    The UK has officially entered lockdown. All non-essential travel is banned, all shops excluding those selling essentials are to shut, no gatherings of more than 2 people. Gyms and leisure centres etc all closed. Bars and restaurants already were.

    No footie, no pubs and no takeaways, thank SMEG for Red Dwarf on Netflix or I’d be sectioned.

    @Spaceman I still think you’re a new Zealand property developer, please write Underdunn on a post-it note and photograph it stuck to the bar of a British pub to prove otherwise.

    Welcome to the state that we here in the Czech Republic have been experiencing for about a week. You will get soon used to it.

    We found out yesterday that our final exams at school will be postponed or maybe cancelled at all. The situation is becoming more and more interesting.

    Similar thing happened with me and the test I was supposed to take for my electrician's certification, apparently they're just going to give it to us now.

    This entire lock down issue, is kinda understandable, but it all smells a bit to much of Orwell and 1984 for my liking. As you know, I'm all for individual rights and free speech, and this rubs me up the wrong way

    Right? And what exactly is the reason for keeping people inside? What do you think is going on whilst we are in lockdown?
    You stupid man.

    I know what's going on and why the government is doing it, which is kind of ironic for a party that preaches small government. I just am not particularly in favour of the principal of the government having so much control of the individual, but, like I said, I can understand why they are doing it

    So what is the point of your post? You’re against it but understand it?! What are you on about. Develop your argument

    I see your point, but they're not doing it to have all the power. They're doing it to deal with this difficult situation.

    He understands that, he just popped by to tell us he doesn't like the fact the government are doing the only thing they can do in this situation, even though he understands why they are they are doing it.

    I don't need to, I've said it several times, I dissaprove of governmental overcontrol. It may be essential, it doesn't mean I have to change my opinion of it

    A deeply confused @neilold dissaproves of something he considers essential.

    "They can do it now during the pandemic!" he raged, before violently shaking his fist. "But they better not do it any other time!"

    The forum was grateful for his contribution to the subject, during this difficult period.
