The area is requesting the schools be reopen and life returns to normal. Sussex's death rate is less than 0.0001 with less than 500 cases for 2 million people since February.

The overall feeling is:

If those who commute to London stay at home
Universities & colleges stay closed & no language students are allowed.

Life can get back to normal for the rest of us.


Life will never be 'normal' again: not until there is an effective vaccine for us all.
Those urging a let up on lockdown could be the end of us all.
I give all praise to Boris this morning for not giving in to the early leavers in his address to the Nation.

No ones in a hurry to return to work.

For those who are working right now, the lockdown made no real difference. They're looking forwards to the May bank holiday next week. A long weekend of relaxing and socializing.

What about the others?

Those on "furlong" are happy to continue the lockdown until Aug.If you're only making min wage returning to work has no appeal.

People working from home feel the same way. There happily sat on their sofas in there underwear smoking and eating junk food while working. None of the office politics or daily commute & less stress.

The talk is all about the second wave of the pandemic expected in Oct. Most companies are planning for it now. A more deadly strain of the virus that will shut down the country over the winter months.

More automation less human's.

Supermarkets are investigating robotic replenishment systems. Self service till's are common and this maybe the next step.

Self drive busses and taxis are also being discussed. All transport may be automated in the coming years from lorries to home delivery van's.

No one's got any faith in the government here or in the US.
Instead of locking down by regional area based on infection rates, they closed the whole of the UK down.

With only one death recorded in latest Sussex figures

See:

https://www.theargus.co.uk/news/1842372 ... x-figures/

Its now a joke.

Said on the radio this morning that we, the GBP are more than 60% satisfied with our government and what it has achieved so far.
Horses for courses?
Right man for the job!
Aren't we the lucky ones!

The only good things about the social distancing rules are:

You don't need to use toilet paper [bootyshake.gif]
Showering is optional :woot:
And you dont have to make others a tea :winedrinker:
