  1. I think it's down to inconsistent supply chains for each supermarket brand rather than excessive buying. We have an Aldi not too far away and it is well stocked with everything including paper goods, pasta and flour but the Co-op in the same town has had hardly anything on the shelves daily, including milk and bread, for weeks. Sainsbury's and Asda, a little further away, are now getting their stock levels back up with few shortages.
  2. You can think up as many hypothetical situations as you wish but for what purpose? IF you were in the UK making this journey and IF you were stopped and IF your explanation was not accepted by the Police you may be fined. IF you contest the fine the Court would decide whether your short journey for personal hygiene purposes was essential or not. IF you were in the Philippines you might simply be shot for being outside your house.
  3. You do realise he is carrying out the official opening by video link from, I believe, Balmoral and not attending in person. The 'opening ceremony', if you can call it that, will actually be a speech in praise of NHS and other essential workers.
  4. Gordon, as I understand the situation, the Govt. have applied a temporary (up to 6 months) exemption to those motor cycles, cars and van's required to undergo the annual test (MOT) on or after 30th March and the due date of all affected vehicles will be automatically extended so that VED can still be paid when due. There is no provision within road traffic legislation that permits a test certificate to be valid for less than 12 months so we must assume that requirement will continue to be the case and the only way to get your dates back on track would be to resubmit the vehicle on the required date next year. However, you are not obliged to utilise the exemption and if it's possible you can arrange a test for when it is actually due. Nothing on the DVSA systems will prevent it. As an example, there is nothing to stop you having a brand new car tested at one year old even though exempt for 3 years. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-mots-for-cars-vans-and-motorcycles-due-from-30-march-2020
  5. Sorry, you've lost me. The question asked was about car insurance. The cancellation of his model aircraft insurance simply popped the car question into his thoughts.
  6. That couldn't legitimately happen now. The minimum motor insurance required in law is third party liability insurance which must cover injury to any person or damage to anything except your vehicle, it's contents or load and any trailer it is towing and it's driver. Your passengers and their property are third parties so are covered.
  7. I don't think you need worry. It is highly unlikely that cover would be reduced to third party only (they wouldn't void it completely). In any case, why would a responsible and law abiding citizen such as yourself be making any non-essential journeys? You're not planning to travel with your wife and collect any items bought on Ebay or to deliver a fence panel to a family member are you?
  8. As BG says, you are in the At Risk not the At High Risk category: Solid organ transplant recipients People with specific cancers People with cancer who are undergoing active chemotherapy or radical radiotherapy for lung cancer People with cancers of the blood or bone marrow such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma who are at any stage of treatment People having immunotherapy or other continuing antibody treatments for cancer People having other targeted cancer treatments which can affect the immune system, such as protein kinase inhibitors or PARP inhibitors. People who have had bone marrow or stem cell transplants in the last 6 months, or who are still taking immunosuppression drugs. People with severe respiratory conditions including all cystic fibrosis, severe asthma and severe COPD People with rare diseases and inborn errors of metabolism that significantly increase the risk of infections (such as SCID, homozygous sickle cell disease) People on immunosuppression therapies sufficient to significantly increase risk of infection Women who are pregnant and who also have significant heart disease, congenital or acquired
  9. The advice to contact the 111 website (or phone if no internet) is for those in the At High Risk category. That is the 1.5 million that have been contacted by letter.
  10. Whilst I fully agree with the need for restrictions, unfortunately the policies are presenting peculiar anomalies of unfairness which do not readily prevent hoarding. For example, Sainsbury's have restrictions for no more than 3 items except the most popular such as toilet rolls, tinned foods and pasta which are restricted to 2 items. A multi-pack is 1 item as is a single. I can buy, whilst in stock, two 4 tin packs of baked beans, that's 8 tins. When out of stock I can only buy two single tins. I can also buy two packs of 24 toilet rolls but when none are left I can only buy two packs of whatever is left, normally packs of 2. Guess what disappears off the shelves first!
  11. You will get a variety of views and opinions but only your view is relevant. Wash your hands before and after. Take hand sanitiser if you have some.
  12. Profile says OP has an Ace Jubilee. They last posted in August 2016 with a battery problem in a 2004 Bailey Pageant and never came back after starting the topic. Hope they come back to clarify the points raised on this one.
  13. When I read this I thought you were at the Pearly Gates!😄
  14. Nostradamus apparently said a lot of things, much of which would even surprise him. Bet he never saw that coming! 🤔 Many frequently claim that he predicted whatever major event had just happened.
