  1. I dont buy them so this is just my thoughts..... It's just to busy.
  2. Not sure how it will look in a wall when they are all holding their nuts
  3. I wonder how long it will take to find a loophole?
  4. All politicians lie..... it's not amusing it's just a fact...... once you accept that fact you can do away with the fake shock and surprise and start searching for some reality..... some snippet of truth to hopefully see what's really going on, maybe avoid the sound bites and the false promises..... maybe even cut through the identity politics. It's sometimes beneficial to ignore what they say and scrutinise what they don't say.

    I think it is essential to recognise the priorities..... and list them in order. It seems counter productive to save the NHS by denying service to people who need it for things other than covid. Personally I would close all the boarders to passenger traffic, both in and out except for passengers going or coming home. Enforce isolation, not trust to self isolation. Keep what we have, don't import more. Test everyone, not just people with symptoms, track and trace every contact. If a business is open, e.g. pubs, but doesn't adhere to guidelines..... close them down. The very first step should be to decide what the rules are, what can and can't be allowed..... produce a clear decisive message that EVERYONE has to abide by...... no exceptions..... not for MPs, government employees, police, front line workers etc.

    Coronavirus

    Apparently serious warnings were issued to and between governments in early January about this virus by security services... it's a little alarming that things don't seem to have been done until the death rate climbed.

    To save money..... why not round up all the virus deniers to work in the NHS with corona patients..... they wouldn't need ppe.

    Coronavirus

    It seems strange to me that any government would suspend normal health services to curtail the spread of a virus but on the other hand worry about people having a holiday and facilitate travel in and out of the country with no checks or quarantine. It also seems odd that it took 4 months to impose restrictions on flights but only a couple of weeks to lift the restrictions which were then re-imposed within a few days from selected destinations. It's also odd that while the virus was rampant in some areas of the world, scientists warned of a second wave and some areas were experiencing the start of a second wave travel to other countries was not restricted, temperature checks on arrivals were not carried out and quarantine not imposed. If you are having problems dealing with a virus within your own boarders why would you take the risk of importing or exporting more potential cases?

    I just offered what he said I don't know the relevance.

    It's like reading all the toilet walls in the world?
  11. People always try to defend their political preference..... usually with the words.... the other lot are worse or similar. Politicians lied about brexit, the elections, joining the common market, wars and everything inbetween.... on both sides.... or all sides depending on the circumstances.
  12. It amuses me when people are shocked/horrified when politicians lie. Newspapers, those great bastions of truth 555, make merry with indignation and surprise even though they have reported on it for decades. Politicians lie, they have engaged in the activity since they crawled into the political sewer. It's not a shock to find the ones that lie..... it's like finding a unicorn when you discover one who doesn't.
  13. Like I said above I can't disagree with the original post much..... except to add a flippant what do you expect, he's a politician.
  14. It's not an argument..... it's just a reflection..... an attempt at humour if you will.... don't be so serious..... I would have included a smiley but I can't use them, they lock my page up.
  15. They are entitled to a view....... I'm wondering if it's the same collective youth who seem to think free speech is only allowed if they agree with it, think anyone who disagrees is alt right and thinks the only meaning to the word queer refers to homosexuality...... etc. The rest of the post seems fairly accurate.

    Coronavirus

    Masks do not stop the wearer catching the virus..... they have a limited effect on the spread from the wearer to other people and the things they come into contact with. The simple act of breathing runs the risk of spreading the virus to others and inanimate objects close enough to be contaminated. A number of shops, supermarkets, government buildings etc here will not allow access without a temperature check, mask, name, address, telephone number and a splash of sanitizer.
  17. They would have still let them in without temperature checks or quarantine.

    Nothing at all in some..... the odd tumbleweed blowing through?
  19. Disgraceful if guilty..... hoping it's someone seems a little strange. From the scant information available it suggests the details are a little odd.... but who knows. Has he/she been charged yet?

    I don't think that's appropriate.

    Coronavirus

    The first things criticised were a race meeting and a football match if I remember correctly.... followed by several other "gatherings" of various sizes. There is a reduced risk of the elderly spreading the virus, they were either isolated, hospitalised or dying. The heaviest criticism has been laid at the government's door, not for spreading the virus but for failing to stop the spread by taking appropriate steps in a timely manner. If the virus is spread by proximity then anyone breaching that proximity deserves criticism... whether it's people on a beach, protesters, clappers on a bridge, pub goers, shoppers or anyone else.

    Coronavirus

    To late to react...... to soon to open up...... and a lot of strange and confusing decisions inbetween
  23. I think art is like beauty...... it's not what you see it's how what you see makes you feel.
