NS has said this plenty times, but if the islands don't go immediately into Tier 0, then she would be having restrictions longer than need be.

I'm not sure that's an accepted social category.

It never has been TBF

You should have seen it last Friday. She’s doing some of us a favour.

Very frustrating for the pubs in the 11 local authorities in Tier 3 who were told they would be closed for a short, sharp 16 days and will remain closed for much longer.

 

I really feel sorry for them. They’ve been made a scapegoat in all of this. I said at the time of the “16 days” announcement that it would be extended bit by bit until month(s) had passed.

All it took was the crew of one trawler to set it off in Orkney in August.

This isn't really true, is it? United's season ticket was sold on the basis of giving fans a credit for every game that they've not been able to get in for after the first three. Therefore letting these ticket holders in for a game reduces the club's liability come next summer. Perhaps in reality most fans won't claim this refund anyway, but the club can't be absolutely certain of that.

I know for a fact that two pro teams local to me do not want any fans back until crowds can resume like they were before. It’s would cost them money to have season ticket holders back only. They’ve already got the ST money but allowing them back in would result in extra costs (stewards etc) to what they’re paying now

You work in a supermarket iirc. Can honestly see a lot of pissed off folk having to stand out in the pishing wet/cold/windy days to be “allowed in”. It’s alright saying get online delivery but a lot of folk don’t want that

If they don't want to stand in the pishing rain they can use home delivery. If they don't want to use home delivery either they can fucking starve. Do you really expect Tesco to go against government restrictions/advice because Thereisonlydarkness fae Ayrshire "doesnae want that".

Honestly, my 3 year old niece has gone through this pandemic with more maturity than you have.

Taking opinion on the current restrictions / need for them out of the equation, what are people's thoughts on tweets like this?

Think she is trying to get the word out that any vaccine that makes it through Phase 3 any time soon will not be expected to provide the sterilising immunity that would be required to prevent transmission and would be implemented mainly to alleviate severe symptoms in high risk patients (only needs to happen for > 50% in trials to be potentially eligible for FDA approval). That's why there is also a lot of talk of any vaccine only being made available to high risk groups, because how would most people under 50 benefit from that?

I worked for Tesco when I was a student and their customers are some of the most entitled and selfish people I have ever met. They would throw a tantrum over any minor inconvenience. 

I can only imagine what retail staff have had to put up with over the last 6 months from customers. Ironically it will be the cretins who were posting "stay safe" all over social media and sticking rainbows in their windows in March and April who will be the most entitled and difficult to deal with.
