We will need a new post-lockdown thread for the UK soon.

I'm still working the piano.

yup. Slug Gove has already said it.

Wrong side of the new year is my guess.

Starting to regret 'doing the right thing' with wedding suppliers for the original date and wondering how many will repay that generosity by moving dates again as early April isn't happening is it.

So BoJo walked out on Theresa May when she was questioning him - and a very excellent question she had.

Dunno what happened to BoJo. But he's lost his mojo. Odds are we have a new Tory PM this time next year?

The Sage forecast for COVID the Government is using predicted a daily death rate of 1,000 by now and up to a peak of 4k deaths per day. May was pointing out the reality was a fraction of that so she was asking for clarification on numbers as we're making major and rather severe economic and social policy decisions based on a certain group's forecasts that, frankly, have never come about.

I look forward to seeing the cordoned off shelves of non-essentials at the supermarket. That I would already be at the supermarket apparently doesn't make a difference.

It was the Welsh "Government" that banned supermarkets selling none essential items but the Scottish "Government" may have done the same, who cares. BoJos constituency is in England which appears to be the only region of the UK that does not think its a country in its own right. Who is paying for all these "Government's" to come up with all this BS thankfully not me. The zero intervention forecast to which May was referring was prepared by consultants base on annual Coronaviruses infection and applied the Covid-19 being in circulation. No matter how many governments he hire none of them appear capable of supervising a civil service to generate a forecast good or bad.

The UK rules are a shambles, each devolved government should be utterly ashamed of themselves for not working together on consistent tiers and rules (I include England as a devolved one there).

That being said, nobody seems to give a shit, I've been back 5 days and out and about shopping / lunching and whilst some people try to keep some distance when you're in a shop it's just back to normal.
