  1. I’ve seen workers outside having a break every day this week so presume they’re still knocking the last loads out.
  2. I saw a copper vaping whilst driving a police van a couple of weeks ago, not the best look!
  3. Those rolls are sensational (although they should be called muffins…)
  4. Doesn’t really tie in with this does it: I like cars and I like Clarkson - especially his resilience when he tells the simple truth as he sees it and is lambasted for having the temerity to express an opinion that is not a result of hivemind groupthink. He’s so lambasted that he’s had his own newspaper column and countless tv shows over the years. What resilience he’s shown by continuing to express the same dogshit opinions that have made him a multi-millionaire.
  5. My son reckons more kids are wearing masks at his school in the past week as well.
  6. Yeah I’ve flown through a couple of times recently. It’s crap but has been for a long time and you go there expecting it (although the last 2 times I’ve flown from there I’ve had a fast pass through security and got through quicker than I did at the Isle of Man airport). Thankfully not had to pick anyone up from Manchester, they have managed to make an almighty mess of that. My mum will probably still be expecting early 2000s level of service and organisation over here though..
  7. Completely agree with all of this. I moved over about 17 years ago and the airport was a joy to use compared to Manchester. My mum used to love using it due to ease, cleanliness etc and couldn’t believe we got free parking to drop her off. She’ll be flying over again for the first time in a few years this Easter, I reckon for the first time Manchester airport will be the most “pleasant” one to use.
  8. My mobile did as well as getting the text and an email, nothing if not keen!
  9. This is the link to the FOI request. https://www.ons.gov.uk/aboutus/transparencyandgovernance/freedomofinformationfoi/covid19deathsandautopsiesfeb2020todec2021?fbclid=IwAR1nNluFYNO1jTXn98HBdz72K7H0q6GNHf7jr1iDtvqtlLMNZiqpAjjDg8c
  10. Very slow work day so thought I'd do a bit of digging. It would seem the building of schools is actually Barrowmans foundation making a donation to Action Aid who have used the money to build 8 schools... God when is it 5 o'clock! ACTIONAID Over the past 4 years, Doug has been a major financial contributor towards the building of 8 schools in Africa; 7 of which are in Ethiopia and 1 in Ghana. As a result, over 3,500 children now have access to schooling and sanitary facilities. During 2017, Doug has pledged to get more involved with Actionaid going forward and to work with them on new projects. Apart from the above charities, Doug regularly supports local charities on the Isle of Man, where he lives, ranging from Cancer Care to promoting sport in the community for young people.
  11. To my mind she's suggesting that white skin is superior to other colours, otherwise why mention it? I could be completely wrong though and as you say it is a bit of a minefield. I don't think this is the strongest counter argument from her though: “Baroness Mone is 100% not a racist. Baroness Mone and her husband have built over 15 schools in Africa in the past three years.” Just needed her to mention all her black friends as well.
  12. It feels like having the grown ups back in charge.
