Re: COVID-19 UK

I take it you haven't been watching all the episodes. Although I haven't watched tonight's yet, I am assuming it is his step-daughter who lives in the same house. All the other presenters are at or very close to their own homes. Yes it is his step-daughter tonight and went to live with him before l...

Re: COVID-19 UK

Tonight's Springwatch on BBC2 - Chris Packham standing no more than a couple feet away from his co-presenter. It's becoming the 'new normal'.

Re: COVID-19 UK

How can the government possibly even start to educate these morons? They might get their attention by pointing the barrel of a gun at them. For all the media's highlighting of the good deeds people have done and are doing, there are examples up and down the land of the selfish, moronic behaviour of...

Excellent photo - I'd seen it on one of the radar sites and assumed it would be in a shade of grey, so the colour scheme is a pleasant surprise.

Given the unfortunate manner in which George Floyd met his end, am I the only one who thinks that 'taking the knee' is a wholly inappropriate way to mark his passing? Just sayin'.

Re: Jurassic Coast beach crowds 'showed shocking disregard for area'

Jeremy Hunt is part of the government - a former Health secretary. I think the criticism is a little unfair - It's not Government policy to slow up tests so the results is not turned around in 24 hours - I am confident they are trying to achieve the target. You might accuse them of being incompeten...

Re: Jurassic Coast beach crowds 'showed shocking disregard for area'

Just watched Jeremy Hunt asking questions at the select committee. Jeremy Hunt - what a bitter person! It's ironic and maddening that Baroness Dido Harding, an ex-chief exec of Talk Talk, refused to communicate any answers to Hunt's direct questions. 'It's Good to Talk', but not so good when this G...

Re: COVID-19 UK

Did DC build the cottage, or was it his parents as it's on their land? Either way, it would appear that no records exist with the council's Planning Department for such a construction.

Re: Jurassic Coast beach crowds 'showed shocking disregard for area'

That's a sad sight to see, but I'm not surprised in the slightest. Britain's approach to tackling littering and fly-tipping is pathetic, the result of which is that we have an appalling reputation for being a 'dirty' country. It's politically correct not to point the finger, but as far as littering ...

Re: COVID-19 UK

McDonald's reopened 31 branches across Scotland today - traffic chaos and the police being called in to sort things out (as if they haven't got enough to do already) was the inevitable result. In Springburn (north Glasgow) the queue was more than 75 vehicles.

So when does the war on obesity start?

Re: 1/48th Hunter T7

A great piece of work - brings back memories of the RN and RAF two-seaters at Lossiemouth - to me, the best-looking variant of the Hunter. Well done yet again.

Today for the first time in 6 weeks I didn't have to queue at the supermarket for my essential supplies (Tea and Milk) have things calmed down or is everyone still on the beach? Back in March, my local Lidl had bare shelves, but it gradually improved as Lidl got to grips with configuring the supply...

Re: COVID-19 UK

Well I don't put any faith in the Government's 'steps' mantras. The Top Three sayings in my household as we approach the month of June are:

1) 'The genie is out of the bottle.'
2) 'There is no Plan B.'
3) 'I think I'll buy some more toilet rolls, just in case.'

In my line of work I've had dealings with a few journalists (the 'retiles') over the years, some of whom are seasoned pros who know the business inside out, top to bottom. Back in 1996, while working with one of them, he came out with a line which has stuck with me ever since as the perfect explanat...

On a more ominous note take a look at the crowds on the beach at Durdle Door https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-dorset-52864454 Who were then forced even closer to let the helicopters land to deal with the idiots injured jumping off the cliffs into the sea.
