    Pretty much that.
    Anyone capable of reading (https://www.gov.uk/government/publi...side-your-home/staying-safe-outside-your-home ) will see the government don't recommend them for children under 3 years of age.

    I’ve just read that, from now on, the hospital data on Covid patients will be rerouted to the White House instead of being sent to the CDC... This move stinks falsification, they’ll just lower the reported numbers so they can say “Look, It’s getting better! We’re doing a fantastic job!”.

    I mean that really shouldn't be surprising to anybody, man is that deadly combination of clever and idiot/prat (how on earth do you spell that, they all look wrong!) :D

    Wait you mean the man who insisted his factory not have warning signage because he doesn't like the colour yellow could be putting his workers in danger...

    I'm shocked! Shocked I say!

    Ol' Musky has done something useful - Popularising electric vehicles - But he is an unmitigated disaster of a human being.

    It doesn't surprise me that he'd risk killing his workers for his own egotistical BS.

    Does Musky own a long-haired white cat? On second thoughts, he's happy to stroke his ego, doesn't need a cat...

    It goes without saying that Randox would've had MP friends...

    Small light hearted moment today.

    Area manager on a Zoom call stated, "Covid 19 has been a great success for us," then sat there in total silence for a moment as his brain caught up with his mouth. He meant we'd had very low rates of illness, very good feedback from the NHS about our infection control procedures and hadn't taken too much of a financial beating, but he still said it.

    A classic example of why you should not believe anything on social media, unless you know the source to be trustworthy. I'm no fan of Bozo but, he did not say they want to end use of face coverings, on public transport, from 1st of August.

    Now even websites have queues.

    When I imagined a post-COVID utopia where we finally move to everything being done online and no social interaction, I didn't consider this.

    Stronger even when together we're apart.

    I remember Suttons the seed distributor having a queueing system earlier in lockdown.

    I copypasta'd the wrong link... the perils of trawling through stuff in the trending section.
