But with effect from tomorrow (Weds) such scenes need no longer take place in England as, unless people choose to, or have to, self isolate, residents of England will be able to go out to exercise as many times as they like in any one day and travel as far as they like in order to do so. For Wales, Scotland and N.Ireland though the message is still the same. STAY HOME Social ...

Here is Piers Morgan (certainly no left winger)  talking yesterday to Andrew Bridgen (Conservative MP) about the Covid 19 crisis and Bo Jo's speech to the nation on Sunday evening.  Susannah Reid starts the interveiw. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ha2vyuQprnQ

@Leatash - definition of libel = LAW "a published false statement that is damaging to a person's reputation; a written defamation". Your comment about my attitude towards Corbyn is false. I told someone who knows me what you had accused me of. They nearly choked. So for the record and avoidance of doubt. I have no time for Corbyn whatsoever.  As those who know me know. Unlike those ...

@Flo - yes I have seen the Matt Lucas video. He manages to say (or not say?) in about 17 seconds what it took BoJo approx the same amount of minutes to say (or not say).

on the matter of distance of travel (see my second post) - apparently there is no limit on the distance allowed to be travelled. So day trippers it will be down here then and in other touristy places like, say, the lake district?

@Leatash - Please give evidence of that claim you make above as I regard it as libellous!!. and btw - I think you'll find that BoJo is receiving plenty of flak regarding his lack of clarity from those whose politics are to the Right of mine. And unlike your allegation concerning me and Corbyn (for allegation is what it is) I can give you proof of my assertion.

Apparently this is what BoJo means by Staying Alert Stay alert by staying at home as much as possible. Stay alert by working from home if you can. Stay alert by limiting contact with other people. Stay alert by keeping your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible). Stay alert by washing your hands regularly.

I mentioned visitors to the area as we live in a touristy part of the country. Note this as one of the things people can do wef this Wednesday. "Visiting and sunbathing in local parks will also be allowed as will driving to other destinations. " Note no mention of how far people will be allowed to drive (like from Covid 19 hotspots?) in order to reach those other destinations  (like ...

After the PM's address to the nation last night I think I am as confused as everyone else. To what are we supposed to stay alert? An invisible (to the eye) virus? To whom are we supposed to stay alert? Visitors to the area? And to whatever or whoever it is to which/to whom we are supposed to stay alert what is it that we are meant to do when our 'alert alarm' goes off? Please send ...

Not sensitive. Just posting an answer to the second question you asked.
