You must do what think best MP, and I'll go out and and enjoy a meal. You did mention that eating out is not something you would do anyway. I always weigh up the risk before doing something and will obey the current rules, but I will not be intimidated by the media like so many have....

You should take the risk of catching the virus seriously, otherwise you could end up getting it and costing the NHS money that could be put to better use.

Hell MP, the cost to the NHS would be the last thing I would think about if I caught the virus. My life is the most important thing to me.......

Hi

You can eat out safely.

Guy and I would never dream of going out into town on an evening or to a Weatherspoons at the moment.

We are both in and out of Hospital.

We do have some nice local places where you can safely go to and eat outside.

Family owned, socially distanced and in the fresh air.

A nice trip out .

Re: Eat out to Help out.

All things considered the only eating out we'll be doing is taking a small but well packed picnic hamper somewhere picturesque and relatively quite.
I'm still not comfortable with eateries yet, anyway all the protective measures just seem to take the gloss off the experience as far as I'm concerned although I fully appreciate the need for them. We shall be giving it a miss.

Thanks for your concern Monkey.....
However; It's a good job the brave and heroic Doctors and Nurses don't take your attitude Monkey. The NHS will still be around when I'm long gone, and my passing will have about as much impression on them as a fart in a gale....

Re: Eat out to Help out.

When it came to treating patients at the height of the crisis, the NHS staff had hard decisions to make. Younger people were apparently first in the queue.

That's really interesting. Can you source some kind of statistical evidence so that we can look further into this?
