Bored out of my mind.
I know I must not complain. There are millions worse off than me.
But the boredom, lack of stimulation, the solitude really plays with your mind.

warning for everybody in the uk...our lockdown started at two weeks. Tonight it has just been extended to six!

I cannot see that the UK will be finished after 3 weeks of lockdown. Prepare yourselves for an extension too.

One thing I have noticed...it is impossible to have any sense of urgency to do anything.
So what if I don’t do that little job today? Who cares? There is always tomorrow or next week or next month.
Physically, I’m fine.
Mentally, the next five weeks feel like five years.
I am grateful to have my large garden. Without that, it would be even more difficult.

i am not looking for sympathy. I’m really not.
Just warning you that lockdown can be difficult.

Boris never had any intention of this only lasting three weeks. He knows if he tells the truth people won't tolerate it. You can't believe anything a Conservative says.

turn it in
if Corbyn had won it would of been much worse perhaps if people had listened to his advice in the beginning it might not have been as bad
unfortunately the lefts righteousness is going to make it worse

Who said anything about Corbyn? Boris doesn't know any more than us. He is being advised by people who have some understanding of the situation. He is just a puppet who has been dumped in a very difficult position and he is trying to handle it. He knows if he tells people that staying at home for three weeks will help beat this the majority will do it. Some will do it because they believe him and most will do it through fear. But if he said we need to stay at home for six months he would have a riot on his hands. It is a Conservatives natural instinct to lie but i would prefer the truth. If i need to stay at home for six months tell me that. When the three weeks ends an extension might reluctantly be tolerated. But after that the public will turn against him.

no one knows how long this is going to last not even the scientists
so if you think 3 weeks is a lie.fine
if it takes 6 months then it takes 6 months
what I do know is this country and the people in it are all faced with the same problem
rich or poor young or old weve got to follow the advice given

What is the truth?
The truth is nobody knows what it is or how long it will last. Some people like scientists and virus experts have a better idea than the rest of us but they are only guessing while they work on a cure. I would prefer it if Boris told me that but i understand why he doesn't.

Fuck knows how long this will actually go on for. Only exit strategies are either, a vaccine or herd immunity. Looking at 18 months to 2 years playing cat and mouse with this.

Agreed and that's why governments can only watch and see what's happening in China, Italy etc, Then they feed us information as they understand it.

I'd imagine anyone with half a brain already knows that. On top of scientists, chemists and a heap of other specialists the government are taking advice from behavior experts and psychologists. It's imperative that the nation is not panicked into losing their marbles and self control, the last thing anyone wants or needs is anarchy, they can't and must not lose control. You seem to want Boris to tell you something that they don't know, he's just a messenger at this point, do you not get that? As an example, what do think would happen if he told us all that they are helpless and it's every man for himself?

Riots, looting, people running around in space suits and Diane Abbot counting the dead.
