    Watching Westminster Live on Sky, saying schools set to close Friday, might not reopen until after summer holidays, they’re not talking like a lock down is about to start?

    Won't be a lockdown, that's a last resort, we aren't there yet,and they will give things chance to stabilise before they go there.

    Just trying to pull things to bits as usual
    Government have said they will protect private renters form eviction
    What does this mean
    Does it mean that private renters will be protected from eviction but unpaid rent will be accumulated as a unpaid debt
    As usual the devil is in the detail clarification needs to be made
    Will come back when I want to pick holes in something else

    Devil is in the detail, for example people on Benefits should still have to pay there rents, as they don't pay it now, the benefits do, people should have to show how they lost income before it gets paid for them.

    Well if you're self employed,and had to close or stop your work, you can show you have no work.

    China has supposedly got an outbreak of Bird Flu now.... Hate trump or not, you've got to smile how he keeps calling it the Chinese Flu knowing it upsets them

    Checked this out and it appears it’s been found in Germany
    What is it with the fu-king Chinese if they want to control their population I could give them some more efficient methods

    May as well lock down. Not sure what I am supposed to do with my kid on Monday as both me and the wife have full time jobs. I could take it as unpaid leave but Bill's will still be waiting. I'm in N.Yorkshire, Skipton, and the virus hasn't reached us in the sticks yet (that we know of). Schools could easily carry on as the boys school still has full volume of staff.

    I will probably have to try and work nights or something and try and home school the boy through the day. Sleeping will have to wait until the weekends :emoticon-0101-sadsm! At least I won't miss any football! That's my best case scenario. This sucks ass!

    Hopefully just for a few weeks.

    Are you in any kind of job in which you could claim it is part of the supply chain? If so those families kids can still attend school if I heard it right

    I'm sure you all want to know how we are doing in Oz. We have now got about 500 cases, mainly from people flying in with it, and six people have died. Tom Hanks and his wife have recovered from it on the Gold Coast. We have effectively closed the borders and anybody arriving has to go into 14 days self isolation but our schools are still open. Our barbies are coming under a bit of pressure as outdoor gatherings are limited to 500 and if you want to take it inside to get away from the mozzies then 400 of your mates have to go home. Local pub still open and toilet rolls still available at the IGA.

    By the way the fires are out and we've had quite a bit of rain so the dams and rivers are getting full again. So apart from the obvious, no worries.

    According to the Minister for Health in Queensland and I quote

    "if you are going to catch covid-19, there is no better place in the world than Queensland to do it"

    See how competitive we are!!!!

    But how are you Eric...I mean are you strong enough mentally to handle the rigours of forum life ?

    Just take it steady at first as we don't want you to overdo things and suffer a relapse.

    Here's some cake by the way :emoticon-0166-cake::emoticon-0166-cake::emoticon-0166-cake::emoticon-0166-cake::emoticon-0166-cake:

    No. I'm in manufacturing so hopefully factories remain open like in other countries. I'm lucky so far that my job looks ok for a few weeks.

    Thanks for asking Jammy, not a lot of people take the time to really ask how somebody is and out of that small percentage of people about 99% don't actually want to listen the answer.

    Thanks for the cake, my real one was a Black Forest gâteau, but I guess you aren't allowed those anymore

    Hopefully it doesn't start spreading from person to person. That would indicate that it doesn't like the warm weather too much.
