I'm a big Pie fan. Some pieces are so brilliant that unfortunately others pale in comparison

He's one of the few floating around who attacks both left and right effectively imo. Would love to know about any others.

Not sure he’s to everyone’s taste but I enjoy his rants.

Yeah, he's very good.

If we ever get through all this and back to some normality. I'd like to see him live somewhere.

I saw him live a few years ago and it was fairly disappointing. The lesson I took is never meet your heroes!

Cabinet Office drawn up horror show warning on what the country could face this winter. And it’s been leaked to the sun

As Brexit talks slip into acrimony, and covid second wave fears rise.. here is what is on the warning dashboard

Devil you do, devil you don’t.

I would expect any government to have some plan on worst case scenario. There are no big surprises in this for anyone with a bit of sense but it's still used in an attempt to have a go at the government.

I’m actually more worried that if it is the actual government document, who leaked it and are these pricks at the scum paying individuals to leak this info.

In fairness it's the government's actions (covid withstanding) that have led to having to prepare for these worst case scenarios in the first place.

we are well and truly screwed aren't we?

clueless prime minister, especially in these circumstances
Pandemic
rising consipracy theory culture on SM that means a sizeable minority won't listen to authority figures anyway
Recession and rising unemployment when furlough ends
about to break international law on withdrawal agreement
odds on no deal during that pandemic
severe risk of sectarian problems in NI to follow

shame the thread is quiet. perhaps its just too grim

The Government urgently needs to find a better way of communicating changes to COVID-19 rules.

We need to return to a daily briefing - but one led by experts, medics & scientists.

All rule changes should be announced there and explained with reference to the evidence.

Not sure I'd be holding a daily briefing. I don't think enough changes day to day and they'd quickly become repetitive leading to when there's a bigger announcement people not watching it.

Once a week might be a nice sweet spot.

And yes to all the things above. Be interesting to see how the Tories react to a lot of what is going on. Labour are almost level in most polls these days. In the same way as people saw Labour as being hijacked from the left by the Corbyn lot it seems to me the same thing has happened to the Tories.

We agree on something, the Tories definitely been hijacked by the authoritarian left.
