IMO the "staycation" is catching on, never seen so many canoes ( inflatable and rigid), paddle boards, swimmers etc as were on the water today on a short trip to the Locks at Geldeston. Most with sensible crews I'm glad to say.
Now people are being told to quarantine when returning from certain countries. Because they cannot claim sick pay whilst in quarantine they are now whinging that the government should support them in quarantine. Where would the money come from? Yes, you've got it, our taxes.
They had plenty of money to pay for their holiday, they made the choice to travel abroad, nobody forced them to go, now let them pay for their own quarantine and stop whinging. Why should us taxpayers support their stupidity?
People have been cutting their trips abroad short to rush back to avoid having to quarantine. Not giving a damn that they may be bringing the virus back with them and infecting others. All they are interested in is that their lives are not interrupted for a couple of weeks and not the slightest thought that they may be the causing the death of others and possibly destroying families' lives.
No one is being forced to holiday abroad and anyone who does so knows full well the risks involved. As such they have no right to complain when they get back home should they have to quarantine. I have no issue with anyone holidaying abroad in fact I wish more would and make the rivers quieter but please don't moan if things go wrong.
