UEFA in Charge of UK restrictions?
This one, first reported in The Times.
Uefa are insisting that 2500 VIP's and officials should be exempted from our Covid restrictions in time for the Semi's (6th, 7th July) and the final on 11th of July - All at Wembley.
If not, they are threatening to take the semi's and the finals to Hungary, where there are no restrictions as limiting as ours in the UK.
This is a bit of a problem for Boris. How does he exempt 2500 when the rest of the UK has restrictions, currently to run until after the finals?
There would be an uproar if he made this special exemption, we would all want one.
There would be an uproar if Uefa carried out it's blackmail.
Boris is also keen to make a bid for us to host the future World cup.
Anybody fancy a punt that Freedom day will be brought forward to 5th of July as is already being mooted?
That keeps Uefa happy, the UK happy and Boris will claim that the science has dictated that it is fine to do so.
Nothing to do with Uefa then?

This is where you either see the mettle of our PM and he tells UEFA that the rules that apply to us, also apply to the VIP's and officials and to do their worst, or he capitulates, takes the easy option and he will congratulate us on doing our bit, amending freedom day forwards by 2 weeks.
Any bets?

Their will be a comprise fudge... UEFA won't want to pay another compensation payout and Boris won't want to lose the prestige .... UEFA had to pay compensation to the city of Bilbao £1.3 mil for it losing the hosting of a Euro match.... for A Final it would surely be a lot more.....

The 2500 'important' people are going to allowed to be here, attend the matches, but remain in a 'bubble' and therefore are not bound by the same restrictions as us plebs when it comes to quarantines.
Money talks?

I’ve got visions of the various variants getting their little heads together & calling up their bubble busting variant 😂

Pure stupidity and greed. No thought for our NHS workers whatsoever. Still, I hope it costs them a few votes at the next GE. Every Lidl counts.

The bigger picture is, every country staging these games or countries who have played are in the same boat with supporters. Thousands are congregating away from the stadiums to watch matches on big screens. These games couldn’t have come at a worse time.
Merkel has called it out re the spread but if Germany reaches the final, I would expect her to be there 😂
