    This is the biggest theat to this country and its people since world war 2. Obey the rules and save your family and friends. We came out of the war stronger and better. We will beat this virus if everybody does their duty.

    Reactive rather then proactive: the government has failed. They're just lucky Labour are un-electible.

    3 days in and they are now going to fine and arrest people for being out of their homes. I don’t want Coronavirus to spread. But I’m very uneasy with this. We must be cautious, our grandparents generation fought the Second World War so we could be free. If the price of that freedom means possibly becoming ill. Isn’t that a price worth paying? Just a thought.

    I had an appointment at the hospital in Wolverhampton and over half of the staff are not even waring masks! What's the point of a country wide lockdown if hospital staff are not even using the most basic of equipment? In fact half of them were looking at me like I'm an idiot for doing so. What's that about?

    He's very unaffordable political. Only 2 weeks ago he was considering a total different approach, in spite of what other Countries were experiencing yet. "Herd immunity"? Where is now? More of the UK Population were asking more concrete actions, but to the Gov. everything seemed "normal". Shame. Inadequate.

    Words, words, words, Bullshits! To late reaction from BJ. Just one week ago, when most of European countries were closed - he did not do anything. Pubs, bars, restaurants, parks - all was opened for the virus. Now "safe our NHS". How to safe? We have to die at homes or what, do not disturb that NHS. We should not even call to 111 or GP if we are sick. Of course - The PRince will be tested with mild symptoms only, why not. And he and The Queen has private doctors, parks etc.

    What about that millions workers who works as self employed, by agencies or zero hour contracts. Who have to pay rents, bills and have credits, but no income. What about them? What about these people who are with rents in shared house and can not take housing benefits. What about these non-English people, who works here, pay taxes and insurance but cant take Universal credit? What about these poor people with loans, credit cards etc.? They are millions.
    And what about Brexit? Do you see what will happens if the EU closes their borders for flies, transport etc.? Will wait for Trump to decide to give us something? Yeah but he closed USA borders for English too...

    I think the politicians must be cleverest people from whole country.... But now I am not sure about that...

    Coronavirus is no more Serious than any common flu. It is just cover up for world financial economy tearing apart.
    It is to distract people’s minds from the real problem and as we see stupid and narrow-minded people bought this story perfectly. What can be better than constant panic of a government spreading fear in the world?
    reading all these idiotic shallow comments ask a question how long primitive human creature gonna let others in power to manipulate them?
    Don’t you all have your brain to think?
    STOP Repeating this corona virus bullshit!
    Nobody is dying you stupid cowards!
    You have more death for
    Normal flu!

    BJ 2 weeks ago: No problem, go to pub, bar, cinema, parks and beaches. I need more time to see what will happens.
    1 week ago: lets shut down the schools, but for pubs, bars and streets and parks - no problem. You still can affect other people, until wait our NHS be ready for the virus. Of course we will send The Queen outside of London with best medic care, but you can walk, shopping, go for a drink in pub, no problem.
    3 days ago: If you have symptoms - just stay at home. DO NOT CALL 111, DO NOT CALL GP and DO NOT GO TO THE HOSPITAL. Just stay at home. If after a week you do not feel better - you can call 111 and we will tell you to stay at home. We do not need to test you, treat you or whatever, just stay at home.

    The government will give money for the business, for employed etc., but if you are self employed - you must save yourself alone. If you are at part time or zero hour contract - you can get only 75pw (the maximum of job seeker allowance), probably Universal credit and house benefit, after 5 weeks but you have to pay for rent, bills and credits even you are without any work or payments. Millions of people are like this.
    We wont test you unless you have severe symptoms, but of course we will test The Prince with mild and light symptoms. Because he is more important then you are.

    Words, words, words... Will see what will be after the virus. Good lAck not so Great Britain

    The EU didn't prevent any nation closing their borders last week. The UK chose to keep ours open.
    The EU didn't prevent any nation imposing lock- downs last week. The UK waited and now introduces watered- down half- measures.
    We never needed Brexit to control our own borders or write our own laws. The Prime Minister and others have been lying about that for decades.
    When this proven and unrepentant habitual liar tells everyone to stay at home, it's hardly surprising that people decline.
    Especially since working is for some the difference between food and starvation.

    The BBC presenter asked if the virus was around sometime before the
    awareness campaigne in January as he had suffed from similar illness in
    january with other reported cases? If this is true the government has
    covered a position of zero trust to negative resign tomorrow territory.
    The tempory chanceller was completely out of his depeth announcing money
    payouts to all political supporters instead of the restoration of
    incomes for the severely disabled blind which were cut illegally by 76%
    and the Un asked for boris to restore immediately. No masks or
    equipement was distributed to front line primary care,blind and disabled
    looked after in the community and health and social care carers for the
    vulnerable. No food deliveries have yet been arranged for the
    vulnerable in the community by the now unemployed taxis services.

    Just how long does Boris think majority minority London will stay on lockdown for, before the riots begin, a week? Remember this is the capital city created by mass immigration and taught by our state schools to hate the white man as a colonialist oppressor, why should they do what is asked of them when the schools have taught them for two generations to despise the majority population who took them in (read: Britain's Great Immigration Disaster by G. Cooke). This lawless metropolis is a powder keg seething with hatred, stoked by an Islamist mayor and policed by huge numbers of "diverse" officers who, this time, will have more sympathy with those who take to the streets to revolt than the law abiding majority who live outside Britain's immigrant majority cities. As you sow so shall ye reap and the mass immigration whirlwind is about to blow.
