As quiet around my usually bustling post-code as an early Sunday morning in terms of people & vehicles bar essential service/council etc.
Oddly, despite being adjacent to the huge Larbert Forth Valley hospital’s main arterial road, I’ve not heard one Ambulance/ Police/ Fire tender Blue 'n 2 today.
Tesco was easy peasy this morning. More staff than punters at 8 am.
Bog paper, Kitchen roll, tinned branded veg, pasta & rice still absent, but a health abundance of most other regular stuff.
Tesco have allotted to pensioners like us, and “vulnerables” a 9am-10am slot on Mondays, Wed, and Friday.
Come the weekend, the new lock-down “advices” will escalate to enforced apparently but frankly, apart from not taking our cars out, it’s not going to make any huge impacts on us.
Will miss a glen blast though but hey-ho. Needs must and it’s for the best.
Take care all, see you out & about on the other side of this utter festival of dog dung.
For sure, things are never going to be quite the same.
Organisations will see they can cull middle managers, fast food indies will vanish, likely some multi franchises as well. Working from home where possible will increase but I believe there will be thousands of those who end up on a shaky peg with that.
The UK…may wake up to realise it needs more UK based supply chains than rely on imports.
More jobs then? However, the UK will pay heavily over years to come for the following 6/8/10 months. National debt over 2 Trillions…from a Money Tree that suddenly sprouted from nowhere. It’s just plastic monopoly quantitative easing again of course. As if by magic.
Frankly a few things need to be but it’s a hell of a price in terms of deaths , lifestyles, badly needed incomes and general threats to wellbeing to pay. The lesson, not that it will ever be adopted by those who need most to heed it, is that modern society is laced with isolationisim, sociopathy, selfishness, crass lunacy and black hearted thieves & vagabonds…the types thieving supplies from hospitals and spitting on nurses.
Thankfully in the minority…apparently.
It’s also highlighting selfless humanity, and thank God ( where is He just now?) for them.
