Where do you get this weird idea that the virus has come from someone who has been to Brazil, it's a virus it spreads. You'd accuse this government of anything, I'm surprised you haven't suggested that Boris went across to Wuhan and planted the initial bug there.

It's come from abroad, and we haven't secured our borders. Only the government to blame again, however you try to dress it up.

I blame Diane Abbott.

What has Dianne Abbott got to do with it, if you can't put a valid argument together don't bother posting. I just saw a post on Facebook from DMac on a flight going to Dubai, now let me get this right, is that Boris's fault that people don't obey the rules. In your tiny little mind, the answer is probably of course it's his fault. In Bristol yesterday there were hundreds of people sat around the docks, funnily enough, if you are sitting and eating you are not exercising, but the people, some of whom had travelled 30 miles to do just that, do not follow the rules. The Government have laid out the rules, stupid people do not follow them, but then that's his fault.

Yep, he is in a no/win, no/win situation.

What are you afraid of, dying of Covid, or surviving it because you were sensible enough to obey the rules. Simple choice, mine is the latter.

'showing your papers' to go to the cinema are 'rules'?? If you live in North Korea or Bolshevik Russia then yes, but not in a so called free democratic society! If you've been 'vaccinated' then what difference does it make if someone sat next to you at the game hasn't as you'll be protected won't you?

99% of people under 70 survive this 'deadly' virus and everyone over 70 has been vaccinated so ProjectFear/OperationTerror are running out of excuses to keep us locked up. How many other 'deadly' viruses have that kind of survival rate??

Try telling that to the millions who have lost love ones. I’ve had my first job, so feel a lot safer than I did at Christmas, I still consider there is too much danger out there, and would prefer to follow rules and consider the welfare of others than take the selfish attitude of ‘I’m alright Jack’

But if YOU follow the rules Bristle then why would you be in danger from people who don't? The easy default option is to blame rule breakers but if people are following the rules then how are they contracting it? Surely if they stay at home, social distance etc then they're not in danger.

It's the same with the Christmas has killed 1000s rhetoric, erm nobody forced Granny to hug anyone at Christmas did they? As always in this nanny state, everyone blames everyone else but themselves. I see lot's of elderly people wandering around without masks on & mixing with each other where I live, they seem to think they're safe now they've been jabbed.

Perhaps it’s because the bug is more transferable than everyone thinks, I wear a mask on the odd occasion we go to a supermarket, normally we do click and collect, but I don’t bother when we go go for our exercise walk, perhaps we should, if the government brought it in, I would have no problem complying, they appear to do it in vast swathes of Asia.

Interesting article on the BBC Website today (and these are the people we've had to put our lives on hold for). Who's selfish now???

More than four in 10 over-80s who have received the coronavirus vaccine during the current lockdown in England appear to have since broken the rules by meeting up with someone indoors, Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures suggest.

Some 43% of over-80s surveyed by the ONS said they had met someone other than a personal care support worker, member of their household or support bubble indoors since being vaccinated.

And 41% of over-80s vaccinated in the previous three weeks said they had done so - "appearing to break lockdown regulations".

Rules in England, introduced at the start of January, mean family or friends cannot meet socially indoors unless they are in the same household or support bubble.

No vaccination will ever give 100% immunity.

Why should I be at risk from catching a potential lethal virus from a selfish prick who think they're above the majority?
