finally the idiots from Cheltenham should be shot up a dogs arse for the selfishness
as my mother said"i will shout at them... from a distance"
There will be some teachers who go on the lash and will do nothing for the next few weeks. Hopefully they will be disciplined when they get back to work. Most however seem to be struggling with various IT systems. I know one who was just told to look up Google Classroom and figure it out. She spent all day today trying to get set up and has her classes up now and posted homework etc for the weekend. Didn't get a very positive response from the students who all thought they were off. They are in for a right shock on Monday. She has video conferencing set up and ready to go. She'll even be taking rollcall! They'll be calling her some names when they get the mails.

Don't think so. We seem to have taken responsibility here and taken very decisive action.

During the financial crisis, we took our medicine and got ourselves out of the mess even though it meant a nasty dose of austerity.

There are some idiots but you find them in any society. Look across the Irish Sea or Atlantic if you want to see moronic behaviour at government level.

Isn't that where CinemaGuy45 is meant to be going shortly? You don't suppose....?

This could be awkward.

The staff at my local cinema were wearing gloves when handling money. Sensible thing to do

We're a month too late for that, the country is riddled with it, and every day we let tens of thousands more in.


The ONE single advantage we had over the rest of europe and we did'nt bother our bollocks to use it.
