I wonder which version my employer is listening to.

I will have to phone them in the morning.

The Government overrides anything of a local authority.

On BBC Newsnight

Absolutely appalled that one UK Retailer is reported as trying to get round our PM's Statement, whilst two Midlands NHS Staff are reported in Intensive Care with Corona Virus and one was transferred to a Specialist Unit.

UK - Only Essential Food or Medicine is 'Essential' and that has restrictions.

At least two weeks to late but better late than not at all.

Been online to shop, no delivery slots, no click and collect slots.

Sainsbury’s impossible to contact to register as being self isolating due to health issues

And now Boris orders total lockdown so even less chance of this pair of 70 plussers getting groceries delivered.

Will have to risk going in person during one of the oldies sessions.

Suey,

Keeping everyone safe is obviously the most important, but these conflicting statements will cause unnecessary confusion for many people.  If I listen to Boris I should go, if I listen to Sadiq I should stay home.  I wonder which version my employer is listening to.

I will have to phone them in the morning.

Surely going on the London Tube is a gathering of more than 2 people.

Registered on three sites, two have no delivery slots available and one making slots for next week available on Wednesday (setting my alarm for that).

Have to get the car MOTd by next week. While I agree with closing cafes and pubs in theory I will seriously miss having somewhere to sit with a drink or snack.

Saw a vehicle marked "Video Surveillance Unit" yesterday in our village.

Sounds like if brothers watching our every move then!

Sadly I've got to go out to food shop as earliest delivery booked is 13th April...
Still local butcher and coop open at 7am so hoping not too many around atthat time!

These measures have come in a bit late but might not have been necessary if advice had been followed but sadly it's the tail wagging the dog and the rest of us suffer because of it.... I know Brits have an independent spirit but surely now is the time to think of everyone hasn't it?

Keep safe everyone and keep communicating.... I've seen my daughter and grandsons every day via FaceTime so there are some positives as their lives are not so frantic and they've time to chat more.

Presumably you do know they weren't sent there by the government  to spy on your village, don't you?

Mike, saying what was seen. Absolutely no idea if related to the PM Statement or not.
