I wasn’t allowed to say anything until today, but it's now okay for me to share that I have volunteered for the Covid-19 vaccine trials that a local Hospital are running in partnership with Pfizer. It

Well it appears we may have it - just heard a Doctor describe the symptoms and it matches ours 100% - not quite a cold and not quite flu. Carina is suffering a lot more than me, but in reality for us

UK Virus ALERT   The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent virus threat and have therefore raised their threat level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, level may be raised

I've just been back past the location where the local Covidiots had their party on Saturday and it now looks like this, :realmad: .......................

Just before we went into lockdown, a group of us (dog-walkers) tidied-up the whole woodland area, in the run-up to the Great British Spring Clean, as it was beginning to show evidence of the passage of some of the untidier members of our community. We thought it was bad enough then with the odd discarded water bottle or crisp packet to contend with, but this takes it to a whole new level. How can a dozen kids create so much mess in one night? 

Oh well, I suppose that gives us an activity to look forward to once we can all get back together again. :rolleyes:

The OP was talking about the "App" which is not the same as the "homepage".

 

It's big news but shouldn't be. It's big news because the BBC and other media hate DC and sense blood. It's big news because there is fcuk all else news! It's big news because when the story first "broke" the media were so lazy they hadn't even got their basic facts correct, they were more interested in the headline and the "gotcha"

 

Personally, I think DC has been a complete shite over this. I think he should go. But it does not need 6, 7 or 10 news stories on the BBC FFS.

Clearly DC should go but he has no intention to unless there is continued press/negative public sentiment towards him. Personally I hope the press keep on at him until Boris is forced to do the right thing.

If DC's actions lead to people ignoring Govt advice, and they will, then I think the press are absolutely right to keep hounding him.

If we are locked down again what's the excuse for going out for a little drive.."Oh, officer, I was just checking my eyesight in case I need to drive somewhere, I have an important job dontcha know.." 

 

@PaulCP - It was a jogger out exercising and, as an aside, I doubt they were instrumental in forming the cover-19 restrictions.

Is that the role of the press now then, to become Judge, Jury and Executioner!

There are more than 1 person claiming to have seen him or, as one suddenly changed his story when things blew up, claiming to have seen someone who looks like him.

I’m not saying what he did was right, his argument is very weak in some areas, but the media can not be allowed to continue behaving in this way just because they have it on for him, as they have done for quite some time.
The media just about got away with murder over Caroline Flack didn’t they?🤔

Just seen Alistair "remainer/war monger" Campbell on TV. A spin doctor who sent young men to their deaths under false pretences and lost Brexit complaining about a spin doctor who engineered leave making a journey. I'm sure he is not biased at all.

Not just the Press asking for him to be removed a list of conservatives MPs, one tendered his resignation as the Secretary of State for Scotland and sure there will be  more to follow.

Possibly those same Tory MPs who have always wanted rid of him because they fear that he has more influence on Tory politics than they do. There has always been an element within the party who are uncomfortable with his role.

If  DC were to go for any reason, for me ti should be because of the outright lie that came from no10 that he didn't make the subsequent trips. If he's advising no 10/ Boris, then there has to be accurate info from him to that part of government and truth from it to the public (save for such things as a clear need to conceal for state security or something).

@andydclements - I agree with you, his one truly sackable offence, that must mean instant dismissal, is if he has told barefaced lies to the PM re his trips. In his role, not being truthtful to the PM makes his role untennable.

I watched Andrew Marr at the weekend. I usually have quite a bit of time for him. But his interview with the Transport Secretary was a shocker. Andrew Marr looks like he was telling as many lies as DC. His quotes were wrong. His "facts" were wrong. And he was clearly on the back foot when challenged. So unlike him. Also it was a clear hijacking of the Transport Secretary who seemed to have been lured in under total false pretences.

I thought Marr, like Neil, was above all that.

Shame really.

Now he fits absolutely perfectly with the BBC.

this is frankly all getting stupid now. The actions of the MSM are basically highlighting the concept lock down is irrelevant to the most stupid in society and to crack on regardless as this bloke over here has done this.

Peston did get short shrift from Hancock today. Anyway I guess attention will soon turn back to schools re-opening on Monday. There’s been a lot of questions about safety of staff, children and their families, but what I don’t understand is why we don’t already know all this from the other developed countries who have already been through this stage a few weeks ago. Surely we now have the data on what works best? To be honest, we have it very easy in that respect. Or will the Powers-that-Be think they know best and go their own way?

I'm with Brendan O'Neill on this one -

Dominic Cummings broke the lockdown? Good

The hysteria over his trip to his parents' home is driven by nothing more than Remainer revenge.  Etc. Etc. ....

Yes,  as long as you maintain social distancing and apply common sense.   Remember to 'be kind'....
