Mate, in London a load of pubs are open, cafes are open, restaurants are open, businesses are open. Plenty of people are walking around as if nothing is happening. They are doing this because the communications from the govt have been 100% f***ing woeful and inadequate. You can't blame people for going to work if the govt hasn't guaranteed that they will still have a job or an income if they have to go home for whatever reason, or if they are merely "advising" people not to go to pubs rather than f***ing closing the bloody things down.
France did all this days ago. If they can, we can. These Tories just don't give a f***.
