    The worrying thing is that it’s current leading lights like Lisa Nandy who are reluctant to call him out, he is so obviously an anti-Semite but they are trying to frame it as a grievous lack of leadership rather than the fact that a racist was in charge of the Labour Party for a number of years.

    Despite the report’s findings and Corbyn’s utterances today, some leading Labour figures still can’t bring themselves to say Corbyn is bonafide anti-semite.

    UK Lockdown

    That’s historical, are you advocating a NZ style ban on inward international travel now?

    Just hearing Starmer and Corbyn’s reaction to the report, if Sir Keir is true to his word then Corbyn will be kicked out. A terrible indictment on a political party that used to pride itself on being at the vanguard of anti Semitism.

    I take it you don’t have a non flippant answer to my question Isca?

    UK Lockdown

    So a near complete ban on inward international travel should be enacted for the UK? Just like in Taiwan and NZ? Zero COVID infections as is the policy is NZ is a laughable proposition for the UK.

    UK Lockdown

    The longer this pandemic continues its looking like one of the least important factors in the fight against its spread is the competency of the people in charge. If it did matter then at least one country in our corner of Western Europe would’ve surely have seen a markedly different outcome to...

    Yep. I was only citing my own situation Ali, other lockdown experiences are available and not all of them positive as you say.

    UK Lockdown

    Not yet Ali. I’m a mere whippersnapper of 54, so if I accessed my ‘gold plated’ pension this early I’d take a substantial hit. I’m in the very fortunate position of having a few savings and more importantly Mrs Tavy is on a decent wedge and is happy so far at least, to keep me in the style I...

    UK Lockdown

    Europe in the face of rising infections slowly but surely shutting itself down again. It won’t be as draconian as last time but I think it’s looking like Easter before any form of normality returns. I quite enjoyed the last lockdown, but I’m guessing in the dark days of winter my enjoyment level...

    France doesn’t get a free ride on the human rights abomination on its coastline just because its takes in more than its fair share of immigrants elsewhere.

    No word about the ongoing clusterf**k on the french coast Elgy? The UK Government would deservedly be getting pelters if they were presiding over the disaster we are seeing over there. I simply cannot imagine the Kent Police allowing hundreds of single men (and sometimes children) wandering...

    Yep. I had a great uncle who made it through the last couple years of WW1 only to die of Spanish flu in Silesia in 1919. He was in his early 20’s.

    UK Lockdown

    It’ll be a bit like the seasonal flu jab, as far as I’m aware it only lasts one flu season.

    My bad Elgy, I thought you’d declared a sympathy for one nation Toryism a few pages back. You know the Tory party of Heath, Major and.......Enoch Powell 😄. Much misunderstood was old Enoch, ‘that speech’ somewhat obscured his liberal tendencies, liberal for a Tory anyway.

    The use of the Tory Boy label is yours Elgy, I’m happy to wear it as a result of my support for this Government, although I’m not sure you can expunge your voting history and latent Tory urges just because the the current manifestation of the Tory party is one you disagree with because of Brexit.

    I’m not sure the Tory Boy label is that flexible Elgy. You appear to be more of a Tory than I am for example.
