    There are so many potential issues. Kids coughing and sneezing for one. Going down slides, running and bumping into other kids etc.

    I thought he said essential travel for work, that can't be undertaken at home. (or something similar)

    So are the Germans accepting that?

    I wonder what the 80 year old couple opposite me who were visited by their offspring and grandkids yesterday and were left with the grandkids to look after for the week will do now.

    We you've got a real world argument against libertarianism then haven't you. Choose life (minus liberartarianism) or death.

    There is of course a third way in this case (testing) but what if there wasn't?

    Not if it saves thousands of lives. This is a temporary catastrophic crisis. House arrest makes it sound like a punishment, it’s not.

    And there it is. The lightbulb moment. Some Brits think this is a punishment. The Spanish think it’s a necessity!

    Playgrounds will be closed. He means parks such as Heston Park where you can go for a walk, large outdoor spaces.

    For the record I think these will be rammed and eventually we’ll all be under house arrest.

    Maybe by the weekend, I think he’s gradually implementing Italian/Spanish measures

    The American system of government is basically unchanged in over 200 years. It’s unwieldy and going to be horribly exposed, I fear.
