I know Corbyn was bad
Roads are definitely at about 60-70% busy as far as I can tell, which is why it's taking so long for the virus and lockdown to go away, this lockdown will go on for many months more? This like I said I am sick of it, I am being good working from home, not travelling etc, but everyone else appears to be out and about as normal. If they make lock-downs just about affordable i.e. allow you to work, but you are not allowed to do anything enjoyable, then that's fine by them, they don't care, and they will happily do it again and again. So all we become is mindless slaves working all day and not being able to live life (at least that's what it feels like sometimes). Otherwise we would have locked down hard and short and we would already be coming out of lockdown now.I am sure thanks to Brexit, the gov will continue this removing the enjoyment from life, such as removing works rights, removing holiday entitlement now they can etc, so we end up like America with there 5 days of annual leave as it makes the big boys more money (debatable).On the other hand lockdowns do still cost lot of money but maybe as far as the Tories think, well that's "the next government's problem!". I mean they obviously don't even care about jobs, only their own pockets, otherwise Brexit would not be a thing or we would have at least stayed in the EEA (there was no vote to leave that!). Remember the Tory moto: "F$%^ bussiness". More bleakness as whoever is in charge will have a right royal mess to sort out with the economy and the masses of debt from 3 ineffective lock-downs.So on the one hand they seem to want to protect the economy by allowing people to work at the expense of actually fighting the virus, but then they appear to be perfectly happy to screw other parts of the economy i.e. no support for air travel, insufficent support for Hospitality, screwing anyone who exports to the EU, with the Brexit mess. My conclusion? The government does not know it's arse from the hole it just blew in the ground, and they are merely completely incompetent, and I wonder why did so many people vote for these F-wits, I know Corbyn was bad, but surely he could not be as bad as this bunch of clowns. The one thing they got right (vaccine rollout) may turn out to be a complete mess as it's the wrong one and don't protect from the new strains, unlike some of the vaccines.

You must live in a different reality to me!Chris.
Brexit is long finished
Quote from: Down and beyond on February 11, 2021, 04:08:49 pmBrexit is long finishedThat won't be "finished" for a loooong time yet. Irrespective of what people thought of it, or voted for, the fallout from the implementation of it will be felt for a very long time to come.
yet we shall come out better though that’s one thing
Possibly not for everyone but I have to admit for my family it is , nothing else we can do via carry on ! All the food drinks still in shop has not made any negative impact on me but I don’t deal over seas am sure it affects many people and still will for a while yet we shall come out better though that’s one thing

“Yet” a very fair comment but we are in February steaming towards March , for the average man like me all I see is full shelves now the lorries are not waiting at the docks because of paper work ? these countries will want to trade with us they need are money we need their larger a great combination
I can't see the appeal
Very bleak indeed. The sooner I can emigrate the better, but oh wait I can't now because Brexit took that right too!
