The problem is that Westminster is ordering this without offering financial support for the region. They're spaffing billions on their cronies at Serco and Deloitte for Excel spreadsheets and systems that don't work, but are ordering businesses to close in Manchester with no financial aid for the business owners.

It's a f*cking shiatshow, but pretty much par for the course with the Tories these days.

They have 72 days to sort out Brexit so you'll have to forgive them if they seem slightly distracted.

They've had almost four years.  I like masturbating as much as the next guy, but eventually you have to put your willy away and do some work.

All you write is true, but Andy Burnham's "Give us more money or we'll stay open and more people will die" was not a great negotiating position.

Could you speak english please?

You want to close everything?  Then make sure you have a plan to take care of the people.  Seems like a reasonable demand to me.

"Spaff" is a deliberate reference to Boris Johnson, from when he said that investigating historic child sex abuse is a waste of money.

I got turned down for a Covid home test kit today.

TransUnion, the credit checking company who they've brought in to ensure people don't request extra long cotton buds which they're not entitled to, can't match my name to the address that I've lived at for six years and was registered to vote from in the last three general elections.

Join the party, pal.  Congress and Trump have been arguing about another round of stimulus for about four months now.

Mancunian here (ok, I'm half-Mancunian) and yup. Tier 3 lockdown for us. I have lived under the conditions from the original lockdown. go out only when necessary. shop only for essentials (Halloween attire is essential. I have plans for it) I don't mix with other households - if you knew my neighbours, you wouldn't either. not saying they're all idiots, but drugs & alcohol pass that way on a regular basis, as do ambulances and police vehicles. I'd be pissed off with them, but they're a source of free entertainment. except for the absolute and utter moron whose flat backs onto mine - and his online gambling habit. and that he makes Gordon Ramsay sound like a choir boy... not saying he swears a lot, but at 4am, one does tend to feel a little murderous - so I'm going to do the one thing that's guaranteed to annoy him - learning to play the descant recorder!
and yes - at stupid o'clock in the morning too!!!!!
(trust me, you would too. I have told the other neighbours - they're fine with it. I've even saved all the recorder music I need for this purpose.)
so yeah, Doris Johnson is an absolute idiot on an epic level. Andy Burnham is just wanting to ensure nobody has to suffer any more than they have already. we were spectacularly crapped on anyway for being 'oop norf'.
the tories hate the north. that's fine - we hate the tories. they've earned our lack of respect for them.
I'm gonna guess that effigies of Doris Johnson and his bunch of cronies will be remembered on Bonfire Night and welcome any one of the tories getting an air bomb enema.
although, I wish we could dump them all in a skip.

When you just need to think up a name for your new antagonist for Superman before you can slip off down to the Yorkshire Grey for a couple of pints.

TING!

My earlier comment might not have been so angry had I not been reading about Parliament voting to reduce protections for child refugees that will mean children will be kept separate from their families, so, yeah, plus ca change.

I suspect all the Tory MPs who swept into historically labour seats in the north at the last election off the back of 'only we can get brexit done' promises are already prepared to lose them in the next general election.
