Ok, re the boat holiday: if you get taken ill when on this holiday you are adding to the NHS load in an area you are not expected to be in, extra admin for GPs who are on the raggedy edge as it is to say nothing of paramedics who have to locate a boat in the middle of lord knows where should you require their services.
It’s not all about what you want.
Re rationing: the COBRA meetings include behavioural psychologist who advise on how best to get the message across. Do you think admitting to plans for rationing would increase or decrease panic buying? What about civil unrest? Looting? I could go on.
FFS have some common sense peeps, the nation is being informed on a need to know basis because the idiots cannot be relied upon to do the right thing as it is, leave alone with the worst case scenario.
When the first reports of this virus in far away China made the news, that’s when I started to buy a few extra tins, pasta, flour so no need to panic buy now. I never considered bog roll though!!
