    How is Boris Doing So Far?

    I'm out of here. Good luck everyone. x

    How is Boris Doing So Far?

    Why is no-one defending him? Or Boris's (usual) lack of response? Are they appalled? Is it backing-the -wrong-horse-syndrome? Or do you not care? This is pure Nazi Germany before your eyes!!! You couldn't invent this.

    Grant Schapps at today's briefing, "At these times, we all want our family around us". Fine Grant, except your Government has been telling people they couldn't see their families for the past 8 weeks. Welcome to Nazi Britain.

    How is Boris Doing So Far?

    "Who cares..." About resigning "obviously not". The free rein this arrogant bastard has been given is unparalleled and dangerous. He's a un-elected loose cannon above both the Government and now the law. He's in a position even Putin must be envious of! But, for some reason, people think its OK. There's a concerted effort on social media to follow his lead and rebel against the lockdown, totally has my support, I'm out of here .

    All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others. If Cummings doesn't resign or isn't sacked, it's open season to defy any instruction coming from this Government. Something that's increasingly happening anyway. Any shred of integrity, and he'd walk.

    It's definitely starting to fall apart, they can't get anything right first time and are facing push back on virtually every decision they make now. They're useless.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    Has anyone been following his twitter spat with former Republican congressman Joe Scarborough? It's absolute comedy gold. Here's the BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-52748844 The BBC report also mentions his other conspiracies; Ted Cruz Dad was seen with Lee Harvey Oswald, Obama was born in Kenya, windmills cause cancer. Properly, PROPERLY unhinged that bloke.

    Stop the boats!

    I thought your mate Priti had sorted it?

    Perth or Sydney?

    It's absolutely nothing like that. In the the hour and half it used to take me to drive to Mandurah (yawn) the options I have here are breathtaking. I don't save my money for a yearly trip to Spain, we have a weekend (or two) away every month, like we did in Australia. The weather isn't usually a factor, it's just as much a factor over there as half the time it's too hot to do anything. I've never paid £10 to park. Hillary's is OK for a bit, then when you realise it's 1 of about 3 options you've got for the rest of the your life, and you've been 800 times, the OK-ness wears off. I appreciate that people might like that stuff, not for me though.

    The "New Normal"

    There was a piece on the news last night that Manchester City Council have started widening pavements and introducing more cycle lanes. Ultimately, they want a car-free city. Same goes for Liverpool, who I have heard moot the same idea. Rolls Royce have announced they're laying off 9k jobs (1/6th workforce) citing that it will take "several years" for the airline industry to recover to pre-covid levels. Just read a piece from the M&S boss who says that shopping may never be the same again, he wants M&S dragging into the 21st C. That means shop closures obvs. Retail is knackered long-term, it will be online or little else. There are going to be an awful lot of people out of work once the fall-out from this settles.

    Perth or Sydney?

    To be fair, I got the isolation thing. The main reason for me was that there are only a finite amount of things to do locally, then you're faced with a massive journey to do something else. We lived in Joondalup, there's very little to do there. There's beaches and Hillarys or travel east to Swan Valley and the hills, or head South (I had to stop going to Hillarys, I literally couldn't stick the place in the end). We tried further north a couple of times, as far as Monkey Mia, but most of the small towns aren't really worth the drive, it's just like driving for an hour then getting to another Yanchep, but usually not as good. You may as well just stay in the real Yanchep and save the massive drive. Moore River is nice, I rarely ventured further north than that. We just ended up in a cycle of holidays and days out to the same places over and over, I hit the wall after about 5 years. Over East, I imagine you don't face the same constraints when it comes to travel options. Obvs, the tyranny of distance still applies.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Unworkable. They'll be back in Parliament making significant changes to that next year. Well Priti probably won't be, she might be picking strawberries.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    No-one deals in real facts when it comes to Brexit, just Al Murray Pub Landlord "facts" .

    Perth or Sydney?

    Bob's Bar was the rooftop bar near our work. I remember getting stung for a round in there, $54 for 3 pints of IPA. Funnily enough, that's my main recollection of the place.

    190 IT support

    I would try Sydney or Melbourne for anything IT-related. The sector is much bigger in those places.
