    No 5pm press conference today. Boz is on a Corba meeting.
    Guess they might be about to order a total lockdown later this evening. Due to tosspots ignoring the advice!

    Matt Hancock is currently in the House of Commons explaining the Coronavirus bill.

    It looks like the KCOM on a Saturday afternoon. Most of the ones that are there are sat on their phones. Hopefully most of the MPs are at home following advice. Shame that this crucial discussion can't be better attended.

    The mega rich, same as those who identify as ''celebrities'' can keep their own counsel - who wants to know what these people think?

    Blimey, I once walked along that esplanade about this time of year and it was like Benidorm in July.
    Eerie.

    Hopefully people given one last chance...

    I’ll go stair crazy if I can't go out following social distance guidance which I have because of other #####s

    I’m 'amazed' at the amount of normally sensible people who just haven't got the severity of this....

    To me the point of last chance has passed.

    Clear and unarguable measures need to be announced and rigidly policed.

    There's some interesting reading in that.
    Bill Gates has for a long time been a good egg.
    Elon Musk laid off a load of his staff and kept his factory open despite being told all none essential workers should stay home.
    Mark Zukerberg has donated a load of face masks, the ones he bought and didn't use in the California wild fires. The grant fund seems to be there to assist companies to use his own social media platforms.

    There are a number of less wealthy and less well known who have given to the cause.

    Aye. When I read my departments sick list email the start of last week you just thought to yourself called it. The grafters are battle hardened to carrying them anyway.

    You just hope there will be enough grafters left standing to maintain a service.
