Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Looking at Dr Birx, to paraphrase JFK: "The Only Thing Necessary for the Triumph of Ignorance is that Knowledgeable Women Do Nothing" My wife made a very similar point when we talked about this earlier. I can see though how Drs Birx and Faucci might think that getting themselves sacked th...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Good grief! This is just a discussion FB, there's no need to try to win by extracting confessions from people. I know that I am much more combative, provocative and often obtuse on the Internet in real life. I hope that you're quite different too.

You're right about my political beliefs, I have never voted tory in my life. I won't argue with you about what words mean, but suffice to say that train of thought and mindset are not interchangeable terms to my knowledge. What I will argue with is your assertion that I said that the government woul...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

The government will turn on the NHS soon enough, theyre already making a start with that over PPE. If they blamed the fans at Hillsborough and the firefighters at Grenfell, they'll have no shame in blaming the nurses for this.

Re: RIAT 2020 - CANCELLED

The photo buses were discussed briefly at a FRIAT forum a couple of years ago. From what I recall, its an insurance issue that prevents their return. It was mentioned that there was a photo bus running at the time of the Mig collision and that some debris fell either near to or on the bus. There was...

Just for the sake of balance, only a tiny minority of police officers are monitoring the lock down. I was out with a police colleague yesterday visiting a few sex offenders (separate cars, shouting through windows etc). An awful lot of police officers are dealing with parallel epidemics of domestic ...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

You’re right that it’s a choice, that’s what makes it reckless. Your point about their economy though doesn’t seem plausible to me. It’ll be very difficult for any country to be prosperous in a global economy where China, the US and the EU are in horrible recessions, or even depression. That’s one c...

Good for you Dave, I’m not sure I could be as positive as you in that situation. It’s so important not to be paralysed by despair, but it’s much easier said than done. Take care of yourselves.

On my way into work this morning I was astonished at the amount of businesses still open. I saw car dealerships and hairdressers still open as if nothing was going on. In our town Bellway Homes have just started a new housing estate and all of the builders were there working away. This site hasn’t e...
