This is why I hope there is no blanket bailing out of business in the coming weeks and months. Not all were fit to begin with, in cases like this you are just prolonging the inevitable.

Coronavirus Isolation Help Thread
at 17:07 17 Mar 2020

I'm in Kesgrave which seems pretty well served in this thread already, but happy to be on the list.

Doing a lot of working from home now (otherwise I'm in Felixstowe) and therefore quite flexible round the clock if a 20/30 minute favour needs doing in the area.

Yup. Reading it includes cargo too but haven’t confirmed.

Anyone starting to get a bit edgy there’s more to this than we’re being told

Ironic that it may well be Zionists who develop the vaccine first.

I wonder, will Iran refuse it? What about all the BDS nutters? Think they might relax the boycott for this one.

Price of electricity....

Please explain!

Our combined is £160 ish through People's Energy. There are six of us. Washing machine and tumble dryer seem to be permanently on, we have two fridges and three freezers running, and none of my cretinous family members ever bother switching a light off.

Pleasantly surprised by a lot of the stuff in the budget
at 00:10 12 Mar 2020

Infrastructure spending is good. When the benefits of these projects are 5, 10 or more years away it's easy for governments to not bother.

It's only thanks to George Osborne and spreadsheet Phil that there is room to splurge.

I just hope we aren't in for ten years of this, which would be Gordon Brown all over again.

Is Royle still alive and kicking?

Anyway, PL isn't going anywhere until end of season at least.

Coronavirus - is it time to panic ?
at 14:07 28 Feb 2020

I say we let it run its course without all this shutting down and quarantining of whole regions. It's natures way of taking out the trash.

Practice good hygiene and don't go to work or school when you've got a sniffle.

Home V Leicester, Feb 2005:

I'd wish that Dion Dublin hadn't landed his studs in Shefki's thigh. We were 5 points clear at the top and losing him for a month kickstarted our slide down into the playoffs, and the man himself never fully recovered his form before moving on.

Don't think slowthai shenanigans have been discussed yet?
at 12:43 13 Feb 2020

No, I hadn't heard of said rapper either until he gained publicity for waving about a severed Boris Head a few weeks back.

Slow hand clap for the NME who decided this was sufficient basis to give Mr Thai the "Hero" award(!) - Just as he had attempted to grope presenter Katherine Ryan, and then responded to an audience heckle by throwing his mic at them and eventually jumping in to get physical.

Who'd have guessed he's a wrongun'?

Sajid Javid is gone
at 12:09 13 Feb 2020

I have no opinion on Saj, he's neither impressed me or annoyed me in any big way.

I know a lot of feathers were ruffled a few days back when Cummings cheerfully told a gathering of Spad's that in a week half of them would be gone. Must be related to that.

Also I heard Cummings has employed an army of foot soldiers to just hang around popular London pubs and restaurants to keep eyes out for ministers or staff talking to press.

Who is the scariest person you've ever met?
at 12:04 13 Feb 2020

Actually the more I think about it the more examples I am remembering from my time living in or near Glasgow. One particularly nice gentleman, on the day of an Orange Order march, refused to let me on a bus, telling me he would slit my throat if I moved, on the basis that I was 'a devil worshipping bastid'. He was holding some kind of metal object in his hand but it was obscured, could have been a knife could have been a spoon.

I didn't get on that bus. Neither the driver or the other passenger getting on could give less of a crap.

Who is the scariest person you've ever met?
at 11:48 13 Feb 2020

I once was acquainted with a Glaswegian chap who claimed to have served time after he cut off the legs (with an axe) of someone, after said amputee had assaulted his sister. Never verified it was true but it was plausible. Never felt scared though as he seemed to like me and I wasn't going anywhere near his sister.

Also, I didn't exactly 'meet' but happened to find myself in close proximity to George Galloway (in parliament), and later the same evening Gerry Adams* (Westminster Tube).

Interestingly, I got a really creepy and evil vibe from Galloway. Adams just came across as another bloke in a suit.

*It's quite possible it was just a chap who really looks a lot like Gerry Adams, but there was no mistaking Gorgeous George.
