It just astounds me how the Democrats in the USA tend to perform when selecting a candidate. I don't think Joe Biden has done a particularly bad job as a whole, but he has a vast range flaws that Trump can pick at to keep the disparity in check.
I think there is a real chance that in four years, both Trump and Biden could have a situation where their health makes them unfit for governance, and the democrats would have done well to have backed a younger candidate who could roll with the punches, but not roll over to them- this is where Obama did particularly well in his campaign against John McCain.
Needless to say, I am terrified how the US (of which I am a citizen) and the UK (of which I am also a citizen) have successfully made it the norm to build a campaign based mostly on slagging of your opponent. Manifestos are become footnotes and the basis of our scrutiny revolves around a cult of personality.
I respect you have obligations to adhere to given the visibility of the website, though I must admit I find it a tad harsh as I felt the comparison between the attitudes shown towards the way we view people who show a potentially dangerous lack of judgement based on if they play for us or not was valid and not defamatory.
The going out to eat scheme is a bigger fly if you ask me. It sent out the impression to many that life was ready to return to normal. Johnson is far from in a win win situation anyway, we're fourth in the world for mortality rate from Covid 19, we were really slow to act in the first place, and now he's got a series of things to backtrack over, members of his inner circle not leading by example and he's doing a terrible job back tracking in one on one situations.
It is far too soon to say. We had an almost perfect season up until the wheels fell of, and Lambert didn't have a clue how to steady the ship. I don't think he'd have been able to stop the rot even if C19 had not have ended the season.
I don't think squad was really our problem anyway, it was tactical inconsistency that really rammed us in the dirt last season, and Paul Lambert failed the test for me.
This isn't a "Blame Brexit" reply, but rather "Blame Brexit Process" reply. A good number of us we're abhorred by the fact that the government was voted in primarily by that policy alone, and it is starting to become clear that Boris Johnson was highly effective as a campaigner, but hasn't really managed the fundamentals well enough.
This is an example of the "act now, think later" culture that has existed in our politics for the last few years and if anyone has any sense in the Tory party they'll get Johnson out of there and someone in who can actually construct as cohesive and measured cabinet as they can.
All of a sudden, voting for Theresa May's deal seems like it would have been the best thing for us all.
I must admit, I was forced to take more chances than I would have liked thanks to "progress" as it were. The difference between then and now is that now the government are being forced take a tougher measure because A. Their initial response was far too slow and B. They're relaxing plan was awful.
The going out to eat scheme was an utter shambles unfortunately, and while that scheme can't be blamed for the uptick in infections, it sent a message to many that normal life is just around the corner.
I do not see the new rules working at all unfortunately, as more and more people are rejecting the concept of lockdown and restrictions, with some even refusing to acknowledge that Covid 19 exists.
Although for a similar product, I did this with the foodi, and it didn't turn out too bad. Admittedly this was more of a lockdown forced recipe as I had ran out of a lot of stuff whilst waiting for a delivery, and probably not something I would have done by normal cirmstances choice as it were.
