Who would have thought that the "Keep Britain Free" astroturfed movement would hinder the response to a new outbreak?

I'm enjoying how people are racing to return from France today, to avoid the completely unenforced quarantine that starts tomorrow.

It's clever how the strand of RNA only activates itself after 4 a.m. tomorrow upon detecting the crossing of the channel.

They genuinely seem aggrieved at any mitigation measure.

I ignored the rules throughout. Have never worn a masked or socially distanced. Hugged all my family and friends, had them stay over, been down the pub countless times, provided fake details. It was heavenly
I have just posted that story underneath

It’s enforced by social disapproval, assuming you were foolish enough to have let anyone know where you were going.

Unfortunately as has been observed everyone knows that all teachers have been in France, so there’s no chance of them bluffing it out.

Well who cares about children's education as long as the tourism industry scrapes by for another summer.

So now the government has closed all the discos and dance halls until at least the 7th of September with no regional exceptions.

This rule also includes that masks must be worn, even outside, between 6pm and 6am. You'll understand why if you've seen photos from town movida areas, full of young people young peopling all night, but of course there's the predictable OH so CoviD ISn'T CoNtAgiOuS DURIng the dAY ThEn response.

According to some posters on the technicians FaceBook page, some schools are banning the wearing of masks.
And remember that if you botch the exit, the carnival of reaction may be coming to a town near you.

In the UK? I'd love to see the risk assessment for that.

The techs are indeed asking for the RAs. I hope they're also contacting their unions but a depressing number (particularly in private schools) aren't members.

And of course it's a lot of people out of work in a sector worth €4 billion* to which well we did try to let you open but it didn't work did it? and also wait a minute don't you only usually declare about €16 million per year?

So either they run on very tight margins or they are not entirely honest about their earnings.

It's been noticed in Milan that pubs and bars somehow earn about twice as much money on evenings when the Guarda di Finanza is in the area doing checks.

You know how people who are opposed to masks tend to be right-wing? And how they cite Sweden as the land of COVID-19 freedom, where people don't have to wear "muzzles"?

It turns out that there is just one Swedish political party that advocates the wearing of masks. Step forward, the anti-EU, anti-Muslim, generally nasty right-wing c.nts known as the Sweden Democrats!

The fact that mask wearing got politicised guarantees a level of non-compliance. For some, wearing a mask makes you look like you support the other lot. It's like demanding Rangers fans wear a Celtic shirt.

In North Wales for a week of holidays, we went into the supermarket today for supplies and over 60% were maskless and seemed totally unconcerned. Eek.

Eek indeed. At the other end of the scale, we went into central Cambridge yesterday for the first time since February. I reckon people were ~95% masked up inside the main shopping arcade.

We live in West London, high mask usage in all the shops there.

West London isn't homogeneous then. Asda in Park Royal got maybe 50% with masks. (That's "with" rather than 50% wearing one properly.)

In my part of the Black Country it’s pretty good. >90%

I went to Telford last weekend (for work, not by choice) and in the main shopping centre there it was maybe 60% compliance. Most of the non-compliant people were under 30.

I’m in a very very middle class but if Chiswick. Is there a breakdown anywhere on the demographics of compliance?

In Lincoln it seems like everyone is wearing masks in the supermarkets. I haven't been in the town centre.

Nottingham it's sporadic. There's definitely a peer pressure thing going on with the tram though, people look at how many people on the tram are wearing a mask before deciding whether to bother with theirs. Seen too many people stuffing masks in their pocket as they board!

Likewise in my part of Derbyshire.

There were several ( maybe 5%) I saw with their noses out though in the supermarket
