    They should have strict lockdown in Rockall. 100%. of the population there have died from Covid. (0 out of 0)

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Pubs to close in Lancashire as tier 3 Covid strategy reluctantly accepted | Coronavirus | The Guardian

    Pubs and bars will close for more than 1 million people in Lancashire after the region’s leaders reluctantly accepted the strictest tier 3 coronavirus restrictions in exchange for £42m in financial support.

    The move, which was signed off during a meeting with Downing Street on Friday morning, is expected to be announced within hours. It is understood the new measures will come into force on Friday night but that is yet to be officially confirmed.

    Casinos, betting shops, bingo centres and soft play will close under the restrictions, the Guardian has been told.

    It means Lancashire becomes only the second part of England to be placed under the “very high” level of coronavirus restrictions while other parts of northern England remain firmly opposed to the measures. It is understood that gyms and leisure centres will be allowed to remain open.

    The region’s 15 councils will get £42m for businesses, the care sector and schools. One Lancashire leader said the government had made clear the tier 3 measures would be imposed with or without an agreement: “They said ‘Either take it or we’re going to put you in Tier 3 anyway’. It’s not a joint decision. It’s their way or the highway.”

    The government’s standoff with other northern leaders deepened when Andy Burnham, the Greater Manchester mayor, and Jamie Driscoll, the North of Tyne mayor, joined forces to oppose the imposition of tier 3 rules without significant additional financial support.

    In a statement also signed by Steve Rotheram, the metro mayor of the Liverpool city region, whose 1.6 million residents went into tier 3 restrictions earlier this week, they said: “The government is claiming that the north is divided and only interested in getting what we can for our own region. That is simply not the case.

    “We are all united in fighting for an 80% furlough scheme for all people affected by regional lockdowns, wherever they are in the country. Paying two-thirds of salaries will not be enough to protect the jobs of thousands – it should at least match the 80% that was available under furlough, with the minimum wage as the minimum support.

    “The universal credit top up is not the answer. It doesn’t help everybody and takes weeks to come through. It will not prevent severe hardship for thousands of low paid workers before Christmas.

    Thing is, our "highest level of lockdown" isn't actually that restrictive. Closing pubs is the harshest thing on there, with arguably no mixing of more than 1 household in your personal house.

    But then the wording is:

    "In some indoor settings"
    "in some outdoor settings"

    "May continue to travel to open venues, but reduce number of journeys"

    Those in area ADVISED against overnight stays in other parts of the UK, People outside area ADVISED against overnight stays here.

    Avoid travel "where possible" in and out of affected areas.

    Churches "Open , subject to social contact rules"

    EH??? More than 1 household indoors?

    It's the same old "Dont go out, but do go out" Matt Lucas tulipe.

    Seriously, this is the most serious lockdown we can do, in the worst hit areas?

    I'm all for test trace and isolation and local lockdowns, like that that is shown to work in other countires.

    We need working strategies for both, we have neither.

    It's all a bit bollocks really, seems the government make it up as they go along. Liverpool is tier 3 and no gyms allowed to open, Lancashire goes into tier 3 but gyms are allowed to open. So the tiers are not not really fixed in stone
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
