    I know the child of a key worker in the village is getting bussed in now, they haven't stopped the transport.

    A few weeks ago, I got a certificate/award type thing from work, after I made a post on our work version of the forum, which taught our staff how to sign hello, cash or card & thank you to our deaf customers. I learnt the BSL alphabet at school, but knowing extra words does make a difference.

    TBF, the 'lesson' of that film could equally be to commensurately remunerate your key workers, and make them feel appreciated.

    If the IT guy had been treated with the appropriate respect beforehand, the entire debacle would have been avoided - and an awesome addition to the tourist circuit would have been passed off by all parties.

    For the want of a nail, the horse was lost.

    Watching a Bundesliga footy match and at first glance I thought they'd let fans in and they aren't even 2m apart.

    Then I realised they were these.

    Apparently they've borrowed 20,000 of them from the Etihad where they'd been furloughed :)

    I see they're distributing those (dodgy at best...) charity bags still, despite plastic being one of the worst for COVID-19 longitivity.

    Right then, you can't get out of it a second time Cummings.

    He will.
    1. He will deny all knowledge
    2. If found out he will go into hiding
    3. Worse case scenario, have the laws changed to suit your Tory self.
    4. Ignore and carry on regardless, we already have your votes.

    Animal Farm is trending so you may well be right.

    So schools are to reopen 1 june.

    Should be interesting, many parents are too scared to send them back.

    Many schools wont be equipped to handle the new measures.

    Like the NHS , Schools have been under funded for years and it's going to show in a few weeks.

    Well I’ve finally realised I’ve been played! I’ve worked throughout the lockdown doing my own job and covering those of people isolating and those furloughed. I’ve obeyed the lockdown, I’ve walked the dog once a day and shopped once a week. I’ve tried my best to do the right thing, but after watching the lies and spin of Shapps & Johnson in defending Cummings today I realise I’ve just been a dumb F**k.

    I want to apologies to my mum & dad for not visiting them as I obviously do not care enough about them to break the rules. Apologies to my son for not going to the supermarket every time he ran out of Fanta because, let’s face it, a proper father would know it was the only real option.

    Well I’ve a week off and I now don’t give a sh*t. I’m in the car tomorrow to go on a bit of a road trip around the country and to top up my tan. I may pop down to London to join Boris and Cummings on Thursday night to stand in front of number 10 to join them in sticking two fingers up and shouting ‘ fooled you suckers! ‘ to everyone who has put themselves at risk during the pandemic for no personal gain! I’ll then join their eve of the great British victory at Goose Green street conga before we head of to Gove’s for a barbecue.

    Please remember to follow the new government advice – What Pandemic? What virus? Ha Ha you idiot!

    God I’m angry those selfish self-serving sh*t monkeys spouting their own excrement in a virtue less vacuum, morally bankrupt husk puppets rolled out with cummings arm up their ars*s. Boris Johnson lying through his teeth refusing to answer simple questions what a useless pathetic sight. A man without a single idea so adrift that his only hope is to desperately cling to Cummings’ ankles! Jeez is this the best we’ve got……Arrggh!!!



    rant…over….Breath and relax……….

    People shouldn't expect too much.

    It's not reasonable to expect Boris to fire his boss.

    And, without Cummins, who could save us from the unelected bureaucrats?

    Please remember that two dickheads don't make a right, when considering breaking lockdown @Sk84goal
