  1. Coronavirus

    Electing a tubby pisshead who doesn't look after himself properly as PM just as a vicious respiratory disease breaks out. We've not had the best few years as a country, have we?
  2. Coronavirus

    Ironically we're pretty experienced at surviving plagues that strike us down at will. Maybe the religious nuts should consult us.
  3. Coronavirus

  4. Coronavirus

    Heck of a post preview, that.
  5. Coronavirus

    I'm even avoiding jobs around the house that involve getting up a ladder because of the aforementioned sod's law.
  6. Coronavirus

    Steady on. Outdoor exercise will be banned within a day or two anyway and then this thread will be everyone's only outlet. That'll be fun.
  7. Coronavirus

    It's a tricky time, like. Most of us are just trying to muddle through, interpreting the rules as sensibly as possible in a way that works for us and navigating our way around these little Englanders who love nothing more than to bring everyone else down to their level of misery. At the same time, the wifey from across the way has been standing in the street outside our house making loud phone calls for the last two hours on and off, and my inner Stasi is definitely coming out.
  8. Politics

    Oh, now they see the value of a broad shadow cabinet.
  9. The Great Self Isolation Trivia Quiz 2020.

    I think I've only ever heard it from Stevie talking about himself.

    Howay Boylesports, I've waited long enough
  11. Yes Gemmill...

    I know, I know, I know, I know.
  12. What are you drinking?

    A few I've had before, several I haven't, plus the """G'n'T""" for the hell of it.
  13. What are you drinking?

    Stocked up on Crodino before this all kicked off, and just took delivery of a mixed case of ≤0.5% brews from this place: https://drydrinker.com/product/pick-your-own-mixed-case-12-bottles/ To coin a phrase... that's quite a range
  14. Mike Ashley -- Football Cunt

    Yeah, well we didn't concede to San Marino in the last 89 minutes and 50 seconds of any game.
  15. Mike Ashley -- Football Cunt

    The idea of an Irish team qualifying for a tournament on the basis of goals scored feels like quite the novelty these days.
  16. Mike Ashley -- Football Cunt

    Aye, this is worth another look since we've all got a bit of time on our hands. Taylor and his team definitely come across as wallies at times, but the qualification group was properly tough - Norway were in pot 4 and went on to be FIFA-ranked 2nd in the world by the end of 1993 - and the press are absolute lowlifes. Still should have been picking players on form though.

  18. Coronavirus

    A friend's brother went to Cheltenham and is just emerging from the worst of the virus after 16 extremely unpleasant days. Absolute madness that it went ahead when we all knew what it would mean by then.

    Speaking of Grigg, someone's made an... improbable edit to his Wikipedia page
  20. Coronavirus

    That's horrible Troops, wishing her (and all of you) the best.
  21. Coronavirus

    Trouble is capacity at the moment is being achieved by cancelling all non-urgent surgery and other procedures, and you can't do that indefinitely, so what constitutes "capacity" is necessarily going to be lower in the future. I do think you're right though, in that they'll be eager to ease the restrictions ASAP even if it means imposing them again soon afterwards, same as they were eager to avoid the restrictions in the first place. People need to be introduced to new concepts things slowly (for better or worse).

  24. Coronavirus

    Well, true - if enough people realise that money is only imaginary anyway...
  25. Coronavirus

    Instinctively, it feels like the world is so much more connected and efficient nowadays that it should be able to bounce back much more quickly from a short-term economic hit than it did in the 1930s, for all there undoubtedly will be a massive short-term hit. Though obviously if we reach a point when the actual structures of capitalism are being realistically questioned then all bets are off.
