    In an office of 5 people 2 are at home today because their kids, at different schools, are in a class with someone that tested positive.

    2500 UEFA VIP officials are going to be allowed in to the Euro Final without having to do the 10 day quarantine.

    Yet we can’t visit amber countries without having to quarantine on our return.
    It’s an absolute disgrace that these double standards are allowed.

    Rules are rules.

    And they are for us, not them.

    I'm not sure if it's actually true or not, but I have seen it stated a few times that parents are not allowed to attend school sports days, but 60,000 spectators will be allowed into Wembley for the final.

    Perhaps, if there was just some way to monetise schools sports days?

    Says all you need to know about the government. I don't think they should relax quarantine for anyone.

    Anyone else still feel like they'd rather we broke the rules, just so they can blame the fallout on us? It does feel like rubbing your faces in it a little when some events can go on but not others, Download festival was on last weekend for example albeit a much smaller crowd.

    Yes, tells me the they believe the disease is such a minor insignificance that the lockdown extension is nothing more than a freedoms power grab. Restrictions are for the poor not wealthy. It stinks:angry:

    Can't the school sell tickets, get some sponsorship and see if Sky will televise it?

    Following the rule of 6 and social distancing, at it's very best.

    Ascot was last week. I heard they gave free tickets to the local community by which I presume they mean quennie and all her entourage of kronies.
