I'm in work until next Thursday due to exams taking place, I cancelled all external invigiltors to protect them and to reduce staff on the college campus. After Thursday I'm in once a week on Wednesdays.

I'm I a key worker, I'd say yes up to next Thursday, after that probably not, but I still have to meet summer exam entry deadlines which are due mid-February, so wfh and one day in doesn't seem to bad.

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'm at stage 8 from February.

I'm not to bothered about receiving the vaccine just yet, let's hope they can vaccinate as many as possible over the next 2 or 3 months and get back to some real civilisation.

Surely we don't want to further exacerbate the economic situation. Vaccinate the main/larger tax contributors first, and then let the unskilled low wage masses (footsoldiers) have theirs later

@SpiderThe basket is bang on but I don't wear johnny-giggs...(though I probably should).

I said I went for a 'few bits' but I ended up filling a rucksack and two of those big bags for life with; A box of McEwans, 2 bottles of D+B, 8 pints of milk, 2kg of couscous (hello sailor!), a cooked chicken, various cheeses, bottles of fizzy water, Jars of sauerkraut, cartons of OJ and more...

I'd forgot how I was getting home.

Maybe that's why I was panned out riding up Weston Street - I was about 30kg heavier.

What a pillock.

I'd be interested to hear folks views on the footballers breaking these lockdowns. I heard Man City had said that because the players who went to Dubai went for commercial reasons that was ok, despite being disappointed.

Now, that appears disingenuous to me, especially as those players are putting in harms way staff at clubs who are following rules and not jetting off here, there and everywhere. @Rudy will have more insight into this, just interested in people's thoughts.

One chap at work looks after his Mam, she has no one else so he’s been extra careful.
 

He was treating a player for a slight strain asked him what he’s been up too said nothing much staying in. On one of the tests the reported positive. 
Did the tracing with him and has since come to light that he seems to have got it from the player who had broken Covid laws. 
 

His Mam has now had to get homecare because he can’t see her, luckily she tested negative but she’s not in the best health so it’s lucky.

I got told to WFH, had my laptop and equipment sent in to me. Did my tests as per usual and I was found positive, it seems like it has come from the same player, my Mrs is a month away from dropping our second kid, so I’ve not seen her (result) or my daughter in over a week so they don’t get it, and every time my phone goes I think our Maude is going to go intO labour and I’ll miss it.

Lets put it this way if I had millions in the bank and played football for a living and the only thing the gaffer asked of me was to stay the fuck at home, I wouldn’t think twice.
There are some selfish individuals who are now not giving a fuck about the implications it has on regular folk and it absolutely stinks. 
The audacious argument that footballers should get the vaccine first to take the pressure off the NHS makes me feel absolutely sick. 
If I hadn’t got a big contract and a legal obligation to stay I think i would be looking at leaving. I’ve told my bosses this and they’ve reassured me that they don’t take it lightly and there are one or two who will shown the door in the summer and it won’t be because of their performances on the pitch.

If you’re required to be out and about between 8 - 6 next morning then you’d be able to provide evidence. 

did you think you may not be able to supply?

You come across as a fairly clever lad but then fail the “read all the post” test.

Sage woman highlighted 2 areas why this lockdown isn't working.

1. Too many children going to school because the govt have relaxed rules on who is a keyworker

2. Too many tradesman visiting people's home.A new jacuzzi being fitted isn't essential, the new garage can wait a few weeks and it isn't a disaster if the windows are a bit dusty because they havent been cleaned for 6 weeks

I don’t think “essential” work has figured in this lockdown as yet

As an aside I had a few cans so went (to Burnden) on my pushiron (I'd only had three and went slow on the pavement...)

In September I was running from my house to Cleggs Lane and back (6km with two good climbs) in 30 mins-ish, biking 26-28 miles...

Had it in October.

Yesterday I had to get off and push halfway up the slight brew of Weston Street on the way home.

I was fooked and blowing out of my arse.

I hope @Rudy
you avoid this, mate. I wonder which guidelines flouting twat infected me? I hope their cock (or tits) drop off...

I was in a bad way the past two days but today I’ve kicked it’s cunt in.

I have a feeling they’ll impose further restrictions though not sure what they could be.

I guess closing more workplaces.

No-one needs a candle and a new washing basket from Home Bargains.

Oi do you want a transfer kitty in the summer? Get spending

If its essential for you to go to the workplace to be able to do your job, then you SHOULD

Not can, should

Which i believe is the same as last march

.gov and the media invented essential work

But a company can decide that it isn’t safe and close down and furlough you all. If they choose no? Not the government but your employer? Or is my understanding wrong?

And to save 3 hours of my life

Nobody can be forced into being furloughed

They can be made redundant

Didnt furlough change that you had to work a day or 2 per week, or didnt that ever happen

No. If the company wants to furlough as there is no work. If you refuse they can make you redundant.
