I'd be very surprised if the Brit gov did that.

Booster vaccines to over 60s will ensure NHS isn't crippled
I hope not, we have to draw the line somewhere.

I think that seems to be the conclusion across the board. Just have to live with it and the consequences.

I’m still wearing a mask in shops- but there’s no way that’s preventing spread really when you can be in a 16 man scrum, a pub, a nightclub, a restaurant etc.

This plan B the nhs confederation are pushing for, it only seems effective if you stop sport, social life, public transport etc and we go back into lockdown caves. I just feel anymore economic damage and we’ll end up living in Bartertown.

Edit:

Presumably schools and colleges would go under the bus, land of the super spreaders.

I think plan B would just bring us in line with scotland and wales. Not sure how wonderfully different the effects of those are.

Looking at the people promoting it they want:

A) overthrow the government.
B) lockdown by stealth.
C) overthrow the government.

It will start with mandatory masks and result in full lockdowns- any middle ground is still Tory murder.

NI and Wales have higher case number than England. Scotland slightly lower who are coming off their peak due to schools starting earlier

Desths seem contained, and I expect that the same can be said of the negative impact on the health care system.

Time to open up and live. Just needs monitoring of the immunity level and proper assessment of when boosters are required.

Soon COVID will be a part of our life we'll pay little attention to.

I hope you're right, but all the govt noises and experience of how things have escalated in the past say otherwise, so BOOKMARKED

We want plan b.

No plans for plan b

We want plan b

There is no appetite for plan b

Plan b?

We're going for plan b


Why would plan b have even been called plan b if it want the plan?

Yep,

Quietly this week with no vote in Parliament the Government gave themselves another 6 months of emergency powers, we actually are not living in a democracy currently. It’s the sort of thing that if it was happening in Russia or China we’d be worried about.

They’re of course having a lock down before Xmas, yesterday the direct threat of lockdown vs vaccination was made by Javid.

God knows how any decent democratic voice returns.

I'd be very surprised if the Brit gov did that.

Booster vaccines to over 60s will ensure NHS isn't crippled
I hope not, we have to draw the line somewhere.
I genuinely believe you can't afford it.

Won't be happening
I hope you're right, but all the govt noises and experience of how things have escalated in the past say otherwise, so BOOKMARKED

We want plan b.

No plans for plan b

We want plan b

There is no appetite for plan b

Plan b?

We're going for plan b


Why would plan b have even been called plan b if it want the plan?

Yep,

Quietly this week with no vote in Parliament the Government gave themselves another 6 months of emergency powers, we actually are not living in a democracy currently. It’s the sort of thing that if it was happening in Russia or China we’d be worried about.

They’re of course having a lock down before Xmas, yesterday the direct threat of lockdown vs vaccination was made by Javid.

God knows how any decent democratic voice returns.

The science works with data, not by a plan. Masks and covid passports to go to the loo are ineffective in controlling anything.

I don't understand after all the shit that the media spouted last year, and all the blame they got for creating panic where none was warranted, they're off running scare stories again.

Paranoid conspiracy freaks now think that having more than one plan is in fact evidence of a nefarious plan. :lol: :lol:

It depends what you mean by nefarious.

Yes, laying out plan A and plan B, while saying that plan B is never going to be implemented, makes it pretty obvious that plan B will in fact be implemented.

Paranoid conspiracy freaks remember when we were told there was no chance christmas would be cancelled, the day before christmas was cancelled.

If there was actually a plan A and plan B, but plan B was not intended to be used unless in exceptional circumstances, then they wouldn't be called plan A and plan B, we'd just be told that there were new restrictions if those exceptional circumstances came to pass.

Boris, 14th November?

It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that we must now move to plan B.

I don't think they'll try it on 1st November, even though it would fit nicely into 2nd half of term. Guy Fawkes would be too easy to invoke.

You'll have to put people back on Furlough again.

I just don't see that happening. You'll be riding this tough winter out and hospitals will struggle until March.

What does u-turn mean? They are not going to announce changes until the science demands it. It's not a f**king U-turn it's a linear progression.
