Got to work...don't go to work.

Got to the pub...don't go to the pub.

Got to a restaurant ... but not to your Auntie's.

Book a holiday...don't book a holiday.

Essentially, the usual confused smorgasbord of shite...

Snippet from the Guardian live blog:-

In Trafford, a mostly-affluent part of Greater Manchester, health officials said younger middle-class residents were behind the recent rise in cases – not the south Asian community.

Eleanor Roaf, Trafford council’s director of public health, said about 57% of the new cases were people aged 25 or below and included those in its wealthiest suburbs, Altrincham and Hale, home to footballers and television stars.

Jump to the left. Step to the right. Do the time warp.

New slogan. Contradictory advice. No intelligence.

Mishandle everything. Make stuff up. Blame Labour.

As soon as I got the instructions from my masters matt and Boris I called my mother while observing social distancing and said mother you must not come for tea . She sagely  agreed and reminded me of the famous proverb 

don’t blame the horse racing when you can blame a Slovakian trucker with a cough

Just seen the news with a group of teenage girls, 16-18 yr olds, having got off the train in Brighton. Giggling about ‘don’t touch the handrails’, ‘don’t touch the buttons’, telling the reporter they were packed in like sardines. That age group don’t give a monkeys and it is that age group that will spread the virus. Not all are like that, of course, but the people packed on the beach in Brighton seemed to be young families and groups of teenagers and young adults. I keep banging on about this but you simply can’t tell a significant amount of Britons what to do. If they don’t want to comply, they won’t.

Other people aren't. People are mixing with different groups throughout the week. You seen this when you drive around different towns or places. Not washing their hands, keep social distancing. One of the reasons why I open shopping at 8am on Thursday cos the store is dead and barely anyone there  

We have met my parents indoors due to weather conditions. Mainly outdoors. 

 

So since when was I actually allowed to do things like meet family indoors? My daughter wont let us visit her and even outdoors we cant get nearer than 2 metres to any of them. We had to cancel a meetup with my son and his wife because it was raining and she, being pregnant, didn't want to be indoors anywhere. I'm not a very cautious person normally but I dont get why others cant stick to what weve been doing for so long now it's become a normal habit. I'm thankful I'm out of the country atm. Here in France we are so isolated we haven't spoken to anyone. Even on the beach we were easily 10 metres from the nearest person and in the sea a good 20 metres.

I was just watching the news on BBC TV and they were filming the night life in Manchester tonight. It could have been filmed a year ago. It was as though nothing has happened.

People my age and younger don't seem to give a shit about other people in general, and Covid-19 has just exacerbated that attitude.

Good  luck to them repaying   the debt for their attitude.

“There is no economic recovery without a controlled health situation,” said Ángel Talavera, lead eurozone economist at Oxford Economics in London. “It’s not a choice between the two.”

Don’t know about that Mike. 750,000 applicants for voluntary service was it? The vast majority of them were young too. 
 

This isn’t a generational thing. There are just as many older British people who won’t be told what to do.

I think the difference is most " young " people think they'll survive an encounter with the virus. So it's a risk worth taking. When I was that age I'd have probably thought along those lines.  Most " older " people would rather not take the chance. It's a matter of self preservation. I agree that there are " older " people who won't listen either, my mum for one, although she's a lot more sensible about it now

Cos you were allowed to meet one other household as the guidelines from the government

I hope you have a very good time in France Gumboots
