We should be in lockdown now

Post by Steve30000 »

According to the stats, we're on the same course as Italy, but seem to be just sitting here letting it happen.

What would a lockdown be like?
Is this where you can't go out at all and rely on delivery drivers?
I predict that there will be riots and looting soon - bookmark this.
This is the calm before the storm imho.

Only essential workers can go to work.
You would need a certificate to leave the home.

If this happens then there should be a shoot to kill policy because last time this happened in London we saw police with guns running away from the looters.
I don't think we can afford to allow the rioters or looters to take over so at the first sign of anything like this, it should be nipped in the bud.
We need order out of chaos not the other way around.
Hopefully we will see communities pull together without any nasties.


What was that you said again?

Yes and they were under attack.
I can never understand why armed officers have to think twice about shooting.
I am still predicting a riot and looting.

If this happens tonight, I fully expect people to panic.

After tonight's daily government update we are not quite on lockdown but very close to it.
We are only allowed out once a day for exercise and no more that 2 people can't gather at once.
All shops which don't deal in food or essentials must close :o
We are nearly in total lockdown.
It's gradually got to this on a daily basis.

It's an unreal situation we find ourselves in.

Can't be 2m within anyone else.... Apart from at work, where its not possible.

Stay at home... Unless you need to go to work, go to the shop, go for a walk...

What a farce, it'll be a normal day for most.

Yet we're supposed to stay at home to slow this down..
