Saw on tv news how France closed it's border with the UK and over 50 countries are not letting planes from the UK land because of covid .One of my British neighbors was shocked & awed the Eurostar train isn't running .I loved THE TUNNEL about Dover but on the news tonite saw how that exciting manic city is shut down .I pity the truckers trapped in their vehicles .How are they eating , going to the bathroom, stretching out ?
Who could have ever predicted this ?
You are not alone .The EU and Canada won't let Americans in and I am what amounts to a prisoner here in Manila since they aren't letting non Filipino's back in if they leave .
We will all have stories to tell abut life during the covid pandemic and with those now trapped truckers am sure involving salty language
Hello to you too Moi. Had to laugh we are about as big as a penal colony We're a small island and these days are cities are bulging, so no surprise that it's been hard to rid this country of this pandemic. I understand the feeling of other nations not wanting people from UK coming into their countries at the moment with this new strain, they're looking out for their own. Sorry you are a prisoner too, by saying that you just answered a question I asked in your other thread.
There is a lot to be said for being part of a group, and the support and friendship that is gained from this.
I feel so sorry for those poor lorry drivers, stuck in their lorries - like so many other professions they're really essential workers and should be treated with humanity & respect. I appreciate it's not within our control that France have stopped freight from crossing the channel, but I do hope some charity/organisation is trying to give them some food supplies & temporary toilets!
I hope no survival of the fittest mentality takes over with everyone looking out for themselves not caring about others
I saw a movie set in the UK called NO BLADE OF GRASS about an ecological disaster ravaging the whole country with everyone robbing & killing each other to survive .Was that a prediction of what will happen now ?
Everybody should be careful since this can turn people into savages like in that movie . As nice as everyone here seems I wud still warn Bellatrix not to let Jazzy visit especially if she comes with empty bags to take things away , vwcamper fan be careful when anyone asks questions about how much food you have in your pantry etc .
My cousin told me last spring in the USA there was a run on paper towels & toilet paper , stock up while you can !!!!!
