Frodo-Magic is right - more left-wing spin in our national media.....

    "The government continues to face criticism for its chart projecting 50,000 coronavirus cases a day by the middle of October. The lowest estimates suggest the UK could have been on track for around 8,400 cases by 13 October, with cases doubling every 20 days as opposed to every seven to eight days. The Government Office for Science says the graph was based on figures from Imperial College.

    The NHS plans to ramp up its in-house testing to 100,000 a day amid fears over staff absences because of the failing test and trace system. The overall NHS sickness absence rate for England was 6.2% during the height of the pandemic in April – the highest monthly rate in more than a decade.

    Cinema, theatres and takeaway delivery services are all exempt from the new 10 p.m. curfew. The government reportedly adopted the measure after similar restrictions were imposed in Belgium due to evidence that drunk people were spreading Covid-19."

    Hmmm, that notorious "national media" several million selling left wing equivalent to the Torygraph, Daily Fail, Sun, and Express put together? Laugh? I nearly did! (Bunk, man, utter complete bunk. Is your tongue blackened on Boris's shoes again?)

    Katz and friends, have you ever thought about opening a strip club in Saudi?

    So everything is ok because at least there are strip clubs in the UK?

    Too subtle for me, I'm afraid.

    Didn’t Johnson once edit the Spectator?

    I have had to point this out before to other posters, what you have introduced is known as a fact. We are not interested in facts, they get in the way of us being able to spout off about anything we like in whatever way we want.

    Well, you say "edit": he used to turn up every Tuesday with a box of red and a box of white, crack a few jokes, hand in his copy and leave Stuart Reid, his deputy, to do the donkey work of actually getting the magazine out, a modus operandi that he has followed in all the jobs he has had ever since. And had Covid-19 not shown him to be as incompetent as he is shallow as he is unprincipled [very, very and very], he might have gone on getting away with it.

    It is still one of the best written magazines in the UK, despite the fact that many of the opinions espoused in it are completely untenable.

    Did he not also grip inner thighs while he was there? Or was that somewhere else?

    According to Wikipedia. that well known organ of Marxist propaganda [they say it is funded by the BBC]:

    Between 2000 and 2004, Wyatt had an affair with the then editor of
    The Spectator and Conservative MP Boris Johnson. Johnson had promised to leave his wife, and the affair had resulted in a miscarriage and a terminated pregnancy. When her mother found out about the affair, she discussed it with the press. He was fired from his shadow cabinet post by Michael Howard for lying about the affair, as he had initially categorically denied it.

    It was rumoured but not confirmed that it was not Ms Wyatt's decision to terminate the pregnancy.

    It was to do with the likelihood of finding agreement in certain settings.
