Lockdown or Partial Lockdown - An Inevitable Consequence
Following the Prime Minister's statement on further measures to combat the spread of Covid-19, there will be many who welcome what now amounts to the complete shutdown of normal life in the United Kingdom.
We support the actions the PM has taken and believe he has taken them reluctantly
That reluctance is not however, due to indecision or any inability on the part of Boris Johnson himself, as some have suggested.
It is because the PM has steadfastly stood by a commitment to freedom and liberty, alongside a hope that the vast majority of people would use some common sense and act accordingly. Whilst many have done so, there are also significant numbers, very high numbers, whose behaviour has been truly reprehensible.
It is to these stupid, unthinking, selfish and wretched little people any criticism must be delivered.
It is because of their actions the Prime Minister has had to take the steps he has.
Every single panic-buyer, every single party-goer, every single one of you who has blundered about, refusing to heed simple, straightforward advice, has turned a serious health concern into a national emergency.
You should be ashamed of yourselves.
The Prime Minister's full statement can be read under 'News Commentary'.

Reader's Remarks on Heathrow Airport 70 Years and Counting:
Kevan James has knitted his own personal reflections and experiences into what could otherwise have been a considerably less compelling narrative, had it been purely historical. His personal anecdotes, experiences and reflections throughout the book make it a compelling read for anybody who has known and experienced Heathrow in any capacity.
(Paul S. London, UK)
This is a well-written and interesting account of Heathrow’s history – the most interesting airport in Britain. It’s good to know where it came from and what happened there, and to reflect on what goes on behind the scenes, and where it might be going in the future.
(Matt Falcus, The Airport Spotting Blog - http://www.airportspotting.com/)
The heart and soul of the world's most iconic airport
Eloquent writing and full of interesting facts

Books have always been a part of life and even today, they are still.
The printed book, and for that matter magazines and newspapers, face a challenging time in the face of the digital onslaught but there is nothing like a book; a tangible thing that one can hold, feel, and yes, love also.
The digital version is a flimsy on-screen nothing, swiped away with the flick of a finger, deleted when done with.
A book may last more than a lifetime.
