Boris is not in charge.... he is following orders.


So who is giving Boris and the UK government orders?

Yes that's who.....that's my guess anyway.

Well, that sucks.

But this can't be complete without a British meme. . .

Bus services in my area are cut to sunday service. My local co-op and Spar sell out fast. My motorbike may be my only way of getting about soon but I don't have a CBT and nowhere open to do it. Might just have to risk breaking the law.

Same problem is going on in Denmark... people go to the beaches and woods and so on. All with the mentality of “i would like to so Im allowed” /massivefacepalm


Same in Australia. thousands of people were laid off yesterday and the government website they were told to go to rather than attend welfare offices, were so inundated that they crashed.

Same today.

That's over 90,000 people suddenly out of work.

And I fear it's only going to get worse.

*You can leave your home to exercise but just once a day


I am guessing sales of lycra and tracksuits will go through the roof as everyone will suddenly be out "excercising"

Oh dear... you may be right. I fear you're right!

I once heard someone suggest that wearing lycra should be a privilege not a right... I'm not sure they're wrong.

So if a country is on lockdown, social distancing in effect with criminal action for violation possible,

What happens to trial by a jury of one’s peers?

No way to keep ones distance in the jury box (US courts).

And with an uncertain duration, a speedy trial is questionable.

That is just the way it will be then? One high profile trial in the UK has already been compromised by jury members being isolated. I am sure trials will be suspended or cancelled over the next few weeks. When normality starts to return the courts may be allowed to run long days and weekends in order to clear the backlog.

Guardian article

I expect Magistrates Courts (in the UK) to keep functioning at some level, if not to maintain a process of remand (in custody for serious offences). After all, to cite a legal maxim; justice delayed is justice denied.

*And travel on roads, trains and buses was also banned, unless it’s essential to get to work. ???


are we not allowed to drive our cars to a supermarket to get food or pharmacy, or drive car to the bank to pay bills?

Of course if you leave your home for legitimate purposes you can use public transport or your car. It's just that public transport is being pared back. Sometimes I really wonder if people have lost all common sense and the ability to think.

The estimate is a million, I suspect it will be much higher, 85% of our workforce is in the service industry.

You mean nothing changes for you.
Where are you working - in an industry deemed an essential service?

It's the WHO and they are corrupt. We will find out why when we see the reaction to the crisis.
