Stupid people with no consideration for others.

Recommended Posts

Another example of stupid and anti-social behaviour.  See :- https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-51990534?intlink_from_url=https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk&link_location=live-reporting-story    

The NHS advice is to self isolate at home, not galavanting around in the caravan or motorhome. :angry:

This is typical moronic thinking as well as being totally selfish,ignorant and self serving.

They should be identified by their individual registration marks and issued with an eye watering fine and if they try ducking it then send the bailiffs in and let them suffer the wrath of genuinely disgusted people that are complying with what is the sensible and decent thing to do in these trying times.

"Given concerns over the impact of tourists on local NHS services and food supplies, Welsh Ministers must issue guidance to holiday parks and tourism operators in Wales. 

We have seen a recent influx of visitors coming to stay in caravans!"

Listening to the news today, the same thing is happening in Cornwall at Easter.  The Councils and MPs are asking people not to visit as it would be hard on the NHS and local supermarkets and shops.  So those with second homes or caravans/motorhomes, do not go

So where are they camped?  On campsites?  So why do the Highlands Council not do something about the campsite owners then.  Easy to rectify

We went up to our storage site today, mainly as we're out of loo roll and had to collect our supply from the van, and we were amazed by how many missing caravans there were.  People really don't get just how serious this will get over the next few weeks.

Why are there currently two people that have posted confused images on my post ?

 

Surely they are not some of those that are out there without any thought for other that are complying with the advice that is well publicised.

 

Surely there is nothing confusing about my post - tell'em how it is !!

Its a bit like the pubs situation, until the Govt closed them down it was not taken seriously.

NB: The C&MHC are still claiming to be "there for us" so implying nationwide availability.

Further ambiguity.

We are booked into a Cornish site on 5th May at present but would not fancy being stoned by the locals on our way through St Austell en route.

Looks like 2020 is going to be Cntrl-Alt-Del

The sooner everyone realises that and knuckles down the better.

If the Government don't want us to travel then why don't they order the caravan sites to close? They have done it with the pubs and restaurants so why not? I will say again If the sites which I am visiting in May and June are not closed then we will be travelling! No need for a tin hat:excl:

Is the screwed up face bloke just doing it on this and other threads because:

A. He is genuinely confused

While contributing absolutely nothing to the local economy - no wonder they're not wanted.

 AND possibly using scarce hospital resources so that locals have limited access. 

 

Obviously these "well stocked" motorhomers will be some of the ones who have raided the supermarkets and selfishly denied those in need from getting food and other products.

 

Sad - really sad.  Me,Me, Me !

If the OP needs an answer, just read the replies. 

Says it all really. 

On behalf of the Lakes, please keep away as we don't have the resources for all the visitors.

Wandering Lancastrian---don't bother about the person who posts confused icons on your posts.

There is a guy on here does that to most of my posts---he maybe gets a kick out of it.

Well stocked motorhomes---but where is the stock coming from??---probably not their local supermarkets.

A friend from Aviemore has just emailed me to say  that they have had people from Glasgow shopping in the village !!!!   Mental.    Furthermore, a bloke at the till was shouting at the manager because he had goods taken from him. When the locals behind him in the queue realised he had an English accent, they were going to lynch him and had to be restrained. (Maybe a campervan owner??)

These idiots who overbuy are obviously  completely ignorant of how the food chain works.

After a cow gives birth it starts to yield milk. Any attempts to stop this makes the cow very ill and possibly death follows.  A similar  scenario exists with hens laying eggs.  There are silos full of wheat waiting to go to the bread and biscuit makers.  Large chilled sheds contain potatoes waiting for processors to buy them.  Fishing boats are still working.

As stated on TV today, there is no shortage of basic foods in this country, and drivers hours regulations have been relaxed to allow longer hours for distribution of foodstuffs.

There seems to be a massive problem with "Sheep mentality" amongst the population.

Some "well stocked motorhomes" will have been so equipped for travel prior to this latest crisis. Ours certainly would have been had we planned to go away again soon. As it is our MH is rather low on the basics as they were run down during my stay while attending the February 2020 NEC show each day, and the fresh food purchased locally at the time will have been consumed before returning home. While we always travel with the basics onboard, I am a great believer in supporting the local economy when visiting an area, especially by eating out, and seeking the smaller specialist shops.

They may also not be MH owners but people living locally. We have friends whose only homes are just south of Inverness, and neither own a caravan or motorhome. One couple, although living in Scotland for many many years still retain their Yorkshire accents, the other couple who moved there more recently have a South Wales and a Midlands accent - are they to have to fend off angry folk with Scottish accents as well? 

 

Remember that not everybody is as selfish and inconsiderate as some appear to be.

Even though my email from Sainsburys chief exec said there would be limits on buying groceries it ain't happening at our local.

Until such time as supermarkets are compelled to start rationing we will continue to see panic buying. Human nature is very self destructive.

It could well be those attaching the confused emoji are actually confused and do not understand the posts since they are thick. However, as found in a recent topic I started, it seems people use this emoji for various reasons only they understand and since they do not add a post saying what they do not understand, this emoji is meaningless and should be ignored if it appears. I certainly will never use it and when it appears against my posts ignore it and is nothing to be bothered about.

Can I perhaps clear up this "English Accent" issue.

Aviemore area is a small community. There are people living there from far flung places.

Because it's a small community, the local shopkeepers know almost everyone living in the area irrespective of their origins, and would be happy to serve them.

To show how stupid some members of the public are, my wife's carer told us the following story.

She visited an old dear client on Friday as per usual. On arrival, she met the old dear's daughter who was having difficulty in moving kitchen appliances &  stuff. On enquiring what was going on she was informed they were making space for an EXTRA deep freeze for the old dear, and it was due for delivery that morning. After installation, she was going to the supermarket to buy food to Fill the freezer. Where  is this austerity the lefties keep rabbiting on about???

Just out of interest, where do these wild camping motorhomes get their fresh water, and dispose of rubbish and toilet waste?

FWIW ......

We rapidy escaped overland with self isolation, in Car & Caravan from Spain, arriving very relieved on Tuesday night under the EU ruling of returning travel to home for EU / UK Citizens. 

The UK soft advice restrictions currently are not unlike the Spanish situation was about two weeks ago.  To update yourself of what may lay ahead have a read on 'Olive Press' or 'Spectrum FM news' or :-

Await critic and 'confused' tabs as to relevance.

FWIW ...

In Southern Spain, where wasteground wild Camping of M/H's is very widespread and almost an art, they were nicknamed on our site 'the plague of the great un-washed'.  In some regions it is banned.

Water is scrounged from local beach showering points or a garage water point, tip out is splash it all about in the forced open beach public toilet or lift a drain cover or in the bushes. There are very many fancy UK reg vans alongside fancy EU reg ones - its really not new age travellers !  Very occasional visit to a sites / Aires - hence nickname.

Await critic.

Perhaps only a single full stop in a whole paragraph confused them? 
 

It’s not an emoji that I use, because I think it means ‘this post is from a moron’ and I’d rather quote and put my point across than hide behind this emoji. Likewise, if I was genuinely confused I’d quote and ask a question.

How do you keep motorhomes, or caravans, stocked with fresh produce - or how are they replenished?

 

The authorities in several tourist areas have requested that visitors don't travel there - in many people's view it's irresponsible to travel to such areas given that advice.

 

In the Highlands, motorhomes already have a bad reputation due to the dumping of waste by a minority - ignoring local pleas not to visit will only inflame that situation.

I can imagine if you lived in a small house with your grown up children but owned a caravan it might be very tempting to up sticks and go somewhere quiet.  Imagine five people self-isolating in a two-up, two-down with only one toilet.
