Two Metre Minimum

We are being responsible and maintaining our distance this week as Toby and James say the unsayable and wonder if shutting down the global economy will be worth it in terms of lives saved.

Also, the Stasi-like tendencies of the Twitter social isolation police, Boris’s handling of the crisis and whether the pandemic will mean the end of man hugs. Toby hopes it will, James hopes it won’t. Plus we salute the frontline troops – the men and women in medical service, not just in the NHS, but around the world.

This week’s opening: Minister for Health and Social Care Matt Hancock on BBC Radio 4’s The Today Programme.

    It’s good to see you fellows finally maintaining a tasteful and appropriate distance from each other — particularly after your recent post-Brexit celebratory excess.

    Anything that ends man-hugs means that good can even arise out of disaster. Hugging my wife is one thing, hugging everyone else? Fugeddaboutit, go away….
