Bit sensationalist? By 40% I presume you mean "highest portion of those that bothered voting" ?

 

Which further serves his point.

 

We are ruled by a govt voted for by a minority.

Spent enough time in Glasgow (For work) to know to stay well clear  :thumbup:

Haha, yeah. Their motto of "people make Glasgow" always tickled me. Absolutely no mention that the people of Glasgow are bams.

Perhaps so, but this is a system fault rather than a fault of any given government, no?

Just found out an ex work colleague of mine from back in the day died of Covid yesterday.

 

He was only 56 and leaves behind a wife and five kids.

 

Sad news :cry:

I'm sorry to hear that, it's pretty shit isn't it? Another of my friends lost a parent yesterday too, that's the second one. Really not that old, either.

Leicester's coronavirus rates hit highest levels throughout the whole pandemic
'This is the most critical time we have faced'


ByDan MartinPolitics Reporter
19:03, 12 JAN 2021

Coronavirus infection rates in Leicester have this week hit their highest levels of the whole pandemic.

Today the seven-day incidence rate in the city reached 570 cases per 100,000 people eclipsing the 529.9 cases per 100,000 during the November spike in infections.

The current infection rate is nearly four times the level that pushed the city into the UK’s first local lockdown nearly 200 days ago.

The city’s public health officials have again urged people to stick to the national lockdown rules to try to keep the virus under control while the vaccine is being rolled out.


They are urging people to abide by the ‘Stay at Home’ rules and only go out on essential trips or for limited exercise as well reminding them not to mix with people outside their households.

Officials have also warned that the city’s hospitals are under increasing pressure treating people suffering from the virus.

More than 2,000 people in the city have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last seven days.

Latest Government figures (Tues) show there are 324 people with Covid-19 being cared for at the Leicester Royal Infirmary, Glenfield and General hospital with 31 of those patients on ventilation.

The Department of Health and Social Care says 20 people in the city have this week died of Covid-19.

Leicester City Council’s director of public health professor Ivan Browne: “We have seen a really big increase in our infection rates, certainly post Christmas, and in terms of the pandemic as a whole this is the most critical time we have faced in terms of the numbers, the actions and the fragility of the system.


“It's important we keep on top of this and comply with the rules.

“I know we have been through a lot in this city and we have been locked down a lot longer than anybody else but this is the really critical time for us.

“The difference this time is there is hope around where we are headed with the vaccine but we cannot take our eye off the ball in terms of the key things we do now.”

“We must all stay at home except for specific reasons, such as essential shopping, exercise or work if you absolutely cannot work from home.


People have been reminded to:

Stay two metres apart from anyone they do not live with.

Wash or sanitise their hands regularly.

Wear a face covering on buses, in shops and in any space where distancing is difficult.

Book a test and self-isolate as soon as they get symptoms.

If they test positive, continue to stay at home for at least 10 days and until they feel better.

My findings in Asda last night were:

 

1) everyone had a mask on, even a guide dog or it might have been a body warmer/gilet

2) they have decided to close all checkouts after 8pm so everything is self service and chaos for full trolley shops or people with crying babies/desperate for a pony

3) Chicago Town have released a limited edition cheeseburger pizza and its x 2 for 97p which is the real story here. I challenge anyone to find a happier ending in the whole of 2021.

 

Just to add to this. I had a Ristorante frozen pizza for the first time last night and it was delicious. Always thought they looked at bit poverty but how wrong I was. 2021 eh..

If that's those little ones, what you could do is cook both, invert them (so the toppings face inwards) and use them to sandwich an actual burger, so it replaces the bun

Blame the system not the party.

 

We could have had an alternative to FPTP but it was voted down by the public.

And this is why you are pound for pound one of the most influential posters on here Julian. I'm picturing x 8 rustlers burgers smashed together and then shaped in to the necessary monster patty to go in between the pizza cobs.

 

I'll be sure to post the results if I survive it.

Ay! They are decent aren't they? Which one did you have? I find the trick is to find that delicate balance between it not quite being cooked enough and cooked, there's a gap of about 30 seconds and you can't be pottering about getting the condiments out whilst you wait.

Just catching up on on @Col city fan v @StanSP, makes a change for me not be in a argument.

 

Gotta ask Col, you seem to criticise some of the Leicester players, why don't you train up and convince Rodgers to sign you, and do it yourself, its easy to pick fault all the time, but why don't you put yourself in the position to make a difference? They all do a difficult job. :ph34r:

The answer to that one is simple

Firstly there are players I’m hugely complimentary about and positive. Some I’m not, and negative

:dunno:

Secondly, though I tried my best as a footballer to become pro (😆) it was clear I never had it... I had ‘deceptive pace’.. I was actually slower than I looked

But politics... anyone can get into local politics can’t they? I’m not arguing with @StanSP

I’ve agreed with him on this thread.

But rather than giving the government a volley, during the most testing time I’d imagine ANY govt have had in living memory, why not focus more on the good (Eg lots of vaccines being given, shops now insisting on masks) and/or join your local political group? Vent frustration in a meaningful way rather than coming on here and picking fault with Hancock et al

👍

This thread is incredibly negative and, in my mind, some of the comments literally despicable when many people now are trying to turn this mess around

eg people can volunteer to give vaccines. Many are volunteering

So from now on we can't pick on any politicians in their response to managing COVID because you don't like it? 

 

 

I think it's great vaccines are on the up. I hope it continues and I hope the government can meet their targets. I don't recall saying otherwise. (do you have selective reading?) I shouldn't need to join a political group to justify how I feel. I'm perfectly happy discussing it on here with everyone who wants to read/post, even if there are disagreements. The beauty of a forum as good as this :thumbup:

My post was in jest of course :D We all know you'd never get picked over Big Dan.

 

But when people say you shouldn't be negative about the government, or score political points or whatever, you can only do it if they give you a reason to do so. I think @StanSP has acknowledge on numerous occasions that this isn't an easy challenge, and it a hard job, but also on occasions pointed out where they have got things monumentally wrong. Here's is a primes example of an mp talking about how delighted he is to be providing food for poor children, when he voted against it. We had mps last week talking about how great it is to remove vat from sanitary products, yet when they voted on it a couple of years back they voted against it. Its quite right to criticise in these situations, I think they forget at times most of what they say is on record.

Anyone that's given a overnight slot would make the effort to be there imo. Even if it means taking a day off work or whatever to do it. I'd be there in a shot (pun intended).

I'd be delighted to go during these hours and I dare say many people where convenient would.
