Don't think he had much choice, too many people not listening
What did he say
Pleased to note that “advice” has become “instruction”.
Hes had a stern word with us, not much else.
Teachers r still free to b guinea pigs and risk their lives to babysit kids.
Lockdown for 3 weeks
I think the pictures of crowds in the great outdoors finally did it. Good
You're right. Many people ignored advice this weekend, so shutdown. Same thing happened last weekend in France with the same consequences.
I feel sick, I have to admit. It's horribly scary.
backed up by police
One things for sure we won't forget 2020 in a hurry!
I do too.I was expecting it but it’s still a shock.
From the BBC website:
Here are the major points of his speech:
From tonight, people in Britain will be allowed to leave their homes for only “very limited purposes” - shopping for basic necessities; for one form of exercise a day; for any medical need; and to travel to and from work when “absolutely necessary”
People are warned not to meet friends or family members who they do not live with
Shopping is only permitted for essentials like food and medicine, and people are advised to do it “as little as you can”
Police have powers to enforce the rules, including through fines and dispersing gatherings
All shops selling non-essential goods, such as clothing and electronic stores, are ordered to close
Libraries, playgrounds, outdoor gyms and places of worship are to close
All gatherings of more than two people in public - excluding people you live with - are banned
All social events, including weddings and baptisms are banned
Funerals are not included in the new restrictions
Parks will remain open for exercise but gatherings will be dispersed
If this counts as a stern word in your class kjh what do you if a kid swears at you?
Interesting to note the BBC reporters are out and about on the streets to bring us this story. Or was it all faked in a studio like the moon landing?
Anyone hazard a guess as to whether I can still move house on Friday???
You comments are becoming increasingly bizarre.
I know it's quite popular to criticise Tory governments but I think Boris got it just about right tonight. No silliness, no mock stuttering etc.
Hopefully, we'll be OK.
You don't find it odd being told we must stay inside by reporters who apparently need to be outside to tell us?
He got the tone right, but it remains a complete mystery what plans are in place to provide food and essential goods to those who can't shop or get delivery slots.
