    It's because he imagines they vote Labour.
    Identity politics at it's finest.

    Victorian tunnels, mostly. Incredible builders and engineers, those Victorians. Relied heavily on migrant Labour of course, much of it from Ireland.

    What worked Simon? Prior immunity probably.

    If the strangulation of freedom and liberty to prolong the lives of overwhelmingly, very ill pensioners in their 80s, for a few months, is classed as working, then we may as well wave goodbye to our lives as we knew them.

    What we have had from day 1 is a virus which circulates predominantly in care homes and hospitals, killing folk who were at deaths door unfortunately.

    People die, some years more people die than other years and that is life.

    What is governments role in all this? To protect me from killing myself via exposure to known risks? What next? A bio passport who knows when I've had more units of alcohol than "permitted by law"?

    You know where this is going. CCP-style surveillance, every privilege sanctioned by the State and you should be thankful for it.

    Big-state, backed by big-tech, backed by globalists, for your own good.

    The vaccine efficacy is more lies.



    Zero evidence it is reducing hospitalisations, more likely herd immunity achieved. Same fall in cases all over the Northern Hemisphere. More pseudo-science pushed by corrupt politicians and scientists to exonerate them from their horrendous decisions which have dominated our lives for a year.

    The point being they are all pointless but the French and German's won't take anything developed by British scientists because they are petty xenophobes with an agenda.

    If you’ve driven a lorry into London, you’ll know how hard it is driving any large vehicle round the capital. Now imagine spending 8 hours a day doing it. The turnover for bus drivers in London is massive, almost WWII bomber crews levels of attrition; why do you think that is if they’re on anything like the money @DUNCAN DONUTS thinks they’re on (clue; very few of them are)?

    Most of the private route operators have been reducing the basic wage steadily for a decade; every time they recruit new drivers, they bring them in on new contracts at a very low basic, with a 5 year incremental scale. To get anywhere near £28k you need to a) work for the same company for 5 years minimum, and b) work pretty ****ing terrible, anti social shift patterns.

    Seriously, why do you think bus companies in London are always, in any economic climate, advertising for staff? Try it yourself: If you can get your PSV license, or whatever it's called now, you can get a job driving a bus in London. But as I say, you wouldn't last a day.

    We all know you can use google Duncs. The fact you believe any old **** you can dredge up to support your prejudices, merely serves to illustrate your ignorance.

    You're still trying to equate driving a purpose designed vehicle along a predetermined route, that has clear markings giving them priority, with navigating a larger vehicle, set up primarily for long hauls, through the tiny backstreets that are subject to changes in restrictions, to a destination you're not liable to be familiar with.

    As I said initially, and you've been failing to prove otherwise, you were talking bollocks.
