Lockdown may well be in the process of being eased, but to assume that the Covid-19 virus is any less dangerous is rather foolish. Spikes of infection reported in different world areas where close proximity of populace is noted are not fairy tales. It makes me wonder if the politicians really believe what they say when claims that people will use common sense in not gathering in large groupage areas when recent examples such as the Bournemouth beach incident on a hot day and the young people who deliberately chose to attend "Covid Raves" showed total and utter selfishness in their attitude towards others.It’s no different to the VE celebrations or BLM protests.
But, yes personally I don’t think it was sensible, however we are now well into the easing of lockdown. The police HQ is about 500m away and they didn’t see fit to intervene.
To place personal football support over the Covid-19 viral death toll of over 44,000 in Britain alone shows how little such people care for all the NHS staff efforts by attending such gatherings when the club manager and club players, noted local politicians and the police request to celebrate at home, not near the football stadium. They are below contempt.
