  • will another lock down come with all the attendant pasta and shitpaper madness? surely not.

  • surely not.

    This is the gen pop you're talking about. 100% to be a run on bog paper again if we go into full lockdown.

    Only difference is there will be less of them as probably 20% of the stockpilers from last time still have a garage full of the stuff.

  • Assuming there'll be a second lockdown when we need one requires a very optimistic view of this government's competence.

  • well, the lads down at Wellspark Supermarket are stocked for apocalypseses of any shape or form. Better get used to tinned callaloo again.

  • will another lock down come with all the attendant pasta and shitpaper madness? surely not.

    My money is on yes. We've seen multiple waves of shitpaper madness already in other countries such as Australia (ran out of bog paper again due to panic buying in June).

  • I sent a test Tuesday morning. How long do you reckon it’ll be til I get the results?

  • Which is what I expected but we are back to the school are stupid for sending messages saying "someone in your child's bubble" and not saying which child since having two kids at the same school is far from uncommon. I'm sure they will improve that soon though.

  • When there was a second lockdown rumoured here at the start of the second wave, people were quite restrained. No run on bog roll but the drive-thru offy had a huge queue.

    Lets hope sense prevails. Can't be doing without my double quilted shit rag.

  • I see your point now. Yeah.

    The only single rule that could be applied everywhere would be back to lockdown with no >mixing between households, pubs/schools closed, etc.
    no thanks

  • Even with the rule of 6 you can go to the pub with 5 people, then go mix with a different 5 people, then another 5 people on another pub visit, etc.

    I can't see how it is enforcable but this scenario is why minglin is now illegal I assume and Priti is being hard on minglin and the causes of minglin

  • Surely she's hard on counter-mingling and counter-minglers

  • drive-thru offy

    This is a thing? Selling booze to people actually driving a car seems questionable somehow (obviously I appreciate that the drivers don't crack open a can once it's handed to them!) Was it a covid response?

  • They've been in Luxembourg as long as I've lived here (9-ish years). Don't even need to get out out of the car; just tell the bloke to lob it in the boot and even takes out the empties. I've seen loads of people drinking whilst driving, don't think it's illegal here but then again, driving whilst drunk is still seen as not that bad unlike in the UK where you just come across as a dick if you do it.

  • Big in the US. Along with other such necessities as drive-through cash machines.

    It's mingling if you're going back and forth between different groups, of if a group of 12 meet and keep to tables of 6 but keep swapping people around.

    But there's nothing in the rules to stop you visiting 5 people in one pub, then going to meet another 5 people in a different pub, then another 5 people in another pub. No-one can tell you're mingling and the rule of 6 doesn't prevent this.

  • But there's nothing in the rules to stop you visiting 5 people in one pub, then going to meet another 5 people in a different pub.

    Geniunely thought they meant up to 6 people max for each person, not up to 6 people in a group.

  • No, it's just 6 people at any one time.

    There's a vague sentence on the guidelines about "limit how many different people you see socially over a short period of time" but no specifics.

    "
    sec 2. Seeing friends and family

    When seeing friends and family you do not live with you should:

    • meet in groups of 6 or less
    • follow social distancing rules
    • limit how many different people you see socially over a short period of time
    • meet people outdoors where practical: meeting people outdoors is safer than meeting people indoors because fresh air provides better ventilation
      "
  • They only reason they're delaying is to avoid worsening the economic fallout.

    This would be my only reason to believe we won't see a full countrywide lockdown again.

  • I assume and Priti is being hard on minglin and the causes of minglin

    I believe the term she would use is Anti counter minglin

  • yeah don't mingle at the counter!

  • My liver can't handle another full lockdown.

  • Opposite for me. My weight, health and drinking were much better during lockdown than when the pubs opened.

    Playing 5-a-side again means a 4 pint night and a 6 pint night back in my week. During lockdown I never really had anything more than a 3 can night.

  • I've just tried to book an online shopping delivery. Recently you can book an order a couple of days in advance, at the moment it seems to be booked up for the next week and a half ...

  • My liver can't handle another full lockdown.

    Ah the all inclusive holiday phase. I remember that well, eating and drinking all I wanted!
