    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Can I get this straight in my head if you don't believe that the vaccine is the answer and if that is indeed the case how are we then able best to control it?

    One of the best posts on this partricular thread.

    'the Donald' Trump

    Perhaps the Trump thread should be closed...he's no longer relevant!

    Agree entirely...today's so-called experts take themselves far too seriously and pontificate by over analysing to the point of being boring. Another reason I don't bother watching football on TV nowadays!

    'the Donald' Trump

    You really are flogging a dead horse with your continual support of Trump! I think I see thru' the veneer and it's all a huge joke with a view of stoking up reactionary comments for the sake of appearing contrary to general public opinion.
  6. So Sir Philip Rutnam recieves £340,000 of Tax Payers money in a settlement claim but still no investigation against Home Secretary Patel and alleged bullying?

    Oh dear the 'publicity shy' Meghan can't get enough of it!

    As Agatha Christie wrote “I often wonder why the whole world is so prone to generalise. Generalisations are seldom if ever true and are usually utterly inaccurate.”

    Some great names there from the Shankley Liverpool years!

    Personally I find that there is too much overgeneralising on the BSF in general and there are some worse than others. We had it on the EU Referendum thread in particular.

    In Ripon there is a supermarket named "Booths" (I think that it's a very small franchise with a few stores in North Yorkshire) Their policy is not to play music and it's such a pleasurable experience (as food shopping goes) and even the staff appear to appreciate the tranquil ambience it affords.

    That I could cope with...sounds good. What I can't cope with is damn music blaring out of the tannoy system and there's no escape. I'm a great movie fan and when some years ago I decided to replace my entire video collection with DVD's I grew tired visiting HMV and having to put up with loud music which was basically for the benefit of the people who worked there. I therefore went online and via play.com bought most of what I wished and at a fraction of the price. My view on music is that it is often a very personal preference and I object to being subjected to banal music to which I can't even hear the lyrics...don't get me started on background music on TV documentaries especially of the Natural History variety!

    Yep! Don't blame me when the High Street shops close...I can't be having music blasted at me when I'm wishing to do my shopping!
  14. I've just read Kelly Moran's book 'Hell of a Life' and just to put the record straight after he had left the UK for good he decided to resurrect his career back in the States. He initially found the laydowns difficult to handle but managed to overcome them and got to enjoy riding them...fellow Statesman Mike Faria, however, hated them stating that they were somewhat unpredictable.

    Banal music played in shops...why do shops think playing loud music adds to the experience? I was shopping in Boots on behalf of my mum and could hardly make myself heard over the din (especially having to wear a mask) and was finding it difficult trying to concentrate. No wonder people shop on line.
