    My 7A will just need some ITBs..... And some straight through sidepipes, with four exits of course.

      If you aren't socially distancing, and washing your hands then SHAME ON YOU.

      If you are continuing going to work while feeling ill, then SHAME ON YOU. Go home, rest up, get better.
      S

      if you don't follow the government advice, then you are needlessly condemning people, especially older people, to death.

      Get over yourselves and start acting like a responsible citizen.

      Rant over, but I do not regret it.
      This x 100.

      My neighbours had their mum and dad plus gran over for Mothers day today... FFS.

      When are people going to understand what social distancing actually means?

      Probably when it is too late and Dr's in the UK have to decide who to save and who to leave to die on a hospital trolley???

      Stay safe everyone.


      On a lighter note I cleansed and waxed my S2 for the first time this year. I will post up some pics tomorrow....

        One of the big challenges with all of this from a psychological perspective is that what ever is done now is 2 weeks behind when it impacts. Keep safe everyone. Hopefully there will be help for self employed coming as I feel for everyone in this situation that is making it challenging for some to stick to the isolation needed.

          UK now in lockdown well done Boris all we need to do is for everyone to obey so we can get rid of the deadly virus. I keep saying it all the time but really stay safe everyone. **** just got real for me as my sister has symptoms and is a single parent with a 3yr old lad, got some groceries for her and had to pass them through the downstairs window she didn't look good so keeping a close eye on her.

            Sorry to hear that Anthony, that must be very difficult as well as the little one to look after. All fingers crossed for them!!

            Meanwhile down south, the animals are almost on the verge of anarchy. After Boris gave his address to the nation at 8.30 pm a local lass posted on that local village group i'm on and said at least 50 people mostly young piled into the fairly local Tesco mini store around 10 and cleared the shelves and punched one of the assistants in the face. Same thing happened up north ish (posted on fb Coupe / Cabriolet troupe)

            Makes my blood boil, It's at times like these with animals behaving like animals i wish this chap would make an appearence!

              Oh and in Hitchin Hertfordshire, between Luton and Cambridge 3 young punks, 2 local white trash one an illegal black immigrant, crack coccain dealers went up to an old couple walking along the street and coughed right into their faces. Not reported on the bbc but the video is doing the rounds. Tommy Robinson witnessed it remonstrated with them and got told to calm down by the old bill when they eventually turned up. You could't make this stuff up!

                Unfortunately as a stiuation like this can bring out the best in people,the flip side is it brings out the worst in others
                Everyone i've spoke to (on the phone) welcomes the lockdown,as do i,time to put an end to this virus...
                As mentioned above,hopefully there will be some kind of help for the self employed soon as not leaving the house to go to work means no money coming in whatsover,although i'm self employed myself,i'm in the fortunate position to be living at home,and also working here doing some alteration all be it at a vastly reduced rate.
                I feel for those who effectively live hand to mouth where income is concerned ,that being said you can't put a price on your own,your loved ones or anyone elses health/life.
                I wish everyone all the best,stay safe!
                It's a love/hate relationship with the S2,i love it,it hates me

                    It will be surely tough for the economy limiting the moves of the people for 3 months.

                      there will be a lot of small businesses going bankrupt if they don't get help.

                            I despair but if we all do our bit and minimise social contact, the sooner it will be over and we can get on with meeting other petrol fuelled friends
                            well that comment has quickly become premature and naive.

                              The facts I stand by - they are facts.

                              The despair and encouragement for everyone to do their bit I stand by - we need to.

                              The media worry comment I also standby - unless they can see 2 weeks into the future, they weren't reporting, they were predicting or guessing on a virus even the scientists are still learning about.

                                Indeed.

                                We know the flu is deadly, to the extent that circa 14m people receive a vaccine against it in the UK each year, with the government and workplaces offering the vaccine for free to protect people at a massive cost. Yet still thousands die.

                                So to downplay the severity of a similar virus, that has a higher mortality rate, is 4 times more contagious than flu and has no current vaccine or cure.... well, it's a little silly.

                                Tell the 100-200k people in the US that are predicted to die, by experts not the media, that 'Corona worry is a media construct'.

                                Behave, pipe down, stay at home if you can.
