Well Mal we all like a little nightcap dont we?🤣
Funny how times change though, maybe Iím showing my age now but do you remember when you were out drinking years ago and people would say Ďletís have one for the road!í
The trouble with the 2200 rule is that people will just chuck it down their necks before ten, in Sydney years ago ( probably in the 70ís before I got there) the pubs used to shut at 1800 and the punters would hit the drink hard before closing time, apparently they used to have to hose down the troughs that ran along the foot of the bars in some! Sorry to paint that vivid picture, doubt the House of Commons has that sort of issue!

I'm not surprised either, like you say it goes on by all parties from the top to the bottom and in all countries.
Then depending on their point of view they cherry pick who and what opposes it.
Goes on a lot on here as well with others telling others that they are wrong and stupid, chuck in the odd fancy word to give the impression they know better and then proceed to give them their daily lecture.

Just goes to show really that it pays to not always believe the bull**** reported in the mainstream media, there are some people who are pretty selective in what they do or donít believe, and even if it were true that Boris slipped off to Italy.... so what? We all know that politicians are privileged and get away with stuff us mere mortals arenít allowed to so why should we really be surprised or even shocked? The whole Dominic Ďpoor eyesightí Cummings affair proved that, one rule for them and one rule for us and thatís ALL politicians, Tory, Labour and the whole lot of em
The Banksy House of Commons painting just about sums it all up!

Hiya tinhead

It's going well to be fair. We've a range of new things in place to help with distancing and stuff, no staff rooms, guidance in classrooms, boxes with cleaning kits in, one way systems to reduce head on contact, staggered breaks and lunches to keep Year group bubbles separated....

Rules change overnight and we just get on with it. Last week masks were advised, this week they are mandatory. The kids just get on with it and are mostly good natured and very chilled about it all. We have a laugh and say it's because their teachers are all ugly and they don't complain about an infringement of their civil rights...

There are some who did all the work set online whilst we were off, some who did none at all. Again, we just get on. The philosophy is not one of 'catching up' because all schools have been closed so instead it's an ethos of reminding ourselves what we love about learning and re-learning our ways and means. I'm loving being back even though my subject is one of those most radically changed to meet covid guidance. Given the bigger picture I'm grateful to be in a job that I love and that still exists!

I'm lucky to work under a brilliant head who worked through all his holidays and is in regular communication with staff and parents. Unlike the government who thought it was right to take their six week holiday in the midst of the biggest national crisis since the war.... (don't get me started....)

So. Yeah, it's good to be back. It's not perfect but it's where we should be so long as we keep sensible and safe

Mal how's school going.?
My missus is shocked about the kids handwriting, hardly any of them have picked up a pen in a 6 months and relied on laptops and tablets, standards have really slipped. She's on the case though

Letís just hope in the years to come once all of this is over that Boris doesnít keep crawling out of the woodwork like that nasty lying maggot Blair constantly does..... if there ever was a time when I want to chuck a brick at the telly itís when his orange face comes on with his two penneth worth yet again!
Thatcher was like marmite, some loved her, some hated her but as for Blair, I donít know anyone who has anything good to say about that piece of work!

Apparently they got him mixed up with Tony Blair

Easily done. Both built careers on lying to the British public. ..
