(Daily Star)   Roadside sign telling out-of-towners "if you don't live here f*** off" sparks fury. Word is that it's a local town for local people (possible nsfw content on page)   (dailystar.co.uk) divider line

Oh please. It does not "smack of xenophobia". It sounds like local people are rightfully pissed off that entitled twats won't follow the rules and stay away during a pandemic.

As someone who lives in a tourist location I 100% agree with this sign and it's maker. Despite there being a national lockdown people are still going on days out.

I know, not friends but people I've met over the years, who were bragging about getting out of london before stricter lockdowns.

They don't think of themselves as part of the problem, a sign certainly won't work

Sounds reasonable. If your first home (or only home) isn't there then fark off. The UK has travel restrictions (i.e. shop locally and only essential travel is allowed). I expect the last thing locals in places like this need is COVID arriving and/or extra people to overwhelm their local hospital.

It's in the UK so should have been bugger off. Fuxk off is too American sounding.

It Britain just trying to make it's American cousins feel better by showing even more stupidity with regards to this virus?  What is this, a race to extinction?

People may have valid reasons to travel. There's no reason to be a dick to them about it except to boost your own ego on a wave of self-righteousness.

Kind of makes me want to travel out of spite, though, just to see people shiat themselves with rage. Yeah, because I'm an aspiring mass murder who kicks grandmas and puppies for fun, etc.

Southwold has just 1,098 permanent residents, and its population more than doubles over the summertime.

That's not a "small minority", mate, that's potentially as many out of towners as locals. And the sign ain't xenophobia if the problem's that bad, it's common sense. Town councillor Tom Beavan should start thinking aboot a new job.

As someone else who lives in a tourist location - which went from the lowest infection rate on the Scottish mainland to the second highest over the holidays - I endorse this message and one on the sign.

So when these people show up in their second homes, do they expect the locals to come and clean their houses or cut their lawn?

You're part of the problem.

Here we have a story about a town in the UK, that has no politics, let alone US politics, yet you bring US politics into the thread.

Are you a Russian troll or one of the millions falling for them?

Half of the people in New York City left town before the lockdowns.

Same happened in a seaside town where my sister has a summer house. They put a sign up with "locals only" on it. Then they decided to have a four day funeral/wake for a local who died. At this stage the are three confirmed 'rona deaths (town had a population of around 300), and the locality had the highest rate/1000 in the country.

The problem is the cottage owners letting the homes as weekend B&B's to partyers who disturb residents & don't give a Fark. They're just shilling for shillings - have no connection to wherever income property is located. When you get up to go to work & find your drive blocked by one or more unknown cars, you get a bit ticked, especially if the party music didn't stop until 05:00!  Any rental under 30 days should register as a motel/hotel & be subject to their Laws, like real B&B's do, including on-site manager.

I don't live in a tourist destination at all but I get this and the fury.  Toronto was supposed to be locked down early December, with all stores shut, doing online pick ups only and only if there was an exterior door.  Malls for example weren't supposed to be in business.

So, what did all the plague rats who couldn't follow the rules do..?  Pop onto the 401, 403 and spread their monochromatic wearing diseased selves all through Niagara, Muskoka and elsewhere rather than staying the FARK HOME.

The 403 Niagara was bumper to bumper on weekends all through December.  Malls here were jammed with people, at least the parking lots were, I didn't step foot in.

The rules are for everyone else...

More than half of all properties in Southwold, Suffolk are second homes, many of which are owned by celebrities who frequent the picturesque town. More than half of all properties in Southwold, Suffolk are second homes, many of which are owned by celebrities who frequent the picturesque town.

I wonder what the laws are around squatting in one of these empty mansions. Asking for a friend.

I'd imagine there aren't many Biden/Harris bumper stickers the, what with Suffolk being in a different country and all.
