Loads of it in the shops so I bought a couple of bottles. Not bad, light and refreshing.

It's really, really bad you must stay in, never leave the house or you'll die. By the way don't forget to go to work as normal, even if you work in a completely non-essential position, because no matter how serious this is - work is more important. Typical Tory bollocks. Either it is deadly serious or not. What a fucking shambles.

You working from home, Gav?

Fucking ridiculous approach from the government, it's either essential work only - NHS-related and food distribution and supply - or just carry on as normal, you can't have some daft halfway house.

I'm eagerly (ha!) awaiting to see what the government has in store to help the self-employed, my income plummeted by about 75% when the exams were cancelled.

I'm working from home but I'm actually off this week anyway so even better. I'd expect some risk if I was a key worker but I know several people who work in factories and small businesses that are totally unnecessary at the moment but have to go in to work regardless. It is utterly shameful to present this as a deadly crisis where people must stay in and then leave these people in the lurch having to go to work. Not to mention their families. These people are told to stay in and then have someone coming back in to the house who has been in contact with numerous people anyway! It is farcical.

Let's be clear they have made a calculation of lives v economy and lives lost. Though, I have doubts whether it will end up being better for the economy anyway.

Allegedly you'll get 80% of your income come June but good luck with it. Knowing the Tories it will be near impossible.

The thing is in most European countries when people are unemployed/sick whatever the various governments have always paid circa 80% or so of earnings. Here the tory bastards would have you believe they're being extremely generous and we should be thankful.

It's a bit like kids medicine whatever the fuck it's called. Just like blackcurrant I'd say. Not fizzy at all. As flat as a witches tit. Me mate had a sip and nearly threw it back up. Must be an acquired taste. To be fair though last week he did actually chuck up cos he did a shot of port.

I have never voted as a blue. When this pandemic hit no government would have been prepared for it. We have been misguided, misinformed and disillusioned but the basic guide lines make sense; Wear a mask where appropriate, wash your hands regularly and keep your distance. Simple but logical actions so, why do we have so many stupid bastards who think they know better and are contributing heedlessly to the the contamination and DEATH rate. We used to have internment camps over here for those that threatened or endangered normal peoples lives. These idiots are doing the same by a different method but deserve the same treatment, lock them up until we can see some normality returning

No government could have been prepared for it. They saw what was going on in China then Italy then Spain and did next to fuck all. The head of the fuckwits went to a hospital to shake hands. No government could have been prepared for it but they could have responded in a quick, efficient, maybe just sensible manner.

Oh aye, and if the NHS was properly funded in the first place then it would be in a much better position to deal with exceptional circumstances like these.

I was bombarded by a COVID denier, anti-vaxxer etc on FB (I know but I use it for FF only) and I need some stats to prove she's an idiot.

So far 4 vaccinations, some slight symptoms but most importantly no one dead. I also think the symptoms may be psychosomatic.
