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

You can see Boris realizing he needs to maybe actually do something about furlough in real time. 

Though I am insulted every time he mentions "we are making new jobs" - yeah let all those people who lose their jobs work on construction sites

Personally right now I’m hardly checking any other media sites as I know people are going to be posting relevant information here as soon as it’s available. It’s become a condensed news feed where the majority of us are thinking the same here. 
 

There’s always a large group of people viewing and if they weren’t happy with the information on this thread then they wouldn’t be here. 
 

A dedicated stats and @Toilet Duck thread would be nice without any other conversation breaking it up. 

Yeah got to agree with this.

I find it quite distressing that they are calling it "NHS Test and Trace" at every opportunity as if to shift the blame of it's failure towards the people most clapped for on a Thursday night when really the people behind Test and Trace are the government and the blame should lie with them.

Shift and Denial.

Have they released any supporting documentation behind the latest rulings that have been brought it, to try and justify the reasons behind doing so? 
I think it really would go a long way to getting people on board, for example the reason behind no longer allowing fans into sporting events isn’t due to social distancing within the stadium, rather that it will be very difficult to do so when getting into the ground itself, and congregating in the concourse at HT or FT. Or closing pubs at 10pm so people don’t get so drunk they can no longer apply social distancing. 

As crazy as some of these restrictions seem to most of us, there must be some logic behind them (you would hope!)

I’m surprised and disappointed nobody from the opposition has called this out yet.

It's almost too easy for Labour now isn't it?  Just ask the PM a question, any question, and you've a huge, overwhelming chance that he doesn't know the answer and will just waffle.  He can't even waffle a pont he wants to get across, it's just abstract noise most of the time.

That's the problem though isn't it? They're up against someone who gets away with absolute waffle*. People will moan on here and on Twitter and by 2pm it won't have made any difference. Right wing press only seem to report when Labour slip up.

 

*We've all gotta come up with a different word soon coz I love waffles and their name is being dragged through the mud.

That reminds me of my current pet hate which is people calling it "Track and Trace".

 

"Track and Trace" is a royal mail term.

Missed the beginning of PMQs ... dont get home till 12.10 ..... how did Starmer do ? 

Just a normal Wednesday... he asked a valid question clearly three times and Boris didn’t answer it and accused him of not supporting the government.

Boris Johnson doesn't understand that the arts and theater bill doesn't simply give money and aid to the freelance workers. Every time someone asks a question about why the government arent supporting jobs in certain sectors. Boris Johnson just brings up a financial investment tories have made in something similar. 

Freelancers aren't getting any help and will have no income for six more months. - "We gave more to theatres already"
Thousands of Jobs in Scotland are at risk - "We are encouraging businesses to hire young people and creating more building sites"
Job loss a plenty if you don't extend furlough - "We've already given so much money to furlough and the job retention scheme, so those job losses arent our fault."

Pretty standard I'd say, nothing sensational.

Yep, called out Boris for his contradictory statements on Test and Trace, pushed for answers he was never going to get and got shouted at for not being supportive and going against the ‘spirit of togetherness’.

Oh, and upset Boris by reading out direct quotes from Hancock and Dido Harding regarding the failure of testing. It was a bit like Preston’s reaction to Simon Amstell reading Chantelle’s autobiography on Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

That is bloody brilliant example! The trouble is most people blindly go with Boris even though he turns up and waffles out a load of shit, it's so frustrating.

The Govs website has been updated today so I would think the rules are in place now.

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

Pretty much sums up the entire Glastonbury forum... Some members post way too much shite that would be much more suitable in a group chat, quite off putting to a lot of people who just end up being lurkers instead of contributing.. including myself.

Starmer wasn’t even criticising Dido at this point. He just asked which one of their reasons does the government back.
