News of our kitchen has spread around Bham - we've been doing deliveries over but now there's a Q at the door each night. Planning meeting tonight to decide how to cater/cope. Heartbreaking stuff. And

If he sees Paul Weller or Johnny Marr wear one he'll soon change his mind.

My condolences man. Ouch

What's your middle ground between opening up and lockdown? 

I don't know but there has to be scope for social activity and there has to be flexibility around working. Like there's a pragmatic answer and an ideal answer and even the ideal answer is less than ideal

The North East going in to additional lockdown restrictions from Friday. 

We were told at work today that authorities appear to be preparing for full lockdown measures for Lancashire.

Just back from Lowes, a hardware store near me. Signs everywhere "wear a mask, stay 6 feet or more away from other people."

Even the store employees weren't all following the guidelines, never mind fellow shoppers. 

It has to be a conscious effort to ignore the advice being given. Some people are selfish b*****ds.

We now have a tupperware box,  with masks in, by our front door. A small sign says. "Please take and use a  mask if you do not have one. Thank you. "

At least these requests are being followed.

That article mentions a total ban on socialising with anyone outside of those in your own household, indoors or outdoors, but you can still go to the pub and mix with strangers until 10pm - bit odd

Cash register = OK has been the rule for a while now and whilst the Tories consistently poll at 40% they'll continue to do what they want because what are the repercussions for them?

Don't worry - the pubs are enforcing social distancing

A run-down of the past few weeks/months...

  1. Been back in office on Tuesday/Thursday with Tech team since early July
  2. Late July/Early August, one of our Sales team tests positive...all the Sales team have to get a test.
  3. Techies are in on a different day, so no crossover with the Sales guys
  4. Mid-August, huge lightning strike borks our on-premise...everyone back WFH
  5. Kids back at school - eldest in secondary, youngest in last year of primary
  6. Youngest develops a cold, she's now off sick (hopefully ok tomorrow)
  7. I've now got a poxy cold after 6 months of not having any fecking illnesses
  8. Colleague of my wife has a child with symptoms; 4 days before she can get a test so she has gone private (at the cost of £150) to find out sooner rather than later as it potentially affects the job (wife is an early years practitioner)
  9. PUBS ARE OPEN!!!!!!

Gotta get those beer sales up.

Florida bars re opened on Monday at 50% capacity. Local people tell me that rule is NOT being enforced.

Local schools re opened in person, massive outcry as sporting events are cancelled when kids/coaches get positive tests. 

Priorities are totally screwed up.

Both my daughter's are full of what looks like just a normal cold. Seems like half the schools have it. Shows how effective these social distancing measures are working in schools.

I'm sure the Government will be tripping over themselves to put the blame on school staff for not enforcing things better soon enough.

It's curiously worded to say that they didn't actually "enter the racecourse". Not that they didn't travel there, or that they didn't go in a load of pubs on the way there and back, which is just as likely to have caused it. Almost like they're defending having the racing take place.

"Nothing wrong" is an interesting take on it.

It's not the walking into a racecourse, it's the mentality of getting on a bus to go on a bender with a bunch of your mates & stopping at a bunch of pubs all over the country. 

It's f***ing mindless behaviour.

Being on a bus or being in pubs aren't as likely to have caused it as being in a vast lowly populated outside area though is it?

Caused what? They aren't responsible for the spike in cases if they were in Doncaster over the weekend and it was Wednesday when that reporter originally claimed they'd visited the racecourse 

It was ridiculously irresponsible

The rush to judgement is dreadful

Why shouldn't the racing take place?
