I think we can safely ignore YOUR dribblings... 
 
Salmonbuddie could be just as right by complaining about all those younger f**kers of his own age who WILL persist on going to gyms, “as if nothing is happening”!
This inept Tory government is not doing anything about that.  A government should be doing ALL in its power to do the best for all of the people, not just its paymasters.
Nor is the government doing anything about the panic-shopping and emptying of supermarket shelves by all ages of people, “as if nothing is happening!”.  Churning supermarkets packed with people and all queueing and coughing, side by side...
Divide and rule is an old Tory ploy.   Boris plays it well.  They want anyone but themselves to be seen as the Baddies.
Trivial slights against one particular section of society does nothing to cast light on the reality that we’re all in this together.

Except that my dribbling are right. As always.

The ONE particular section in society I’m talking about is vulnerable people who are out and about ignoring government advice.

If these people stay quarantined then it doesn’t matter if the young fcukers get it. It’s a mild illness for them. Better we build up herd immunity and get it all over with.

The destruction of the world economy will have serious consequences for the healthcare of the whole country going forward.

But hey, you continue with your right on leftie slogans. That’ll fix the problem.

As for salmonbuddie, he’s almost as big an arse as TPAFTWAT



Love you too, mate, big hugs.

Latest news shows that a 26 year old has become the first to be arrested for refusing to self isolate. 

We shouldn't need police officers to put themselves at risk to deal with irresponsible behaviour. It's right that we condemn all sections of society who refuse to act responsibly.

How's the 3 people who told you the army were getting ready to shoot looters getting on? 

They sound right wallopers. 😂😂😂

Careful, you'll have the flag wavers upset now that you've pointed out that Boris and wider government might not be responding as well as they could have since the first case was confirmed at end of January.

My apologies...  I was/am fully aware of the non-capitalisation.

I believe it was capitalised at the start of the sentence by... a bot!

The Cap'n persists in talking passé-provocative mince - other than when he regurgitates his long-ball game, for which I have some empathy...

Well, unsurprisingly, this has whooshed you utterly.  You are supporting my dribblings, you silly arse!

IoM government made a clear statement, laid down rules.  Someone broke them, fell foul of the full force of their laws and is being punished.  QED

 

The government of the UK is not doing that.  The govt of the UK is thus acting irresponsibly.

Boris spaffs suggestions and whiff-whaff waffling against a podium and we are all left none the wiser.  It is left up to individuals to interpret what is best.

Support small businesses like pubs, gyms, cafes as the govt SEEMS to suggest that those MAY not be the best idea...   or totally self-isolate?

 

We may have noticed some flaws in Gordon Broon and Alistair Darling when in Government, but - IN THEIR TIME OF CRISIS - they were fully focussed on what needed to be done to ensure the banking system didn't collapse.  They  took swift decisive action and laid down laws.  We need people in authority to act in that kind of way right now.

Who could've predicted that Gareth Southgate and Gary Neville would be providing the leadership at this time.

This, as expected, is now hitting "us" and, as such, is becoming more real and emotive. (See a few posts above)

I spoke to a mate from Paisley last night, laid off as work has stopped, not reduced, stopped completely in the business he's in.

When things like this happen people's opinions and emotions change.

I'm aware my opinion has been that this has, somehow, been treated as something akin to the end of the world.

Not forgetting that every number is a person and that has an affect on family and friends.

When people lose their jobs this can have serious consequences and cause real worries.

The numbers, and we're well into this now worldwide, do not reflect the reaction by some IMO but have also been reduced by actions of some countries.

10,048 death worldwide.

I think, and is only my opinion, that overall this has been handled well by governments.

The British public have shown extreme reactions, both good and bad.

Plenty great stories of people helping other's along with the more obvious madness of panic buying.

One good thing, Ricky has reduced posting his usual drivel, surely we should rejoice? 

 

Aye but you haven't so it's not all good news. :P

If you, or you know anybody, and I unfortunately have a family member who is in this group, have been unnecessarily panic buying, watch this and be ashamed.

fwiw, my Saturday bevvy bunch, All fit, all runners, all 40 - 80 yo, has just set up a WhatsApp group - just for the purpose of using pubs.

we normally just stagger in randomly to various pubs,  but the Blitz spirit is kicking in.

 

Yes I think it probably is.

Went down to the town centre today and it's as busy as it normally is.

If the governments force closure then and only then will we see people staying close to home but as long as they fail to announce this most of us are perfectly justified in carrying on with our lives. Of course we'll think carefully about where we go and what we do but anyone who thinks people will be bullied into anything needs to think again.

He’s right though

 

These people are losing their jobs to protect these old fcukers are who are still out socialising as if nothing is happening

 

The government has told them not to do it and why

 

But they’re ignoring the advice

 

 You’re the one always banging on about people needing to take personal responsibility

You are, as usual, getting mixed up.

Old people are not being told to stay at home to avoid spreading the virus. They are being told to stay at home to protect themselves.

Those people have every right to decide for themselves what risks to take without the likes of you barking orders at them.

It's younger people who are more likely to be carriers.

If Sturgeon and Johnson are seriously bothered about movement of people they would have announced a lockdown.

Until then.....bugger off and give us all peace.

That's the Isle of Man who have their own legal system for this type of thing.

Not like you to mis-represent things. :lol:

It's funny how this is bringing to the fore otherwise hidden personality traits in people I thought I knew well. I have been chatting to a friend of over 20 years who has informed me had stockpiled a three-month supply of food for Brexit, and is now busily adding to that. He also has 60 litres of diesel. He told me that he's buying goods he would ordinarily eat regardless, but that won't expire for months or years, so he's not wasting money in the event that nothing happens. 

He said that he's quite friendly with his neighbours, so if it all goes tits up he'll chap their door and kid on he's not got any food so as to dip into their supply first! :lol: :lol:  It'll also mean they won't come begging from him, he reckons. 

I had to wind him up, so I said it was great that he has all this food, but can he defend it from people like me who knows he's got it?! That annoyed him, and he mentioned something about a crossbow! :lol: The world's gone mad.

Marina Hyde has wrote a rather clever and cutting article for the guardian
https://amp.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/mar/20/boris-johnson-covid-19-prime-minister-brexit?CMP=share_btn_tw&__twitter_impression=true
Now, it's a bit political in bits and doesn't show the "glorious leader"Johnson in a very good light so the usual dummies will be spat on here I'm sure.

It is however rather funny, even the non political bits.

The Buffoon has far too belatedly shut the stable doors:

 

Cafes, bars, pubs and restaurants must close tonight

Johnson says the government is strengthening the measures announced on Monday to avoid unnecessary social contact.

Following agreement of all the four nations of the UK, Johnson said all cafes, bars, pubs and restaurants must close tonight.

Nightclubs, theatres, gyms, cinemas and leisure centres must also close on the same timescale.

Boris is beyond parody. Today’s measures are welcome as far as they go. However, the so-called key workers, of which I am one, are amongst the lowest paid groups of workers in the country! We see Universal Credit increased by £1000 a year for a single person. Nurses, council workers and civil servants have not received £1000 increase in the last decade combined!!! But we are suddenly vital key workers, getting partronising video messages from ministers and senior management about how great we all are. No increase in salaries obviously. Of course, once this is over, once again austerity will be brought in and once more we will lead the way in being hammered as an example to everyone else.

Aye, and this will be used to justify stifling future wage increases.

I don't envy Boris, given the circumstances. It's really unprecedented this scenario. At least with a war their was an obvious, tangible threat. The problem with this virus is that unless one is categorised as high risk, the effects are likely to be a mild illness, and therefore many people don't see it as a major problem. Plus some folk believe it may all turn out to be a fuss over nothing, with a very low death rate.

An unprecedented support package improving daily and responding to the people’s needs.

A measured and appropriate response and very supportive of all sectors as far and probably beyond what is reasonably expected.

No other government and certainly never a labour government would match this.
