She was very sanctimonious in that video.Dreadful.
Not the only TV reporter with no real experience of the real world though
No, far from it. The intertwining of media and political bods needs to change pretty quickly. They're all married to a journo or politician.

Sorry dont understand your logic.

I dont agree with hiding away any more than you do. Strong and Effective measures now, will reduce pain and suffering later and will result in less hiding away!

The rate of increase in growth is of this new varient is incredible and needs to be taken seriously especially if you want to avoid further lockdowns.
COVID restrictions just begets more COVID restrictions. As DB quite rightly suggests you can disappear up your own jacksey reacting unduly to increased infections, there comes a time when you have to adjust your tactics accordingly.

TBH here, How many will frequent nightclubs etc? Cinema's yes but most on here are of an age where we go to work (or retired) then spend the evening at home, Any restrictions to meeting family members is where it would affect us most and virtually all my family have had two jabs and on the list for their boosters, It won't stop us getting the bloody thing but it's the best way to negate any serious symptoms, Plus I don't know about the rest of you, If I don't feel comfortable meeting up in crowded indoor places I just won't go, Hardly rocket science is it?

Tavy and I will not give up our twice weekly visit to Plymouth premiere nightclubs for anything!

Javid on the radio saying he doesn't know why Stratton resigned if the party didn't take place. Are the cabinet setting up Johnson for a big fall when the lie is revealed, or are they just incompetent? Could go either way...

I am now thinking that Javid is very, very lightweight too. Even if that party did not take place the video will have enraged a lot of ordinary folk. It is akin to Emily Thornberry sneering at the Cross of St George flags in white van man’s windows

Yes, I'd have thought it was pretty obvious why she resigned, which is why I feel him saying that might be calculated.

Just when I think my man BJ and his government are goners, up pops Angie Rayner on the news dropping her ‘aitches’ and barely able to string a coherent sentence together.
There is no viable alternative to this Government is there?
