  1. A huge % of Police work is currently dealing with COVID law breakers and people who don't realise they are breaking it (or those that do and don't care)! Plus of course those instances where people dial 999 because their neighbour has gone out for the 2nd time that day so "It can't be essential". So I feel your pain but the Police have to be seen to be acting. You would be shocked by how many people are breaking the rules constantly. Walking with 2 other people from outside their household, travelling to a park 10 miles away when there's one 30 seconds away because "I wanted a change of s
  2. Good for the Govt! "There will be a new £800 fine for people attending house parties of more than 15 people in England, "We will not be engaging and you will get a Fine". "When we see people that are putting others and themselves at danger, we'll not waste time trying to reason with them"
  3. If you find yourself chewing on your Partner when you wake up tomorrow, make sure you leave instructions to destroy the brain as that's the only way to destroy a Zombie.
  4. Yes but he's also part of the Political Elite that Trump campaigned against originally and won him the Presidency in the first place! I would love him to be a good President but I am sitting on the Fence. Despite the "Trumpism's" he actually did boost their Economy and jobs before COVID hit.
  5. Barry's making a joke and one that many people are making. Frankly I can't Stand Trump and I think Biden only got in because it was him or Trump. Any decent republican candidate and Biden was screwed. I also think he will be the first President to die in Office since JFK, though not for the same reason I hope, but its a stressful job and he is very, very old. This will leave the door open to the Vice President and having a Black Woman as President will be enlightening and a good thing for the people of America. Well done Kamala Harris!
  6. That's nuts! All those poor Martin's died for those shtreimel
  7. To be fair, if they have a certificate then they are not wearing a mask legally and the Police can't do anything about it, that was my point.
  8. Only just been offered my Flu jab yet alone COVID. And the Police have been totally omitted from any priority list so no joy there. I mean, it's not like you are dealing with people all day within 2 meters, going into peoples homes or dealing with people who tell you they are vulnerable or anything!
  9. As per the Express article, If Scotland got accepted then it would set a precedence for other places such as Catalonia to apply hence why Spain would never agree. Then you have other places that have a large % of their population asking for independence like Corsica, Bavaria and even Sardinia. I just don't see it. Especially as Scotland will need an awful lot more support coming in than they will contribute and right now the Eu is struggling to replace the UK's Net Contribution!
  10. They are confiscating British Drivers sandwiches as they are not allowed to import meat without paperwork. Oh yes they are playing silly buggers.
  11. I don't understand why this is even a conversation. It is plainly obvious that wearing a mask is to protect others, not yourself. Any kind of face covering reduces the amount of vapour you expel and how far it goes therefore reducing the amount put out. Surgical masks have both the effect of reducing your intake and what you put out. It doesn't matter how effective it is overall, it's part of a raft of measures including distancing, washing your hands regularly, using alcohol hand wash and many other things we do to REDUCE the chance of infection. Make no mistake here. This thing is
  12. My mate was in a similar situation and in the end went to court where his Ex had his support cut because she was "Making unfair demands" and being unreasonable with what she was spending the money on (He proved she was out drinking 3-4 nights a week, heavy smoker, bought a flash car for new Boyfriend, shopped at Waitrose etc. Get a good lawyer, she may get a nasty shock.

    Well, G4S are being bought out and my Cash offer means I go from a loss of several hundred to a small profit. Take into account the 3 years of dividend reinvestment and I am up quite a bit. So used the Cash to buy into a Silver Mining company. Silver is not only a precious metal but used in phones and It is also used in dental alloys, solder and brazing alloys, electrical contacts and batteries. I read a while ago that Silver is actually a great investment, even more so than Gold because it doesn't vary in value as much, it just tends to go up. This is proved in the price of Scrap S

    Mine aren't too bad. I am just a few hundred pounds above breaking even which isn't bad considering the state we are in. But many of my shares are Insurance companies, drinks companies, supermarkets and even a Security company.
  16. In attempting to clear up a post in the wrong section I accidently merged the Brexit (Euro question) and COVID (Coronavirus) Topics. Currently, with a little help, trying to separate them again so please be patient as every single post needs to be individually read and separated. Now, in my defence: 1. It's not like they were the 2 biggest posts or anything...... 2. It's not my fault Bibs gave someone who is a dribbling incompetent with technology, a position of trust...... 3. I was just trying to help, honest guv! Normal service on these 2 posts to be resumed in 5.....
  17. Nice an malleable, alot more liberal, not a fucking clue....yes.
  18. I have been saying for months that it is highly suspicious that Chinese and other Asian countries have by far the lowest transmission rate and lowest fatalities. You look at Japan. twice the population of the UK, full testing and only 294k cases with 3989 deaths. Korea, Virtually the same population of the UK 30k cases, 501 deaths (Yes 501). Though China is controlling its information I suspect it is not because many more have died than stated, I think its because its a very low figure and they know how suspicious that looks at the Point of Origin! If you genetically engineer a weapon, yo
  19. The way deaths are reported changed in August so that article is partly, no longer valid. I asked my daughter about this subject as a COVID doctor and senior A&E doctor. I was pointed towards this little quote: "A COVID-19 death is defined for surveillance purposes as a death resulting from a clinically compatible illness in a scientifically confirmed COVID-19 case, unless there is a clear alternative cause of death that cannot be related to COVID-19 disease (e.g. trauma)." I would therefore think that your person being run over would be covered by Trauma? The 2020 fig
  20. Ha! you beat me to it! I was about to share that myself lol. Yes. She works so hard as a nurse and then spends all of her spare time and an awful lot of her own money painting NHS heroes to help raise morale. She's amazing. And here's the original article from November https://www.edp24.co.uk/news/norfolk-nurse-painting-nhs-heroes-during-covid-6893422
  21. I've spent 2 weeks looking at it thinking I wish it was me and.....it must be cold.
  22. Yup But I had it right at the beginning almost 12 months ago. Anti-bodies drop off a cliff after around 9 months they think, like the Flu. Hopefully not but I feel rough. May be a chest infection.
  23. Self isolating with a sore chest and a cough. On the positive I got a drive through test within an hour and just have to wait 48 hours.
  24. TBH I know several Trump supporters well and they are normal people like me and you. He does attract a higher % of right wing extremists and conspiracy theorists though and feeds their desire for publicity in a dangerous way.
  25. Loved the Quote I just heard on the radio from a Trump supporter that really shows us Brits don't understand SOME Americans at all. "Yes we may have been carrying guns and riot shields, but it was a peaceful protest". According to the internet (and we know everything is true on there) the woman shot was a Veteran of 3 tours of Iraq.
