    I can just see you, huddled in front of your TV, slavering down your chin every time some public school socialist with a microphone has a go at the government. You don't give a shit whether it's justified or not, so long as it makes you feel they're getting a dig in at those f*cking toaries. One thing this crisis has done is to make malcontents like you stand out even more starkly.😂


    You are beyond the pale! You made no reply to my points, you just went off on one of your usual rants. You are the crazy bigot who is looking forward to riots in the street and the army shooting people to "improve the gene pool".

    Coronovirus is a crisis, but the tangents the BBC go off on are often not helpful and wrong. No country was prepared for this and our response to date has been proportionate and responsible. The slowly increasing curve that the specialists and Gov needed is being met and that means the NHS has not been swamped. The BBC's sniping is not a help to anyone, least of all themselves.

    As long as we are in a free society someone has got to question what the Government tells us, both UK and Scottish. Nick Hancock stated that the NHS has 12000 ventilators, that was not the case we only have 8000 which the UK Government eventually admitted. Also the exaggerations around the supply of PPE being made by both governments was questioned which seems to be being remedied now.

    Live programmes correct but otherwise depends when recorded.

    I'm talking about all programmes, like old films for example. I need help, I might pop round to William and Kate's after this virus "blows over".

    I viewed it a a strictly rhetorical question but you're obviously spot on. 👍

    Your hatred of all things SNP gets in the way of what is actually being said. Catherine Calderwood is advising exactly the same advice as the UK Government. Indeed Jason Leitch has become UK popular because of his down to earth manner.

    But yes, the BBC are looking for any excuse to talk up any issue into a crisis. I hope the Govt follow through on much needed licencing reform as they are no longer a national asset. 

    Coronavirus  is a crisis. Its not wartime yet where the first casualty is truth.

    This goes on about Ventilators. There is no shortage of them. If the situation worsens considerably over the next month it may become an issue, but at the moment the public and private capacity is meeting the nee

    Eh?  I think the shortage of ventilators is a major issue. I'm not blaming anyone, but as the rate of infection starts to accelerate we will see a huge increase in the death rate if we do not increase the number of ventilators available.

    Those staffers don't live at #10 though, do they ?  "Household members" I take to mean those living in the property - though your version is actually better preventatively !

    His girlfriend stayed there. Now she has gone. I would think that some of the staff stay there permanently. But as you suggest they have all been exposed to infection so should stay at home whether it is no 10 or their own homes, certainly should not be travelling between no 10 and wherever.

  8. if you live with others and you are the first in the household to have symptoms of coronavirus, then you must stay at home for 7 days, but all other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.



    Doesn't this mean that all staff at No10 including Dominic Cummings should self-isolate for 14 days?

    Apparently Johnston's pregnant girlfriend is self-isolating elsewhere in London.

  9. Got a laugh today. I was standing in the queue outside the pharmacists to collect my wife's prescription. As I slowly neared the entrance the lassie in front of me exclaimed "I thought this was the queue for Tesco's!". Tesco's is about 50 yards from the pharmacy and there is no queue for that.

  10. Just back from my local supermarket and am happy to report it was well stocked and customers and staff were being pleasant to one another. Restricting people to no more than 3 items of the same type seems to be working. I may go out for a walk or a cycle later on ☺️.
