100-150 deaths per day are already "baked in" by the recent case numbers sadly

More than that the rate its I'd have thought, given the feed through time and daily cases continuing to increase by 40% week on week. We are on course for around 475 deaths this week.

Before long that will translate to 250-350 a day using the figures we already have. But no lockdown, in fact even less lockdown.

Now it's everyone's personal responsibility to remain alive I guess they will turn the electricity and water off too.

Predictably, the Asda here is by far the most maskless.  It always was full of absolute skanks.

lol, bit classist. People from all walks of life have had their brains scrambled by the flip-flopping government guidance, not just tHe PoOr

Got an email just there outlining a nearish club's attempts to integrate testing for this weekend. here's the email: https://madmimi.com/p/e6e0a21

Man...  to try and add your own rules 2 days before reopening seems like a recipe for a lot of very angry people at the door. But like, all these places are just gonna have no staff on week 2 with the way things are going

Nice strawman but it's got nothing to do with whether they're poor or not.  The prices in Asda are on par with Tesco and Morrisons, and Aldi is cheaper still but it's only Asda that seems to attract people with poor hygiene, manners, etc, at least around here.

Surely it's more classist to assume I'm talking about the poor when discussing skanky people.

The BBC Proms will go ahead at full capacity this year, with audience members "strongly encouraged" to wear masks.

They will also be required to provide a negative lateral flow test, a positive PCR test or proof of double vaccination.

Promming tickets, where audience members can stand in the arena or gallery areas of the Royal Albert Hall, will also be available on the day of each concert...

The BBC says: "The safety of our audiences is our main priority and we are taking every step we can to open the Proms safely without social distancing."

Audience members over the age of 18 will be asked to provide a negative lateral flow test taken within 48 hours of the performance, or evidence of double vaccination provided via the NHS app or a letter provided by the NHS.

They can also offer proof of natural immunity based upon a positive PCR test taken within 180 days of the performance.

Under 18s will be asked for verbal confirmation from a parent or guardian that they have not received a positive test.

I hope it's made clear to potential audience members that anyone who had a positive PCR test within 10 days of the Proms should be isolating and not turning up at the Proms.

Classist was the wrong word, I’ll admit, but it’s unnecessarily snobbish to draw parallels/assumptions that “predictably” the type of people you’re describing would also by default be too thick or ignorant to wear a mask. Yeah sure you can say “but I saw it with my own eyes” but the reality is more a completely random draw of who’s making those decisions, and on that sense the point I made in my post still stands. Since being back at work in February and commuting across the city every day I’ve seen all manner of people from Canary Wharf city boy cunts to homeless people on the street either wearing or not wearing masks.

Re: ASDA etc. - from what I've seen, mask wearing and distancing has been consistently patchy (if that's not too much of an oxymoron) in pretty much every supermarket. Co-Op is generally one of the pricier ones, but I posted a couple of months ago about the idiot in my local branch brazenly gulping from a mug of tea as he browsed the aisles as if it was his living room.

I thought "skanky" implied lower class status in general? Like, even if it were someone who was wealthy the implication would be that their origin or their preferences are tacky in manner that's in line with the tackiness of some people in a lower class status.

I went to buy a car the other day and they were fucking desperate for me to over commit to some cunt wagon which would make my neighbours and colleagues build a fucking noose. I literally couldn't give less of a fuck, just my old car died, so I left with something which disappointed everyone but me.

Back at work after a couple of days off, and the stairs have been returned to normal traffic from the one-way system that was in use. Bit disconcerting the first time you go down a stairwell you’re used for the past year only to go up.

And almost everyone masked! Saw two women not wearing masks, everyone else was abiding by senior leadership’s request to keep using them when moving around the building. And those two could easily have had exemptions I guess (not that I saw anyone exercising an exemption when masks were mandatory…).

On the bright side, the North West and North East are showing signs of dipping in case numbers along with Scotland. Shame about the rest of England.

Last March locally Waitrose was the first one to get hit by bog roll boogaloo. All the tissues were gone too which means people must've been planning to wad them up and wipe their arses with them.

The one thing the middle classes can't stand is the thought of not being able to wipe their arse.

I remember telling my dad that he could always wash his arse with a flannel and soap if he didn't like it if he couldn't get hold of any bog roll and he sounded as if I'd just given him the secret of alchemy

That or Aldi.  I know the odd rich person (doctor who owns the practice etc) and they're the tightest people I know in terms of spending money on day to day stuff.

For what it's worth, I was in an M&S for the first time in ages the other day and couldn't remember the last time I saw so many people not wearing masks in a shop.

Speaking of supermarkets, has anyone else noticed gaps in shelves? The freezer in my local Co-Op was empty in places and apparently it's because lorry drivers keep getting pinged and have to isolate.

It's all going so well. SO well. The natural party of government are in charge.

The empty shelves are apparently one of the symptoms of the "pingdemic"*

No doubt the Tory press (egged on by the Tory party) will start calling for a total abandonment of any lingering half arsed efforts at containment, as a common sense solution to the ‘pingdemic’.

People are getting pinged because our hopeless government willingly allowed the virus to run riot, yet again. That’s the problem - not the app doing what it’s meant to do.

Supply chains for meat seem to be most at risk, additionally made worse by high vacancy levels due to Brexit: https://www.reuters.com/world/uk/uk-food-supply-chains-edge-failing-meat-industry-says-2021-07-21/.

This ^^^ is so obvious it feels daft to point it out, but the narrative that seems to being pushed is "blame the app". Not terribly surprising, though.

Yes, this from the article posted by steveh:

On Monday, England's car plants, railways, supermarkets and pubs warned the government that the COVID-19 tracing app, which has told hundreds of thousands of workers to isolate, was wrecking the recoveryand pushing supply chains to the brink of collapse

is annoying and stupid. "This fire alarm is making it awfully hard for people to work. Let's just disconnect it"

I hate this "we don't want government by central diktat" which is the excuse of ministers for getting rid of the mask mandate. So they don't want a diktat for keeping people safe but they want to ban removing statues. I really do think that people who still support this government should be ashamed of themselves.
