I wonder how people dependent on illegal drugs will cope.

They don't need to worry one bit about their supply. The police are busy  It's the fact that their immunity is most probably lower will cause them problems.

They can still get their Meth from the chemist every day too.

I just figured that after 2 days of home schooling, parents were now calling Off Licenses essential..........


(and no, I'm not being serious!!!)

Personally I think garden centres more essential than off licences, maybe itís to reduce the pressure
on supermarkets,

Mike

I agree, garden centres should be allowed to open. My brother wanted to plant his seed potatoes before the end of the month. But now he can't go and buy them. They're probably in the closed shop rotting away, onion and shallot sets as well.

I have just ordered some seed potatoes online.  Admittedly postage adds to the expense but I only ordered them as I was buying something else.

Had an e-mail a few days ago from our local garden centre who are now doing online orders and deliveries locally. No wonder it has so many awards  :)
