  1. Why would you? Because we are all in this together. Because it against the law. Because the management of premises are responsible for the conduct of their premises. Lidl say this in their bumpf - But they instruct their staff 'not to get involved' Customer Updates - Covid-19 During these challenging times, we all need to make sure we’re doing our bit to help keep ourselves and others safe. With this in mind, we’ve put together a few things to remember the next time you visit one of our Lidl stores. please click here https://www.lidl.co.uk/about-us/customer-update https://customer-service.lidl.co.uk/SelfServiceUK/s/article/Customer-Update-Covid-19?language=en_GB
  2. Don't shop in Lidl , Chesterfield Road, Sheffield, or any other Lidl. They do nothing to promote mask wearing in store. Furthermore, the manager and staff there have been instructed by head office to 'not get involved'. I spoke to a customer not wearing a mask. He didn't take much notice and we parted without any further words. When I approached the staff and manager the above information given. Its my opinion that they are responsible for the conduct of their store. Their bumf says they are co-operating with the government coronavirus conditions - this is simply not true.
  3. Sheffield & Rotherham (not)parkrun numbers from 27th July to 2nd August 2020. (Monday to Sunday) Runners Runs 4 5 - Concord 29 37 - Endcliffe 22 34 - Graves 27 32 - Hillsborough 13 20 - Millhouses 8 10 - Castle 103 138 - Totals 18 20 - Rother Valley 8 14 - Clifton Park 26 34 - Totals 129 172 - Combined Totals Who's done the most (not)parkruns? Nationally - There has been some discussion and the most claimed is 50. Locally - Over 20 is good going. Two I have seen are in the 30's with one runner on 39. National Numbers - https://www.elliottline.com/parkrun/2020/8/3/notparkrun-stats-27-july-2020-02-august-2020?fbclid=IwAR1yhva4h8G2YY6GfR0K7_m1wxIGKpSnbAIksnnCQdJCVJPhBfY8TnGK4Wg
  4. The Tory Party withdrew the Whip from Charlie Elphicke as a result of 'serious allegations'. This as it turned out this did not include rape. Todays relevations do include allegations of rape, obviously a more serious offence. I want to know what are the differences between then and now. This will run and run until the public are told more about these 'allegations'. There is an obvious lack of consistancy here. Some people are tractable and will 'tug the forelock' when told to do so. I for one am not prepared to accept that my so called 'betters' know better.
  5. Of course everyone charged with an offence is innocent until proven guilty. Many people in similar positions withdraw from public life until the matter is sorted out. Charlie Elphicke, 49, the former Conservative MP for Dover, stood down shortly before he was charged in July 2019. He was in the same position for many, many months. He was suspended by the Conservatives when "serious allegations" were passed to police in November 2017, but the whip was restored ahead of a confidence vote against then-Prime Minister Theresa May in 2018. He was again suspended after being charged with three counts of sexual assault on 22 July 2019. Mrs Elphicke, a Conservative party worker for many years, succeeded her husband as the MP for Dover in the General Election of 2-19. Then the verdict was handed down and at that point , and not before, his wife said “Today’s verdict is one that brings profound sorrow. It ends my 25 year marriage to the only man I have ever loved.” Of course the Conservative party, their then leader and Elphicke’s wife have faith in British Justice. Maybe I am cynical but, the above shenanigans, IMO, show calculated attempts to minimise damage - which failed. Furthermore, was a moral stand taken at any point? The current scandal is another opportunity for the Conservatives to show us their moral compass. Not the guilt or innocence of anyone. The initial details are not encouraging with the revelation that the Chief Whip knew about the allegations a month ago.** ** Correction -- The Sunday Times reported that a fellow Conservative MP first raised the woman’s allegation with Mark Spencer, the Tory chief whip, and Jacob Rees-Mogg, the leader of the House of Commons, after speaking to the alleged victim a month ago. The Press Association said that Spencer had advised her to make a formal complaint. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/aug/01/former-minister-arrested-sexual-assault-charge Not quite the same thing. Why are the Press Association speaking for Spencer?
  6. ***Breaking News*** Another Naughty Tory - Its just like watching 'Mrs America'. Do they think they own the people they employ? https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/aug/01/former-minister-arrested-sexual-assault-charge
  7. Thanks for the above, although as someone said - Every home may be different within the Government guidelines. Those 'guidelines' are very sparce. The Government guidelines, as I understand it, are to be interpreted by the Care Home along with their own ideas of what is best practice. THEN Their system is to be submitted to the local Health Officer to be authorised! Then visits can start. The Care home looking after my Mum are a national Chain and they issue a weekly email and their latest indicates that they are waiting for Government Guidance. "I hope you are keeping well. Please accept my apologies for the delayed communications this week. We have been holding out for the latest advice from the Government in relation to visiting. Please rest assure that as soon as further detail is provided in relation to visiting, I will update you as soon as possible." So, In the mean time we are continuing with 'window visits' . That is us outside Mum inside and a window open about 2 inches, 30 minutes limit and a member of staff monitoring in the same room. IMO - The Care Home are doing well with little support, as it has been since the start of the pandemic. I current visiting situation needs to be clarified, but I'm not holding my breath.

  9. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2020/jul/19/transwomen-face-potential-womens-rugby-ban-over-safety-concerns This is a safety driven report but what of the 'level playing field' which gives any sport its validity If this is true of rugby it is true of the vast majority of sports. At last the pendulum starts to swing back to the centre. Oh yeah - Men are twice as likely to die of Covid19.
  10. She leaves it up to the Palace Press Office to organise her exposure to the media. They run a tight ship and Kate never (so far) steps out of line. She keeps her mouth shut and smiles sweetly for the cameras.
  11. They are conservative people who react against ............. (put your own subject here). They like it just how it is and don't want change, thank-you very much.
  12. Sheffield & Rotherham (not)parkrun numbers from 13th July to 19th July 2020. (Monday to Sunday) Runners Runs 4 5 - Concord 36 43 - Endcliffe 20 36 - Graves 29 39 - Hillsborough 16 27 - Millhouses 6 8 - Castle 111 158 - Totals 20 25 - Rother Valley 9 21 - Clifton Park 29 46 - Totals 140 204 - Combined Totals Numbers down a touch this week maybe due to the rainy weather. However, the stalwart runners of Clifton Park were not put off and logged 2.3 runs per runner. Highest adjusted* average (not)parkruns per parkrunner: Polkemmet Country with 12 parkrunners recording 32 (not)parkruns. (2.5 runs per runner) https://www.elliottline.com/parkrun/2020/7/20/notparkrun-stats-13-july-2020-19-july-2020?fbclid=IwAR0rdYzogq6l6xA0Gv2OX5FsC52qFgZKHwnqHNS-KRkRDBBW0GwhpHvZOts
  13. "Lewis’s chairmanship has paved the way for the Russia report, which was sent to Downing Street in October, to finally be released. The report includes evidence from UK intelligence services concerning Russian attempts to influence the outcome of the 2016 EU referendum and 2017 general election. Following speculation the new committee chair, who was widely expected to be Grayling, could delay it further or rewrite it, a short statement from the committee said it would be released within days. A spokesperson for the ISC said: “The committee has unanimously agreed this morning that it will publish the report on Russia prepared by its predecessor before the house rises for the summer recess.” . . . . .and all of a sudden Raab is having a pop at the Russians about influencing the 2019 General Election . . . . . and the evidence he produces of leaked documents about the NHS, was something that slurs Corbyn for using said leaked documents . . This makes me think - What else is there in the report that makes it worth hiding when a cheap shot against Corbyn is ingnored until now.
  14. First statues and now this. The country is going to the dogs. We're doomed I tell you, we're doomed! Seriously though. Its sad that the authorities are so insensitive to local feeling. But, where will it end when independant illegal actions are not addressed. - Punishment beatings? I kid you not its already happed.
