    Wight Flight got a reaction from Carl Fimble in News from the frontline, are people obeying the new totalitarian government. Post experiences here   
    The second I heard that I assumed it was the nudge unit trying to nullify people's argument that they didn't need a jab because they had had covid.
    I guess I just don't believe a bloody word they tell us anymore.

    The clubhouse one is local to me, and has been all over facebook.
    People donated enough money to pay the fines, but the guys decided to make a stand (daftly if the club had paid them £1 each it would have been Ok) and appeal.
    The police have backed down, admitting they have made an error, apologised and all is now at peace again.
    Apart from the dog walker that dobbed them in. She isn't very popular locally.

    Wight Flight got a reaction from mooncat69 in This weeks Sunak give away is....   
    I don't disagree. I am just trying to understand the logic of extending furlough by any process I can that doesn't require a further delay to the opening of pubs.

    Could we ban furloughed people from going out on weekends and Bank Holidays to leave some room for those of us that work all week?

    Son's state has been completely open for a couple of weeks.
    They have zero cases on his campus as of today, and none reported in the last week.

    Wight Flight got a reaction from Shamone in This weeks Sunak give away is....   
    Agreed. I will recommence going out for lunch once a week, but that isn't going to save the economy.
    As for buying stuff? Nah.

    I think they are very worried that the bounce back / rush of pent up demand might not be as big as hoped.
    Those with money probably don't need to rush out and buy more stuff, and there are now far more without money who simply can't.
    Pubs and restaurants will be packed for the first couple of weeks, but might slip back to below historical levels once the novelty wears off.
    And don't forget they are London centric. Until a decent level of tourists and WFH staff return, London is going to be much, much quieter than usual.

    If i can ever motivate myself to seek out the company of other musicians again, highly doubtful, i,m gonna call the band The Nudge Unit.
    Love that name.
    I do have a fair bit to get off my chest though... so who knows.

    Wight Flight got a reaction from jamanda in Has Coronavirus officially killed the housing market?   
    We have a new scam.
    Because there are so many people looking for rentals, they are all posting more and more desperately on Facebook.
    They will get a reply from someone offering a house that fits the description, with some great indoor photos and a description.
    When they want to view, they are told that, because there are so many 'tyre kickers' they need to send a £500 deposit, which will be refunded if they decide not to rent the place, juts as a sign of commitment.
    Surprise surprise the house isn't actually up for rent / doesn't exist.
