That isn't hypocrisy. It is acknowledging the social contract. Perhaps you don't like what the rules are, think that they are dangerous, and want to do things differently. That is fine and understandable. That comes with limited options however. Avoid public places, or move to a country where that isn't a part of the rules.

I suppose that you could also run for office to change society to how you see it best. You can also sit around and complain, or break the rules as well, though that isn't going to be terribly useful for you or anyone else.
You don't dictate any rules to me or anyone, think you will be surprised when majority don't take a vaccine produced in 6 months for a virus with a 99.9% survival rate.

Shield the vulnerable and let the rest get on with their lives

What happens when "the vulnerable" as well as for sure some of the "rest" overload the healthcare system?

Here's a question for you if this plan is feasible, why has virtually no country tried it?

Its OK mate you can have you Xmas break from the pandemic because the government negotiated with the virus for you...
While we are enjoying a COVID free Christmas we will be sparing a thought for those who aren't.

What happened to the unused nightingale buildings?
Instead of wasting billions on shitty track and trace it should of gone into the NHS at the start of the year. Do you still believe the shit about hospitals being overran?

"new normal"
The vaccine, which isn't even ready to go yet, is going to take a long time to distribute. How long things take to return to normal after that is anyone's guess really but there's no reason why it won't happen eventually.

Don't need a vaccine to get back to normal, just turn off the TV.

THE nightingale buildings were to protect against a situation developing in the UK like what happened with Italy with hospitals running out of beds, thankfully it didn't get that bad. But it Could if measures aren't being put in place. Government policy has to accommodate the fact that the NHS isn't capable of handling the influx of patients from allowing covid to run wild, I don't think any heath are system is. This is the point I'm alluding to in my previous post, covid hospitalises a lot of people (1 in 5) and it does it quickly enough to overwhelm hospitals if measures aren't put on place like it did on Italy back in March, like its doing right now
This is ultimately why the government needed a lockdown and changed its strategy from herd immunity to one that took lockdown measures because letting the virus run rampant is not feasible.
