Genuine question about the 6 people thing 16:58 - Sep 9 with 2001 viewsgordon

About a week ago there was a big push to get people back to offices to save e.g. sandwich shops - is it now the case that we should be avoiding offices if there's more than 6 people in them?

All that’s important is that there is a group of people to blame that isn’t the current government; be that work-shy office shirkers, people who aren’t supporting the economy enough by buying sandwiches or going out for dinner and drinks or in fact people who are socialising too much by, for example, eating sandwiches or going out for dinner and drinks.

The Government are literally morons.

2 days ago - You have to return to work physically to save pret
Today - now is crucial juncture so gatherings of six are the max

Also Hancock saying too many people want tests who don't have symptoms! Not entirely sure how he knows this!

If it's a socially distanced office then it's not a gathering. The end.

But why risk it if you can work from home without any effects? I don't understand why the Government has to opine on where and how people should work.

Which is fine as well. They'd stand accused of not helping out other businesses if they didn't at least try to encourage it.

work places are exempt so long as they are covid secure. and the thing everyone forgets is that the 6 people have themselves to be socially distanced is they are from different households.

And so as the loose-bowelled pigeon of time swoops low over the unsuspecting tourist of destiny, and the flatulent skunk of fate wanders into the air-conditioning system of eternity, I notice it's the end of the show

Because tos who have funded Johnson are the types who own office blocks and are fully aware of the hit to their pocket if companies realise those offices are not needed any more.

So the idea that this is about saving sandwich shops etc is so blatant nonsense

Just as the lies about getting kids back in school was about their education. If this bunch of shysters had the slightest concern about kids education they would not have cut education budgets consistently - and they would end the charitable status of businesses such as Eton, Harrow etc

The reason they want kids back is, so they can herd workers back into factories etc

Labour have had plenty of opportunities to stop public schools being charities.

Given that they're stuffed full of 'government shouldn't interfere in people's lives(as long as they're white, wealthy, male and heterosexual)' types it's very weird that they're now pulling this. Unless they have some kind of ulterior motive, of course.

It might just have been that Labour did not cut the education budget, in fact they did the opposite, so the need to address the charitable status of businesses was not as imperative as it is now.

I would say well done for a gallant attempt at 'whataboutery' - but I think a suggestion for you to think first might be more appropriate

Offices (and schools and universities) are excluded, because. Just because.

On the face of it the messages don't seem to be getting any clearer and less contradictory. I genuinely can't think of a reason why a non-social distancing office or school would be any safer than a socially distancing gathering of 7 people. Or even why a socially distancing office indoor would be any safer than a socially distancing group of 7 outside.

Offices are a ticking time bomb and will almost single handily feed a second wave. Trouble is not every office has the ideal footprint of typical modern building,

Government being pulled in all directions by different groups. Scientists and medics saying we need to be cautious. Commercial property investors, ideologue Tory donors and backbench MPs wanting things on the road back to normal asap (the first of those three before their rental income dries up). The public wanting this all to be over, but also scared of putting themselves at risk.

They're copping flak whichever way they turn, made hairier by now having someone able to ask awkward questions at PMQs. And they simply do not know what to do.

I'm guessing it's possibly because offices and the like have had to adopt more stringent safety and sanitisation measures than most people tend to have in their gardens or public parks etc... but like I say, I'm purely guessing at possible reasons.

Blair and Brown chose not to do anything about covid either - so it was not a valid point.

My comment was based in the context of the government claiming they had to make cuts to education

That was not the case with those two
