When you see all the panicking going on in stores and supermarkets, it makes you wonder how some today would have coped during the period of the second world war and the ten years or so period after the war when there was food rationing, a benefit system which was nothing like it is today, a health service in its infancy with nothing like equipment it has today together with extreme poverty and a real shortage of housing as a result of all the bombing.

The problem for the majority today is that have never experience hard times, only the good life!

Spot on. Even if we go into lockdown supermarkets will remain open. We haven’t panic bought anything. I think it’s bloody ridiculous, you see videos on social media of queues going out the entrance drive of shops.

Unfortunately me and my wife are both out there on the front line and at risk of infection. It’s an uncertain, uneasy and worrying time for us. I’m particularly at risk with suffering from asthma, albeit mild.

We need that community spirit back, the type that got us through hard times such as WW2. But we’ve got this “I’m for me and f*** everyone else” attitude. Hence people bulk buying ridiculous amounts of toilet roll with no consideration for anyone else.

Where did this toilet roll thing start? I can understand people maybe buying a little extra food just in case they have to isolate but i can not think of any reason why a stock of toilet rolls should be a high priority. On average i use 2 toilet rolls a week so unless this virus gives you the runs which it does not except in rare cases then i see no reason that anybody should need to be stocking up on months worth of toilet rolls.

I think we can expect a baby boom if the country goes into lockdown for a few weeks.

Yes. They will forever be known as the 'Coronials'.
In 2034 they will also be reffered to as the 'Quaranteens'.

And a lot of divorce as well - it'll be like Christmas on steroids but without the ability to escape somewhere on Boxing Day with your Christmas jumper.
