    That’s fine as long as they don’t expect me to be financially ruined as a result of it.
    We stay in to protect them and it seems they don’t care, they know best.
    My mother in law is the worst example, she doesn’t give two hoots, not that I would ever cross the mother in law and tell her obviously.....

    Which is the vaccine failing to prevent a death not causing a death.
    One is a relatively minor event, the other is a catastrophic incident

    It's ok, the new slogan is for everyone to stay alert because the original "Stay Home" one apparently worked too well and we mostly all stayed home.



    I'm not sure what I'm meant to "Stay Alert" to though? Has the virus manifested as a 1950s rogue biker gang?

    Also note that the colour has changed to green. Guess the expectation is to push everyone back out and see what happens.

    In the long run more lives have and will be cut short by pollution than by coronavirus. Right now priority should be opening roads and parks to get people cycling, and getting other people who need to use public transport back to work slowly to ensure public transport systems are not overwhelmed.

    If they are talking about running on 20% capacity, all transport systems will be overwhelmed...full stop.

    Control the virus.

    Are we to wrap it in chains. Make it sit on the naughty step. Tell it to stop bring a bad virus.

    I hope this is the right place to share this.
    Also, does anyone know what rollercoaster BBC news has put at the top of the article?

    Looks like one of the Blue Fire clones, without going through them all on rcdb to find one with the right colour scheme I'm not sure which.

    Looks like China are continuing to take advantage of the virus situation by now trying to control international waters in the disputed South China sea. The US has just sent 3 war ships to the region in response.

    Funny isn't it....... There have a relatively small outbreak considering their population, managed to completely eradicate it, meanwhile the rest of the world suffers..... Almost sounds like it was done on purpose doesn't it. .... disable other countries while you build up your economy and military. We all knew bioweapons were next on the list of warfare.... This all sounds a bit too convieninenient to me.

    Your confusion would be because you're looking at random things on the internet, which may or may not be true, rather than waiting until an official announcement this evening :)

    I think "Stay at home as much as possible" is a very clear indicator that
    the lockdown is not over and that you shouldn't be going out to see friends.

    The reason they’ve changed the slogan is because as part of easing lockdown, they want people to make use of their new freedoms in order to kickstart the economy.

    but neither does it say you cant do those things.

    its all going to end badly :rolleyes:

    limit contact, totally.. to a few hours , 30 mins ?

    how much is "as much" thats a bit arbitrary and can mean anything depending on your thinking

    Surely those questions will be answered later today. Wait and find out.
