    I think it is vague because the Police do not have the powers of arrest or resources to actively enforce it.

    I don't like Boris either but at least his announcement makes it clearer to the idiots who are flaunting the need to social distance that they need to act responsibly.

    Surely it is down to each and every one of us to enforce this in a practical manner to protect each other isn't it?

    It is, but people didn't do that this weekend. I can see it only getting stricter. I am very lucky, the company I work for has managed to get 2,000 staff working from home within a week. There will be a lot of spare office space in the world when this is done.

    Does anyone know if the Post Office will be running? I imagine their will be delays but am I still able to post things?

    Everything seems so unclear and I just want to do it right!

    It's vague because they're still desperate to prop up the false God of the Economy.

    Nonessential construction sites still running.

    It beggars belief.

    Don't tase me bro

    I found a link saying post offices and banks could open as providing a vital Service, but things could change. Said if a franchisee, it's up to them if they consider if it's safe to do So or not.Banks if
    it's an in-store branch to check if open first.

    Certainly no sticking to the new rules going on down the alleyway by us. Sitting on the patio listening to a couple/ few (?) Families just meeting up for a good chin- wag!

    Wish my neighbour wouldn't keep coming to speak right by the fence. Nice having a chat, but having to move across my patio out of the sun to distance myself ( especially as same one who has been out and about everywhere and not happy she now has to stay at home on her weeks holiday ).

    Getting rather angry today observing so many people flouting these new measures , and that's just what I can see and hear from my house. People not family walking along together in groups, several people at a time stopping for a chat in close proximity . People visiting people in cars, some I know damn well are from other towns, as well as not even family . Pretty sure Boris said even family aren't supposed to be visiting each other if they don't live in the same house.

    Not having ham salad as planned for tea afterall....went to put the ham on the plate... it's bacon.:lol: Oh well....making do with chicken burger salad it is then .

    Can see me concocting some rather strange meals over the next few weeks , using what I have in..

    Interesting, both Post Offices and newsagents are allowed to stay open.
