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

The care home situation has been one of horrible irony. Keeping people 'at home' is an understandable step to take during a pandemic, but when you're elderly and share your home with dozens of others, some of whom have had positive Covid tests, its just horrendous. Understandably, at the beginning ...

Re: Edward Colston statue removal,your views.

I love the ‘where does it stop, do we burn the city to the ground?’ Argument. To me it’s very simple. We do what we can to show that glorifying this part of our history is wrong. Removing a statue (that the people of Bristol have been trying to remove for years) is very different to burning a schoo...

This thread just reinforces my belief that there’s no place for politics on hobby forums. Take it to Twitter or Facebook.
Still,I suppose if Cov-19 hadn't happened people might now not be happy with the probable 100+ pages on the RIAT thread. :grin:

1630 today will be a crucial time for our PM. He's to appear before Senior MP's to discuss all things Covid 19, probably including his support for Dominic Cummings.

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

I've wondered about this for a while. Just what makes Dominic Cummings think he is untouchable, is there something he knows that the Conservatives don't ever want us finding out, because it really is starting to look that way. I was thinking exactly the same thing. He must have the British equivale...

Interesting. The total number of Coranavirus cases reported that we had in the UK by the end of 19-05-2020 was 248,818 including 2,412 new cases but by the end of 20-05-2020 the reported figure came down to 248,293, a reduction of 525 cases. Pretty sure there should have been at least over thousand...
