Do You Think We Need a Full Lock down Now?

After seeing this and many more stories I just want the government to fully lock us down the same as Italy and France. These idiots are making sitting ducks of everyone.

Janhrrs some people think because they feel fine they can go out and some just think their invincible. Going by other countries its not only the elderly and those with current health conditions that should be concerned. You want to see the amount of people that have flocked to the beach or parks around here over the weekend. Our local council has shut all parks and play areas. Boris needs to get us on lockdown like yesterday πŸ™ˆ

YES.....tomorrow if we want to follow the Italian numbers.

The airports are the worst there people are in lines to cross security and no social distance and they also not testing them....so full lock down needed.

Also people are walking outside...i can see them...no social distance...today I only saw one lady who went for shopping the rest of the people just having fun, even elderly....very soon it will not be fun

Janhrrs Today in 15 min I counted 9 people who should not walk outside because they are fall into that elderly group who should stay at home. Not sure why they do not take this seriously...

These people are almost (if not more) as stupid as those who went out to pubs on Friday night because they perhaps wouldn't be able to for a few months. It seems they just can't understand how serious things are, maybe when there is a total lockdown and they're not allowed to they might suddenly realise they should have listened to common sense reasons (obviously not their own) and restricted their movements before they and everybody else are forced to.

I feel very sorry for essential workers, who are willing to risk their own well being, who are not helped by idiots who are making their jobs even harder.

davidstockport Yep. What made it even worse in our village was that one of the locals (a Brains pub) posted on Facebook that they were giving beer for free until the barrels run out.

How irresponsible can you get?

TheChimp That's ironic; a Brains pub giving beer to people who need one.☺☺☺

If even one of the customers (and I'll assume there were plenty) was carrying the virus, there are probably many more now who carry it. Your village is DOOMED☺

I think there needs to be a lockdown as people simply aren’t following the rules. There were so many examples of this in the media over the weekend the Lake District, National Trust Properties and beaches all full of groups of people. Queues at fast food and ice cream vans with no social distancing. Even queues for shops, the list goes on. There has to be more stringent controls to slow down the spread of this virus.

What I don't understand is everywhere I go online, none of the people who stockpiled bog rolls or filled parks at the weekend seem to exist. They must be reading the criticism and hearing it on the radio yet the madness continues.

No we don't need lock down. If you look at Italy, locking down hasn't solved anything. What we need is rid of the scaremongering that has lead to the panic buying and poor information given out

I am reliably informed by a real Italian person that the reason it hasn't worked is people are flouting the rules, like they are here. We just need to work together on this. Tell mates and family members to stop taking the mick.

Dennab That's exactly the problem. Sadly though we seem to have too many idiots. I have always fought against any 'big brother' ideas wholeheartedly but for the first time in my life I feel like I need to hand over my freedom to the government because if it is not made a legal lock down people will continue to flaunt it and put themselves and everybody else at risk.

nissan3 realistically, I think the police are going to struggle, the same as the NHS, but hopefully, at the very least, it will make some people change their behaviour and then if the police catch some and start enforcing fines maybe some more will listen. I can't see what else they can do but if it doesn't change then we are going to be in for an even rougher ride πŸ˜”.

Hi jwhitaker537 I have no idea but at some point they will have income again. To be fair at the moment in my area at least it appears to have gone past this. The flouters have lessened but now we are left with some real vile creatures flouting the rules and giving the police unnecessary work. 2 days ago we had 2 male adults spitting and swearing at an elderly lady who dared to try to walk in our local park. Our police resources are being wasted by these type of heartless morons now and I'm pretty certain it's not just where I live. I know what I would like to do with them.

I don't understand how so many people can be so pig ignorant and feel that rules do not apply to them. At time of writing there have been 6,650 cases (known) of this virus and 335 deaths. That is almost 1 in every 20.......that's 5% of all known cases. At the start of this crisis we were told it would be between 1 and 2%. People who do not listen are fools who imperil not only themselves, but everyone else too.

Lynibis that's exactly how I feel, it's incredulous and to be honest, I feel certain people, are every bit as dangerous as the virus with their laissez faire attitudes. I'm glad you are commenting, after what I've picked up on here from a few posts recently. ☺️

Janhrrs actually I can't believe some of the comments on here. Why don't we all just carry on as normal then and each person can then infect another 15,000 people within 10 days. Let us lose our loved ones and many who are younger and live productive lives, and let's all see the nhs collapse under the burden. Makes me sick when folk only think of themselves. Obviously not keeping track of the news.

Lynibis some comments are unbelievable. I love discussions and arguing with people in a civilised manner, it's healthy and you can learn from it but some of the comments, how can you even respond to them? I don't want to be insulting but if that's really the way their minds work there is no point and if they are just trying to wind people up then jog on, who needs it at the moment. Stay safe x

It's a difficult one all this. I feel extremely uncomfortable with the restrictions placed upon us, the loss of our freedom & I am amazed at how easily its been able to happen, having said that & I'm aware that this is probably contridictory I can see why it has had to happen & can't see that there was another way. I just hope covid-19 does one as quickly as possible, that we can get back to normality & regain our freedoms back asap. I fear things are only going to get worse tho.....

Exactly Glitterandgold, I am 57 and since the age of 15 have always fought against any restrictions to my speech or freedom. Back in the day when we had strikes I was there if I believed in it and was threatened with the loss of my civil service job for secondary striking, it's something I hold very dear. Now, however, due in large to the amount of people that seem to lack any sense of responsibility or common sense I feel I am throwing my rights and freedoms to the government as quick as I can to help prevent other people's ridiculous behaviour. It is definitely a sad time.
