  1. It’s the 1984 era. The book written by George Orwell, he said we would be spied on. Welcome to the new world, Petey. I got 1000 reminders and really stupid coughing to hell caller tune. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚βœŒπŸ’“

  2. We get messages all the time, normally about extreme weather and to be careful in high winds, that kind of thing. Funnily enough yesterday, when we went into lockdown, we didn’t get a message πŸ™‚
    I read that the UK Gov looked into a system to have a national alert system but then put in on hold due to cost. Yesterdays message was a request from the Gov to all the operators to pass on a message, so thats why pole received it at different times and some people never got it at all, which seems to sum up the response so far πŸ™‚

  3. I love the conversation you are having with your fellow countrymen/women, Pete. If the government texted me, my husband would freak out, but due to my nonchalance about such matters rubbing off on him, somewhat, he wouldn’t start hoarding firearms…So that’s good…Ha!

    1. Yes, pam. People here still have that ‘Blitz spirit’, even with no war. Except the ones hoarding all the hand-wash and toilet rolls of course! πŸ™‚
      If we all had guns like in America, no doubt ammunition would be rationed to 3 bullets per customer. πŸ™‚
      Best wishes, Pete.

  4. I didn’t need the government to tell me to stay at home. And by the sound of it our government is going to order us to leave our homes pretty soon. Seems the president saw pics of people partying on the beaches in California and Florida last weekend and decided social distance doesn’t work.
    Stay Healthy.

  6. I promise you no one did… all network operators were instructed to send to their entire base by the government… lots of people are confused though and we had to issue some emergency press releases!
