  1. My wife with (48) with long diagnosed pretty heavy asthma hasn't been invited for her jab yet, some areas probably going faster than others...
  2. It is expected but I'm still not sure why. I know that I expect Fox to research the worst possible take on any given situation and then go at it hard regardless of facts or truth. I can see that they want to fight against their political enemies, but the they don't have to do the opposite to fight them. If they percieve the green new deal and fighting to save the planet to be a bad thing, they don't have to go all in on supporting heat death for all living things on earth. The logical end game to the environmental positions that Fox takes is that the world chokes to death on it's own pollu
  3. I think it's fair that anyone who is as good as Jack and worth as much to the team as Jack can have the same contract as Jack. I don't think that will cost us too much more money.
  4. It's the legal action that is catching up with the worst of them. Politically there has been very little in the way of consequences for all the lying, but as it got more unhinged it also became libellous against some big firms with deep pockets. Fox etc are perfectly happy to feed their base a diet of bs to feed their bs hungry viewers, but as soon as it starts costing them money they will run for the hills. Dobbs is not being dropped for what he said, he is being dropped for costing them money. It’s a shame it is the money motive that is fighting the fight, for it is not moral and it
  5. I'm stunned, that is an amazing effort, well done the NHS.
  6. I had a real problem finding something even approachable as affordable to work out on. I had a bench and some dumbbells (15kg per hand) but it simply was not enough weight for most of my exercises. I had a look at buying all sorts of stuff, hoping to stock up on a good set of free weights and a rack, but also found the pricing just stupidly high. Instead I invested in this: It has a 100kg stack and is relatively small in footprint so has helped move me on from the small dumbbells. It cost me £699 which I know is no small investment, but it was less than half of what I was looking
  7. I'm one of the people who was concerned about the longer gap between jabs, although certainly not an expert. I'm happy to see the news that there will likely not be a negative impact to pursuing this policy. When the evidence changes my opinion changes. We can add this to the very short list of the things the govt have got right in the last year. It seems like we are looking at the stopped clock at the right time of day here (there is still not enough evidence to convince me that the govt are competent).
  8. I only came in here because the thread keeps floating to the top of the list and it is all milk puns. I was hopeful but that mood just evaporated.
  9. I'm 99% sure that you can't appeal a yellow card.
  10. He's going to open the schools too early isn't he? Not that they are really closed anyway. He really needs to resign as should the pratt who hired him. What does Williamson even do all day? To hit his level of incompetence you have to actively avoid getting new information. Is he a big MMO player or something, cos he's clearly not spending much time in this reality?
  11. This govenment has ignored loads of advice that could have prevented us being in the disaster that we are currently in. We have the worst death rate in the world. I see no sign of them learning any lessons from that either. For me the very worst thing they can do is half vaccinate 10's of millions of people then prematurely announce the battle won and end lockdown. In that case the virus can still spread and the number of infections will rocket. Even if the number of fatalities can be kept down by the effectiveness of one jab, allowing the virus to spread gives it more opportunities t
  12. Yeah, I can see the argument for getting one jab out there quickly and I'm certainly not qualified to make a case one way or the other on that. I would also agree that the initial decision was probably not made to chase headlines. My worry is that the likes of Boris and Hancock in interviews have started leaning really hard on the numbers of vaccinated people growing at an impressive rate to mitigate against being the very worst in the world for death rate. It's not the decision that has been made that I'm worried about, it is the decision that has not been made yet that bothers me. Will t
  13. Ok, my main problem is with a massive lack of trust in the govt. If they can go around saying they have vaccinated x million people after one dose they can let the second one slip and slip until it is too late and some unintended consequence kicks us all in the butt. The Tories are way happier chasing a good headline than good science and public health, they need to be kept honest and the job needs to be reported as half done at one jab. Just imagine them making this hypothetical decision. They have 10 million people with one jab in them for two months and have 10 million more jabs availab
  14. I don't get why it can be reported that people are vaccinated after just one dose. To be properly vaccinated you need the second dose. At best it should be reported like that. You don't call the result of a football match at half time.
  15. This for me is the most interesting part of the sort of player we are after. It seems to me we are trying to move the meta of the game on from the high press, or at least find a way of mitigating against it in a really effective way. Having multiple ball carriers has given high pressing teams all sorts of problems this year. If any one of 4 or 5 players get the ball they are capable of running it 40/50 yards up the pitch on a regular basis and this is when receiving the ball under pressure. We are also good at getting runners to break with the ball carrier to give passing options and have
