Seems the cold weather effect is on its way. The increase isn't schools nor easing off restrictions. The pattern appearing now, upwards, is where we are heading until we introduce restrictions again.

Ministers shaming people back to the office is a wonderful idea.

Sorry Randy but a lockdown in some form is coming. Lets look at stories today

Ministers stating Christmas won't be affected amd of course families will be able to meet each other

The BBC leading on rises in cases in the older age groups.

Reports of hospitals starting to feel the pressure.

I'm afraid this has a whole sense of 'we've been here before'

Nothing has substantially changed in the last couple of weeks but these are now the lead stories, ring any bells from last October???

It's hard to see people putting up with another lockdown, and as we know, this government cares about the optics above all else. It will affect their polling. I can see some minor restrictions coming back, maybe.

People can lockdown if they want. Good luck selling that to the folks who've been told vaccination is the way out. I've had mine and won't be taking any notice of any potential lockdown rules. 😎

Believe me I don't want it and I would be like you tempted to tell the government to whistle, but I'm concerned about the sudden rush by the media to start highlighting rising cases, asking ministers about Christmas etc, it's almost as if they are being led my some political force (I suppose I could just be paranoid as Green Day might say)
