It did make you feel guilty, I really want to support the industry but then feel guilty 😬

Sat Night is curry night for us in Rochester. Old high street darkly lit stretch but bloody good food. 27 years the curry house has been there and I’m hope Mr Ali will be open as usual . 
Went to Kingdom in Penshurst today, half a dozen punters and a couple of staff. Think everyone was shopping in Polhill and that’s why it took half hour to queue for the till. Sad to see old folks in the queue putting on a brave face. Defiantly. We took fresh veg round to my gfs parents. And they gave us a bog roll. 
 

Radio said police were called to 9 fights in Supermarkets in Southwark today. Lol ..nice to see how all this brings out the best in folks.

My department at work are all working from home, so tomorrow at 4:30 (and every Friday) we are having "virtual beers" via Zoom video conferencing.

Walked past my local pub last night, 3 or 4 people in it having a drink. This is after I have just spent ages queuing in Waitrose with 600 other people  :huh:

This is the other side of the argument though.

 

It’s seen as anti social to be in the pub for an hour with a few other people but ok to be in the supermarket for the same period with 600+

 

Crazy times indeed, but to answer the orig question no I wouldn’t despite my other views on the whole subject

To expand a bit on my previous comment the Government are sending us a cheque to help with the interruption* to trade. I am taking a view that if I take that payment I will adhere to what we are being asked to do.

 

*This is a fecking massive understatement

My local has turned itself into a small shop so people can get essentials, cheaply too, so long as suppliers can/are supplyinh the pub. Plus they are doing takeaway food from their menu.  I guess in an attempt to keep cash flowing.

Yeah, we had a pub takeaway last night (run by family so felt we should support them). Still about 20 people in the pub having a drink though.

Here in Jordan we're effectively in lock down and have been since the beginning of this week. No flights into or out of the country since midnight on Monday and all border crossings closed. Main routes into and out of Amman have checkpoints msnned by the military to check for paperwork that allows certain essential services to continue to be provided. Restaurants, cafes, sporting facilities, cinemas etc etc etc all closed. Restaurants are though still able to offer a delivery service. Essential movements only which means for vital shopping and medical needs. And the population in general seems to be reacting well to it.

Total number of confirmed cases is 69 with one that has recovered. No reported deaths. About 6,000 in enforced quarantine but most of the population really are abiding by social distancing.

As an Embassy we're operating in crisis mode with a core team of about a dozen of us working shifts to ensure that we can keep the Embassy functioning and provide vital reporting to London. 75% of our 250 staff now work from home with the other 25% being allowed to come into the office for vital work that can't be done remotely.

My sense (and this is a personal view) is the Jordanian government reacted proportionately and effectively. And there is overall tremendous support for the military in how they are handling the situation.

I'm honestly glad I'm here rather than back in the UK.

Very envious mate. TurboBob and I went to see them twice at Christmas 2017. Manchester and London. I'd have loved to have come back this June to see them but couldn't guarantee the leave so far in advance to be able to get tickets.

:yeahthat:

 

There were about 10 people in the pub - we practiced social distancing   :grouphug:  Probably a similar number in the Indian. 

 

If it was irresponsible to go to the pub, it must be more irresponsible to go to the supermarket.  :beat:
