    He's gone as far as he's willing to go. On the face of it the measures sound harsh and what many were calling for, but he still left enough ambiguity to allow people to still leave the house who shouldn't, and for businesses to remain open which should really be closed.

    Unless he defines who can go to work. And the exercise bit is hilarious I mean walking is exercise so basically you can wander out at will for as long as you want.

    To put this into context, these are the most authoritarian measures ever implemented by a UK government.

    I know it will save lives and it’s needed but I feel very uneasy about it.

    So is it the travel that has to be essential and not the work? So if u have a non essential job u dont go in?

    I'm in telecommunications for a small private company which (I think) classes me as a key worker but that's quite vague too.

    Don't be daft
    Firms that say that kind of thing should be named and shamed.
    Also the owner should be blacklisted from NHS.
    If he or she gets it suffer in silence alone.
    Hopefully up a fucking tree

    One of the things listed as being closed are hotels. How does that leave that offer from Neville for NHS Staff to stay in his then?

    Fill your water bottle with Carling and attach your phone to your arm and blast a few tunes.

    I hope these millions of kits BJ refers to are these rapid testing kits. Spain are distributing to health workers are care homes. That will make a massive difference. eing able to instantly take out of circulation people who have the virus would be massive.

    I think the Americans have these too, and if they can get them rolled out that will stop the infection in its tracks. It will mean we have a rapid way of ending he chains of infection. Presumably anyone who gets it goes to their bedroom and stays there out of society and comes back when they are well, and meanwhile all their contacts get quickly checked.
