    Coronavirus

    Got a text yesterday to arrange my booster shot as well which I wasn’t expecting. If anyone is due a booster (got to be six months after you’ve had your second jab) might be worth checking the NHS site quoted as it’s letting you book it.

    Coronavirus

    There are restrictions on rights to protest for a variety of reasons. Abortion protesters being banned from gathering outside a clinic in London is just one example I can think of. Obviously how you should police these bans is up for debate. https://amp.theguardian.com/law/2019/aug/21/council-ban-on-protests-outside-abortion-clinic-upheld-by-court-of-appeal No excuses for this though. Absolutely disgusting. https://www.news.com.au/national/victoria/video-emerges-of-cop-throwing-man-headfirst-into-the-ground-in-melbourne/news-story/a9b73be96d8ab5615f186db867de2262

    BT Sport.... Fucking rip off.

    https://www.ft.com/content/8c0ffe51-3fee-4cd6-88ab-54401e62dada Streaming service DAZN in advanced talks to buy BT Sport DAZN, the sports streaming service owned by billionaire Sir Leonard Blavatnik, is in advanced talks to buy BT’s sports business. An agreement between the two companies could be struck within weeks, according to multiple people with direct knowledge of the talks. It would enable the telecoms company to exit sports broadcasting and focus on expanding its 5G and full-fibre networks and developing new connectivity services. A deal would reshape the UK broadcasting landscape after nearly a decade of rampant competition between Sky and BT in both the sports and broadband markets. DAZN has proved to be an emerging threat and this year it outbid Sky Italia for the rights to broadcast Serie A games as part of a €2.5bn deal. The streaming company would net high-profile English Premier League games to bolster its fledgling UK business as well as rugby union, some cricket rights and niche sports including Australian Rules Football if it takes over the BT unit. Kevin Mayer, chair of DAZN, told a media conference last week that the streaming company would ultimately “love” to have rights to the Premier League and that it was “possibly” interested in acquiring BT Sport which he described as a “great business”. There is no certainty a deal will be struck, however, with negotiations over a number of factors including price, which could be in the region of hundreds of millions of pounds, and a licensing agreement between the two companies still under way. A sale is complicated by a cross-licensing deal that BT has with Sky, meaning the satellite broadcaster has to approve the deal. The two companies have held talks over a potential change in ownership. BT could still opt to partner with another player on sports broadcasting or keep the business in-house. Talks have been taking place with a number of interested parties for more than six months after the telecoms company appointed investment bank Lazard to explore options for the business. BT and DAZN declined to comment on the talks. BT proved to be the most formidable competitor to Sky in sports broadcasting after investing more than £2bn to take the fight to the media company. Its strategy was to build a viable sports business alongside its TV service but also to defend its core broadband base against Sky, which had been offering free broadband to its sports subscribers. It has sought to reduce the financial burden of its sports operation in recent years and under Marc Allera, chief executive of BT’s consumer unit, has transformed a division that lost £400m a year in its infancy into a break-even business with almost 2m subscribers.
  7. Same, I didn’t nominate the song but there are other versions I like so I’ll post them if I feel like it. I prefer the version nominated anyway, though the acoustic one is also great.
  8. Of course it is which is why there are loads of superb covers by great artists knocking about. Feel bad for Cream coming up against it because that is also a great song but there should only be one winner here. The other three in the group are not of the same quality.

    REGRET

    Made myself a cup of tea about 2pm and opened a packed of custard creams, planning to have a couple with my tea. Accidentally ate the whole packet of about 20 when my wife came in and said we’re picking the kid up from school and taking her to Farmer Teds. So I’ve been running around repeatedly pushing her up a hill so she can come down on a toboggan, wandering around a maze, pushing her on swings etc… and I genuinely feel like I’m about to die. Never felt so sick. Praying for someone to take me out like my Lord and saviour Harambe.

    Coronavirus

    I think the important thing is to consider the anecdotal evidence of the friend of the cousin of Nicki Minaj before you decide if you want the vaccine. Nice to see @Bjornebye with the first reply to her as well.
