Christmas is crushed by Covid

Christmas is POSTPONED for us because we don’t fancy ending up Poorly or dead.
We can do things with friends and family when we are control of this disease. I would be happy putting my tree up in summer just for the fun of it and look back and say we are glad we never risked it.
Santa can do some flexible working for the X tribe this year and hope he gets back on track in 2021,
Good luck all and hope to read your comments for many years to come.

A new more infectious strain of Covid is detected in London and the South East.
The Government announces a level 4 lockdown from Midnight.
Tens of thousands of people leave the area to escape the lockdown, spreading this new strain across the country.
You couldn’t make it up.December 20, 2020 at 5:00 pm #197888
Andy there is a massive level of disbelief about the mass exodus from London, alright for those that can afford second homes or luxury short term accomodation to get away from the London misery over Christmas and potentially take “Super-Covid” with them.
The less well off will be stuck but will be feeling that downtrodden and disenfranchised that they’ll defy rules of not even being allowed to meet up on Christmas day – the Met have stated that they won’t be knocking on doors to enforce any rules. Chaos in the capital.December 20, 2020 at 6:25 pm #197889
All that was needed was for the powers to be at the top to view a few Hollywood Blockbuster films and they would have seen that in emergencies (and Covid clearly is an emergency situation for some) everyone wants to run from the epicentre to safety with family and friends.December 21, 2020 at 8:28 am #197913
Doesn’t Boris watch Zombie films?

Well it’s all escalated quickly hasn’t it, now up to 445.7 per 100k in Wrexham.
I’d say “Let’s go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for this all to blow over” – but in this case in the first instance it wouldn’t be permitted to sell any alcohol and now ultimately closed. How utterly depressing.December 22, 2020 at 7:48 pm #198025
Matt if only we had 445 across all of Wrexham – some areas are above 800 on the community data figures which is incredibly high and shows how much people are mixing.December 22, 2020 at 8:24 pm #198026
Not one person out of about 40 where I work in Wrexham is planning to follow the rules over Xmas, most will be seeing who they want over Xmas and travelling to Chester or Broughton Retail Park shopping in the sales. The police have no legal right to enforce travel bans, as the senedd has not had a chance to vote on these measures and vote them into law….Drakeford is ruling by decree and is hoping that people are to ignorant of this fact to question it. If stopped by the police, simply tell them your going over the border to form a support bubble, or to visit a sick relative…..perfectly valid excuses and they can’t prove otherwise. This Government won’t back down so it’s up to people to bring them down. You wouldn’t sit on a plane and allow the captain to crash it, without at least trying to retake the plane, so why should we allow this Government to crash the country and destroy people’s basic freedoms, without trying to stop them? 99.5% survival rate for gods sake. We’d have never won two world wars with this snowflake cowardly generationDecember 22, 2020 at 9:27 pm #198027
First off Wrexham1, I really hope all your work pals go off to the sales on Boxing Day in Broughton, to see their faces when they realise everything is closed, seeing as it is situated in Flintshire.
Secondly, which generation are you having a pop at as being snowflakes? Mark Drakeford is 66 and is a Baby Boomer, so are the vast majority of people running all 4 of the home nations.
At some point people are going to have to put down the British Empire porn and stop masturbating over the 2 wars we happened to be lucky enough to be on the winning side of that took place 75 years ago and 102 years ago respectively.
They have very little relevance to the current situation we are in today when it comes to a pandemic and disease control.
The irony is, we are actually taking all these measures to protect those over 75 firat and foremost who would have experienced World War 2. We’re saving actual War veterans in their 90s by shielding them and preventing spread until they can get a vaccine. I bet not a single one of them will insult us for it and call us snowflakes. Which is why I find anonymous anger on the internet so disingenuous in comparison.
As a final sign off Drakeford is currently playing a great game of Monkey see, monkey do. So he is following everything Johnson is laying out in England in terms of tier 4 restrictions, so any criticism laid upon Drakeford is equally valid and relevant against the Westminster Government.
