The only way the current bunch don't get re-elected is if they perish.

He won't stand he knows he won't get in again. Mind you not sure a single brain cell can process that and arrive at that conclusion. And yes what a knob he was today .

Good news that they are doing more tests. I hadn't heard they were limited in testing, don't think others were aware either.

tesco's are now selling cookery books so folks know how to make a meal with what's left on the shelves,  it can't be as bad as some folks are claiming because there is still stuff in the gluten free and vegetarian sections.

There's £5M+ saved straight away. How many doctors and testing kits can we afford now?

‘Fast and Fluid’ is all I keep hearing from the ministers at the daily press conferences.

Dare I ask why you think that is wrong?.

We have family working there and there is enough to worry about for them and us as parents without the abuse staff are getting. It will get far worse when ignorant people try to get in to see patients even after being told only in extreme cases will that be allowed. There needs to be strict security/ FFS you see bouncers at pub, club and even restaurant doors these days.

 edit to ask that maybe you are saying they should be, but aren't ?

Stories making the rounds of people arriving at airport and taking cabs to the office instead of going home. How is the self isolation of arrivals enforced / checked? 

Can confirm this has happened.

If you know that for a fact, it is your duty to report what you know.

I would have no hesitation reporting someone who  (now) by law HAS to self isolate and doesn't.

When this virus takes hold, it will be spread by the same selfish idiots that think they know better.

Dob them in and the taxi drivers involved too.

Any idea if the mobile testing involves someone coming to your house.

 

Many who are self isolating  may not be well.enough to drive and cannot take a taxi.

There's a lot already instructed to work from home and doing so. Interviews and a lot of contact with the general public suspended until at least April 14th.

ETA. TK Maxx to close doors now, "for the foreseeable future".

They did finally get to speak.

Howard is really chippy, basically having a go at the public about everything.

Unfortunately for us mere peasants Quayle wasn't made of leadership material in the good times, now that the shit has hit the fan in so many ways he's shown that he's an utter fuckwit...he's at best a low level shitkicker in his non-MHK every day role with friends around him from the farming community with a combined IQ that would struggle to reach three digits.

Edited to add that I have the utmost respect for the decent farmers in our community,  they do the most excellent job providing food for us all, however, there are farmers on this Island of ours that are complete wankers.
