Social gatherings to be banned: are the Tories using Covid to make themselves the fun police?

Closed: social gatherings for more than six people will be banned from September 14, with only a few exceptions – because the Tories are clamping down on fun.

Some people may be pleased by the introduction of a ban on social gatherings for more than six people after September 14 – but it won’t stop the Covid-19 spike currently raging through the UK.

All it will do is confirm that Boris Johnson and his gang are using the pandemic to stop anybody in the wider population from having a good time.

Just look at what the new rule covers:

A new legal limit will ban larger groups meeting anywhere socially indoors or outdoors, No 10 said.

But it will not apply to schools, workplaces or Covid-secure weddings, funerals and organised team sports.

It will be enforced through a £100 fine if people fail to comply with police, doubling up to a maximum of £3,200.

Where are people most likely to catch the disease? Schools, workplaces and on their way to and from them.

This measure will not stop the second wave at all.

But it will stop us having fun – and it will stop us getting together to complain about the fact that our country is being run by a moronic gang of entitled fat-heads.

A new dark age is descending on the UK.
