RT @ProfBrianCox: Brexit is a self-indulgence from another age. It should be shelved for an indefinite period until we have dealt with the long-term economic and social fall out of COVID-19. There can be no justification for imposing a second, voluntary shock on the country in early 2021. https://t.co/W8rpP00ogO
RT @NHSMillion: NHS staff are rightly getting a lot of praise right now, but we know there are millions of others who are also working hard right now Please spare a RT for all the carers, police officers, fire fighters, teachers, shop workers, delivery workers, transport workers and many more https://t.co/HmIGUwwf12

They want to share with you their tips to hopefully brighten up your day. First up, a dance challenge from @MAWood33! 🕺 #StayHomeSaveLives #StayInWorkOut https://t.co/Io3Mz3IW3R
All of this spot on. Of course the PM gets tested and hopefully is healthy soon. He is a key worker. But there are thousands of NHS key workers and others who can't get tested - and that is a scandal
Yes, the person running the country should get tested. Yes, many more people should get tested, especially NHS staff. No, it’s not right to wish ill-health on anybody.
RT @RMCunliffe: Have come back from my daily permitted (and advised) run to find that police forces are now shaming people for going to remote areas to walk, which are clearly safer than residential streets. This lockdown is necessary, and people understand that. Creeping authoritarianism is not
This is big. Looks like the Mayor using the police to stop workers getting on the tube. Workers that Boris Johnson says can still go to work, like builders. Who is right?
Silly question. It’s not how far you run but remaining isolated from contact with others while you do so. Similarly a short early morning and evening walk for fresh air and exercise is better than one long walk in middle of day where you encounter other people.
And I only bought a few items in the shop as another important message is not to bulk buy. But that means I have to go back sooner. And others are shouting ‘don’t go out’. How does this resolve itself? Most importantly we need 2m queueing in every shop. Will Govt deliver?
To give a personal example I went for a run early this morning and was never within 2m of anyone. Made me feel so much better too. Then went to supermarket & was impossible not to be close to many. If they close some parks. Those left are busier. Doh
Every single supermarket in Britain has had people mingling closer together today than in parks and outdoors. The barbers are all open as another example. It is such a mess. Contradictory and poorly explained advice. They have to get a grip ASAP
