  1. I have an idea for you. Buy yourself a toy. Give the box to the cat. Win win.
  2. Not the brightest minds there taking the copyright date as the date the photo was taken. I'd say it's idiocy rather than lying but you can ask which it is. Have fun.
  3. Shouldn't this be in here: Are People Just ****ing Stupid These Days Sells for $90,000 to $100,000 in China and thinks he can get it for $30,000.
  4. That's a possibility which I would fight against. RIPA was widely misused by councils but it was badly written and not constrained. This at least has constraints on retention time and only under anti terror laws. It would take parliamentary amendment to broaden it.
  5. Possibly but the retention is only for 6 months and only under prevention of terrorism laws which suggests it's only for named individuals already under surveillance.
  6. May I add this may not have been quite the smartest question ever in the history of questions.
  7. We couldn't go on holiday to France this year so we had a bit of a cheese tasting at home. Trash Cat (George) decided he really wanted some cheese so he sat on the sofa, stared at us and drooled.
  8. I agree with Frank. To use an oxymoron that's pretty fugly.
  9. RIP Alan. Sad news indeed.
  10. Well done DM for doing the right thing and paying back furlough money because their business was resiliant.Maybe some others will follow. Doc Marten pays back furlough cash
  11. At least she wouldn't target a vital organ.
  12. Just been inadvertently sat on and subsumed.
  13. yes. Agree on the metrics and that is a good thing. So slowly open up and monitor admissions and deaths. Use targeted track and trace. This is still the failing we have. If you look at Taiwan and South Korea they had outbreaks but reacted very fast with neighbourhood lockdowns for a few days. This few days bought time for mass testing and tracking so infected could be isolated then the rest of the neighbourhood could get back to work. All we can do is shut greater Manchester.
  14. Yes hindsight is great and when lockdown was implemented all we really knew was Wuhan, Italy and Spain where health services were overwhelmed. we have to disagree on the ego thing. I don't think you can prevent outbreaks of this bastard. All you can do is contain. And the only way to that without a national lockdown is with regional control with test track and trace.
  15. Like the USA and Brazil. Let's follow them. We can all be selective with stats. The real bollocks was successive governments not doing planning for a pandemic in contradiction to the initial claims from the government that we have been planning for this for years. Nobody learned the lessons from Taiwan, South Korea or Japan. They all had outbreaks but had rapidly put in place local lock down with effective tracing. Hard learned lessons from SARS. Even Hollywood knows that to contain an aggressive virus you need to trace an impose local restrictions. Instead we would implement a "world bea
  16. I guess I should have put a question mark on my first response although i did think it was clear enough.
  17. So if all it did was put thousands out of business it did nothing to slow the spread of COVID.
  18. So the exponential case growth in London would have just stopped as per the Trumpian model of the World
