    I thought they were handing out £10k fines to people throwing parties before Christmas?

    Those fines will be still in place, this means that EVERY person will be handed a fine, not just the organizers.

    Fitty Priti probably thought that she'd already done it in March...

    I take it the organisers have got the names of the other 395? https://www.standard.co.uk/news/crim...&itm_content=1

    Police 'considering' imposing the £10,000 fine,what is there to consider? This is the reason no one takes anything the government says seriously. Get it done and fine all those there £800, find out who else was there and fine them too. Pathetic.

    Not really rocket science is it?

    Break the rules because you want to have a party? Cool. Massive fine for being a selfish twat.

    Do it again? Double the fine.

    There is no incentive to change people’s behaviour.

    Took the old man for his jab this morning, all very well organised, in and out in twenty five mins. He was just told the cancer treatment will lower the efficacy of the vaccine, fucksake and he won;t get his second jab for months. Looks like he will be on his own for a bit longer.

    Who could blame him on if he wants to see his granddaughter and give her a hug?

    I know it's not legally allowed, but if both he and granddaughter can isolate (as in, properly. No shops, no visitors, no kids in school etc) for two weeks prior to said hug the risk is practically zero.

    The difficulty many of us are going to have is that vaccine efficacy is only going to last a few months by the sounds of it. There are going to be points where the pandemic is "over" but there's some minor community spread whereby we're all allowed to go back to normal and socialising is encouraged.

    There's always going to be a degree of risk from here. It's going to fall on us to lower it as much as possible for our families rather than government mandates.

    I've been having some health issues of late and the docs are having problems working out what it is, so just in case asked me to get a covid test. I don't have any covid symptoms but because it presents in so many different ways he thought it worth checking and to eliminate it as a possibility (hopefully).

    I have to say that poking the stick in the back of my throat and up my nose wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I hope that they get back soon with a negative result or I'm going to have to resort to making up powdered milk. :O(

    Self-isolation sucks!

    Hope you get sorted soon.

    By way of an aside, I use powdered milk at work for making tea, it's fine if you mix it well before making the tea ( in a mug). Has the added benefit that no f"**er is going to steal it.

    Coffee mate is good in tea. Can’t tell the difference with semi skinned milk.

    I think I've tried that but wasn't too keen. Or was it cocaine? I always confuse the two.

    Thanks.

    My dad used to have reconstituted milk with his bran flakes. He didn't notice the difference. I'm sure it will be fine. I got it in as an insurance for just this kins=d of instance. Hopefully though I'll be able to pop up the shops once I get the results back.

    Any substance to the news about Germany proposing ‘detainment camps centres’ for those that violate lockdown measures Chris?
    Just wondering if they’ll take them there on trains and make them have a shower when they get there.

    My mam was housebound for years and used to get Sainsbury's long life milk in in bulk. I'd drink it when I visited it wasn't bad. Maybe someone could drop you some off.

    I hate milk, it's boak. Tea and coffee taste so much nicer without it anyway

    I never have milk in coffee but tea yes. Apparently if you add milk to green tea it neutralises all the good stuff in it.

    I should probably say, before anyone throws a mardy...this was a JOKE...the situation in Brazil is mortifying and I have absolute sympathy for them having to live under inept leadership.

    I’ve literally always wanted to do it. I guess I could just google ‘how do I do the crossy out thing’ but if it didn’t work it would just irritate me!!

    I tried to type it but it didn’t show on my post. Replace the b with s in bold.
