    Yes, that seems to be the REAL epidemic!!

    The problem is, all this 'incompetence' is rather convenient if you sign up to my theories on the matter, and regardless of that, could have dire consequences if they tip the balance of positives cases to the point that it triggers another national lockdown!

    In that respect, I sincerely hope that whoever's 'incompetence' was responsible for the error is suitably punished, i.e the person (or persons) sacked. I know if it had been me in the situation Steve explained, I wouldn't have rested until I got to the bottom of the balls up - as trust me when it comes to that kind of stuff, I'm like a dog with a bone!!

    i suspect that she would have been implying incompetence, but as you say that still isn't good enough. I don't know what to believe any more, so from now on I'll believe nothing...

    Exactly. How can the government hope to instill confidence in people, in terms of them supposedly knowing what they're doing, and most importantly folk complying with their rules, when they're behaving like a bunch of clueless clowns?

    So no wonder folks are thinking 'Fuck this, I'll do what *I* think is right' instead. In the circumstances, with all the 'clear as mud', mixed messages they're getting from the government, how can you blame them?

    When you're a leader, you have to demonstrate leadership skills, as well as portraying consummate efficiency and professionalism - and I've seen precious little of that from this Tory government since this whole thing kicked off.

    Indeed, they've largely been a shambles.

    Thumbs up "There is no evidence of a second wave" - health expert claims...

    Some bloody sense in the mainstream media at last [definitely worth a read]: https://www.aol.co.uk/news/2020/09/2...isters-warned/

    And Sweden got it right!

    The only shortages last time, were those caused by the morons. If everybody just shopped normally nothing would go wrong!

    Its all predictable, its an animal survival instinct built into everyone of us, initiated by fear, however; i would like to think that some of us have evolved enough to have realised that fixating on self preservation only leads to one thing, extinction!

    Nah, the thick c*nts have got all the bog roll!



    Anthony, there's ZERO condoning of that type of idiocy. If they possessed even a tiny part of ONE functioning neurone, they'd KNOW that there was equally ZERO chance of there being any food or shite-roll shortages!!

    Therefore, panic-buying of that nature CANNOT remotely be justified by anyone deserving the title of a sentient and intelligent human being - and if they don't, I'd be at the front of the fucking queue, SLAPPING it into them until they BECAME so!!!

    Or... Fining the fuckers the value of five year's supply of oven chips from Farmfoods, banning them from buying scratchcards, suspending their Netflix accounts, and confiscating their 'flatscreen TVs and loyalty cards for Primark!
