If you’re delivering food/pills etc, or other essentials, then yes..if you deliver cakes, probably not. If you deliver exhaust pipes, maybe. Bit of a minefield..

Can still go shopping for the needed goods ... Still don't see how this is a lockdown ??

To me a Lockdown is when your not allowed to leave your home/house or must be in by a certain time ??

He didnt say the word Lockdown - because it isn´t one when you can go shopping once a day and cycle and excercise in parks.

In our Lockdown here in Spain I´ve been outside my door twice in 9 days - chemist and food shop once. The wife has been out once in that time - a different food shop.

We are not allowed out to excercise at all and the highlight of our day is taking the rubbish to the communal bin on the street about 50 metres from our front door.

I think he should have gone further - and will probably have to soon

He’s advised by the epidemiologists/virologists.. basically he’s the messenger. Corbyn or Boris, the advice would likely be the same..

Labour, conservatives, SNP.

Wales, England and Scotland.

The same message from all 3.

Not a political or personal issue. This is what the experts have said is needed. Disagree with the experts by all means but dont shoot the messengers.

He didn't say shop.once a day.

He said

Shop for basic necessities as infrequently as possible.


Big difference

He tried to give us a chance and treat us like adults. Unfortunately the idiots at the tourist spots at the weekend have made it impossible to treat all of us as anything other than morons. Hard to believe how idiotic people can behave, but having read a poster's comments on this forum at the weekend it becomes obvious why these measures have to be taken, and even then not certain everybody will abide by the new regulations.

ever considered our experts might be correct....or even the experts in the majority of Europe are correct...and the 3 countries who have locked down the hardest just might have got it wrong ?
its early days... but at the moment those three countries are amounting for 4 times the deaths of the rest of Europe combined { most of which is not on total lockdown } ...it might turn around for them , might , and its possible in the long run they've got it right
but looking at the figures right now ..highest death tolls on our continent ITALY, SPAIN.FRANCE. and more than 90% of deaths in those countries coming after lockdown how can you be so confident that whats happening here is wrong , and what they've done is correct.?

I know for alot of people this would be obvious and was always coming, but a fair few on here took the P*** at me for saying that.

I wasn't wrong though. This is certainly going to get alot worse before it gets better.

I'm relieved though that this lockdown is happening, because finally we will start seeing improvements naturally with people staying inside. The "beat this in 12 weeks" campaign was always an ambitious one, and although I can see it taking a hell of alot longer than that, I personally see this lock-down being the beginning of the end of this virus, weather that's 12 weeks or 12 months, atleast it starts now.

It's been so demoralizing waiting and waiting to start ticking days off knowing full well we couldn't start counting down yet as people were not listening to the government. Now they have to. And the wait begins. We'll get through this IF the lockdown is as strict as I'm hoping... God I hope they sort this Self employed support out, that's the only way this lock down will be fully effective, otherwise you'll have people working still (Because they'll have to in order to maintain their house, bills, food, etc)

They took the p**s because you were guesstimating without any more knowledge than any other 'bloke on the street'

I note your absence for a few days since and now you're back to say 'you told us so!'

I don't think so, fella and most of us (me included) have abided by the rules in place to date! ;)

Now, for those in the real world, lets see what Boris has to say, shall we and then comment...? :thumbright:


You’ve been picking at things I’ve said for every single post I reply on. I have been sharing obvious information. I haven’t said “a bloke on the street told me”. I have openly said I’ve done my own research, with official information and REAL doctors and REAL scientists opinions.

When I made a post about how young some people have died, I was just chucking whatever articles I could find just to let you all see the reports, in that I included an article from the sun that I never would have shared had I realised who it was, although what they were saying is along the same lines as the real information, so that can’t be an arguement to say my posts are “guess work”. At the end of the day everything I said 2 weeks ago before even our Cardiff game was cancelled has so far proven true, so if I am “guesstimating” Then so be it. Everyone including Scientists and Doctors are GUESSTIMATING. Nobody knows anything for certain, other than stats and figures (which even they are questionable). So stop with this attack on my opinions and my accurate guess work. Everything I said has been obvious to me then, and obvious to everyone now. I could have been wrong, and I definetely wish I was. But I’m not pretending I’m a wizard who can see into the future. I was just obsessed and worried about the virus since late Janurary so I’ve taken an interest in it. Stop with the constant belittlement and either take what I say or leave it, you don’t need to
Keep telling me I’m guesstimating. I KNOW I AM.

I thought we voted Labour in Wales which is why earlier this evening Mr Drakeford explained what was happening here in the same way Nicola Sturgeon explained how Scotland would deal with things. Can't understand this political point scoring when no party has ever had any previous experience of dealing with anything remotely close to this before. I think they are all doing their best and we will know just how good their policies are when this is finally beaten. Even politicians I would never normally give the time of day to have impressed me, and none more so than Chris Bryant or Andy Burnham.

The elephant in the room. I'm amazed that the world media isn't more outraged about these markets. I remember seeing all the live chickens, turtles etc tied up in tight bags in Hong Kong in the 90s. I couldn't believe it. It was cruel, disgusting and surely a disease waiting to happen. I'm no expert though. It just seemed gross.

Saying that, here in Oz we cram loads of sheep and cattle in confined spaces and ship them live to Asia so I guess we could start something like this to but again, I'm no expert. It just seems dodgy just to save of refrigeration costs.

Updated figs from the Gov : 422 have died and 8,077 have tested positive .

There are more out there who have not been tested with these figs - now almost doubled from last Saturday's figs .
