    Exactly what I'm telling my OH, she's survived worse! No word of any deaths in the home yet but we're only a few weeks into the breakout.

    Thanks Boris, great idea letting otherwise safe, in-care individuals out into the wide world for a few days over Xmas to take the plague back into their homes.

    It wasn't as if that could possibly backfire... unless the plan was population control all along.

    Just got off the phone with a colleague who spent last week coughing up blood as a result of this trendy new germ going around. His friend is NHS, had the vaccine and ended up in a worse state than him from the side effects, bizarrely. Still off work since pre-Christmas and now his missus is getting a bit concerned.

    There really don't seem to be any rules with any of this...

    @Shirty, so sorry to hear your news; I hope she recovers.

    Similarly, my MIL is the most vulnerable in our family. She was 88 last week, has COPD, heart problems and bad osteoporosis.

    That said, she has had the first dose of vaccine, so should be better off than she was a few weeks ago.

    My mum's friend has it, apparently 'ok' for now besides feeling like crap.

    Luckiky for my mum they'd not seen each other for a while and she recently did a test for Kings College which was negative.

    Still, her mate just has her bubble and (i think) is pretty wary - it still leaves alot of variables out there especially what with christmas. Looks like covid didn't take that day off, whodafunk?

    The company behind that first one has spoken up, saying it's a one-week (five-meal) parcel and not a two-week (ten meal) parcel - and that it charged the taxpayer £10.50 rather than £30. It also says it will be "further enhancing our food parcels" by charging the full £15 per week.

    Given her expertise in the area I wonder if Priti thinks the public can be bullied into cooperation. The fact that she has the audacity to stand there lecturin' the public about how clear the rules are, whilst gettin' them wrong, would be sad if it wasn't so unsurprisin'.

    so it only charges 2x what the contents are was worth instead of 6x, and will rectify it by charging 3x what they're worth instead.

    I'm no fan of Piers Morgan - to paraphrase an old episode of I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue, the definition of the word "countryside" is "killing Piers Morgan" - but fair play for putting Hancock on the spot:



    Physically incapable of admitting wrongdoing, or showing any kind of empathy whatsoever. Disgusting.
