  1. I’ve tried to find a barbell and just a few plates. Literally everywhere is sold out... I went out to decathlon just after shit hit the fan, and they had nothing, literally nothing! So I’m on the look out.

    Corona Virus

    Stupid people are still out there, and no matter what restrictions they out in place they will continue to defy them. The amount of crimes committed on a daily bases by some people just show that you’ll never get everyone singing from the same hymn sheet. However, having said that the majority aren’t a problem, the streets of my local village are baron, there’s not a person in sight. Im talking more about people who’s current mental state is not good. There’s a lady who lives near me, she’s not elderly but she has her problems, but she is now living in fear, so much so that she isn’t going out to get food to eat, and it’s because of statements like “20,000 people may die”, she firmly believe she will be one of them. They need to be careful when delivering messages, the death toll alone should be a stark reminder of the seriousness of the situation. As I’ve mentioned, you could put a curfew in place of 9pm, flood the streets with soldiers and someone will still leave the house, it is human nature to push the boundaries, and some will take great pleasure in trying to do so. I just think they need to be very careful with what they say, facts and figures are all well and good but they need to be used correctly.

    The government need to be very careful. I’m all for honesty and transparency but when delivering messages they need to ensure they down fall into the trap of scaremongering. The tactics of yesterday’s press conference were very much scare mongering. I do not think comments like “uk will do well to keep death toll under 20,000” are a wise thing to say, this may well be case, but now is not a time to scaremonger and force people to live in fear. Information will help people follow the guidelines and stay safe, fear simply fuels their anxiety.

    Corona Virus

    It will be interesting to see what the figures will be like next week. This week is going to still be pretty alarming, as the isolation period is only days old, we won’t see the snowball effect for at least two weeks I think. Healthy people need to really stay away, I’ve not seen my mum for three weeks, due to the fact she has chronic asthma and has had pneumonia, twice. So I’d say she’s high risk, so by locking myself in I massively reducing the risk of her getting it... hence why it’s so ****ing annoying to see some people just ignore the advice. The death toll will gradually decrease, as will the infected number too. I think by week three we will be at a much better place, and we can probably lift this restriction somewhat. I don’t envisage a complete lift until the end of May/June..... but we will see.

    It will certainly prove that most offices will be able to close for periods. There was a huge push from charities supporting mental health to look into reducing the amount of hours are spent in an office and away from families, friends and other out of work activities. We work far too much in this country, and if this proves that we can operate on shorter days and shorter weeks then it could be a major stepping stone to restructuring the working week for some people?

    Surely nothing will change until there’s a vaccine? It wall always be there, parts of China are set to lift their lockdowns but what then if it starts to spread again? By bringing the country to a haunt, it might temporarily halt the spread, but will it not just accelerate again once restrictions are lifted?

    Perhaps not, but the fact the NHS a have been telling the government for years that they can’t cope with the constant corner cutting and lack of significant investment has eventually taken it’s toll. I agree no world health service could cope, but surely there is always a threat something like this can happen? It’s life, and often that is what is forgotten. There’s no denying this pandemic is stretching the NHS beyond belief, but the concerning thing is they were stretched before, and this is not acceptable. They didn’t stand a chance from the offset. Similarly like the police, who don’t have a cat in hells chance of implementing these new restrictions across the county.

    That’s the thing, all of this stepping in paying wages, what happens when things return to “normal” and all of these companies that haven’t been making any profit have to then pay their workers? Won’t ****ing work will it. It’s all well and good locking the country down, but then what? Perhaps if the government hadn’t been arse ****ing the NHS for the last few years they wouldn’t have to start frantically Flapping. This isn’t the result of a virus, this is a result of cost cutting and what happens when shit hits the fan.

    Which is exactly why the country can’t just stop. The announcement the other week has simply glossed over some of the bigger issues. The first thing that should have happened after securing the future of the NHS should have been ensuring self employed personnel had the correct backing, which in my opinion they have failed to do. But also how does this parachute payment protect businesses? What if a business relies on its turn over to simply operate? With wages covered what happens then? Won’t that just ensure the workers get paid until this is blown over? And then the business likely has to fold because the world has effectively stopped for three months? Everything has happened far too quickly to have been thought out enough in my opinion. On a side note what are the government proposing to do about those who suffer with mental health problems, who’s life depends of social interaction? Now more than ever if is important that we reach out to those who need it, because I fear this will only make their situations worse.

    I could wonder around my village all day, naked wearing nothing but a clowns hat, and Boris wouldn’t have a ducking scooby doo.....

    It’s impossible for them to lockdown this country, as I mentioned earlier we simply do not have the resources to facilitate such a request. London perhaps, they have 32,000 cops, including detectives can can throw a uniform back on. Outside of London this lockdown will have little impact.
