Aside from Christmas, the only difference with Tier 4 seems to be non essential shops closing. Is that really going to make such a difference?
There are other differences too.
Now only allowed to meet up with one other person outside in public space, not "rule of 6" as applies in Tier 3, and if I'm reading the rules right, you can only do this for exercise, not for social reasons.
So outdoor sports now only permitted within single household or 1 individual meeting 1 individual from another household. Many outdoor attractions also therefore now closing.
Also "personal care" stuff like hairdressers, etc, also need to close.
I'm not sure which rules exactly have led to this, but lots of local outdoor events - Christmas light trails, etc - have closed because of Tier 4. Not sure if this is because of the general "stay at home" message, or because the no household mixing would cause problems, or if there's some other rule that requires it that I've missed.
