I think it is numbers The sheer volume of people and the size of the supermarkets in the UK You would have to have an enormous amount of security staff to control it The supermarkets in PP are small and so is the population

They are trying to set aside certain times for elderly disabled health workers etc here and they do have limits on what can be bought as well

We shopped today in the small seaside town where we have a Caravan Very few shortages no long queues and the checkout operator told a lady where she could get some toilet rolls !!

The U.K.government and large companies seem to be afraid of the P.C./SNOWFLAKE brigades. It appears that the fear of upsetting the minority is more important than pleasing/serving the majority.

No doubt I have now raised some hackles, grow up!

Sorry, Sorry......

Vocal and noisy minority.

It’s time the silent majority made its voice heard.

I 100% agree with you. I think the government is frightened in case some people are upset😡 They need to act NOW and try to do something positive to slow down / halt this. We were sickened yesterday at seeing groups of children out playing in swing parks and groups of teenagers out and about The news about Skegness.......and lots of other places I'm sure......being full of visitors is very worrying indeed. When is it going to sink into a lot of narrow minded people that this is serious and they need to live by the rule book.

This made me smile! I live by the beach and National Trust land. It has been heaving today by us like a Bank Holiday.

I wish it was the same here in the UK. There seems to have been an invasion of caravaners into Scotland this weekend. i drove to my local chemist to pick up my usual meds and glanced down onto the M74 and every fifth vehicle seemed to be a caravan!

I wish with all my heart that the deniers would take this situation seriously .

Believe me being on full lock down is not easy but it's better than the chaos i am seeing and hearing about in the UK .

So true Sparky - the crowds shown on tv yesterday going to the Dales, the seaside etc - reminded me of mindless lemmings. Things change so quickly and UK should be following the example of other European countries - we have seen what has happened and have the opportunity to take drastic action now - I am sure this will happen but maybe a bit too late. Nobody wants to be confined especially in this beautiful spring weather - but the alternative is so much worse. That is just my opinion for what its worth - and now I've just remembered that I said I would keep my mouth shut in future Oh well.

The ajuntament of Pollensa have enlisted the help of gardeners, farmers and winegrowers to go around the streets on their tractors spraying disinfectant, one drove down my road just after the 8pm salute, well done .
