Johnson and his cabinet are doing all they can to set up a very small section of society to blame for the increase in the R rate. There can be little doubt it is to deflect from the continuing incompetencies of this Government in dealing with the pandemic.

When the current measures they've just put in place fail to work, the Government will not admit fault but blame a few 16 years olds. Utterly despicable.
I agree generally with this although I haven't heard any minister blame anyone. I was going on the stats and what I've seen on the news and witnessed myself. The fact is that the government should've slammed the borders shut in February but they didn't and haven't and people are still going on holiday abroad.

Here in Western Australia, the state government shut the international borders in late March and the internal state borders in early April. The result has been a total of 665 cases (mainly returning overseas travellers / cruise ship passengers) and 9 deaths amongst a population of 2.6 million. The down side for us is no holidays abroad, which scuppered my planned trip to Indonesia.
Question everything.

Nail on head. The older generations who vote tory and read the express will lap this shite up and tut about it when they all meet up around friends to drink M&S Merlot and gradually get more and more cavalier about social distancing whilst being convinced it's the kids who are to blame, all meeting up for avocado on toast rather save for a house like they did (before using up their equity to hoover up the rest of the housing stock).

Anyway, as long as we can all go grouse shooting no harm done, hey!

Yes, I think we should introduce culling for anyone over 60. Those that survive should be fed on Pedigree Chum which will save money and give them nice cold noses.

Don't worry, they're doing that by continually extending the state retirement age particularly for low paid workers.

We didn't do it again today.
Saturday 9th November 1968: QPR V Burnley in the First Division - I saw the Hoops for the first time and my obsession began!

I don't know about the level of support (and people who haven't been to university aren't "uneducated") but I don't think people will boo.
A lot of people object to the events to mark remembrance day but they don't go as far as booing during the minute's silence.
A lot? I think if anyone booed during that they would be made to feel most unwelcome at any football ground in the UK.
