|The Trial of Christine Keeler - BBC Drama|
at 21:55 6 Apr 2020
Think it’s still on iplayer, but I’ve enjoyed the first few episodes of this.
The actress plying Christine went to Woodbridge School so presumably is local, and is very attractive

Seems almost every front page has turned on them
They are in a mess with all this testing, or lack of testing - and not communicating a clear message now. The lockdown was probably too late, and now the death toll is rising whilst 'Stay at home, stay safe' is still the only message
WHO have been saying Test, Test, Test - 2.5 weeks ago we said we wouldn't be testing - and now we need to start testing we are way behind the rest of the world in sourcing anything.
Boris wanted to come out of this looking like Churchill, he won't.
|Nothing on the behaviour of certain PL clubs as yet?|

Spurs - CEO who takes a £7m salary a year, players like Harry Kane earning £200k a week - have furloughed all staff taking advantage of the Government's scheme to just let the Govt pay them their 80% of salary, Spurs to contribute nothing.
Newcastle - As above, whilst paying players £80-100k a week
Norwich - As above, but will top up the salaries to full by paying the 20% extra, their fans excusing this last night firstly by thinking how great they are as a club to be topping salaries up, and then stating they aren't a cash rich, or even rich club, and that it is totally necessary.
All these clubs will be processing a payroll in the millions of pounds over the last few days, whilst getting the Govt to pick up the tab for a tiny fraction of it rather than have players defer wages like Leeds have done at this level
Also, Bournemouth - Have informed the people who look after their youth players in digs that they will be stopping their payments at the moment. The people that run around after 16-17 year old kids, give them 3 meals a day, for the sake of a couple of hundred pound a month and a free season ticket are having that payment stopped whilst Callum Wilson is earning £100k a week.
I'm not on of those that thinks footballers wages are ridiculous, they are rare commodities in a commercially successful game and I'd rather the money go to them than greedy executives - but this is a joke - a 10% wage deferral from players would have covered these other salaries 10x over.
Grubby, grubby and greedy.
|How is everyone finding the new normal?|

I'm not struggling too much with it, family enough to keep me busy - and little work to keep on top off so managing that side quite easily
Days feel long though, hard to motivate without the distractions of going out at any point and no time pressures.
Started running again yesterday, will try and alternate between a run and home workout every day

Everyone raves about it, and I really enjoyed Breaking Bad, but it’s just not doing much for me
Just started the 4th season
Am I missing something, otherwise it needs to go onto the back burner

Everyone standing outside drinking, but standing 2m apart, being very inconspicuous
Shut now, still beer bottle in the road after a drunken argument
This is according to my sister in law, some people are just idiots

Joe Wicks PE workout
Watching a film on new Disney Plus whilst they dip in and out and play (worth a subscription for those with young kids)
And it’s only 10:30 and the boys are not tiring
