Covid: Has lockdown led to bad behaviour?

Sad to say, I think the answer is "yes". My Union magazine has been reporting on assaults to theatre workers (made worse since drinking was allowed in the auditorium) and I have certainly noticed a steep decline in road craft since people were encouraged back to the offices.

Errrr... What about those of us who *had* to go to work because we simply couldn't WFH?

Sorry, I should have said 'mainly'. A lot of us, myself included, had to go out sometimes but when I did, I would look at the traffic queues and think "They can't all be essential workers or visiting their housebound grandparents".

Something that the lockdown forever brigade should think about.

They won't because they are a creation of the antivax conspiriloons.
NB not everything Piers Corbyn tells you is true.
I'm no Piers Corbyn fan merely pointing out that they're those who think we should just lockdown every time there's a covid outbreak. They often ignore the consequences and effects of lockdown which we've seen first hand with the growth of conspiracy theories and the effects on people's mental health and bad behaviour we've seen. I have no love for the anti-vaxxers but the lockdown forever types are just as bad in my view.
