It's clear that Williamson is both incompetent (blame the person who promoted him) but worse doesn't want the education job in the first place and isn't putting in much effort.

Having worked with somebody falsely accused and cleared, but whose career was destroyed you can’t make dubious accusations.

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

Tommy, I can understand your first shot concerns and tend to agree; however, it appears that the first shot is giving around 80% protection. To me, what that means is this: after your first shot you can still get the virus but the severity of the infection will be much less, consequently there will ...

Derek, a definite +1 about the media; both the NHS and education are going to need a lot of rebuilding and I hate to think what would have happened if Corbyn had won - we’d all be being given that Sputnik vaccine the Russians are mass testing at the moment.

Consider how, if Johnson had actually followed the science and recommendations *and closed the friggin schools* in September/October we may not even have had this more potent strain mutate in the first place.

According to the BBC news website more people have now been vaccinated than have had positive tests since the pandemic began.

Find BBC Sounds - The Republicans: Trump. It starts with him shooting a Scottish caddie because he was called The Commander -in-Cheat, is put on trial by Lincoln and gets better.
