there are far fewer ICU beds in tourist areas than cities
You don't leave home to go for a walk/ climbing/ caving in the morning and end up in an emergency covid ward by lunchtime.
we WILL get back out there soon.
Guys, some of you may have seen the news of the rescue in Cheddar Gorge (https://www.somersetlive.co.uk/news/somerset-news/police-update-cheddar-gorge-rescue-4979937). Note that whatever your views on the details of the lockdown law that those rescued were handed £200 fines from the police, they had apparently travelled about 30 miles from South Gloucestershire to the Gorge. There are reports of others having been fined visiting the Cheddar Gorge and at Goblin Combe. This post is not to debate the rights and wrongs of this, these can be taken up with the Police and the courts, but to point out that anyone travelling to Mendip to go caving is now very likely to be facing legal action if they have travelled any distance.

That's allowed if they are family or in a bubble, so doubtful.
Unfortunately most people assumed it wouldn't make much difference, so allowed them to "take power" - they've now realised they don't actually have any!
Only 2/3 of population actually voted, so they also didn't vote against them. The opposition were practically unelectable. If you don't do anything about it then you do end up with the representation you deserve (as a community, rather than an individual).
