I had a lovely big poo, blew my nose and then went to the fridge to sniff some stilton I have in the cheese drawer.

It's faint, but there's some smell there so maybe the Longbranch bourbon I was drinking last night has burnt all my tastebuds or something.

The cheese drawer. Fuck me, who designed your fridge, Daniel Levy?

My uncle lost his battle to this in Royal Bolton this morning, so he will be one of today’s numbers.  last rites over the phone held by a nurse with no family there. made an exception yester

That was one of the loveliest things to ever happen. Stood in my garden sobbing like a baby! Proud to work for the NHS 👏👏👏👏❤️

I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single

You've got to get cheese right.

Otherwise, we're going through all this for nothing.

Do you have a specific cheese drawer in your fridge? Maybe I'm a heathen. My cheese shares space with tomato puree, garlic dip, 2 ripples, a garlic clove, half a lemon and some bay leaves. Maybe I need to change my cheese strategy

I do.

It stems from a marital dispute a few years ago when I left a chunk of Shropshire Blue behind some jars at the back of the fridge for a few weeks longer than I should have. By the time I realised it was there it could only be identified by a trained botanist.

After that, I was allowed a cheese only section.

I love cheese, me.

We have a special cheese section in our fridge - nothing but cheese is allowed in it. The other week I pulled out a lump of what I think used to be Feta, fucking hell, it stunk worse then Big E's belly button.

It is too late though. Why have a blanket furlough knowing folk where going to be made redundant, basically paying to kick the problem down the road rather than the clever hardest hit sector support we've seen in other countries? 

Effectively required? There are thousands upon thousands of people who can't work through no fault of their own and are now jobless. Once things are back to normal their skills will be required. My Mrs is now redundant, there is no work. Over 20 years moving around, taking hardships to progress careers and that's it - its not as though these sectors are surplus to requirements, they just can't open at the moment. I've been really lucky and I've had to take a 10 grand drop for a 12 month cover. 

This has been poorly handled from the off from the health service to jobs. What a fucking shower we have, and some folk still swallow this garbage like good little proles. 

If you're not angry, you should be.

 

More horse dump.

Not every job can be saved, whether they'd like to or not.

Offering more self righteous, patronising comments doesnt make you right.

Absolutely no need to be angry whatsoever.

I've got two teenage sons who like to graze on cheese directly from the fridge, usually after midnight, on their way to the downstairs bog in the middle of the night. Thererfore the shit cheese is left plainly in view, with ease of access a priority, in the middle see through drawer attached to the inside of the fridge door. 

The good cheese is hidden behind the pickled onion jar at the top of the back shelf, but the mrs complains if it's a smelly one, so it has to be well wrapped to prevent nagging.

Distinct whiff of gammon.

If it was a 'simple' recession, I think I'd be much more sympathetic to this view. But this is unprecedented. This isn't people losing jobs just because a downturn in a certain sector or that the job isn't viable anymore. This is through absolutely no fault of their own that they have been told they can't work. If it wasn't for covid they'd be in work and earning tomorrow. They couldn't plan, there was no warning. One day in work, next on furlough, then 30 days later, redundant. If you have built a life around a certain wage structure it's not good enough to say well go and just do something else and expect to be able to turn it around in four weeks and pay the mortagage, rent loans whatever. We did what we were told - by the tories - got on our bikes, went to places I didn't really want to be for work and to grow my career. This when I were a lad nonsense totally misreads the situation people are finding themselves in. Whole sectors, gone within six months.

Someone will be along presently to quote Marx and say a war (albeit against a microbe) is perfect to stimulate a weary economy.

Suck it up and get down the food bank etc...

Whilst I'm not blaming the tories, I do feel for people whose sectors have been utterly decimated by Covid. This is literally no-one's fault (I don't buy into any theory that says this was done on purpose. Just nature being nature for me.)

We are obliged as a nation to help each other out. That's Blitz spirit. Not just patting yourself on the back for being fortunate enough to be retired or work in an industry that managed to swerve the bullet.

I've been called worse by better people than you. If you mean by patronising, you don't like where someone points out a flaw in your worldview, then yes I'm talking down to you, and wafting a fragrantly be-gloved hand in your direction to dismiss you. You may be gone if my comments displease you but please trying a move beyond the vulgarities of horse defecation to make your point. It may prove to be more effective, otherwise we'll all be in the gutter with such vile reposts as;

This isn't a simple recession you John Bull cockgobbler, and getting on your high wooden union jack painted rocking horse, ignoring the actual facts makes you sound like a bellowing buffoon.

Its not about just saving jobs ,its about preparing for redundancies whole sectors have been warning about for months, whilst your hero-worshiped overlords did less than fuck all and gave everyone a few cheap meals whilst kicking the redundancy can as far down the road as they thought they could and lying about how far head of the game they were with their ability to contain this problem. So don't in turn patronise me and tell me when I should or should not be fucking angry you wankstain on a cheap duvet, if you want self righteous, self-belief I'd look closer to home. 

As it is, and being the better man, I'll just say lets agree to disagree and part as friends.

Halleluiah! Have a plus 10. By pulling together and acknowledging some folk have had the shitty end of the stick is the only way we'll get through this. I'm hoping it might soothe some of the wounds that Brexit sowed.

Folk need to stop listening to the opinions of people who just happen to present a radio show, you may as well post screenshots of Whatsapp messages from Dave from the pub. They are no more or less qualified or valid.

She's talking out of her hoop anyway - Pillar 1 tests include hospitalised with symptoms, Pillar 2 includes the ones you book yourself, where you're told multiple times that you have to have a least 1 of the 3 main symptoms to get a test, Pillar 3 is the antibody test, and Pillar 4 is surveilance including some serology.   

What does she think we should do instead? - only test people once they're in hospital - bit late then, 

Stop testing NHS workers without symptoms and let them walk around wards potentially infecting people unknowingly? 

Theres going to be false positives, always will be.
