    Just had a thought new houses i ve always thought are horrendous, there now three or four storey things with no garden,


    I know lands at a premium and you get sprawl, but if more houses could just have a small garden even if it was small its somewhere just to turf the kids out.


    Trouble is everyone always slaps a sodding extension on the garden.


    Some Old council houses where known for there big gardens in some cases they were to big but where worked out for a garden to feed a family

    most of these gardens got built on.


    and these gardens should never be allowed to be built on.

    Given special powers.


    What are special powers?


    can they fly, breathe fire, maybe levitate, teleport into another time zone perhaps

    I ve been a tech luddite for a long time, i ve just in the last few weeks got my internet sh**t together.


    I sometimes find it feking compicated, like i could do to set up ebay, amazon and any other accounts paypal etc, i dont have a smart phone i just use the laptop


    Got the banking set up and sorted but just want to set up accounts in everything else so i can pay with a credit card as i dont trust hackers and scammers.



    Can you help him?


    I mean if he could possibily visit you pass his stuff to you then go from there and you set all his stuff up on his laptop or smart phone he d be sorted.



    Or other option is you must have nerdy mates, i have one who set me quite a lot up last year,


    I still havent a clue how to use quickbooks, i pay etc, i was always frightened id get hacked.

    Hmm interesting maybe strong political views hard left or hard right get things done, like china its communist, yet somehow its a hard right dictatorship no one dare say or do anything, but i guess things get done and people obey lockdowns.


    i have and i guess always will be central maybe thats bloody useless in deccisive politics.

    OK maybe but possibly the socialist left agenda could be gently eased through labour by a level headed calm center ground sensible leader.


    Id rather have that it would help the country you have a possible working vote, back again, the hard left can slowly push new agendas, and thrash ideas out,


    It must be better than having a leader with hard right views and a party in a state of marshal law,


    Sense will prevail from both sides.


    Hats off to keir at the moment wanting to work on cross party talks on the coronvirus issues at the moment.


    Thats a vote winner for center and hard left politics to come.

    I think he will try to steer the LP gently back towards the centre ground, as generally those who had been reared in the Thatcher era, and afterwards in the Blair era, had no stomach for Corbyn's political philosophy. But interestingly, the young people had, and flocked to swell the LP membership under Corbyn.

    So Starmer will have to be careful not to alienate these young people, or he will find them quickly deserting him, and looking for more radical leaders to follow.

    Its a strange thing when you are young your generally fairly centre to hard left in your thinking, especially from school and defo if your in college or uni.


    However the working class vote shifted working your nuts off and paying quite a bit of tax, generally the sites are quite centre to right wing with left keeeping opinions quieter, the demographic changed on the sites post blair really somehow he pulled left and right voters then kind of made everyone of working class go right.


    As a lad at college i was a leftie, hating tories, hating landed gentry, hating farmers even though is was from a small farming background, i used to find farmers feking ignorant and bigoted at times, wheras i got on better with people studying horticulture, and aboriculture, who on the whole where left thinking.


    Forward to working in building I found myself working with an "old left" thinking foreman, he was a nice man but quite draconian, 3 long tea breaks a day adding up to sometimes about an hour and a half to two hours a day, but maybe we wernt that well paid who knows, we did work hard but as a lad i wanted to work to earn money to do well, just held back by old men with hard left opinions it was nearly work to rule i couldnt saw a bit of wood as i may upset the joiner and if i worked hard i was taking work off others. Utter madness.


    Politics are more divisive than ever, harder opinions, generally the uni kids are left wing


    On the sites your get quite a lot of hard right opinions i find unsettling almost like the hard left opinions of yesteryear. Both had racist and bigotted undertones.


    I basicly worked with someone who was a bit like John prescot years ago i never want to be trapped like that again.


    Self emplyment has freed me, like nothing else,


    As for the younger voters i think there more split than ever, i new one sparky who wanted to punch corbyn in the face and he was veryracist and opinionated, i arnt to keen on him a lad say in his late 20s whos gone it alone, he s a good sparks but luckily i dont see much of him


    Then you get other lads generally who work for someone have a kind of left leaning you just know,


    Id say amoung the young ones its a 50/50 split.


    Labour has to be center to get any chance of getting in.




    I dont think theres a dark force, but we are diligently obeying, however the cashless situation at the moment is a bit concerning, the power that be can work out where you ve been how much you have spent simply by your digital footprint and your mobile in your pocket, at present i am leaving the mobile at home it never leaves the table.


    but they will be able to link up your card payments to cameras so pretty easy really you swipe and the camera links up your face on cc tv.

    as easy as winking, to truly be undetectble you need to be able to use cash and have no social media or certainly no pictures on there.


    and either no bank account no card use but i guess the drivers licence scuppers that, unless your old and hung on to the paper ones, i had to go photo and surrender my washing machined paper one when i did my bike test at least 20 years ago.


    Nothing to hide but its amazing how they will realise how they can basicly tag everyone who has a card.

    Get your money back i bet its B n Q s own brand, usually mc allister, absolute garbage, when i hadnt a bean to scratch my backside with

    i used to buy b n q tools there crap.


    I went through 3 chopsaws in a year, one battery drill, a sds hammer/breaker drill just exploded accross a garage that i was using the hammer option to remove a garge door pillar. (just a few bricks)


    They got to know me at b nq i used to take one back with receipt get another usually every 3 to 6 months.


    Then they brought a rule you hadnt to be in a trade (ie just for light domestic use)


    the guarantee was brought in just for three months then the gaurantee had to be set up online as b nq refused to honour there tools.


    Because they are rubbish

    I get the duty of care with the nhs, because lets face it people will sue for either grievance or money issues, and then a doc or nurse might just say i am not going to ventilate this patient as i might get suid if they die, everything becomes legal and messy at the moment there just trying to save lives in somthing they know little about.


    As for phone, its simple really just leave the phone at home,

    I just wish i really wish everyone had the clout, finance , self worth and thought, to be able to say sod you,


    I am not coming to work,


    If they must go to work, they need like all factors the right ppe,

    couldnt dividing screens be fitted in vans to divide the workmen up ie two workers per van= social distancing and a perspex screen between,


    Vans have to be cleaned before and after work,


    and as for public transport where do you start with that?


    Apparently i ve heard that company mini buses now are out (provided by companies)

    so the loophole will be public transport and using vans, that way its not the companies fault.


    They will just tell the workers to follow government guidelines.


    Imagine your a subbie, two employees on for you neither own a car or can drive, what do you do tell them to get the train,

    or risk it and fill your van


    I am guessing a lot of employees will be riding in the back of vans






    i can i saved for years, but it could dissapear if ive not done my sums right and a big tax bill to pay.

    There seems to be a one rule for home workers/managers and another for site workers, its madness,


    I am hearing tales of whats going on and its not fair at all.

    how can workers suddenly magic up more transport/vans so they sit in one van each

    imagine a site with say 40 people there, or more you d never have a place to park that many vans

    and if they use trains to get to site how the fkk is that safe.


    but the legal term is they have to follow "government guidelines,

    Find it strange this has surfaced now, when a global pandemic is rife, there economy is starting to get going after lockdown,


    and they didnt know this before Christmas when the world spends billions on Chinese goods.


    What is the odds that the chinese economy rallies now, they fire up there export machine again and they suddenly discover a top class vaccine that works perfectly probably from the wu han lab.


    but they will have to cover that up so it will be invented in another lab defo not the wu han lab ok.


    Also funny interviews over there, if a reporter goes to a lab over here someone usually is open speaks to the reporter,


    there body language looks kind of fearful, the lass on the microscope looks like shes worried sick.


    Thing is our government wont ever call this out, because china nearly owns, our phone networks, our nuclear production, and a lot of our industries like steel,


    So we say were going to give you economic sanctions for relesing this virus they will say fkk you we will pull the plug on funding your economy.


    So now laugh all you want but theres a bit of a danger that if the world econmies tank especially america, then china can become a leading superpower.


    I am still of the opinion this was accidental but the fallout of this could be china could dominate from now own .


    in the uk we really shouldnt have let Huwae have the rights to the 5 g

    we were warned by security, but i gues they were the cheapest quote.


    We need a good strong leader post this pandemic, someone calm diplomatic but tough,

    Just a heads up on video conferencing. zoom is getting in trouble for security issues,


    Ie hackers can hack easily into a zoom conferance, watch the cam, and turn on and off your mic on your lap top.


    Its also been used for surveilance, ie bosses can watch and listen to there staff to see if there working or just leaving the computor on.


    There getting there knuckles wrapped in the U S but just be ware.


    I d say


    tape over camera when your not using it,

    be careful of details ie bank sort codes passwords etc and the like when the lappy is on or near by say your on the phone to the bank.


    Apperantly its a very basic security system to get into zoom,


    We ve all done but careless talk while the b tard lappy is in the room opens the door.

    Not a bad theory but i am more with the theory that someone accidently got infected from the bats, or was "volunteered" to be infected from the bat virus to see what happened.


    Showed no symptoms maybe after quaranteen in the lab test or a scientist who accidently went home felt a bit iffy didnt dare say anything for fear of dissapearing then accidently infected half the neighbourhood.

    Hmm intersting, i am guessing the virus is in theory passed on droplets so in theory there heavier and drop quicker so


    the theory is the virus can only moved by droplets in a cough, sneeze or droplets on surfaces,


    So lets take smoke,


    Assumption is the smoker breathes it out, so ok droplets are heavier smoke billows out moves a long way but droplets sink quicker as heavier than smoke, if droplets "catched a smoke wave" still tricky as surely droplets heavier than smoke, its


    scenario 2 person coughes it hitches a ride on smoke so i m guessing the people have to face the same way ie not opposite each other still tricky as again the weight issues surely


    aftershave now thats got me thinking that i do find tricky, how does scent work is it atoms of perfume, never thought of that, when you smell perfume i guess you inhale a small atomb of perfume, so that one does sound crazily more plausable.

    Apart from my daily walk round the cemetery, not much going on here.

    Jesus is it that bad. lol


    sorry couldnt resist .


    Very low on sudso (washing up liquid)

    just enough milk for a week,

    no eggs,

    no bread,

    used the last ring pull baked beans, and the can opener has finally decided to be knackerd.


    But have a bug fekin big bag of porrige, a big bag of tatyees, a few tins of beans some dry hard cheese, that i melt into the jacket tates, so yeah not to bad really,


    I still can eek out for two weeks max, easy.

    You know in a weird way if while this pandemic progressed we had the economy hijacked,


    So i have a few limited savings, but if i was deemed fit for work or immune, and could work safely say on my own two and from work, not in any contact with anyone,


    It would be a mini socialist state for a year perhaps, sort of put the economy in hibernation in a hi atus


    So when i can work safely and risks are lower or i have developed an imunity found out by testing i could work basicly for the state,


    My tax, utility, general bill in hibernation till the pandemic deemed over.


    I work and pay into the state, it takes my money in return , no tax, low bills a ration of food to what i need to live


    So what the customer pays me goes direct into public coffers to finance this mess,


    its pain but worth it, we do this to keep the econmy moving


    Total differant way of thinking


    Everyone chips in


    So if you have a high salary your still on that high salary but it goes into the government and you get your rations. till the pandemic is over.


    More incentive to work from home, be sensible as the more the thing spreads the more commie things get.
