    Covid is the new Thatcher.
    'Ah lost me job in '20 cos o' that fookin' Covid'.
    'When that Covid dies ah'll spit on its grave'
    'Covid ruined this community. Ah hope it's satisfied'.
    etc

    Wore my spass-pass for the first time today. Feels good. I had a couple of cartoon  bulging-eyes when shop assistants saw me walking in uncovered, but then they relaxed when they saw the tard-card around my neck.

    I think I've temporarily, hopefully, adapted. I don't think any more about what I might not be able to do of the things I'd planned for about the last 10 years, or if I'm honest, probably what most of my life had focused upon, to get to the point I'm at.
    I did a long answer to your original post yesteday, but deleted it. But this is a section
    Other people look at my lifestyle and it's plain that it doesn't fit their view of what signifies success  in a materialistic world and some use their views to be judgemental.
    But I just had a day out collecting chestnuts for winter stews, a fantastic crop this year, collected about 5kg. (Picked up the first road-kill pheasant of the winter yesterday so some will be used for that.) Walked the 4-mile length of an estuary while collecting the chestnuts and saw various fungi, a collection of ~50 swans sheltering in a bay from the wind, herring gulls feeding, geese, egrets, herons, buzzards, a kingfisher, various waders. Lay in the sunshine on a small 'beach' and ate lunch of an apple and a handful of raw chestnuts. Sheltered in an old lime kiln on the side of the estuary as a heavy rain shower passed.
    When we reached the coast where we planned to spend an hour there were people in their Range Rovers, like-new Barbour Jackets, People buying lunch in a crowded pub. Parking in the beach car park was £6.50. Hustle bustle
    GF and I both said "we really wouldn't want that", turned back from the metropolis and walked the 4 miles back. 5 hours out for free.
    We're rich. And very lucky to those that live in an urban place, but would they want to swap in any case ?

    The covid bonus the bennie receivers are currently getting will never be withdrawn.
    I can already hear the wailing and shrieking from the usual suspects who are currently busy backing Saint Rashy in his bid to stop all these children starving to death.

    Instead of food banks, we could have 'test banks' where struggling families can be tested for the Covids free of charge before their two week all inclusive resort breaks in Mauritius.
    No kiddy in modern Britain should be deprived of that and anyone who thinks they should is probably an evil Tory.

    This is happening in a lot of places in California and Washington State apparently. Seattle and Portland are similar.
    It's the virus of liberalism. Once it has destroyed the host it moves on to another target. The libs are leaving the cities their policies have f*cked up and are moving to conservative places like Texas which they are now beginning to turn the same way.
    The only hope is that once the luvvies have gone, ordinary decent people can begin to reclaim the cities with sensible policies.

    Some of the online tailors like Ravis of Bangkok seem to be doing quite big discounts. I guess very few men are buying suits and proper shirts at the moment.

    I don't think petitions achieve a great deal - they are just ignored if they don't fit with the MSM agenda. I think we've gone beyond that stage now anyway - if people want to show willing they need to start chipping in to the support funds for impending court cases such as the Liverpool gym rebellion.

    No government wants a populace that understands how to save money. Only to spend it!

    Austin Allegro got a reaction from Hopeful in Long Covid   
    What's worrying is that as a society we are so far down the rabbit hole of moral relativism that we are told there is nothing wrong with a healthcare professional looking like that.
    If she was puffing on a cigarette in that picture, imagine the howls of outrage - she would lose her job immediately.

    Ah yes, it's the little things that make life worth while. They can't take those away from us! My favourites include:
    Exchanging smiles with the pretty girl behind the counter of my local shop...oh...wait.
    Listening to a beautiful anthem by the choir in my local church...erm...hang on...
    Meeting with friends for a pint and a laugh at the pub....woops, wait a minute...
    Sunday lunch at home with extended family...ah...erm...
    The view across the estuary as you drive into Wales from England...dammit!

    Reminds me of the old joke.
    A Jewish mother took her son on the bus and asked for one adult and a child.
    The conductor looked at her son and said 'He looks a lot older than 14'.
    The mother replied 'Can I help it if he worries?'

    I think Krankie's drunk on power. She's never had such exposure as she's had in the last few months, and can swan around acting like she's Queen of Scotland, using the usual tactic of blaming England for everything. I suspect she also lacks the intellectual ability to rationally analyse the Covid situation, and is in thrall to lockdown fanatics and health advisors with various agendas.
