    good job I was on my best behaviour, mind you first time out in 8-10 weeks so driving miss daisy time probably baffled them lol

    quite a few bikes out and I saw at least 4 groups of bikes with around 6-8 riders out and about, I thought group rides were a no no ?


    On a plus side I popped over to the guy that does my MOT's and he is working so able to book in the CBR, I know there is supposed to be an extension but I am not that trusting of our Gov or any MP for that matter



    The MOT extension is genuine as mine ran out mid April and has auto extension as found on the GOV website...

    It would appear that, faced with the government's ambiguous declarations ("go to work" "don't go to work"), people have in general decided "what the feck" and are largely going out as and when they feel like it, although where they're going is less clear. If they aren't going to work, supermarket or garden centre, there's nowhere else open so they're all travelling to exercise, or more likely just to pay someone a visit.

    Saw people picnicking today who either live in a household with 4 adults and 5 kids or have decided not to bother with distancing. Sharing the same blanket

    Next door’s kid has been having visits from his girlfriend and various mates all week

    Opposite’s daughter has visited, and again today with her boyfriend.

    Seems to me people have given up. Sadly Covid doesn’t choose the morons to target otherwise we’d have some excellent natural selection happening

    I've read NHS staff are getting p*ssed that every one goes out to clap for them on a Thursday then head off to the hills and the beaches whilst on furlough to spread covid whilst they work their nuts off risking their lives to save the stupid b*stards!

    Some of the first words of wisdom I've encountered for a little while .

    I have to shake my head every Thursday watching the village idiots all stand at their front gates clapping their hands for the NHS then huddling up together afterwards for a gossip and passing the plague onto each other.
    On a personal note iv been delivering prescriptions for vulnerable people who “supposedly” are shielding and can’t leave the house for ANY reason, in the last 2 weeks I’d estimate iv had to return 20% of them to the pharmacy as when I knocked the person has been out!

    So the latest comms is that if you use instinct its ok!!! So my instinct is to go out for lots of rides on my bike...what a farce, don't normally express a view on these things but this is a joke.

    Well, if that sh!tweasel Dominic Cummings can interpret lockdown rules in phase one as he pleases and drive 250 miles up-country while exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms then I can foresee a lot of people seeing the government’s frantic excusing and covering-up as giving the rest of us pretty much carte blanche to do as we please and any attempts to keep a lid on peoples movements will be overwhelmed...

    Have to agree he should have made a stand but no, this has given the green light to interpret the lockdown as you see fit. What a crazy thing to do....
