Was the number really 500,000? That’s what reported here.

Well it appears we may have it - just heard a Doctor describe the symptoms and it matches ours 100% - not quite a cold and not quite flu. Carina is suffering a lot more than me, but in reality for us

UK Virus ALERT   The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent virus threat and have therefore raised their threat level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, level may be raised

I don’t even find it boring to stay inside all day ...but I don’t understand why in one box of rice krispies there are 2453 pieces, and in the other one 2467!

That was the BBC. The British Bullshit Company. Best ignored and defunded.

I still don’t understand.  The latest Government advice with distancing is 1.5metres and more if you can. So Jacob Rees-Mogg announces in Parliament on Thursday afternoon that the Driver Training Industry can return to work from 4th July and specifically mentions Motorbike then HGV and PCV and car Instructors.

Bike training (easy - Helmet on and keep a distance) HGV and Bus (relatively easy sitting opposite side of the vehicle) Car (F#%ing impossibility) - As a car Instructor, how the f#%k am I supposed to keep 1.5 metres from pupils whilst Instructing pupils? 
Whist not having worked since 21st March I am delighted to start back in a weeks time. From an income point of view it’ll be good, but having 6 different 17-18 years olds sat shoulder to shoulder with me for 10 hours a day, 6 days a week is not something I can get away from.

As far as I am concerned there isn’t a 1.5 metre rule anymore. It’s now zero. 👎😷

Not that brilliant if I need to grab the steering wheel 15-20 times a day. Or release handbrake, or gear change for them ect ect.

It’s going to be 1 metre plus from 4 July, isn’t it? Still not ideal within a car, but you allegedly have a 1 in 1700 chance of encountering a coronavirus infected person at the moment. I would just take all precautions if I was you. Face coverings for both, hand sanitiser, maybe disposable gloves. Our local UPS van driver has a big bottle of water and squirty soap, so that he can wash his hands properly on breaks throughout the day.

Yes all of the above plus I’m required to sanitize the car every time there is a driver change - 5 pupils a day means 10 internal car cleans a day. Windows open for air circulation ect ect. Also just ordered one of these thermal temperature takers to point at all of the pupils before they get in.

Putting my pessimist hat on - with virtually nobody going abroad I’m convinced every man and his dog will head Devon/Cornwall direction this summer.

FFS - whinge whinge whinge criticise ciriticise criticise.

The biggest decision most of us have to make on hear is which underpants to put on and how to have your eggs for breakfast.

And I bet for half the members on here the misses decides for you.

Good job we don't have to listen to scientists, biased political advisers, thick, stupid and biased journalists and 66m people who all think they're special before making a decision that actually matters.

I agree. Fcuking muppets all those ministers and the PM why don't they just make the right decision for me, everytime, because it's really dead easy isn't it.

@C8RKH Hope that was not directed at me? Was just responding to the pretty pic! 

I have no political allegiance.... they are all muppets, to use your phrase. Already decided that whatever they do will not be for me and that I would never have a say in it.

Not aimed at anyone in particular @MadMick just a general comment on how I perceive people are generally in the UK right now.

Every feels they are more special, more deserving than anyone else. I've got people who have been furloughed on full pay (yes, that's right a six figure salary for doing fcuk all who, now that they are being asked to consider coming back to work, want to negotiate their return as it will be tough for them to accommodate - I kid you not) whilst those of us who have been working keeping the revenue and the company going, and making sure they have a job to come back to, have been doing 12 hour days. Yup. They're special all right.

People have been screaming against sending their kids to school as it's unsafe. Teachers whining it's unsafe. Yet parents let their kids out in groups. Attend raves and parties. Flock to the beaches and behave like wild animals - and yes teachers were at those beaches, parties and protests. That's special.

I could go on. But at the end of the day it's just simpler and convenient to blame the "government". It makes no difference the party, the Government is damned if it does, damned if it doesn't and every decision is disected immediately by over paid buffoons of Journalists who live a well paid, pampered life.

Shit, I'm the whinger now!   🤣😂🤣😂

Dearie me, it’s a bit early to be cracking open the Beaujolais, isn’t it? Anyway, there’s no decision to be made with underpants, just take the pair on the top of the pile. And the day my wife makes breakfast, never mind eggs, I’ll eat the aforementioned undergarments with a side order of socks.

As for the ‘experts’, they all want their 15 minutes of fame, and in 15 day’s time no-one will remember their names. But fear ye not, because there’ll be a fresh batch of know-all, know-nothing ‘experts’ we’ve never heard of along soon.

@C8RKH Hey Mr Whinger 😂  whichever pair of pants you chose you certainly got them in a twist! I know how it makes you feel and can certainly sympathize. If it's that bad then you better revert to the 2 bottles of wine in 1 go (was that you or someone else? cannot remember)... might help but I doubt it.

Not getting at you or anyone else, just feel the World is completely mad at the moment ... perhaps we need the 'Good Old Days'. Cheer up calm down and enjoy every moment that life offers (even if it is sometimes difficult to see the good side).... this moment will not come back again (unless you have a time machine).

But then you only ever wear the same three pairs from the top of the pile!  Unless of course your wife is super organised and rotates the pile for you. Happily I've not met a bloke yet who would do that, but certainly have met a few women who would! 

I'm off the vino colapso at the moment actually. Giving my body of a month off whilst I eat healthy salads and stuff.  Last night was rib eye and salad with a nice sweet chilli dressing. Lunch today was a nice bit of poached salmon with a salad and I made a nice home made coriander dressing that went with it quite nicely!  All liberally washed down with water (I'm off the caffeine for a week too - could not last more than a week!). Thankfully veg not salad tonight!!!  lol.

I do have a craving though for a Wimpy half pounder with it's wholemeal bun, boiled onions and lashings of their "special sauce"!  Last time I had one was on the way back from the TLF xmas do when I got the bus to Strood for the train back to London.

Normal service and bodily assault and battery will be resumed shortly....

Your paragraph 2 just made my mouth water and it's not even dinner time yet. Maybe off topic but better tha thinking about Covid.

She’s super-organised, but doesn’t do the stock rotation thing, so it’s the same three pairs from the top of the pile. They’re getting a bit tatty, a cull must be imminent.

All this abstention is not good, what with the state of the economy and all. We were all relying on the tax windfall from your wine purchases to help drag us out of this mess.

You mean as lockdown is being lifted the number of cases are increasing?  Wow, that news will even surprise the people at the Sun and the Express.....! Bet no one expected that.

Not so in Europe.

Many European countries have been easing lockdown long before the UK started, but there has been no serious upswing in the numbers of new cases (yet?). Of course the senseless idiots massing together in our country are doing their best to change all that.
