  1. Wire narrowly defeat St Helens 20-18 in a close fought game to go through to a semi-final game against Salford. Come on Wire, you can do it again!
  2. So, when everybody has been "infected" can we get back to normal? What's the plan here? 🤔
  3. A correction to my previous post on this. The theme tune for the William Tell TV show was also from the William Tell overture by Rossini, but a different part (and with lyrics by Harold Purcell) from that used for the Lone Ranger.
  4. Grey moment Latch. Your confusion comes from the Lone Ranger theme being "The William Tell Overture" from the William Tell opera by Rossini. The William Tell tv show had: https://youtu.be/HcfykK8Iw7w
  5. People are queueing for up to a couple of hours for a Covid test. Why?? Is this virus so deadly to human life that you have to take a test to see if you have it? I'm totally confused by it all.
  6. The only difference being that they are shooting the people who are trying to get out of the country.
  7. 38 years? Do-able I suppose 🤔
  8. Your last sentence nails it Obs. The outcry about Boris' actions from the usual suspects tells me he is doing the right thing.
  9. It's just a reminder that no matter how "fit" you are the grim reaper always gets you in the end ☠️.
  10. It doesn't matter who you vote for, the government always gets elected.
  11. Wow!! That was a close run thing! Castleford were narrowly ahead for most of the game until the 77th minute when Matty Ashton scored under the posts to make it 10-10, Stefan Ratchford kicking the goal to give Wire victory 12-10. Warrington have won their last 7 games and top the league, probably until St Helens play tomorrow. Come on the Wire 😁.
  12. Diana Rigg 10.07.38 to 20.09.20, famous for her role as Emma Peel in The Avengers and multiple film, theatre and TV roles. RIP 😔.
  13. Are we living in some sort of fantasyland where government ministers can snap their fingers and say 10 million people a day will be tested with the result known in minutes? Even the most innumerate amongst us will realise that this is physically impossible even if the technology exists, which it doesn't. Just as laughable is the claim by the BMJ that this non-existent test will cost £100Billion. How can they possibly calculate the cost of a non-existent test? Then we have the idea of "Covid Marshalls" being deployed to ensure that we all behave like good little boys and girls. There is no
