  1. And we all laughed at how over-the-top it seemed when in Wuhan there reports of the government physically barricading people in their homes.

  2. It’s whether these powers still exist after the quarantine that’s the problem.

  3. mArTiAl lAw oh no the police are policing people whatever shall we do

  4. Important note: Most UK police don’t carry firearms. Only special emergency response teams and those guarding government buildings are armed, as are Northern Irish police.

    Can’t imagine if American cops had the same powers…

  5. Cough in the general direction of a PC and die in a lockup begging for a doctor.

  6. They Police everything in UK except crime.

  7. We have road check points now where we live. Police are checking what folk are upto to c rack down on uncecessary driving about.

  8. ….And it begins. 1st step towards martial law.

  9. American police are reading this like “????? That’s already my job???”

  10. I am so deeply disgusted and disappointed in humanity right now. Literal martial law. Literal tyranny, everywhere.

  11. Income Tax was the first tax in British history to be levied directly on people’s earnings. It was introduced in 1799 by the then Prime Minister William Pitt the Younger, as a temporary measure to cover the cost of the Napoleonic Wars. Yeah “temporary measure” they said….. Funny I’ve been paying for the Napoleonic war all my working life. I’m sure we beat him?

  12. Wouldn’t this just give England the same issue with cops that America has had for the longest time?

  13. Just against the white people, though.
