    Is it that time? Can’t see anything on tv schedules.

    Not that I’m that excited....

    Daily Telegraph says 8.00

    I'm expecting to be disappointed.

    While listening to him, bear in mind that the scientists wanted much more of a lockdown.

    No need to be, there is nothing to be announced that hasn't been drip-released in the last week. Plus he has made the statement to Parliament and its in all the news now.

    This is a prolonged and painful explanation of why dithering is preferable to directive. It is minutely researched and presented as scientific support of governmental cowardice.
    Also, when I read it I felt as if I were supposed to be sitting with an audience who had been handed PostIt notes to write on, and then stick on a panel by the door, which would then be picked off and binned as soon as we left the room.
    It did not help that the diagram at the beginning looks like a big bottom, so given that you need to twizzle your head right round to read the sideways words, it makes you feel like you are inspecting an ahrsse.
    Yawnety yawn.

    Na, Bake Off is on instead, mildly more informative and useful than Boris.

    What else is on? Even a rerun of The Big Bang Theory.

    8pm. Fade in on Boris Johnson. He stares at the camera without speaking. The nation holds its breath. Suddenly, a knife is plunged into his back. The attacker? Noel Fielding. He licks jam from the knife. The PM was a cake all along. 'Welcome to the ******* Bake Off' Noel screams.

    I have a bottle of Argentinian Malbec which I think will have more to teach me.

    Bake Off will be delayed, apparently.

    Oo, is Bake Off on tonight? I stopped watching it for a few years and for some reason (whatever could it BE?) the thought of watching cosy BS on telly appeals to me right now.

    A "perilous turning point" was when the Nazis were sending their fighter planes over to try and secure the skies ahead of a land invasion. It warranted a concerted and cohesive response.

    Shutting the pubs an hour early, is not the answer to the perilous situation as we are in.

    I’m not sure why Covid won’t appear before 10pm?

    surely pubs have to close...
