    I expect a pretty noticeable ramp up in traffic the next three Mondays. I reckon the AA (the driving one) will be busy with some cars having been idle for three months.

    Theoretically good, but I wonder how this will be managed. Social distancing of two metres - all round - means a fraction of the available space. How do we get to the bar or lav? With two-metre gradations? And as soon as it starts raining, then what - get soaked or go home, because we won't be allowed in. Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see how they will manage it.

    Downing Street plays down reports it is poised to ease coronavirus restrictions "Beer gardens in England will not be allowed to open before the end of the month, Downing Street has said, quashing suggestions that ministers were considering allowing pubs to serve beer outside from 22 June."

    ...so it's almost certain to happen, then.

    They allowed it to build up as this has been trailed in the broadsheets for a few days, they could have squashed it then. So who knows. Everything's being made up on the hoof now; there's no pretence of a sensible, level-headed roadmap. Lockdown in Reading is basically over based on my shopping trip this morning - "if Cummings and the Bonking Boffin ignored it, then why should anyone else adhere to it" (self-defeating, but understandable)

    Whatever your political colourings, you'd be hard-pressed to find a normal person who would disagree that the management of this crisis over the last few weeks has been shambolic.
