If there's not at least one complaint from some nutter about it being a foreign cheese I'll be disappointed.

My neighbour has been having BBQ's and loud late night drinking sessions with loads of his mates the last few days in his back garden. He also filled up a huge inflatable swimming pool yesterday despite there being a hose pipe ban here now cos it hasn't rained in ages. I've never been so tempted to report someone to the cops/council for breaching the regulations, but I know it's not worth the hassle in the long run. Hopefully he'll just fall in the pool when he's pissed and drown one night.

Despite being an absolute wuss with such things, I finally snapped at the house at the back of ours who have been ignoring the lockdown for 11 weeks now, having loads of people round, late-night BBQs, fires, the lot.

I was surprised how satisfying, and effective, a loud, deep bellow of  “Shut the fuccccccck up!!!” was. Haven’t heard them since. It’s also done wonders for my wellbeing.

Metro are reporting that there were 445 deaths, but nothing has been reported by the government. Its like they've actually run out of fucks to give. Wait until they stop doing the daily brief and watch us all die.

We are being ushered back into the office despite being able to work from home. It's generally been met with confusion.

Just announced they are dropping the weekend one due to poor ratings as if it’s some shitty sitcom. Which, in someways is apt

I've been crying out for the need to recast for about a decade now.

I would take a look into this with your colleagues, especially given the only clear bit of Government advice was you shouldn't be going into work if you don't need to. Workplaces will try to force you but that does not mean you have to go. Look into their health and safety measures as well. If you have a union or anything at your work  / adjacent to your work, contact them.

Most importantly is that you and your colleagues unite on this. I would request a team meeting and raise your concerns. Its up to them to make sure you are safe.

Fill the void with a 2020 Series of spitting image, it used to scare the crap out of me as a kid!

We made our feelings clear in a team meeting this morning but I doubt it makes much difference. They do what they like until they get caught out as a general rule.

I'll continue to challenge it and encourage others to.

Yes keep on this. Also look into your contracts with what it says on safety measures/rights and also the Health and Safety law.

Britbox commissioned two series of it earlier this year.

Our contracts are near pointless. When I was working overseas I pointed out that the contract made it impossible for them to release me for my performance or lack thereof and they said they knew and it's a problem in all the contracts they write. 

My current contract spends more time saying I'm allowed to open the company post than anything else, and I don't get anywhere near any post.

If you feel your workplace is unsafe, follow the correct path when it comes to raising it. You are protected by law if your concerns are legitimate but don’t give them any reason to get out on a technicality. This might help.
