Well... after 66 days in ICU my sister's fella who was described as being as near to death as can be without dying.... has made it. He's home. Half the fella he was.... and the virus has ravaged his l

Well my sister's fella is making very small steps in the right direction. From being described as as near to death without being dead, he's now sat up, off dialysis and yesterday was breathing on

Jeff Bezos will become the wealthiest bloke ever now 

He already is, even after his wife took half. Maybe we'll be more minded to extract some actual tax from him now.

Not the most reliable source.... I accept that

The police have still not had a single report according to what I can see. There was a request put out earlier that I now can’t find in the pile of stuff I’ve had today. “My mate’s mate got attacked, can I have some money for that story?”

Does it include parliament 

Come on, only essential businesses and services are remaining open....

Saw a report earlier that they were going to bring the start of their East recess forward once the emergency legislation had been passed.

Car booked in for MOT Thursday so that's gone, I shall just tax it and carry on. I find it strange that according to some expert on TV going out for a drive is considered a no no, your self isolating and it was my plan to escape cabin fever over the forthcoming weeks that and taking the dog upto the moors where it's easy to avoid people.

Mental illness here I come (again)??

Surely if you stay in your car then you are still isolated.

John Ashworth (a reasonable Labour MP thus excluded from ever being its leader) is raising the question about whether the curfew applies to the construction industry. Unless I hear anything different, I'm going to Barnsley tomorrow.

Quick query, not seen anything commenting on this... 

What if you're currently away from home? I've not seen anything to suggest hotels, guest houses, etc. have to shut. I know some are however, but is it to be enforced? 

Are people supposed to head home immediately? 

Please view my photos.

Either way parts of the supply chain will probably dry up fairly soon

I think (only think) that driving is safe. But, it is hard to trust that people are really going to stay in the car and not meet up with people. The rules have to be easy to police too.

Last week, I drove to forests and emjoyed splendid isolation. But, were I stopped on the road, coudl they believe my claim? Safer to make m ehave to justify why I was out at all.

Here's the specific guidance.

Including:

"hotels, hostels, bed and breakfasts, campsites, caravan parks, and boarding houses for commercial/leisure use (excluding permanent residents and key workers)."

So I guess folk will be turfed out in the morning whether they have anywhere to go or not.

Cheers. Been looking for something like that, but didn't see it on BBC or any other news site I looked at.
