Now there is a brilliant idea. I have been having some texts with a member on here who has lost someone last week to this. My bet is Chris Whitty is probably more qualified than anyone to tell

This sign should me made mandatory in all public spaces!! 

I don't understand why this is even a conversation. It is plainly obvious that wearing a mask is to protect others, not yourself. Any kind of face covering reduces the amount of vapour you expel and h

So there we are. We’re all in tier 5 of a 3 tier system.

And schools are in and out.

All perfectly clear 👍

Levels (not tiers) 1 to 5 were established a long time ago.

Schools first day in today but back out tomorrow. It seems odd that only this morning Boris was insisting that children must go to school, whilst he must have known what he would be announcing this evening...

As a Scouser I resemble those remarks although if I'd have posted them I'd have been called a "bully" and an apology issued on my behalf. 

Go figure, but remember, in these dark COVID times S L M - Scouse Lives Matter as. does a sense of humour and a thick skin (latter keeps the COVID out!)  ;)

He’s done you a written apology @pete - but he’s put it under his work boots. Might be a while waiting for it chap.

Sorry for the delay, was just ordering myself a new Black Adidas shell suit from a man in a van for my interview, I mean introduction, to "Me Lord" next week.  All I can say in my defence is "guilty".

With the numbers as they are, clearly it wasn't £10bn well spent and hasn't worked anyway! I asked in my local PO the other day if anyone was scanning the QR code still and they said not for a month or so. If it were a legal requirement to scan before entry, I'm sure it may have worked a little better than it did but with everyone ignoring it, it was a waste of time and money.

It was only going to work if people could bother their arses to use it; They didn't, and they're still not doing so.

I’d recommend not using or touching the park bench @Buddsy. It’s not a Covid secure environment you see and could well have virus smeared all over it.

I do have a mobile or 2, but none are new enough to use the app. My main mobile is over 13 years old and it still makes phone calls....which is what I bought it for.. Don't pay a monthly fee either.

Bought my smart phone (HTC One A9S) in Feb 2017 for £225. Still going strong. My current Virgin contract is £7 per month. Phones texts and apps. All I need. Bargain.

I have got the NHS Covid app which is a bit greedy with the Bluetooth bandwidth. I was stood near an acquaintance whose drone controller was connected to his phone, it sent his drone lairy until I moved out of Bluetooth reach.

p.s. I'm only guessing at this as I have no actual evidence.

Track and Trace is a hard one as we have to disconnect it and our GPS while working for official reasons and seeing I am at home the rest of the time there's no point in having it!

I always wondered how you afforded a Lotus. Now we all know you stole it!

The COVID rules are pretty simple really.

Don't go out for anything but totally essential shopping or exercise (which is once a day).

- Unless you fancy a Maccy D's or a takeaway
- Or fancy popping into your place of worship with 100 other people
- Or if you are a house cleaner and want to go clean peoples houses
- Or want to buy some plants for the garden, a trellis or 2 or maybe a nice Pot, just so you can get out and mingle and say you are shopping.
- Or go to the playground with your whole household, but can't meet other people you know....but there will be 100 other strangers there you can meet! 
- Or go to buy a new car but just to get round the rules we'll call it click and collect and you can't come in the showroom but we'll have a car outside you can see. Basically just make an appointment and we'll see you as normal
- Or want to fill your car up with fuel even though you shouldn't be out driving so why do you need fuel?

There are more but I'm bored now and going back to work sellingcars as every car dealership is still open anyway! 

How about the young Police Officer who lives with his grandparents. Grandfather tested positive for COVID but he still came in for his shifts untested, then got tested and has it, and now have several of his colleagues whilst the others have to isolate!  What a Grade A plonker and this is the person who is supposed to protect us?  If the Police can't give a toss re the rules why should anyone else? We could talk about the SNP politician who KNEW she had it and got on a crowded train back to Scotland. So, let's not throw stones at the average Joe when those who clearly should have a better grasp can get it so wrong.

I mean, if a complete dick like me can get it, and socially isolate at home for 9 months, not break any rules, without crying about how unfair and stressful etc it is, when I've been used for the past 25 years to being away travelling 4/5 days a week, why is it so fooking hard and stressful for anyone else? And yes, I have an elderly mother who lives 300 miles away with Parkinsons and other conditions whom I have not seen since February. So again, why do fooking middle class nonces and others think it is OK for them to leave London and other places to go and potentially infect people in other areas and put other people at risk because, they, them precious selves, just needed to get away for the weekend darling as I was going spare with the children at home!..................   I better stop as the full dictionary of swear words will be in use.

I am ignoring such negativity when one in 100,000 officers acts foolishly and point out that despite your attempt to show Police in a poor light, without fail Officers are going into houses with COVID, and more present, and dealing with not only people who COVID Positive but people who have passed away from the Virus on a regular basis. 

In light of Officers putting themselves in danger regularly, maybe support for the majority would be better than slating a tiny minority.

@kimbers I am not trying to show the Police in a poor light but merely pointing out that if they, and politicians and supposedly other "educated, sensible, people" can get it wrong then so can any and many average Joe's. To put it into context a family member of mine has been put at risk by that persons irresponsibility and is now having to isolate! So let's not be too precious about it please. A uniform or a high viz vest often gives a person an air of authority but it doesn't mean they can't also be a dick at times - there is currently no vaccine for people being dicks. Just ask anyone who has had to deal with a high viz vest wearer with a clipboard.
