    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……….

    I don't think I've ever been so angry.

    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?

    I'm I missing something here. he drove up to Durham to ensure his 4 year old could be guaranteed care if he became too ill to do it himself. what kind of parent wouldn't want to ensure their child was safe? safeguarding was/is a permitted reason to go out. the most recent allegations haven't been proven and denied by cummings. whether he resigns or not is up to him but is it right to sack him without good evidence that he broke the law.

    No, the real surprising thing, is that no one in London provides childcare.

    Finding one still operating and willing to provide services to a 4-year-old with infected parents and with a high probability of the child also carrying the virus. I would imagine it would be very difficult.

    And driving all the way up to County Durham, from London, while suffering from covid19 is the answer, is it?

    Yes I'm sure if there is a second spike in London and all the parents load up their kids in their cars and drive around to all four corners of the UK that will be fine. At least their children will be safe, at least for a short time. It is after all what any parent who really cared for their children would do.

    His brother in law lives in London. There's no way they didn't know someone to look after the kid.

    No way they won't have stopped somewhere on the way, 250 miles with a 4 year old without a loo break? So spreading it round the service station.

    Then they went on a trip to Barnard Castle.

    Durham has had a spike in cases.

    We were told to stay at home whatever happened.

    farking hypocrites. They don't care, and now lockdown is over and they'll blame us.

    Don't worry everything I do with follow the new guidelines as laid down by Boris :) I will act in full compliance with the law and with integrity with the sole aim of fighting the virus. With Cummings as my role model I can't go wrong :)

    And you know what, if they'd have held up their hands and admitted it and told the country not to be so stupid as them I'd have accepted it. But they've lied and obfuscated.

    If you didn't go and see a dying relative because you were obiding by the law only to be subsequently told to use your common sense how would you feel? It'll haunt you forever.

    Four legs good two legs better.

    I just can't get angry about this. But then I'm old school, I usually fall back on simple solutions.


    Out back, big concrete wall, .50 calibre machine gun. Problem solved.

    One might regret that impaling on a stake is banned under international law.

    But he never used that childcare? He went in case he might need it, he said he didn't actually need it, so it was non-essential travel whilst symptomatic which was directly against the stay at home message he'd been instrumental in getting put out. Plus a trip to a castle at easter, obviously that was essential too, and lets not forget wilfully infecting his parents if he had used them because as you say the child would be carrying it too. I guess he did say at the start who cares if a load of pensioners died, didn't realise he meant his own parents too.

    If you're defending him I really hope you don't have the gall to be clapping for the NHS too, because people like him are why we have the highest death toll in the world bar the US (whose leader thinks UV bleach is the answer). We not only had the advanced warning of getting it later, we also had one of the easiest countries to close up due to being a farking island, yet we monumentally screwed up every step of the way and now 50,000 people are dead and you are defending a government endorsed plague bearer.
