  1. At the end of last year or at the start of this year. A bill was passed so the Brexit UK negotiation department or team didn't need explain themselves in public. Therefore nothing new will be said until October I guess. We are just going through the motions of transition. However you made the goal to be wide open, in my opinion, for the thread to turn nasty by unnecessary linking the two No. One member insults everyone with a different view to them. The other defends their opinion and others, and then uses the same tone as them. It is a subtle difference, but it is a difference! This is why on the forum which I administer. I have a general section but it is for the forum subject which doesn't fit into any other heading.
  2. You started this rot of a thread Duncan. Since when has it been a forum rule to contribute elsewhere on the forum? People do agree with Karl. I don't have the time or the energy to go over dead ground. Who else will put our side of the argument on here? However when we do all what we get is constant contemptuous and mocking Why can't someone who voted Brexit be annoyed with this Government? There are parallels but you interlinked them. As a moderator and a member of 15 years. You knew where this thread will lead to. A serious lack of judgment. This forum has gone backwards to 2016 and the 2017 General election. This topic is two separate threads With regards to some of the NHS comments: I know for a fact the NHS management were told during the Brexit vote to tell staff to remain. A friend of mine who is an accountant moans all the time about the waste in the NHS. I therefore don't expect a NHS manager to think any differently about Brexit. I am too busy doing charity work to care if someone replies to my post with spiteful and snide comments, to force me to reply.

    That's awesome. At first, I thought that was a strange combination but it does work My dream BMW and Ford combination MKIII 2000E with per facelift front lights, with an ALPINA V8 engine and manual M5 gearbox

    Vintage BMW content.

    Like watching all of those There is meant to be a commercial of an E34 evolving into an E39. At the E39 launch. Never been able to find it

    I don’t know how surgeons can wear PPE for several hours. Glad they can though Anyway just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/12192383/new-covid-mutation-more-infectious-spreading-faster-original-china/amp/ Remind me to do a early stock up of toilet paper Unlike a few months ago. I have realised at times it may be best just to listen instead of having an opinion Therefore thoughts?

    I am being flippant. A bit pointless if you ask me. The regulations should say must cover mouth and nose at all times, instead of face On public transport people do wear face masks/covering. Not to cover their mouth or nose but just to cover their chin . I will have more respect for you if you didn't wear one, I will then justify to myself that you have a medical breathing condition hence you're the exemption and not a selfish twat

    So what are you doing in isolation?

    Watched the entire boxset of The Professionals on Blu-ray. The HD restoration made the quality like it was filmed yesterday. I became bored of the edits on ITV4. Some cut scenes can make you assume parts of the storyline. When you watch the uncut version, you then say to yourself ' now that makes sense' . I never expected to see Pierce Brosnan, Ruby Wax, Ben Roberts (Conway from The Bill) to be in the same episode of any TV show One episode the plot was so loosely put together. That from start to finish it was just one big assumption. I guess that story line, of that year, made the true dictionary definition expression of the meaning 'a gut feeling' Lots of retro cars. Some really nice Fords, BMWs (especially E21s). Also nice to see London scenery in HD from the late 70s to the early 80s

    The spooky thing about when I read Tim Brooke-Taylor. I had ITV on, they were showing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Just turned my eyes to the TV, and the next split second the scene had Tim Brooke-Taylor as the computer guy

    I am aware of how this virus is spread. To add to the builders, it is also not clear: if they stayed on-site, had self-isolation at home, all lived together in shared accommodation etc. The Police officer at today’s press conference briefly mentioned testing. How do we know if frontline is not now being tested? My opinion is we need to give all front line and keyworkers our full support, with the caveat of they don’t abuse their authority. Asian countries for years have been using masks and other PPE with cold/flu symptoms. We previously have not been this type of country. Our priority is for PPE for the those that need it, not who want it. Famous name brands have changed their production lines to supply and cope with the demand - until supply is greater than demand. Therefore until supply outstrips demand, being at home is the safest option. Wasn't labour in Government during the first outbreak of foot and mouth. Anyway my opinion is: As this is an unprecedented pandemic, I am currently giving the authority certain slack. When this is over we will then have time to analyse what we got wrong, what we could have got more right, and right.

    One on my Uncles is a bus driver, and one of his colleagues and friend at the same bus garage, was one of the TFL drivers who sadly died from the virus. Yesterday my Uncle’s bus was stopped during the clapping (not sure if he was on a break), people went to the kerb and clapped for him personally. It touched him
