Misleading headline - itís a warning atm nothing more.
Greater Manchester police have said they had to break up 600 parties last weekend .. shouldn’t the focus be on peopleís behaviour and not misleading articles like this?

Some news just in.

Police obtain new powers and immediately start to abuse them.

Anti terrorism legislation anyone?

It was reported on the news a little while ago that the Police officer that said that has now retracted it , saying that he should have chosen his words more carefully.

The police aren't the problem, its idiots unnecessarily exposing front line NHS soldiers to increased risk and unnecessary extra effort from careless actions. - Careless actions cost lives.

As always it's idiots with attitude and no sense of social responsibility. These temporary laws cannot cover every situation, they are just a framework for all of us to act sensibly.

The voice of reason.

When I step out of my front door, within two minutes I can be on a large, very local, recreation ground or in open countryside.
Each morning, I take the dog to one or the other, maybe both, often for well over an hour; I almost never see another living soul and if I do, there's loads of space in which to avoid one another.

Going to the shop,however, is a different matter.
Yesterday, I spent an hour and a quarter queuing to get into Sainsburys. Ten feet (units of Brexit) from the next person and once inside, I adhered to their rules.

Am I being responsible?
Of course I am.

If I'm in open countryside and there's no-one else there, I can't possibly catch anything; neither can i pass it on..
If I'm in a shop or a more crowded environment, I'll be bound by and apply the guidelines.

If anyone chooses to blindly follow these guidelines, then by all means do so but with the application of just a little common sense you might not need to be nearly as constrained as you think.

I am, incidentally, within the "very at risk" category.

In the early days of shutdown, when Parliament was sitting, the newsreel footage showed the front-benchers in a huddle both in the House of Commons and elsewhere. They couldn't possibly have been closer together!

Could people be forgiven for thinking that social distancing, like Austerity of a decade ago, was only for us peasantry?

Yep way to far.

Wifes just started symtoms of her monthly, Migraine, sickness etc.

Boss has just told her she must self isolate for seven as it could be symptoms of corona, worse I have to self isolate for 14 days due to this.

Really angry, we both work in health care and people are dying right now.

I spoke to 111 tonight, I should have been working a 12 hour shift, they basically backed up my thoughts, the only symptoms you should be looking out for is a cough and or high temperature.

To late to sort it all out now, I have a bottle of rum with my name on it, I`m going to have a good drink now and sort all this crap out tommorow.

One of my sisters-in-law told my wife that a friend of hers had been issued a FPN by the police after emerging from a local shop with a bottle of wine - and nothing else. Non-essential journey.

No sympathy from this quarter.

Exactly you could say that she was being responsible by visiting the shop during her allowed exercise time and the initial item she intended to buy wasn't in stock but she still decided to buy the wine.
If that's not the case then maybe all non-essential goods need removing from the shop, starting with cigarettes, tobacco and vapours. Also while we are on this subject, stop all non-essential online purchases such as camera gear.

That was my first thought and it would work if she was on foot.

Hard to convince anyone that you're excercising if you're in the car though . . .
