So the government answer will be army on the streets and more enforcement of existing rules then? No way will there be more financial help, and the schools and unis are the herd immunity plan to avoid a 3rd wave so that's all they have left

I think on a music festival message board it’s a legitimate question to ask. It doesn’t suggest the OP doesn’t give a shit about anything else. Of course there are much bigger things to be worrie

I can’t get the following thought out of my head and it’s making the old bottom lip wobble: Wednesday evening at the 2021 festival, the sun has been out all day but temperature not stifling, perf

Howdy folks...sorry I'm late to the party! Was in a meeting and could see notifications coming up! So, looks very promising indeed. The vaccinated group not only didn't develop severe disease, bu

interesting - he's now saying government are overstating the situation in Manchester. Really is standing on his own here...

Nope, even the local Tory MPs including Graham Brady, chairman of the 1922 Committee, agree with Burnham.

The rates have been going down in Manchester for several days in a row to be fair.

Have you seen Michael Gove?

I tell you who I haven't seen recently - Mark Francois! He's gone very quiet for some reason!

Francois and Andrew Bridgen have been AWOL for weeks now. Something must be up.

 

The other piece of joy though is that Arron Banks pet gimp Andy Wigmore has been in New Zealand trying to weave his 'brexit magic' on behalf of the New Zealand First party with this result.

It's weird that he's been so quiet isn't it?! Anyway, in completely unrelated news:

I just read that Jacinda Ardern's setting up a coalition with the green party, even though she doesn't have to, just because she wants to move further to the left and wants their input on the environment. It's starting to take the piss how good she is now! Could I even tempt @Ozanneinto saying she's better than Keir Starmer?!

The fact that I asked the wife (Kiwi) if Jacinda was going to get a majority and she replied 'it's nick and nick' made it all the more pleasing.

She's a close a 2nd ;) 

Seriously though she's brilliant, exactly what a leader should be in my opinion. Hopefully other leaders including Keir Starmer will be able to learn from her success so we can see more headlines like 'Labour landslide'.

I will say it again everyone was won over by Rishi giving out money. His first briefing announcing furlough he did seem a cut above the rest because he was saying stuff like no one will be left behind. - Then instantly leaves millions of people with absolutely no help and doesn't address it since. He's now changed his tune to "I can't save every job" and has similar rhetoric to Boris now. 

Also I can't believe anyone thinks he's handsome, he looks like a fraggle rock puppet to me

He's also a diddy little thing. 5ft 5 apparently. I honestly think the only reason Boris chose him as chancellor is to make himself look normal size on photographs

She's going to have a difficult 2nd term, NZ economy is pretty screwed.

So who thinks the testing capacity will miraculously shoot up to 500,000 in the next couple of weeks?

It has been stagnant around 300,000 for a month how can they possibly legitimately increase it 200,000 in two weeks. (Also you could argue that the current capacity has already been overwhelmed)

I've been thinking the same, another 200k in just under 2 weeks. I doubt it.
