Is it just me but the more this incompetent shower of a government tells (orders) me to do the less likely I am to obey.
With the possibility of £10,000 fines I certainly will not be downloading the track and trace app when it’s released. The probability of being near to someone in passing ie in a supermarket without my own health being compromised is probably quite high. I don’t intend to self isolate should this be the case and will not leave myself open to huge fines when I go out for my daily exercise.
Neither will I allow myself to be track and traced via my mobile. Any contact number given out will be for a very old PAYG phone which has no connection to myself or my address. Additionally it will never be turned on.
I think that it’s about time we realised that we have to live with this virus, it’s not going away anytime soon. Give huge support to those who want to shield and let the rest of us move on before we have no recognisable society to return to.

It seems that if you don't have the test done through Serco, but an NHS hospital or site, then you can't enter the result into the app. Users are also reporting their frustration that the app will only accept positive results, not negative ones, which is rather going to skew the stats?

Trafalgar Square anti-lockdown demonstration turns violent as bottles thrown at police

Listening to coverage of Trafalgar Square yesterday, I just couldn’t understand why people who simply have concerns about the legality of the restrictions, who acknowledge the seriousness of the virus but disagree with the process, would align themselves with fruitcakes and conspiracy theorists who deny its existence.
Such a demonstration was bound to end badly.
