    How is Boris Doing So Far?

    I agree but you know the Brits, they love to head to the med.
  2. I’m not stupid, I do realise the dog wasn’t the main issue. I simply added an also.....at the end because I’d noticed she wasn’t treating the dog nice either.
  3. I watched that. What a horrible, crazy women. Loved that the guy remained so calm and when she finally put the lead on he just politely said thank you. I also didn’t like that she was holding the dogs collar so tight, the poor thing was hanging and struggling.
  4. They are still processing applications but imagine they won’t grant visas until they open their borders.

    The thing I think many haven’t thought of when considering still going to Spain/Europe on holiday is the 2 week quarantine on return. Is it really worth going when you are then stuck indoors on your return, not even allowed to pop to the shops. Also, anyone still working will almost certainly have to take those 2 weeks as either holiday or unpaid. Employers aren’t going to just dish out an extra 2 weeks off work to people who chose to fly off on holiday. I know of some employers who’ve already advised employees of that and I’m sure all will follow unless perhaps you’re working from home still and can pick that up still whilst isolating.
  6. Where is the queue calculator please

    People do make mistakes but it’s how they deal with it that matters most. An apology goes a long way. The more worrying factor is he has lied. He said he was never at the castle but had to come clean in the end because he’d been seen and busted. He said the police hadn’t spoken to any of his family yet the chief of police confirmed they had spoken to his father. Only when the police mentioned taking that discrepancy further did he suddenly remember they had spoken to his father. He said he wasn’t at the Welcome Break services on the way up there but when it was confirmed he did stop there and buy petrol he said he might have but couldn’t remember doing that. Telling lies is a poor trait but for someone in a position of trust and authority, such lack of integrity is concerning.
  8. They are amazing things. Take care and stay well.

    Sounds lovely. I love a gin and tonic and love bitter lemon so I’ll have to give your mix a try.

    The behaviour of the press has been terrible, I certainly don’t agree with that. He did break the rules though. The guidelines are clear, when someone in your household display symptoms, you need to self isolate in a separate room and use a separate bathroom if possible. They should be away from the rest of the family, not sit inches away from them on a car ride for several hours. When you had it, would you have taken your family on a long car ride? I bet you stayed away from them. I understand there could have been a time when both parents were ill but that guy had every resource available to him. Had that happened, he’d only have had to ring Boris and say I need help, my kid needs to be taken to my sisters or something. That then would be an essential act, not lets just do it in case. Then there’s the trip to the castle which he’s denied all along and only came clean yesterday. I’d argue if he thought for one minute his sight wasn’t right he shouldn’t be on the roads. Even if he thought I’ll give it a try, why on earth would he have his family in the car. You’d just say, popping out for a quick drive so I’m confident I can see ok before we return to London, not let’s all pile in the car and hope for the best, unless it was a family outing I think he’d have been better saying I’m sorry, I understand why people are mad, I f**ked up.

    Does that mean they can all flock together and ignore social distancing? Key workers still have to do what they can to adhere to the rules although it is accepted at times it’s not possible. Sometimes at work I have to be closer to my colleagues than ideal as do many but we have to do everything possible to avoid it. They were not doing everything possible, they were oblivious to it. I loved the testing the eyesight bit, it was gold. I’m not sure I’m safe to drive so I think I’ll put my wife and child in the car and try it out. Keep digging I thought, the holes getting bigger.

    I think in this mad world we live in right now you should go out and buy yourself a nice bottle of wine and a packet of chocolate biscuits and enjoy
  13. You only get them if you have a heart attack. You could occasionally get them if you’re suffering bad angina as that’s a heart attack waiting to happen but usually only when you’ve had a heart attack. They open up the blocked artery. They put a thin tube through your veins, usually from your wrist but can be from your groin and when it’s in position in the blocked archery, they push a tiny balloon through the tube and it inflates in your artery and remains there holding it open. Incredible invention.
