Yes, plenty of respected economists and political theorists.

So glad I have a good local shop which sells everything, so I don't have to deal with the supermarket situation. Aiming to go in once a week rather than every couple of days, as I normally would. Finally got my prescription from the local chemist too.
I got to my local Tesco for 06:15 this morning and feared the worst when I saw the queue but it was moving steadily and i was in the store within 5 minutes. All trolley and basket handles were being sanitised before entering as well as your hands and only a certain number of people were allowed in at any one time. The entrance to the store was partitioned so there was only one way in and one way out. People were being very respectful of the 2 metre rule and there was a strict waiting zone at the tills so it seems that supermarkets are getting on top of the situation and the madness of the last couple of weeks, in the supermarkets at least, is over.
I even got bog roll!

Glad the situation is getting easier for some. My friend down in London has just said he's struggling to get fresh vegetables though.

We also feared the worst Chilli' prior to arriving at Tesco at 8am, no need to be concerned as it was a breeze due to the staff & their organisation

Thumbs up to Tesco :tup:

....and so now the pm and health secretary have got the dreaded bug.

how the hell did that happen?

have they not been observing the 2 metre rule, or have they touched something and then touched their face ignoring the rule to wash hands?

so much pr from having no audience on their daily briefings and weekly briefing with her maj by phone.....yet in real life they must have caught it in one of 2 ways, by ignoring their own rules.

hypocrits!
