Many heartfelt thanks for all the kind replies. I am feeling much better today, I've kept myself busy organising things which has actually helped. Dealing with personal effects is especially hard and

I’ve noticed more people lately in the supermarket either not wearing masks properly or not bothering at all. As for that flight it’s probably the norm but has only come to attention after the positive tests

We went to the Quayside market on Sunday. 
 

I’d say only 40%, at best, of the people there had masks on, social distancing was a distant memory, and no fucker used the multiple hand-sanitiser stations that I could see. 
 

We didn’t stay long :lol:

In Scotland masks are mandatory pretty much everywhere, including pubs and restaurants when you're not sitting down. I'd say this was impeccably observed except one pub in Oban where literally no fucker wore one. It was a Spoons as you might guess, we didn't stay.

 

Was at a pub with a beer garden just over the border in Berwick yesterday. Went to the bar wearing a mask and I was politely advised to remove it! I was upsetting the scratters apparently, none of whom were socially distancing at all. One of the punters was hooked up to a nebuliser too,  I overheard another saying it was all a conspiracy. Shame, it was a lovely beer garden too.

Was in the back of a taxi last night. Naturally the driver thought it was all a hoax. :lol:

I think some people do it on purpose although I have little doubt many are thick as fuck. And the two aren’t mutually exclusive

If you want to avoid twatful behaviour, I would recommend not spending any time in pubs. 

 

Beer gardens are one of the pleasures of summer. I think they're safe enough. Now summer is over however I'll give pubs a miss.

Exactly this my son was in "the local" on Sunday afternoon and he said it was just like the old days, no distancing, nowt.

Once weather is too shit for beer gardens, I'll be a home drinker

Ive never been in a pub since it all started, you couldn't pay me to go in one if I'm honest.

You'll have people in pubs every day, coughing and splurting all over the place and never get the virus. 

Knowing my luck, I'll pop in for a pint and catch it straight away. 

Not worth it.

Been past a couple of local pubs loads of times recently when walking the dogs and at one of them you can see right in and it’s definitely business as usual. I saw about 10 people sat round one table all next to each other. I wouldn’t mind but it’s absolutely fucking shite.

Job retention scheme changes from today

Companies using the government's coronavirus furlough scheme are now having to contribute to workers' wages.

Since March, the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme has paid 80% of the wages of workers placed on leave, up to a maximum of £2,500 a month.

But now that is going down to 70%, with the employer paying 10%.

  When the scheme ends (31st oct) i think thousands of workers will be made redundant.

In Germany their scheme is running for two years to save jobs.

Campaigners representing families whose loved ones have died from coronavirus have accused Prime Minister Boris Johnson of being "heartless" in declining to meet with them.

Covid-19 Bereaved Families for Justice said it wrote to Mr Johnson five times to request a meeting.

Asked by reporters about the letters, the PM said he would "of course" meet anyone bereaved by Covid-19.

But days later he wrote to the group to say he was "unable" to meet them.

The group, which says it represents 1,600 families, said it was "devastated" to receive the letter, which it has made public.

I hope the media don't let go of this one and force him into a suitably humiliating u-turn and embarrassing meeting with the people whose loved ones may well have died because of his ineptitude.

I’m sure I’m not alone in being so surprised to find out that he’s a fucking coward. 
 

He should be sent a white feather for every death. 

What a cracking idea !!

Preferably dusted with anthrax or the like
