  1. And what was the leadership of the UK Government doing at the same time? Remember, this was weeks before Cheltenham races, before Liverpool vs Atletico, before Boris Johnson was going around shaking hands with Covid-19 patients...
  2. Been an RVS/NHS volunteer since the start of April, and have had half a dozen “alerts” so far. Four have been for prescription collection, but the other two had no idea why I was contacting them. Even so, I had a long chat with both as they were self-isolating and were quite pleased to have someone to Talk to.
  3. Perhaps because the current government is doing such a cracking job of dealing with the crisis? So far, it can be summarised as far too little and far too late. Too late on starting testing after deciding back in March not to do test/track/trace. Two months late on even considering testing at borders, especially Heathrow. Allowing Cheltenham races and Liverpool football match to go ahead even though they knew how bad the virus was. Not closing down pubs, clubs, and anywhere people gather. Need I go on? Starmer has been willing to work with the government, and has supported their (late) approach to lockdown, but it’s not a free pass. He will call out their failings when he sees them. Just as you would expect the leader of the opposition to do, irrespective of which party is in power.
  4. That’s the trouble with arbitrary statements like that. There are many folk over 70 who are far fitter and healthier than people half their age. If you don’t have health issues, then provided you observe social distancing, why not get out and enjoy the fresh air? Good for mental health, too.
  5. Those with microwaves fitted by Bailey have cut-outs for ventilation and for the mains cable to route into the cupboard to the left, where a socket is installed. The factory-fit Daewoo microwave is mounted on a plywood plinth and secured using wood screws (!) from underneath.
  6. I’d suggest that if face masks finally do become compulsory here, countries like Poland seem to have the right idea. They have set up vending machines to sell face masks for a nominal sum (8.8zl is about £1.70). A lot less than a cup of coffee. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-poland-vending/vending-machines-selling-face-masks-appear-on-warsaw-streets-idUSKCN21S1MJ
  7. They are different countries, which work together on some things through the EU but still retain sovereignty on many (most) matters. In a way like how England and Scotland are both countries within the U.K. but have different legal systems.
  8. Having signed up for the NHS Volunteer Responder scheme, as well as my local council’s initiative for distributing food, I did check whether I needed to notify my car insurer as like many, I now only have SD&P cover. This is the statement from the ABI which says that anyone volunteering does not need to contact their insurer... https://www.abi.org.uk/news/news-articles/2020/03/information-for-volunteers-using-their-car-to-help-fight-coronavirus/
  9. Why not go and get the leaflet from the shop which shows it.
  10. If all else fails, ALDI are advertising caravan stuff on sale from Sunday, including both blue and green fluids.
  11. Mr Plodd quoted me. You assumed that I was Scottish and launched your invective against Scots, and Nicola Sturgeon in particular. I’m not sure how good your geography is, but I’m from Nottingham. Which is in England.
  12. Indeed. We went to both ALDI and Sainsburys today. At both stores, people were waiting patiently outside, complying with the two metre separation. Nobody was panic buying, and apart from beer, wine and frozen food, shelves were well stocked.
