I don't see why we would stay locked down for months. Hospital admissions will slow to a trickle within a few months if we stay in lockdown. That makes no sense - once we drop way below capacity, they'll ease the restrictions and turn them back on again as we approach capacity. 

 

Trouble is capacity at the moment is being achieved by cancelling all non-urgent surgery and other procedures, and you can't do that indefinitely, so what constitutes "capacity" is necessarily going to be lower in the future.

 

I do think you're right though, in that they'll be eager to ease the restrictions ASAP even if it means imposing them again soon afterwards, same as they were eager to avoid the restrictions in the first place. People need to be introduced to new concepts things slowly (for better or worse).

Good point, I need my pacemaker replacing this year, so you cunts can stop in the house and shut your fucking gobs for the next 6 months. 

 

It's gonna get mental when we start doing the corona hokey cokey though. Imagine the first day they re open the pubs ffs. :lol:

Once the antibody tests come in, I think maybe they will introduce badges, perhaps to label people who aren't immune. Something like a star maybe, could be worn as an arm band?

I read a suggestion of a passport type document.

 

Edit : for those immune.

The high street is fucked now mind. Intu will be gone. Places like Fenwicks. Thousands of food and drink outlets gone. Tourism fucked. Manufacturing ditto. It's not going to be easy. 


Rents man :lol:

Honestly, what? The high street was on its last legs anyway. Intu were teetering on the brink of administration. They own shitloads of shopping centres. Eldon square, Metrocentre, Arndale. Fenwicks also very precarious. I don't think these places are reopening which is pretty sad. Disagree if you want but I'm interested to know how we can avoid this and what the implications are for normal life. 

 

Tourism, what do you think will happen? Do you think Nissan will reopen in Sunderland, when nobody can afford a new car? You can't close down entire industries for months, possibly repeatedly, and expect no consequences. The world is going to be different. That's not alarmist or unfairly depressing, just fact.

I got put on furlough today, ffs. Oh well at least I can go out...... Oh....... 

 

On a serious note I've been thinking about volunteering but seriously shitting me pants about it. I know it's a little selfish. I was thinking of maybe volunteering at the local pharmacy to deliver meds to people.

Pharmacy is a cracking idea as they’ll have adult nappies.

While they rake in the profits from your free labour?

Plus we could do without a mass shooting in a pharmacy right now, ta.

I've signed up to the volunteering thing but still don't have my access to the app confirmed. Think you'll have to go through the official thing to do prescription delivery though cos that's one of the thing I signed up for.

Tonight Gove used the nationally televised press conference to lie to the country about why there is a shortage of tests. I cannot stand that little cunt.

If you want to help deliver drugs, meet me under the bridge at Jn 27 on the A1.
