    No new infection here on the faroe islands for the last 24 hours, wonderful news. It started hard here compared to population but the government have acted perfectly so far.

    He has to be careful here. Too critical, without constructive input, and he may inadvertently raise support for Johnson; agree to cross party talks/cooperation, and he risks being tied to flawed policy. It may seem like an easy open goal, but his response here needs to be both measured, constructive, and hold the government to account. Could be trickier than it initially seems.

    The business closures will last as long as they will because we have failed with this virus control since day 1. We have had at no point the ability to test enough people, so the virus was able to run wild. It run wild because the government wanted it to. We had an opportunity to stop people travelling in from high risk zones and refused to take it - our match against athletico Madrid being an example of that, when those same Spanish fans wouldn't have been allowed into a stadium in their own country, we allowed them to fly here, drink in our pubs and then take it to the stadium. This was allowed because the government wanted the virus to spread with their herd immunity plan. The NHS are having to refuse to see people who have this virus because they don't have the staff (partly due to self isolation, partly due to 10 ywars of austerity) or the equipment (testing kits and at times beds) to identify who has or hasn't contracted the virus. So every cough or temperature leads to a complete 14 day lock down, even for front line workers and their entire household, even if nothing is wrong with them. A test would negate the need for this. The length and the severity of this lockdown is 100% down to government strategy. The football clubs are making their decisions right now to a back drop of an expectation the earliest they may start playing football is June and that is likely behind closed doors - and this is seen as best case. When we locked down, there was an expectation of just weeks, in fact I recall the prime minister saying 3 weeks and at the time football was planning to restart at the end of April. The government has fucked this up at every turn, going back to 10 years of austerity and their ignoring of reports that we were under prepared for a pandemic. They delayed stopping people from high risk countries coming here and deployed a strategy that was ridiculed globally. The lockdown will be as long and as deep because of government incompetence and that in turn hits the economy longer and harder, football too. But the Tories don't want you talking about that, they want you talking about how rotten to the core football is rather than look at their failings. Hancock wanted to change the news discussion and he's succeeded. Today even Andrew Marr has been discussing it on his show, with a segment dedicated to fucking Gary Lineaker. This is not a football issue, this is an issue of government failure.

    As pathetic as the weak ass shit justification the club tried putting out. Thai isn’t a ‘grey area’. Anyone with any fucking decency knows this is fucking outrageous and the owners are complete cunts.

    I wasn't sure about BBQ Pringles, but getting "a meat box delivered" is definitely a euphemism.

    Based on replies to my tweet about this, the defence seems to be that because the club pays tax they're entitled to do this. Another argument is that there are wealthier businesses doing the same and some of those aren't even paying the 20%. All of that is true, but just because they can do something, and just because others are doing it, doesn't mean they SHOULD do it and it doesn't fucking make it ok. It's appalling and I'm ashamed. A few days ago we were all ripping Spurs and Mike Ashley, as well as Branson, that Wetherspoons nonce and all the other fuckers. Then our club does this. And for what? It's literally peanuts in the grand scheme of things, especially if the players are going to be taking a 30% cut. All this bad PR just to save a few hundred grand. Makes me sick.

    I've done a deal with Saltaire Brewery. They're delivering me 9g casks of ale; I've sourced a supply of one gallon containers and I'm pouring beer into them and delivering to doorstep across Leeds and Bradford £25 a gallon. They pay me via PayPal and I deliver wearing a fresh pair of blue gloves every time. I'm absolutely fucking snowed under with orders. Brilliant to see how chuffed people are when they open the door and see a gallon of freshly poured IPA on their doorstep and it's keeping me well busy.

    I think you're mixing up Lords with Sirs. Title of Lord can be passed down through the family, so they're likely to be exclusively Tories. Sir is a title awarded to an individual, you can't inherit it, you need to earn it (whether most if them deserve it is another story). So there's a chance of there being a few good eggs in that bunch who have gained the title through altruistic means.

    You see you've bought into it. It's fsg's fault. Or whatever that prick of a CEO is called. LFC is no different to a large portion of businesses in this country. Because of this governments mismanagement of the health service for 10 years and their absolutele shit show at handling this crisis, their cash flow has gone. So what they were bringing in money a while back? You think that's not accounted for? If we end up not finishing the season and sky want their money back, clubs everywhere will be facing bankruptcy, although admittedly probably not ours. This fund off the government doesn't last forever, it lasts for 3 months. It's get it now or don't get it at all, yet the ramifications of this crisis could go on for many more months or years. Nobody is questioning any company who's taking this money, except those in the premier league. It's fucking double standards and the government themselves put it out in the media to get people critising football and worrying about what is on a national scale just pennies, when there's plenty we should be worrying about how this crisis is being handled. No PPE? Who cares, what are the footballers doing. Failing to test front line workers for covid? That's not a problem, some football clubs might do what the entire fucking country is doing and put people on furlough, oh and they'll still be on 100% wages. I don't get what ynwa has to do with anything in this instance, you think John Henry is one of us? He barely knows where the city is. Everyone will take home exactly what they do today. Everyone is keeping their jobs. As someone pointed out earlier today, the club had already paid the stewards (and I assume other match day staff) up till then end of the season. The rest is just the Tories making you worry some fucking prick from Boston who's made his money out of the stock market has more obligation to the people of this country than Branson, Ashley, Martin and Langsam.

    This is not aimed at you in particular, but pretty much everyone who's slating the club over this. The funds have been made available to everyone, the government has not applied restrictions. Companies up and down the country will be claiming this money, yet we expect some moralistic behaviour from football clubs? I don't get it. This money is to recompense people because government incompetency had forced a business lock down. When this disaster is over, we will all be paying the tax burden on this debt, football included. Banks will be taking this money. Cunts like Branson will be taking this money. Fuck heads like Ashley and his empire will be taking this money. Yet everyone will have to pay it back. Until we start slating everyone for taking this money (then I have to ask why are we making it available), why is the club wrong (and football in general)? They will share the tax burden, but not the help at a time when their cashflow has dried up? Sorry, you all sound like fucking Tories. Next you'll be telling the players to make up the gap while letting people like Branson and that cunt who runs wetherspoons off the hook. That cunt Hancock brought up in his press conference the other day that players should take a pay cut. Why, because footballers are just working class plebs who don't really earn what they're paid unlike their fucking Eton mates? Nobody is complaining for billionaires to help out here. Nobody is asking the fucking CEO of Tesco's who'll be making a fucking bundle on toilet roll sale alone. No, apparently all these are legitimate ways to make a fucking bundle on the crisis, but hey, footballers just play football, surely they can help? They don't really earn that money unlike Tarquin and Rupert at fuckhead and sons hedgefund. It's much easier to point a finger at footballers and football in general to distract from the absolute shit show this government is making of this pandemic. You should all be ashamed for buying into it. You are letting them make you think this has anything to do with football. This is a fuck up made from our government who've neglected this country for 10 years so we have a health service that is actively killing the people who work in it and is incapable of helping the people it's there to serve. But hey, let's get upset because a football club has put a few people on furlough because they can no longer do their jobs because nobody can walk out the door in case the healthier service breaks.

    Cunts. Fucking thick, stupid, greedy, immoral cunts. You expect it from the likes of Ashley and Green but this really pisses in the wound.
