  • They clapped on Thursday though.

  • People watch Mrs brown's night in.

    It's maddening.

  • mespilus' knowledge of our industrial-chemical heritage is quite something. :)

  • Treated pine logs. Great for smoking your brisket with.

  • Well done.
    It's surprising how many businesses are (purposefully) ignorant of the Clean Air Act
    and the fact that all London Boroughs are Smoke-free zones.

  • Do you have a garden?

    Edit: wasnt meant for your specifically. Just a general rhetorical question for people offended by others being in the park.

  • No, but current events make us wish we did!

    We have Blackheath and Greenwich park literally right outside our front door so no shortage of outside space. It's a big change to our lifestyle to be spending so little time outside. I reckon we've averaged 30 minutes outside each day over the last two weeks or so.

  • Edited just when you responded!

  • No worries.

    I'd have traded a kidney for a garden to have a bbq and a beer today. Totally understand that the park is all that some people have.

    I'm not offended by seeing people in the park. The vast majority of people i saw today were doing their best to distance themselves. Its just frustrating to see so many people who haven't clicked that they should be limiting time outside to an absolute bare minimum and clearly are not.

    I appreciate the guidelines are vague and a household sitting on the grass for a couple of hours isn't an issue. I do worry it becomes more of an issue when you have 500 households sitting on the grass, even if there is theoretically 2m between them.

  • It was a brilliant answer mate. Definitely informative. My Dad used to paint all the fences and multiple sheds with old sump oil. It's a very effective preservative, also, I assume fecking dangerous.

  • Didn't everyone's dad use old oil? To be fair I can't imagine it's much/any worse than creosote given that its a mix of distilled tars from my understanding

  • Queensland's new cases yesterday went down to single digits, terrific news... The numbers have been going down gradually but dropped very sharply over the weekend, hope that isn't an aberration...

  • The weekend anomaly ... That's probably down to less tests being taken processed or whatever.

  • My first thought but numbers have remained steady over previous weekends, that's a huge drop... We'll see tomorrow, I guess...

    I noticed a headline splashed on the front of the local Murdoch rag telling everyone the recent measures are already yielding results... Obvs can't believe anything that comes out of that guy's organisation but...

  • Greenwich park is the worst I've seen (within running distance of deptford) for complete failure of social distancing, I've had to stop going there because of all the groups of clearly different families hanging out & having a chat, blocking all the crossings.

  • Did @tynan write that?

    Strange, I thought Greenwich Park was pretty quiet yesterday, particularly given the nice weather. It was largely dog-walkers, joggers and parents with very young children. Nowhere near as busy as you would normally expect.

    Interestingly, the Police were stopping people parking on the roads around the Park, which suggests the problem is not locals (who by and large love and respect the Park), but people who drive in from out of the area.

  • Driving to a park thats SO well connected with public transport is the most cunty thing to do in London.

    that and babyccinos

  • normally, sure. but I can understand wanting to avoid public transport right now, if you can...

  • Perhaps the police sorted it yesterday then (I didn't go that way yesterday) - it's been ridiculous for the last week & a half though!

  • Matt Hancock says its unbelievable that people are not following the rules.

    I am genuinely impressed about how such a simple message can be bungled so badly.

    The lack od awareness required to not realise that other countries near to us have tried gentle guidelines and found that they do not work is staggering.

  • This one of the few areas of expertise or knowledge that I can share with the forum.

    Yes thanks for educating us. I´ve chucked the occasional chunk of MDF and plywood into the (red hot) stove. Will mend my ways.

    Regarding the tanalised stuff, we are talking about the green stock no? I only know it by the Finnish term painekyllästetty, which means pressure impregnated. From what I´ve heard they burn it in a power station in Germany, at least the stuff collected in Finland. What sorts of temperatures are we talking about?
