The government has thrown a blanket over the NE. Here in Northumberland we have been included in the local lockdown despite having had only 40 new cases to Newcastle’s 150 (N/land is huge. Ncle is tiny by comparison).
Yet 35 miles down the road from us Carlisle United will allow 1000 fans in tomorrow. I could get a test just a few miles away in Hexham without too much bother, yet elsewhere people are being directed 100 miles away!
The whole system is a complete mess and each “additional measure” makes it messier still.
A second national lockdown? It’s not going to happen is it? So expect more muddling through, with the public and professionals alike becoming more and more frustrated.
