It’s not Christmas they need to worry about IMO.
In my years as a nurse, with kids, I would say to younger staff that I would do the Late shift on 31 Dec and the Early shift – even a Long Day – on Jan 1 to cover their shifts. They could then go out and party freely. But I wanted my Christmas day shift covered.
I never missed a Christmas day with my family.
I worked every 31 Dec / 1 Jan.
So while Boris and his clowns talk about Dec 25th as something sacred, I honestly think they have no clue.
Shutting down 31/21/2020 for pubs / clubs / bars etc?
Do Boris and the twats seriously believe that will work?
All kudos to the Police and NHS staff.
