    Deepest recession ever

    Still too many cases of the virus in the UK coupled to a failed testing and tracing system and too many unnecessary deaths

    Mass unemployment to come

    A botched Brexit in prospect to add to our economic woes

    A weak and corrupt government who don't know how to govern - only to pass the blame

    Worst PM ever

    School opening issues

    Can't go to football

    Have I missed anything ?

    Can't go to Cricket (a sport where the average attendance of a county championship game is the epitome of social distancing).

    No live theatre.

    No live music gigs.

    I really miss that - I was really looking forward to seeing Seasick Steve at the Cambridge folk festival.

    Still - I'm sure the deputy PM (or whatever he is) will enjoy his well earned holiday.

    It's not as if there isn't anything to think about is it.

    Are you doing anything to improve the world yourself?

    ... Nope ...

    I shall add that ... :)

    Everything you say is true Peakster but it’s depressed me even more over my morning coffee. I was just trying to take in the slightly cooler air in the garden (post dramatic thunderstorms last night) in preparation for the taking my 91 year old dad into Hospital for his cataract op. Oh god it’s so bleak.

    I don't think I've ever felt so hopelessly pessimistic about the way things are going in this country.

    ....and I don't see an easy way out either.

    Tell me about it - I cycle every day now.

    ....and they did catch the Emu in Doncaster.

    They say it escaped from Hull...

    Although others may have had a hand in it.

    How did it get from Hull to Doncaster ? - that's a long walk down the M18

    Still - who can blame any creature for wanting to escape from Hull.

    I see that the Regents Park Open Air Theatre is opening with Jesus Christ Superstar: The Concert, the day after tomorrow (just in time for the torrential rain, no doubt!).

    Relentless negativity from some posters on this forum is another thing to add to the list.

    Yes, there have been a few open air gigs around here as well but the hassle (bring your own chairs & food/drinks etc) and dodgy toilet facilities have put us off thus far. And then there is the likely weather....
