We got told we were going on furlough on Thursday night, effective from tomorrow as that’s the start of our next pay period. Happy enough with that while I’m not able to work atm.

Oh good, more Simpsons memes. It must be WyattSheppMask's day off.

In other news, there was an arson attack in Liverpool yesterday...on a 5G mast, because of the 5G/coronavirus conspiracies. Christ.

Probably on the blame list for the premier League not being on.

Blimey. What would happen if they convinced everyone to stop clapping and there wasn't a buzzing noise?

They'd probably say that the government have been hacking Whatsapp and found out that we'd cottoned on to their scheme.

We thought it was a relative of Stevie G.

Maybe it asked to be moved to the big money, next big thing 6G, then had a change of heart and stayed loyal to 5G.

I think the people who are whinging online are those who haven't been out and are relying on facebook and whatsapp for info, which is inevitably incorrect. I still have to go to work every day and the buses I get morning & evening have maybe 2 others at most on them, plus rows of seats are blocked off for social distancing and downstairs is reserved for elderly folk. You have to line up outside shops to get in keeping 2m apart, and when you get in they have staff making sure aisles are one way and checkouts aren't crowded, plus cleaning folks wiping down after each customer.

City centre and my local village centre are a ghost town, only the homeless and addicts living in hostels that kick them out all day are knocking about cos they've nowhere else to go. Lots of fucking disposable gloves disposed of on the ground and in shopping trolleys instead of in the bins, cos people are stlll lazy pricks!

City centre's are empty because very few people are having to go to work in them, the vast majority of shops are closed and public transport in and out of most of the cities are running dramaticallt reduced services.

Yes the majority of supermarkets have a lot of measures in place but there's still a lot of people ignoring them.

Yesterday all within my time in the shop alone I saw -

a woman with her kid around 8 both coughing whilst leaning over loose fruit and veg, neither covering their mouths.

the person directly behind me in the queue ignoring the tape and attempting to stand less than 2 feet behind me.

someone touch around 10 different melons as they picked which one they wanted.

A guy wearing a facemask take it down to lick his fingers to open a carrier bag.

People are still going out, they're just going to different places. I have to do a lot of driving with my job and see an alarming number of groups who don't appear obviously related in all different age groups and assumed social backgrounds wandering around, touching and carrying on as though nothing has changed.

Yesterday was very moderate weather of about 10 degrees but dry and all the public parks were full of groups of people socialising, playing football, short tennis, sharing bags of crisps and sweets, drinking. 

In England I see the weather seems to have been nice today and lots of photo's and video's doing the rounds of plenty of people in parks and beaches enjoying themself like nothing is different.

The vast majority of people are following the rules however it's next to never the majority that fuck things up for everyone else, it's the minority.

The ones who aren't doing what they're told are the ones who are going go end up far more like to be spreading and/or getting it.

They're going to end up coughing or sneezing or touching the food we all buy and eat in the same supermarkets we shop in because when they do get sick they wont follow the rules about staying home until they're physically unable to do so as they've already displayed their inability to follow simple instructions.

Then some of them will end up taking up ventilators that those following the rules aren't going to have available to them.

Some doctors/nurses will end up having to be the ones to make the decision to take people off of ventilators and leave them to die so the ones who didn't do what they were told can have the chance to live.

Those doctors/nurses will have to live with that for the rest of their lives and some families are going to lose loved ones without even the dignity of a proper funeral all because there's still far too many people too selfish, arrogant and inconsiderate to do what they're fucking told.

It’s annoying to see people playing footie in the parks when the rest of us are locking ourselves away.  Usually on a day like today we’d drive out into the country and go for a walk along the downs but that’s just not allowed.  I’ve only left the house once in 2 weeks to go get food, besides going for a couple of runs.

So much for the Blitz spirit.

This is worse than people actually playing football in the park.

Up here in Scotland pictures have surfaced today of Chief Medical Officer, Dr Catherine Calderwood visiting her second home near the coast in Fife with her family.

This woman is on the television and radio giving instruction on how deadly this virus is and how important it is to abide by the rules she has been involved in setting.

Now she has been caught doing that. What fucking hope do we have of getting the general public to do what they're told?

UPDATE

They held a press conference and showed it live on TV. Sturgeon said the CMO is very sorry and she's apologised to her.

The CMO spoke and said she actually has done it the last two weekends and it best to admit that now. She said she knows she's made the job of her NHS colleague's and Police harder and she is very sorry.

They had questions from media all of whom asked was it appopriate for the CMO to continue in her roll to which Sturgeon in turn repeated that the CMO was very sorry.

I can see the point that the CMO here no doubt is very talented and is providing vital advice at the moment however my issues are as such,

1. What worth is vital advice if the one providing it is publically seen not to be abiding my it

2. Are we to believe there isnt a single person in Scotland who could offer the same advice or expertise?

3. We don't seem to be doing anything different than what's suggested by the CMO in England so why not continue to follow their advice?

4. How are the ones breaking the rules supposed to take them seriously when the First Minister says the one setting them said sorry for breaking them twice in a week so it's ok?

5. How are the Police supposed to enforce the rules under the same circumstances?

6. How many people's lives will be put at risk or lost now some people will be taking her advice even less seriously than before?

7. How are NHS staff who dont have the correct PPE equiptment supposed to feel when the CMO is behaving in such a way?

I have no time whatsoever for mad Boris but imagine his CMO did the same then they just came out and said they were very sorry and continued on. I have no doubt she's a highly talented woman but it's not a mistake, she wilfully ignored the very advice she's constantly on TV and the radio saying is a matter of life and death to follow. Madness.

Went for a run, I just needed to get out having spent 18 days indoors.

It was awful, but only because I felt so ‘wrong’ and it was utterly dead and surreal outside.

I kept thinking I was either A) risking our health by doing so or B) going to get stopped and asked where I was going. I saw next to nobody which helped on both concerns, until I turned into a road and saw a full-on street party that I had to either run through or turn right round and go the other way. Music, shouting, dogs, about 12 people.

I Called 101 and they said the probably won’t be able to get there due to the high volume of calls about people breaking Covid rules. People really are fucking shit.

Edit: this may explain it
