Even in September they are talking about Schools applying social distancing rules, that means schools cannot function how they have been in the past, not enough rooms, teachers.  Going to be interesting times.

If pubs are going to be a thing of the past for a long time then so are the 4 bars at my rugby club.

BBC news are so negative - hardly any pictures/details of people recovering from the Virus.

I would like to see daily figures for those leaving intensive care - be positive.

Technically speaking Raider they should be negative

Christ who is their right mind would now want to go to  the pub with their family. You have had 6 weeks worth in 4 walls, you want to get out, meet friends not go the the pub and have a bottle and chat with the family. Everybody been doing that for the last few weeks!LOL

I've totally given up on BBC News - they constantly run stories on the 4/5% who are unhappy,not the 94/95% who therefore are happy.

Yes I totally agree - also they seem to concentrate almost exclusively on interviewing minority groups rather than being representative of the public at large.

Also having been off for 6 weeks I can't help but notice the vast numbers of people who appear for a couple of minutes during news programmes. I'm sure these people aren't on minimum wage so it should be easy for them to cost cut to protect over 75s free licences

French Connections, I'm amazed that you are so surprised that so many in France disagree with their Government when when the only word you need to communicate in their language is "NON". For the sake of clarification - this is not being cloudberry, just long time observation of my dear, near, neighbours.

LOL  You're not wrong in a sense - the French certainly seem to have something inbuilt which makes them disagree with virtually everything that the government says. However all our friends and relatives here whom we talk to on Skype etc do nothing but moan about the severity of the lockdown and talk about how they can't wait for it to be over - and that's why I was a little surprised about the general opinion. Then again, we have hardly any cases in our region so not many people have any direct knowledge of it's devastating effects and that probably explains it.

I was speaking to my Godson, who 'was' a theatre technician (surgical, not plays) and he was redeployed to ICU. He said that in the first 3 weeks only 1 person left to go back to a ward. Many others left.
I am pleased to say that the whole country has come a long way since then and they are learning more and more about how to treat this horrible illness. The survival rate in ICU is a lot higher now and hopefully soon this will just be a bad memory.....a long way to go first...fingers crossed.

There is already much unrest and other countries haven’t just laid down and accepted it, there has been major civil unrest in France and Italy. The government have already admitted there is concern about civil unrest here. 
That said I agree with the Premiership just writing their season off. As well as my Championship team I have a season ticket to a Premiership club that I have already paid for this season and am paying (for next season) a considerable amount of money for per month. I would rather the season was just shut down because it’s all getting a little bit silly now. Just get on with next season already. I’m still living in hope that next season might go ahead, albeit a little late but better late than never. 

Can you point out any source of information of this major unrest in Italy and France please?

Those articles are just staggeringly inaccurate and just total scaremongering of the sort that others have mentioned here. Of course the virus has hit the poorest in France just like in the UK and everywhere else. The increasing inequality in all societies has made it that way all over the world. In any crisis it's always the poor that pay the heaviest price and it's been ever so. The only way to change that is to reduce inequality but unfortunately in the west it's been increasing pretty rapidly since the 80s.
Regarding the 'riots' in the suburbs of Paris etc, unfortunately that happens pretty much all the time and has not really changed with the current situation. It's also a tiny number of people involved. There are real problems there though and the French made a right mess of things in the 60s by creating huge ghettos of immigrants where unemployment and poverty is rampant. The issue the article talks about was on the news and is a story we've seen loads of times - a young kid on a motorcycle was being chased by the police, fell off trying to evade them, and then all his mates watching use that as an excuse to burn a load of cars and set off fireworks. In the summer it's a weekly event. The kid involved was  interviewed on TV from hospital admitting he was in the wrong and pleading with the 'rioters' to stop. 
It has absolutely nothing to do with the virus though.

I have never attempted to defend the French attitude or mentality in any way. What on earth the Gilets Jaune last year have to do with this is beyond me.
All a bit silly for sure

Totally agree with you FC with individual posters now expressing views on the BBC & EU. Anyone would think it was a political website rather than a rugby forum.
