Everyone to get a detached house under the Rule of Rollo.


LaGooner Report 30 Dec 2020 13:35

I bl**dy wish :-|

Rollo lives in a terraced house.


LaGooner Report 30 Dec 2020 16:48

I bet it's not a small one on a council estate though

This doesn't bode well - Boris is to address the nation at 8 pm!


nameslessone Report 4 Jan 2021 15:30

Scotland has been put into total lockdown from midnight tonight.


Andysmum Report 4 Jan 2021 15:31

Here in Scotland Nicola Sturgeon is telling us that we are all going back into full lockdown (as in March) from midnight tonight. Schools are all staying shut until 1st Feb and vaccinations are being done as quickly as possible.


nameslessone Report 4 Jan 2021 16:36

I thought I’d seen a comment about the Vaccine not working against the South African mutant strain. But I can’t find it now.

Worst thing is the advise about not drinking alcohol around the time of the jab!


nameslessone Report 5 Jan 2021 15:40

Boris, Witty and Vallance are doing yet another press conference at 5 pm.

What have they got up their sleeves this time ?


AnninGlos Report 5 Jan 2021 17:01

I had not heard this, I wonder what has changed


AnninGlos Report 7 Jan 2021 10:26

And looks like yet another one 5pm today. :-(


nameslessone Report 7 Jan 2021 10:28

Thanks Ann. I knew they said there would be one but hadn't got around to checking the time.


nameslessone Report 11 Jan 2021 11:44

Matt Hancock is doing one today. I presume it will be at 5.


AnninGlos Report 11 Jan 2021 11:53

I have to admit I now watch and listen to the main bits but when it gets to the press I turn over to watch pointless. I think there is a limit to doom and gloom I can take and it is eaven worse if we also have Whitty and Valance.

In th ‘old’ days the best question was usually the last one from a local paper. The earlier questions were usually a repeat of an even earlier one - these top journalists seem unable to think on their feet.


nameslessone Report 12 Jan 2021 13:02

Seems that Priti Patel is going to give us all a ‘behave’ lecture at 5 pm today.

If only people would follow the rules !


RolloTheRed Report 12 Jan 2021 13:25

The horses have bolted and are well away down the Nine Mile Ride.
Any amount of slamming stable doors will make little difference.
What would be of interest is the stock of vaccine actual and in the pipeline rather than orders and promises promises.
Journos often ask these questions at press conf, on Sky News, Newsnight etc and the hapless interviewee wriggles and wriggles but never answers the question as put.

Evacuation of Isle of Wight covid patients to the mainland is under consideration.


nameslessone Report 12 Jan 2021 13:48

It is not unusual for patients in St Marys to be transferred to the mainland.


JoyLouise Report 12 Jan 2021 14:01

Behave lecture from Patel my a**e - in the gist of the Royle patriarch!

What a shower our government ministers are!

They won't even back the police who issued fines to the two moaning minnies who drove (not walked, cycled or ran) five miles to meet up with each other over a coffee and a walk.

It's looking ever more likely that we have the government we deserve when you see this happening.
