  1. When I went to Uni, which was less than two decades ago, there was none of this. Perhaps its not my generation demanding changes to suit them...
  2. I have many principles. One of them is to let someone explain their positions before critiquing their positions, rather than laying into someone based on their past and appearance. Yes, today's kids have principles. As you've undoubtedly noticed (and complained about) re: climate change, anti-racism, etc. We agree on almost nothing. That's not a surprise nor new. But normally you're at least a bit reasonable about things.
  3. See what I mean? I dunno if something's mugged you off today but you're being unnecessarily eggy.
  4. No, the problem is that you're railing against someone who wants to do right by the island and its inhabitants just because you object to his past, his appearance and his occasional bit of weed. And worse than that, you're now calling him an idiot for those things, saying his only chance of votes is "sympathy votes" even though many young will agree with many of his policies, and generally coming full-bore at someone who's doing their damnedest to be honest and open and improve the place they live. It's just a bit.. dicky innit?
  5. You know you're being a bit of a dickhead right? Also "clear heads each day"? How many of our current MHKs drink regularly? I know you grew up in the "reefer madness" propaganda, but you know things have moved on a little since then right?
  6. Only in this case it's an occasional cloud of irrelevant smelly smoke.
  7. I still feel rather sad for Tame Elf. I don't think he was a bad sort, but he was certainly goaded and led on by bad sorts. Ms Allanson, on the other hand, seems to be willfully a bit of a tosspot.
  8. I once overheard Shem Allanson (Registered dietitian nutritionist, Skype & online dietitian nutritionist, Gut, bowel, IBS and gluten specialist) claim that her IQ "went up 20 points" when she gave up gluten. Must have been negative prior.
  9. Dissolved 5 years ago, apparently. https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/06335868
  10. It's a wonder he didn't find any evil in punching his 20 week pregnant girlfriend.
  11. Err, she says "Some people have said to me 'it's like a two for one deal'". Which isn't what you wrote. The interview is here

    Lots of places do. And if you think that's bad you should try getting DV clearance!
  13. Imagine a Facebook troll you found in the bargain bin in an Aldi. In Blackpool.
  14. Really though? Agitatedly asking the same question that's been answered, and answered pretty well, multiple times already. Just comes across as desperate for a doom headline.
  15. That'll upset some dickheads. Good.
  16. Alf said £8-10m I believe. If you've got an extra £8m stashed somewhere can I have some?
  17. Hopefully we run out of unvaccinated people before we run out of public appetite for keeping each other safe.
  18. The plan that was written for a variant of the virus with a much lower transmissability.
  19. If only they'd had your unsubstantiated bollocks guesswork crystal ball in advance eh?
  20. Does sitting tracking the movements of teachers count as work?
  21. Imagine being against workers being paid properly instead of the fatcat at the top siphoning it all off.
  22. Like last time, many younger teachers are in school keeping it open for keyworkers children. Remote learning is being employed (at least in the secondary schools that I have knowledge of) via video calls and online teaching platforms. But I suppose we had been too many pages without you having a whinge about a teacher.
  23. I'm staying at home aside from taking food to shielding relatives. Which will involve getting petrol at some point.
  24. What use is petrol if your car is stuck? As you mentioned, the island is small. Running the tank down to ~30miles or so isn't exactly irresponsible, I don't think it's physically possible to be more than about 10 miles from a petrol station. I'm all for risk avoidance, but getting petrol and milk from a garage over the next 3 weeks is so minor a risk as to be irrelevant.
  25. ...but you advocate for having done it right after lockdown was announced, when everyone will have been panic-rushing to the shops/garages? Coronavirus doesn't know whether it's a lockdown or not. The risk was almost certainly greater rushing to get petrol before lockdown started than it would be getting it now.
