The COVID Diaries – 46 13th May
We can’t visit relatives, but we can visit the Estate Agent. Meanwhile people are crammed into the London Underground like sardines. There is no logic to the “eased” lockdown rules.
Except, of course, the logic of a desperate government that has found its plans in tatters and doesn’t really have a clue as to what to do next. So they’ve ended up trying to ride two horses that are galloping off in opposite directions. Stay safe by maintaining social distancing, but go to work despite the fact that you cannot travel safely to get there (and it will be your fault if you catch the virus!).
Beaches, country parks and beauty spots across England were busy today as people were free to drive as far as they wanted for the first time since the coronavirus lockdown started, with police warning it may become more difficult to enforce the regulations.
