And yet another so called celebrity idiot who for some strange reason think that the law does not apply to them and that they are totally immune from catching anything. A total full blown 100% dickhead.

The party was before the lockdown rules came in for greater manchester.

Clusters of Covid-19 cases have been identified in Kirkstall and Harehills.


Leeds City Council is urging people living in these areas of the city to maintain social distancing, avoid large gatherings, wash their hands regularly and get tested if they show symptoms of the virus.

Mobile testing centres have also been set up at Kirkstall Leisure Centre and Fearnville Leisure Centre in Oakwood.

The council says "further steps may need to be considered" if case numbers continue to increase in Kirkstall and Harehills.

People in other parts of the city are also being told to remain cautious, as the city's seven-day infection rate has increased considerably from 4.1 cases per 100,000 people to 13.3 (as of August 5).

More than 3,900 people have tested positive for Covid-19 in Leeds during the pandemic and the virus has claimed over 700 lives in the city.

Cllr Judith Blake, leader of the council, said: “There has been some excellent work across Leeds these past few months which, together with a tremendous sense of community spirit, has ensured we have stayed ahead of the virus.

And if you toned the language down that could pretty much be a genuine Sturgeon briefing.
As I think I've said before, I might disagree with her on pretty much everything else but her communication on this has generally been far clearer than what's been coming from Westminster.

Coronavirus: Only half of Britons say they would get a vaccine, poll reveals

Younger people were twice as likely to reject a vaccine than 55 to 75-year-olds, the study shows.

Just over half of the UK would definitely get a coronavirus vaccine, with "damaging misperceptions" affecting potential uptake, a poll has revealed.

Only 53% of Britons would be certain or very likely to get vaccinated against COVID-19, researchers at King's College London (KCL) and Ipsos Mori found.

One in six (16%) said they would definitely not get a vaccine or it would be very unlikely, the poll of 2,237 people between 16 and 75 showed.

The study found that people were more likely to reject the vaccine because of their attitudes and beliefs about science and authority, rather than reasons related to coronavirus itself.

Young people were twice as likely not to want a vaccine, with 22% of 16 to 34-year-olds saying they would not have one - compared to 11% of 55 to 75-year-olds.

People who believe face masks are bad for people's health and do not reduce the spread of the virus were among those who disagreed with a vaccine.

Of those who said they would not get one, 34% believe the government is trying to control the population by getting them to wear masks and 36% think "too much fuss" is being made of the pandemic.

...No problem, offer them a vaccine and if refused get them to sign a waiver from all NHS treatment relating to CV

Do you get the feeling that in some people's eyes the government can't do right for doing wrong?

One minute people are moaning about the way the CV deaths are recorded and when the gov looks into it and realises that Public Health England have been recording deaths differently to the rest of the UK and the figures are then adjusted to bring parity, people (the same in some respects) moan then that the government are 'fiddling' figures.

Same as them who said we lockdowned to late and came out of lockdown to early. But now moan about being in a recession
