I wouldn’t get away with false ID as my local know me too well and they already have some of m info from accessing free Wi-fi, following on Facebook etc.

Whatever system pubs do or do not use, they will probably get scapegoated if things go wrong like we are seeing today with care homes.

These are banned, didn’t you know?
Apologies if I missed some of the thread but who/what is banned here? The article author? Medium? Articles that go against the grain?
I read this article the other day and it's certainly food for thought. How am I (as a viral lay person) able to dissect that that and agree/disagree. Immunology is his realm and we're generally told to listen to the virologists and epidemiologists.

Why are people unwilling to write their real name and number? Surely everyone wants to do their bit to help yet the amount of people saying 'im not giving my details' is huge.
It's very odd that some people have decided a lethal pandemic is a great time to start pretending they value their personal freedoms above those of people in other countries despite the fact they accept more surveillance in this country than in others and they didn't really care much about how their data was used illegally in the cambridge analytical scandal either. I do wonder how many of the people complaining about giving their name at the pub are the same people telling black people to suck up the fact they're disproportionately targeted by stop and search under the guise of "well what's your problem if you've got nothing to hide!?".

Harsh lockdowns imposed in Melbourne and Israel. 2 places which had an initial peak before getting the virus under some sort of control, and now it's way up again.

I don't know what the plan should entail, but constant fear of fairly strict lockdowns over and over again surely can't be the best we have? Is there anything to suggest what's happening in Melbourne, Israel and parts of Spain won't become common theme here? More 6-8 week lockdowns incoming in a couple months time?
