    He sounds like the okee kokee song. In out In out....The only thing he hasn't got us doing is shaking it all about!!! So, some people are ok to go to work...but be vigilant. Vigilant about what? Is there a cat burglar in town that I don't know about?!!! MAKE IT CLEAR WHAT YOU MEAN BO JO!!

    We're still supposed to stay at home and social distance, but we can have unlimited exercise. Some of our poor little kiddies are apparently going back to school in June. Why? When they would break up for the summer around Jun/July. Surely it would be better to start them back in September? And then we have this new thing; The Covid alert system. It looks like the hot level chart that Nandos use to determine whether a sauce or their chicken is hot with pepper!!

    I'm really confused...are you???

    I don't think the back to school thing is going to work out as smoothly as he is implying. Several schools around here have already said no, out right. Others have said maybe, it depends, more information is needed before a decision can be made. meanwhile, many teachers in those schools have said no!

    Its not so much the year 6s and year 10s that are causing the worry, it is the reception and year 1 children, without social distancing, that is the issue

    Come June, the government doesn't have to agree to any reopening, if it does, individual authorities and MATs don't have to agree to reopen, if they do, individual schools don't have to, and if THEY do too, individual teachers don't have to go in, and individual parants might not comply.

    So the chances are, even if the government gives the green light, come June, which they might very well not, almost no children will actually go back, anyway.

    Apparently from 1st June it will be ok for us to go into school with 4&5 year olds who will have no idea about safe distancing and hygiene, but not safe for us to go for a haircut! A complete shambles from the beginning by Boris and his government.

    In case you missed it, Matt Lucas was commissioned to produce this video to clear up any confusion in Johnson's speech.

    Unfortunately they know 4 & 5 year olds won't socially distance. I think they are basically saying that the classes of 15 students are a 'bubble' like your household. If one child gets if everyone has to quarantine. They no it will spread between those 15 children and their households. They did say they wanted to slow the spread not completely stop it.
