    Come on Gumboots, it’s an injection. It’s over in a minute. Think of all the people who literally have thousands during their lifetime and never complain. Be strong and just do it.

    Coronavirus

    Hancock telling Marr that over 200,000 people are being tested every day. The governments own figures show only 82000 people tested every day. My belief is that they have never tested 100,000 people in a day yet.

    @philipl youre kidding me surely? Brexiteers now in favour of Parliament being consulted about Covid decisions? The same Brexiteers who illegally shut Parliament out of the brexit debate? What a nerve!

    Coronavirus

    I was reading Matthew Pariss in the times this morning and he was talking about exactly that. “It would help if our PM, who admitted yesterday that we are in a second wave, would tell us where we’re trying to get to in this pandemic. “Conquering” the virus? Suppressing it until a vaccine comes along? Or learning to live with it? The health secretary and perhaps his medical advisers seem to imply the first, sometimes the second. Some medical/scientific opinion (see the recent discussion by Peter Doshi in the latest edition of The BMJ) seems at least to contemplate the third.” Its a fair point. If the electorate can’t understand what the government are trying to achieve, how can they trust their judgement?

    They’ve lost control again haven’t they.

    Yes, we’ll. It was daft to say I only think global Covid comparisons can be made because I want to criticise the government.

    Your ultimate aim isn’t to show all the governments failings. You can’t have comparisons with other countries if you want to do that.

    Well I do think we should look at how other countries have approached the pandemic and how successful their attempts at saving the lives of their people has been. I can only think of one reason why you wouldn’t do that.

    Season Tickets 2020-21

    It’s really sad reading this thread. Obviously the club are in desperate need of income - and yes the clubs future could well be in the balance if the owners pull the plug. So it’s understandable that the club seeks to bring in as much money as it possibly can. However.... as much as Waggott is attempting to do that, he is - in my opinion - completely misunderstanding how football fans from the poorer areas of the country think. They aren’t going to pay more money for a product that might not arrive, so in the short term the club will lose out. That’s a big enough problem in itself, but on top of that any fans he loses now, he could lose permanently. Once fans stop attending they don’t often return. So his judgement on this is out, in just about every way. Short term and long term, he’s put the club at even more risk that they were before he put his oar in.

    It’s a brilliant video though, really good to see. Somehow it’s a bit different from similar football videos showing similar celebrations.

    and when I’ve recently been saying that brexiteers don’t like anyone who isn’t “English” to have any influence in our affairs - even if it’s to our benefit - this is why. Even the Scots, Welsh and particularly the IRISH lately get met with the same message....... “who cares what you think, youre not one of us.” ingerland, ingerland, ingerland. Global brexit etc, etc.

    I’m not pursuing this any more Chaddy, you’ll be pleased to know. It’s off topic and it’s impossible to debate with you.

    You are hard work. I didn’t say he was right, I said he wasn’t lieing - as your government does on a daily basis with your full approval.

    The leader of south ribble borough council addressing residents concerns about testing capacity. ” Statement from Leader of South Ribble Borough Council, Paul Foster in relation to COVID19 testing capacity in the borough “The facts are stark in that the testing capacity is currently woefully inadequate to meet the demand. Government must stop, please, advising otherwise as it is sending out a wholly inaccurate, confusing message to people already experiencing huge stress with either COVID symptoms, ill children, self-isolation or the inability to work. https://www.southribble.gov.uk/leader-statement-re-Covid-testing-16-september-2020?fbclid=IwAR3wgSo0ygBtMF5S7LGx3ToQDwC6tpGlOllvQyIglOavLQOW0inaFGYH5p0

    It’s exactly what I said. If you state or back something that you believe is right, then you aren’t lieing.

    Independant inquiries, why wouldn’t I trust them? I won’t ever stop people like yourself throwing the “war criminal” accusation at him, but I’m just pointing out that rightly, he’s never been found guilty of doing anything illegal.

    That takes some untangling Chaddy. I’m not sure what point you’re trying to make about the internal markets bill, but there is a difference between you and me as to whether lies are acceptable or whether it’s right to break international law. Blair was never found guilty of lieing over WMD’s even after was it four enquiries? It was the American defence forces who accused the Iraqis of having them. you know as much about the brexit negotiations as me or Gav - nothing.
