Re: What are you playing tonight?

Spent a happy few hours today wallowing in nostalgia thinking about what albums I would put in ‘those that influenced my choice in music’ for one of those things that is doing the rounds on Facebook. I was a 90’s teenager and pretty much most of my choices are 90’s bands, so this lead me to ponderi...

Re: Today I'm neither Angry nor Happy about....

Disappointed really, but it was to be expected. Highlight of my year for the past few years has been the Green Man Festival. Just received the inevitable email to say that this year's is cancelled. Now then, do I claim my money back or let it slide over to next year? :? Money back, too many uncerta...

Re: General Chit Chat

If you want to speak frankly Bwfci, you yourself admit NZ and UK is like chalk and cheese. There are very few countries similar to the UK who have been brilliant shining examples in handling this bloody virus, even the German super model figures are coming under intense scrutiny now. The Chinese dic...

Re: General Chit Chat

This isn’t a plan. It’s not a way forward. It’s just passing of the buck. A vacuum of leadership. We can see real leaders in other nations take a clear stand and step up. We get a slogan that doesn’t even make sense and new advice that isn’t in any way clear, or appropriate to the situation we find...

Pond life who are spitting at the police and paramedics claiming they have the virus! Why oh why can the police not just tazer, cuff them, chuck um in the van then make their miserable existence more miserable for a few hours down the station? If they are school kids drag the parents in and fine them.

No analysis that includes China's figures in it can be accurate.

Re: Today I'm angry about.....

There is a worldwide shortage of PPE. Every single hospital in the world wants it where previously they didn’t. What do you suggest we do? There are enough masks, aprons and gloves at most hospitals. The problem is there is not enough different size masks, especially small ones. If the doctors and ...

Re: Today I'm angry about.....

It never ceases to amaze and astound me the level of dirt throwing and point scoring people resort to in a crisis. As has been said, maybe things could have been done differently, maybe things could have been done better and maybe, just maybe countries could have been more prepared. However..... Th...

Re: Today I'm angry about.....

On the day the U.K. records the highest COVID 19 daily death toll in Europe anywhere, on record, we have a press conference where the Health Secretary thinks that the PMs health is the headline. Same with major sections of the press. When Italy had 900 deaths a day we covered it as a disaster. It’s...

Re: General Chit Chat

I'm glad faith is a comfort to those who have it but it's worth remembering others don't and they have their reasons. Accepted and respected as it always should be, Pru. No offence intended. It's a very stressful time for us all. Like I said, each to his own and my post had only good intention. F a...
