Do you think a £10,000 fine is a bit steep for having a "Reckless" Christening party during the covid virus?

The organisers had 50 guests, a marquee, DJ decks, live entertainers and tables piled high with food and drink. It was somewhere in the midlands UK. Read on the news.

    It's all about a dolla dolla bill..or in this case a pound.

    Governments have been strained due to Covid, and hope to take some of "their" money back via fines.

    When the regulations for gatherings are set, and people just go do what they want anyway, the cost could be a lot greater than money.

    No. Those idiots should have to pay medical costs, funeral costs, all the costs their carelessness has caused.

    It seems like a slap on the wrist.  If anyone dies as a result, there should be additional criminal charges.

    I think its excessive. This entire covid nonsense has been used to keep one good people of society down while allowing the bad to run rampant.  I don't understand why so many choose to allow this to happen while being angry at those who want to continue with a normal life. I know all the fearmongering but this isnt the first virus problem the world has faced but it's the most overreacted and political one.

    If you break the law, you pay the price. No good complaining about it after the fact.

    No, it's not.  People need to take public health measures seriously and not put their own selfish need for entertainment first.

    No, it is not enough to cover possible NHS Covid treatment for guests and their future contacts.

    Nope, the costs to society could be far greater.
