So what is your job? I guess you can wash your hands in innocence when it comes to good and bad employee?

What did you do for society as a whole that you come here and preach people morals on how, where and why to work.

You’re either a non-Brit or a child as I don’t know of a single person here in the UK who believes in what you’re saying.

That’s the same as me belittling the US efforts and saying their medical staff, social and council services, farmers, police and rescue are all worthless. And they are not. Their president might be, but the core of the American public is not.

And neither is that of the UK.

If you’re from the UK, tell me — how are you using the internet? How are you powering your home? Who’s collecting your rubbish weekly? Who ensures your sewage pipes are working? You have running water?

It isn’t you. It’s a class of people who actually DO things.

How can you be so arrogant??

EDIT: Ah, you’re American. Hence the ‘facist’ slur. You don’t even know the meaning of that word.

You're not alone there noonebutme.

IT does enable us to work from home or indeed anywhere these days.(logged on for an hour at a Theme Park once)

Regular maintenance windows and on call are all well and good but permanently working from home is awful.

I miss seeing the regular faces on the commute, the always smiling Lady in the coffee shop. The lazy walk past the dock next to the Office watching the swans. These interactions at the time seem quite insignificant but are amplified to the nth degree when they don't occur.

Animals and plants are better and more important than you they don't pollute everything and expect things all the time . They don't demand respect respect for being ' vital '

I work and pay taxes for the moronic bottom feeders to receive a living for free.

Just in case that slipped by your razor sharp mind that includes you.

My Sister in Law is a care worker and my Brother is a volunteer first responder outside of his day job.

I've met and remain friends with a number of specialist medical Staff who have always had my utmost respect, not just as its the new in thing for the unwashed look at me brigade.

As other posters have written, there are a very large number of people keeping the country running without whom your pitiful life would be exponentially worse (if thats actually possible.)

So, in keeping with your previous entertaining posts:-

1)What is your background?
2)What good do you bring to the world?
3)What do your family and friends do? Thats always assuming you have any.

I could go on but the kettle just boiled

Exactly. It’s that casual social interaction that i am now really missing and only now truly appreciating.

I love walking from Farringdon up to Shoreditch in the morning and just seeing the world happen. Stopping in at Costa on the way and chatting to the people I now know.

It’s all these little things I didn’t truly appreciate until now.

But at the same time, I fully understand why it is the way it is. While I have mixed feelings on it, I don’t want to see anyone die of Covid19 and if a ‘temporary’ (read into that what we will) lockdown will help stem the overflow onto the NHS then cool. I just wish Boris and chums would have spent these past weeks pumping as much £££ into the NHS as possible to prep it for the unlockdown.

And I do acknowledge I’m sitting with a coffee at my desk at home moaning I can’t go out and ‘play’, while there are people working 14hr shifts trying to save lives or people still on 24hr call unclogging sewage drains, etc.

My plight is a selfish one, i get it. But i think anyone, British or otherwise, who does not understand or appreciate what ‘key workers’ are or what they do is a terrible human being and a ‘PoS’ in general.

Looking at you, DoctorBlueChip

First you say that everyone who goes back working is betraying their fellow landsman.

Then you track back and tell me "we do not owe anyone else anything." So each for their own I guess.

You seem to be confused about your own values and rule systems, if you have any.

"jumped up ignorant Welsh Wally"

Bless your cotton socks, I'm soooo offended.

You still have not or are unable to answer my and the other poster's questions however.

I'm trying to decide if you are really as deluded as you appear in this and your previous posts or you're just sad, lonely and in need of something to qualify your existence. Either works for me.

They aren't unplugging open channel drains in a Nigerian slum are they. All I've ever seen out of key workers for the state is #. The police don't do anything about crime they're a load of crap run by pedophiles . The NHS doesn't know it's arse from it's elbow , in my experience . The teachers I had were nearly all zombified drones who kept my contemporaries captive . What's so good about your sh#tstem you love anyway ? Nothing . It's worthless and given to evil bastards to take advantage of. Best off dead imo

Nope, but when one does get plugged up and sewage were to back into your home, who’s gonna fix it? You??

Apart from police, arrest criminals, protect society and do the best they can when they can. Sure not every policeman is angel but they aren’t all evil.

Takes one to know one, I suppose....


The NHS doesn't know it's arse from it's elbow, in my experience

They do, it’s basic medical training to know what an arse is and what an elbow is. Problem is they dealt with you so the two are same i suspect
. All my experiences with the NHS (about 4 in 20 years) have been fantastic and I’m grateful that I won’t go bankrupt getting an operation unlike the US.


The teachers I had were nearly all zombified drones who kept my contemporaries captive

Basically you were a problem child, stuck up and arrogant and looked down on them. That’s your problem.


What's so good about your sh#tstem you love anyway ?

“Your” system? You mean “our” system. Or, as I suspected, you’re an American just trolling


Best off dead imo

Go for it - none of us here would have an issue with that


Basically you have offered absolutely no evidence or actual examples of all your complaints; you just moaned which is a sure sign that you’re just trolling on emotion rather than intellect.

The NHS isn’t perfect, no one in the UK believes it is. But it’s a damn sight better than what you, DoctorBlueChip, have in America, where an emergency operation without insurance won’t mean mortgaging my home.

To the OP.

Not everyone works for mega corporations. Most people and self-employed work for the public sector and small / medium sized businesses.

The left-leaning Guardian article focusses on pubs, restaurants and sports events. Most pubs and restaurants are bread-line businesses and sports events includes my local village cricket team, so it’s wrong to think it just means opening a vast football stadium.

It's good to start to plan for the relaxation of lock-down, including getting teachers back to work. I see no real issue in opening my village pub as summer approaches, so long as there are sensible precautions. It's in cities and large towns where the inability to socially distance is most pronounced, so why not start in places where the Guardian journalists never go i.e. outside London?

It seems as though much effort has been put into at first increasing the spread via delays and the testing fiasco. Now it seems as though equal effort is being applied to keeping key workers vulnerable by cocking up PPE supply with suspicious consistency. One has to ask what is achieved..?

Well, depriving NHS and Care workers of PPE provides the narrative that we must all stay locked down because they are at risk.

It’s absolutely true that they are at risk and so I willingly follow the rules to help those workers best I can. However, that doesn’t preclude that the whole scenario is possibly being intentionally perpetuated by preventing the delivery of PPE. Remember, the government’s key message is ‘Protect The NHS’. If adequate PPE reached the NHS that message - that emotional leverage - would stop working.

The notion that PPE is a fiasco on purpose makes the wacky Gates theories maybe not so wacky after all; what’s to gain from locking us down? The longer we’re deprived of normality, the more compliant we’ll be in accepting anything that returns us to normality, whatever shape that ‘new normal’ takes. It’ll probably be syringe shaped with ‘GATES CURE 1.0’ printed on it.

It’s a clever trap if indeed that’s what it is, since I for one, chronically suspicious as I am will nevertheless do nothing that contributes to spreading the virus and risking lives. I will lock down, I will follow the guidelines (more so as and when ATS or common sense informs me). I will probably be forced at gunpoint (as a metaphor for FEMA internment) to take the Gates Cure.

Im guessing that won’t happen because that’s where many of the Lords and MPs of influence reside. They don’t want the peasants breeding viruses in their backyards, no matter how unlikely.

People need to get used to the idea of going back to work soon. If they don't want to go back, stay in, and leave your job and let someone else have it. People will have to make a choice to go back to work or get sacked and go on benefits.
