The government should be doing a full on public health campaign across all media encouraging people to have the vaccine.

They genuinely believe that couples having different surnames will cause the collapse of society? They are not fit for office. My husband and I have different names, so I assume we are on a list of undesirables somewhere.

The test can be done on urine and other bodily fluids, so it is possible they tested him in the ambulance. Why they would decide to test for it is another question, unless someone told them he had taken it, or they found it near him, how would they now it wasn’t an aneurism or something,

Posted in: What are some past TV shows that could no longer be aired because they would be considered politically incorrect? See in context

Clips of Top of The Pops, especially from the 70s.

Nope, Friday night is music night on BBC4, complete with TOTP repeats. The only ones they don’t show are the obvious ones with Savile and Dave Lee Travis and episodes with the late, and not a nonce, Mike Smith who had not given permission for them to be repeated before his untimely death.

What was "wrong" with the IT Crowd?

Some complained it was transphobic. Similar complaints recently against Futurama.

Posted in: UK to push at G-7 for global standard on 'vaccine passports' See in context

I have an issue with these passports as they discriminate against those who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons, or those who do not have the right technology.

Posted in: UK royals in TV head-to-head with Prince Harry and Meghan See in context

Harry’s uncle Andrew is still a royal, has very shady friends and serious allegations against him but gets far less media attention or hate than Harry and Meghan, who chose to walk away from the firm and get on with their lives. Leave them alone. Harry has always hated the press and media attention long before he met his Meghan.

@Mr Kipling. In the UK On the Buses is still repeated, albeit with a little editing. Ditto Steptoe and Son, Dad’s Army, Man About the House, George and Mildred, Bless This House etc. Sooty is still on. I still enjoy watching most of these programmes. Shows like Little Britain and the IT Crowd have either been removed from streaming services or had episodes removed, even though they are quite recent compared to the other programmes I’ve mentioned. There is a whole channel devoted to old British films and programmes called Talking Pictures TV who have to put a disclaimer before almost everything they broadcast.

Posted in: Ministry of Justice offering free counseling services to foreigners See in context

I was refused service by a hairdresser just before Christmas. They said they didn’t know how to cut my type of hair, which may be true, but considering their website boasts one of it’s stylists trained in Paris I found it a bit hard to believe. To be honest, I think it’s because I was too old for their salon, no one over thirty there, but I do not wish to have a granny cut in some salon that has never cut my type of hair but will have a go anyway. Too many disastrous cuts here in the past, usually I only get it cut at home, but that hasn’t been an option for over year now.

The victim should go to the police. These crimes need to be recorded and investigated. Do they think this will be a one off.

Get one now while you can. In the future, when travel is resuming, the rush to get a passport will cause a backlog. Don’t wait until you need one.

Posted in: There will be demand for travel during the spring school holidays in March, so we should think of doing a Go To campaign to properly support the tourism industry then. See in context

What an idiotic thing to say. Watch cases spike again as vaccinations won’t be complete until next year. Countries speeding ahead with vaccinations are looking to form some kind of mutual travel agreements to help kick start sluggish economies. Japan won’t be part of this and will again miss out on the international tourism cash cow for another year, let alone business investment.

The misogyny is strong in this one. Also shows that criminal record checks and a sex offenders register is essential to help prevent offenders getting near children and vulnerable adults. Most nonces choose to be in areas or jobs where they have better access to the vulnerable.

Posted in: Japan to receive 2nd shipment of Pfizer vaccine on Sunday See in context

Japan could be receiving salt water for all I care. This is the most useless vaccine ever, usually when you get a normal vaccine, not an experimental like this one, you get it and you forget about the illness it protects you from. 

A lie, and you know it. Why spread lies, what is in it for you?
