"A family from Kent who shared a video of their living room performance of a lockdown-themed adaptation of a Les Misérables song have become a sensation online. Ben and Danielle Marsh and their four children changed the lyrics of One Day More to reflect common complaints during the Covid-19 lockdown. They say the video, which has gone viral, was intended to give friends and family a laugh during this stressful time" (Guardian News - YouTube)

“How can we possibly suppress the virus if we don’t know where it is?”— PoliticsJOE (@PoliticsJOE_UK) March 24, 2020
Former health secretary Jeremy Hunt condemns the government's mismanagement of coronavirus testing. #CoronavirusLockdown pic.twitter.com/zd4jMmfkLr
Vision, having sight of the problem, is vital in order to solve it. Jeremy Hunt cites other countries who have got control of their outbreaks with intensive testing and contact tracing. Let's hope the government understands this message and acts on it.

This is Roo the pig's interpretation of Christopher Isherwood's "I Am a Camera". It's quite fantastic.

Blowing their own trumpets,
Playing silly buglers, monotonous
"Does my bulb look big in this" bimbos.
Oh but we love them, we love them senseless
Because we know they're better than us.
For avoidance of all doubt,
daffodils are lovely, hapless
horse-like, handsome flowers.
I apologise to daffodils,
they cannot help themselves,
it's the way they're brought up.

If I ever met Jurgen Klopp I’d say “omg if we have a baby we should call it Klipp” just so he’d raise an eyebrow at me and tell me I’m a moron and I’d be so naked by the time he’d finished doing that.— Laura Lexx (@lauralexx) March 13, 2020

To have quality time they can share,
The way trees go to ground in winter
And turn their roots up in the air.
I like the way redundant leaves
Gather on corners to shoot the breeze,
As the moon becomes a paper lantern,
A holy host or a Camembert.
I like it when someone says good night
And the other says just the same,
And forgetting the cares of the evening,
They sleep till the birds sing again.
