Shouldn’t be travelling about for holidays anyway, like the people out in parks and beaches mostly too close together and potentially catching or spreading the virus far and wide.

Personally I think this 'fear of outsiders' is getting scary, as scary as idiots who keep congregating in parks and the like.

We're all in this together for better or worse.

We love our caravan and are out most weekends and for main holidays from Easter until November. This year we are following government advise and not going anywhere until told its safe. No day trips no weekends no holidays. Stay home stay safe. Best way for everyone.

regards

So, why are the press just showing younger people on the beach, in the park, socialising wherever, What wrong with showing us more mature people, breaking the socialising rules also

I thinkt hey are. The Scottish Sun is showing the Scottish Chief Medical Officer visiting her holiday home, against her own advice. A trip of 100 miles or so. Not for the proles though.

I have sat in all day (bit of time in the shed), the majority of people walking past the house are in the 70+ age group!

I fully expect to hear on Monday that we are only allowed out for work and food shopping.

The wife works in a shop and is serving the same people every day, with such essentials as bars of chocolate or pack of chewing gum!

I live in an area of predominantly young and middle aged people so the opposite applies outside my house!

Personally I think the Government has been giving the wrong message the emphasis has been on protecting other people, (NHS still needs protecting though) a lot do not care about others as regularly shown in supermarkets etc.

The government are not making people think about the true consequences of socialising or getting too close the message should geared towards ‘if you socialise or get too close to others you may well get get the virus you and your loved ones could die as a result’.
