Assessed in one word:

folly

opening up the pubs is a mistake

Good picture. I think there is more to that woman than meets the eye...

She looks just like a showroom mannequin .

Good on everyone who went out and had a good time. Good to see people not taking any of the nonsense anymore

If you hate wearing a mask, you're going to really hate being attached to a ventilator.

Delusional ignorance is bliss. Until they get COVID-19.

Good to see people having fun

Exactly. It is up to each person to assess their aversion to risk and their own situation. If you don't want to go out, just don't go. If you are at risk for various reasons, isolate yourself if you want to. Leave the rest of society alone.

So far this "Pandemic" has killed a grand total of one person in 1,500 in the UK. It hasn't killed 1,499. Pretty weak pandemic if you ask me.

The media seems infatuated with the numbers of infected people.

I haven’t seen too many figures of people killed due to Covid-19 or the number of suicides due to lost jobs & no income because of Covid-19

How are you going to have a good old Saturday night punchup outside the pub with social distancing rules in place?

Have to wonder how many of these folks will end up like this poor gent....and those who have attended all the recent Trump rallies...

A Southern California man who tested positive for coronavirus after attending a party expressed his fear and regret a day before he died.

Thomas Macias, 51, 

You forgot to add this:

"Macias worked as a truck driver and suffered from diabetes, making him especially vulnerable to the virus. "

Which is why vulnerable people should take more care. There is no valid reason to lock up healthy people. If you want to stay home and hide-out, you are free to do so.

Are we going about this wrong? Maybe we should mandate the drinking of twenty or more beers every night, and then, when they collapse, drag people into positions six feet from each other, where they will remain for a couple of days.

Madness. Expect a spike in two weeks. Some of these reckless people will likely infect their parents and communities now.

If I was the health minister, I would recommend small groups of friends, with an abstention friend, to go to a forest or beach and take a few magic mushrooms, social distance and get fresh air.

crowded, sweaty pubs, where there is a high chance of a drunken post-lockdown one night stand is not the best idea as the SARS-CoV-2 is spreading wildly.

Good picture. I think there is more to that woman than meets the eye...

What legs!

Alcohol by its very nature makes you throw caution to the wind and make silly decisions. I get it, people need to socialize and have fun, but you know.... the pandemic. Just try not to kill grandma while you’re at it ay folks!

At first I thought the picture was from a Broadway or theater play. It's unbelievable that with this CoVid-19 going on so many people are not taking precautions, acting like it's just another summer night. Hate to think how many more cases there will be. And it's like that all over America too.

Is it really too much to ask that people curtail a bit of excess in favour of allowing more people to return to work?
