There were so many walking up and down my road i thought it was paddys day. Wouldn't be so busy on a working day. People really do have the attitude, that the rules are for other people, not for me.

I'm not sure it's as simple as that. People seem to think of themselves as outside of the system. "I went to Tesco and there were ques! Can you believe it?" That example is not sitting outside of the problem, they are part of it. I have yet you meet a person who wasn't, only "going out for a few bits".

But standing in ques should be a great learning experiance for those who espouse Socialism! Thats just part and parcel of living in countries like Soviet Russia Cuba,Venezula,N Korea, E Germany and the like.Stand in a que for four hours for a loaf of BREAD! Not to mind anything else that our somewhat depleted supermarkets might not have,but will have within 72 hours more than likely. Imagine not being able to get toothpaste,or even SOAP for four weeks???And queing up for it for a couple of hours??That was normal life in East Germany,when I went over once as an exchange student in the 1970s fro W Germany.
So get back in the que Comrade,and sTFU about not getting your garlic flavourd buffalo morezzla cheese hand rolled in Ulan Batarr or wherever.

Started reading Gulag Archipelago the other night. Its compulsory reading now in schools in Russia. But it really gives a first hand account of the delights of living in Stalins USSR. One comment out of place about the regime, and its many years of hard slave labour in conditions we could scarcely believe of now. Its also odd, that once a country leaves communism, they seem strangely resistant to undertake it again.

And then for some light reading have a read of "One day in the life of prisioner Ivan Denisovitch",and then "Russias political hospitals" by the same author.

Great concept in Soviet times,anyone who critiqued the Soviet regime was obviously mentally unwell for habouring such thoughts.So off to the Soviet version of the home for the bewilderd you went,to be" cured" by the wonders of Soviet medicine.

Dont think for one moment that under Putins Russia those camps have disappered or the ideas of curing "unwell citizens" has gone either.Ask the former owner of "Gazprom" and some of his directors.Who are enjoying a Russian Govt sponsored vacation of indefinate time,someplace out on the Chinese border with Russia.

Yip, and we wonder WHY our East bloc friends are so pro gun,and groups like FUN was founded by Polish lads?They were born,grew up ,lived under,and had relatives, friends and neighbours "diaspper" at 4AM into the back of police vans and lorries .And we wonder why they are getting rather bolshie with the EU too,and are starting to give it the finger now at every opportunity?They can't understand us in the Western EU ,how we can be so blase ,in handing over our freedoms to Govt at any given opportunity.Even Mikahl Gorbachev himself was puzzled as to why the West want to emulate Socialism at every opportunity.

From what i have seen, the EU is like a drowning man who has just been thrown a concrete block, with this pandemic. Far from uniting the continental european countries, it has them at each others throats.

The Italians are publically burning the eu flag, and i hear that 70% of Italians have a very poor opinion of the bloc now.

I think most of the Anti-EU sentiment was there long before the virus. They were struggling with debt etc. and this virus will only have made things much much worse.

It has to be said though that the Italians did act the boll1x during the early days of the lockdown so they brought a lot of their problems on themselves.

Once a lockdown was mentioned in one area, there was a big scatter to other places which did nothing only spread the virus far and wide.

Because they didnt want to be accused of being "WASCIST!" up in thos progressive areas.Having demos like "hug a Chinaman" and stupid sht like that,or like Peloisi walking around San Fransisco's Chinatown telling people there is no danger and not to be rascist as there is no problem with the Corona virus.

But if you must sally forth,because of vermin control,which is a ligit part of agriculture.Get a written consent from the farmer[s] concerned. Evena text will do confirming that they want you on their lands to control foxes,or whatever needs controlling,and are aware of the risks entailed.At least you have something to back up your claims if you run into the AGS when being out and about. Maybe also in these exceptional times,give the local Div HQ a call and tell them you are going to be out on X farm doing vermin control in wherever addresss ,so in case nerveous ninnies or curtain twitchers are in contact about "terrorists practising shooting" there is no need to send the ERU and ASU units out.

Also this virus can survive apprently over 72 hours on smooth surfaces,and longer on wooden surfaces.So if opening often used farm gates,wear gloves. And pick up,every,last,bit of stuff you might have brought into the farm,like spent shells etc.

We are in strange times and uncharted waters on this folks so err very much on the side of caution if you are going on someone elses property and land. Last thing we neeed now is some farmer going down with this and it is traced back to one of us shooters. That would play havoc with our public image and give the antis a truckload of ammo to fire at us for months after.
Well said Grizzly 45
