COVID CHRISTMAS: Is relaxing the rules worth it?
Crunch talks about how Covid restrictions will be lifted so Britons can see their loved ones at Christmas have been continuing this morning, with hopes the devolved nations will agree on what measures should be in place. It comes as the Prime Minister set out the new tier system for England and warned of ‘hard months ahead’. The government is keen to agree the Christmas rules with the devolved nations, but should the same approach be taken with the tier system with local leaders? Do you think the restrictions over Christmas should be the same for everyone regardless of local infection rates, or should the rules change on a regional basis? Are the new freedoms of the tier system like getting fans back into football stadiums worth the risk of prolonging tougher measures? Or would you rather see stricter rules now for a shorter period?
