  1. Well what a surprise, no one saw this coming did they, apart from the people that didn't go out panic buying because they knew that you can only freeze so much of your food so no point buying it if it will be thrown away. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/coronavirus/outrage-as-bins-overflow-with-brits-out-of-date-food-bought-in-coronavirus-panic/ar-BB11QPyP?ocid=spartandhp
  2. Just copied the story below off FB, this is the reason that people are being told to stay at home, who knows what will happen when you go out. Just what the NHS doesn’t need right now. A lady decided to drive from Sheffield up to Houndkirk road all to walk her dog. After getting to the moors she walked through the gate ignoring the signs saying that it was unnecessary for people to be up there. While walking her dog she has tripped and broken her ankle. An ambulance was sent to get her and take her off to hospital. The only reason we know this is because dad was up on the moor checking the sheep after another sheep worrying incident taking the total to 6 incidents this week.
  3. Just found this on the Government website. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-mots-for-cars-vans-and-motorcycles-due-before-30-march-2020
  4. From the Mirror website. Coronavirus: Drivers to get 6 month exemption on MOTs under emergency measures. What happens to road tax, will they alter the system allowing people to renew the tax as well? https://www.mirror.co.uk/money/breaking-drivers-6-month-exemption-21750396
  5. The Government are looking to allow the suspension of refunds for package holidays to protect the travel industry from going under. Mr Shapps is expected to agree to companies issuing credit notes enabling the holidaymaker to book a new trip within two years. Any customer who does not redeem the voucher can then claim the sum in cash. If the travel firm goes bust in the interim, financial protection will be provided by the government-backed Atol scheme. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/coronavirus/package-holiday-refund-rules-to-be-suspended/ar-BB11xNWV?ocid=spartandhp
  6. Woman in front of me in Asda yesterday had 2 or 3 of the large packs of beer. Marvellous you are limited to 3 bottles but can buy three packs of 18 cans, they should make it one pack limit.
  7. On Sundays programme there is Wednesday v Derby in 1993.
  8. I just got back from Asda and there was a lot of meat, and milk, lot of empty spaces on the tinned fish and tinned meat shelves. There was not one sliced loaf on the shelves, they had their own breadcakes and they also had fresh bread from the bakery. Wasn't too busy with quite a few just having a basket while some others had trolleys that were full to the brim.
  9. And they are asking for money from the Government like some of the other companies. Isn't it marvellous how these companies who were moaning when Flybe asked for help now do the same and it is ok.
  10. Asda have said they will also stop shoppers buying more than three of any particular food item. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-51941987
  11. New opening times Asda Drakehouse. Tuesday 6:00 AM - 12:00 AM Wednesday 6:00 AM - 12:00 AM Thursday 6:00 AM - 12:00 AM Friday 6:00 AM - 12:00 AM Saturday 6:00 AM - 10:00 PM Sunday 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Monday 7:00 AM - 12:00 AM To help manage our stores at this time, stores will be changing their opening times to help fill our shelves to meet the increased demand.

  12. Will Boris start to follow other countries and their attempts at stopping the spread. Israel's PM has authorized the country’s internal security agency to tap into a vast and previously undisclosed trove of cellphone data to retrace the movements of known people who have contracted the coronavirus. But it must still be approved by Parliament’s Secret Services Subcommittee. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/techandscience/to-track-coronavirus-israel-moves-to-tap-secret-trove-of-cellphone-data/ar-BB11gorG?ocid=spartanntp&MSCC=1582141003
  13. Staff at Amazon are being told to work overtime to meet demand, I never knew there was such a thing as compulsory overtime. So much for taking care of their staff, 27000 staff and 17 warehouses so there will be a lot of social contact between the staff. Profits first, people second? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-51921916
  14. As the title says they are closing their stores putting 2900 jobs at risk. They will still sell phones in pc world and Dixon's stores.
  15. Two brothers who stocked up on 17,700 bottles of hand sanitiser at vastly inflated prices have been forced to donate them for free. Matt and Noah Colvin paid less than $1 a bottle, they had hoped to flog the bottles online for up to $70 (£56) each after snapping them up for a fraction of the price. Good to see they got what they deserved, nothing. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/us-news/brothers-donate-17700-hand-sanitiser-21701316
