I don't think a lot of people actually GAF about the rules...
My sister does, she cancelled her dinner party the moment BJ put London into Tier 2. Rita Ora, take note! ;)
My Mrs is the same, she's self employed & the amount of people that have tried to get her to work during the lockdowns for their own gain is unbelievable... they're happy to break the rules for some fresh eyebrows, lashes or nails but scream blue murder on social media about other people not adhering.

One guy I know told me how his Mrs was paying extortionate amounts for botox lips but throwned upon having to work in an office. I genuinely have a bigger than ever dislike for people due to all of this.

As it stands, Asia-Pacific, contrasted with Europe and the Americas, has done a much better job dealing with Covid-19. I wouldn't have predicted that.
I would have! in fact I think I did

I drew some heat on here for suggesting wearing of face masks was a good thing months ago. Totally incompetent government led by a complete charlatan allied with an ill-disciplined population.
I was feeling a bit baffled during the first lockdown when we were supposed to only go out when absolutely necessary, yet when necessity took you to a crowded supermarket facemasks were not called for.
I think the concern about masks was two-fold. There weren't enough to go round back then. But also the govt was concerned that wearing a mask would lead people to believe they were safe regardless of breaching 1m social distancing. On the latter point, govt was spot on. People definitely believe a mask is a covid-proof device. It just isn't.
Then again, wearing a mask and brushing past somebody probably isn't as risky (for you, or those around you) as having a 200 strong party outside your student halls.
I think the govt have tried very hard. I think we've been let down by pillocks who refuse to understand what an R of 2.6 means.

This pandemic has made you realize what peoples' priorities are. Who would have thought that bog roll is more important that food?

:lol: if you haven't ate anything well.....

It's made me realise just how horrible some people are too. My daughter is 12 and her "boyfriend" that she's gone to school with since primary hasn't left the house since March, his Mum has some illness that makes her higher risk.... he told my daughter on the a phone call that he couldn't go back to school because if he caught the virus he could be responsible for killing his Mum.... WTF, he's 12 and his parents have mentally screwed him.

Girl I know from school was complaining about her beauty business being put on hold. "who is going to pay my bills"
Yet in the same week puts pics up on FB of going round to her dads house to celebrate his 60th "no way were we missing this"
could clearly see there were a few folk around. I've not been in my dads house since Mar due to autoimmune problems.

I try my best & not let the actions of others bother me but sometimes its hard to ignore.

The Pfizer vaccine being rolled out next week is incredible news.
But without the second jab in March we're still in the same situation.
And I hope (somewhat pessimistically) that everyone thinks the same and behaves.
We have a definite light at the end of the tunnel.
It's not an excuse to relax in any way.

Oops. 21 days between jabs. But not relaxing I think is still relevant.

My beloved Kay Burley's been taken off air for six months after celebrating her 60th birthday. I'm getting sick of hearing the words "error of judgement" when people made a clear and conscientious decision to ignore the rules!

You've got shocking taste in women!

Burley was part of the Dominic Cummings witch hunt. Hypocrite.
