Social distancing is probably here to stay for a while yet


I wouldn't be so sure. It's something that simply can't be sustained in the long term.


It has to be though. Whether people stick to it day to day or get fed up and let it slip is a different matter, but until there’s a vaccine or wide and accurate antibody testing then the official social distancing rules will have to be in place. Broadcasters/TV shows will absolutely have to keep adhering on screen even if the general public start getting complacent with them.

It doesn’t really affect GMB in general though - it’s one of those shows where social distancing actually is sustainable, especially at 1 metre plus - as the set is big enough to allow for alternate areas to be used if they decide to bring back a third presenter.


Don’t really want to turn this thread into a Covid-thread but you are simply wrong. New Zealand has ditched social-distancing because its virus-levels are low, not because there’s a vaccine or an anti-body testing scheme. There may never be a vaccine - staying socially distant for the rest of our lives is neither sustainable nor desirable. We instead need to get the infect rate so low and a reliable test-and-trace system to stamp out new outbreaks.

Anyway, back to GMB. The Lord Grade interview is embarrassing - why didn’t a producer check what he might have to say? They set themselves up for an open goal.
