You can add Sam Smith to the list too. Considering some people are losing their jobs, waiting for Govt help to live, have family in hospital,etc; being self isolated in a £12 million home comes across as quite self indulgent.

Oxford City Council garden waste recycling dept

non key workers told to stay at home

one good way to exercise, of course, do an hour or so in the garden (should you have a garden!)

in their wisdom Oxford City Council have suspended fortnightly garden waste collections , at a time when there's likely to be more garden waste than usual .... bizarre decision, as fortnightly landfill and recycling collections and weekly food waste collections are continuing as per usual

They can't do that in Bicester thankfully, we have brown bins which are for both garden and food compostable waste. Once again random recycling rules causing issues...

Recyling ( which Oxford City Council - in non CV19 times- is one of the best local Councils for recycling) should be standardised across at least England, if not the entire UK

though at the moment its not going to be anywhere near the top of any 'to do' agenda by those in a position to standardise waste/ recyle , for obvious reasons

Queue jumpers like Prince Charles.
Out on a limb here maybe but I disagree on this one. Firstly he is in the target group (unlike say arteta, Idris Elba, Portsmouth FC etc) and secondly, whether you are a royalist or not (and I am no fan much of the recent shenigins) I think an exception can be made for the heir to the throne.

Maybe we can agree on a short list of national treasures that should get priority - I'll start with David Attenborough

Workshy drivers on London underground. Sadiq Khan has IMO, been wrongly criticised for cancelling trains causing the mass overcrowding. The trouble is with 30% of staff off 'sick' who's going to drive the trains?

Of the 30% who are off 'sick' I do wonder how genuine they are. "Sorry boss I've got a bit of a sniffle, so I'm going to self isolate (binge watch Game of Thrones with a beer) for 14 days)". Sure some of those sicknesses may well be genuine, and if you are showing symptoms, then yes you should self isolate - but I bet a good few of them are using this to have a fortnight off work.

If you are "Person A" in your household its only 7 days.
"Person B", in our case Mrs EY, gets 14 days.

I bet lots of workshy shysters are ensuring they are "Person B".

Add in the likes of George Soros, Warren Buffet who have suddenly gone very quiet. When so many are giving what they can to help people, these people have disappeared off of the face of the earth it seems.

And those stupid celebs who that cringe Imagine sing along :sick:
