As there seems to be confusion as to what we can do...

The UK is still under lock down, we have permission to go further for exercise however that does not mean a 2 hour trip to the coast.
We can go to the shops that are open adhering to the social distancing rules.

It is not difficult, is it.

The current situation will be reviewed come first of June.

Given that I have heard some horror stories like 300 and counting bikers congregating - their logic was, if we are that many what can they do - I almost hope the Government will have to lock the country down again....and really big time fine idiots like that.

apparently we can drive where we want, but not stay overnight, or cross into Wales,Scotland or NI
Driving as far as you like

Driving to outdoor open spaces, either alone or with members of your household is allowed, as well as travelling to beaches or beauty spots in England.

Households can also drive any distance in England to destinations such as parks and beaches. But they should not travel to Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland, where people are still being told to avoid any non-essential travel.

Pikey can be used as a derogatory term for anyone of the Irish traveller or gipsy community regardless of age, status or wealth......whereas "Millennial" refers to someone that reached young adulthood in the early 21st century, born between 1981 and 1996.

Morning Peeps,

Given the above, I suppose that you can have a "Millennial with Pikey tendencies" or conversely, a Pikey who is a millennial ( how about him surfacing your drive ?)

Neither of them is a millenial... The mum looks in her 40s, and the daughter is early teens.


If I want to call them millenials I'll call 'em millenials! aaarggh


Pond life may better describe their respective mental abilities (at least that of the mother).

How about Lewis Hamilton trying to cash in on the Captain Tom Moore publicity; Auld Tom raises £40 million for the NHS; Hamilton moved abroad to avoid paying UK tax!

If they get rid of Johnsons' "attack dog", who's going to tell bozo what to say at PM's question time?

The way boris the buffoon has been bungling and blustering through PMQT shows that Cummings has been failing dismally in that department too.

Pretty damning when a featureless, dry as sticks, character bereft stiffie like Starmer can tie you in knots, no wonder Rees-Moggy is wanting the hecklers back. Feck any debate and scrutiny lets just shout it down, what a bunch of feral bairns.

So much for tackling the pandemic the whole cabinet is now spending its time defending the indefensible.

Any moral leadership on managing this crisis the government may have had is now gone, why should the country put up with lock down when the government holds up Cumming's behaviour as an exemplar model and bugger social distancing so as to get the rabble back into the house of commons to pursue their garrulous guffaw politics.

Just watch the infection rate rise again due to their culpable petty politics and gross stupidity.

You can just see the conspiracy theorists having a field day on why the government ditched test, track and trace and are being so tardy in bringing it back in case it exposed their one rule for them and another rule for the rest policies.

This failed country has got the lack of government it deserves.

Yet again there is no one in our political class fit for purpose and able to rise to this extreme occasion.
