  1. Past hour
  2. I’m also a bit strange in the fact that I don’t believe being a conservative rules anybody out from having a social conscience just lots of decent red and blue think the route to achieving a decent society is different, of course that rules out the loons on both sides😂, reall for me I just want politicians to tell the bloody truth , there’s not a minister in the country who can say they wouldnt have made mistakes dealing with this corona crisis
  3. In the year 2525 if man is still alive... (you have to be a certain age)
  4. It takes two days from requesting a test before someone comes to collect it off you. There’s a 48 hour window to perform the test from when the sample is taken, with the earliest possible time of taking the sample 9pm the night before pickup. That doesn’t give the lab guys much time when you consider the driver may only be picking your sample up late in the day. Worst case that’s an 84 hour turnaround, plus a little bit more to send the results to the person involved. I think 48 hours between requesting a test and receiving the results is a bit too ambitious.
  5. It’s the end of the world as we know it
  6. Eddie I hope you take this in the spirit it’s intended , There’s only one thing worse than fear of dying and that’s fear of living ,, go out on your walk , get some sunshine, relaxation as some feeling of normality slowly returning, take the right social distancing measures to keep yourself and wife as safe as poss but start grabbing a little bit of life back or else what’s the point , you could stay home be miserable as fxck for the next two years get a corona vaccination and keel over with a heart attack
  7. What i find is that going after 8pm there arent as many people about. Hope it helps.
  8. Just everything Owen says https://www.novibet.co.uk/blog/top-15-best-michael-owen-quotes-commentary/
  9. Are you yolking? That's a cracking story if not. 😉
  10. It’s an interesting one. In the first instance I thought Cummings needed to go, regardless of any general feeling that Boris has done an OK job. Not exceptional but as well as we could expect any incumbent to. Sounded at first look like rank hypocrisy. Then listening to the myriad of stories, gossip and comment And a breakdown of the fact and events I just concluded that Cummings actions were pretty reasonable. Not perfect, not ideal, given his position in the hierarchy but all pretty “meh” when we got to the nitty gritty. You could have done it, I could have done it, there was his kid involved. Just didn’t look like scandal to me. Slightly embarrassing sure but capital crime and worth all the faux outrage ? Not to me but then again, interpretation is what it is for every individual. As to you Archied, I reckon you are very even handed and big picture, and always are on this forum. we are probably a few degreees apart politically but but only as far milk first or last. Still make tea. I don’t think you’re weird or a loner, just think we disagree on this particular point
  11. They didn't start the fire. It was always burning since the world's been turning.
  12. Lunch time, quick omelette for one with last 2 eggs in the box, both double. Tonight decided to have pancakes, new egg box ( both were from Sainsbury's) cracked first egg it 's a double, cracked the next, also a double one. Unreal. I cant even remember having a double yellow before today. Gonna get a lottery ticket for tomorrows draw.
  13. Plain old boring fish and chips tonight. Last week, Tesco substituted basa (Mekong delta catfish) for the unavailable smoked haddock, so tonight I cooked a couple of fillets. I took some panko breadcrumbs, mixed in a load of chopped parsley, basil, chopped chives and dried lemongrass, used coconut flour instead of ordinary flour as the base, eggy milky wash, dipped in the breadcrumb mix. a flick of coconut oil and baked them in the oven for 20 minutes. No pics - this week's Tesco delivery arrived at an inappropriate time and I forgot. The verdict on the basa - same flaky quality as cod but far more flavour and about half the price. Delicious and thrifty - will buy again, by choice.
  14. Steak salad with caper and mint dressing.
  15. Trump not holding back today I see - got time on my hands for the next few weeks so might start building a bunker under my house. "We will be today terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization and directing those funds" to other global public health charities, Trump says. "The world is now suffering as a result of the malfeasance of the Chinese government," he says, adding that China "instigated a global pandemic that has cost over 100,000 American lives". China, he says, "pressured the World Health Organization to mislead the world" about the virus. "Countless lives have been taken and profound economic hardship has been inflicted all around the globe,"

    I agree totally - but if I do go out, I will most definitely wear a mask - for the benefit of others, both physically and for their mental well-being. I hope that others feel the same way.
  17. I know it's high time we 'moved on', but I've been refreshing my memory on this. TLDR - don't hold your breath. The report, produced by the Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC), was completed in March 2019 and after being approved and redacted by the security services was sent to Johnson for approval on 17th October. After approval by the PM, the report needs to be published by the ISC and the committee only exists for the duration of the parliament. So as Johnson hadn't approved it by the time parliament was dissolved on 6th November it has to wait until a new ISC is formed. He finally approved the report on 13th December, the day after the election. Hmmm. The ISC members are appointed by the PM, So now we're waiting for Johnson to appoint a new committee, and to date he's only appointed the chairman Chris Grayling (yes, that's what I thought!). There are nine members on the committee and he's appointed one in five months. Maybe I'm being too cynical here, but it's almost as though he doesn't want it published. Does the fact the Dominic Grieve, the previous ISC Chairman and troublemaking remoaner, was so keen to get it published before the election suggest that it may contain something of interest? Now the pandemic gives Johnson a perfect excuse to spin out the proceedings a bit longer, but as we're all allowed to play tennis again maybe he can find time for a few fund raising games with Ms Chernukhin at £160,000 a pop.
  18. We're going to end up as the only European country with a second wave anywhere near approaching as bad as the first wave, aren't we? Too late to lock down, fewer control measures than elsewhere, a longer curve, a higher risk of damage to the economy forcing an easing of lockdown both weeks later than others and yet far earlier than we should really be considering given our infection rate. ..or I could just be a little drunk and fearing the worst.
  19. Eddie


    Were there 12 of them?
  20. Today
  21. Not that i am aware of. Don't have definitive proof he is the policeman named either, but i will keep on it and give updates, for i have little else to do today. This may be of interest though. The fella in the pink shirt who followed the umbrella hammer man into the parking lot after he broke the windows of an auto store can be seen again, this time in front of the police station with no pizza box in his hands, but wearing a backpack, taking on crowd control. https://mobile.twitter.com/AlexLunaViewof1/status/1266294275454627840 Ahh, the plot thickens. There is no pizza in the pizza box
  22. Or we should just be told to 'stay home' it appears!
  23. What are actually chances of seeing this if look towards the moon.
  24. What difference would it make to have changed the lockdown on Friday evening rather than Monday morning? The way they've been doing things they can't say 'oh well, it will make this difference'...
  25. Chances are you will be a receiver rather than a giver so you won’t be passing anything on. I don’t know if that helps.
  26. We just need to act responsibly and with integrity............................................. in other words do what we want when we want🤔
