I was watching the bins being emptied the other day and the same occurred to me a 3 man crew in a cab because health and safety meant they cant ride on the back like in the olden days, none of them wearing gloves masks or any other protective equipment other then a hi vis and im guessing steelies.Our local council had their sub contractors cutting and strimming the grass along our lane yesterday. Three blokes, all in the front of a Transit pick up.
Here's the thing - out today to collect Woman's prescription. This takes me past the old Council Office, which closed this January.
For some reason, there's a chap on a scissor lift painting window frames. WT very F, I thought-that can't be 'essential work'?
Then again, he's a lone worker, there's no office workers to interact with and he's earning some cash and keeping his (probably) 1-man business going.
No harm, no foul?

Getting the text the next day at 2pm saying "New rules in force now: you must stay at home" I assumed that the lockdown had become more stringent and spent 10 minutes trying to find these 'new' rules that didn't exist.
it’s also about stopping people ending up getting a trip with blues and 2’s to intensive care.Where does it say they're not OK?
I guess it's all a way of limiting the number of people out and about at the same time, despite all hygiene precautions and social distancing?
On Ilkley Moor.And one form of exercise at that*, if I heard correctly (in my defence, I was mid medicine round when the announcement was made).
*As opposed to "baht 'at"**, which is just silly.
**Some Northern dialect for 'bare headed' or, perhaps, tourist speak for a cheap and tacky piece of Thai headgear.
