    Bingobob got a reaction from The Grey Man in White Lives Matter..   
    Here's an interesting thread from a Burnley supporters forum. Most posters are clamouring to express their disgust at the events, but when a few posters ask why it's disgusting they are only met with insults and, from what I could tell, not a single reasonable argument.

    Was just watching Norwich v Southampton, spotted the following (but sure I missed a few things) - massive rainbow flag behind one of the the goals, an NHS heart on the front of the shirts and BLM symbols on sleeves and wording on back of every shirt. Pundits were wearing NHS and BLM badges.

    Bingobob got a reaction from gibbon in The economy is totally and utterly fucked   
    Even though I didn't need to, I decided to apply for a 3 month mortgage holiday last week. It felt wrong but in the end I thought I'm not missing out on the 'stimulus' this time round (having missed out on ppi etc previously). The process involved me entering 3 or 4 basic bits of information on the bank's (Clydesdale) website and ticking a box to say that I was suffering financial hardship because of Covid-19. Two days later I got a text saying all had been approved. No mention of higher repayments once the holiday was over (although I'd used an online calculator to work that out - approx. £20 a month). I suppose I will take the maximum break possible and build up a nice lump sum - I can always pay that lump sum back in a couple of years once this has worked its way out of the system.

    Bingobob got a reaction from BoSon in Death Of London   
    The company I work with has a flagship head office for around 50 people just by Liverpool Street Station. They've gone the whole hog - bean bags, beer fridge, pool table, X Box, Pick and Mix etc. Senior Management have now started to question why they've bothered as productivity is much higher with everyone working from home.

    In the UK, one government will never do anything that could in any way be used to benefit the next government.

    Bingobob got a reaction from Rowley in Inconvenient truths   
    A friend of mine whose 60 year old father was put on a ventilator a week or so ago was told by the Dr that the mortality rate for those on a ventilator is around 50%, typically they will be on a ventilator for 2 to 3 weeks if they are to recover however the likely outcome becomes clear by the end of the first week.

    Maybe point out that if you end up buying your own kit there wouldn't be much point in continuing your membership in the future.

    Bingobob got a reaction from JFK in Pandemic coming? - Coronavirus Mar/Apr 2020 (Part 2)   
    The company I work for (small IT consultancy) has just put a post on LinkedIn saying how amazing the NHS is, and as a show of support, they will allow anyone in the company whose partner works in the NHS unlimited paid time off to support their partner during this time. Nice offer, except there's only 30 of us in the company and no one has a partner actually working in the NHS, so just typical virtue signalling with no actual need to do anything.
