  1. I should clarify. Accessible if you're in that country. They're not ring fenced or financially ridiculous. But getting to the countries he is in might be an issue.
  2. Bourdain does travel right. No schticky jokes that you can see from the top of the show and visits genuinely accessible attractions. Not a huge fan of Ayoade to be honest. A lot of it is sneering and condescending under the guise of 'lol nerd' type humour.
  3. https://www.google.com/search?safe=strict&rlz=1C1CHBD_en-GBGB918GB918&ei=VLJYX9uuIMPXkwWE9KzIBg&q=matt+hancock+too+many+tests&oq=matt+hancock+too+many+tests&gs_lcp=CgZwc3ktYWIQAzoICAAQsQMQgwE6AggAOggIIRAWEB0QHjoFCCEQoAFQtmFYwWxgh25oAHAAeACAAYQBiAGPB5IBBDEyLjGYAQCgAQGqAQdnd3Mtd2l6wAEB&sclient=psy-ab&ved=0ahUKEwjbqOm48tvrAhXD66QKHQQ6C2kQ4dUDCA0&uact=5 Here, have a mutltude of links to it. People get shirty if you don't provide their preferred news provider but everyone is reporting this shambles.
  4. Matt Hankcock suggesting the testing shortage isn't owing to a lack of tests - it's because the tests are being taken by those who don't need them. I'm not even sure how to digest this sensibly. Are people supposed to know they're negative without the test? Who 'needs' a test other than those with symptoms, surely they're not doing it for fun.
  5. Those gigantic waves in Portugal that are over 100ft high. I've seen the videos and still have trouble comprehending their size.
  6. I'm really ****ing tired
  7. Agreed. More to the point its the basis stories and murmurings from the camp that something is going on. Tanner commenting on the shambles. It all adds up. Without any concrete proof it all feels a bit as though something stinks.
  8. Which is all fine until the inevitable back-track of 'well, we said that they had a smaller percentage...we said there are less of them...we never denied they spread it...we have always said small children are effective vectors of transmission for the disease'.
  9. The government's polarised leading of this pandemic has generated this - the 'we're right in the face of facts' attitude has generated resentment in some quarters that are hoping for the metaphorical bloody nose. Both sides of that coin are particularly idiotic.
  10. The young people who definitely don't spread it - they've done the research, y'know.
  11. I can't explain any of it anymore.
  12. This isn't going to happen!
  13. Its not gospel, its just added weight to my argument. There are too many core similarities in policy, personality, even the way they look. It's not a huge coincidence. I mean you can find tonnes of evidence if you keep looking of people, involved in a professional capacity, acknowledging their deep seated similarities. The reason tories don't want to acknowledge this is because doing so really acknowledges the fact that we've got someone in charge who is okay with racism, homophobia, and sexism (there are multiple public sources for this, please don't make me go and find them). Far rather dissociate the two and deny it than accept that, morally, we're becoming a right wing nationalist state. Boris = Trump connects our leader (just a bloody good British chap salt of the earth etc) to quite possibly the worst ever president. I get why this might not be ideal to accept but it doesn't make it any less accurate.
  14. Presiding over a car crash of a pre season right now. Needs to earn his crust.
  15. Donald Trump has literally called him Britain Trump. If that isn't identify massive parallels then I don't know what is. https://www.politico.com/news/2019/12/12/trump-boris-johnson-relationship-083732
  16. Facetious dismissal aside, there are massive parallels between the two acknowledged by both the Tory party and Trump himself. It's not a flippant remark.
  17. Enjoyed the film but the loudness of the score made it really uncomfortable watching.
  18. https://www.google.com/search?q=Boris+fascinated+trump&oq=Boris+fascinated+trump&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i60.3114j0j9&client=ms-android-ee-uk-revc&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8 Tonnes of news outlets reporting the exact same thing. Y'know, its an interview with AP or such and not an OpEd piece. Were you ignorant or did you just not bother to read the article?
  19. It's a direct quotation. You might not like their political outlook but they aren't fabricating quotes.
  20. There was a diplomat in the news lately that said Boris is fascinated with Trump, his use of words, and his relationship with truth and facts. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/politics/2020/sep/05/boris-johnson-is-fascinated-by-donald-trump-says-ex-diplomat-lord-darroch Trump himself has said Boris is similar https://www.npr.org/2019/07/23/744076619/boris-johnson-britains-next-prime-minister-shares-similarities-with-trump?t=1599418327778 Those close to both have remarked he's following his habits and, to be honest, the bull shit he had spouted during the pandemic - half truths and lies - combined with his past history of documented racism really suggests to me he is aping Trump. That there is accurate, researched and I don't give a **** of you think it's helpful. Don't accuse me of being inaccurate, when I am accurate, lazy, when I'm not and unhelpful without offering any commentary yourself.
  21. Wonder why forest and Derby are on our list.
  22. Hopefully there is some benefit from him, Youri, and Praet playing together at international level.
