurant we were going to on Boxing day for a family meal told me this when I rang. (WEeare in Tier 3) " They are waiting until Dec 16th when the government will be reviewing the tier system for restaurants. If we move to Tier 2, the meal will be on, if we remain in Tier 3 we can forget it, as they won't be doing takeaways.

It's the same problem here.
In tier three and I doubt the family outing to the restaurant will be open for us
Maybe sausaage sarnies again!
