The Caravan Club has just closed all of its sites. Some friends of mine were on one of them and have been unceremoniously thrown off!! It is so tempting to think that we can self-isolate in our motorhomes, completely missing the point that we are travelling and therefore adding to the risks for everyone.

I am completely in agreement with Scotland and The Lake District saying "Go away, we don't want you at the moment".

We pussy foot around too much in this country.

I've just heard from a friend that a couple who were holidaying in one of the Canary Islands (I forget which one) had been holed up in their hotel all day and went out for a stroll in the evening. They'd got no more than about 600 yards when stopped by a policeman, asked where they were going and politely told to go back to their hotel.

As far as I'm aware, the Europeans have not resorted to panic buying either.

What is it about the Brits? Are we naturally rebellious or just plain ignorant?

Calmac have just announced that only locals will be able to travel to and from the islands when they need to for essential supplies and business.  Anyone on the island can leave but no outsiders will be allowed over.

In answer to your question Jill, I think it's a bit of both.  Born I suspect from the idea of imperial superiority taught to so many generations for over 100 years.  The assumption that we are better than everyone, that no one can tell us what to do that we will be fine and so on.

I think there's also a fierce streak of independence* in there as well.

I'm in the danger age and health category and, having had a refusal from my chemist to deliver my medication, which I need this next week, I intend to catch a bus and go and pick it up myself. This, despite a note from my (much younger) neighbours offering any help I need, plus one of those leaflets through the door from another near neighbour ticking the shopping box. Both notes helped restore my faith in my fellow humans which has been on a steep downward slope since all this started.

I know I should take them up on their offers but I am not ill so why should I put them at risk rather than myself? They both have children. It doesn't feel right.

I know up to the day before yesterday, the Camping and Caravanning Club where open with sanitary blocks closed, but that could have changed now. We have two breaks booked one of them for Easter. Needless to say, we won't be going anywhere in the caravan anytime soon. I'm surprised that it took so long for them to respond
given that travel is advised only where absolutely necessary, why risk further spread if the virus around the UK  ??? Yes we are disappointed but so are millions of others whose lives have been disrupted due to the current crisis.
We will share a bottle of wine in our caravan taking in the view of our garden and imagine that we are somewhere else...for now  ;D

Just accept their help. Risking being ill doesn't help you, them, the health workers or anyone else.

So much for social distancing.....

Have you seen the pictures of the crowds that have flocked to Bournemouth, Brighton, Skegness and probably many, many more.............

From today's IOM Government Press Conference (16:00 Sunday 22nd):

All schools to close from end of school day tomorrow, Monday.
All pubs and clubs to close from midnight tonight.
Extended to all cafes and restaurants - but takeaway service allowed.
Island borders closed to non-residents.

Chief Minister makes plea to Manx people to change behaviour and says this “is no longer optional”.
He says to all - ”Do not go to friends for dinner”, “do not go to social gatherings”.
