    We needed the sledgehammer. And got an elastic band. Trains transporting this thing between each and every city; planes still coming in and out of the UK I cycled past Tesco this evening and every till was open so people standing cms apart. Unfuckingbelievable that this government can't put out laws, not recommendations. I did several home visits today checking on some of our most vulnerable pupils. I knew what I'd see; but something nagged in my head that maybe, just this once, the idiot swathes would heed the advice. Not a chance. Mingling, drinking, smoking weed, all a big fucking laugh. And here comes our PM, "you must only shop if essential" but we'll not mandate stores to make sure you stay apart so making the whole thing utterly futile. This was such a great opportunity. And he blew it. Idiots need telling.

    In terms of work places that is obviously bollocks. If he is taking about a high st then possibly.

    Because the gov are treating us like grownups. the message is clear. the implementation, thats left up to the public. if people want to look for getouts in wording analysis, they will. But it is pretty clear. Put the imnediste health of the nation first. You cant force that, at some point the penny just has to drop.

    Ive never said it’s punishment, I do think it’s a necessity.

    I’m just saying why a PM of the UK doesn’t want to do it.

    I'd imagine so. Keep your hazards on, to be on the safe side.
