    If you're trolling, I suggest you stop.
  2. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness please)

    Yeah, some, and others who just know they have it because of symptoms or they have been in close contact with others who went on to isolate. I understand completely. I hate being bitter and angry, but other people make it fecking hard not to be. It's tough enough running a pub at the best of...
  3. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness please)

    Covid is ripping through my home town now with everyone dropping with it. The trouble is, a significant number of people have been coming out while feeling unwell. They have been shopping, drinking in the pubs all night, partying etc.. Some have openly said they thought or knew they had it...
  4. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness please)

    I would have agreed with that last year. I'm not so sure now. I think lockdowns do more harm than good in a lot of ways. What about all the businesses who will go bankrupt? The mental health of tens of thousands of people? I fully understand the reasons of protectibf the vulnerable and...

    What do you expect from the people who said you could only drink alcohol with a meal? They haven't got a clue. They never have. I feel some shmpay as it's unprecedented times, but some of their decisions have been moronic and completely senseless.

    No paedophile or rape jokes before anyone thinks of posting one. Should go without saying really but have to post it as I know what some are lik
  7. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness please)

    Aren't most reports so far on the positive side? Saying that it's a mild varient? I do understand that any mutation isn't good though as one could be like this one and another could easily be the opposite which I presume is where most of the worry is stemming from.
  8. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness please)

    I got absolutely nothing for the two previous lockdowns because I don't pay the business rates. Even worse was the ridiculous rules last December where you could only have alcohol while you were eating. That nearly bankrupted me. It would have been better if he just shut the pubs. I have...
  9. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness please)

    They announced pubs would close and we were entering lockdown again on January 30th last year. But we were already empty because he had that moronic rule where you could only drink if you had a meal. The first lockdown Boris told people not to go to the pubs on Monday then announced on Friday...

    Thank you so much mate.
  11. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness please)

    Thanks mate. It was horrific. Worse that I was isolating alone at the pub while the partner and daughter were at home. Such a nightmare.
  12. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness please)

    Those things may be frivolous, but they ARE life to many. People need things to look forward to or distractions otherwise their lives don't have any joy or much meaning. The amount of old single men and women that go to the pub or for coffee mornings etc, it's their life. They literally have...
  13. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness please)

    My first day out of isolation today. I am double jabbed with AZ and tested positive early last week. I've had strange symptoms, the first day just felt wiped out tired. Then a few days of random coughing, loss of appetite and just awful aches and muscle pains and tiredness. My daughter who...
  14. The New low (I.) Q. Republicans and Ted Cruz

    I saw someone post about the amount of school shootings and when someone from the UK posted a Dunblane meme saying that after the UK banned guns we have had 0 school shootings.. Someone followed up in reply with a 'fact' that countless more school shootings and mass shootings are prevented by...
