  1. I think it is the juxtaposition of Phil Mitchell and Harold Shipman that completes it. Meanwhile, in the world of honourable politicians I see that the Dutch media are reporting that the Dutch PM did comply with his government's lockdown rules, even to the extent of not being able to visit his mother for several weeks before she died. Tough times call for tough decisions and strong resolve, not weak leaders that bend or break the rules to suit their own personal ends.
  2. It's an incredibly narrow and naive viewpoint on the impact of this virus on people. The impact on the economy will affect just about everyone, but I suppose civil servant bashing is cheap and easy journalism.
  3. It's lead story on the daily mail and lead story BBC radio news (the right call the BBC lefties and the left call them rabid right). I don't think Boris will sack him, but it is very enlightening.
  4. At least we now know where he ended up after he was seen running out of 10 Downing Street like a scolded cat.
  5. I don't think the UK could have done a Sweden even if they wanted to, massively different population densities.
  6. Do actually believe what estate agents say? I suspect that the biggest issue is going to be what mortgage lenders do as a result of the massive economic fallout of all of this.
  7. Oh shit, I'm in Germany right now and have to go to the supermarket after work!!!!
  8. I don't get the point of this. Corbyn is clearly coughing but it is clearly edited to bring all the coughing together, a but disingenuous even for the likes of Guido. Who knows if he has Corona but isn't the video of a video call anyway, so he is therefore not actually meeting those people. As for the picture underneath it looks more like he (and his wife?) have just been approached by someone rather than deliberately breaking any social distancing rules.
  9. I think you need to change you bedtime reading.
  10. Can't vouch for any other companies and can I only go on what my sister in law has said about Hugo Boss. Seems quite complicated but as I understand it they produce higher price items in Germany and elsewhere in Europe, the logo t-shirt type stuff is made in Asia.
  11. My sister-in-law works for Hugo Boss. They have turned over the majority of their production to making masks and other PPE, sadly they are purely functional and not fashion accessories.
  12. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/peel-man-proposing-post-coronavirus-celebration/
  13. The civil service is very simple, you get a full pension if you pay in for 40 years. The earliest you can claim is at 55 but obviously you wouldn't have 40 years in.
  14. Come on, dilligaf did the university challenge thing twice and still only managed to get 8!
  15. Perhaps, just seems very disproportionate. Still, welcome to the forums, have fun.
  16. I don't normally pay much attention to the whole reputation points thing but how does Mr Newbie have +103 from just 73 posts? Looks odd to me.
  17. Did you screenshot all the other attempts?
  18. Ok, I did it on an answering as soon as the question and possible answers are read. I got 5, knew 3 of them and was lucky on 2 others. I await the usual suspects to claim getting all or nearly all of them right.
  19. With ineptitude perhaps.
