    That is so sexist. Don't you know that 5% of firemen are women?

    I see various police forces have been bollocked for being over zealous and tinpot Hitler-esque. Today it was Cambridgeshire for going through people's shopping and telling them what they could or couldn't buy.

    Devon and Cornwall have obviously eased off a bit. When this first kicked off they were putting in road blocks. Now ti's being reported that loads of 'travellers' have turned up in Devon and Cornwall after driving down the M5. The locals are pretty upset judging by some of the social media comments.

    Well almost, but not quite:

    "The full tweet from the Cambridge Police Twitter said: "Officers visited Tesco Barhill this morning as part of their patrols around supermarkets and green spaces this weekend.

    "Good to see everyone was abiding by social distancing measures and the non essential aisles were empty."

    A Cambridgeshire Police spokeswoman said: "For clarification, the force position, in line with national guidance, is that we are not monitoring what people are buying from supermarkets. This message was sent with good intentions by an over exuberant officer who has been spoken to since this tweet was published."

    Devon and Cornwall Police; so named because one is from Devon and the other one is from Cornwall.

    One of them can read, the other write. And one from Somerset to keep an eye on the two dangerous intellectuals..

    I don't want the police to ease up, I want them to be right fucking bastards who question, sanction and fine any cuddly wuddly beary beary boo who thinks the rules don't apply to them. Fuck 'policing by consent', it won't work with this crisis in today's society.

    We have a WhatsApp group for the street, set up a few days ago so we can ask for help or offer support.

    Yesterday's request was 'can I borrow a lawnmower', today's requests and help have included info on where to buy eggs and flour (little village a few miles away), where to get meat for the BBQ (opening hours for a butcher in the town centre) and 'where can we get charcoal?' (Sainsbury's superstore).

    Let's redefine 'essential'.

    Thing is, the rules are guidance and there isn't any law to say you can't be out.

    We Police by consent in this country, we don't want the public to lose any more faith in the 'system'.

    That's a barbecue for family members domiciled together, yes?

    "
    Another 40 patients 'cleared' of coronavirus test POSITIVE for Covid-19 again in South Korea, bringing total 'reactivations' to 91"



    If it's down to a flaw in the accuracy of accepted Testing methods I'm a little concerned that Nations who've also signed up to the TEST TEST TEST principle, especially Germany & China may have a bit of a shock comming. Could HMG have made the right choice in not testing/waiting for better science?
