Just been to speaking to some Slovenian friends. Their politicians have just given themselves a pay rise.

What I heard is they have announced a 30% pay cut for all government officials and more money for everyone involved in fighting the epidemic, like health workers and emergency services.

Before that they said they plan to increase the pay for government ministers and permanent secretaries, so don't know what will that mean in practice for them.

Aye, that was exactly my point mate.

 

However, there are also examples of the best of us all over the shop as well.

Of course mate. Times like this remind us of the best of society as well as the worst.

Their PM is a bit... I think he reclassified their pay grade, but cut the pay for 30% during the crisis to all officials, in favour of emergency workers during the epidemic.

Nah, just a pisshead

I don't get the rationale of hoarding free pint tokens, madness. I'd be getting my free pints as soon as I'm due one.

Trust Hull to provide one of the best examples of why we need more of a full on lockdown. And trust Boris to fuck things up again.

I don't think he's well known enough to get the Bannon treatment. As per my message above, I would guess less than 10% of the population would recognise Cummings if shown a photo and given his name less than 25% would know what he does and the influence he has - I mainly blame the BBC and ITV for this. Bannon had quite some profile in the US, especially with the cunt wearing MAGA baseball caps. For me this creates 2 issues, if the people want a scapegoat, he won't be a big enough name. The second issue is he has complete control and will just direct Johnson to thrown Hancock under the bus on the basis of "as if an advisor could tell a minister what to do". The British population will lap that up.

 

I agree he might not be as well known publically but I think he's too extreme for the government to handle. I don't just mean MP's and Johnson, but government departments, intel agencies, other authorities and so on. I think he'll cause too much chaos and will eventually be gone because of that. And of course if intel agencies get sick of him because they see him as a liability they'll have their own methods for turfing him out.

My mum was telling me she was in Sainsbury's on East Prescot Road the other day. A pallet with toilet rolls was being wheeled in and some fella asked how much it would cost to buy the whole pallet. He was told stock was limited to two (I think) per person. He kicked off at the (female) store assistant shouting that as a customer he was entitled to buy whatever he wanted and caused a massive scene. 

 

BELL END.

Cornershop down the road from me has a sign outside saying "If you're not a regular customer, go away". Apparently they're refusing to serve anyone they don't recognise.

Wonder how much he paid for a positive test result?

He’s a sneaky cunt who’ll stop at nothing isn’t he, so I’d want to know who conducted this positive test.

    • I was only half watching but Custis was really obviously anti starting it again. Burt and Rudd were much more sensible. Let’s face it many ‘ordinary’ people aren’t half so well protected yet they have been working or will have to soon.
    • This week marks 15 years since the greatest ever comeback in the history of the European Cup.

      And with any game packed with as much drama as the 2005 Champions League Final, there are many great stories to be told and this anniversary is no different.

      Firstly, Rafa Benitez the man in charge on that fateful evening recalls what went through his mind when Liverpool were 3-0 down at half time and how he tried to keep the confidence up within his squad.

      “We weren’t favourites because their players were top level, but we got there with a lot of confidence and we were convinced. Despite the fact that things weren’t perfect from the beginning because we made a mistake which led to a foul, and they were up 3-0, I tried to transmit confidence during the interval.  

      “I tried to keep the competitive spirit in the team and I thought that with any luck we could end up being the better team. 

      “For their part, players like Jerzy Dudek and Djimi Traore were thankful that the manager gave such a measured message and didn’t rant and rave like many would in his position. 

      “Rafa is always calm, that was his big strength,” Dudek said.

      “Even when we were losing, he always gave us advice without any panic or shouting. Some coaches were mad during half time, on fire, shouting and pointing. He was always calm. He said 'OK, no more discussions, this is what we do'.

      “Our heads were down but one thing I remember is we said we need to go out and win the second half for us, for the fans, our family and everyone who believed in us," Traore recalled.

      “So if we won the second half then OK, that is the way it is. And the last words, we said if we scored inside 15 minutes then maybe we could come back. But no-one believed that, really.   Benitez made some subtle tweaks during the break and was confident they would come off.

      “We improved when we switched to three at the back, which gave us more control in midfield. 

      “And then when it went to penalties, that was a result of luck and hard work because of the five penalty takers Milan had, we knew about four of them very well and where they usually shot”

      One of the many heroes for the Reds on that evening was Dudek and he explained how he struck up a relationship with one of the players that he had a personal battle with on that evening in Andriy Shevchenko who still could not believe the performance of the Polish keeper.

      “We were in Cardiff, working together as part of the joint bid of Poland and Ukraine to host Euro 2012.

      “We had got to know each other quite well during the campaign, and that day Sheva finally popped the question.

      “F***ing hell Jerzy, you can tell me now – how DID you make that save in extra-time?’  

      Dudek’s response was first class.

      "I smiled at him. ‘Don’t worry, mate,’ I told him. ‘You had your five minutes against Juventus in 2003, and I had my five minutes in Istanbul!’

      Dudek says his heroics throughout the penalty shootout and extra time remain a blur to this day.

      “The truth is, I can’t explain how I saved it.

      "It is one of those split-second things, where you rely on instinct, reflexes and, of course, a little bit of luck as well.

      "Do you know, for a long time after the final I thought that the initial header was from Jon Dahl Tomasson?   "I knew there had been two Milan players free in the box, but after that it was just a blur.

      “When I watched it back, I saw that Sheva had headed the first ball and then the rebound, and I think that was what gave me the chance to save it.

      “He wanted to put all the power into it, and I was able just to get my hands in the way.

      "I never saw a ball fly so high in the air, and when it landed on the roof of the net, I said to myself, ‘F*** me, we needed that!’"

      Meanwhile, the brilliant former Milan and Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo gave a fascinating and typically frank account of his emotions.

      “I thought about quitting because, after Istanbul, nothing made sense any more.

      “The 2005 Champions League final simply suffocated me.   "To most people’s minds, the reason we lost on penalties was Jerzy Dudek – that jackass of a dancer who took the mickey out of us by swaying about on his line and then rubbed salt into the wound by saving our spot kicks.  

      “But in time the truly painful sentence was realising that we were entirely to blame. 

      “How it happened I don’t know, but the fact remains that when the impossible becomes reality, somebody’s f***ed up – in this case, the entire team. 

      “A mass suicide where we all joined hands and jumped off the Bosphorus Bridge.

      “When that torture of a game was finished, we sat like a bunch of half-wits in the dressing room there at the Ataturk Stadium.

      “I’ve tried with Istanbul and haven’t managed to get beyond these words:   "For f***’s sake."

    • I watched a few Bundesliga games over the past couple of weekends. These are the players I want us to sign.   Kai Havertz - An absolutely wonderful footballer. Think Berbatov but with searing pace. Real unique talent.   Demirbay - He fits the profile of a player we are lacking. A deep-lying midfield playmaker. 
        Sabitzer - He looks more like a modern day Liverpool midfielder under Klopp. A real all rounder. A bit snide though.   Philippe Max - Beautiful left foot. It’d almost be like having another Trent but on the opposite side.
