You do seem very cross at most thing Luvnyrick.
Christmas is a long way off and I suspect that the rules will change twice over before then. If the numbers are increasing, better to act decisively and sooner rather than later. I wish the numbers allowed were larger but hopefully this is a short term situation.

Erm, hard to predict where things will be at Christmas but I think by then we'll be doing well to avoid a lockdown!  It looks unlikely there will be a vaccine before then and we are heading into winter.  Christmas is traditionally a time when flu spreads as familiies get together so presumably there will be similar problems with Covid 19.

I watched this the other day... does takes 37mins but very interesting and puts a lot of stuff into perspective... basically shows that Covid is very similar to seasonal flu in both death rates and seasonality all over the world, suggesting we won’t get a 2nd peak of deaths (over and above those who would sadly normally die of seasonal flu each winter)

But to answer your question, I'm not a fan of the Rule of 6 as we're already a family of 5, so that means just inviting one grandparent at a time. I think we should change the rule to be like Wales and Scotland, which aren't including children under 12.
