Tier 5

Recommended Posts

What is it? What will it entail? At first it seemed to be a joke that tier 4 had been invented out of thin air, now along comes another one. Bizarrely it seems to have been slavishly accepted by the masses as being inevitable already.

My predictions are:

- Closure of all schools

- Increase in fines for not wearing a muzzle

- Increase in fines for other rulebreaking

- Sunday trading laws scrapped as was always the plan a la Gideon

- Pubs forced to burn themselves down and/or forced to sell up to properdy developers innit

Anyone want to hazard a guess?

Fines for breathing

They won't be that harsh.

You will be allowed to breath in as much as you like.

The penalty will only apply to breathing out.

Tier 5 will be similar to first lockdown - only allowed out for one period a day (exercise/walk etc), no meeting anyone else outside your house, no travel outside area, working from home, all non-essential shops closed.

Essentially a remain at home order.

Probably all of those I would imagine.

There is a small part of me thinks that this could have the opposite reaction they want to achieve though.

I know a number of people, generally not contrarian, very straight and law abiding types who are close to breaking point.

Further restrictions will likely push them over the edge and they are likey to snap and go straight to the "fuck off, I've had enough of this" stage.

No point banning people going to work.

No fucker that I needed to contact was at work today, with many not being back until Jan 6th.

Bloody annoying. Have to bung stuff to Germany again as at least they reply to emails.

Most won't, when faced with criminal records, imprisonment, loss of employment etc.

I predict massive restrictions on freedom of movement and police roadblocks on major routes.   Ban on commuting.   Frankly it is terrifying.

Well not for the importation of third worlders I guess. For the rest of us, sure.

Oh no, another tier.  I'll continue to ignore just as I have since it started.

It’s that Tier 93 that reaaaally concerns me.

This is all horseshit but an interesting test for the British public. I won’t hold my breath (even if it is illegal to exhale!)

Back in may I visited my parents when technically illegal. Thankfully all my friends are rather free thinkers but still a few murmurs, "what if there's a chain and old Agnes gets sick" etc.

This Xmas though, after 9 months of house arrest in the north, most of them broke the rules one way or another. Any heavier removal of liberty likely to be similarly ignored.

The slippery slope argument works both ways, in restrictions but also non-compliance.
