If a player is 'really unhappy' at a club then why don't they just put in a transfer request? Surely it is within their 'human rights' to do so.

Sunak said it will be safe to go shopping tomorrow. It isn't safe. If you wear a face covering and keep to the social distancing rule then you will minimise your individual risk of infection. That isn't the same as being 100% safe.

Each individual must decide for themselves how much risk to take.

A significant contributory reason for the high UK figures is due to England being overpopulated and far too many people living in densely packed urban areas. Maybe our farmers should give up some of their wasted land (grazing sheep) to allow a more even population spread?

The post-apocalyptic feel of our town centre is both sad and disturbing. The beginning of June as a reopen target might be too late for many small businesses. There doesn't appear to have been any local spikes of infection from our ever open supermarkets, so why are our town centre shops still closed?

2 metre distancing on public transport is obviously impossible. Reducing down to 1 metre and making face coverings compulsory is imo the only possible solution. Buses, trains, tubes etc will need to limit the number of passengers they carry at any one time (good luck with that!).
