    I wonder how many people are watching - 20-25m I bet.
    Maybe not that many, I think everyone’s already known everything since 4pm

      I don't like to go OUT-OUT. Never have. But I have reached an age now (almost 40) in which I engage in private sit-ins. I probably should also disclose that I dislike alcohol in any shape or form. I never drink, no beer, no wine, no hard liquor. I only drink on New Year's Eve. When I was younger, I did have those party nights at the Reeperbahn and what not... in the early morning hours, trying to get home, looking a mess and barfing into hedges. NO more of that. I've been there, seen it all, done it all and now I'm done with that part of my life.

      What I can gather from my students at school, going to a club or to a bar is very unpopular in general. People are meeting in private settings, get wasted and that's it. But whatever you do might be affected by your location too. I'm living and working in the most rural area you could think of - when you envision Northern Germany. We have cows, fields, farmland, the occasional Edeka and that's it. But it's the best life in the world.

        Major events are set to return after 21 June and her concert is the end of July so unless that date moves it should go ahead.

          • Appreciate we should judge politicians on their policies and not their looks, but Boris really needs to comb his hair. He looks so unkempt. Very unprofessional. A man who can't be bothered to look after himself shouldn't be trusted to look after the rest of us.

              • I believe this pandemic will end surprisingly quick... like it started... so, I see no issues with having concerts returning in June / July.

                  In hindsight I dont know if it was wize announcing four months worth of stuff altogether. I think it is better in small chunks as it happens, but lets see how it pans out.

                  you will be counting the days until your coiffing !!!

                    • @Thombus: Aren't barbers forbidden in the UK at the moment as well? I rather trust an uncombed Johnson than a perfectly styled Merkel during a time when 'normal' citizens are not allowed to get styled professionally at the moment.

                      @stevyy: So it's a case of 'Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.' with you? I think many people calm down once they reach their 30s and 40s. I mean, it's been the same with your favorite act Robbie Williams once he met his wife. Guess I can't relate to that as I never had such a 'wild period' in my life, but what's important is that you're happy with the choices in life you make and don't let inner inhibitions control them.

                          Boris has delivered what he promised he would announce - a roadmap out. He made it very clear dates can move but even if they do, we are probably looking at the same action plan. Aside from the people who think the plan is too conservative in its timescales, I don’t think anyone is necessarily unhappy with the announcement.

                              I dont know how anyone can possibly think complete normality by june 21st is remotely conservative. If it works out like that it will be incredible I think

So in countries where there is a war and the media writes about it and the government talks about it, they are "spreading fear" and that will be enough reason for you to not believe them...

                                Seasonal flu has almost disappeared? Where do you live? Here, children who have seasonal flu are not allowed to go to school, we have them weekly who stay at home because of it. Also, lots of people get tested every week and most don't have covid, which means they have seasonal flu.

                                You probably also believe the curfew will never end, politicians drink blood and pizza restaurants hide children in the cellar...
                                There's a difference between reporting about wars and fearmongering about how deadly and dangerous a virus killing less than 1% of the infected is.
                                I see you haven't bothered looking at statistics about the flu either, your arguments being "seen that so I'm right". Sounds like a pointless discussion...
                                Now I know why you're so scared of everyone who thinks differently and has the courage to challenge dubious news - your propaganda sources have already created labels of conspiration freaks. Keep on repeating them if it makes you feel smart, we'll see who will laugh when more evidence leaks about how this pandemic had all been planned.

                                    Fake news, of the closed cases 3 percent have died which amounts to almost 2.5 million people.

                                    As we speak a further 93000 are in a serious or critical condition.

                                    • What do you mean with 'planned'? As in 'Maybe someone brought the virus into the world on purpose.' or as in 'Maybe this virus doesn't really exist and everyone's just playing pretend.'? Regarding the first: Maybe, who knows... Regarding the second: Very unlikely and strategically close to impossible.

                                      • My grandma, who's 90, is getting the vaccine (1st dose) next friday. I am very happy, It was hard for her. Although she is lucky to live with my aunt and be very well taken care of, she feels sad sometimes she lost valuable time with my kid and my nieces (and of course with me and my brother). We managed to see her in open spaces but no hughs, no kisses, no smiles... it was hard for her. I know we will still take precautions but this is the start of the end as I see it.

                                        • Good luck thinking everything will be normal by summer

                                          Things might get better but not enough for stadium concerts or even night clubs to open. If everything goes according to plan, we'll be back to normalcy in the beginning of 2022.

                                              • The UK announcing stadiums, arenas, theatre re-opening in the summer doesn’t mean events will ago ahead - who is to say if the demand will be there from the public?

                                                I love going to live events but I won’t be comfortable going to any events until I’ve had both vaccinations - which based on Boris’s claims, I should have by the end of September 2020. I imagine a lot of people are in the same boat.

                                                In terms of concerts, it will be interesting to see what happens regarding ticket prices too. I think a lot of acts will need to drop prices if they want to tour 2021/2022.

                                                • The 17th May update is a bit illogical to me, if venues of up to 10000 people can operate why can funerals and weddings only go ahead with 30 guests. Seems a bit disconnected ? Maybe because its outdoor ? But surely if indoor mixing in pubs is allowed you are going to have a lot more than 30.

                                                  17 May
                                                  Football stadiums and other outdoor, seated venues can host up to 10,000 people. Indoor mixing in pubs, cinemas hotels and theatres can resume. Weddings and funerals with 30 guests allowed to go ahead. International travel could resume.

                                                    That's good considering how many a-list stars have toured for heavy ass prices during the past few years, which I already wondered about how people with average incomes could afford them. In my opinion, it should be a maximum of 100€ for a-list stars, 50€ for b-list stars and 30€ c-list and beyond.
