    I have an open mind but you appear to be somewhat biased in your interpretation of news, which news outlet would you consider unbiased?

    Just looked on the BBC website, can you point out some brainwashing items, because I can't see any

    The more you are exposed to others, the more risk you have of catching it.

    Many people are either furloughed or working from home - drive around London and you will see empty streets at lunch time.

    But some people are not furloughed, and some cannot work from home. These people are at highest risk. Educated, traditional middle class, desk workers, are less likely to catch it than cleaners, drivers, warehouse stackers, pickers, shop workers, factory workers etc.

    It was obviously mine, it had the link referring to my post.
    The reason why it wasn't a quote, is because you used copy instead of quote.
    Now that I've explained how you can quote my post, and you do seem to have mastered the technique at this later stage, you could repeat your deleted post and we can all work out what it was you were trying to say.

    Well said. That sums it up quite well. Why can’t idiots understand it though? I saw on the news tonight some Muslim saying something like "How would you like it if it happened on Christmas Eve"? Well, I’d be a bit disappointed naturally but AS IT'S TO PROTECT ME AND MY LOVED ONES I’d just accept it FFS.

    How dare you! I demand my right to celebrate some beardy bloke on a cloud, to the exclusion of my fellow humans ' wellbeing!

    ("beardy bloke" being illustrative ; I am aware that Muslims put a lot of store in their prophet too (y))

    what bad timing!

    Do the rules prevent tradesmen working in houses? -I don't know where that would fit in, I know plumbers have done emergency work in houses all through the lockdown.

    I suppose you have to decide between what you think the risk is and how you interpret the rules.

    Oldham itself has 40% asian population,outlying posher areas less but these are not seeing a big rise,as more rural.
    Croydon is the 5th worst hit in country with deaths from covid, hardly proving your point.

    I’ve probably only done a dozen emergency jobs since March, but I’m semi retired now and only work for existing clients , not taking on anymore customers, not sure of new rules yet, but if we’re allowed to go on Monday will put mums mind at rest.i

    Covid 19 has its victims all locked in on the radar.
    And lock down or no lock down it will get them eventually.

    Don't tell me, advanced AI controlled computers are sending covid to people via the 5G network?
