Tell me about it!! A lot of our staff went home in march and we were told we still have to come in. We're classed as key workers but its just an office, no customers come in here and theres no reason we cant do the job from home. Seems ridiculous to me!! 

Oh fingers crossed your volunteering for that will help with the stability of your job! It shows willing and if you're keen thats got to go in your favour!! X

odd. I WFH and am classed as  a key worker and have been told would be the last to go back to the office due to this.

 

Although thinking about it now it could be that no one likes me and they will keep me at home for years

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

Under the radar in the general media. I’ll continue to post interesting news/politics related items in this thread. They seem to interest a few here. You’ve posted that a couple of times now I’ve noticed, this thread has been going on for months and has plenty of different topics discussed.

Yeah and the thread is getting less and less useful because good, informative posts (from Toilet Duck for example) are diluted by 4 or 5 people posting every new article they can find in here even if it isn't related to Covid. There is a General News Discussion thread elsewhere btw.

There is method to her madness. She’s the goldilocks of the civil service. She’s neither too good nor too shit so she doesn’t get noticed.

Oh well, seems like you might have to get over that. Maybe just message Toilet Duck if he’s who you want to hear from.

Not just him specifically but if it was kept to relevant posts about the topic it would be a better and more useful thread. Atm it's basically the same few people posting every current affairs news piece into the thread as possible.

Yeah yeah very good. Well over half the posts in this thread come from the same few people- what are you hoping to achieve with this pish?

The people you are aiming this at post much more relevant information than I’ve ever seen you post in here. Whether it’s info from Twitter, News or daily stats; it’s more than I’ve seen from you. So yes some of it might not technically be in topic but that’s because a conversation and relationships have evolved here over the 6 months.

Ironically your comments have no taken this thread even more off topic.

News on while working today is making me angry! 
 

This narrative that the people are to blame for not following the rules, that’s currently being spread faster than Covid by Dominic Raab sofa surfing is disgusting. 
 

Nothing to do with everyone in restaurants to get their cheap food then? Or being told to go back to the office and buy lunch? Schools and universities? Your pissy leadership? 
 

Enough TV for one day.

Once this thread hits the inevitable 1000 page mark then maybe a split is in order. Have a dedicated Covid thread with a strong emphasis on how it potentially may affect Glastonbury. Plus a generic politics/grumbling thread about the shit. 
 

People are always going to come to this section of the forum as it’s the most popular one. I don’t think a lot of people even realise there is a general news thread elsewhere on the site. 
 

Covid news is going to dominate conversations right now. So keeping it on track would be great. More active moderation could help with moving posts and reminding people to keep on topic but that will be a colossal amount of work considering the high activity in here.

The thread title is when will this shit end? 
 

Shit I would like to end at the moment:

Covid-19

Brexit

Tory rule

Trump

 

It all seems on topic to me!

There will be a lot of lurkers here that agree with me. Also I clearly wasn't talking about daily stats etc I clearly took issue with the completely irrelevant posts of which there are plenty. Not sure how it could go anymore off topic than chlorinated chicken but ok

I say keep it as it is, this thread is keeping more people happy than it is otherwise. The vast majority of stuff is Covid related anyway.

It's about 5 people making up the majority of the posts so not sure how it's keeping more people happy.

The rich, delicious irony here is that the majority of your posts here today haven’t been on topic.
