What a pain..

Better to isolate than to potentially get an illness that could kill it have long lasting health effects though, right?

I suppose it is an interesting time to be a submariner. You get the extra bonus navy pay, but that is balanced by the growing dread that someone on the sub is infected.

But you could seal the bulkhead. Or fire them from the torpedo tube (reliably informed the torpedo tubes are the best place to have a wank on a submarine).

Of course.. Just who would have thought a sports day after the euros final, would be a good idea..

I'm not really buying into the forced jollity the government's insisting we share today, more a sense of dread and déjà vu.

People might still be wearing masks this week, but as they see more and more people not bothering, the social pressure to have one will diminish.

Freedom day, being marked here, by my eldest son, who is a Teaching Assistant, having to self isolate because one of the children in his class has covid.

Yay! Freedom!

Also, at the nursing home where my wife works, about 3 members of staff are self isolating because they've been in contact with someone who has it too.

It's telling that all the agencies that they use, are struggling to fill these places due to lack of staff (I assume this is a mix of covid and brexit related reasons)

As soon as the government started calling it 'Freedom Day' I wanted to kick them in the nuts.

We're all still wearing masks indoors here in Wales, but use has dropped a fair bit out on the street. Be interesting to see how the cross-border rail connections will work, since masks on trains will still be mandatory. We did pass 61% fully vaccinated this morning, which is 75% of the adult population which is nice, and with 90% of the population having had at least one dose. We won't be opening up until a week into August though, with indoor masks still required in shops and on the busses etc.

By the way in London there's currently an anti-lockdown protest that has seen violent clashes. They seem to be protesting against...uh...well who knows really.

The way our PM talks about a change in regime, removing diktats and so on makes it looks like he’s taken over and freed us from someone else, rather than the reality of them being his rules. Do people fall for that?

Anyway…

No chance, there's no way that the Great British Public could be hoodwinked that easily.

To be fair, I’d be pretty pissed off if I was that stupid.
Having said that, it’s probably “rent a mob”, and yes, they are that stupid

Turns out that was just a brief website glitch.

I have better things to do than listen to Cummings on the television later, but the reports I've read today just all seem to confirm what we already knew: that Johnson has repeatedly fucked everything up and is generally an appalling person. Can't believe it took Megamind Dominic Cummings so long to work that out.

I'm surprised the tabloids aren't making more of the news that in mid-March 2020 he was desperate to visit an elderly lady in her mid-90s.

One of my colleagues currently has covid (mild symptoms thankfully) and I found out today that he went to the Euro 2020 final at Wembley and that everyone else who went with him also picked up the virus. Rather glad I'm 99% home-based or there would have been a fair chance of catching it from him.
