    Well, I'm over 50 and have had coronavirus so I'm kinda hoping it's a case of I'm Alright Jack because , despite the fearmingering, there's a good chance that having had it does confer a degree of immunity.

    So bring on the immunity passports - Key West here I come :-)

    Sorry hate to go straight in with such a negative statement but as they say you can't polish a turd, it's dire out there.

    Until offices start to open up it's going to be the same story. The whole thing is a giant cluster fck managed by some inexperienced, etonian, exbankers whose sole purpose is to strip the country bare not serve it.

    Bare Rishi Sunak an average multi millionaire who is an average MP made to look high profile theirs not a lot we can do except keep trying and watch the horror show unfold slowly.
