My uncle lost his battle to this in Royal Bolton this morning, so he will be one of today’s numbers.  last rites over the phone held by a nurse with no family there. made an exception yester

That was one of the loveliest things to ever happen. Stood in my garden sobbing like a baby! Proud to work for the NHS 👏👏👏👏❤️

I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single

Im not so sure

I felt this lockdown was intended as a shot across the bows of pubs rather than the folk who go in them

Why shouldnt i go for a few beers in manc with another couple over the weekend?

Outside

Is that legal, i honestly cant keep up

 

I went to this and that for a curry int NQ today as I was in work.

just been to the local shop, same story. 6 or 7 in there, none with a mask on. Absolute fucking morons.

It really shouldn't need policing by shop staff.

But we dont have enough coppers to do it

Shops shouldve been told they cant serve folk without a mask

A few weeks back I felt a bit snotty, like I might be getting something. Went on the website and checked the procedure. Didnt actually have one of the key indicator symptoms so didn't bother.

Right as rain within a day.

It seems some are playing the system a bit.

Understandable though when you’ve got to stay in for 14 days after coming back from holidays.
 

Mate’s lad was climbing the walls after 5 days so went and got tested. Got the all clear so started going out again. Not following the letter of the law but in his mind he wasn’t putting anybody at risk so got on with his life.

Aye, hence me saying it shouldn't need policing. 

Everyone knows when going into shops they should wear a mask but too many think it doesn't apply to them. That sort of attitude means we're gonna be stuck with this for a long time to come. 

It also means I can't go for a pint or even have a beer in a mate's garden for the foreseeable and that's what's really pissed me off.

You can have a beer in your mate's garden, though.

Just that he/she can't be there with you!

They’re paid minimum wage. I wouldn’t either.
 

I was in tesco this lunchtime and 4 coppers wandering round with masks on getting sandwiches etc for lunch. people walking round with no masks on. Police said fuck all. Why should a shop worker say anything when our own law enforcement don’t give a flying fuck. They’ve been like this since the start of the pandemic. Useless lazy cunts 

it all seems half arsed to me 

if those dicks from up Bury road decide to jump on a tram in Radcliffe to have a few scoops in Manchester on Saturday there wont be any coppers at the station to challenge them

or from anywhere else in Bolton for that matter , loads go these days on the train for an afternoon session

For us diseased boltoners, no not even outside. 

I was in the gym earlier and they even asked a girl (awesome body, small tits) to stop having conversations with other people

Finished my working day over Rochdale way and one of my mates works over there. Quick phone call and we met for a couple pints there before heading home. Probably against rules but sat outside, either end of a table. Don't feel I've done wrong. 

Spoke to my mate who lives in France and works in a bar. Says he doesn't have to do too much shouting at folk to play by the rules until late on. They have to wear masks in bars there unless sat at table. Difference is, he says the police are out in force checking, 180 euro fine for both offender and bar owner on first offence rising to 1000 euro for second. Too heavy handed or fair enough and what we should be doing??

We had another one of the very special brand of pricks at work yesterday - refused to wear a mask, said he was entitled to come in the shop, said he was exempt, said we would lose a big customer, asked if were happy to throw money away, got told yes, put a mask on and came in and bought some stuff.

Why not just put one on and save 10 minutes of aggro if you're going to do it in the end?

It’s how it is in most places up here that to be fair. If you’re moving about the pub wear a mask. It’s just second nature now.

Harsh that.

They will come out with some excuse and it really will not be worth the police time to follow it up.

Probably harsh in respect of mask enforcement as the government have left a massive gaping loophole in it. but during our lockdown gangs of kids hanging about street corners and the like and police just driving past looking and carrying on. They did nothing. 
 

there was limited crime as no one was out. What were they doing with their time?

Probably taking missing from home reports from children's homes, attending domestic abuse allegations, to be honest the list is endless.

Aye absolutely pulled out they would’ve been doing half the usual workload. Nice work if you can get it I suppose. But they clapped outside the hospitals for their videos and on the bridges in London so it’s all good
