After three months, we are slowly emerging from lock-down. The best advice is generally one’s own as it is difficult to understand what the government is talking about.

Posters in support of key workers in windows and on walls, hand written protests, letters pointing out the difference between the average pay of a nurse and MPs. Thank you’s and solidarity. Some interesting changes.

One of the images shows what appear to be Anderson shelters. They were a low-spec technology. Made of corrugated iron they were obviously only useful to people who had gardens. But they were apparently effective if buried and with a good layer of top soil thrown over them.

And what’s been most effective over the past three months? Government campaigns? Instructions from the Prime Minister and his ‘special advisor(s)’? Or hand written signs -often by kids – in hundreds of thousands of homes, offices, shops, restaurants and workplaces?
