    There is definitely some confusion in the speech ( as per usual)

    did he mean travel to essential work is allowed ; or

    does he mean if it’s essential that you have to travel to work and can’t do it from home , then that is ok.

    Was thinking the same can see the store's closing I guess the motorist centres and garages might be class as essential so front line workers can get to work....still very confusing

    Exactly. For instance there is an office below mine. With about 60 people in. They aren’t essential workers, but have to use the computers they have in the office.

    If the boss wants them to go in - do they have go in??

    I might be coming across as thick here, but I bet lots of people are thinking the same

    Nope, that's the list for essential workers - the people entitled to use schools. It doesn't include construction or manufacturing, and the Financial Times are reporting that people in those industries are still free to make journeys to work.

    It's a FUDGE. Forgive me if I am suspicious that he is being deliberately, obtusely vague. I hope the papers and so forth get on them about this.

    The same problem seems to plague eligibility for a raft of the financial / economic support measures. It all sounds great but there are many loopholes and people not seemingly protected. (BTW Has anyone seen a summary of the stuff that passed to protect people renting? Genuinely interested)

    He could close most of them with much clearer public declarations, but I suspect he's finding it hard to come to terms with the actual idea of taking control of so much.

    Yep. Time for people to cop the fuck on and stop treating it like a holiday. If everybody does what they are told then weve a great chance of over coming this. People acting like spoiled brats thinking they can do what they want carry on doing what they are doing then we dont stand a chance.

    Obviously in a speech you can't go into every possible criteria. More specific details will follow.

    He told everyone earlier today for people who live here need to fly home whilst they can
    The only way to weed people out is testing,they have home testing coming through but testing is one of the ways we have gone wrong from the start
