Re: WTF is happening in the UK?

....and most every other country in Europe..... I know for a fact that in Spain the attitude was "if it looks like Covid-19, it must be Covid". Death certificate ? You are joking, again I KNOW this, having had a friend die in hospital, no explanation given nor certificate issued. Autopsies in a coun...

Re: The disgraceful BBC

Biased and Inflammatory Reporting  I wish to complain about the biased and inflammatory comments of your OB reporter in News at One, 03 June, attending a demonstration. In comparing the way in which persons of colour are treated in the UK in a similar fashion to those in the USA, your reporter drew ...

Re: Covid - 19: How is it affecting you?

FD, no. Clean enough for eels, dolphins and other aquatic life. The Thames is only polluted when rain descends and the sewer overflow flaps open. And it hasn't rained for months, and the only boats are the police and garbage tugs. Right now you could probably drink the water. And the young lady was ...

Re: Darwin Awards

Oddly enough,because it hasn't been reported in the Meeks, I saw two bright-red canopies come off the top of the walkie-talkie yesterday and land near the Thames.

Re: The disgraceful BBC

BBC News at One, outside broadcast reporter, today talking about how blacks are denigrated in the UK, referred to the railway worker lady who died after being spat on by a man with Covid-19. Only according to the BBC last week, CCTV showed he didn't spit, investigations showed he didn't have Covid-1...

Re: Anybody flown as pax since lockdown?

My Godson and GF flew into Spain a week after Spanish lockdown started. No checks of any sort (health, paperwork) at Spanish airport arrivals or using the TAV.

Re: SCAMMERS !

The Reg warns today of the Contact Tracing Scam. It seems when HMG set up a system whereby a Tracer phones or texts and reports "someone near you is testing positive but we cannot divulge their name" it never occurred to them how scam-friendly this is. Way back when I used to be the Jape Master Gene...

Piers Morgan being a total prat yesterday complaining that the new law - it isn't - prevented husbands and wives or similar having sex in their own houses. I thought of contacting PM and suggesting he have a rant about BoJo not having made incest illegal during lockdown, but it's easier to reach ove...

Re: Covid - 19: How is it affecting you?

Only the pubs and restaurants to open in Islington and we are back to a normality that's never really gone away. Pity we are moving house in exactly a week. Did a walk around Rotherhythe and Wapping yesterday. A posse of police on foot by the River, joking and laughing, taking no notice of anyone ex...

Re: Covid - 19: How is it affecting you?

Solar cells banned in Spain after biggest power utility snuggled up to the Spanish government, paid bribes, sorry ' 'contributions' and got solar power classified as 'unfair competition'. We have a solar farm nearby, was supplying power to Roses town, now disconnected for that reason. I don't know a...

Re: Covid - 19: How is it affecting you?

Indeed yes. There's a Belgian registered one appears in our community in Spain each summer. Brought down on a trailer as due to its superiority it can't drive non-stop from Belgium to Spain by itself, unlike inferior petrol and diesel powered contrivances.

Re: Rant of the Day v2.

Part of the problem is that we have not had a single sale via the website in over ten years. I just wonder whether it's better (and certainly much cheaper) to sent clients who express an interest, one or more pages which I have now downloaded and stored. Er, yes.

Re: Coronabollocks..

He detailed her requirements for clothing, position, length (of time I guess) while he rogered her from behind. Not the sort of thing one usual...

Interesting article in today's Sunday Times anticipating an upturn in the Catalan property market as wealthier Spanish (?) seek rural property, French move out of lockdown, and British seek easy residency paperwork before Brexit. But who knows..
