And half the government probably has shares in Uniserve so win win all round.

Tested positive today, currently sourcing a bell and an "Unclean" t-shirt on Amazon.

Yeah, my youngest tested positive at the weekend. So far the rest of us are getting negative lateral flows, but we've ordered some PCR tests to confirm. That we're still waiting for days later...

I'm guessing we caught it from our grandson who tested positive on the weekend, who probably got his from his classmate that tested positive last week. It's like bloody dominoes falling :lol:
Are there no mobile pcr testing centres near you Sly mate?, we booked our appts first try with over 300 places available. Ridiculous keeping you waiting for them.

There's one we could literally hit with a stone from our house, but no appointments, nearest free slots were a bit of a drive away.

My sister's kids keep getting sent home from school when someone even sniffles in the class, I've no doubt this is being abused to full effect by the kids :lol:

Saying that the poor little fuckers have had to endure multiple COVID tests which aren't pleasant.

This whole thread highlighting the pathetic and corrupt way tories handled the PPE crisis last year, just depressing levels of incompetence and cronyism. Oversight? Accountability? Conviction?

I hold Starmer largely responsible for the political situation during the pandemic. Greedy bastard politicians (i.e. the Tories) will always try and get away with whatever they can, and the only thing to stop them is being held to account. Starmer holds nobody to account - he grumbles with platitudes and then moves on, which has resulted in the government doing things that would have been unfathomable even 5 years ago. They don't need to hide their corruption because the opposition is doing nothing to stop them and the apathetic British public won't vote for a change until a credible option comes along.

Starmer should be storming across parliament with his ruddy ham face and battering Johnson with independent inquiries and calls for resignations. There need to be consequences and all Starmer has done for the last 18 months is prove that there aren't any.

I assume they didn't do that because the optics of trying to tear the government a new one during a pandemic wouldn't have been good, regardless of the corruption. A lot of it is coming to light now that we're in the tail end of the event and it is gradually starting to build up some traction. It's nice finally seeing some Labour MPs not shying away from actually calling it corruption.

I think the general mood when we were still struggling along without vaccines was that the government was doing its best and people saw any opposition criticism as just moaning. There is already a huge lack of trust in politics and most people think they're all as bad as each other (which is ridiculous and clearly not true, but it is the narrative regardless). People just don't want to hear it.

It has been a painful 18 months just watching them routinely getting away with absolute murder though.

Nah, I'm with Wrath on this one. Maybe that was fine in the early days of the pandemic, but ever since the Barnard Castle Road Trip incident, Starmer should have been bloody crucifying them. My gut tells me he's trying to avoid drawing the same level of ire from the media as happened with Corbyn to put him in a better position come the next election, but whatever the reason he's been an utterly useless opposition leader.

Interesting one today. Hot on the heels of my email saying I don't have to isolate anymore, we get a phone call from test and trace saying that anomalies on the genome details of my wife's test mean that we've got people coming to test us on our doorstep tomorrow morning in case we've got the Omicron variant and we're back isolating again until results come through.
Not great news for our wedding anniversary weekend. Ffs....
