Christmas family celebrations in the UK will be broken up by officers if they break lockdown rules, police said.
West Midlands Police Commissioner David Jamieson said officers will investigate reports of rule-breaking over the holidays, and he fears that riots could be sparked by the enforcement.
"If we think there's large groups of people gathering where they shouldn't be, then police will have to intervene. If, again, there's flagrant breaking of the rules, then the police would have to enforce. It's not the police's job to stop people enjoying their Christmas. However, we are there to enforce the rules that the government makes, and if the government makes those rules then the government has to explain that to the public," Jamieson said.
The country is using three-tier labeling system to identify regional hotspots for coronavirus spread. West Midlands is currently under Tier 2 restrictions, which means people cannot mix with any other household.
Jamieson fears civil unrest could boil over in his region because of heavy-handed police forces enforcing harsh restrictions.
"We're sitting on a time bomb here. We're getting very near the stage where you could see a considerable explosion of frustration and energy. Things are very on the edge in a lot of communities and it wouldn't take very much to spark off unrest, riots, damage," Jamieson said.
John Edmunds, a government scientific adviser, said the idea that "we can carry on as we are" and have a typical Christmas season "is wishful thinking in the extreme."
"The only way that we can have a relatively safe and normal Christmas is if we take radical action now to reduce incidence at the very least in high incidence areas and keep the incidence low across the country by implementing a package of measures to reduce social contacts," Edmunds said.
Talk about the ultimate Grinches. “Here, then, you are under arrest for celebrating Christmas, and I am confiscating that turkey and all those presents.”
This not about the Chicom Flu anymore.
It’s about social control. Europe has become anti-Christian. Heck, it seems like the Catholic Church under the current pope has become anti-Christian.
They are using this as excuse to suppress Christianity.
I wonder if they are enforcing anything like this against Moslems?
Not if they want to keep their heads attached to their bodies................
It's not the police's job to stop people enjoying their Christmas. However...
...the real reason for Brexit was that the EU wasn't working hard enough to turn into a Moslem entity.
All the Whos in Whoville will probably just go along with it. London has an Islamic mayor, after all.
I keep asking myself why people in my family got dead in WWII defending these totalitarian thugs.
Especially when we already bucked them off 240 years ago, when other people in my downline managed to kill more of them they did of us. Same thing again in 1812.
Really time to just let this island of psychopaths sink into the drink and stop worrying about whether the Russians or the Germans or the Muzzlims will take over. At this point, it really doesn’t matter. Anything might be an improvement.
How about some bait.
Park some extra cars out in front.
Play Christmas music, medium-loud.
Flash some red and green lights.
But . . . No one home.
What might happen?
Christian persecution in the latter days as proclaimed by Jesus
All copies of “Love Actually” confiscated by the armed police, special branch, and the Sweeney.
Boris, if you allow this method to happen in a widespread fashion, (Home Invasions by Police for COVID violations) most of England will despise you from now on.
The Brits have very long memories when it comes to politics.
Optimistic Projection: When Trump re-opens America for Christmas, Johnson will follow in the UK ... he won’t be able to resist the pressure no matter how frightened he may be.
Christmas celebrations are on shutdown warning . . . no word yet on Ramadan celebrations
Boris the buffoon needs to be run out of town. Hes caving the science medical fascists, and bungling Brexit. His base is on the verge of revolt. A colossal disappointment.
By "incidences", I assume they mean cases or new cases.
Somehow the scientific experts think a new case is bad. But how do they find out about a new virus case? By testing, that's how. The more you test, the more new cases there will be. That's because the virus is dead, an inert particle that is not going to die or go away. The longer you don't confront it, the longer it will be around.
So increasing the lockdowns and the severity of the lockdowns will do NOTHING to stop the spread of the virus. It only puts off the inevitable, that the population is going to have to face the virus head on eventually.
And neither will wearing masks stop the virus. On another thread on FR today, the theory that masks protect you from the virus is debunked.
The CDC said last week or the week before, that 85% of those people who contracted the covid, wore a mask all of the time or most of the time. IOW, they are basically useless.
Almost all new cases are asymptomatic or mild, not requiring hospitalization. Unless you are over 65-70 years old, the virus will likely not affect you. If it does, you have a 99.9% chance of recovering and a 99.9% chance you won't die.
Even the death rates are suspect now with reporting that medical facilities get extra money for reporting covid deaths. Everything from hangnails, to heart attacks, to auto accidents are being reported and coded as covid deaths. Bogus. People who test positive for the virus but die of other medical issues, are being reported as covid deaths. People who actually die from the virus itself and only the virus are being misreported to make the impact of the pandemic look worse.
So why all of the anxiety, panic and fear? I am a reasonable man and I can guess why. It is politically motivated and meant in the US, to make Trump look bad and get him out of office for doing such a poor job.
But what is going on in the UK? The same political weaponization of the virus to use it against Boris?
The leaders in these other countries are getting their marching orders from China. They are both paid and blackmailed by China— carrot and stick— to lock down to help drive the hysteria about the dread virus ‘rona so that governors shut down polling places so that Team Red has to wait in long lines when polling places are consolidated.
It is also easier for bullies to threaten Team Red if there are fewer polling locations that the bullies have to cover.
I'm just sayin'.....
