The UK is not Switzerland. Agree on that. But what's the motivation to point at this? Places and peopel are different, so?
I believe that the UK is making (another) terrible mistake with what they're about to announce today. I'm praying for friends and family there

Switzerland is showing the way of how it could be done so much better!

I'm astounded that this needs to be explained when we all went through this at the start of pandemic and saw all these curves.

I'm astounded by the fact that tonyClifton hates socialism when he excels at being publicly owned

10pm closing time for pubs, bars, and restaurants in England and a ban on indoor team sports, such as five-a-side football, are so bad that you have to pray for friends and family there

You've got a short memory, it was only a few weeks ago when you lost your head and started accusing every lockdown sceptic of being a "libertarian" some of the responses you got back then must have stung.

What a burn that's all that matter's here isn't it, getting the "win", appearing to be right in this little expat bubble whilst being "wrong" the majority of the time in the real world.

Re: Coronavirus

England just announced 6 months more of sever measures. Expecting the devolved governments to follow soon. The UK economy won't take 6 months more of this madness

Could be time to sell up there and cut ties for good!

"sever measures"? They are cutting loose the devolved governments?

Meanwhile, from today, people arriving in Italy from Paris and seven other areas of France will have to undergo mandatory coronavirus tests.

Italy’s health minister, Roberto Speranza, wrote on Twitter that “European data is worrying”. He added: “Italy is doing better than other countries but we need to be cautious.”

Bravo, keep them coming!

I don't know what I did to upset Ouchboy, I seem to have gotten under his skin at some point as this isn't the first time. He never has anything of value to say but does enjoy nipping in from time to time to take a pop at me. Just another angry or frustrated man?

there is no point in rebutting your diatribes. your "points" are better made by 20 yr old twitch streamers, and ar also far more entertaining.


It is clear to me and others than the only person yet to present anything of value is you. You have been moving from unread article to unread article so much that it is a futile enterprise to keep track of your bad arguments. Perhaps you need more love at home? get a plant?

Sit on the sidelines and throw mud, at least you're honest. Good to know I've gotten under your skin though without even trying :*

The "Stay at home" nonsense won't fly anymore in Portugal, they are following the Swedish way.

Never been tested so far and as far as I know I haven't gotten it yet, or if I did I never noticed it

I worked during all of lock down, every day, flew to England in May when hotels were closed, I am at least twice a week in France, visited all of the Adriatic from Slovenia to Montenegro in the summer. I never put a mask on, I wash my hands and avoid crowds by any means, stopped using public transport.

I only know of 4 people who caught back in March, nobody else.

That's a bit of an extreme reaction. You've gone from praying for family and friends to cutting ties based purely upon a government announcement? I dread to think how you'd cope with a real emergency.

I'm not 'praying' for friends and family in the UK over covid. They're pretty switched on folk and know how to look after themselves. Weird side effect is that having a well stocked pantry has come back into fashion amongst many of them, and we're drying seeds ready to plant next year. It's a huge switch from the gigs and parties lifestyle we used to live, but we're getting competitive over home grown tomatoes and home baked sourdough bread instead I am concerned that the travel industry I come from has been decimated. Almost every day I hear of another friend or team which has been laid off, totalling over 60 so far since April but it seems to be accelerating with the end of furlough on the horizon. It will come back, but it took years to recover from 9/11 and was never the same as before. We shall see...

Of course V____ avoided it, wearing a mask, staying at home, obeying all the rules.
