DMcG BS: Brexit & other UK political topics (2814* d) RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics 28 Nov 21

I think the new restrictions are too weak, personally, but in one sense I am relieved at a personal level.

I follow Northern Ballet fairly closely. Some years ago, I went to see their opening night of a brand new ballet called 'Geisha'. It very next day, all the theatres were closed because of covid restrictions, so this turned out to be the only public performance ever.

On Thursday I am due to see their new production "Merlin". This has has a few performances now - maybe 10 in about three theatres. I thought it unlikely but not impossible theatres would be shut down again in this announcement. Since they are not, I will at least get to see it.

All that is very selfish, though. Keeping such mass gatherings in enclosed spaces is not a good idea at all with any variant, and with one that may evade the vaccines (to some extent) the trade off between risk and economic damage changes. So I think it quite possible we see such restrictions again after Christmas. The government will strongly resist doing it before if it possibly can.
