Interesting report on Sky just now, unrest is starting to raise its head in Italy, I mentioned earlier in the thread that long term lockdowns are unsustainable, people simply won’t accept or tolerate them, massive problems ahead.

I've got absolutely no issues with being paid to sit in my house for the next 6months or so.

It’s really hard on extroverts; one of my former colleagues is losing her mind- she cannot stay still unless she is socializing and is always going here and there and knows everyone.

Power corrupts once the powerful enjoy the taste. Dont take civil liberties for granted 

Cops and the military will die from this too. I don't think they're very much enjoying being outside, coming in contact with people who may be infected.

Yeah but not every one will, the report showed a man and wife fighting with police because they were trying to get to family members for money and were being prevented from doing so, then showed reports of supermarkets being looted, like I say, massive problems ahead.

You seem to live in a fairytale world where british police do not or will not abuse the powers given. Good for you.

The people worried about these lock downs being the first step toward some kind of long term martial law or police state situation couldn't be further from the point and are weirdos. 

 

Hmmm. It strikes me that if anyone was planning a more permanent rollback of freedoms, that this would be the perfect situation for seeing how far you could go. Certainly we're finding out which individuals can be relied upon to toe the government line unquestionably, mentioning no names.

Some people will be unruly dickheads, no doubts there.  The rest will have to tough it out until a vaccine arrives.

From memory Gnasher is getting on for 60.  Maybe he should be allowed to do whatever he wants.  What’s the worst that could happen?

Right, you got me down to a tee. I'm a big government guy.

Listen squire, I have lived enough to know exactly what the Police are like. I've done and seen things you can only dream about. I've fought alongside and against many forms of authority. The closest you've been to having any sort of real life is wanking over Police Academy 2 in your mums box room.

I couldn't agree more. It's a perfect dress rehearsal.  As for the mentioning of names I'd say approximately 90% of this forum, although that may be down to the prevalent herd mentality that exists here

Agree in principle but a vaccine is what, 12 to 18 months away? It is simply impossible to enforce lockdown for anywhere near that length of time.

I dont want or advocate people doing what they want. I'm simply asking for a bit of perspective in the hysteria.

There's no easy answers, though.  By encouraging people to go out and with your laissez-faire attiutude more people will die from the virus.
