I have kind of the mirror of this. I have only 2 hours work a day but get paid full time hours and have to remember to set events off on the system at certain points so I look like I'm working. Otherwise can read, write, play guitar, go for walks, cook, shag fit birds*



*can. can.

Is this supposed to make me very jealous and angry because if so it's working. I want a drinking bird wfh.

I'm curious of what people who've had and recovered from Covid think of the lockdown. Is there a bit of resentment there?.  There must be hundreds of thousands of people by now who have recovered but the media only seems to be focusing on those who have had ongoing problems since recovering.

Having it is no guarantee of not getting it again so they are in the same boat as the rest of us until more is known about the long-term effects

It's shocking how even though the possibility of herd immunity has been roundly debunked, the media are still referring to it as though it's a potential - albeit controversial - strategy.

NPHET (like the Irish version of SAGE but independent from the government) is calling for a nationwide level 5 lockdown again, this time for six weeks. I wonder how the government will find an excuse to ignore them this time.

What is the track record of the wishing well? Does it have a good rating on TripAdvisor?

Great. Father in law had a stroke about 5 weeks ago (I bet he did, the dirty old etc) and is still in hospital - Mrs SpiderChrist is the only visitor allowed at the mo, but I guess soon enough the poor old cunt won't get any.

Cabinet meeting today: "great news! The numbers were lower yesterday than Wednesday or Thursday, we're clearly going in the right direction so we can stop the lockdown talk and get back to our main job of supporting big multinationals that don't pay tax here."

The impact of the Welsh lockdown will be hugely impaired if England, Scotland, and all of Ireland don't join in around the same time.

Jeff Bezos definitely will be sending out infected into communities to keep the lockdown going until Christmas, imagine the money the cunt would make.

That's to cover half term traffic that might be spread over two weeks someone working for the council was telling me. Might be bullshit but sounds plausible.

It's my birthday the day before so I'm going out to buy a load of cigars as antique books before non-essential shops close.

What is with the weird jargon like circuit breaker and fire break?

pandemic for dummies (for the media basically)

fire break like Wales is pristine forest and England is a raging inferno

This was mentioned somewhere last night (probably Have I Got News) - "lockdown"  has negative connotations (particularly with the, well, anti-lockdown crowd), and they believe that rebranding it will help it to slip under the radar somehow.

Couple of mates have been back and forth to Wales on mini holidays pretty much every other week since the restrictions were eased so this will throw them a bit.

Fire break seems very unfortunate as it usually means destroying a good chunk of pristine forest/buildings to protect the rest. Kill all the oldies near the border!

Offa's Dyke reinstated. Good luck getting into Wales before Christmas. Poor Jonah, woman who had sex with dolphins, etc.

It'll be interesting to see if Scotland follows suit. Nicola Sturgeon has said no new lockdown but if the current pub closures result in everyone getting covidy at home, she'll have to instigate one in the run-up to Xmas. Good.

I've been told there'll be a new lockdown by a friend of mine we'll call "D. Cummings", no that's too obvious, let's call him "Dominic C."

Yes, why lock down when you can lock up, or even more fun, lock in.
