Not sure what planet some are living on. I am aged 76 so self isolating from other people but that does not mean that I can't spend 2 or 3 hours each day walking in the countryside and wildlife reserves as I always have done. Once a week on Saturday at 0800 I do a weekly Tesco shop complete with mask and gloves and handgel. I have always shopped at that time so apart from PPE no difference. In the afternoons I am doing a bit of gardening but mostly watching sport as I always have. Lockdown has made virtually no difference to my lifestyle at all. Why is that supposed to be bad for my mental health? I am far too busy to worry about other people.
Entirely agree with your post. Some on here seem to think that if you're over 60 then life is not worth living or saving. A day of anyone's life is worth saving and in a lot of cases it would have been easy to achieve.

Mental health issues are more likely to effect the young as their lives are being restricted more than what the very old are. Theres a large number of old folk to which lockdowns make virtually nil difference as they dont go anywhere much anyway. Equally if you look at it from a financial point of view its the young who are being hit whereas the old are still getting an inflation matching pension rise next year and have suffered zero moneywise. We certainly arent all in it together.
That's not true is it. The young are generally carrying on as if there's no covid.

I love the way older folks generalise about the young. I suppose its easier than admitting that they are having their futures ruined to protect them.
Duffys 18.56 post is a total disgrace and Charlies following one isnt much better.
Where do I sign up to the class lessons?
