    45494 I was surprised to hear that Boris Johnson is easing the British corona lockdown but that Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland reject the measure. It seems the United Kingdom is no longer united..

    45495 - That's what happens when you have a prime minister as inept and callous as Boris Johnson. He missed 5 emergency meetings in January, February and March, and wanted to go the opposite way of all the other countries in lockdown and pursue a strategy of 'herd immunity' - the idea that if enough people in the UK get sick with the virus and pass it on, we'll all become immune. This is blatant nonsense as recovering from the virus doesn't make you immune, and would've resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths. The only reason the lockdown happened is because of the public outcry, which is also the only reason anything positive's happened here. Now with the lockdown being eased despite us still being right in the thick of it, it would seem that our neighbours in Scotland, Wales & NI have a whole lot more common sense than the PM.

    45, 490 - The theory with the cat is easier to understand :lol: 

    Seriously though, such unclear guidelines are dangerous. I'm not going back to the library until all the MPs think it's OK to go and crowd back into Parliament. People are still catching this virus and dying from it - I don't want to risk being one of them. Or to risk anyone I know catching it.  

    45491 - I work in a restaurant, and according to current government guidelines restaurants, pubs & bars could be open again as soon as 1 July, which would currently put us at halfway through lockdown. Halfway through lockdown, with what's just been confirmed as the second worst death toll in the world. Needless to say, I'm a bit worried.

    You have to applaud the postal service for managing to deliver my box of Star Wars cards... on Star Wars Day. I was able to open them in the middle of my annual film marathon B)

    And @peterferris8 I badly need to catch up with both Clone Wars and Rebels. Haven't seen any of either yet and haven't got Disney Plus. 

    45484 - I haven't really delved into Rebels yet but Clone Wars is absolutely worth watching all the way through. Especially the later seasons.

  4. 45421 - Our idiot PM has been his idiot self again today, making an announcement that recommends that theatres shut but not explicitly issuing a shutdown order. This is bad because it means that these venues won't be able to claim insurance for the time of closure because they were advised rather than ordered. The Dome, which is one of Brighton's biggest venues, has just announced it's temporarily closed. 

    My work have issued some new cleaning protocols but they haven't given us any clarity on the bigger questions - IE should we be expecting a shutdown order? If we get shut down are we going to get compensated with sickpay? 

    This gets more and more stressful with each passing day.

    45414 Doesn't matter how many times the emails go round at work, one of my colleagues still coughs and sneezes into the open air. At least 5 people have caught his cough because of this...

    45416 - I counted two coughing children and two coughing adults at work today. Crazy how far people's hygiene has fallen! 

    And the government's response has been useless, especially compared to other countries. Maybe this will be what finally ends the Tories at the next election.

  6. 45413 - Seeing a lot of people being like "it's nothing, people need to stop panicking about it!" Panicking will do nothing to make the situation better, yes. But sticking fingers in ears, going "LA LA LA" and pretending it isn't happening definitely will make it worse. 

    Wash your hands, with soap & hot water, stay hygienic, follow the advice, don't stock up on things other people need too, and don't cough or sneeze without covering your mouth!
