    Default DOOM: Breach Lockdown In Style

    ..if you are Rita Ora

    Rita Ora apologises for breaking England lockdown with party in restaurant | Music | The Guardian

    The singer Rita Ora has apologised for breaching lockdown rules by holding a “small” gathering with friends for her 30th birthday.

    Ora admitted a “serious and inexcusable error of judgment” after celebrating with friends at a restaurant in Notting Hill, west London, on Saturday night.

    It is understood Ora has volunteered to pay a fine, which can be up to £10,000 for anyone who organises an illegal gathering.

    The Metropolitan police confirmed officers were called to reports of a potential breach of Covid regulations in the area at 9.10pm on Saturday. It is unclear whether any formal action has been taken over the breach.

    In a post on Instagram Stories, Ora said: “Hello all, I attended a small gathering with some friends to celebrate my 30th birthday. It was a spur of the moment decision made with the misguided view that we were coming out of lockdown and this would be OK.


    “I’m deeply sorry for breaking the rules and in turn understand that this puts people at risk. This was a serious and inexcusable error of judgment. Given the restrictions, I realise how irresponsible these actions were and I take full responsibility.

    “I feel particularly embarrassed knowing first hand how hard people have worked to combat this terrible illness and being fully aware of the sacrifices that people and businesses have made to help keep us all safe. Even though this won’t make it right, I want to sincerely apologise.”

    The Metropolitan police said in a statement: “Police were called at 21:10 on Saturday, 28 November, to reports of a potential breach of Covid regulations at a commercial premises in Clarendon Road, W11. Officers attended and carried out enquiries at the scene but found no indication of any offence being committed at the time.

    “Officers continue to assess the allegations and are liaising with the local authority regarding a potential breach of regulations at the premises. Enquiries continue.”

    The Sun, which first reported the story, said Ora attended the party at Casa Cruz restaurant with “more than 30 people”.

    Images showed Ora arriving at the restaurant along with a number of other people, including the models Cara and Poppy Delevingne.

    So the rest of England knows lockdown doesn't end until the 2nd yet she thinks it had already finished?

    Even if we were out of lockdown and into the new tier system, London is T2 and the very first restriction is:

    Tier 2: High alert

    This is for areas with a higher or rapidly rising level of infections, where some additional restrictions need to be in place.
    In tier 2:

    • you must not socialise with anyone you do not live with or who is not in your support bubble in any indoor setting, whether at home or in a public place
    She should go to prison.

    She wanted a party and added £10,000 to the cost.

    For 40 she will pay 100k fine to pretend there is no party...

    Who should be in quarantine as they were in the USA last week...
    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.
