I've had an idea. One of the reasons that it is permitted to leave home is to buy a newspaper. So instead of my usual mile and a half walk for my Saturday paper I'm going to do that by car, and take a roundabout route home.

Just tell the cops you got lost as you tell *them* to get lost.

You are only to drive to go for food or medication, attend to someone who needs help or have an exercise session, as long as you drive less than the time you exercise. Other than that you are breaking the law.
Leave the car on the drive at home and put it on the charger if the battery goes flat.
So we know who to blame for spreading this virus around. STAY AT HOME, SAVE THE NHS AND SAVE LIVES.

I see your forum name is based on a mythical giant with a hundred eyes, the all seeing one.
Pity you cannot use such foresight to obey your very soft and lenient UK lock down rules.
I could tell you a sad true story about a person who thought that this was a game but I doubt you would SEE the point. :shock:
It would make your battery, and that of many others, seem a little irrelevant.
Have a nice drive in the country.
