POLLY : With this new “Rule Of six” now in place, as the daily number of +ve COVID tests rise, would you shop your neighbours to the police, as the government encourages us to do so?

Are you on Neighbourhood watch 🤣🤣🤣, and ready to shop your neighbours if they break the “Rule of 6”?

I thought it was the rule of sex but I must have misunderstood.

Interesting poll @Bev :smiley:

I think it’d change depending on each situation - if someone was having a party with 100+ people I’d react very differently to if a family of 7 was meeting up for a BBQ! 

I do know the new rules have impacted weddings, for example, as technically you’re allowed 30 people, but can’t have a group photo as you’d have to all stand in groups of 6… so venues are now postponing the events because the numbers are so conflicting! Tricky!

Top tip dont live close enough to anyone for them to be classed as neighbours.

If only, Mave, my dream white cottage away from everyone except animals 💕💕💕😂😂😂😂😂

Just kill off someone each time you meet, you can have 30 friends at funerals… 😈

my neighbours are like 50ft away from my boundary lines, but would I shop them? 

Nope  because if I need to borrow a cup of sugar, or can you please watch the kids while I nip to ASDA, thats not likely gonna happen in the future for me.

 

If I didnt like them, that would be a whole different kettle of fish  

My parents always used the phrase " you dont poop on your own doorstep" and I think the gov asking this of people will cause no end of hardships on people

The view out of my window’s a washing line, an oil tank, and a line of trees - my neighbours are safe, not much point reporting the cows.

Cows don’t have a rule of six, they have an udder rule instead...

Groan. 6 teats are not unheard of...

I am with Nataly on this one - I would way up the pros & cons and then decide.

Yes @Mightymidget I heard that phrase years ago too!

Isn’t it a matter of duty that we all do what we can to stop the spread? Shopping a neighbour could save a life?

(I know there’s no easy yes or no. I do find it a really interesting and difficult debate. Great thread and poll @Bev )

I think now it’s reached this critical level, and after hearing Whitty and Vallance speak this morning 👍👍👏👏, it’s all about doing absolutely everything now to save lives, and essentially working as one whole. So yes, the selfish non abiders, need shopping 👍😡
