As the ‘rule of six’ comes into effect in England, here’s a selection of brilliant Tweets posted today…
As barbers and hairdressers aren’t reopening for another two weeks, this user said what many of us are thinking:
Under the rule of 6, can one of my 6 bring scissors and hair clippers?

A work of literary genius from this Twitter user:
So today you can meet up outside, distanced, in groups of any size from two households, which I expect means we’ll have more nonsense from those Montagues and Capulets

A sadly ironic take on the new rules:
Ahh, the Rule of 6 has once again returned here in England, reminding me yet again that I do not have enough friends to break the law.

This user posted a very British tweet – one that many of us can relate to:
What the rule of 6 taught me last summer is that my friends will endure any weather to have a drink together. I remember one evening we sat through pouring rain, hands carefully positioned over glasses to stop it diluting our G&Ts.

If you don’t have an electric heater or fire pit in the garden ready for evening visits, are you even doing ‘rule of six’ right?

Basically, people on Twitter are loving this relaxation of rules.
Most people are optimistic about the rest of the year, and as long as we meet up safely and don’t become complacent, we can soon put restrictions behind us.
