    No, no, no, apparently everything is going well, it's been a great success and not having test and trace running effectively in no way affects infection rates.

    Not like city centres all around the world have a history of "chucking out time" causing more harm than good or anything... oh wait.

    The more I hear about this "world-beating" app that's bearing the NHS name despite having cock-all to do with the NHS...



    The more I think Our Glorious Leaders may have been telling porkies.

    Just what?! Test results from around half of all tests (based on the later tweet where they say that around half can be linked) cannot be linked?!

    Seriously?!

    It's cool; they've updated the app. When you click on the icon of the updated version, it now just shows you a portrait of Boris Johnson against a Union Flag backdrop and a stirring soundtrack by Elgar, while a soothing voice repeats the mantra: "Believe in Britain... Believe in Britain... Believe in Britain..."

    Even funnier when you know some people in Belfast where basically everyone knows someone who has at one point worked for Concentrix and not one of them can tell you anything positive about the company.

    Well for today I feel like veering from left wing to militantly right wing. These people need to be rounded up into vans, driven out into the countryide and the vans machine gunned, then burn the vans. It's the only way to ensure public safety.

    Ahhh, now I feel better for typing that.

    Go far enough left and far enough right and you end up in a similar place.

    Round them all up, take them to a disused airfield with a strong, high, electrified fence and give them a load of tents. Then they can infect each other to their hearts content and leave the rest of us to stay safe.

    To me the greater danger isn't them spreading Covid, it's the level of stupid required to make the decisions that led to them all standing there waving their alt-right sovereign citizen placards around. Even if they all got super-duper-Covid and then SARS right after enough would survive for the stupid to still be dangerous.

    I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

    Daily Heil headline the day after:
    The nuke originated from Meghan Markle who was trying to create a mutant army to conquer Dubai.

    My OH is currently in halls in the Netherlands (whilst I'm still in the UK) and had a couple of symptoms so arranged to get a test, told the flat just so they knew and first thing they all did was moan about the fact they couldn't have people visit/told her what she has to do (can't be near any of them, always wear a face mask, can't go shopping etc), none of them asking if she was ok, couple said to ask if she needed anything, but not till the next evening, not sure how she's meant to not go shopping if nobody offers to help her with that.

    Really sucky situation for those in halls I feel right now.

    Anyone else had a text from the NHS asking to download their tracing app? Anyone have any inclination of doing so?
