The Government has started to ease measures today by allowing people in England unlimited exercise. As this also allows travel to beauty spots, national Parks, the countryside and beaches we are technically allowed to ride motorbikes again.
The new government slogan has changed from ‘Stay at Home’ to ‘Stay Alert’. I am finding many people’s reaction frustrating as they claim the new measures, slogan and instructions confusing. What I am confused about is the instructions announced were perfectly clear to me and made sense for the slogan change. There seems to be a group who are determined to be bloody minded with anything that the PM says, first complaining that there needs to be a plan for coming out of lockdown, and yet when a ‘sketched map’ is announced, that is wrong too. The divide in people’s thinking echoes that of Brexit.
