She said he deserved it.....and her social and political position DOES matter. What she says will influence those whose votes she requires.
(I have no social or political reputation to uphold)
She apologised, but only because of the backlash from social media.
I am not going to....and if you consider that to be graceless, then that is entirely up to you.

Just a thought.
Post 96 are you deluded or what? she did say i hope he gets over it, never wished the end of the man, though i would not have complained.

Re: Corona Virus

Who mentioned the end of the man ? I didn't. Read through the posts properly if you're gonna spout off.

post 96 MP says

'I hope the man gets over it, but I hope it takes him four years and that his bed shakes him onto the floor every night with the rigours of illness.
And even that would be too good for him'

about another human being ? Really?

I thought this was a friendly forum not one of recrimination, I'm sure I am not the only one to bite my tounge at something I have said but thankfully most people realise I am human and humans are prone to errors unfortunately

Yes, that is what I said and I make no apology for it.

It was my considered post...I post with honesty..if my opinions or thoughts are
too strong for you then you have two options.
1) don't read my posts.
2) report the post if you feel that it goes against forum rules.

Construction at the NEC started on Sunday and we aim to be open by the end of next week – so it’s all hands on deck. We’re in late-stage discussions with other Nightingale sites, and hope that this is the first of several pop-up Tesco stores that will help the NHS staff in those hospitals.

That looks very close to your suggestion.
I have just sent a note of thanks to Paul Callan at the CEO's office at Tesco.

I have said that it is a start....and asked for my thanks to be conveyed to the team and business partners that enabled this development.
Not sure if I will hear anything further.

Accybeme, it is both a friendly AND helpful forum.
I cannot count the times that members have helped one another out, both with information and practical help.

Re: Corona Virus

The forum is about opinions. I too have opinions and post honestly, as I see it.

Re: Corona Virus

I’m wearing mask when I go out, I know a lot take objections to mask wearing but how many people are carrying the virus and & passing it to others without realising it, to me if the virus is passed in droplets we breath out then wearing a mask must be helping to stop the spread the virus, how do others perceive the wearing of masks

Re: Corona Virus

There are only certain masks that will give adequate protection.(they need to conform to the contours of your face)
Once a mask gets moist from exhaled breath it becomes permeable to bacteria and viruses and care needs to be taken when removing masks and disposing of them.

But it is whatever the individual feels is right for them. I have absolutely no objections to people wearing a mask for their protection.
We are taking supplemental vitamin C and D....it is what we take every winter.
We usually stop taking these the weekend the clocks go forward, but this year we have continued.

I have also been gargling with listerine night and morning...it is only a precaution....and there is nothing to say it is effective.

my view on mask wearing as well. its a few around my area that annoy me as it seems a new fashion statement in keighley. the majority seem to be women in the early 20,s. that comes as no surprise really.

Re: Corona Virus

Most of the people I have seen wearing proper masks have been older people.

I have seen women with their cowl neck of their jumper pulled up as an impromptu mask...and a few younger chaps wearing bandanas as masks.
They might think that this will protect them but I have my doubts.

What people forget is that if someone has coughed or sneezed the virus can remain airborne for something like three hours....and you can absorb it through contact with the eyes....so you need to protect not just your nose and mouth but your eyes as well.
