This latest bubble lark...single households bubbling with another household is causing a lot of confusion out there. 

Seems you can go to her house and bonk your girlfriend, but you can't get in a car with her or exercise (additional exercise they mean I suppose) - and you can't stay overnight.

Instead of rushing out the decision, they should have clearly listed the rules from the outset. Piss poor govt communication and organisation yet again. You can't make this shit up.

I am predicting as a result, a large increase in cases, not a decrease, as of Mon/Tues next week....and this lockdown not finishing until we are well into May.

 

 

I think a lot of bonking & meeting up has been happening anyway judging by the continued number of unknown source cases as people are obviously being untruthful about where they've been for fear of being jailed for breaking restrictions.

Some epidemiologists being interviewed on Sky News this morning were saying exactly the same thing about the UK, ie they'll be in and out of lockdown for the foreseeable future (not just May), simply because they're not enforcing the restrictions. Anybody else see the throngs in the protest scenes from Hyde Park yesterday?

Why have we got so many then, buses & drivers?

Because we’re the international gold standard for bus procurement and testing? Long buses, short buses, mini buses, bendy buses, single deckers, double deckers...if there’s a new version out, put us down for at least 25 (per year).

I reckon you’ve almost written a bus song there. Well done. Lord Longtail should record it.

I see UK never getting anywhere for a long, long time.

Isle of Man needs to go for local eradication as before, and whatever that may entail.

Take back control from a position of safety.

Don't think it is going to happen though is it.

Regarding the stats, when it is reported that so many have come from 'known sources', it is seen as being better than 'unknown sources' of course.

But we need to know how those 'known sources' were transmitted. Were they family members, and was the infected family member isolated? Was it from being in the same supermarkets?..or pub?....or whatever. And for how long was there contact.

Etc.

The stats are ok but only up to a point. Someone needs to provide further information. No, not because I am a nosey cunt, but because we all need to know that information so that we know better how to protect ourselves and others.

Come on Henny, either do this, or find someone who can.

I wonder how many other jurisdictions on this planet, currently struggling with the pandemic, would give their eye-teeth to "only" have a population of 84k on an island surrounded by a minimum of 20 miles of water to sort out?
