My neighbour has been put in a coma due to corona virus

I am not sure any of these involves an inability to attend. Simply that the final attendance was too late.

I am 100% with you that there is a problem with underfunding in the NHS for many decades now. Unfortunately, the most significant proportion of the electorate remains happy with this state of affairs.

I think we need to be careful not to misrepresent the facts in order to overstate the case.

Sounds more like the issue is with patients being told they are not ill enough for hospital and dying before they are. Maybe the issue is with the advice given on at what point they have deteriorated enough for admission. Each case quoted so far has involved attendance by an ambulance.

In both of those cases paramedics attended.

The fact they may not have been correctly dealt with or that the carer who then subsequently called 999 upon deterioration may not have done so soon enough (how does someone determine at what point they have deteriorated enough to have gone from non-emergency to emergency?) is another question.

In neither case was the death due to non-attendance of the paramedics. Refusal to admit, possibly.

I know it is nothing like the same end of the scale, but I chipped a tooth last night and my initial thought was that if it was seriously damaged and painful would the dentist even see me? Fortunately it is a minor chip and not at all painful. I shall wait until this is all over before even attempting to contact them.

Are they true. I know of someone working as a paramedic who led me (second hand albeit) to believe they attend all calls.

Furloughed but taking second job

So, as I said, legal but not necessarily moral.

If he is really doing it for the good of those stuck waiting for a Universal Benefit decision and no other reason, I am sure he will donate all the earnings above tax to some worthy cause such as the Air Ambulance.

I am quite sure he isn't simply trying to suck from both teats of the Government, after all.

Ah, but he is "helping out" by deciding who else does not deserve any money … and getting paid to make that decision.

I am suggesting there may well be clients who you are assessing who could do with the work above you.

I presume there is nothing illegal about it providing your new employer is taxing your earnings correctly above your other earnings. Possibly not exactly moral but nothing illegal. Perhaps you have specific skills that no one in need of the money has. Is it a temporary contract that finishes when your furlough ends or a second job you intend to pursue in conjunction with your original job? Or do you intend to hand your notice in at the first job after you have taken all you can from them?

So, hold on, you are on furlough so receiving 80% of your salary from the Government and with your gained time you have taken on paid work from the Government to assess the right of someone without any income to whether they receive benefits?

Have I understood this correctly?

Is he a reader? We still have some work from school that our one (a little younger) is still working through. Maybe have some things he does to earn a certain amount of time on the computer games? Can he Zoom some friends or family at all with you as well?

Looking after them in the day while you are working is tricky. Without wanting to be rude, though, you find time to go on here!

That was a superb speech by Her Maj

I think they are written by advisers and presented in her own way - an awful lot to say for her delivery. It is very important. How much the advisers are political advisers too and how much she is directed on things to say and vetted by the Government who knows?

I think part of her wisdom is that she works very much in conjunction with the government. There are many little things that suggest she is passionately pro-EU but she has never said anything to directly contradict the Government's position. I am not sure her successor will have learned the same reserve.

Thanks, Phil. Shouldn't be too much cause for concern at the moment then. Unless he is always on here. Is he?

There is a good argument for her as she gives a different voice to the political one even if the words are given from the politicians. However, I am uncertain how well her successor will come across when the time comes.

If this season is voided...

Indeed, A very fair point. Voided would mean a new set of fixtures for a new season.

It would allow for one side to move up if the EFL so chose too.

Indeed, when transfer windows open and close would have to be looked at as well.

Time will tell what happens but it will be interesting what the result is.
