We havnt got a fekkin clue on what the best course of action is. There are times when you just have to accept there are people who know more than you. And accept their advice.
Even the scientists cant agree, different countries cant agree.

So why not let it play out with the vulnerable being cautious?
You are middle aged with a poor immune system (hundreds of thousands of people this applies to). You have a family and live in a well populated area.

Every single person around you ends up getting it (likely under your suggestions). How easy do you think it would be to avoid getting it and therefore avoid possibly dying?
I would expect those who come into contact with those vulnerable to be sensible.

My mum is nearlly 70, suffers with illness, suffered a stroke so we have decided phone calls are best option for now.

A friend who is 70 is on hospital in Yorkshire with a temp off 41.5, non responsive, suffers with alzhiemers and parkinsons. Will not risk visiting until its safe (he may not make it).

It wont go away by people hiding away from it. It will kill however many it kills whether it takes 1 month or 12 months.

All this incompetent Govt is doing is slowing it down causing harm to many many businesses.
I think you have a very idealistic view of how easy it is for people with families in well populated areas to cut themselves off. How do you stay alive without having any human contact for months.

Your suggestion, more people will get it. The more that get it, the more vulnerable the vulnerable are. It's simple altruism.

I do partially agree with you in that the current approach is neither here or there. I'd much rather we had France, Italy or Spains approach with a clear mandate rather than "advice" so that the govt dont have to take responsibility. Those other countries have promised that no businesses will be allowed to fail because of this. This corporation focused govt couldnt give a fek about the common mans plight.
We partially agree. The Govt are not helping the situation and dont care about the people outside their inner circle.

Oh I live in a highly populated area so do understand the difficulties I just feel people need to take measures that are right for them and those close to them.
Thinking of one.

Virgin asking their staff to take unpaid leave and also going to the govt with cap in hand asking for a bailout. RB is worth 4 billion pounds and is getting extra business to his healthcare business from the govt. A system which pays little to no tax.

Meanwhile Amazon are forcing their battery hen factory staff to work overtime.

But at least we got brexit done hey.

because things like that never happened before Brexit or under labour governments, because no 'labour' people have ever been dodgy

You do know that Branson was vehemently against Brexit?

Only a complete idiot would bring brexit into this discussion.

Isn't it funny how, when capitalists are turning a profit, socialism is evil. But when things go bellyup, socialism is the answer.

What I find annoying, is how people think there are only two options. Socialism and Capitalism. And "socialism doesnt work" so we are stuck with capitalism. That's it.

We live in a socialist country - that is what its detractors often fail to realise. The NHS, welfare, roads, bin collections, fire services, police, education - these are all services provided by the state through taxation. There are only different shades of socialism.

It seems like Australia is following Dr Ginge and cracking on - flyers for the Victorian Easter Weekend events have just appeared on the WDF website. I think they are the only country that are not postponing or cancelling events - Bruce and Sheila are showing the way!
