Just been in the smaller of the two Tesco in Lincoln. Things were pretty much in stock apart from loo roll and pet food. Did see one guy at the till getting told by the checkout girl that he couldn't

I'll eventually work through all the messages but I'm safe. Thanks folks. I'm still an absolute mess but safe all the same.

Not to mention the sheer lack of awareness on his part and that of the gammon that the only reason why this is happening in the first place is because Captain Tom had to do part of BJ's job for him.

I'd have said that the best way to honour Captain Sir Tom would be to appropriately fund and resource the NHS so that some other poor fucking granny doesn't feel like they have to do a marathon to cover for the government's ineptitude in a crisis.

Having said that, a statue is far cheaper and easier.

These people are idiots. Instead of waiting until one person dies for the next one to start walking, if they all just started walking together at the start of the pandemic we’d all be on holiday in Barbados by now.

I wonder how much Ralphy would've earned by now if he'd got sponsorship

The way the government have misjudged just about everything to do with the pandemic, added to their ability to throw money at things that really don’t need and/or shouldn’t have money thrown at it, it wouldn’t surprise me to see a new grant scheme to cover the cost of a Captain Tom statue in every garden in Britain.

I had to admire the guy, he handled what was thrown at him well, but nobody should pretend he set out to do anything other than quietly raise a grand for the NHS. The media decided to make him a figure of hope that they felt we all needed, the fact he was a veteran made is easier to sell that vision.

Also, every story told of the laps he did of his garden, but he just walked up and down. That’s a length, not a lap.
