Dunna worry Fosse.

The rule of 6 won't apply to the hunting and shooting upper class brigade.

Levelling up at its finest.

If you get caught mingling with friends just say you're on your way to Barnard Castle for an eye test or only breaking the law in a limited way that is acceptable to you.

 

Well, as Dom and his band of outlaws said, backed up by Boris and Co...  we are free to interpret the laws how we feel is best for us.  Well, at least Dom was so I assume we can do the same.

Hi all, An announcement from OVF Towers... this evening I will be putting a few things in place to hopefully help some users out during the pandemic,  particularly during the self-isolation perio

I am a law abiding citizen. I have never even had a parking ticket and I am in my 60th year. I accept that the Government has had a very difficult job but they have made a complete horlicks of it. The

Just don’t understand the need for politics to become involved in this. It’s a world wide pandemic come what may. Let’s rally round together. Sadly impossible as too many keep trying to gain some form

One of the lessons of the governments mishandling of this crisis is that private companies can`t handle the workload as efficiently as the public service workers in the NHS. The latest example of this is the private labs pleading for help off the NHS labs to cope with the workload in August when the levels of virus were at their lowest.

The money wasted on contracts to tory friends is scandalous and probably fraudulent.

We have a NHS for 70 odd years, then a pandemic comes along so ignore all their expertise and  then build a health test system from scratch by  a non specialist contractor and expect a world  beating system.  We wonder why Brexit is a shambles to. Is there a common factor?

I don't understand why they aren't rolling out the restrictions they have introduced to the North East, nationally.  Why wait for the infection rates to rise before taking action, why not be pro active for a change?

I would guess they are trying to balance...... go to far one way the economy collapses go to far the other the population collapses. I don't think swinging from one side to the other does anyone any good in the long run. 

Playing catch up while getting ahead of yourself isn't easy, I've never seen it done.

Nail on the head.

Meanwhile, Rees Mogg tells everyone who can't get a test to stop carping. 

A bit like when he lambasted Grenfell Tower residents for not using their common sense.

How much damage to the economy does a 10pm pub curfew do?

I get what you are saying but surely swifter action now could prevent more draconian measures later.  Imagine Christmas being all but cancelled because Boris didn't want to close pubs a couple of hours early.

10 o'clock was the norm in the 50s, 9 30 in Glasgow. Just start drinking earlier.

Rees Moggs comets were frankly disgusting.

I note all new students at Eton managed to get tested.

I'm afraid ex-jockey Dido (mind how you spell that word) is a clone of Johnson - makes it up as she goes along and waffles and blusters and doesn't answer a straight question. 

"I don't have that information.... I'm afraid I can't tell you that......I'll find that out for you."

I bet she knows how many people can go hunting grouse though.

I remember in the early 80`s when pubs were allowed to serve until 11 that everybody just came out 30 minutes later so my shift moved from 7.30 start to 8.

Another unelected bureaucrat making a hash of things ... but apparently these ones are ok? Wonder why?
