  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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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 am an inactive person as regards exercise, however i do climb up and down my stairs at least once an hour during my waking hours. I once worked out that over my lifetime,so far, i have climbed the equivalent of one and a half Everests. Somebody bought me one of those fitbit watches to monitor my exercise. i was so inactive it made a call to the undertakers....⚰️

  9. Can't beat a quick dip in the ea at Blackpool. thirty seconds and you didn't feel the cold, your body was too numb to feel anything. Especially when you were wearing those trunks made out of your dads old wool jumper. when you came out you dragged half the sea bed behind you like a trawling net.

There was absolutely no chance to social distance, so we decided to give it a miss. At one time all shops were limiting how many they allowed in but now it looks like that ideas gone out of the window for Christmas. This wasn't just a crowd, it was a M&S crowd. Bill

Valentino Rossi, 40 yr old Moto Grand Prix rider, tested positive last week, feels great but is obeying quarantine and will be racing again this weekend. paul Pogba, mid twenties, tested positive, no health issues, was back playing at full speed after a week. 97% of all covid19 positives recover with only a slight inconvenience. 86 % of all people who have died all had multiple major pre existing major health issues.

  17. Although this is strictly not Warrington, a couple of items of interest. In the "Old River" at Statham, a section of the River Mersey left when the Ship Canal was cut through are three sunken concrete barges, which my late father maintained were placed there during WW2 with a view, should there be a threatened German invasion up the canal these barges would be towed into the centre of the waterway and sunk, effectively rendering the canal impassable. Below the high level bridge at Warburton (erroneously referred to as the Toll Bridge) are a couple of concrete "pads" remnants of the foun

On my news pages i just report the facts as best I can with limited resources, with some very useful assistance from one of our forum members which is much appreciated. Sadly on my travels I see plenty of people behaving without a care in the world for others around them - I am sorry if you feel these selfish people are labelled as #COVIDIDIOTS by myself and others (I didn't invent the word) on social media and that I harp on a little about the conspiracy theory brigade. But if you had been on the receiving end of tor

  19. Y'all need to understand, Trump is on a par with all the great industrialists and business greats of the past, like Vanderbilt, Carnegie and such. All of them had various peccadillos, but they all got the job done. Y'all should finally realize that politicians cannot run countries, a guy who was a dentist last week, or has slept his way through fifty years in Congress, like Biden, ain't going to hack it in economics or foreign policy today. Trump is running America like a successful business and it shows, he's a 'doer' not a wilting piece of crap like Obama. Take my word for it, Trump

  20. Perhaps we need a Working Lives Matter movement to draw attention to the hard working unsung heroes of industry who turn up daily to work to help to create Britain's wealth. Not the captains of industry with all their honours but the ordinary shop floor workers from all sections of the economy. Not the well paid sportspeople ,not the gentry.

Confused, you are obviously an intelligent person, but you need to put the books back on the shelf and start considering crap outside the box, I fell asleep reading your posts on why Warrington had more cases......".. Obs, get off the 'politicians want to open the economy for political reasons' crap. For once, when your own personal fortune runs out, you may take the predicament of those who have been unemployed for months and more importantly, the family business owners who are never c

  25. Correct, which is why we were told months ago not to wear gloves in work but rather to wash, wash, wash and sanitise hands frequently. As for wearing face masks or coverings, well many are abiding by the new rule but some aren't. Guess that will always be the case regardless of what rules are in place. Have to say wearing a face mask for 6-8 hours a day is bloody awful though and I now have an even bigger respect for the wonderful NHS staff who have always had to wear them. I don;t know how them manage to do it day in day out. So for all those anywhere who are moaning about having t

  27. BLM is a product of the age we live in. They are a bogus organization born simply out of the fact that, in these times, the crazier your proclamations the more you get on tv. They have no interest at all in any dialogue, or in thhe preservation of lives of any kind, they just want to March and chant " Kill the police, kill the police" and maybe loot a little on the side. They exist simply because they can, they are merely anarchists using skin color to avoid being run out of town on a rail. There were around fifty blacks killed by blacks in Chicago this weekend over a 48 hour period,

  28. Not the only ones: Piers (the mouth) Morgan and opposition politicians are after his scalp (but he's bald !); so much for constructive opposition. If Cummings has committed an offence he should be fined like anyone else, but no, they are after undermining the Gov at a time when we need some political cohesion. 😷😷

  30. So where did they get the pictures from? If it was social media then surely whoever posted them must have some knowledge of who it was. or at least where the original pictures originated. No matter who it was they will have left some sort of electronic trail the police can track. Hope when they do catch them they arrest them for attempted murder.

  31. For the 1958 Disney nature film White Wilderness, filmmakers eager for dramatic footage staged a lemming death plunge, pushing dozens of lemmings off a cliff while cameras were rolling. Whilst lemming doe migrate they do not jump off cliffs, only idiot humans do that. A more fitting reference would be wildebeest crossing and recrossing the same river during their migration until a consensus is reached on which way they were supposed to be going.....Oh well that is the end of the Gnus, now for the weather forecast. Look out the window for the up to date weather in your region......🤭

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,

  34. 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

  37. Rewrite the rules simple: HMG has a majority in Parliament, it could change the law to allow immediate deportation of all illegal entrants into the UK and end the abuse of legal aid by allowing it only for UK citizens. If this requires reneging on HR Treaties - so be it; Macron has just reneged on a Treaty he signed with Patel, to stop these illegals from crossing the channel, it cost us £29million. 😠

Tesco, or another large chain, could well take the Welsh Government to judicial review and win. With the English paying the compo of course!

I do wonder at what age you stop becoming a younger viewer, i can only assume it is when everybody older than you has popped their clogs....🤭 I was brought up on a healthy diet of hammer horror films quite a lot got cut in those, especially in the Farnkenstien series when the villagers reached for the pitchforks and flaming torches....

  47. Bullies Looters Morons why are these people not treated like in Korea. There the police use water canon with a blue dye added. it takes weeks to get it off the skin. the police then round up any body looking like a smurf and they are charged with incitement to riot. a serious charge there. Here they just get a slap on the wrist at worst, that is if they are even arrested.
