Today was dubbed ‘Super Saturday‘. It was the first day with the slightly relaxed lockdown in force, where some (not all) businesses were now allowed to re-open, trying their very best to make up for their lost trade over the past three months. Examples included Pubs and Hairdressers who were allowed to trade from one-minute past midnight. Social distancing rules had also been relaxed from two metres to one metre… or as it’s been officially labelled: “one metre PLUS“.
I interpret this as ‘be careful‘, whilst others might use the relaxation as “back to (old) normal” 😷.
The police were geared-up too, with one report suggesting that there were more rozzers on duty today/tonight than a typical New Year’s Eve! 😮
OK, let the chaos and uncertainy begin as we now have hairdressers in masks and no queuing allowed at the Bar in Pubs! But at least everyone’s hair will look nice – and if it doesn’t, then we’ll all be too p****d to care! 😜.
EDIT: Sunday Morning
