I thought pubs were to blame ...

How do they know where someone caught it?

 

 

Exactly

We all know that pubs are the perfect conditions for spreading the virus.

We are being asked to put common sense aside, and rely on Bojo's world beating test and trace statistics instead *-)

so its just a coincidence that our paying half for people to go to Bojo's mates pubs has led to a second wave *-)

BoJo is just trying to avoid the political embarrassment of closing the pubs after encouraging people to visit them. >:-)

I've been in a pub and come out because it was too crowded.

Bar staff are not police officers and can't even check your identity.

I would have been prepared to give my real name and number.

There was a pile of forms on a table by the door.

But I didn't want to risk catching the virus so came straight out again.

Nobody seemed to be bothering.

If someone had been in the pub the day before who tested positive (rightly or wrongly as the tests aren't reliable) then everyone would have to self isolate on pain of a £10,000 fine - either of which would be devastating for many people.

The pub would have to close for a deep clean might never re open.

And the guy who tested positive would be a pariah.

So is it surprising so many people are giving false details?

If they give their details at all.

Sad truth is the high street and casual dining sector was already in crisis, even before covid.

We already had too many pubs

Now less people will have money to go in them,and many of those who can still afford it will keep out for fear of catching the virus.

Sadly, many need to close.

But to keep them open we are spending money we haven't got, and spreading the virus.

How do they know where someone caught it? Would be better if they just let them open 24 hours a day if they are going to stay open.

 

 

So those outbreaks in BAME areas of Northern towns are down to Muslims going down the pub? 8-) ..........

Common sense would suggest that when people catch it in the pub, they go back to their overcrowded housing, illegal factory sweatshops or whatever, where it spreads to others.

Is there any logic to closing at 10?

Is covid a nocturnal creature *-)

Or has Bojo realised that paying people to go to the pub and the second wave of covid is not a coincidence.

But that closing the pubs again after giving people our money to go to them,would be too politically embarrassing >:-)

Remarkable how the Tories are more concerned with keeping the pubs open,

than they were about mining and manufacturing industry.

They wouldn't subsidise mines or factories like they have done pubs.

I can only guess because pubs are a large source of rent for Tory Landlords.

And stealth tax for the Government.

You keep talking about common sense and then say you decided to go to a pub . As you keep telling us that’s where you catch covid ,why on earth would you want to go in one?

Got caught short and needed the toilet.

I realise toilets are for customers and would have bought something if I hadn't been scared of catching the virus.

I was castigated all over this forum for being at my van instead of my house during the lockdown

But I wouldn't risk doing what they were doing in the pub

If we need 2m between us outside, how can 1m be safe in a pub *-)

Facing each other for extended periods, talking loudly in still air 8-)

We should give up on government guidelines, forgo the taxpayers money Bojo is giving us to go down his mate's pubs, and use common sense instead.
