Re: President Trump

What I'm wondering about is that he's on a crusade about mail in votes, citing the potential for fraud & electoral interferance, claiming that if he loses this will be a factor. Wonder what he'll say on the matter if the mail in vote helps him to another 4 years in the White House, will he claim vic...

Re: President Trump

And Christ alive, it makes you realise just how old the next president is going to be. No youthful spark of enthusiasm or optimism, or fresh ideas. Just two crusty old men, one of them a bullying sex pest, shouting at each other. Only just saw the 'highlights' - if you can call them that - on Sky N...

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

I think the pm will go further at some point. But he won't be seen to clamp down to hard too quickly only weeks after telling everyone to go back to work and head en masse to restaurants for a cheap meal to get things going again. My gut feeling is that we'll end up in a nation wide lockdown that s...

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

Controlling the spread of a virus is like trying to stop water flowing downhill with your bare hands, sadly. If there’s no vaccine on the horizon, at what point do we say that’s enough, we all know the risks, and go back to living life as normally as we can? If you wish to live your life in permane...

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

I don't understand why people would choose to go in to a supermarket to do a full weekly/etc. shop any more.

Nicola Sturgeon asking for people to not book an overseas break during October holidays.

Can’t wait to get back to be honest - if only to experience first-hand the hilarious one-way system that’s in place around my office, which forces staff to walk 300 yards one way to get to a desk that’s 10 yards the other way.
