Medical experts were asked if it is time to ease the lockdown.
Allergists were in favor of scratching it, but Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.
Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but Neurologists thought the government had a lot of nerve.
Obstetricians felt certain everyone was laboring under a misconception, while Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.
Many Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while Pediatricians said, "Oh, grow up!"
Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while Radiologists could see right through it.
Surgeons decided to wash their hands off the whole thing and pharmacists claimed it would be a bitter pill to swallow.
Plastic Surgeons opined that this proposal would "put a whole new face on the matter."
Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.
Anaesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and those lofty Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no.
In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes.
|Trump v Biden |
at 11:39 3 Jun 2020
Having read a few bits and pieces concerning events in the USA, I wondered who will prevail in November.
In 1968, after the Chicago Riots, Nixon got the “silent majority” to vote for him after Mayor Daly’s response to the riots. Daley’s response has obvious parallels with Trump.
In an interview with Playboy in 1990, Trump remarked on the vicious handling of Tiananmen Square but also remarked how they put it down with strength and how strength prevails.
Trump is a narcissist. A wrecking ball. Nero. It will be a high octane election campaign.
Do you think Trump or Biden will prevail in November?

|Brexit and FIFA Regulation 19|
at 10:33 6 Apr 2020
After Brexit, and the effects of Brexit on free movement, EU players under 18 won’t be able to sign for English clubs.
FIFA Regulation is there to protect players under 18. It bans international transfers of players under 18. There is presently an exemption for under 18s within the EU. That exemption ends for UK clubs after Brexit.
I presume the Premier League will look to negotiate a post Brexit exemption, especially given the finances involved and the hoarding of potential by the bigger clubs.
Would you like to see such an exemption continue after Brexit?
|BJ as leader. Safe or not? |
at 11:51 3 Apr 2020
Could the delayed response to the pandemic be the undoing of BJ’s leadership?
Obviously given their majority, the Conservatives are safe until their term runs its course. But as the Covid surge comes, and the tragic number of dead so sadly increases, the NHS battles impossible odds, as the economy and society suffer, and newspaper scribes sharpen their pens, can he retain his leadership?

Had it twice today. People starting a sentence with “So Yeah No......”.
Is it fair to assume it invariably precedes BS?
PH - “Paul, haven’t seen that set up before. Did ye work a lot on that shape during the week?”
PL - “So yeah no, I just gave the players freedom to express themselves”.
|UK’s future |
at 18:27 20 Nov 2019
I’m not at all in the know about how different parts of the U.K. will see their immediate futures or whether any such considerations are entirely dependent on Brexit.
Has the U.K. become politically sectarian, the division being Leave or remain? Is that what will define the election and the U.K. future?
Whatever comes of the U.K. or Brexit, hopefully all on these islands of GB and Irl will recognise the importance of a common friendship and bond. That even if Scotland the brave should take her freedom, and the island of Ireland unites, that a bond and common friendship and purpose will remain.
