Apart from some really ridiculous ideas from the Department of Transportation on how to mitigate this crisis, I have, up to now, had some admiration for the governments proactive handling of the situation. But now I fear they are going into panic mode with ideas that are both impractical and badly thought out.
As someone who lives alone with a fairly large dog, I am now faced with the choice of walking my pet only once a day, which is not enough, or foregoing that necessity if I need to go and buy food.
Did nobody in government think this situation through? What is the harm in walking your pet responsibly keeping a safe distance from others? It’s a dammed sight safer than going to the supermarket.
Closing supermarkets on Sundays only increases the density of shoppers on the adjacent days. It’s as senseless as giving a two week period of grace for MOT renewals. Come on government. Wake up!
