FOUR!!!!!

No, I am not playing golf, but would happily smack our leaders over the head with a wood or an iron, and use their teeth as a tee, their faces still attached.
Our wondrous government has seen fit (WTF) to put us in Tier 4, so we are now parcelled up with 78% of the country in the highest risk tier.
Let me tell you a little about where we live in Lincolnshire:
Our town has a population of around 12,600.
Our ‘council’ area had an infection rate of 124 per 100,000 last week (ONS figures)………. this gives our town about 16 infected people.
Skegness had 101 per 100,000 and with a population of around 20,000 that makes 20 cases.
And both of us are in Tier 4, grouped with London, the South East and all those other areas running rife with the virus that the little darlings are spreading having fled the city, thanks to being given 3 days notice before the new restrictions of the then new tier came into force.

If we were to travel Down South to visit family in Bournemouth
or visit our friends from the boat, Bristol, Cheltenham hospital, or my brother in Coventry, we would not leave Tier 4 on the journey. The worrying thing about that is it covers almost 300 miles, though I do have a legitimate excuse to go to Cheltenham for my cancer care.
I wonder if the police will be patrolling the roads and turning people back tomorrow before they celebrate New Year.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I hate to say it Di but it’s really bad where we are, ambulances having queque to get patients into A&E ( I know this is true) I honestly think the whole country should be in tier 5. Be safe stay home.💜💜💜

    Good Grief! I would have thought they would have put in travel restrictions to keep the little areas of low infection apart from those areas with a high rate instead of lumping you in with London!!!

    We are in level 5, which is our highest restriction level. We’ll be locked down for at least the next 4 weeks, but probably longer! Totally sucks!
