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

So Borat is brilliant for those who like that sort of thing. They have Rudy Giuliani on camera saying China created the virus and spread it round the world and that nobody was eating bats. And hugely mocks the US conspiracy lot.

They also have him hitting on a young (what he thought) was a journalist. But he wasn't taken in of course....

We just watched it. Enjoyed it mainly and did laugh a lot. The Giuliani bit a definite highlight. Could have done without the synagogue bit personally, but I could we what he was trying to do.

From the article "There's to date no real precedent for the circuit-breaker approach. "

Hmmm, Possibly the country that coined the term may have been a good example to reference; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_Singapore_circuit_breaker_measures

Remember our Christmas conversation on here? No surprise Spaffer has done the opposite...

i've just booked a pub for xmas day, as that works for an xmas day visit to my mum. As she lives alone and pubs-with-food should be staying open in all tiers, it should be within the rules in all circumstances. Fingers crossed.

And next weekend I have to venture into tier 3 for some household mixing because that's a better outcome than the homeless alternative. Presumably that's allowed?

The synagogue part was an attack on Facebook. It was ok, but a bit forced.

Yeah I got it. I heard that one of the ladies is now dead though and her family were unhappy about it being included, which made me feel a bit weird about it. Anyway on the whole I liked the film as I say.

Christmas already cancelled here. With Mrs L nursing Covid patients we can't take the risk (she had 2 deaths yesterday). Implementing no presents rule family-wide to reduce (hopefully eliminate) pressure for non-essentail shopping trips and keep everyone safe.

I'm confused dude, you can't visit tier 3 and mix with other households. Are you your mum's support bubble? If not, Xmas dinner in pub not allowed either if you were in a tier 3 area, or if a person is from there...

Not telling you what to do, by the way...

What was he trying to do? Definitely the most odd bit of it, but the lady was just amazing.

Aren't you allowed to eat in a pub with your support bubble?

Well I mean generally I could see what he was doing, the women were of course not the target of the joke. Just read that her family are suing actually.

Is she!? 
One thing that struck me was how bunches of christian conservatives effectively welcomed them in, despite clearly being outsiders. And there were some proper nice humans (the lady clapping for instance) among the idiots.

Well she is dead, but her family are, yeah. They are saying that she was told it was a serious documentary and was misled.
