How is the rule of 6 tightening restrictions anyway? We’ve replaced two households and two vectors with up to six people from different households and a possible 6 vectors.

I’m still hung up on this. Just how many different groups of six do you think I could see in a day? 😀
You've seen the figures on transmission places, right? Schools and workplaces are and always have been higher than private residencies, for example. But we can't shut those down (and arguably rightly so: education over the long term has a huge impact on mortality; and in the medium term so does employment and will continue to do so unless there's a huge change in world order).

So, the areas where impact can be made become incredibly small. The rule of 6, and 2 metres and all that other shit are just arbitrary numbers that are deemed reasonable; in the same way the 5 a day was selected out of a plethora of studies because it seemed achievable.
