Full lockdown incoming soon, there's no other option.


Alex ‘I’m going to have to level with you, it’s going to be tough, but because of those disgusting thick northerners we’re going to have to have a short, sharp ‘breaker circuit’ definitely not a circuit break like that enemy of the people, activist lawyer, Islington remoaner said, that’s a silly idea. I’m off for a Twix and a lie down. Godspeed’

They should/would have announced it by now if they are going to do a full lockdown. 

 

They will just carry on locking down the whole country individually. 

 

I think its based on the David Moyes Taffs tavern way of winning.

VAT will be payable on PPE from November in the least shocking news today, it had been exempt previously.

 

Do they not even care anymore about public perceptions.

 

Never let a good crisis go to waste...

Call me a cynic...but I reckon they’re waiting as long as possible so they can then time a national lockdown to reduce numbers in time to let families mix for Christmas.

Recruiters advertised for a £2,000-a-day boss at the chaos-hit Test and Trace system - with "experience of turning around failing call centres."

The eye-popping job advert was revealed hours after new data showed the privatised contact-tracing system had hit a new low, with more than 100,000 contacts not reached in a week.

Posted by recruitment agency Quast, the advert said initial contracts would run until March 2021 "and offer a rate up to £2000/day."

It said the successful candidate would have "experience (and evidence) of turning around failing call centres" and be "someone who has examples of quick wins".

Sweden has the best PR of any country in the world.

 

It’s expensive as fuck, it’s full of Nazi’s, it’s intolerant of anything that that isn’t tall, blond and hot and their suicide rate is about four in every three citizens. 
 

In relation to Covid their parliament had to apologise as it killed all the old cunts so the hot fit ones could drink craft beer in the snow and look smug and happy.

 

I don’t care if they have a park every five meters and their kids don’t do any testing until they’re 53, they’re miserable, insular, elitist, xenophobic pricks. 
 

As a weekend away though 5*.

Paid 43 quid once in Stockholm for two cakes and two brews. Maybe that's what they really mean by Stockholm syndrome.

I absolutely love Sweden, spent a few weeks there a couple of years back .
 

It’s a utopia until you scratch the surface, listen to the views and look at the ins and outs in the bank account though.

Oh, yeah, amazing.

 

Stockholm, Malmö, Gothenburg and then the bridge to Copenhagen.

 

It’s beautiful and soul affirming, but the above stands.

Four people out of three commit suicide? I guess Sweden isn't too good at maths either.

I'm part Swedish, great grandfather was a merchant sailor from Gothenburg who docked at Liverpool and never left. This explains my ayran looks and attitude.

Never let a good crisis go to waste...

Have we ever paid VAT on PPE? As in, was it removed to assist in the crisis period and now it’s returning to normal, or we’ve never paid it and now they are doing it for the first time?

    • Interesting but not particularly surprising to me the demographics in that article matching up with The demographics in a similar report on whether a European super league is a good idea.   In both, younger fans; and Chelsea and Arsenal fans think a super league is good, and so is VAR.   in both, older; and Liverpool fans think VAR is bad and so would be a European super league.
         
    • Yes, couldn't name John Mclaughlin. 
    • I might be completely off here but I always got the impression Lampard and Terry didn’t really like Mourinho in a similar way Carragher and Gerrard didn’t particularly like Benitez probably because it’s a lot harder to enjoy playing for negative shithouse managers.  The difference between the two situations was that there were plenty of rumours of Carragher and Gerrard not liking him in their playing days and playing a part in getting him out but since they’ve retired they’ve been up his arse. There was never anything like that at Chelsea but you get the feeling since Lampard and Terry retired that neither are or were particularly found of Mourinho and don’t speak to him either.

Liverpool fans may agree with their captain when you look at the stats. Jurgen Klopp’s side have had more goals disallowed by VAR than any other Premier League team in the 2020-21 season so far. The poll shows just 28% of Liverpool fans believe VAR is being applied consistently, as do 31% of Manchester United fans, compared to 39% of Arsenal and Chelsea fans. And just a quarter of Liverpool fans feel VAR has made football more exciting.  The FA Cup third-round tie between Brighton and Crystal Palace on 8 January 2018 was the first domestic game to use VAR, and it was subsequently used in one Carabao Cup semi-final and the Carabao Cup final between Arsenal and Manchester City. The Premier League introduced the technology for the 2019-20 season. In July of this year, Fifa took full control of VAR from the sport’s lawmakers, the International Football Association Board (Ifab). Since then, there has been an increase in referees using pitch-side monitors for goals, red cards and penalty decisions. VAR continues to rule on factual decisions and advise on matters of subjectivity. Premier League fans still to be convinced Scottish football authorities have discussed introducing VAR, but the technology has not yet been used in professional league football there. VAR was introduced in the German Bundesliga and Italy’s Serie A in 2017 and Spain’s top flight La Liga and the French Ligue 1 in 2018. As with those European leagues, changes have been made in England to try to adapt and improve the system. But the poll showed more than half (51%) of Premier League fans feel VAR is applied inconsistently. However, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said earlier this year that VAR was delivering on the “principal reason” for its introduction in improving the accuracy of decision-making. “In key match incidents we are up to 94% accuracy with officials, 97% with their assistants, so we are seeing an impact on results and a positive impact on the league table,” he said. What they say about VAR Former Manchester United defender and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville: “[Referees] look like they have been programmed like robots. They are briefed like mad, they are programmed to the nth degree, they are frightened to death.” Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho: “We’re going in a direction that’s really bad for the beautiful game, the game that everybody fell in love with.” Former Tottenham and Newcastle midfielder and Match of the Day pundit Jermaine Jenas: “The players and managers have been unbelievable in mentally getting over these hurdles that VAR has thrown at them. It’s supposed to help the game, and it’s making it far worse.” Savanta ComRes interviewed 5,476 UK adults aged 18+ online between 20 and 24 November 2020, 2,100 of whom qualified as football fans for the purpose of our survey according to Savanta-gathered data on football fans and their demographic profile. Data were weighted to be demographically representative of UK adults 18+ by age, gender, region and social grade. Savanta ComRes is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules. The full poll is published here       “I’d rather play without it.” “Ruining the game.” “I don’t know the rules any more.” The video assistant referee (VAR) was brought in to improve football. But Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne have all spoken out about controversial decisions made by VAR recently. And it seems football fans are also less than convinced by VAR in its second full season in use in English football. In a poll for BBC Sport, only a third of football fans across the UK said they believe VAR has made football better. The poll of 2,100 fans, carried out by Savanta ComRes, shows that while 30% of fans think it has improved the game, 44% of fans actually think it hasmade football worse. While most fans are now given the option of seeing VAR decisions on screen – whether in the stadium on watching on TV – almost half of fans said they believe the introduction of VAR has made football less exciting. The poll also shows: 36% of supporters aged 18-34 believe VAR has made football better, compared with 29% of fans aged 55 and over. 59% of fans aged 55 and over said VAR is making football worse. Arsenal fans (44%) are more likely to believe that VAR has made football better, while 37% of Chelsea fans, 34% of Liverpool fans and 32% of Manchester United fans felt it had improved the game. Younger fans are split on whether VAR is being applied consistently (35%) or inconsistently (33%) by referees. Controversial VAR decisions West Ham v Aston Villa, 30 November – Villa manager Dean Smith said VAR “frustrates everyone but there’s nothing we can do about it” after Ollie Watkins’ late strike was ruled out for offside because of the position of his arm  Manchester United v West Brom, 21 November – “I’m very disappointed with the decisions from the referee,” said Baggies manager Slaven Bilic after referee David Coote reversed a penalty decision, ruling Bruno Fernandes had touched the ball in a challenge on Conor Gallagher Crystal Palace v Leeds United, 7 November – Patrick Bamford said VAR is “ruining football” after his equaliser for Leeds is ruled out because his outstretched, pointing arm is offside Everton v Liverpool, 17 October – Reds manager Jurgen Klopp said he “doesn’t understand these decisions” after VAR fails to review a challenge from Jordan Pickford that injured Virgil van Dijk, while Jordan Henderson’s late goal was ruled out for offside against Sadio Mane
