As we keep telling the in-laws, let the young uns do the shopping. Their house is groaning under the weight of food – their neighbours are very good and the street is organised – but MIL keeps finding excuses to go out to get something they don’t really need.

I think until, God forbid, someone you know falls ill it doesn’t quite sink home unless you’ve seen the Sky News coverage from inside a Lombardy hospital ‘Everyone dies alone’. This is what rammed it home to me more than any statistics. Never mind the Govt infomercials, they should be replaced by this. The longer documentary from the area about the social impact is compelling watching too.
