    In a thread with mentions of twats like Tim Martin and Mike Ashley it's time to add someone to the good list.

    Lidl, giving staff 150 quid in vouchers and a planned pay rise has been increased a further 20p an hour than planned and backdated to the 1st of March.

    Well done lidl

    Depends what you class as guilty. When you can make up laws over night unopposed, you yourself might just find you’re guilty.

    This is no conspiracy. It’s just the reality.

    The cleverest part of this is that the government have convinced the public that it is their fault that they’ve introduced these laws. So people, like you, are actually quite happy about giving up basic civil liberties.

    The question is just when, if and how much these laws will be repelled. Given they’ve gone through so easy, without any challenge, would lead me to believe we’ve entered a new norm.


    - Forced detention and isolation can be of anyone, including children, and for any amount of time.
    -Authorities can forcibly take biological samples from your body.
    - There’s no clear access to legal rights from as-yet unidentified isolation facilities.
    - Powers last up to 2.5 years
    -Lockdown powers and the right to ban public gatherings could prevent protests against measures.
    - State surveillance safeguards weakened.
    - Protections from forced detainment and treatment under Mental Health Act lowered.
    - Cremations can be enforced against personal and religious wishes.
    - Changes to the court system. -Registration of deaths.
    - No inquests into suspicious deaths!
    - No requirement for any medical certification for burials or cremations!
    - It also indemnifies the health service should they fail for what ever reason to provide care.
    - compulsory treatment order ; forced to accept medication
    - Local Authorities will now be exempted from compliance with their duties under The Care Act 2014. Schedule 11.

    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.

    I understand there is a need for some extraordinary measures due to the current situation but any unscrupulous government can and will use this to their advantage.

    Boris tried to give people the capacity to act responsibly and we ended up with the madness of last weekend instead.

    The two year limit (yes, it could be extended but it could also be revoked in each of the six monthly reviews) should allow sufficient time for a vaccine to be developed and distributed. This would negate the need for the Bill so makes practical sense for me.

    Just to add that I'm massively in favour of civil liberties and don't believe that the Government can be trusted with just about anything. In this case the people are even more useless so we have to do something.

    Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

    That’s somewhere I disagree. The depth of this act shows it wasn’t written in a week!

    I believe this was always the plan. Johnson Warned us weeks ago that they would gradually take more draconian action. It was always in place.

    Sure there were a few pockets where people were out and an old couple walking their dog in the countryside. But I don’t blame them for this. I know they want me to blame them, but I don’t.

    I’m guessing they are still organising the administrative support.

    They have many thousands now registered, they need to determine who can do what, where and when.

    I’m on standby.

    If anyone genuinely needs and help then please let it be known.

    Btw......That does not mean me delivering a fried breakfast to you in bed in the morning.

    It probably was drafted years ago as part of a contingency plan. This is a good thing because it means the people in charge, or the Civil Service at least, are thinking about these things well before they occur.

    Whenever people talk about Government conspiracies and secret agendas I always think about my interactions with the Civil Service, Local and Central Government. In almost every case they are fundamentally useless. Everything takes longer than it should and the vast majority in charge are more bothered about protecting their 'patch' than delivering.

    The real kicker is that a lot of the front line staff are working really hard at the same time and not getting anywhere.

    Don't worry about it, this is the Internet so we just cherry-pick what suits our argument.

    Well are they great planners or incompetent ?

    I’m not talking about conspiracy. The bill is real.

    However, given there is pretty much no coverage of these changes it would indicate some sort of secrecy. Do you think the general public would be interested to know what’s in this ? I do.
    Why isn’t it being reported? Why wasn’t I consulted ? Is it because they know what they’re doing is potentially wrong?
