£500 for Covid-Roll up.Roll up

Seems a bit odd! Do they want to shorten vaccination queues, vaccination costs, or future government social security expense? Hmm.

To me it's a new panic scheme, but for what end?!

 

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

I think they just want to get more people who should be isolating, to do so.

Re: £500 for Covid-Roll up.Roll up

Might have been discussed but from what I have read it is just at the idea stage.....

There are enough crackpots about that would go out of their way to get COVID just to get their hands on £500.

@Luzern 

To what end?

Seems obvious to me.

Go to a party and get Covid, pay £200 fine and you're still £300 up.  😈

Re: £500 for Covid-Roll up.Roll up

Yep I pretty much agree with @gleneagles there - people will go out of their way to get it for a monkey. (Before the PC Brigade tell me off, that is cockey slang for £500!).

I am still travelling a bit, just keeping it to a minimum.

@Alex I cannot believe any sane individual would want to risk an uncomfortable and possibly painful death for the sake of £500 which they may not survive long enough to spend - but maybe there are brain-dead individuals out there who would.Crazy

Yep I agree with you @jab1 

As my dad said, "Once you get older, you realise that common sense is not very common". A younger me laughed it off, but now I realise how correct that is.

I was just about to reply to 198kHz to check the small print*** until I came to your post!  Cheesy

Edit: *** £800 for parties with more than 15 in attendance I believe.

I would use other words to describe them but such words are censored on this forum.
