Royal update 1 - we're all in this together, well sort of.

It was great to hear the Queen telling us, a week ago, that she and her family stand ready to play their part during this crisis. Maybe I've got this wrong but they seem to be just looking after themselves so far. 

On the 19th March on the Royal Family Twitter feed the Queen announced that she'd arrived at Windsor with Philip. It seems they got there by helicopter. Nice.

Guidance from the Government - issued on Sunday (22nd March) - says: “Essential travel does not include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays.
“People should remain in their primary residence. Not taking these steps puts additional pressure on communities and services that are already at risk.”
Non essential travel to a second home ? Sounds like it. Maybe got the nod before shutters came down ? Or maybe Windsor isn't their second home, perhaps number six or nine ? 

Standing ready though, all of them.
P.S. Bad news for Philip though, the McDonalds, just over the over the road from the Castle is closed to protect the safety of their employees. So no sending a lackey out to get you a midnight snack from there !
P.P.S. According to the Pizza Express website all their UK restaurants are closed for now, including Woking, although that has no relevance here.

More than 50,000 additional deaths and Stanley is flogging a book !! Outrageous

On Sky News this morning we had: Stanley Johnson re-launching his book "The Virus". As the body count mounts (now one of the highest in the world) at the incompetent hands of a government led by his hopeless son Boris, Stanley is now trying to make a few quid out of his book. "It's got a new cover" he chortled. All proceeds to the the NHS ? What do you think ?
