Move next door to a school. You'll never have to do the shopping again! ;-)
Years ago I lived next door to a village primary school.

If you mean shopping for litter, you are right. Dirty little bastards. And that's just the parents!

A random observation: the PM is currently heading up his regular press conference, sans the Fourth Estate: yet a female reporter (named 'Beth', apparently) believes it necessary to appear fully Covid19 masked.

And the first three journalists asked the same bloody question, ignoring the answers given.

Just how far down the rabbit hole do you need to be to not know who Beth Rigby is?

 
My arrse.


He's gaining short term kudos and looking PM-ish whilst:

A. Thanking whatever leathery-winged, red eyed God he worships that he's off the Brexit hook

B. Whistling a cheery tune at the donations from grateful bankers who will be foreclosing on mortgages and loans in the imminent crash, making medium term gains

C. Not giving a fxxk about the early deaths, doubtless outnumbering Coronavirus ones, to come from the aforementioned economic disaster (because they won't be at his door and they'll be spread over decades).


Upfront my hoop.
. . . meanwhile, Socialists believe that current events provide great opportunity to pursue The Struggle:

“By the way when something like this happens, we’re going to see lots of our own dying as a consequence. But, you know apart from that, it’s going to give the fantastic battalion of Labour Party members, community champions out there a great opportunity of showing how Labour, and why Labour, is best when it gets on the front foot and best when it gets people together.

We need to make sure that we do that, and community organising what a great opportunity it’s going to give us.


Ian Lavery who, I believe, has something to do with the Labour Party.

I like the way Boris has appeared at the Press Conferences he has each day and that he brings experts with him to answer the specialist questions. I can see some serious bling going to these people soon.
 
I thought Boris did well not to roll his eyes at some of the questions. His self-control is to be admired; if it were me at that podium I would be tempted tempted to utter the phrase "FFS" quite often.

Did well at PM questions as was asked 'when are the self employed getting free dosh' at least 3 times during the period I can stand to watch.

Around London today i guesstimate 60% of people aren't wearing the masks properly anyway.

The standard ffp3 ones, I've seen over beards, with the straps incorrectly placed, and the metal nose strip not used.

If something so bleeding simple can be screwed up, are we going to trust the self-tests if and when they appear?
"He's gaining short term kudos and looking PM-ish whilst"
What does looking PM ish exactly look like?
I've seen 10 now, no two look the same.

Blair and Heath possibly similar...
Rictus grin an all that!

On the subject of facemasks our local Taliban* hand car washers were sporting facemasks today. By the end of what turned out to be a warm day the facemasks were worn on their foreheads.

* They are actually Iraqi Kurds and a grand bunch...

I have drivers delivering in to London hospitals (various) who have been instructed not to turn up tomorrow without face masks
Thanks to a very fast acting hygiene supervisor in the factory we'll have drivers provided with the necessary for deliveries tomorrow morning.

Not entirely sure what some people in these hospitals would be eating tomorrow had we not sourced some but never mind
