    These very same people will be the ones demanding the foreign aid budget be cut because we should sort our own problems out first and/or look after our own.

    He must have had an accident and banged his head.

    I'm sure our local Tory MP will have voted against. A classic, forget the constituents, only my career matters, Tory.

    EDIT: Just checked, Rebecca Pow (Taunton Deane) voted against but, I'm sure her kids always have/had enough to eat.

    You had Scottish [and possibly Welsh] Tories, voting it down for England, knowing full well it wouldn't affect their own constituents.

    So more help for Tier 2 now London is involved after ignoring pleas for weeks from other regions.

    Way to go in dealing with the North/South divide.

    Flu & cold season is starting up, so what are you guys doing each time you get a cough or cold? Ominously, last winter I got quite a few bad ones, so can expect a few this time.

    It's a choice between stabbing my finger and draining it (yuck), trying not to poke my eye or cross contaminate at a drive-thru (if someone drives me), or nothing.

    In fact I have a bit of a cough, nothing abnormal. But without my own transport, no walk-in, and it being a weekend (self-test must be done and posted on weekdays), I have no options currently anyway! Fantastic!

    Community face coverings are not PPE.
    Surgical masks (common disposable ones) are not PPE
    The general public are not required to wear PPE masks

    Does it even matter to begin with?

    Either our taxes pay for the VAT exemption or our taxes pay for the NHS to pay VAT on it, either way we pay for it.

    I did a poll and so far only 2 in 21 people would get tested if they had a symptom and thus would need testing.

    RE: my last post. My cough has gone just like that, so I'm glad I didn't waste a test or put myself at risk going to a test centre.
