I've only seen one person not wear a mask. It's not compliance that's causing it to spread, it's the rules that allow some transmission. It's a difficult balance to strike & I think the government has got many things wrong, but it's a tricky balance to make.

Very difficult. The Netherlands are experiencing lockdown riots. And the glorious EU have completely messed up procurement of the vaccine and are lashing out like some sort of dictatorship.🤔

BREXIT. The countdown has begun. 🤗

Yep..and about bloody time too.. as far as I can see the deal isn't that bad. Better than I thought and certainly better than if we hadn't taken them to 1 second to midnight..

Are you sure? Still seems to be a couple of inhabitants expressing the voice of dissent. Maybe if we grovelled to that nice Monsieur Macron he would still let us rejoin his little club, subject to a little ridicule and a lot of euros, then everyone will be happy.
Well apart from the majority of the British public who openly told the Brussels bullies to eff off. laugh.gif

When it is reformed (the EU) it might be worth taking another look. Until then...

Are the French still sending their migratory jetsam across the channel does anyone know? Seems to have gone a bit quiet on that front.

All the dinghies have been repurposed by remainers claiming asylum in the EU!🤣

Anyone regretting voting for these idiots yet? Exaggerate a new strain to justify the Christmas about turn and we end up under virtual siege.


Brexit ended some time ago chap. This is about Covid. Do try and keep up.🤣

On a not dissimilar theme Royal Mail has been awarded a contract to distribute and collect Covid19 test kits. So what? I hear you cry as that's what they do, don't they.
Well yes but this "nice little earner" is worth a mouth watering 500 million.
If I was a still working full time I think I would be checking the gas oven by now. angry.gif


It's ok Sir Will. We now live on #plagueisland

So now we are "enjoying" the privilege of being in Tier 4. So devastating is this virus that Whitty and the Wanders, (the present day pied pipers), are so concerned of people are dropping dead in the streets they have to introduce a new level of control.
Mutation of the virus they scream. Well most viruses do this, it is part of their construction.

Quick straw poll of those who care to read this; how many people do you know who have actually been hospitalised, or worse, over the last month? I am expecting a figure of between 1 and 3 depending on the total number of individuals you actually know
Now take away the over 70's, (includes me), those with underlying problems and I think the figure will be at a level you may start to question the current approach.
I will try to adhere to the present guidelines, (if I could understand them), but I do worry for our future with such individuals in charge.


0 and 0 Sir Will, and hospitals are at 85% capacity (95% this time last year)...makes you think something else is going on... meanwhile..hast du deine papier?

Maybe, just maybe the increase in positive test results has more to do with an increase in testing as opposed to an increase in infection?
Has the hospitalisation rate increased? Certainly the death numbers are not rising or the press would be screaming from the pulpit.
Considering that seasonal influenza is also a "Corona" virus and it has already been established that our testing system is anything but "world beating", (Boris speak), I wonder how muddy the water is.

Still with xmas cancelled it will save telling the carol singers to bugger off.


The testing has been pretty consistent for the last few months so that would suggest a big spike in this area. If they test all the kids (which they plan to do) cases will then rocket!!

As for Xmas. I just feel sorry for the old folk. No one else.

If the vaccination rate is anything like the rest of this debacle then I can see you being offered it in April 2028. (Yes twenty eight!)
Vaccination good.....Waiting months to receive it, not so good. rolleyes.gif

We will all be dead by then of mutant ninja Corona 2020.

So... QQ...

Who is going to be 1st in the queue for a vaccine?

I will defo want it...but must admit I'd like to see a few others take it first... It will be interesting to see the criteria that selects the people to be first on the list.

I can confidently predict he will step down, thusly giving the USA their first female of colour president. If she comes out tomorrow as gender neutral she could be in the chair by February...... Democrats.

Imho, what the country needs next time is an electoral pact to deliver PR. We shouldn’t have to put an with another extreme government (left or right).

Will never happen. Neither of the 2 main parties want to be joined at the hip with the equivalent of a Jo Swinson.
I'm not against it. Just saying it will never pass in Parliament.
Still...locked down till March soon (with a week break at xmas), Donald Trunp reelected with a minority vote and a debt of 3 trillion of WW2 proportions that will kill hundreds of thousands of the next generation prematurely. What's not to like?🙄

A common sense approach to the issue has been overwritten by those who believe that modern technology is the answer to EVERYTHING let alone this little exercise. Little doubt in some sectors of society this can be a useful tool, but as the case with any implement, it is only as good as it's weakest part. And as far as I can ascertain it has completely overlooked that section that are the most vulnerable; the elderly. There are countless thousands of pensioners who do not own a mobile phone, let alone a "smart" one and have no wish too, assuming they could afford one. As happened at the start of this pandemic they have once again been thrown "under the bus" when it comes to protecting them. The rise in infection may now be with the younger demographic but it is still the elderly that are succumbing.
But of course they are the right wing, brexit loving, white supremacy bigots that society could well do without. angry.gif angry.gif


It's just Logans Run by Stealth. Get on the Carousel, Sir Will. Greenest thing to do would be to kill 5 or 6 billion. 👍

Does any Government sponsored IT development ever work properly? It seems that the much delayed App doesn’t work on older (in some cases by 18 months) ‘Smart’ phones. Still, it’s only little people disadvantaged by this. Government for the few takes off!

Works for me. Get an upgrade.😂

Testing centres have not started popping up everywhere. MTU's both drive-in and hybrid have been established for months. Maybe if we stop testing, the virus will go away. I seem to remember another idiot saying something similar.

I'm looking forward to being a Covid Marshall. You get a brown shirt and a Taser. Marvellous.👍
