  1. Would you level those accusations to those Greater Manchester Tory MPs like Graham Brady who are supportive of Andy Burnham
  2. Even the Manchester Young Conservatives are calling Boris Johnson a liar, and telling him to ship out
  3. I loved some of the comments: Hancock, Johnson and Cummings are also quite naughty and suggestive names with a common theme. Very apt for the Three Bellends. Genevieve Linnea, Upper Bottomcrust, United Kingdom.
  4. My app keeps telling me that I've been in contact with someone who has COVID-19, even on days when I've not left my home. Still, it fills my heart with joy that executives from Boston Consulting Group (BCG) helping the government set up and run its testing system are being paid day rates of around £7,000 - equivalent to an annual salary of around £1.5m. Still I expect to be accused of peddling the 'politics of envy'.
  5. I think Anne Diamond is quite good on the show too. She's had quite a lot of experience in presenting on TV. I liked Matthew Wright, though I admit he's very much like Marmite. I stopped watching because many of the guests were just awful, reality TV stars with no opinion, or z list actors with nothing of any note worth saying.
  6. Well I never.... I do hope that the authorities and his chums in Government remember that a woman in 2016 was JAILED for not paying her council tax. And she was a SINGLE MOTHER ON BENEFITS https://www.theguardian.com/money/2019/apr/12/woman-jailed-council-tax-bill-she-could-not-pay#:~:text=1 year old-,The woman jailed for a £4%2C742,debt she could not pay&text=In July 2016%2C Melanie,4%2C742 in council tax debts. If Scummings gets away with this, there'll be all hell to pay!
  7. I was reading that the government are recruiting 13,500 'Job Centre Plus work coaches' as part of this 'retraining' drive. This brings back so many memories of the early 1980s of the job clubs, and the utter futility of unemployed welders retraining as brick layers and unemployed brick layers retraining as welders. Then you'd have ongoing lessons on how to 'upgrade your CV.' I do think that the situation is better this time around in that it's not just the people in places like the North East, North West, South Wales and much of Scotland that are suffering; it's people in the South East as well. So national journalists at least have some cognitive awareness that those made redundant aren't 'benefit scroungers' and 'work shy'. The blaming of the unemployed for being unemployed was vile.
  8. This young woman was speaking from her own experience on the radio yesterday, so I can't download that. However there are many first hand stories from people at the sharp end, just check today's Daily Mirror. This from a consultant rheumatologist who is still suffering 6 months later https://www.bma.org.uk/news-and-opinion/doctors-with-long-covid An epidemiologist, who has researched 'long Covid', found that around 300,000 people had reported symptoms lasting for more than a month. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2020/sep/08/60000-may-have-long-covid-for-more-than-three-months-uk-study I will also add that more information is available via the usual search engine, if you'd like to read more about the condition.
  9. Except that it's being reported that many of the younger population who do get the virus, and survive it have a much reduced quality of health and life. I was listening to LBC only yesterday of a woman in her 30s who contracted the virus in March and now is severely restricted in what she can do, her life now sounds awful.
  10. Why the faux sensitivity? I wasn't showing any contempt for you in answering the question the way that I did. I merely surmised on the tenor of your previous posts that you have more antipathy toward the Labour Party than the Conservatives.
  11. Interesting then that the Conservative Party, the party which likes to pride itself on being the "party of personal responsibility" has sought to blame everyone else for its current woes, rather than look to itself and the ministers who spearhead it.
  12. True, he did say that Gillian Duffy was some 'bigoted woman who used to be Labour years ago'. Though to be fair Boris Johnson outstripped Gordon Brown by several notches in the haughtiness stakes, taking it to the level of blind class hate. Though I'm sure you don't want to know about that, given Gordon Brown was Prime Minister over 10 years ago, and Boris Johnson is the current occupant of that position.
  13. Our gormless PM doesn't even know the simplest of his government's coronavirus rules: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/live/2020/sep/29/uk-coronavirus-news-boris-johnson-announcement-latest-local-lockdown-covid-19-live-updates What a nob But he enunciated with such a plummy accent that the forelock tugging plebs will lap it up.
