  1. To think furloughed people are out sunning it up without a care in the world is a bit daft. I wasn't furloughed straight away but my job relies on jobs coming in to the business. Obviously that has dried up and there's no need for me to be there till work picks up again- if work picks up again. It's concerning knowing that the second the scheme ends the furloughed staff will be in the firing line for redundancy, that kind of takes the icing off the sunbathing cake. Lastly. Consider turning Facebook off and take note of the real world.
  2. Yeah it's certainly going to rise again however I do feel that these past couple have months have almost forced people to get out use their legs by way of either walking running or cycling and as a result we may see people using cars for less shorter journeys. I live about a 15 minute walk to the shops I've always found it a bit too close to drive so usually walk but a friend of mine has leant me his old bike since I've been off work and I've been using it for probably 90% of my journeys. I have dropped things off over at my mother's house and will be cycling there when I'm allowed to continue my weekly visits so for me it's helped.
  3. Did you honestly think he or in fact any of the other millionaires are doing much different? We all know they're living without worry or care. Most of which have access to personal gyms or swimming pools, enough room to feel better about not being cooped up. I find it more insulting when they pop up online moaning and acting like they sympathise with those in need, I don't buy it. That being said they're in that position and good for them, but don't try and make out they have it bad. I mean my biggest question about that is who on Earth cares less about what Sugar thinks about the government's handling of the situation and how we should steer out of it. Once a week I'm hearing about Amanda Holdens new choice of attire while mowing or going to the shops. Such an inspiration to us. Furthermore the BBC are reporting deaths declining steadily and were recording lower and lower figures. Nice to hear some better news
  4. What would you define as local? I know this was a grey area with the previous lockdown excersice advice. I think if you was to restrict it to your local area you're risking people coming tighter together. I imagine by allowing people to use the countryside etc the idea behind it was to spread them out almost literally over the country so there is enough room. It does take a bit of common sense for the public however. I've been rather tempted to take the bike out for a ride round the peaks but I've avoided it because I imagine it's going to be pretty hectic out there. Maybe the government's slogan should be "just because you can doesn't mean you should"
  5. Yeah the aim was to come across a little sarcastic but your point stands. Unfortunately such is the way of modern media, I can find any amount of information to support my narrative. Whether I'm pro lockdown, pro ease restrictions or pro conspiracy I will be able to find the information to support what I believe. The mind boggling amount of stats and figures followed by contradictory stats and figures from hundreds of news sources and thousands if not millions of people is astounding.
  6. Twitter to the rescue!
  7. A rise in cases as you say was inevitable all of which should certainly have been factored in. I would be surprised if they went back on any of the tiny tweaks they've made but I would also be interested to see the reaction of the public. It's quite odd how I've never really considered the distance between myself and another human till now but despite the moaning and complaining people must have understood that in a shop or on public transport it's very very difficult to remain distant, it isn't difficult however to use ones noodle and act within the rules the best you see fit.
  8. The only sickening and disgusting thing here is peoples attitudes towards those in favour of easing restrictions. Accusing these people of having no regard for human life is outstandingly ridiculous, it's getting exhausting. I can accept people being in favour of the easing of restrictions and I can also see why people may think it could be too soon, but considering this will be around at the very least till next year and possibly even forever, with that in mind at what point do we begin to ease? In your opinion.
  9. I think mat substitute would be the better name for it. A lot of none vegetarian people I've spoken to seem to expect vegetarian meat to taste pretty much the same - which let's be honest, it really doesn't. That being said I do like them, besides the Quorn 'pieces' I just can't get on with them.
  10. Most certainly. I honestly couldn't see anyone standing for it personally. Eventually the public will snap it seems like a fair amount are on the verge already
  11. So far I've not seen many offers of a solution. Do we not lockdown for 5 years, how long, in your opinion would be the right length?
  12. On hold in what way?
  13. Pretty unreal to see what the fellas done. I bet he and most people probably thought it would struggle to reach his initial goal since there are many other fundraisers going on. Outstanding stuff.
  14. This is something I've been wondering. For example the company I work for relies heavy on deliveries from outside suppliers of raw materials and supplies to keep it running, whilst it's not a key industry some of the work can be done from home the physical labour can't... but it isn't a business outlined in the key industries.
  15. Working together would be easy if everyone had the same idea but regardless of how much we like to preach about being kind to each other , helping each other out and keeping calm through any problems we have, at the last second the vast majority have the same "screw them as long I'm alright" mentality. We can clearly see it happening. Poor behaviour from the public if you ask me. I went to Aldi this afternoon, there was quite a lot if stuff there actually but the tinned stuff had gone and quite a lot of fresh meat, but the freezers were a lot more full than I expected.
