I bet those shaming people are Tory voters as well, in some sick show of irony

I bet a lot of the ones clapping voted Tory as well. Not the best way to show support for the NHS, but at least we're still well on track for that no deal Brexit. 

In a less bitter note we found out today that a few members of my other half's family have got Covid-19. She panicked a bit because she'd seen one of them at the supermarket last week, but didn't stand close enough to have been at risk. We both got the high risk texts yesterday, my Mum's offered to drive over from Blackburn once a week with some shopping for us, and my best mate has said he'll grab us some bits as well if we need anything.

I thought it was great, personally. With how split the country has been over that past few years, it it was brilliant to see everyone united in something, even if it was only for a few minutes.

I was shocked how many on my street did it, but very good to see.

Now if all those who clapped them quite rightly last night stopped voting for a party that has slashed the NHS to shit and went to war with the Junior Doctors, that would be great.

Boris Johnson has it now. How many of the cabinet are now going to start showing symptoms as well?

Had the absurdity to call him what almost everyone else (including his colleagues) calls him.

But he was doing such a good job. My Facebook news feed will be clogged with either "pray for B***s" or "haha, Johnson has the COVID-19." maybe time for a little digital detoxing.

Do you call the leader of the opposition “Jeremy” like his colleagues do?  Quite honestly the reason he can get away with so much shite is because “Boris” is a created character bumbling through life one hilarious farce after another. Alexander Boris de Pfeffil Johnson is a dangerous politician who doesn’t get held to account because he can hide behind the buffoon character called Boris. 
 

Sorry if this seems like a personal attack, it isn’t meant to be. Obviously we all knew who you meant but I believe that’s all part of the problem.

Problem with Boris having it is that the cabinet will have to all go into self isolation now right? That's a lot of key decision makers...

Dominic is the designated survivor so I think he will be the go to guy.

I'm actually really picky with names as everyone has always shortened my wife's name and she hates it. It's a really rude thing to do, so I'm always concious to refer to people using the name they're most happy using themselves and/or the one they've used when I've been introduced to them. I used to work with a man called Peter and everyone called him Pete. When we met, he introduced himself as Peter and so that's what I always called him. On his last day, he made a point of thanking me for calling him by his proper name as everyone else shortened it without his permission and it made him really uncomfortable.

I've never me met Boris Johson, but I just used a name that he is recognised by and the name he appears to be happy to be refered to. If you personally doesn't fit right with you, fair enough, but I'd rather you didn't tell me what I shouldn't refer to him as.
