I see non of these people that do nothing but criticise all of the decisions offering any relevant advice before hand..... Wisdom is a great thing if you have 20-20 hindsight, personally I have little time for these type of people, the contribution they give to solving anything is absolutely nil

the next big thing will be the amount of loot thats been spent on purchasing millions of doses of the proposed new covid immunisation drugs

none of which have been proved to work in any way yet, four or five different options have been ordered ????


Actually, slightly wrong there Michael, the order process is providing funding of the development of the vaccines - there are several companies and organisations all racing to develop The Vaccine and if the UK Government want to obtain supplies of whichever is successful then they have to contribute to the development of them.
Similar to a lot of builders merchants that are prioritising account holders first when it comes to selling materials.

I'd rather be behind a proactive government in the race for a vaccine than sitting on the sidelines sniping at their every move :)

Lack of Social distancing in an already restricted area .....

As ordinary decent families can't meet up to go to the pub, cinema, park in Manchester, thousands of Pakistanis on the streets last night celebrating 'Pakistan independence day'.

Police are chased out by the baying mob, and the media are looking the other way, if this had been football lads, it would be all over the news.

There was a distinct lack of masks and social distancing as well - bearing in mind this is one of the current hot-spots,

Here's a very interesting extract from Dido Harding's Wikipedia entry:

"Diana Mary "Dido" Harding, Baroness Harding of Winscombe (born 9 November 1967)[1] is a British businesswoman serving as chairwoman of NHS Improvement since 2017 and head of the NHS Test and Trace programme, established to track and help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in England, since May 2020.[2][3]

She is a former chief executive of the TalkTalk Group.[4] A member of the Conservative Party and a friend of former Prime Minister David Cameron, Harding was appointed as a Member of the House of Lords by Cameron in 2014. She holds a board position at the Jockey Club,[5] which is responsible for several major events including the Cheltenham Festival.

[Here's the good bit]

She is married to Conservative Party Member of Parliament John Penrose, who sits on the advisory board of think tank 1828 which calls for "the NHS to be replaced by an insurance system and for Public Health England to be scrapped."[6]

Remind me; What just happened to Public Health England ? :eek:

So who do you reckon they gave the job to in The Telegraph?
Don’t think the telegraph will be posting her tweets.
Is that the same Rachel Clarke who has a book release next month.
Good Free publicity.
Chill out. All this searching for anti government stuff could lead you to a early grave. Stress is not good for you. Except that the Tories are in power for next 4 years and move on. Next election get back into politics but just chill and go fishing.

The Tories may be in power for the next for years....but I wouldn’t bet that Johnson will be....there is already a lot of dissatisfaction on the Tory back benches
