    True, but if pubs and non-essential shops are all shut then there will be less reason for most people to be out and about on the roads

    Notwithstanding politics.. one of the NHS Dr's I follow on Youtube confesses most staff now are fatigued, without the adrenaline they had going into the first lockdown. His concern now is they work themselves into the grave whilst the public applaud their efforts outside the front door like it is some sort of badge of honour. Find the applauding to be honest a little weird as do a number of staff - hope it stops. Sister in-law works in the NHS, the opinions seem to be 'we're doing what we're doing because it is necessary' - there's a real out of touch feeling between what I'm hearing from family working in the trenches and those running the country, but I'm sure you all know that.
    I don't know about Deutschland, but it stopped here back in May/June. You really are 'out of touch'...with reality, mainly...

    It stopped everywhere, but Scooty didn't get the memo...

    Hoping to preclude a reintroduction during the 2nd lockdown should things turn to the worst.

    Can't see that happening now; we're happy to go out on a nice spring evening, but on a cold wet night in November, not so much...

    In our village they're trying to get everyone to get out for remembrance day and do something .... ring a bell, blow a trumpet or something. They've also talked about resurrecting the NHS thing but as you say, folks are less keen now the weather has turned

    Don't worry, that well known journalist, Nigel Farage, will relaunch the Brexit Party as an anti-lockdown party called the Reform Party

    Sent from my 5g carrier pigeon
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
