    in june, we were told that it was our "patriotic duty" to get out to pubs and bars

    as we started tp drift back into offices and places of work, we were encouraged to nip in and buy a coffee on the way to help out the coffee shops and small retailers

    there was even an "eat out to help out" scheme started, inviting the public to visit restaurants on certain week days and enjoy meals at a reduced price, with the government picking up the excess

    "stay home" became "stay alert"



    2 nights back, we sat through a tv broadcast by boris johnson effectively saying the virus was picking up pace again because we hadn't done enough to keep ourselves away from other people and that we all needed to be sensible and think how we could all help contribute to controlling the virus



    there are no easy answers, and businesses do need the patronage to survive, but i'm buggered if i'm going to be told "we're doing what we can for you, but you lot just aren't helping us out here"
    "i know enough to know what's instantly forgettable"

    I can't take credit for this but a brilliant comment made after Boris's last broadcast;

    "I would feel more confident if it was a press conference by the Corona virus explaining how it intends to protect us all from this government"
