I have just seen this on the BBC website, what on earth is wrong with people.
We will never be out of this Covid nightmare until EVERYONE takes it seriously and abides by the guidelines!!!

They should be publicly named and shamed and I hope every single person was fined.

Here’s something to bash our heads against.
Form an orderly queue sad
Somebody said it’s like switching a light on in the blackout.
No, it’s more like organising a flipping Son et Lumière ?

Ye Gods!!

timetogo2016 Fri 22-Jan-21 10:53:16

I agree Smileless2012.
It may make people think twice.

...and then we hear of the ‘possibility’ of paying people £500 to quarantine if they ve had a positive test ?? They d love it wouldn’t they like a chicken pox party in my day
The mind boggles ?
Any body found at a large party like this should be confined to that building for two weeks with army personnel guarding the outside Limited food and drink once or twice a day would be handed in

I agree, BlueBelle, confine them where they're found. I also think that anyone flouting the rules repeatedly or seriously should have their name taken and be last on the list for treatment, if they become ill with Covid, and for vaccination.

Very selfish behaviour.

Involuntary manslaughter is defined as an unintentional killing that results either from criminal negligence or the commission of a low-level criminal act such as a misdemeanor. Involuntary manslaughter is distinguished from other forms of homicide because it does not require deliberation or premeditation, or intent.

LauraNorder Fri 22-Jan-21 11:10:04

Involuntary manslaughter assuming people die of covid as a result of the actions of these idiots.

400 people at the wedding event, it beggars belief.

NotSpaghetti Fri 22-Jan-21 11:20:45

What a great idea Bluebelle!
Hold them all together in a big field tent somewhere until all are deemed well (or not)...
Stop selfish people infecting everyone else.

Glad they got a hefty fine - and a criminal record.

Georgesgran Fri 22-Jan-21 11:21:29

As it was a wedding I hope there was a book for guests to sign - they should all be traced and fined and the new amount.
Not sure if it’s true, but word is the Minister (Rabbi?) in charge was a new one as his predecessor had died - from Covid!! You couldn’t make it up.

MissA I forgot there was a large community near you.

Is the school fully open or just for key workers children?

MissAdventure Fri 22-Jan-21 11:32:56

Fully open, as far as I know.
They believe they have achieved hard immunity within their community, as most of them have had the virus.

MissAdventure Fri 22-Jan-21 11:33:43

Herd. smile

GrannyGravy13 Fri 22-Jan-21 11:34:54

Oh my goodness, you really couldn’t make it up!!!!

Sunlover Fri 22-Jan-21 11:36:26

Every guest should be traced and fined. Such selfish behaviour!!
Our son had to cancel his June 2020 wedding and we are now thinking June 2021 won’t happen. Would never consider going ahead if the rules don’t allow it.

They don't integrate anyway, preferring to keep very much to themselves.
(Although the women and children use the buses en masse; no masks, of course)

I'm really surprised by this as they were hit really hard, very early, early on last year sad but I think they said the Jewish community in Stamford Hill, not specifically Charedi

Last night we had y zoom call with daughters and they have begged us to cancel our trip to UK for Easter. They said just too many people in the UK were behaving like absolute idiots and that it made our trip just too risky. Our grandchildren are so so angry about so many of their friends and families not obeying the rules.

We will be vaccinated soon, and hopefully will be able to see them all at the end of May for our 50th anniv. These XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXs are making all the efforts of rule abiding people nil and void and causing 10s of 1000s of deaths and suffering.
