    That's the enjoyment John and Lynne - it's putting faces and voices to posters written views and the information we know.
    You might have thought from my scribbling that I was a slightly irritable geezer who was slightly shorter than your dogs and voila!...you weren't wrong 😂
    I've had a lovely time and already discovered that 2 of the regulars live in belper where I grew up so there's some beer buddies already!
    Take care, stay safe and keep the proles 2m apart at Costco John....

    Well all of us have abided by the "rules" as its turned out there weren't any. Just a set of "guidelines" for making best endeavors to meet. 
    A bit like the pirate's code in the pirates of the Caribbean 🤣

    You really tried hard Angie.
    There’s no winners or losers in today’s world.
    There’s last place still, but we don’t gloat about  who came last on this forum, you were merely keeping @David position warm.

    Not to be overly critical of the furlough scheme, as I think it's been pretty much the only success this government has had during this crisis, but it's easy to do handouts... it's much harder to raise taxes in a fair way to pay for it all once it's come to an end.
    As a saver, talk of negative interest rates doesn't sit too well with me either.

    I'm just a few hours into kingdom come so a way to go. RPG style is my thing - did AC origins earlier this year and catching up on far cry series also during lockdown. 
    Main grumbles so far with KC are...
    - why does it play the intro story on loading every time.....takes ages
    - the side quests are beginning to pile up and you don't seem to be able to choose when to pause the main storyline and finish one or two off.
    That said, enjoying the realism, but it does make the action seem slow on occasion.  I keep forgetting to bathe or wash and then nobody will talk to me as I stink. Such realism.....🤣

    I agreed with you and think there is definitely a place for a group who are non-partisan and exist only to expose hypocrisy, inconsistency and downright mendacity. 
    Led By Donkeys were formed as an anti Brexit outfit tho and need to move on and establish their credentials beyond that space, or they are easily labelled/ignored.

    I think the "Led by donkeys" piece is perfect. It's precisely why they exist. Can't call it hysteria.

    We don't get a general election for 5 years. No way he'll get a vote of no confidence and it'll take a pile of bye elections for him to lose his majority. 
    I suppose that you can never rule out Boris getting knifed by his own lot. The Tories have always been about ruthlessly clinging to power and shifting their position accordingly. 
    Which is why there are a number of Tory MPs now lining up to dump Cummings because they're sniffing the air and smell public disapproval.

    BoJo has a track record of being a "good time" leader - happy to delegate as long as he can take any credit, so this would be entirely consistent behaviour.
    It's up to the voters to call him out when they get a chance to pass judgement. But we'll probably have forgotten the worst parts of this episode of ineptitude by late 2024...
