Why is the UK using labs in the US and how much money is being diverted from patient care just to meet government targets? How has it come the the position in the UK that lab facilities are not available?
My neighbour who is in her 80's was struggling to look after herself after illness, so got herself a live in carer to help out, another neighbour was chatting to the carer and asked where she came from, Zimbabwe was the reply. OK, no not originally, where do you live before moving in with the neighbour? The carer replied I arrived from Zimbabwe two days ago, spent a day in London where I joined an agency and the next day was sent to live with your neighbour. If this level of allowing anyone from around the World with no regard for possible infection into care homes and looking after the most vulnerable has been the norm during the UK lock down, is it any wonder care homes have such a high infection rate! I suspect this is why my Mothers care home has not employed any agency staff since they locked the home down to visitors in early March.
I heard a doctor on 5 Live saying the UK strategy on testing is focusing on developing a test to see if a person has had the virus at any time rather than have you got it now, they hope to set up drive through testing centre's run by the army. I actually think that this approach will be more useful moving forward.
I listened to part 1 of the Clarke Carlisle interview on Under the Cosh last night, it was very interesting and an insight of how mental illness can affect anyone at any time. But most of all he came across as a really great guy, looking forward to part 2.
Their most recent accounts show cash in bank at over £1.5 billion "cash at bank and in hand", and still they starve the EFL of a fair distribution of TV income. Premier League greed just get greater and greater. Source Keiran Maguire price of football, well worth following on twitter.
They were a complete embarrassment tonight, apart from one very brief Ty Simpson chant, it was negative anti Ipswich chants and songs all game. The confidence was draining from the players and the idiots just continued, revelling in how successful they were in bringing down the team. They went to the game with that agenda, waved their bed sheets and stuck with it to the bitter end. What part of that could be called supporting your team?
Further to Bluebadger's post last weekend, the weekend stay in Sunderland was cancelled for me as my daughter had a kidney and pancreas transplant on Friday night/Saturday morning at Manchester Royal Infirmary, I really can't thank enough that unknown person and their family for this fantastic and life changing gift to her. It will be a long recovery process but looking forward to taking her back to Portman Road again.
Paul Lambert appeared to say to fans from the pitch today "support the players" or " get behind the players" which I agree with, we really need to get behind the team regardless of the score at the time. Get them to fight to the very end of every game.
