Makes me disgusted. More than I already was. 

I actually work in a school part time and when the kids were told that it was likely schools would be shut, most of them fucking cheered. It's all just an extra holiday for them. 

Our future as a species is fucked and we didn't need Covid-19 to make it so.

I presume so, for what good it will do. Shop is fine for now, so they've likely moved on to find an easier target. 

Silly thing is business is the best it's ever been for the shop, though my Aunt is working herself ragged. Think she worked from 5AM to 8PM the other day. She went in early because this was the day after the fake card holders were in and she was worried about a break in. 

She is getting people up from London now who have fled the city and taken up residence in rented accommodation long term. All well and good but I fear that someone will bring the virus with them and into the shop. It's already confirmed to be in the village with one family self isolating.

I ordered cat food online. Order cancelled within an hour. Said that their system could not cope with orders but I bought on ebay, so it's ebay's system and the cat food was still in stock after I paid for it. Ergo my order should have gone through. Sellers aren't supposed to list items on ebay that they are also selling elsewhere, but that's obviously what has happened. Angry

Trying another seller but now expecting the same thing.

I'm appalled and yet not surprised. Kids are treating this like a joke. They ought to watch out in the US though, got some real trigger happy folks out there. This is a shooting waiting to happen.

This also appals me.

Really wish I didn't agree with this, but kids seem out to prove it right now.

Local school broken into last night. All food left in the fridge and freezers stolen. Actually, they stole the entire freezers.

Some kids are still at school if their parents are in essential services like the NHS. This school now has nothing to feed those kids with today. 

Also heard about food banks being broken into up and down the country.

Disgusting crimes.

This type of behaviour needs to be treated as a criminal offence. 

I saw a clip of a load of kids in a line with 1 lolly. First one had a good suck on it and passed it the next and so on until they'd all had it in their mouths. Bunch of fucking retards we seem to have bred in this country.

I agree Paul, they need to be identified from these videos and arrested.

While I wouldn't wish Covid-19 on my worse enemy, going to have to confess here that when I read earlier than Harvey Weinstein has it my first thought was 'it couldn't happen to a nicer guy'.

In all seriousness, this feels like one of those things that is going to get worse before it gets better. World's going to be a very changed place at the end.

If it makes you feel better I, and a few work colleagues, thought the same about Weinstein.

My entire company has gone onto working from home as of today. New Zealand is going into a 4 week lock down starting tomorrow. I really, really wish I hadn't read so much apocalyptic science fiction over the years. There is such a thing as too much imagination...Confused

I suspect we might be about to do the same. Boris is due to speak to the public at 8.30.

And you know what? I'll be happy if we are. The Brits by and large are being fucking stupid over this. We need harsher measures to try to curb the spread of the virus. On Mother's Day it was really sunny and the Brits flocked out in droves like they normally do, ignoring all guidelines. On the last day the pubs were open, the Brits also flocked out in droves, not giving a damn about social distancing. We need a lockdown.

The army is mobilising here, just in case, to shut down any dickheads who are ignoring things.

Of course, we all gave up our guns last year, and now we're a completely helpless unarmed society, and the government can do what they like to us.Wink I really should ignore American gun nuts online...Smile

The police have been given powers here, but around here it's always the same question: what police?

My town has no police. We haven't had any law here for years. We get a drive through and maybe a stop and patrol of the high street from the nearest ones in the district every so often, but an active police presence has been AWOL for a long time. If you call them for any reason it might be days before they turn up to take a statement. It's bloody ridiculous. My town has so much more crime these days because of this.

And it's all very well Boris saying get food delivered, but it's impossible to get home delivery slots from anyone, even Ocado and that's what Ocado does. In fact Tesco won't even load tonight and Sainsburys is refusing new customers.

There are still people doing this in Italy apprantly. You'd think with almost twice as many dead as China everyone would have got the message by now.

Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil did an eye-opening interview about life in Italy right now, where she mentions this. But also that the shops are full, so panic buying is not required by anyone.

After Boris's speech tonight I'm wondering if I can still get my car serviced tomorrow. Booked in for 8am so can't even ring them to find out if they are still going ahead. I guess we still need to keep vehicles running though even if we're only using them for short trips to get essential food etc. Think I'll just turn up and see what happens.

Has your garage got a website where updates might be posted? Or a Facebook page? 

Personally I'd assume they won't be open.

^ I had a look and nothing there. 

Bet there's a lot of people don't know whether to turn up at work tomorrow.

As I understand it unless you're in healthcare including chemists, food production or sale, or other industry deemed essential, work is off unless your job enables you to do it from home. Got to stay home and try to manage on only one trip for food a week. Though Boris did say it's okay to get out for exercise either solo or in household groups once a day. 

Thing is with that, I went down our local river walk yesterday early and the amount of dog walkers out congregating in groups talking and blocking the footpaths was horrendous. I think we're going to have to set up a daily exercise routine in the back garden (probably ruin the lawn) or maybe get that Wii Fit board out of the shed that we never use. 

Thought Boris looked really tired on his announcement this evening. I know a lot of us Brits have been critical of Boris and especially of his early lax strategy for Coronavirus, but I do feel sorry for the man. He has one of the hardest jobs in the world in normal times and he is only human like the rest of us.

I honestly think that it should be made illegal for pricks like this guy to procreate. I mean unless he seriously wakes up how is he going to bring up any kids he might father? Certainly deserves to be through in jail IMO. Charge of being a threat to public safety through wilfill and selfish disregard of others.

^ Unfortunately guys like him are nothing new. Think's he's God's Gift, centre of the universe, etc. 

And judging by his picture, that guy doesn't know how to use sunscreen. Guess he doesn't give a damn about the dangers of skin cancer either, so long as he can still party? 

If he does grow up and get a bit of maturity, hopefully he'll look back on this five minutes of infamy with utter shame. Same for anyone else acting like him, which sadly is not only his age group.
