    Only because theres been a couple of mentions of it — I’ve had a test, I had it at 13:30 on Friday 15th at Preston College at a Drive-Thru after being in close contact for a decent period of time with someone who had spent an afternoon in Burnley A&E. I’m entitled to a test because of the industry I work in. I got a negative result back via text at 22:30 the following day. I’ve called the Government out plenty of times during this crisis, but arranging a test — booked on Wednesday, test on Friday, plenty of time options — was extremely simple and easy to do. The Drive-Thru itself seemed to be ran by the Army, it was very simple and felt very safe, car windows up at all times and communicating by calling attendants mobile numbers. Doing a self test is tough, you have to rub your tonsils with a swab for 15 seconds then put the same swab 2 inches up your nostril for 10 seconds. Neither of which are enjoyable but the test explains exactly how to do it. Basically, the Drive-Thru I went to was very good, easy to arrange and quick to get a result back.

    I haven’t and won’t watch this. But how this lot treat animals is disgraceful to me. A concerning lack of compassion.

    As far as I’m concerned, if you’re a Rovers fan, your German team is Hertha. Blue and white home kit, red and black away kit.

    It’s quite accurate. The land was previously owned by a women’s refuge.

    “Dear Boris, Please come and tell the public you lied. Regards, Keir.” It can’t be fun going against the former Head of the CPS. In my opinion he’s going to have Boris in circles.

    Not sure if this has been brought up yet, but I work in advertising, here’s two direct extracts from a popular playbook... “Green gives a feeling of safety. Proceed. Continue. It links directly to the environment and financial sector.” “Red symbolises danger and evokes strong emotions especially in determination.”

    I’ve got most of my info from podcasts so far I admit — but from what I’ve seen and heard, I believe this to be the case too. Coronavirus attacks and multiplied on Ace2 protein cells, most prominent in the old and overweight. Smokers seem to have LESS Ace2 cells because smoking kills them. For a respiratory virus it’s quite remarkable, if true.

    In other news here’s a picture of my local MP at a street party this afternoon. Didn’t look very socially distant to me, however as an MP I’ll take his word for it that this is allowed

    I understand you’re trying to be ironic but I think this is very distasteful.

    If he goes balls out the media will screw him. He’s very clearly — in my opinion — wrapping the government up in false promises, failed targets and ‘should have done better’. Once the worst of this is over he will go for them on everything they’ve failed on.
