    Glad you got over that shy Tory phase, mate.

    It was interesting when I went for a beer on Saturday. Firstly it was great to see my friends. The main reason why I went out. I didn’t get to grips with the set up signing in/walking one way and table service with some silly app. Outside 6 to a table and 2-3 on other table all chatting together. I know all of these people and pretty much know their political views.
    I expected a few stupid comments a like the ones Watford says, however I didn’t hear anything bad towards the government. A joke about wallpaper and 2 remarks about Starmer being a w222er but every person said the vaccine roll out was superb and all they were interested in was getting back to normality.
    For what 1 or 2 say on here is the opposite to what people really think. 1 The vaccine rollout has been superb. 2. People understand that this was a pandemic and are looking forward to getting back on with life.

    That sounds like a diverse and robust sample.

    It's really quite simple, things have been done wrong, ie. Late lockdowns, care homes, test & trace fiasco, ppe, schools, flights etc which have resulted in extra infections and dare I say it casualties. Things have been done right including early purchasing of vaccines and a military style vaccination programme which compared to the test & trace actually is world beating. These have hopefully saved us from from having even more infection and casualties. That about sums it up

    Oh and inbetween billions of pounds spent. Some of it spent very wisely and some of it handed over to Tory donors for little or nothing.

    Thing is Watford I was right 3 times before regarding outcomes. Don't listen to the rubbish you read in your political bias papers... listen to the real people and how they feel. Today we recorded 1 death while in other places in Europe that is not the case. The government has done a fab job with the vaccine roll out and while a few idiots will try and moan (because they don't like this news) the rest of us are happy and want to return to normality. Starmer had his chance and blew. You keep on moaning but not many are listening.
    Well done to the government.

    Whatever mate. I see the same old faces on here spouting the same old rubbish. Strollers post last night was a classic cry baby 'spit your dummy out' because the government is doing well and sadly Labour are... duds. Now you are doing your usual...tut tut. I will let you guys cry in your beer and moan about Boris and the government, while I get on with some important things like paint a door frame. :emoticon-0148-yes:

    Sounds good. If you can think of a way the government can bring back the dead then you might not look quite so ridiculous congratulating their performance.

    German MEP says:
    "Simply by leaving, the UK's saving €14bn of budget contributions each year.
    €17bn for the SURE unemployment programme & €140bn gross contributions for non-participation in Next Generation EU.
    That amounts to €171bn saving for the UK.

    BRITAIN has managed to already save £150bn, according to a German MEP, who suggested Brexit was the "beginning of the unravelling of the EU".

    I had my second jab today .. brilliantly organised and run courtesy of a team of NHS nurses, a large team of St John's Ambulance, and local Covid Marshals ( like me).

    The success of the rollout is down to NHS and the British people...not a dubious contract or private firm in sight.
