After fragmenting throughout the entire Covid-19 pandemic to date, all four nations that make up the UK have now agreed a common Christmas policy.
Three households can meet and mix through the five days of 23-27 December, and travel between nations will also be open throughout the period.
Somewhat in keeping with recent Government policy however, hospitality has once again been singled out for ‘special’ treatment.
Gov.uk states: “Each Christmas bubble can meet at home, at a place of worship or an outdoor public place, but existing, more restrictive rules on hospitality and meeting in other venues will be maintained throughout this period.”
So, if visiting a pub on Christmas morning for example, only some members of the three households that left the house, can imbibe, and will need to consume a substantial meal before Christmas lunch back at home. What the others then do to occupy themselves…
This seems not only peculiar but almost vindictive.
