Quite. What a thick twat that Lawrence Fox really is. Strictly enforced too according to a guy on here who's over there on holiday.
 
Reading the comments, most of those following him are as thick as pigshit.

And if Lawrence Fox frequents Costa then I'm a fucking Dutchman.

Lawrence Fox, Gillian McKeith. Build it and they will come. Gillian McKeith should stick to sniffing jobbies.

The UK hasn't decided whether 3rd booster jags are worthwhile either, the Mexico thing is a non story.

The Sun is saying otherwise...

Yeah, it looks like it but there won't be an official recommendation from the JCVI till September.

Pittodrie today - testing, photo IDs, no food, compulsory mask wearing, turn up 2 hours before game, social distanced seats, told when to leave seat. 

Fir Park today - no social distancing, no masks, nobody gives a f**k. 

What a fucking joke. What's the point of it all ? Either do it everywhere, or don't do it at all.

Lockdown working wonders on Delta in Australia, clearly. Guess they truly will have to start welding front doors shut like Wuhan. Or maybe just shoot rule breakers now the army is on the streets?

It's almost as if being realistic by looking at the long-term and mitigating is preferable to some fantasy of permanent supression which was always going to store up problems for a later day.

 

Never mind.

Masks will save them all........ :lol:

Aberdeen seem to be the outlier in all this, the Motherwell experience is certainly more in line with everywhere else that I've heard of.

Aberdeen city and shire and have far fewer cases than both north Lanarkshire and Edinburgh (looking at last nights game). 

Yet fans attending the game at Pittodrie had to jump through hoops like performing poodles and do everything aside from wearing hazmat suits, where as fans at Fir Park and Tynecastle last night both looked like they are/were enjoying the experience of a normal game. 

Ridiculous virtue signalling from Aberdeen city council, sadly supported by Aberdeen FC who seem determined to act like they're doing fans a favour while actually making it as uncomfortable as possible to support the team.

Spectacularly missing the point in order to get in a cheap jibe.  virginton - swing and a miss (again).

He didn’t say that was why it was abolished though, did he? He said that if you don’t believe in rehabilitation, you might as well bring it back as there is no other “cure”. 

Which is a completely moronic 'point' because wrongful conviction is in fact the primary reason why you should do no such thing. 

Better luck white knighting your fellow pub bore next time.

Must be a different virus in Aberdeen or North Lanarkshire.

Cases continue to go down. It'll be two weeks (just wait) tomorrow since England binned almost all restrictions.

And the bed wetters really aren't taking it well. It's almost as if they wanted the laughable 100,000 cases per day to get one over the nasty Toriez and don't give a toss about folk getting ill or dying.

At County game yesterday, in the away end) there was no mask enforcing. No one cared where you sat or what you did. No catering. 

Same at Grant St once you were through the gates. But even Lossie were selling pies ffs, they have to sort the catering out pronto.

Is it anything to do with Aberdeen pushing for as high an attendance limit as possible and getting strict enforcement rules in return? Not that I have any respect for Aberdeen Council.

That's pretty much it. 

I would imagine other clubs would have received instructions from their local councils, but nobody seemed to give a f**k. It looks like it was only at Pittodrie where it was enforced and people went along with it. 

Giving these powers to the councils means that there's absolutely no consistency Scotland-wide, and in Aberdeen's case it doesn't bode well for games after 9th August, where it's got to be suspected that the city council will be reluctant to give up these sweeping powers.
