Freedom day should have marked the start of a economic recovery, but no, we have hammered a new nail through our foot. Turn the kin thing off NOW! Does anyone support the "pingdemic"? All it's done is create a method of bunking off work. Surely the government can see it serves no purpose. What was the purpose of the vaccine if we still carry on like there isn't one?

“ the app is fine, it is performing its function as designed” Yes fair comment. What is rubbish is the fact that the govt didn’t anticipate this situation. And is now not acting decisively to deal with it. In fact worse, sending out confused messages

I agree. The government have royally screwed this one up.

Mozz, I don't mind telling you my faith is being sorely tested by this latest botox.
I can see no other reason to continue with this other then trying to justify it because it cost so much to introduce. Unfortunately our government is a mixture of arrogance and stupidity, a lethal combination.
having seen the list of industries exempt, why didn't they just drop the 'ping' scheme?

They’d have to admit that the app is rubbish.

Mind you I’m not sure who coined the term
“Freedom Day”
It was never going to be that as soon as the Delta variant kicked in.
I note that the number of cases has started to fall - it will be interesting to see if it rises again and if so by how much

ich: "They’d have to admit that the app is rubbish. " - the app is fine, it is performing its function as designed. The problem is that we do not need that function now we are mostly vaccinated and it's now a liability. The app would have been great at the start of all this.
TTT, I think everyone’s is , I’ll not turn my back on them but I now feel he’s making to many Faux pas now, it’s been extremely hard for the man but mistakes are being made regularly , he either needs a sabbatical or needs to step down to to allow a fresher visioned person to take over

Can anyone make a case for NOT turning it off?
The supermarket distribution centre workers can but supermarket staff can’t?
I've never had the app and I think it's doing a lot of damage now, but if it's turned off he'll be accused of allowing the virus to run rife and putting money before lives. He can't win.
Damn, I'm agreeing with both Tora and Naomi on the same thread! ☺

I never downloaded it either, but as Naomi said, they cannot turn it off without massive fallout. It was a terrible idea in the first place (with hindsight of course) but Boris has left it too long now. He's backed himself into a corner.
His is a truly thankless task. I feel sorry for him.
Me too, I really like the man but I feel he’s burnt himself out now and who can blame him with that, he’s had Covid and been dealing with a pandemic of huge magnitude
//I feel he’s burnt himself out now //

I disagree. There's plenty of life in the old dog yet! ;o)
I’d like to think so, and he’s young so let’s just hope he can get back on course
Oh dear oh dear. Even the dyed in the wool radicalised Boris supporters are starting to lose faith in him.

he'll be fine once all this *** is over.
Was Track & Trace only supposed to be implemented up to the vaccine programme? Then taken out of use once that got up and running? Not sure. I think I read that somewhere. I agree with TTT though, that it seems to be a good excuse to bunk off work in the middle of a heat wave.
Question Author
track and trace would have been good near the start of the pandemic.
Gully you’d like to think so sitting there in your little bedroom, go back to wishing bonny lad x
