England on Virus Lockdown

the police start enforcing draconian new powers

Just a short while ago I received a text from the UK Government saying; ‘New Rules in force now: you must stay at home.  Stay at home.  Protect the NHS.’

And the rules are draconian.  There are police patrols out in all major UK cities breaking up any group of more than two people, and trying to get people to just go home.

There are only 4 reasons I can go outside of the garret:

  • Shopping for basic necessities.
  • Medical needs.
  • Travelling to and from work, but only if I can’t work from home.  (I don’t work anyway.)
  • One form of exercise per day, (say walking the dog or going to the store).

I guess if I walk to the store, pharmacy, or my doctor, then that’s also my one piece of fresh air and exercise for the day.  In any event I must stay out of the garret for as little time as possible, and stay at least 6 feet from anyone else.

A whole lot of non-essential stores are closed, by order of the government, including clothing and electronics stores. Libraries, community centres, leisure centres, hotels, campsites, trailer parks, hostels, and places of worship are also closed, initially for 3 weeks from yesterday.

Not even in wartime has England seen anything like this.

It’s no hardship for me, but for some who can’t visit their families or attend their church this may be very difficult.

Sadly, all we in Great Britain have no choice.

  3. Sadly, this is our world today. Our rules are much less strict, because our POTUS has decided the dollar is more important.

    1. All those who are stupid and selfish will probably get the virus ~ and it does make you feel dreadful, even if you’re not dying.
      Stay safe Kris. All my love to you. 💖💖💖
