Re: Stay at home

Coronavirus: Exercise out of the home 'could be banned' if people flout rules https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52172035 That sounds like an exercise in blaming the public for government failings. Not at all, it is blaming over-entitled cockwombles for flouting a rule they find personally inconvenient ...

Re: 5G is the cause of Covid19!

One of my relatives keeps sending me conspiracy theories, I refer her to Snopes (urban myth buster) but now she takes no notice and thinks that they are part of the conspiracy. Last time it was ALWAYS switch your mobile off before entering a petrol station in case someone phones you and it goes up ...

Re: Stay at home

Careful how you cycle. We got out our bikes for the first time in 4 years and husband is now in the "not the orthopaedic ward" of the local hospital with a broken hip and arm. One of the bits of "collateral damage" of the epidemic. We would otherwise have been walking sedately i...

Re: Stay at home

It is absolutely fine to go for a bike ride but yeah be careful. Cycling is safe for most people but just like walking it is your judgement call on conditions. There is no government guidance on length of exercise and nothing in the law that sets a limit. So use your best judgement and I am sure ev...

Re: Stay at home

As a final moan, if anything demonstrates how utterly crap society has become, it's a crisis like this. I've seen stories of foodbanks being broken into, foodbank trolleys in Tesco being rifled, folk bulk buying baby food and sticking it on ebay at 20x the price and social media has become a depres...

Re: Stay at home

Hopefully the views on this are beginning to change. Staying at home is not the most important thing . Staying clear of others is more important. Most people should be able to walk from home and avoid people, but for some travelling a short distance in a car will be a better option. I'm not sure if...

Re: Ever been lost and how didyou get on (off?)

I've never been lost, the closest I got was when I climbed Ben Hope on what I thought was going to be a clear day with excellent views. There were excellent views on every other hill in the far north, but Ben Hope stubbornly held on to its cloud cap all day. I took the easiest route up, eventually a...

Re: Applauding our fantastic NHS

The point I was trying to make was that we in the NHS are being shown huge gratitude for “putting our lives at risk” by looking after those with the virus. Yet those in the armed forces do this all the time without the same gratitude. The NHS put their lives at risk by treating us with horrific, co...

Re: Applauding our fantastic NHS

As a nurse working in critical care within the NHS I’m experiencing the sharp end of the crisis. The outpouring of kindness towards us of late has been lovely and I know it’s very much appreciated. I can’t help finding it abit odd, though that we don’t treat those in the armed forces in the same wa...

Re: Applauding our fantastic NHS

The reality is we are in this mess now. The NHS may be underfunded and lacking resources, but bitching about it ain't going to get us out of this. Aye a wee clap and everthing will be OK. I think the point is its how the doctors, nurses etc feel and not you....... I'm sorry, but I'm entitled to my ...
