Ffs, if you feel you're an essential worker go out. Just try to stay 2m away from other people (which should be easy when fixing a roof).

If you're a mobile hairdresser or own a nail bar, stay at home you twohat.

Ever since my son was... never conceived, because I've never had consensual sex without money involved... I've always kind of looked at you as... a thing, that I could live next to... in accordance with state laws.

They announced this dropon the news at ten just a few minutes ago.

Followed up by what's happening in Iran which is utterly mind boggling. Apparently millions of people have ignored Iranian government advice and gone out celebrating the Persian new year! Then they went to a hospital where medical equipment included....plastic bags tied around their feet.

Stupidity is global.


Don’t get sucked in by this reporting.

Italy yesterday - third highest number of confirmed daily cases, second highest number of deaths by day. The downward trends need to continue for at least a week before anyone can says with a degree of confidence that Italy are regaining control of the situation.

Online shopping will go through the roof.

The death of the High St is nigh unfortunately


There have been lots of comments re jobs in the big supermarkets, I suspect Boris and his team have been doing a lot of work behind the scenes in the knowledge this was happening. Lots of shops are currently well stocked.

Fair, but was thinking more of the retail market than supermarkets.

People could go online at 10pm and buy an item of clothing for instance and get it delivered the next day even before this pandemic.

You are right re retail, small businesses with a presence on the High Street are invariably paying rent and business rates and tax on any profit they make whereas some of the multinationals are based in tax havens and don’t pay much in terms of overheads. There’s no way the little guy can compete.

I need an haircut, I'll be looking like Robinson fckn Crusoe.


I had a reminder this morning that I had a haircut booked for this afternoon. I booked it after my last visit and had forgotten about it with all that's going on.

I thought I should call to cancel in case they were still open. Not only were they open, the receptionist sounded surprised that I was cancelling.

You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don't help.

Surely that will change after Boris announcement.. they have to. ? Although after spending 15 mins looking through Facebook post's and twitter, I get the feeling that the majority of people who went out the weekend to beauty spots and such, will treat Boris words very lightly.

It was a step in the right direction by boris, but if was any member of parliament, take a quick look at social media, and you can see the idiots are going to abuse the rules.. I mean he's left himself wide open by saying you can exercise out side once a day, how the fck can anyone enforce that. Basically gives the morons an excuse to carry on.

Well I'm up for work and as previously stated our school is remaining open, yesterday just 12 kids turned up, they were expecting around 70, so far we are open for the next 2 weeks. The onlyt time I've been outside other than going to work was to walk the dog in the park, it was very quiet, so I can still do that one a day and that'll be my daily exercise.

I've just had a look at the earliest date to book an online food delivery from my local Asda, 14 April earliest!!

Greatful I've got a big garden front and back, probably going to have ages to get it looking all sparkly as it's taken a battering during the winter, plenty to do which will last me a couple of weeks, which is good as I do enjoy my gardening, might just cut the grass with a pair of scissors to bat it out a bit

Ok poss stupid question time, my car is parked directly outside the house, on the street and we are a fairly quiet area, I'm assuming it'll be ok to clean it inside and out?

The hair and the beard have gone I am now conforming to society, tis a sad day The b*stards are coming back though

Don’t be a knob pal.

I work in large construction / civil engineering, amongst our projects are hospitals, and food and drink manufacturers. All in my opinion, are essential in these times. Impossible to stay 2m apart on these projects. What about our other projects that aren’t of the type I mentioned, do we close them down, is it down to us to decide what is essential? Some of those boots on ground workers consider all their work essential due to having to put food on the table, living from wage packet to wage packet.

It isn’t as easy as your post.

I want a mate like Flashberryjacks, who wears a Barnsley jersey with "Swans are my second team" on the back.

I saw something earlier which suggested far more deaths in one region of Italy than any other.

The virus took hold in hospitals in that region of course, before being recognised for what it was.

All we can do is hope that we are different. And bloody stay inside unless absolutely necessary.


By hospitals very nature there is a battle to stop the spread of contagious diseases and bugs etc but it's a bit strong to say that the virus took hold in their hospitals.

Not necessarily so Jim, he's known to you and others so hopefully you and others will stick up for him.
We are told there is greater awareness of mental issues these days.....these times will prove if it is true.

The people who have been actively avoiding contact aren't the real problem. It's the idiots crowding together. If we could all be trusted to follow the rules things might be different.

We only intend to go out once for exercise, after fetching my wife from work the 3 of us will walk the dog but staying as far away from anybody else as we can manage but we know we'll see people just carrying on regardless.

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?
