    Even the guardian - let’s have some European sources. Europe is under the same pressures right now as the UK - everyone is preparing for this virus in terms of packages for redundancies / short time working / decline in economics growth. Why do you find it so necessary to big up all the bad points in the EU? Much of what the UK gov is now implementing is std in many European countries all ready...you don’t recognise that though do you - only focussing on the bad.

    As for people with savings not getting fee cash - I don’t care. I want those i society who need help to get help and if that means a few greedy people decide to buck the system then so be it - there will always be wankers - *shows you your reflection in a mirror*

    Guns & shooting are different from pandemics. And I bet you appeasers and non-appeasers were at it hammer and tongs.

    Frankly - climate change and biodiversity crashing is way more important than any of this. Orders of magnitude more so. But we're not "coming together" to fix the more important threat.

    It's an example that cuts to the very heart of my argument: we're too dumb a species to live. We won't make it. It's just a matter of time until something finishes us off.

    Vastly more people are like @Job than Einstein during low-stress times of peace, never mind during environmental catastrophe, war and pandemic. And even Einstein recognised his own intellectual and emotional shortcomings.

    So I'm afraid that no, we don't and won't "drop all that". Even though that's the right thing to do.

    Because we're monkeys. Dumb fucking monkeys on a downward death spiral.

    Good on them.

    Stay at fucking home you tool. It IS clear.

    You can exercise from your door. You can't travel somewhere for exercise.

    Fines and arrests of dumb people incoming. Which is great. And knowing plod, a good shoeing in the back of the wally-wagon.

    Who is going to rescue them if the break a leg or have a fall or heart attack while out walking. Its irresponsible. Like driving vast distances, driving is inherently risky. We dont need people doing risky things and much as possible to remove the need for police/nhs to pick up the pieces. They are busy enough.

    It used to be the default around here, but like a plague carrier Job has spread enough of the virus around that even people who previously tried to live up to your high standards have been known to fail ;)

    This is making countries more insular. Looking after their own issues. Than cooperating. I just hope that who ever finds a solution / vaccine makes it public property and its not an american company who patent it

    This is why the Government and all the parties mostly supported the bill. We have to look after the dumb fucking children in our society. So what if I am not allowed to leave my home for a few weeks if it saves many lives or indeed allows me to travel to sites to fix equipment that enables Blue Light services or CNI to continue to function. I will take that any day of the week as it reduces my risk to getting the virus whilst providing a critical service.

    They do get it. They just don't fucking like it. So they whine about things "being unclear" - and start lying to themselves to justify their own idiocy.

    "Oh, it's not my fault - you weren't clear with your exceedingly clear instruction to stay in the fucking house."

    I think they should have been clearer from the start that exercising doesnt include something most people would see as perfectly safe.
    The concern of spread is making everyone rightly protective about their area but I fear this will continue after the lockdown.

    Globalisation has just taken its biggest hit

    Got a friend who is a manager in an apple shop. He is having to deal with all these millennials that they are responsible for at work complaining they are board as they cant just get on with being in their houses.

    It can't get any clearer: STAY AT HOME, DO NOT TRAVEL, EXERCISE LOCAL.
    Only Key workers should be going to work - Everyone else stay at home!

    It's been said a million times.

    Some idiots having a bonfire on the fields near us all getting pissed.

    I am a little concerned that those unaffected by the financials of this.....the doleites....will see it as an opportunity to go a bit zombie wasteland.

    The list of confirmed cases.

    Tower Hamlets alone has 80 cases
    Lambeth 220.

    In reality they think 6 million of us have had it

    Good for them let’s hope they can be tested quickly - in the meantime let’s use the manufactures we already have eh?
