    Boris Johnson and Other Tory Liars

    They're enclosed areas where you as of tomorrow have to sit at a table socially distanced from everybody else and in my area only go to the pub with those from your own household, and wear a face mask every time you get up from your table even to go for a shit, I'm absolutely fine with keeping...

    Boris Johnson and Other Tory Liars

    Honestly there's very little reason to shut every pub anyway. Shut ones that aren't enforcing social distancing and be done with it. The primary transmission is in confined spaces and home environments, we should encouraging people to meet family in pubs and restaurants - if you shut them people...

    Boris Johnson and Other Tory Liars

    This is a bit disingenious, the pubs can't sit anymore people than they were. Most shut at 11pm anyway. Table service is a far bigger issue. Massively reduces the number of people who can sit in a pub. Apparently Kier Starmer is popping on TV tonight for a 'right of reply broadcast' which...

    Boris Johnson and Other Tory Liars

    It's about media management, nothing more. There's absolutely no reason these couldn't have been brought in yesterday alongside the press conference by discredited scientists. Just look at the press this morning, what should have been papers full of 'Take a New Look At Labour' are cow-towing to...

    Coronation Street Corrie

    I think the reality is they can't keep it up to date unless they go back to live episodes - which would be insanity as they couldn't bank them. Although that said social distancing in much of the north west has been the same for months until tomorrow so you think they could keep relatively up...

    What else are they supposed to do? You can't mix between household in most of the north west.

    Boris Johnson and Other Tory Liars

    Just realised that Kier Starmers speech at the virtual Labour conference is on Tuesday. That's the same day that the PM has suddenly decided is 'just perfect' for a national address on his winter lockdown strategy announcement, is he really resorting to that level of petty politicking 4 years...

    Getting even worse. You've probably heard about the £10,000 fine for failing to self-isolate..... however read between the lines and it's an attempt to deter people from getting tested you get fined if 'you test positive or are contacted by contact tracing and told to self-isolate.' In other...

    Coronation Street Corrie

    They can be caused by human activities in that there more likely to happen if you were to withdraw too much water from an area or something as a water company, the idea you could then pinpoint the exact location of a sinkhole to someones back garden is beyond farcical..... Sorry but seen as...

    How long til they're gone?

    I missed this one the other day. The short answer is practicalities - same as any of survey method. Surveying say 5,000 folk who are demographically selected to match population is accurate enough without surveying millions

    Coronation Street 60 years and counting - Character By Character

    Ivan Cheveski Ivan Cheveski was played by Ernst Walder. He was the husband of Linda Tanner who fled home to Elsie nominally to get away from Ivan but in reality hiding the secret that she was pregnant and unable to confront Ivan about it. The two soon reconciled and moved together into...

    Coronation Street 60 years and counting - Character By Character

    Something a bit different as neither of these a really worthy of full biographies.... Elsie Lappin Elsie Lappin was the first owner of the corner shop in the show, though she quickly sold it Florrie Lindley and upped sticks within two episodes. The character was brought into the initial...

    Coronation Street Corrie

    At least we don't have suffer David's tantrums. Is that because he's maturing as a character? No, it's because storyliners have given him a personality transplant as they didn't want two shouty raging stories at the same time....

    How long til they're gone?

    I actually think Corrie surprisingly the strongest in this regard..... Ken and Rita, Audrey will be the oldies until their replaced by Gail who will be the resident oldies until Sally and Kevin replace them until Peter, Tracy, Nick and Leanne, Carla or any combination take them over at which...

    Coronation Street 60 years and counting - Character By Character

    I seem to remember a throwaway comment in one of those Corrie documentaries by an actor (possibly Bill Roache) that Jack was basically a real life version of Albert a lot of the time. Can't for the life of me remember which one or who said it though......

    Coronation Street Corrie

    The twist makes the story even more utterly ridiculous and Brooksidesque. You can't just 'arrange' for a sinkhole to appear in somebodies back garden. That's not how stuff like this works...... This isn't even 'suspension of disbelief' it's 'this isn't possible but it's a cool story'. It's a...
