Coronavirus punishment: Britons who refuse to stay indoors could soon face £1000 fine

THE CORONAVIRUS infection rate has jumped to its highest level since March and now the Government plans to make a self-isolation law to punish those that leave their homes.

The new approach will mirror the quarantine measures for those returning from holidays, where police can issue a fine of up to £1000 for those breaching the quarantine. 

Plans are also underway for a hotline for people to report those that break quarantine rules.

As coronavirus cases increase officials are also planning to increase spot checks on those who are under the 14-day quarantine.

"FINES" seem to be their only weapon against civil disobedience. 

I guess they will get compliance with the rule of 6 and any curfew they implement with the threat of some not-insignificant fines.

This weekend seems like the calm before the storm, has anyone lost their sh*t over this new round of enforcement? Or know of anyone else who has? 

Not long to go until the rule of 6 kicks in, right in a 27 degree heatwave on monday.

Coronavirus: Nottingham house party host fined £10K

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-54131030

Nottinghamshire Police said officers attended the house party after Nottingham City Council officers were met with "hostility from the organiser" at 22:20 BST.
 
About 50 people were found at the address, who were all ordered to leave, and the host was issued with the fine, it added.
 
Ass Ch Con Steve Cooper said: "This party was a clear example of a householder who deliberately flouted the rules without a care for anyone else and as a result we have used the full powers we have to deal with this.
 
"Under current rules we can issue fines to anyone hosting gatherings of more than 30 people which can result in fines of up to £10,000. And now we are on the eve of rules becoming even tighter so there can be gatherings of no more than six."

The media will be cajoled into reporting a few exceptions and calling people reckless and irresponsible for having the family over for some 1-off meal together.

To be fair they are going to need big fines and a serious risk of detection..  these are the most nonsensical rules yet and people WILL flout them.

It is right fair and just, that the fine for breaking 14 day home isolation in the uk is matched equally with the fine for breaking quarantine after returning from abroad (£1000) 

So we have parity of penalty for what is basically an identical offence.

I notice that you selectively quote and missed the bit about Boris being urged  to scrap the ridiculous quarantine laws or risk mass unemployment.

It's rather different to a a family gathering, Mr @WorkingPoorThis seems like a commerical rave. Nobody has 50 mates.

20 mates and then xx ++ find out is quite common, anything up to hundreds turn up to gatecrash in extreme cases, just think how scaleable and fast social media is compared work of mouth / telephone of yore.

Coronavirus latest news: Snitch on your neighbours to police if they break 'rule of six', says minister

The British public should report their neighbours to the police if they host gatherings of more than six people, a minister has said as new restrictions to contain Covid-19 come into force.

The so-called 'rule of six' now legally limits social gatherings to six people both indoors and outdoors in England and Scotland, but indoors only in Wales.

Kit Malthouse, the policing minister, said "the option is open" to members of the public to phone the police non-emergency number to report concerns about neighbours breaking the rule of six, telling BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "If they are concerned and they do see that kind of thing then absolutely they should ring the number."

Guidance on how police officers should enforce the new law has not yet been issued to forces, with Mr Malthouse saying it will be circulated by the College of Policing in "the next few days". 

Britain's largest police force, the Metropolitan Police, said in a statement on Monday that officers would be patrolling public spaces to disperse large groups. 

But Mr Malthouse added: "What we're hoping is that we will see for the rule of six what we saw for the initial lockdown, which was extremely high compliance from the British people."

Martin Hewitt, the chair of the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC), said fines for breaching the rules on large gatherings would be an important way of enforcing the latest law limiting social gatherings.

 

Nationwide curfew 'obvious next step if new restrictions fail'

A national curfew would be an "obvious next step" for containing coronavirus if new lockdown rules fail to reverse the current increase in the spread of the disease, ministers believe.

Pubs and restaurants in local lockdown areas are already closing at 10pm, and the measure could be rolled out more widely amid fears that people tend not to adhere to social distancing rules when they consume more alcohol.

The proposal would affect greater numbers of young people, who have been blamed for a recent spike in infections.

fines only work against the middle and upper lower classes.

It is a fixed penalty so if they dont pay they issue a summons to court

Where they will be criminalised with a criminal record.
