I feel this Coronavirus situation is just about to turn really ugly, anyone else think the same?
Army and police should all carry tasers, and anyone caught breaking into a shop, food truck,home food delivery van etc should be tasered and if they die from being tasered so be it.
Is the above a bit harsh, but how else do you teach scum of the earth a lesson in this time of crisis??

No. I think things will sink in.

You have to remember although the virus is very very serious we are only one day 2 or 3 of proper social distancing. People will adapt, I don't think there is appetite for public disorder, people are scared and fear drives people to do less rational things, people are not looking for trouble.

Remember there are an awful lot of people who will have been in the vicinity of others who had the virus and they don't have the symptoms because despite all this it is still quite hard for virus' to spread - its even harder for them to spread when we don't sneeze/ cough etc. Look at how many people the underground in London shifts each every day and relative to that how few cases there have been.

We will get on top of it.

I want to be positive but unless the entire nation grasp the seriousness of this invisible killer, a few will take actions none of us want to see whatever that might be. Witness the folk who were trying to imitate NHS workers today and trying to shop during NHS staff and older people early hour shopping. They just don’t get it, so will they understand and abide by tonight’s clampdown??

Innovation and tech in action at Cereals LIVE


There is nothing quite like seeing tech in action to understand how it works and how it can be beneficial on farm, which is why Cereals LIVE will be putting demos right at growers’ fingertips.

From state-of-the-art robotics, to autonomous tractors and electronic weeding, Cereals LIVE will have it all available in video demonstrations in the brand new Innovation and Tech Demo ring, says event director, Alli McEntyre. “It’s a brave new world for farming, with innovation driving sustainability and efficiency. Being able to see the most cutting-edge technology in action will give farmers an insight into where their businesses could be headed very soon.”

So what will growers be...
