People being taxed for not being patriotic enough or having a big enough poppy.

These days you say you're English and you get a tax cut.

Rishi Sunak's Eat out to Help Out scheme could make a comeback this winter
The economy rebounded significantly whilst the scheme ran across the UK

Covid cases also rebounded significantly due to the scheme.

Quote
And areas with a higher rate of uptake - both from restaurants and consumers - experienced a sharp increase in new Covid-19 infection clusters a week after the scheme started, with 8-17% of the newly detected clusters attributed to it.

Meanwhile, areas with high uptake saw a decline in new infections a week after the scheme came to an end on August 31.

Surely indoor dining is one of the worst things to encourage during a pandemic? Why doesn't Sunak limit it to takeout only?

Economy is tanking as Covid cases increase and lockdown measures required.
Easing of lockdown as Covid figures are under control.
Let's stimulate the economy by eating out with Rishi.
Covid cases rise as a result of scheme.
Economy is tanking as Covid cases increase and lockdown measures required and so on and so forth.

I hope Rishi accidentally eats out a bucket of acid but tries to front it out for the cameras, spluttering "Cor these chicken wings are a bit spicyyy!" even as his lips melt.

Also, surely people buy the same amount of food whether they work from home or in an office?

Yes but they don't spend as much on it because the law that says you've got to buy shite overpriced sandwiches from Pret for your work lunches doesn't apply to home workers.

It does feel a bit weird that Strictly Come Dancing is still able to go on.

Having just watched This Morning, apparently lots of them now have to isolate, the judge Mabuse has rushed home to Germany for some kind of emergency, and they don't know how Adams' partner Natya got it in isolation. I expect postponement or something.

But what about national morale? We need Strictly and it doesn't matter how many have to die to get it.

Why not just repeat a previous year's run of Strictly and wait until 2021 to have it live? It's not like people are going to riot if there is no Strictly.

"50,000 dead, should we cancel the dancing show where people can't wear masks or socially distance and sometimes touch hands?"

"No, the masses like it. We can't have them watching something on BBC 1 that makes them think"

"OK. Hey, Laurence Fox is interested in playing the lead in Conservative P.I. a show about a private detective who investigates crimes committed by the anfia woke liberal communist Corbynite Remainer fascist elite."

"Excellent. Let's have six episodes."

Apparently an Ireland footballer has tested positive today, after playing the full game against England last night (was it?), but no one has to isolate because there was no close contact between him and any member of the Ireland or England teams or staff.

Fuck Eid al-Fitr, fuck Diwali, but let's make sure we pull out all the stops for Christmas.

We get the message.

Should there be a separate COVID racism thread?

Just got this glossy leaflet through the door. I thought it was from the government at first. Who the fuck's paying for it?

Oh, shut my mouth, i got one of these things today. I wonder if the print files are doing the rounds and folks are priniting them locally or whether it is some rich jerk. Anyone else had one yet. THis is in Kent.

^^^ the problem with this kind of shit is that clearly the people pushing it are not thinking about it for one moment. Every government in the world has clubbed together to exaggerate the threat of this thing to...shut their own economies down, stop their people doing the things that make life worthwhile[1] and make themselves look like inept chumps. Makes total sense!

At least 9/11 trutherism made sense. If anything, it made more sense than what actually happened.
 1. Except posting on the internet, eh readers

In America, people are paying others to wait in the COVID testing line for them.

What are these people doing while they pay someone else to stand in the COVID testing line for them? They aren't getting to the front any quicker, they just aren't standing in the queue all that time.

French police have fined a man who left his home with a written lockdown declaration stating he was out to “smash a guy’s face in”.

Daniel Kerdraon, the local police chief, said his officers had discovered the 39-year-old lurking behind a car late on Friday evening.

"When asked what he was doing he explained that he was waiting for someone to ‘smash their face in’ … he had the written form with his real name and the time he had left home – 10.15pm – but we told him his reason for going out was not valid."
What's French for Legend Gary?

I do have sympathy for business owners given the lack of compensation they are receiving for losing trade from the government that can afford millions for hackers, but that doesn't justify repeatedly opening during the lockdown.

On the video, she is heard saying: "I don't consent to any fines, so it will just be returned to sender."

She had also displayed a poster on the salon door which refers to the Magna Carta and says the shop is "under the jurisdiction of common law".

Imagine if one of her customers had their hair cut and said "I don't consent to paying you for this haircut, under the jurisdiction of common law. If you don't like it, read your Magna Carta". She'd be rightly furious and get them arrested.
