Tiers, long Covid and circuit-breakers are on the minds of these funny tweeters – 12 lockdown laughs
The government’s three-tier system is causing mayhem, as London goes up a level, making household mixing indoors illegal, and Manchester threatens legal action to stop it going into the top tier.
Spoiler alert – it won’t work.
Over on Twitter the tiers are very much on people’s minds, along with long Covid, a potential ‘circuit-breaker’ and snarky columnists. Well, one snarky columnist.
New Covid19 restrictions:
Medium low high tier:
You can throw a satsuma at a cow.

Small large tier:

Tall spatula tier:
A household of 6 can take a bag of cement to a canal
