How a lockdown should have been managed

Could they have managed that with a fifth of their island being in a different jurisdiction? I don't buy the narrating that the government has handled things well but it's not a like for like comparison, they're far more isolated than we are.

As we are part of the EU, can we even stop other EU citizens from coming here, if we wanted to?
No, but they'd have to SI for 14 days if not on Green List...

Yes, Denmark shut down their borders 

The problem is that we share a land border with the UK and that border will never be closed by us for obvious reasons

All this talk of people coming in to Ireland from the UK,  I've seen people I know heading home for the weekend which is really annoying.

I was in Battersea park and Clapham Common over the weekend.
For a sunny weekend it was fairly quiet compared to normal.

Where is everybody going?
The beaches in the UK? Ireland?   They are definitely going somewhere.

I was over in the lake district on Saturday and it was exceptionally busy, even for the time of year and good weather. 

Trekking with groups of friends has always been popular and it seems to have a new younger audience with people in their 20s and 30s.

I live next to Newcastle racecourse and there are social distancing gigs starting tomorrow night and it'll be interesting to see how how much demand there is for it. It's 2500 people on platforms of up to 5 people who must drive to the venue in the same car. It could be carnage or could be the future until covid-19 is under control. 

I've no interest in going myself but can sit in my back garden and listen to Sam Fender, two door cinema club, supergrass, maximo park and a load more including a few comedians for the next month.
