    Stay at home, they come to you, especially if you have relatives close by. Who would be looking after the parents in bed ? I am sure lots of children accept nurses / carers into their homes, they will surely be trained to put them at ease. Nurses/carers will be equipped with protective clothing when entering Covid locations. I would source from my local surgery web site, where they also have 111 Covid info

    That’s a difficult situation all right. The first thing I’d say is that the direct health danger to a healthy child is minimal but s/he can act as a vector for the disease. Many isolating households have ended up with a sole carer getting it and the care recipient has had care from outside the house, either paid or informal / family. This is part of the reason that low paid care workers have been a very high risk group. More so I believe than nurses and doctors. In this specific situation the sensible thing would have been to pay for the niece to come down and accept her kind invitation. The niece and child both very low risk of getting seriously ill. Older vulnerable people caring for another vulnerable older person is a tricky one though as you suspect.
  4. When you look back at games we played at this level, you realise that players who we probably didn’t rate ie Beasley, Beadle and even Koordes and Snijders etc were much much better than the standard of player we have been used to over the last decade or so. So far have we dropped.And this was a struggling side. Yet we played 9 out of 11 seasons at this level. Sometimes we forget what an achievement that was.

    Boris says he has started to wear glasses because of covid effects. So is he lying now or was he lying in 2014? Or is he telling the truth and in fact he has had covid since 2014?

    We've got so entrenched in taking sides that it's no longer a question of what is right or wrong but whose side are you on. Quite frankly, it doesn't matter to me if Cummings is red or blue, black or white, man or woman, rich or poor. But he is the government's chief adviser, who helped to frame the rules, and he broke the regulations 2-3 times when the rest of the country have made personal sacrifices for the good of us all. He's taking the mick and he should have apologised and resigned, if he'd got an ounce of integrity or remorse.

    I'm not defending Cummings in any way shape or form, in fact he should fall on his sword and should have done when this story broke. My query is purely a practical one, if you live hundreds of miles from family, you either have to go to them or they come to you. No home help or carer is going to come to your home and look after a child whose parents could/might have Covid, no child would accept a stranger into their home if both parents are in bed ill, and where would you source such a service ? Purely a practical question no hidden political agenda.
  9. It was the 'buzz' that Rudge created too, that pride in putting on the shirt to go out and put on a polished performance. you felt players were proud to play for the Vale, that it was an achievement in itself to do so
  10. Sky advertising stoke v chesterfield live the following night. Just checked the result. 0-0 !
  11. I live in hope but I'm not getting any younger. I always said seeing the Vale at Wembley and witnessing that Robbie Earle goal in the play offs were my greatest moments as a Vale fan but I was so proud when we got into the First Division and I could visit places like West Ham, Leicester, and the like, and see a Vale team running out at 10 to 3. Marvellous. Whether we see that again is a tough ask but I remain hopeful. You make a good point about the style of play we cultivated under Rudgie. It was always pleasing on the eye and good to watch. Wonderful memories.

    Well said Doha... on reflection @Regal Beagle your response is pathetic. Changing the truth to protect those you side with. Wonder where you learned that!!

    He clearly mentioned the concern for the drive was because his eyesight hadn’t been right... don’t try and change it. You acknowledged that it’s an excuse. Do you believe that’s why he went there? To test his ability to drive distances?

    Regal Beagle, do you agree that Boris lied on TV yesterday when he said Cummings didn't go to the castle?

    Stay at Home, should both parents be incapable with covid 19 at the same time, call in a relative/friend, or home help/carer if not available.

    Gaslighting liar.
  17. I do like the teams John Rudge put out; the style of football he always tried to get them to play Shall we see his like again? Points-with-Bone
  18. I did like Martin Foyle. I may have mentioned that before.

    Well, if you've got the virus one thing you don't do is leave your house! This wasn't the case here, was it? There was always one parent who was well enough to look after the lad. The guidance was clear at the end of March, when this happened, at the height of the pandemic. You stay at home and self isolate if you think anyone is ill. In most cases most people get only mild symptoms and recover quickly. So what you should do is stay at home and see what develops. You can phone 111 if you need help or 999 in an emergency, that this wasn't. If you have a sister in law and brother and their children in London, plus friends and work colleagues, I imagine you can phone them. If it gets more serious I imagine someone in your family can come to your house. Public health England also said that local authorities and councils can help. But all this is hypothetical and did not occur in this case so it's irrelevant. We can't make public health policy based on what ifs, maybes and hypotheticals. Cummings broke the regulations 2 or 3 times at least. Stay at home. Do not leave you house. If you have family and friends nearby there is no need to do so. Nor drive to Barnard Castle to test your eyesight. One rule for him and another for us mugs. Hypocrisy of the highest order.

    You've misrepresented me again. Here's what I said on Saturday night when assessing what we knew so far: As you can see, I said that the Barnard Castle incident was possible and weight was added by the witness being named and offering a bit more detail. I also said that it was the bluebell story that sounded like garbage and it looks like I was spot on, unless Cummings bare face lied today and some evidence comes to light, it doesn't seem likely though. To answer the legitimate part of the question - he wasn't "testing his eye sight" was he, he further clarified that he wanted to see whether he was up for a 5 hour drive, not whether he was fit to drive at all. That bit is a bit weak if I'm honest. But an excuse being a bit weak is the best you have, it seems the bottom has fallen out of the allegations after so many of them have turned out to be untrue.

    Would somebody just answer a simple question I've wondered about. If both parents have or could have covid 19 and are unable to look after their children, what do they do ? No child minder in their right mind would enter that environment. If you put them into care , which no parent in their right mind would consider , you might be signing their death certificate given that carers are highly likely to come into contact with covid 19 on a daily basis .

    A Land Rover Discovery that I think he drives only gets you around 30 mpg at best. How can he do a round trip of about 520 miles plus 60 to the Castle and back without stopping for petrol, twice at least? Stay at home. Protect the NHS. Save lives. Unless you are Dominic Cummings.
  27. Bit of a “Dad’s Army” side with Barnett, Beasley, Barker & Foyle. No creativity in midfield, but with Talbot and an aging Barker it should come as no surprise. Not hard to see why we struggled that season.
