So they've said non essential shops in Leicester are to close for another 2 weeks, but the horse racing is still going on there today? 

Am I the only one thinking they made this decision by either sticking a pin into a map, or picking a town name out of a hat?

Everyone from Leicester are just going to drive to another town/city aren't they. They can't possibly stop or control that, can they?

Exactly. We’ve never had proper lockdown. Other European countries had checkpoints, paperwork, people only allowed out certain days etc. We had a semi lockdown in comparison. And we’re trying to catch up without having properly containing it. But it’s the public’s fault for not following the guidelines, not the government

These things usually seem to come from Asia in modern times, does anyone know why this seems to be the case? 

extremely high population density, plus livestock generally being kept in closer quarters to large numbers of people than we're used to here, plus lax regulation on meat.

It’s almost as if the horse racing industry with its headquarters in Newmarket made sizeable donations to the Newmarket MP who also happens to be health secretary.

Working near Leicester town centre and it's still busy out. Combine wishy washy messages from the government and combine it with general stupidity and you'll have the kind of ignorance you can currently on the streets of L-Town.

Pretty sure that's how they do ALL their decisions no?

I always imagined some kind of spinning around blindfolded and sticking a pin in something, or having a wheel they spin daily.

It's actually nothing new, even the Black Death originated from China they think (although that's simplifying it a bit) however as now it was Europe where it did the most damage.

We’ll know for sure once the Holy Stone of Chlonrichert gets upgraded again

Cancelled our family holiday to Greece last week. Lost the deposit, but wasn't prepared to take a risk. Gutted, it was going to be the first ever holiday abroad for just the four of us. If only I'd conceived a PM as offspring...

Could always eat a bollock on the telly mate, amazing what people’ll let slide for that.  Instantly transformed from cunt into ‘character’.

When were you due to fly out? I'm heading to Spain at the end of the month and still have every intention of going.

Later this month. There isn't any point, it's not going to be anywhere near the holiday we originally envisaged when we booked, and for quite a lot of money for us.

I guess that's true. I'm going to leave mines until as late as possible before cancelling. Nothing to lose really in doing so.
