I thought front line staff would get it first but now they are saying the elderly  - unless i heard wrong ?

The front line staff in hospitals and patients in hospitals will get the first batch as the Pfizer vaccine needs to be stored at a much lower temperature than the Oxford vaccine meaning hospitals are already geared up to store the vaccine. When the Oxford vaccine is approved that will be used in non hospital settings. All the vulnerable should receive a vaccine  by the start of spring.

Yes, great news this morning but the BBC were reporting a Twitter statement from Chris Whitty, which put a bit of reality & context to things. 

 

Whitty is reiterating what was basically said last week which is that for most, a vaccine won't be available to you until the Spring.

A friend that works in the NHS said he is booked in for his vaccine on Thursday, he said that a couple of days ago.

I see Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary has been caught out lying, again.

 

He claimed today that:

...until earlier this year we were in the European Medicines Agency (EMA), because of Brexit we’ve been able to make a decision to do this based on the UK regulator, a world-class regulator, and not go at the pace of the Europeans, who are moving a little bit more slowly.

“We do all the same safety checks and the same processes, but we have been able to speed up how they’re done because of Brexit.”

 

But June Raine, chief executive of the MHRA, said the approval was made using provisions under European law, which still binds the UK until the end of the Brexit transition period on 1 January But June Raine, chief executive of the MHRA, said the approval was made using provisions under European law, which still binds the UK until the end of the Brexit transition period on 1 January:

 “We have been able to authorise the supply of this vaccine using provisions under European law, which exist until 1 January. Our speed or our progress has been totally dependent on the availability of data in our rolling review and the independent advice we have received.”

The lies are just so commonplace across this rancid government. I hope the BBC call him out on his lie.

If you order a "substantial" meal, be it a Scotch Egg or not, do you have to eat it? 🤔

There was a nightclub in Sheffield, on Charles St...Charlie Parkers???, in the late 80s that opened on a Sunday by providing a meal, which was a small plate of chilli handed to you at the door, which was then tipped in a bin shortly after.

 

Looking back, I'm not sure which sounds least appealing, the waste of food, or nightclubbing on a Sunday....

.. and if you don't eat it, nobody can penalise you, especially after you've already had your beer!

 

Of course, you could take a homeless person in, claim he/she is your sibling, order 2 pints and 2 scotch eggs, drink the beer while your companion eats the eggs!

I've been in a few fancy restaurants in my time & there would be more calories in a scotch egg than in some of the 3 courses I've eaten - and paid a lot more for. 

 

At the end of the day, if the pubs you usually visit already do food in 'normal' times, than I'd say what the publican usually sells, should be good enough to be classed as substantial.  Even if it's just a chip butty.
