  1. One has to wonder if the people who complain about that have the same attitude when they go abroad for holidays and have to have vaccinations against whatever disease is prevalent in that country to enable them to "enjoy" their week in the sun.

  2. You really have got to love these burghers of Europe. With every day that goes by, my gratitude at leaving the EU is reinforced. I have never witnessed such petty & spiteful people as those who are entrusted with running the EU. Unelected Bureaucrats elevated to positions of power are not a good idea.

  3. Asp I think that it’s time that we quit trying to educate the Neanderthals ! Maybe having them locked down for a few years will be a boon to mankind. Indisputable facts, Florida and Texas ( God I love it ) took an entirely different approach to handling this pesky bug - no panic, no lockdowns and now it’s gone to the point where it no longer affects quality of life. Hospitals are back on normal operational schedules, the testing stations are closing their doors, every manufacturing business, bars, restaurants are thriving and there’s a smile on everybody’s face.

  5. Have had several this week alone, i always ask first how Dave is as i have not heard from him for a long time and if he still works there. That and ask them repeatedly to supply the error codes so that i can check them out. Finally if they have not hung up i ask them if my macintosh computer would show the same errors as a windows one. If that does not work then i start to engage in a lengthy description about whatever is aching at the time. So far i have managed to keep one occupied for seven and a half minutes almost a personal best.

  7. I know i am being a bit slow Today but what is the connection between tourists and illegal immigrants. 8,000 foreign tourists are just that tourists, they come here, have a look round and spend a bit of money and then bugger off back home complaining about the British attitude to "foreigners" Brits go abroad for a tour round, get ratlegged and then come back here complaining about the poor service in the hotels and how the Germans hog the sunbeds. Tourists are here legally,Illegal immigrants,by definition, are not,

  8. Think it petered out in the early to mid seventies. Was seen to be unacceptable behaviour by the new wave of safety conscious thinkers, along with British bulldog and conkers. As far as i remember April fools pranks went on until noon after which anybody playing one was deemed the fool and legging over went on from noon until about four pm when the schools finished.

  9. People are right to protest the stupidity regarding covid. One simple example, from what is known now, we could have had 40,000 supporters in Old Trafford six months ago. For the skeptics, wear a mask, take temperature at gate, have a 60 year old age limit and block off every other seat whatever, but don’t give up years of your life on another global warming, oh no, climate change, another ice age prediction. Instead we just ban everything because it’s easy and the result doesn’t come out of the politicians bank account. This is only one example, there are many others, no one under 60 sh

  12. All I am telling you is that very few people are worried about covid any longer. The fear has gone out of it, some of our friends had it, some of our extended family had it, our neighbors family all had it and the consensus is - no big deal. People are just living normal lives here. It has been proven and accepted that, to be fatal, almost without exception, it has to be coupled with at least three other major medical problems, diabetes, heart problems, cold, etc. Under those conditions you have to have one foot in the grave before covid is a real problem. I go back to what I have alw

  14. When the French magazine published their cartoon images, they knew full well that it would offend all of their large Muslim population and yet they went ahead and did it. To me this shows a complete lack of respect for the beliefs of others and although the results were truly horrific, the French had only themselves to blame. In the case of this Batley school though, the religious education class were attempting to study blasphemy, a difficult subject that can’t ignore depicting of the prophet in much the same way as you can’t teach about the war without showing a Nazi swastika.

  15. I read those comments Bill and I thought they were utterly disgraceful and wrong. The kids on the park will (a) not have been wearing masks as at school (b) not have been social distancing and (c) were not all in the same class/bubble with a high probability. The risk of spreading it in the park will have been much higher than at school. It is this attitude that if applied to primary school children lets parents say that they are doing nothing wrong but covid spreads apace.

  16. Not the environment, but green with envy over UK vaccine rollout. Von De Lyen is now threatening to stop exports of the AZ vaccine to the UK, if we don't allow them to share in it's supply; this from Leaders and Countries that have, not only failed to order sufficient supply in time, but have undermined the efficacy of the AZ vaccine, with now widespread vax hesitancy by their citizens. This, coupled with their petty bureaucracy over N/Ireland trade and UK fishing; just add to the impression that they can't adjust to the fact that Brexit isn't a failure and that we are finally an independ

  17. I heard on telly a few days ago a white nurse say she wouldn’t have the injection as she was worried about it affecting her fertility if she ever got married and wanted to start a family. The interviewer said that that nobodies ever said it could affect fertility to which the nurse replied they’ve not said it won’t either, that’s why I’m not having it. I was worried I might not be able to play the piano after the jab and I was right. Nobody on this planet has the answer to every possible question (apart from me) and to be scared of something that nobody knows exists or have even heard of

  19. I wasn’t aware that the younger ones weren’t tested the same but maybe it’s the case that if anyone in the class gets ill and then tests positive, the whole class have to get tested. I suspect that just one infected kid in school sitting and playing with others for so long could still spread the virus even if they were all wearing masks and following the precautions. Yes I thought the same reading the comments, but nobody’s going to join in and admit to letting their kids run wild. As for how many or how ill they got, possibly not many and not very much. Someone must have had someth

Good news though is that he is off oxygen now & feeding through a tube & apparently has a noisy set of lungs with which to tantrum. Doing well considering that ante natal advice was to abort just a few months ago.

  24. I nearly ended up working as an apprentice lab technician at Burtonwood brewery when I left school, but another job came along before they replied to me. I had a go at brewing a couple of years ago as a Christmas present from one of the kids. It was for a southern chain called Brewhouse and Kitchen who’s most northerly location was Chester. I though it would be watching them make the stuff but when we got there it was wellies on lads and get them sacks of grain down to the brewhouse. Just me and my drinking mate Pete made the entire daily batch while sampling six different pints of ale that th

  25. Whilst talking nonsense, it seems nonsense has made it's way into mainstream politics - In response to the murder of Ms Everard and subsequent hysterics over women's safety; the first Minister of Wales is suggesting a 6pm curfew for ALL MEN, in order to make public streets safe for women. In Scotland a new law restricting free speech, even in one's home, has been passed by the Scottish Parliament. Perhaps time we WOKE up to the real threat to our freedoms. 😷

  28. That’s true but the idea does have some merits. They said in Denmark that businesses broadly welcomed the idea as a means of getting back to normality a bit quicker and also it provided an increased incentive for people to get the vaccination. If we had this now, our pubs and other businesses could be gradually easing their way back rather than the stampede that a fixed opening date creates. I know I’d much rather sit in a pub knowing that everyone in there has a lower probability of being infected and if some can’t get in at the moment for whatever reason then tough, but life’s never be

You need to decide whether you are just trying to wind Stallard up again or you actually think the coverage was genuine. Don't bother telling us because I don't think we are interested.

  39. I’ve just been reading a report On Warrington Worldwide about a group of about fifty or so kids gathering in Woolston park after school. The number of comments it generated where people were saying leave the kids alone, go out and fight crime etc was incredible. What chance do we have when kids refuse to comply with the law then appear to be supported by their peers. Bill 😊

  41. I think there's a danger here of confusing the people out marching because they believe that their representatives in Parliament aren't taking any notice of the harm that lockdown is doing to large numbers of people, with the usual troublemakers who see it as a chance to riot using peaceful demonstrators as a shield. As for "mask wearing rules" - who cares? A minor concern when property is being damaged and people being injured.

Money was paid in each week and on the big weekend everything was paid for ! From beer and butties on the way down to ticket and overnight accommodation. what a wonderful occasion to look forward to for weeks before!!! Now sadly not only are there no trips there are no pubs either.😒 What a sad thing that this generation is missing out on such rich memories

  44. Seems the Mayor of London has jumped on the latest hysterics bandwagon by claiming that London's Streets are unsafe for women. Well, hang on a minute; isn't public safety in London the responsibility of the Mayor, so in effect, he's criticising himself. Such is the state of devolved Government in the UK that the contenders for office are so poor.

  48. The mask question isn’t exactly rocket science. Masks do work but only in so much as in reducing the amount of aerosol particles breathed in or out. Do they completely stop the virus? No, certainly not the flimsy little things that most of us wear. And before anyone starts on the line if they don’t stop it then what’s the point, remember, even outside your going to breath in a certain amount of covid particles but the real danger comes from the higher quantities indoors and that’s where the mask helps. When the virus first hit, the advisors couldn’t mandate wearing masks simply because o
