The headlines are full of pictures of crowds as the UK launched into its new found freedom following PM Johnson’s lockdown restrictions removal.
Words fail me, but pictures speak volumes as the masses play Russian roulette with their lives.

Not all places were descended upon by idiots and at least this pub had a brilliant idea to keep social distancing. Good times, socialising with friends, entertainment and relaxation is still on the cards, but common sense needs to be included in today’s current circumstances.

Matt Hancock (UK Health Secretary) is on a different planet to the rest of us saying that the majority behaved responsibly. Not according to police reports of unrest, drunken fools and fights in the big cities. Definitely not if these pictures are anything to go by, and as for the 1 meter social distancing if 2 is not possible? These are mere inches!!
Here, walking the dog at 10pm, there were few people about, and at 11pm we could hear off-key singing in the distance, but the nearest pub remained shut (only opened two days a week anyway).
I grant you not everywhere is like London/Manchester/Bristol/Leeds etc, and there are sensible people out there, or at least they try to be, but think of their age group.
Compare the ‘brilliant idea’ picture to the top ones.
The scenes at Bournemouth beach recently were horrendous, and one young adult male told a reporter that he felt perfectly safe and wouldn’t get the virus as he didn’t know anyone who had it.
OK then, for like minded people:
It’s not necessarily your friends you have to worry about, but do you know EVERYONE in that crowd? Do you know where they’ve been? Who they’ve mixed with? And who those they mixed with mixed with? Domino effect and a much wider picture.
Track and trace? Really? Got a tome handy in case the memory on your phone get filled?
