Well, that was inevitable. You just had to look at the pictures of idiots gathering in large groups over the weekend to know "and this is why we can't have nice things."

A lockdown is awful, but it's also necessary. If we can't police ourselves... in come the actual police. This is our own fault as a country for not being able to follow common sense...

I heard Nicola Sturgeon say something the other day along the lines of 'if life feels normal right now, you're doing something wrong.'
Preferred cinemas:
Vue West End, Cineworld Haymarket, Odeon West End, Odeon Leicester Square, Empire Leicester Square, Cineworld O2, Cineworld Shaftesbury Avenue and Odeon Panton Street, followed by anywhere in central(ish) London.

I was wary about thieving of passes but I didnt figure someone would assault a nurse to get it. new levels. not sure how ruffians are even going to pass for the nurse in the ID pic, massive fail.
