Nationalise care homes, build nightingale care homes, transfer all care staff to NHS status. Etc

I think you just need to believe in Britain a bit more.

@Christmas Tree  Every “solution” you’ve vomited out here is a political one btw, I’d like to hear what your definition of a “moral solution” is, and how it differs from the political ones?

I like your thinking CT, socialism through nationalisation, we could maybe  call this National Socialism?  Put the elderly in large prefabricated care warehouses, for their own protection. We will need to focus our minds on this problem, but at the same time we need to keep it fun, like a camping trip for Grandma. Perhaps call these new structures concentration camps?

How have we come to CT now advocating for mass nationalisation? :lol:

 

Why is it that socialism and "radical left wing" views are now the answer?

 

It's as if there's a magic money tree after all.

I think I would put it this way anyway, in answer to that point about nationalisation - either the Tories have been lying for a decade about the money available and how "it would be nice to make things better but we can't afford it" and CT has been very aware of this, or he's going to have to accept that we have no alternative but to throw the elderly to the wolves because there's just no money to do anything about it.

 

Same as the homeless before them, young people from disadvantaged backgrounds before them, domestic violence victims, mental health sufferers, the disabled, and anyone who happened to have a bad run of luck. They've been dying for a fucking decade, so why is now the time when we have money to be able to make a stand?

I think what CT is trying to say is that us lot are missing the mood of the country. We don’t want blame, we don’t want argument as if this were a General Election, we want a contribution to the national effort to get us out of this crisis. We want hope optimism and faith in our country. We need less negativity.

Yeah my goodwill for this country and government is long fucking spent tbh. You don't fuck over half the country with transparent lies and political game playing and then get to turn around and expect solidarity with the regime responsible.

 

Appreciate that others may be more forgiving than me, but I firmly believe forgiveness requires acceptance of fault - and that has been the farthest thing from forthcoming.

There wasn’t a fucking hint of compromise when it came to Brexit. Now we’re all supposed to shut the fuck up and not ‘politicise’ this because of inconvenient truths like governmental incompetence leading to one of the worst death rates in the world even though we had more warning than many countries. This government and the stupid drones who continue to support it can fuck off and die

I think they are largely still being guided by the science but it’s their communications, implementation and messaging that have been fucking awful.

They are being guided by the science, it's just that half of the cunts can't read a map and the other half don't want to listen to the guide. :good:

 

As for poor old CT, all he ever wanted to do was talk about his beloved Tory party and cuddly Mike but people kept bringing politics and two relegations up, I mean, isn't that what a forum's for? :(

The stupid twats with their Eton educations and Oxbridge PPE degrees didn't fucking understand what exponential meant. It's that simple. Cost us thousands of lives and probably trillions of pounds.

There was a piece on the bbc a while back where there was an armed militia in America who were ‘prepared’ for a breakdown in society in the wake of covid-19 where they would be the ones who had restore order and save everyone from marauding looters etc. You could tell the fuckwits were actually hoping it was going to happen and were excited at the prospect. Apart from it making no sense in relation to the actual situation unfolding it’s the sort of fantasy that you might expect from a 7 year old playing soldiers rather than something a load of grown men were pinning their hopes on. Now it turns out everyone just stayed at home and they didn’t get the chance to shoot loads of  people they’ve taken to protesting in support of ‘freedom’. If they were black they’d all be shot dead

Funny how the fuckers who voted for these jokers don’t want to politicise this. Own your shit for once because, until you do, the country is knackered 

 

Funny how people try to rewrite history.  The choice was between a buffoon and a clown.

 

Labours' failed Corbyn experiment is more to blame for letting the right wing take over the Torys' than the centre voters are for not voting for a clown (and his circus).

Absolutely it is. That was such a convincing argument that we don't need to understand who these 'centrists' he's referring to are, since the ones noted in the data sure as shit weren't voting for Brexit enabling government of incompetents. We also don't need to understand how Corbyn somehow forced the Tories to throw out all their moderate MPs while kowtowing to the absolute lunatics, that's just a given.

 

Hopelessly disingenuous. It's beyond even arguing with people who think like this anymore, rational thought has entirely deserted the ideologically driven, evidence shy, persistent right wing voters. It's just tribal bullshit.

Where have I rewritten history? That’s a rhetorical question btw. Also I’m far from being a Corbyn fan but the idea that people who voted for these cunts are less to blame than those that didn’t is about as stupid as virtually everything else you’ve ever posted on here. And you were a Tory long before Corbyn came along so who’s the one actually rewriting history here? That’s another rhetorical question btw

Philip Pullman.

 

Johnson is announcing his new plans at 7pm on a Sunday night in a pre-recorded statement for one simple reason: The fridge-hider doesn't want to be held to account.

He's completely bypassing parliament because he doesn't want opposition MPs to scrutinise his proposals.

He's not even doing it during one of the daily Coronavirus briefings, because even the limited scrutiny of our largely servile and complicit mainstream media is too much for him to bear.

And he's not giving a live speech, because his minders know that he's simply incapable of not going off on into dissembling waffler mode, and giving away the real agenda with a repetition of something like "take it on the chin", or his utterly bizarre 'superman of capitalism' delusions.

Apparently he didn't even run his plans past the Tory cabinet before printing them up and pre-recording his glorious address to the nation, because he's so allergic to scrutiny that he won't even risk the possibility of mild dissent from his own damned government colleagues!

Johnson and his inner circle of unelected hard-right ghouls are running the country like a tinpot dictatorship, where nobody is allowed to scrutinise, and the citizens are expected to eagerly tune in to listen to the latest pronouncement of the divine and unquestionable leader.

Germany’s R straight back to 1.1 when the lockdown was eased.

 

I can see the UK beating that and fucking up any chance we have of getting an end to the footie season

Apparently the thing tonight starts with Johnson in a JCB, driving through a wall with COVID written on it.
