    I tend to agree. The rules are very simple. No one is asking Joe Public to go and fight for their country. They’re literally being asked to watch telly. If that’s too difficult or restrictive then stick them in a Corona cage.

    A lot of good things are going to come out of this pandemic. Looks like one of them might be the new form of transport that allowed American drug company bosses to get to Boris' bedside in London 2 and a half hours after he was admitted to ICU

    It's no hardship. But some people insist on doing what they want - even when they don't really want to do it.
    This is the modern trend of self worth through self entitlement, self importance and self aggrandisement.
    It's generally associated with a lack of intelligence and lack of self awareness.
    These people think Manx cats are from Manchester.

    I'll try to give some insight into behaviour in my locality...

    It's a 5 minute drive through suberbia to my (very) elderly parents house. Normally the pavements would be deserted, but now there seems to be some sort of Himalayan expedition in the offing. Couples bedecked with rucksacks and hiking boots striking out into the great unknown of miscallaneous avenue followed by multifarious parade.

    Just stay home and help save lives.

    Hi JoE, just a quick word.

    Your Lollie sounds like a real fighter mate, from birth right up to now so when things get better and you get your OP you need to remember this and fight for her.
    She has just gone through something we can't help with, you are going to face something that is to doctors "routine" (dead easy for me to say never having faced it<laugh>)
    Lollie is now there for you, make sure you are there for her after the OP, it's the least you can do.


    All the best fella, my thoughts are with you and the rest of the forum family.

    I really could have gone into a rant over the last 3 weeks, where people have chosen to ignore the government's guidance or push the boundaries, but I have so far resisted that temptation to do so.

    The main reason for that is because I've always remained private and guarded about circumstances of my own. To put things in perspective, my kid messaged me tonight, as it brought back memories of our experience of St Thomas' and a lost loved one. But Stan sums it up tonight quite simply, no rant was needed;

    'They’re literally being asked to watch telly.'

    To me that hits the nail firmly on the head, seriously it's not a big ask, stop trying to push the rules, the government guidance is clear, STAY AT HOME! YOU are not an exception, stop questioning and say but this, but that, just do as your fooking told.

    I live opposite a corner shop, it's an eye opener how many people walk up the street in groups to go to that shop (not related just mates), he only lets two people at a time in but they still stand around outside laughing and joking in groups.

    We're all standing outside our local supermarket...4/5 metres apart, one in one out and no couples.

    However, once inside human (female) nature takes over and people just can't resist stopping for a chat or shopping alongside a friend. Then at the checkout you feel their breath on your neck but say nothing as you don't wish to appear scared or over sensitive...

    And then your friends or family die and maybe you'll not be so polite next time.

    Gotta be honest and say my local Morrisons have this sorted, you don't get to go and start unpacking until the person in front is paying. I have found shopping quite a nice experience lately :grin:

    You are right about the stopping for a chat inside though, i find it's mostly women and stoners that are the main culprits.

    Centuries of superiority, followed by centuries of a superiority complex don't point to Brits being compliant and subservient to anything.
    Even thick Brits believe in their natural superiority over anyone and anything.
