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.

Where are all the "not my President riots?"

Because the MSM narrative is total bollocks. Has been for years.
President Harris will be interesting..I can see a flight of wealth and brains from the USA over the next few years...

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.😂

I agree that if the world was spherical at least some would fall off it.

All the Covid Marshall jobs seem to finish at 1730.
The only people being cautioned will be old biddies.
Guess they are not keen on enforcing social distancing outside Wetherspoons on a Friday night..

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.👍

I genuinely think that as far as online goes, we’re so divided that any thread will descend into enmity. Not just this forum btw. I suspect in the real world we’dprobably all get on ok.

You think? 😂 Didnt people all try and meet up from this forum many.moons ago?

Kamala Harris is so full of crap.

Her mother is East Indian from Chennai. Her father is West Indian from Jamaica.

What part of her can claim to be African American???

She was selected to try to get the black vote back from Trump, but people see through the bull****.


Maybe so... but shes going to be the next President. Good luck!

We’re pretty insignificant. And when we’re gone, we’re gone.

The weird thing is I remember nothing at all of that day. I also had delerium for a couple of days after ICU and although I remember little, I know that my behaviour was very unpleasant. Despite my persona on here, I am generally extremely polite (except with annoying customers) and I’m embarrassed when I’m told of things I said and did.

But yes, I’m very lucky to still be here. And completely intact. No lasting damage at all.

I hope the “other stuff” diagnosed was nothing serious.


Nothing that couldn't be fixed by me taking more care of myself. Sometimes we forget we are 50 something and still think of us as young men... I'm not overweight but did hit the bottle a bit after my Mum passed last year...nothing serious but was using it to sleep.

I'm going to share something quite personal with you. About 5 weeks ago I had a cardiac arrest just outside of a park in Newbury. I was given CPR immediately and very luckily by a passer by and I believe I was "dead" for about 35 minutes until the fifth shock from a paramedic's defibrillator revived me. I then spent 6 days in a coma in Basingstoke and now have an implanted defibrillator in case it happens again.

History wise, I had a heart attack at 45 but have run 20 miles a week since then, walk, cycle etc and eat healthily.

Today's my 57th birthday and I'm a pretty lucky bloke to be here. Only 8 out of 100 survive a Cardiac Arrest out of hospital.

I'm making a fantastic recovery & thanks to brilliant CPR the oxygen flowed through my body for that 1/2 hour so no after effects at all. No organ damage.

Worth watching the video if you don't know how to do it. One day you might save someone's life.

Wow..sounds like you were very lucky. Take it easy fella and don't worry about stuff. Its really not worth it. I am 51 and went in for a full MOT in January as I was getting palpitations. Heart was fine but they diagnosed other issues. We are all here for a very short time and although we all think we know best, we really are irrelevant in the grand scheme of things (apart from to family members)..take care.

I'm leftish I suppose & I don't love Biden. But he looks a lot more stable than Trump. In the same way the right blame Brexit and Trump & populism on the left, the election of Biden has to be blamed on Trump and the right.

So.. Kamala Harris is going to be the next president....

Always refreshing to get a "locals" perspective on a countries politics. If you consider Trump to be the "best" man for the job then who am I to argue, but Biden must be a complete numpty if this is the case.

The point is he is no longer anything. Just a confused old man with Alzheimer's that is being put up as an alternative so they can get the "real" person elected. Makes you want to puke. Until they make the president of the USA a 50 million a year job and reform the system so you dont have to be a billionaire to run it's all bollocks. Just my view.
