School meals part 2
at 13:17 13 Jan 2021

Sir Keir just read out the government guidance for free school meals to the PM, current guidance published by the department for education is exactly the same as Chartwells provided. Government policy and recommendation is being carried out by Chartwells, why is this now deemed unacceptable by the same government that drew up the requirements for the meals in the first place?

Another Dodgy Government deal
at 19:36 21 Dec 2020

Sorry if this was on earlier, VIP fast track system for businesses with connections to the government to be given PPE contracts, One PPE Medpro was in discussion for a contract before it even existed! "The contract had been under discussion “for a considerable time” before PPE Medpro was incorporated on 12 May, he said." How can a company be considered for a £200 million government contract before it is even incorporated?

Telephone/Broadband news
at 18:22 30 Nov 2020

Mildenhall telephone exchange has been closed to new exchange lines over a copper pair of wires being ordered, from now on it will be fibre to the premises and and an IP telephone delivered over the broadband, rather than the broadband delivered over a telephone line.

By this time next year all of Ipswich could well go the same way and everyone has ultra high speed broadband, and only have a landline if you want one. By 2025 most if not all telephone exchanges will be switched off. Well behind most of the World UK broadband speeds will finally get up to speed.

BT were stopped from installing fibre to premises in the late 70's early 80's, it has taken 40 years for the privatised BT to get back to where the UK was way back then.

Lockdown 1.0 - Following the Science
at 00:38 25 Nov 2020

Just watched this on BBC2, very sobering and quite scary how inept the government response was.

Puts into perspective losing a game of football (badly) and getting upset and angry about it.

It is well worth watching on catch up.

Klopp moaning again about two games a week
at 13:03 23 Nov 2020

Is it really that difficult for players to play two games of 90 minutes with a 15 minute break in the middle, with the ball actually in play 40 to 50 minutes per game, twice a week?

I think this is just another push to get the Premier League reduced to 18 teams so they can travel to more midweek Champions league games in an expanded champions League, as this is will worth much more financially to them than domestic fixtures. Or am I being cynical?

Good performance but could have been a goal or two down at half time, a few changes made at half time and the win was never in doubt, Toto and Wilson again solid in defence, Chambo and Kenlock both had good games with few crosses coming in from wide positions, Emyr and Bish controlled midfield second half with the confidence that Dozzell was behind them protecting the back four. There is a concern that on another day we could have been punished in the first half, but Accrington burnt themselves out in the first half and faded badly in the second. COYB's.

Forgot to add, Gwion MOM, he kept the Accrington defence very busy and scared to push forward all game, very good on and off the ball.

Player of the Month
at 19:47 29 Sep 2020

Just seen on twitter that Town player of the month is between Dozzell, Toto, Nolan and Bish, I really can't choose one above the others, and harsh on Freddie not to be put forward as well. My first thought was Toto but then decided I could not put one above any of the others, so a five way joint winner for me. Indecisive? No I'm just not just not sure.

Covid Test

Apparently, according to News Night, the only way to get a test slot in the South is to put a Scottish postcode into the system. Looks very much like distance to a test site is being used to limit the number of test's taken up.

Top work from Teresa May
at 09:41 8 Sep 2020

On the 14th June 2020 Teresa May tweeted "Today we remember all those who lost their lives at Grenfell Tower, my thoughts are with the bereaved and survivors who fight day in, day out, to ensure such a tragedy never happens again. We in Parliament must do all we can to help them, their loved ones must not be forgotten."
On the 7th of September Teresa May voted against putting into law implementing the recommendations of phase 1 of the Grenfell inquiry. She is obviously very comfortable in maintaining the ticking time bomb of another major disaster waiting to happen. Her thoughts for the bereaved and survivors lasted less than three month's!
