    Oh wow mass broadcast, that’s unprecedented indeed!

    I hope they will say in the broadcast that they track this phone’s location and anybody leaving house more often than once a week will be “dealt with”

    Isn't that what they do in Venezuela? I thought this could only happen is Corbyn got in.


    Do you think our glorious leader Cummings will lift the restrictions once this is all over? What's that old saying, people should not be afraid of their government, the government should be afraid of the people.

    How did we 'out Russia' Putin's Russia so quickly since the Tories tightened their grip on power?

    Oh wow, vert clever retort - Russia isn’t actually in lock down because Govt there does not give a fook about people.

    Give it 2 weeks and there will be 95% support for checkpoints to stop people getting out of home - it’s far better to go strict and s-end less time in lockdown.

    Just got my text message. I'm sure GDPR rules have been broken here. I never gave HMG permission to spam me and there was no "Unsubscribe" option.
