to be honest when our Alan visited about '59' he said 'he had never seen so many ugly women in one place at the same time.'


Phew, that was well before my move South! ☺️

Lockdown masks washing hands social distancing self isolating and it looks like a second National lockdown is looming. It's going well then, bye bye economy it would seem like the virus is winning.

It seem s like the panic merchants might. Why do we never get numbers for hospital admissions but just woolly things like doubling every 8 days with no base figure given.

I participate in a major opinion poll every week (YUGOVE) and according to the latest figures 75% are very dissatisfied with the way the government and the media have handled this.

Ive had 2 delivery people so far today and neither wore a mask or seemed worried about social distancing. I suspect that more and more people of all ages (not just generation Z) are thoroughly fed up and are gradually opting out of rules which they see as misleading and irrelevant. Soon it will be only the "oldies" who comply.
 
Rules are for the guidance of wise men and the blind obedience of fools.

It's probably only the oldies that actually need to.

Hancock is still chanting the slogan hands face and space. It isn't working.
What are the countries who are doing MUCH better than us doing that we aren't ?.

Far too woolly and incomplete. We never get figures for recovery but we have had days when reported deaths were more than serious or critical cases. I think the media just pull figures out of the air, mince them up and spit them out in any random order.

lol, so do we think they have just began using this tactic or has it always been that way
i wonder just how honestly they reported the Battle of Britain                               how many of you knew about the Polish contribution about them flying Spitfires that Poland had bought and how many Germans, the poles the canadians the ausies and the yanks who also flew in that battle shot down?, were any of them even mentioned?...
no, our media all must first qualify from the Hans Christian Anderson school of Journalism

It depends on what source you read - certainly the Telegraph has covered the various contributions fairly well over the years. The Poles flew in 302 and 303 squadrons and there were also some Czech pilots with them. There were also pilots from the West Indies, Eire, even one Israeli. I've not heard of Poland buying Spitfires before - certainly they didn't have any on charge in Poland. What is the source, please?
During the BoB 302 and 303 were equipped with Hurricanes, converting to Spitfires in January 1941

its just something i have read Mike, there was a polish squadron bought and paid for by the poles themselves.... but i'm sure you know of all the nationalities..
my point is it would not have been mentioned at that time...
"Had it not been for the magnificent material contributed by the Polish squadrons and their unsurpassed gallantry," wrote Air Chief Marshal Sir Hugh Dowding, head of RAF Fighter Command, "I hesitate to say that the outcome of the Battle (of Britain) would have been the same."[7]
