That’s one of the worst photoshop jobs I’ve seen in my entire life.

There’s not even an effort to add a drop shadow near the boots.

Why should the post office be closed because of one blokes daughter?

If his daughter is vulnerable then wouldn't it make more sense for him and his family to self isolate while his deputy/staff keep an essential service running? I think you're calling out others as selfish is misplaced tbh.

All this fear and paranoia us starting to get out of control and people are losing the ability to be rational here.
Because its him, him and him. No staff, no deputy.

They are selfish c****.

It depends on whether its a large post office or a family running a corner shop with a PO counter.

Is that rational enough?

Skiing is kyboshed. Alps are shutdown.

Anywhere else where you can ski that’s still open?

I’m determined to swerve this lockdown.

I'm assuming its a large post office, not a one man band. Find it hard to beleive ppl would be so concerned that a little village post office is shut

Exactly my point.

People were asking "how will I get my mail?".

The same way you did previously you ignorant ****. The postman.

My Mrs read this morning that people are buying baby formula in case they can't get milk for their tea. How scummy is that!

Portugal too is Coronavirus free, yet it has a 500 mile border with Spain, which has over 1,000 reported cases
you mean apart from the 169 cases reported? :lol:

Ok , bit of a funny story that happened this morning .

We bought a couple of ' Roast In The Bag ' chickens from Asda yesterday as we have company for dinner tonight - Jen cooked them following the instructions this morning but something went wrong and the plastic bag burnt into the breasts of the chicken so she went off to the shops to buy some more .

She went to M&S this time and guess what - they had toilet paper . :D

Just those 4 pack jobs but better than nothing .

' How many did they have in the shop ? ' says I .

' Around 4 packs ' .

' What , and you only got one ? '.

' Yes . I left the rest for other customers ' .

' You'll never survive the Zombie Virus , not with an attitude like that ' teases I . :)

Anyway , tonight the arse gets wiped - first time in days , wonder what I'll find ?

Given we are on page 78 already, and the Brexit thread has got to 1315, as we are all likely to be confined to quarters at some point in April, what is the prediction for total number of pages on the Coronavirus thread by 30 April?

Gonna be huge folks.

80 - we will have resorted to cannibalism and will be about half way though the Zombie Apocalypse. 28 days later will become a true-story.
