Re: Easyjet

I also think that Virgin has a nerve asking the UK Government for a bailout due to coronavirus, yet as I recall, they vehemently objected to any government support at all for FlyBe which went bust at the start of the crisis. Delta Airlines (USA) own 49% of Virgin and it is bare faced cheek to ask U...

Re: Coronavirus

I think it is population and density of houses mainly. There are no cases in most West Sussex Villages but Brighton has many. Similar Marbella and Benalmadena have quite a lot of cases. Has been plenty of photos on Spanish social media of people breaking the restrictions. France is quite strict as t...

Re: Daily Express

Hopefully The Mail, Express and The Sun have all disappeared permanently! they do nothing but spread lies and stoke up hatred and anger. Not much chance of that. Sun followed by the Mail are the top selling newspapers. Sun sells about 1,2 million copies compared to Guardian’s 162,000 ( most which a...

Re: Coronavirus

I cut OHs hair today, ordinary scissors. Was coerced into it as fed up of hearing him moaning. Didn't take me long and he is very pleased with it. Maybe I should set up as a mobile hairdresser.

Re: Coronavirus

I wear my mask even though it irritates me. Feels very hot and the metal piece that fits on the bridge of the nose makes me want to scratch my nose. Heard the virus can get in through your eyes too. OH won't wear one.

Re: Coronavirus

Don't see how the Government can enforce the wearing of masks due to the fact they have just spent 31 million euro on substandard ones. Unless they distribute them amongst the public. Murcia seems to be the province with the lowest number of cases. Funny how La Mancha has a high number. Always seem ...

Re: Coronavirus

It is going to be a bit quiet on here without the usual Daily fail what about the UK then posts. How dare people mention deaths in Spain. Shame that after a really good start this informative thread got ruined by the usual posters. There are only a few members post on this thread but many read it to...

Re: Coronavirus

Yes Pamela. Read an article about worries people may be put off attending GPs because of the crisis. Time they examined their priorities, perhaps some figures on heart and cancer deaths too, how do they compare? A friend has some sort of injection periodically for cancer, his last one was cancelled ...

Re: Coronavirus

Whether it is right or wrong, expecting people to stay in their homes for months on end is a big ask. Perhaps they are all 100% convinced by the stay home, save lives. ---------------------- Fear and guilt. Protect the N.H.S etc. Etc mantra. Not that whats killing nhs staff is a shambolic lack of P...

Two years ago the US state department raised concerns about a Wuhan laboratory carrying out experiments with bats.
