it's criminal because we all knew it was coming. they could have got ahead of the virus by locking the country down last week - we are still pretty much open for business. it's ridiculous. the government has placed far too much faith in behavioural scientists, i'm afraid. it's like they don't think people will obey a curfew until they experience the shitstorm first hand

 

Aye. It we had the benefit of foresight and still fucked it up. Our trajectory is now exactly the same as Italy's and there is nothing we can do to stop it. Its terrifying.

outside exercise still allowed

for now 

 

It'll last as long as people aren't dickheads about it. I've been running so wide around people on my runs that you can actually see the curves on Strava. :D  Someone'll spoil it for everyone though, they always do.

It is fucking madness that there are people needing to be kicked out of pubs tonight. You don't realise just how stupid people are.

£1000 increase a month in UC and housing benefits. Should help a lot of people.

The worlds landscape will be changed for the next decade. America will have it ten times worse than us too. It can go 2 ways though, either we pull together like we did following WW2, or the Cummings and the like use this as an excuse to ramp up control of the masses permanently.

 

Good luck to everyone on here, I hope most of us survive relatively unscathed both medically and financially

It’s mad to think but the Tories winning the last election has worked in everyone’s favour. If Corbyn had just announced the welfare package Boris has the Gammons would have been frothing at the mouth for years to come

Maybe after a grip is gained on this and it all calms down the Tories might have developed a heart and some humility. There's no doubt the landscape of society has changed forever, it certainly has changed the whole life perspective for many.

If any of you think that they’re doing this for anything other than the economy then you’re fools.

This is as big as WW2. Bigger in some ways. I mean at least then you could go to the pub, cafe, or have a bite to eat. And at least you could see the enemy.

 

All medical research at Newcastle Trust (the largest centre for clinical research in the UK) has been halted. All focus is on coronavirus now, nothing else matters. I hope I get redeployed to play some part in this. I'd actually love to get back to the labs.
