P&O Cruisers - What are things like where YOU are?


Recommended Posts

Stable doors closed after the horse has bolted comes to mind after listening to Matt Hancock.

The fact that Londoners were allowed to rush out of London and head around the rest of the country means that the mutant virus is now happily incubating everywhere so that we can guarantee a huge spike of the virus with the accompanying deaths throughout the country.

Yep... 

I have a carpet fitter currently working in an empty house/plot in Andover, currently tier 2, and the family from 3 different houses in London have turned up with no respect for his space, trying to get up stairs while he is working on them etc, no masks and closing all the windows and doors because they are cold... 

Some people will do what they like regardless...

Short of shooting these people Andy, what extra action could the govt do that they are not doing?

I think if I was him I would have walked out with the job half finished. They deserve no better.

Looks like you Got that wrong. Just a few sensible extra precautions to deal with the mutants.

 

Do you mean the virus, or the people who still thinks it ok to hold raves in tier 4?😊

Also bill them for the work as they are preventing him working in a safe environment.

Great to see the local communities helping out the stranded lorry drivers at Dover, with special mention to the Sikh charity who drove from Coventry (with police escort) to distribute meals.

But, and for once I am not trying to make a political point, surely the national and local authorities should have been involved in this sort of situation.

The great British community spirit is alive and well, but if Sikhs from Coventry can provide meals to Dover, why couldn't the government?

Not blaming the Government John, just highlighting that the restrictions are not working, there will always be people who do what they like. 

Being honest, we shouldn't be allowed to work in people's houses when family can't visit, but it's allowed.

Well, Christmas has come early!  We are still  only in Tier 3, and looks like there will be a Brexit deal !

Where did I put the sherry?

Ah, but we're next door and now in tier 4.😈

 

Mrs Wowzz used it for the trifle.

Andy.

I feel sorry for your workers.

These selfish people just don't get it.

Today I woke up listening to the news on the radio (I rarely do it), however, this is interesting - I heard so many interesting news that I believed in. I think the radio is one of those things that we are missing out on today. There are things you wont hear anywhere else

I told him walk off but he was nearly done by the time he told me.

Its easy to say such a thing these days than actually do it. So many people have lost their jobs. I doubt that anyone will leave a job (especially a low paid one) at this very moment. its too risky

You say Londoners. Bad Londoners. A good number were people from other parts of the country, who work and study in London and the south east and were going home for Christmas. Any numbers to show they were Londoners?.

I am glad that Londoners manage to stay at home and their government is taking care of them. If they manage to overcome these pandemic days they will be in a much safer situation than the rest of the population of the world. Really hope they make it

Idea of the day.

Well I reckon rather than fines or physical violence their mobile phones should be seized and smashed into small pieces in front of them , after removing the SIM of course, that might make them take notice 😈

I imagine Josie meant people who live, work and study in London, unless living in London, but not being born there, makes you immune to the virus. 

 

There are some excellent self-help books available for those who find they take everything literally.

There is enough bad news without folk making divisive quips to try and get a cheap laugh, don't you think?.

Agreed, and why wasnt the testing  ready and waiting for the agreement.

They should have started immediately after midnight and had full ferries and shuttles running immediately.
