    We were locked in March for over 50 days, but trying t make up for it now, and new total this year up to 49. Not addingmany as we are supporting locals, and visit mainly favourites when we have our away days.

    Living in a Tier 3 area now, I’m not going to visit a gastropub for a meal on my own, and most places I would want to visit have closed anyway. So who knows when I’ll drink in a pub again. Have a sinking feeling that it won’t be this year.

    You could visit a T1 or T2 area, except Glossop apparently,

    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Well, you can, but it's against government advice: "you should try to avoid travelling outside the very high alert level area you are in".

    OK, it's a "should" rather than a "must", but in a 'splainer published in Friday's Guardian (and presumably in other newspapers), it says that you "essentially take the level you live in with you, and all the rules of the level where you live apply even if you go into a lower level".

    So, supposing you have a genuine reason to travel to a lower level, you can't, while you're there, just pop into the pub for a quick pint if that would not be possible where you live. At least, I think that's what it means.

    But apparently travelling to Barnard Castle for an eye test still is still OK. If your first name happens to be Dominic.

    Not for the first time the Grauniad is talking drivel as a moments thought would show, taking the rules with you only (almost) works if you go from a higher risk area to a lower risk area not vice versa. Like so much of the Covid stuff it's made up as they, (politicians, journos, bloggers etc), go along. An alleged expert repeated the same take the rules with you nonsense on the Today programme on, I think, Friday, she was politely but firmly disabused of the notion by a second expert.


    The Government advice is silent about "taking rules with you" - it does say

    "In addition, we are advising people not to travel into or out of an area if it has been categorised as a very high alert level area. This is part of wider measures to help manage the risk of transmission. You can continue to travel into or out of very high alert level areas if you need to for work, education, to access youth services or because of caring responsibilities."

    Going to new pubs is part of my education Of course the Government advice contradicts itself all the time.


    Apparently you can avoid back council tax as well if you're pulling the strings of an advisor to Boris.

    I don't see how it's beneficial either way. If a person lives in a High risk area and they move to a lower risk area, all they do is increase the risk to those living in that area. If a person moves to a higher tier area, all they do is increase the risk to themselves and their loved ones.

    This was a Government information piece, and not written by anyone working at the Guardian. Sorry if I didn't make this as clear as I thought I had.

    But you are quite correct, what the Government's communications officer should have written was not that you "essentially take the level you live in with you, and all the rules of the level where you live apply even if you go into a lower level", but ..."only if you go into a lower level, and not when you go to a higher one".

    Best of luck taking your T3 rules to a T1 and insisting that the micropub you're in supplies you with the required "substantial meal".

    It is of course complete bollocks as usual.
