He has raised, and is still raising, £27,000,000 so i dont know where the figures come from. When I gave the site wasn't taking any % of donation but asked for a donation that was non opt outable so gave the minimum £2.50.

Hopefully not true but once a director, treasurer and accountants get involved that will seem like peanuts to what they will syphon off for wages and offices!

So, Captain Tom and his epic walk for charity to fund the NHS bless him was absolutely epic

Over 750,000 kind people donated and eventually raised over 15 million

Iíve just seen this online:

The small print, for every donation the charity organisers take 1.98% off the fee plus 20p per each donation. In total they claim the charity organisers, Maytrix, has made around £600,000 off his efforts and the kind donations from everybody who contributed by the sounds of it!!!

Hereís the best bit. Maytrix apparently was set up by his daughter and son in law. If this is correct I find this absolutely shameful, I hope they are going to see the embarrassment in this and repay all the money to the NHS fund or the kind people who made the donations ffs

I do hope this is not true

The Govt have picked the bits science
That they either wanted or had to due to the state
We were in. I don't blame them. But the fact that
We were so out of step with most other countries
Despite being a few stops further down the Covid express
Proves that really.

They are literally doing their best.
We spent a decade flowing America into an Idiocracy
****show of Gameshow leaders and divisive dog whistle
Politics. On Both sides.

We get the Govt we deserve.

yes those briefings are becoming pretty pointless, especially with the pre approved questions and scripted answers

I'll send them a lentil bake and some crystals. See if that helps...

To be honest they can't win. If they focus too much on positives they get accused of making light of the situation. ... Or a conspiracy to hide the truth... or both...

I do wish they'd all stop asking the same questions though. First bbc, then itv, then sky... all asking the same thing and getting the same non committal response

If anybody wants answers on under-funding of the NHS PM me your questions and I'll ask Tat. She worked for the NHS for 31 years and can tell you loads...

Nope! Just landed at RAF Akrotiri. Bringing stranded Brits home, maybe.



See, there are other ways of wasting time while locked down...

Exactly, the UK death totals per day peaked on April 10th at 980 and yesterday's figure was 449, in my book that's a decrease of over 50% but no, keep up the doom and gloom

Good supply of masks , and hand sanitizes positioned anywhere and everywhere where people gather , tubes, railways , football grounds airports buses ! or if someone could produce thin gloves with an anti bacterial coating that does not rub off quickly !
It's all just common sense ! sadly lacking where it is needed !

I took that Newsnight report as glimmer of hope unlike the news currently on BBC1 as I type.
Seems their reporters have run out of things to report so go out of their way to find extra doom and gloom.
Mal can't you go and sort them out with a little positivity?
