'UK government' and big 'IT project' do not go well together. Mainly because for the last few decades successive governments have worshipped at the feet of the free market and outsourcing.

If you outsource you have someone to blame....... but you can take the credit if it ever goes right.

Far too many fruitcakes who feed on misinformation posted on social media.

But because of its past actions and indecisiveness has the government lost the trust of sections of the public and is it now impossible to get everyone to toe the line? 

Let's hope not because the prospect of the winter months when illness and health problems are at their worst isn't an appetising prospect. 

The good weather and ability to be outdoors (for those of us lucky enough to have the space) has been a godsend. But not for much longer.

I have a feeing things are going to get much worse before they start to get better. Footballers seem to be getting it at a much more frequent rate now and sadly I can see it coming to a stop again before too long. It's probably going to be this way until a successful vaccine is found and distributed.

I suspect a lot of the players who have tested positive are actually asymptomatic.  I imagine it's a case of finding the cases because you are looking for them.  I don't mean that makes it any less of an issue but it may explain the rising numbers.

Come on then the Boris Boys...

The Palace of Westminsters bars can stay open beyond curfew because "they are workplace canteens".....

Its Cummings trip to Durham all over again and meanwhile students in Manchester have been held hostage all weekend....

Scumbags, the lot of them and those that support them are increasingly looking like idiots.

Banning football crowds to league games but allowing them to none league games is a bit confusing.

However if you take it as part of the government's overall message it make perfect sense.......

No one has an f ing clue what they are doing.......... or why.

It makes sense in terms of drawing a clear line somewhere between 50 locals turning up for Hanley Town and 50,000 flocking across the country to Old Trafford. The government has set the line at non-League, telling the EFL hard luck but that non-league clubs have a fighting chance. Maybe they could have drawn the line at 5,000 fans and then we'd be happy but Sunderland fans would still be pissed off.

Last season was abandoned by the FA for non-League sides, now they are the only ones able to get any sort of revenue in. You win some, you lose some.

I sympathize with the government in that there will be those that lose out a lot and those that don't lose out so much (there are no winners in this case sadly). But of course when the government ministers decide that there is one rule for us and one rule for them then that's why there is a damaging break down in trust.

I thought the clear line was drawn with the rule of 6?

It's not 50 showing up at Hanley Town though is it? Trust me, there hasn't been a game this season where there hasn't been over the 300 official attendance with plenty of groups of lads well over the rule of 6 threshold . Not that I care, good for them for making the most of what is an absolutely ridiculous ongoing farse that most who read this message seem more than willing to allow to continue until a vaccine is developed, whenever that might be. You can't tell me that 4,000 in VP across 20,000 seats is more "risky" than 400 crowded in at Hanley with plastic cups full of booze from the bar and a "Covid Marshall" who rightly doesn't give a monkeys.

Anyway, how are you all getting on, 189 days after the initial lock-down started? Everyone still happy jumping to the tune of a government, in aid of this bizarre international stats game to see who is best at suppressing a minor, but uncontrollable chest infection? Ready for a Christmas where you will need to break the law to spend time with your family?

 

I'm genuinely interested to see what people make of it all. Are people going through the motions, wearing a mask so not to risk being the recipient of a £100 fine, or whether you think that action will actually help society, the economy and the ability for people to survive this period of pandemonium?
