Agreed, but cash is king and there is no cash with out of date stock.

I don't know if it's related but for 3 days last week no station in my town (boston) have any diesel. Was quite worrying as I run two vans for work and both use nearly a full tank a week.

Farmers are panic buying tyres for tractors , was getting a new van tyre today and the place had sold 120 tractor tyres and it was only 11am.

Well that’s that!!

So what exactly is lockdown? Will that mean the construction industry is closed as the wholesalers and suppliers will be closed?

Partial blame to the people who thought this was nothing. Those who let their kids roam around like a holiday and those who thought going to the beach where massive gatherings would happen.

They don't see the effects this has untill one day one of their relatives gets it and doesnt make it.

Well we can see what situation it's like in 3 weeks time. Hopefully an improvement but I see this lasting more than that for another month till end of May start of June.

Unless you're a key worker you're gonna be hit hard and bored sadly.

Even yesterday when I went out for a stroll there were a few dog walkers but nothing major, easy to keep distant from others....but got to a play area where there were swings and slides and whatnot and there were about 20 kids all playing and running around, could hardly believe what I was seeing. Their mums all probably read on Facebook that kids were immune, and when we do finally get a vaccine they won't give it to their kids because they'll read on Facebook that it gives kids autism.

The McDonalds panic buying shut down the industrial estate I work on with the queue for the drive through, they even gridlocked the fire station exit. Then when the ones trying to get in prevented the ones with food getting out, rather than eat it in their cars, they packed onto all the outside benches together, the other one the other side of town had to have the Police out to move them on due to the traffic gridlock.

I also had to check it wasn’t a bank holiday today, the amount of caravans on the road.

At least in these troubling times we know we can still always get our driveways paved

Finally, a journalist speaking a bit of sense.

Forget sh!t paper.

Prepare for increased taxation to help 'Get Britain back on it's feet' when all this blows over, which it will.

"As of 19 March 2020, COVID-19 is no longer considered to be a high consequence infectious diseases (HCID) in the UK."

"They have determined that several features have now changed; in particular, more information is available about mortality rates (low overall)"

"The Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP) is also of the opinion that COVID-19 should no longer be classified as an HCID."

The amount he would of had to throw at the country its obvious a big tax rise is happening, but it will only be for people earning under £150000 a year as there will be tax cuts for the rich
