    Thanks to everyone who took part in the George Floyd thread.
    I am sure we are united in mourning his death and sending prayers & good wishes to his family and friends.

    The thread wandered into other areas but let's leave things where they fell for now.
    Whatever position you took I respect your right to hold your view.

    Just wish they'd unpin the coronavirus thread and let it drop away...

    I think the worst thing I've seen on TES was the decision to lock that thread.

    There was probably a sudden flurry of complaints.

    Not to worry.
    What are you drinking?

    It is worth looking back at the early days of the thread... As a timeline of what was known by some of the general public, it helped me to put into context what was apparently happening/ not happening in Westminster at the time.

    I do not remember much about it except that some people thought it very unlikely that a coronavirus should start infecting people in the vicinity of a biological laboratory working on the same coronavirus.

    This Tweet is spot on:

    "Trump says today is " a great day for George Floyd". He has got to be certifiably insane hasn't he?"

    I'll start with one of these:

    Thank you very much.

    It was locked following some posts regarding Boris Johnson after he went into intensive care.

    So you would have a bottle of wine just to start with? Crumbs, Scint, a night out in your company could well become epic.:)

    I am outraged. I am sure this fluffy bunny has been oppressed and forced to take part in your photo shoot. Sheer exploitation. Hang your head in shame! Hmph, I need to have a lie down in a darkened room.
