Weve gone from no briefing today to a hastily arranged one at 8.30pm after cobra meeting.

We maybe about to go into lockdown.

It's a shame that society has to always pander to the stupidest people.

Well that's us in lockdown. Personally think this should have been instigated earlier, however pleased to see the governments of the United Kingdom taking these measures, as the general public have proved to be too irresponsible to follow their advice.

They won’t care, they have rooms full of toilet rolls, beer and rotting veg, selfish barstools.

No time for that, some of us have to continue going to work.
Yes, not from an armchair but actual work.

First day of lockdown for me. My business paying all staff 100% of their basic salaries, so for me I will be treating staying at home as paid holiday.

Going to use the time to chill out, get plenty of sleep, watch loads of box sets and drink copious amounts of beer.

Only fly in the ointment will be if the supermarkets run out of beer. :grin:
