Well Iíve been out on my motorbike today in the Peak District and I cannot believe what I have seen. I purposely intended to ride a loop without stops other than one garage for some juice. Itís was packed out everywhere

Cars all over, people all over in the popular areas and I saw three different cop cars moving people on. One was a big lay by that has a cafe, that was serving!, packed out with bikers and tourists stood in groups talking away.

Do people watch the news. Like the scientists said the other day, itís too early to lift this lockdown, I can see why, expect another spike!

I think that the ONS recently stated that around 7 % of the uk population have had it , although nearly everyone thinks that they have had it !

So, given the fact that loads of people are convinced (rightly or wrongly, who knows?) they've already had coronavirus, plenty of people can't afford to lose work, and many others don't give a toss because they think it's all been exaggerated ..

Upon receiving a phone call stating 'You were stood next to someone in a queue the other day who's tested positive, please stay at home for 14 days' .. what percentage of the population do you think would do as requested?

ďno person may leave the place where they are living without reasonable excuseĒ

No specific rule about driving but to go ďanywhereĒ other than the grounds of that residence would require leaving the house. Just move on, youíre wrong.

Good for you tinhead



Although some of your music choices should maybe on the criminal list....

It's impossible and unfair to tar all police with the same brush. There is a clear issue with some of the systematic racism in the organisation of course - plenty of young black men who like you are law abiding but still find themselves in the cells or worse... As you say. Maybe a different thread?

Back to corona then?

My sis is now back at work and they've lost just less than half of the residents on each of the 3 floors. Some staff still off self isolating. Not sure if this us typical across the country (Cumbria has some of the highest figures) but the numbers are shocking in what has been a very short period. Not that we are necessarily seeing the accurate numbers of course.

Anyway this is a Corona virus thread not a political one.
At least one person agrees with me.

As regards the police in all my years I've never had a problem with them that's because I don't break the law (insert halo smiley)
Only time I've had dealings with the police is when I've been a victim and they've always been polite, considerate and well meaning. Oops that wasn't about Corona

Absolutely

But it's Boris and he - and his friends - don't have to live by the same set of moral / legal codes as the rest of us do they?

Trump's response has been typically well thought out. The President of the US censored by Twitter for using language that contravenes their rules...

I have found through life that people who bang on about racism and accuse others of being racist are generally quite racist themselves.

Anyway this is a Corona virus thread not a political one.

The fact BJs racist comments were swept under the carpet as part of his character of being a buffoon is even more dangerous. Everyone knows heís racist but happy to accept it?? Sadly racism is still ingrained in people in the country too. It wasnít long ago at all that in this country being anything but English meant a threat to life.... tbh thereís a shocking amount of very real and sincere racism still in this country through all generations.

Well...

Let's start with the current cabinet muppets - Johnson, Gove, Raab, Hancock, Williamson, Patel, Sharma plus Cummings of course - maybe 3 tigers could take care of them.

We'll ensure they are checked for any harmful diseases first of course. Wouldn't want the tigers getting ill off a bad meal would we?

And Spanker - You're right about the Racist language used by those you detail - and the way it's lapped up and regurgitated is as much a part of the problem. As I've said before - Covid 19 doesn't discriminate, but we have plenty of politicians who've got that covered already...

Trust me, I am no cheerleader of the Police. However I know full well that for every copper that hits you with a truncheon at Cardiff away (true story), there are many others who just want to do their bit and go back to their families like they want you to. Most join the old bill for the career and do what they are told. Some join for a fluffy idea of world peace then get told they'll be going down to Hastings to stop Karen sitting on a beach towel.

I've been fined twice by them. One said "I don't mean to be a c***, but the council grassed you up via CCTV" as I had one wheel on a zig zag line. The other was on Christmas Eve, stopping commercial vehicles going through a royal park. £60 fine because I was driving a white van with some letting on the side. It's all about revenue generation to a lot of councils.

Coppers are just pawns doing their dirty work. Meanwhile, others go to work and find another 15 year old kid dead in the gutter with stab wounds without a copper in sight. Good old London.

Anyway, back to covid....

Donít think Iíve ever met a police officer that remembers itís innocent until proven guilty Proper jacked up on power and seemingly above the law because their peers donít tell the truth. But Because they donít want you to know that.

I think society in the US is a good 60 years behind Europe. It wasn't that long ago they were hanging black people from trees.

I have a theory. In the UK we always had movements and communities to attach ourselves to, totally understandable considering we are social creatures. We had the mods, rockers, teddy boys, casuals, ravers

....and now the social justice mob. The latter has been spawned from an online base where you now don't even have to meet in the same venue to be a part of it, and with the correct marketing, it can make total sense to a generation who have nothing to assign themselves to. They are told their future is merely high house prices, inequality, fear and danger....

Yet we live in the most safest, prosperous and technological world EVER.

The social justice mob are merely individuals. Black, White, Gay, Straight, Baristas, Nurses....all people who just want to be a part of something because in their eyes, they have nothing, and the media tells them they will continue to have nothing. Hence why you see rich little white kids destroying black communities alongside those black communities who also believe the Police are just out to kill people.
