Hopefully people will remember these acts post this crisis and vote with their feet.

The problem is that the staff are going to be the ones who suffer :(

Here's a thought I don't think we will be anything like Italy or Spain apart from the kissing on cheeks we do not do, its because of our shitty weather we always have colds and flu and so already have an amount of immunity compared to those countries with the better weather all winter.
 I also think we will look back on this and see that the scientists got their numbers massively wrong, I keep seeing that chart and I cant help seeing a "hokey stick"  ;)

There's no need for the silly, cringy Scots mash-up speak, or whatever you'd call it, but there's nothing wrong with being proud of your nation.


Only trouble is, when it's South of the border he brands it racism :rolleyes

Wait a foccin minute.  People are told no non-essential travel.  Hotels, B&B, hostels, and cottage lets are told to close down.  Caravaners are told they are selfish idiots, and ordered to turn around and head home.  People are told do not travel to your second homes.  Stay at home!


Our NHS staff, consultants, doctors, nurses, porters, cleaners etc are begging us to stay at home. Many of them, fearing they now have the virus themselves, are self-isolating at home, unable to return to work for a lack a Covid19 test.


Meanwhile, our Royal Fucking Wank, never mind that he ignored all the government advice before traveling to his bonnie Scottish estate, did not meet the criteria for being tested, but presumably Aberdeen NHS were ordered to travel out to his royal estate and test him.


I mean what the foc!  What the foccin foc!


I know who should be embarrassed, but then their grandiose sense of entitlement, puts them above the rules, and embarrassment is perhaps a concept that they struggle with.

The critical sector list is to allow those key workers to continue to send their children to school.
The advice may change, it things continue to get worse, it may be only key workers continuing to travel to work.  That will include myslef - unless my employer sends me home.
