Recommended Posts

Help for none essential  retail ?

I have left this past week adverts run out and not renewing, I don't do deliveries unless they have viewed the car in person at my premises, stay safe everyone :)

Off to get me hair cut, the little I have got left :P

Its not Joe Public its the test & trace which has failed. In theory, this is the solution:

1. Get the baseline cases down to a low enough level so that test & trace works properly
2. Aggressively track the new cases (via test & trace) so that restrictions are very localised and targeted, leaving the rest of the country in relative normality

The system hasn't worked though, so the restrictions were great swathes of the country rather than being focused and localised. 11 days to get a test result back is useless. They were hoping and crossing their fingers but in the meantime its gone up and up again (viruses do that....) so another harsh national lockdown is needed sooner or later. May as well be sooner so there's a glimmer of hope that Xmas isn't affected, because if it runs into Xmas about 0.05% of people would actually comply with a "don't meet in households" restriction.

Really it all boils down to the virus doesn't have any obvious symptoms for many so, many don't take it seriously, it's more an inconvenience to their daily lives. 

If it simply caused a couple of large pussy warts to appear on the end of ones nose with ZERO other health effects, I would put my pension on the fact that things would so very different.

....social distancing would be taken seriously rather than mingers breathing down my neck at supermarkets et al, no house parties, no public demos, no piss ups at the pubs, the feral mask less would be a rarity, people would actually wash their hands (fuck me a lot don't even after a visit to the bog) etc. 

And I guess more would sign up to TNT as opposed to a minority that have at the moment.

Main agents around here will still be open, workshops as normal, sales for click and collect.....can't see much changing to be honest. 

MOT stations open too. 

Only go to work if can't work at home

Sort of a 'dry' plastic lockdown then. :D
