Not sure that the definition of phase 1 is correct. We are involved with 6 construction projects (on site). Four of them have carried on throughout the lockdown. One started back up last week. The other one starts again on Monday.

Be interesting if they tried that here; furlough payments would have long expired by the time my colleagues got back to work.

It doesn't mention pubs even in phase 5, and bars are to remain closed even in phase 4. No sign of my beautiful pubs.

They won't be trying that here because if they do, decades after the revolution, you will be able to buy T-Shirts bearing a picture of The Great Revolutionary Leader.

Me.

It's great that they added ❄️ loads of unnecessary emojis, otherwise I would have not been  interested as my attention span is  really short.

:wanker:

 

Well if that's the same roadmap we'll be using in the UK, me and the wife will have to decide which one of the 3 kids to get rid of.

If the virus is seasonal, as viruses tend to be and Aus and NZ very much suggest is true for CV19, then this is going to look very silly when you get to the middle of June and there are no cases left to report in the daily briefings.

There are no new cases, nobody has died.  As you were.

All depends how you are planning your coup - if it is from an internal sabotage point of view and you are planning on doing a crash course in becoming an MP you may find you don't have to bother with your revolution cos' you can bet your hip flask that the commons bar will be open as part of stage zero.

It's all a bit "OVER", or very nearly. I'm sure the "news" of it will last much longer.

Yesterday's news, today's chip papers.

I'm amazed that so many are still viewing this as a "clear and present danger" when it just isn't.

Boris has turned into a big girl's blouse since he caught it. New leader with moral courage and character required; bring back Margaret.

Careful what you wish for, but I did OK ripping off Margaret.

Yeah that's what I liked about it.

People will be needing more emojis these days

He claimed it was from a mate in govt.

I assume the civil service like emojis so it must be true.

I'm almost certain it's from the Republic of Ireland as it refers to GAA (Gaelic football).

Also there's never been a 5km limit on travel in the UK (and we don't use km officially anyway).

I've never heard the phrase 'cocooning' used in this country either. Civil servants would be terrified people might think it was racist.
