Just got the sick bag out.....Angela Smith fawning over the owners of Stoke City because they have guaranteed the wages of the staff.

With the money slushing around that club and the owners business funds it would have been criminal if they hadn't,remind me how much does Denise Coates take out of Bet 365 ? and don't tell me they give a lot of money to charity, so they should, it's obscene the amount of money they make out of gambling.and peoples misery, so the least they can do is pay some back into the community.Rant over.

Not going to make much at the moment. I logged on to Betfair yesterday and could only bet on The Belarus premier league!. Think the Ukraine league might be going on but for how long I don’t know.

Thanks. The support is much appreciated.

Good luck, your family won’t be the last on this forum to get it unfortunately.

they reckon 50% of those in hospital in Italy are under 50 so it ain’t just a Young persons illness.

So there's more chance of pigs flying outside your window than being able to do a food shop online at the moment. Asda, Morrisons, Tesco... I've tried them all. Every one of them is fully booked for as long as you can check for.

So we're told to stay at home and isolate ourselves and yet to hope you can get a little bit of food you have to go and be amongst a crowd of fiesty shoppers in your local Supermarket? It only takes one person to be infected at any one time in the building and literally dozens could come out with the Coronavirus...

It's been pretty bad at the supermarkets for 4-5 days now and seems to be getting worse each day. If only everyone shopped as normal...... The problem is that talk of lock-downs and shortages of Y & Z, plus pictures in the papers of empty shelves - all these things induce panic and anxiety and results in people queuing from 6.00 in the morning.

The other thing that is very annoying is that, despite the limits, some folk are going back in two or three times and loading up with far more than they need, leaving the rest of us with nothing.

We didn't need this crisis to tell us we live in an increasingly selfish society but how much food do you need? 

I'll have to have a word with Private Walker to see if he can sort me out!

They have technology to stop people coming back into the shop..... why not use it.?.

A ration book app on a mobile would sort it, registered with a chosen supermarket closest to where you live. Allocated shopping day and time slot, loyalty card used as swipe card if not in possession of a mobile.

One positive is the environment.  Pictures of the canals in venice etc...  it just goes to show us just how quickly the planet can recover, if we just stop!

Maybe that's why this is happening, to show us the error of our ways.

Fake news  https://www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/2020/03/coronavirus-pandemic-fake-animal-viral-social-media-posts/ but do agree In the hope the Environment will benefit with what is happening. Pollution in China has decreased massively this year, my concern is the amount of disposable gloves and sanitiser bottles which will be added to the worlds plastic pollution.

My mother in law lives in Birmingham and alone. She has dementia and we get home help for her 3 or 4 days a week. My wife tries to get to see her  as much as possible so my brother in law has been doing what he can too. He got up 3 days now on the trot to purchase neccessities for Mum but found all the local shops were virtually empty. He spent 6 hours trying to get a carton of milk! 

I have just had to close down my self employed business in the Holiday Travel Industry due to all bookings being cancelled at least until June, but more than likely a lot longer than that. The Government cannot assist me as I am over the age required and self employed. I can't even claim any benefits. My wife and I are fortunate in that we have been prudent over the years with money(other than to pay out watching Vale home and Away) lol.  We can  cope.

Our local shops are similar to the aftermath of a cattle stampede so I sympathize fully with all who are having problems.  

We all need to look after each other and be sensible(fat chance of that with human nature being as greedy as it is) and keep as healthy as possible. I wish all Valiants worldwide all the beset in these harrowing times. We will all come together again soon, hopefully.

A lass on BBC has just said that there is currently a billion pounds worth more food in folks homes than there was a couple of weeks ago.  That is utter madness.  England has a considerable number of extremely selfish, inconsiderate people who give no thought at all to the needs of others.  Some of the behaviour we have seen recently has been quite shameful.
