We've already had exactly that situation a couple of months ago. And it might as well be that way in border areas - as posted earlier, our Christmas Day meal was booked at a restaurant not 100 yards over the border between Leigh and Warrington. They're open, but we aren't allowed to go

Just a hundred yards? - can they deliver it by drone?

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

Why they ask for proof of address?

Aye, but is there a point about city boroughs boundaries? Not say Leigh and Warrington, just in terms of simple numbers, commuting, offices, bars, demographics etc

Mate of mine just had test results back today - he's positive, which means he has to isolate for the next 10 days, which takes him over the Christmas break obviously, so he's had to cancel his Parents coming round on Xmas day.......his Mrs is most dischuffed, as she reckons he caught it at a work meeting in London a few days ago, as all 6 in the meeting have tested positive

The rules don't say you can't go do they? They just advise you shouldn't.

We'll see early January, but I'd expect we'll see a massive spike, I know you disagree, because everywhere is shut, but I'm convinced once all the students are at home, they'll start spreading it.


Even though workplaces and hospitality are closed, I'm not convinced that's where the problem is, I think it's kids and students spreading it now. And in a few days time, they'll potentially be mixing with more people than they would be doing under todays restrictions

I agree on the kids bit, However of the 12m kids in education, 10m of them are in Nursery, Primary, secondary and 6th form education. Their potential for transmission should dramatically reduce for the 2 weeks over Xmas as they are at home 

The other 2m are in higher education, some living at home anyway, others living away. Whilst the ones living away travelling home could bring Covid with them that should be more than off set by the 10m+ who are now at a vastly reduced risk of transmission as they aren’t in school

I am not sure we should be copying Spanish rules. Surely we want to set our own rules. 

Spain have devolved decisions on Covid to the regions. It’s nothing to do with he EU.

But at least we can vote the Tories out.

Seems the government is able to split areas in the South of England into different tiers,e.g. waverly. But it's unable to do so for the North of England. strange that. Does Hancock live in Waverly.??

Its about numbers, movement etc not just about borough borders. 

London shouldn't have been in tier 2, and Gtr Manchester shouldn't either.

We'll soon find out, I think the 5 day relaxation will send the numbers soaring, and you don't......I hope that you're right and I'm wrong

I don't think there's much of a foolproof solution in a country as small as ours, but they managed to put different areas of GM under different restrictions (including Bolton) the other month

I’m convinced the government bending the truth on infection rates to justify higher tiers.
