Who's going to enforce restrictions at people's houses though? The west of Scotland is pretty much under these restrictions already and cases aren't going down. This would suggest the restrictions have no impact, in which case why enforce them on the rest of us, or that nobody is following them, which isn't going to suddenly change?

It does strike of total panic by everyone, I'm not sure if we aren't hearing the full story, strange Sturgeon now so keen to hear what Boris thinks when she was so confident before. Didn't even get her daily rant about furlough today so she's clearly feeling the pressure.
Strange how Germany seem to have such good control over this issue.
