IF you’re middle-class and self-isolating, people still need to know that
you’re better than them. Here’s how to do it.

Post links to tedious online gallery tours

You can pretend you’ve been learning about Michelangelo’s paintings in
the Sistine Chapel, when actually you’ve been looking at the willies on the
Elgin Marbles or having a wank over the Mona Lisa.

Volunteer and make sure everyone knows about it

Make a lasagne to drop off at the door of a local elderly person. Everyone
will think you’re a saint when you post a picture on Facebook captioned
‘Just doing my bit!’ even though the truth is that you’re just
offloading some out-of-date mince that was lowering the tone of your fridge.

Boast about using your second home as an isolation chamber

Even though you’re staying in London for the moment because it’s
convenient to nip out to Waitrose, make sure your friends know you have a
six-bedroom ‘cottage’ waiting in Cornwall ‘just in case’.

Make sure everyone knows you have a ‘pantry’

Panic buying is for people who have cupboards. You, on the other hand, have
got a well-stocked pantry of essentials, including eggs from your bantams,
tins of caviar, and a case of Dom Perignon for when self-isolation gets you
down.

Enrol your grandchildren in unsuitable online courses

If Olivia and Marcus can’t go to school, it doesn’t mean they should stop
learning. Enrol them in courses called things like Experimental Jazz For
Toddlers and tell them they’ll thank you later when they say they’d
rather watch CBeebies.

Caravan’s are exempt, because I love them.

I think it is their compact order which attracts me.

I have my Dad’s bungalow in Norfolk which no one has bought, and unlikely
to be anyone viewing for the foreseeable. I suppose that could be counted as
almost a second home.

Very good! Also take your schoolkids to the supermarket with you, as they
can't go to school, and make sure they touch everything in the shop while
coughing and sneezing.

By the way, I was surprised at the hostility shown by the media to those
folks escaping the cities by moving into the countryside. I can
understand country folk not being very happy at having newcomers but the
media also showed disapproval.

Isn't this how people have escaped diseases since time immemorial? Seems
very sensible, especially given the low levels of infection currently.
Seems it's not good form right now.

Yes, it does seem very strange.

I’m assuming the security services will voluntarily cut their staff by 75%
as there are no people to monitor in the streets or at our borders?

Or probably not - because they love the gravy train, so they will insist they
need twice as many staff to monitor people in their homes via laptop and
smartphone 24/7.Anyone audibly planning on going out of their front door will
find a black Mercedes drawing up outside their house, and arrest will be
mandatory.

It won't be long before we get the South Korean system of phone tracking
people with coronavirus and displaying their personal itinerary for all to
see.
