Police condemn city rave

Police have condemned about 100 people who attended a city-centre rave.
Officers were alerted to loud music and an illegal gathering at unoccupied flats in Hanover Street in Manchester's Shudehill area at about 04:20 GMT.
Police issued 1,000 fixed penalty notices to two men, aged 17 and 18, and seized music equipment.
A 27-year-old man arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence remains in custody. He was also given a 200 fixed penalty notice.

'Sacrifices'
"There is no denying the blatant breach of Covid legislation that took place," said Ch Insp Colin MacDiarmid of Greater Manchester Police.
"Enquiries are ongoing to ensure the organisers of this gathering are held accountable for their unacceptable actions."
He said it was "clear that the people at this gathering weren't just people from Manchester but from across the North West of England".
"The majority of people in Manchester have made tremendously difficult sacrifices over the Christmas period and have complied with the [social distancing] rules that we all have to follow.
"However, it is the minority of people who attend events such as this that risk undoing the hard work of everyone else."
All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

The rave could make us move into Tier 4, lets hope we don't.

People picking up Covid at Xmas,will be most infectious at New Year.
Politicians and nappies must be changed often,and for the same reason

. We can hope but I'm afraid it will be a forlorn one, I think these scientists are on a power trip, I'm beginning to wonder how much say they will get in the running of the country as we go forward after this nonsense is over (if ever)  :-\
