1, Not quite , its been used by ASDA's, AlDI, COOP, Tesco and othersOnl;y one chain use the traffgic light system and this was only brought in at the end of last year
Minimum wage monkeys standing there in their stab vests, paying more attention to their mobile phones than numbers coming in and out. My local Sainsburys had these, no radio comms between them to ascertain how many in and how many out, the one at the entrance just kept waving people through until told enough by a staff member.
Mandatory yes, but how many still get through the loophole by blatantly wearing the sunflower lanyard from Amazon because they don't like wearing masks? Sanitisers, fair enough.
And yet the amount of couples seen in all stores seems to go against this, I've seen one of a customer couple rail against a non mask wearing customer quoting Govt regs, yet seemed to skulk away when informed that it was also against Govt regs to go shopping as a couple
Yet there was a massive growth in online food shopping during the first 2 months of the 1st lockdown, so it seems actually GOING shopping is not a necessity.
I can’t be arsed checking, but the original comment was that there was a 98% survival rate (incorrect, but hey, whatever).1.34m dead in the UK from COVID? Where on earth did you get that statistic from?
Pile of gash. And the sweeties comment is only valid if you eat the whole bag.
No wonder educational standards in the country are slipping.
Back at the beginning of this I was tasked, on govt pay, to look at how other countries were dEaling in Europe and further afield.Do you just ignore the articles, tables and quotes I so helpfully link in order to demonstrate how piss poor his handling of the pandemic has been?
Thank fck the vaccine programme has been so successful.
Chumbawamba walt...To be fair, in keeping with his stance on, well, everything, he was going to order a pint of every type of beer, a pint of water, sparkling wine, white wine, red wine, whisky, vodka, rum, brandy, Blue Curacao, soda water, lager tops and a Babycham.
"And one for yourself comrade landlord."
The clinically vulnerable bit refers to your chances of injury/death if you get it.I never got the covid... even though I am "clinically extremely vulnerable".... according to the NHS...

the problem is that the U.K. is unique in a number of confounding factors in comparison to other countries in terms of demographic, population densit, economic, etc, etc. We made a **** ton of mistakes but we also had unique challenges - and others screwed up just as bad as us.
so we didn’t have to have army trucks carting away the bodies. We didn’t have clinicians demonstrating by going naked online due to a lack of PPE. We didn’t “hasten” the deaths of OAP’s. We didn’t refuse to record any Covid death if the paperwork wasn’t in by under 24 hrs. All of this was in western Europe and just the crap I can remember
when it is all over Boris is going to be skewered by various committees - but the reality is that this was an unprecedented event and I don’t think anyone would have got it ‘right‘ bearing in mind the above confounding factors. There is no DS solution for this - and if there was nobody will be able to figure it out until long after it is over and ALOT of research has been done.
Exercise CYGNUS was ignored.Good post.
One of the great tragedies of human existence is that, whatever the challenge, be it military operations, childcare for disabled children or a global pandemic, those who are clearly expert in all aspects of everything are strangely never on hand when disaster strikes and we mere mortals are left to get on with it as best as we can.
Nobody in my family got it..The clinically vulnerable bit refers to your chances of injury/death if you get it.
Your (and more importantly those around you) adherence to NPI’s is the driving factor in your chances to getting infected.
