    Assuming Starmer doesn’t give him a shadow job old Jezza can go back to being a backbench left wing nut job.

    Yes, everything is going swimmingly in the EU, more toilet rolls than the UK, more testing than the UK, oh and more people infected and sadly dead in Italy and Spain than the UK. I feel sadness for the people of Bergamo. The old city is beautiful and has some excellent restaurants. Well worth taking the fenicular railway up to see it should you ever visit.

    I may be 67 but it doesn’t mean I’m past it.

    Poor old Billsh1te can’t forgive Boris for ‘getting Brexit done’. It made his years of ranting about how it would never happen show him to be an arrogant to$$er who actually knows pretty much FA on whatever topic he spews his bile.

    I would be amazed when this is all over if there isn’t an increase in income tax rates of 1 or 2% ring fenced for the NHS.

    What an utter disgrace some of you lot are using a medical worldwide crisis to try and point score. The government are doing a creditable job managing the situation. When it is all over it will be interesting to compare mortalities as a % of population to judge how well covid-19 has been managed bu the western nations. d

    Interesting correlation between those bashing Johnson and those who are remoaners. The current crisis is a God send for those bleating remoaners to bash Johnson for having the temerity to actually Get Brexit Done The government are doing a great job and are keeping the death toll down, tragic as each death is for those involved, despite the actions of some to ignore the restrictions in place.

    BAT is not an illegal organisation so being a consultant for it is not a crime either. Whether she remains Home Secretary or not is another issue that her role as a BAT consultant has nothing to do with. You might not like her but then you didn’t like Brexit and spent several years abusing posters on this forum who disagreed with you. Remind us how that ended.

    I certainly won’t be complaining as the government now has no choice. It’s first priority is to protect its citizens from enemies foreign and internal. The government has tried reasoned persuasion and now they have to take actions to protect some of the people from themselves. Full lockdown with online passes to download if you want to leave your home giving details of destination and reason for travel. Substantial fines for those ignoring the lockdown including detention if necessary.

    I would much rather have a government that prefers reasoned persuasion to authoritarian dikta until that becomes necessary in the last resort. To read some the comments on here would people really prefer the Big Brother approach? Italy and Spain have a much higher death rate currently than the UK. Some claim their health systems are better than the NHS so why is this? Italy are three weeks ahead of us on the curve it is said yet that is not the case for Spain so far as I’m aware. Germany’s mortality rate is lower than anyones. It is clear that there is not going to be a single approach that works effectively for all. As individuals we can control our own behaviour in order to try and remain healthy and the it is in the laps of the Gods. Any death is a catastrophe for those concerned yet more people die every year from seasonal flu even with a seasonal vaccine being available. Keep well everyone and let’s hope we see the end of this pandemic by the end of the summer.
