"We’re all in this together" is a joke as we flaunt social distancing rules

The Beagle Editor, It's Monday morning and I'm driving into town to go to the butchers as I've done for years listening to our mayor talk on the radio asking tourists  to seriously think about going to their permanent place of residence due to the strain on our limited resources. Well good luck with that as every second car has Yogi (ACT) plates as she says "we’re all in this together". So into the butcher I go only once again to be confronted by groups of people I've never seen before ordering up like there's no tomorrow and you can see the strain being placed on the staff.How much food can you idiots store for god sake? Driving into town I notice at least 15 people, from tradies to office workers, standing outside a coffee spot all standing within inches of each other with some even touching then across the road are some girls waiting to get into their retail premises who actually hugged. What can you say? "We’re all in this together" is a joke as most of you out there are showing. You're in this as well with your selfish 'who gives a rats backside she’ll be right' actions. Clowns .... and if your not going to take this seriously it will be yours and our downfall. I hear you all pointing the finger and yet most of you are guilty. I go to an automotive workshop to discuss an issue only to find it closed apparently because some absolute idiot who was on the cruise that docked last week and was told to self isolate decided he knew better and now that business has been forced to close temporarily. On the drive home I hear on the local news that there has been an increase in Covid-19 cases in Bega and Eurobodalla shire .... well what would one expect with the reckless UnAustralian I know better attitude that so many are displaying.
