Great Reopenings around the world - compare and contrast with the UK

Regardless of the data, it looks like the Johnson junta is committed to a glacially slow reopening and thought it would be useful to compare and contrast the UK with other countries around the world to highlight how things are different in the UK. Obviously contributions from international dosbods would be very informative. Verifiable examples gathered would be helpful in real life discussions because normies tend to believe normality in the UK = normality around the world and contrasts, particularly with westernised countries, might help them see through the fog.

Yes, I've wondered this myself. For all of you immigrants to other countries out there..

My uneducated guess it that the USA will get out of this quicker than most.

They are dragging this out for as long as possible. They will give us a couple of months of, ‘new normal freedom’ before more tiers, followed by the mother of all lockdowns. All due to a resurgence in flu, combined with worrying mutations of the Rona that could put a catastrophic strain on an already overstretched National Hero Service. The foundations are already being laid for this by the media.

As I have said before: Tighten, loosen a little, tighten even more, loosen a little...

They can't admit to getting things totally wrong.  It all was all less serious than we were told. By stealth, the gov are sneakily changing their position, like we won't notice it. What happened to "Spitting Image"?

I think a few smaller economies may do well too.

Be interesting to see how the EE states do.

I'll put the whole episode down to being some sort of "moral panic", where people weren't rational, and nor were governments.

I am especially amused by the "Close the Border to dirty foreigners petty nationalism" exhibited by so called modern liberal states.

Well I think so, and despite the "open world" socialist ideals, we are quite happy to impose import restrictions on Wops, Krauts, Dagos, NigNogs, Spicks, Pakis, Frogs, Choges, Abbos,etc.

See how quick the governements turned overtly racist.

Well reopening looks like a short-term pipe dream here at the moment (schools closed and mandatory respirators became policy last week). I'll be surprised if we even get a slackening off in CZ before the end of April.

Looks like there is a fair amount of variance in European lockdowns, hopefully populations will push their national and local governments toward easing when they see neighbors living without restriction. Big lockdown protests last summer esp. Germany, hopefully the fire is still burning.

There was a protest in Prague on Saturday that lasted 12 minutes before the cops waded in.

Bearing in mind that we are at least five weeks away from returning to something like the situation before Christmas, I don't think we in the UK have anything to crow about.

I remember a story about that Police State you live in, a few years back. Apparently the secret police had black Tatra cars. The trick to get rid of them, was to drive the hired Skoda slowly up a steep hill. The Tatra would overheat, as it had an air cooled engine.

Since June last year Swissieland has been more open than the UK at all times, they never again closed primary schools, but, probably because they're running behind the UK in vaccinations, they're not opening up fast either - shops are open again now, but not bars, restaurants or public sports facilities. Ski stations are open.

Travel to other countries is nearly as restricted as the UK.

Saw a meme of someone rejoicing at being let out of a cage last week, with a larger cage encircling them.

Sums up Britain perfectly.

Poland is seeing a spike in hospitalisations and is beginning to re-introduce restrictions region by region.

I may not necessarily agree with it, but I understand the UK decision to start loosening the restrictions on the 8th - exactly 3 weeks after the top 4 groups got vaccinated. At least there's some logical reasoning behind it. However, if we accept that logic, then it feels like all other reopening steps should be compressed between that date and 2 weeks after the top 9 groups get their first shot (studies suggest it takes 3 weeks to build immunity in elderly but only 2 in rest of the population) and there should be no restrictions after that whatsoever, so back to full normal roughly from late April.

Just about all republican states are opening back up fully i the very near future ,democrats states such a New York California are still shut and double masking is still being pushed 

Italys bar and restaurant owners took it into there own hands over a month ago when 50k of them all opened up on the same night it`s been that way ever since

I started the thread to gather examples of other countries with little or no restrictions that dosbods can drop into everyday conversation / on other forums. The plainest contrast from UK point of view is between ourselves and parts of the US which are essentially like before times whilst we have tolerated this destructive shite imposed from above.

I'm going to dig up the protest thread later, missed loads going on around the world. The news blackout on resistance and forceful suppression by police and governments is intentional to skew public perception away from questioning what is happening.

Agree, I'd like examples that aren't US states. If I use those they'll be dismissed as Trump nutters. Probably counter-productive to use them.

The official 'line' is that they are taking a long time to ensure no step is rushed.

IMO though it's so that they can stretch out lockdown for as long as possible into the summer, giving us only about a month or so of almost no restrictions, enough for most people to have a summer holiday (in the UK) and to feel we're going back to normal.

During that month the stories of frightening new variants etc will gradually increase until sufficient panic has been induced to put us back into full lockdown in September.

All the filthy apparatus of oppression such as gags, antisocial distancing, travel bans etc will remain place and so it will be easy for them to lock down again in the early autumn.

For what reason, I am not sure; possibly the Great Reset or similar.

There are some problems with this, eg, the commitment to this being 'the last lockdown' etc but this will soon be forgotten by the sheeple.

Do you think there will be a mass emigration event this summer?

It wasn't a commitment. It was entirely conditional.
