The BBC is an arm of the state. The right wing media are propaganda sheets for shady 'think tanks' that represent the ultra-rich 1% who don't think they should contribute to society. Look at how easily they got the nation demonising professional footballers for not taking a pay cut. Hedge fund managers, media billionaires, tax-dodging business moguls - not a mention.

The people who are keeping their sorry carcasses alive and delivering their food now are those they wanted to ban from the country a few months ago.

If you were on the stage you’d love to tell them to f**king wind their necks in and get a real grasp of what’s happening!!

Your moronic questions on this are beyond the pale!

Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Rather the irony there.

what I found utterly astounding at the No10 daily press briefing on the day they'd just announced over 950 deaths in a single day, more than China, Italy or Spain ever reported the press were asking when the "lock down" would end.

The UK press are embarrassingly poor.

Channel 4 is about the only exception - even then - they sometimes get tunnel-vision on searching for scandal rather than the pertinent information.

ITV are more interested in talking about the queen than actual news and BBC might as well be back in WW2 with a military censorship given how much they slant presentation of information.

I'd say there's a certain disgust from the ruling elite that oafs that kick a ball are earning these worldy sums and the umbrage that come with it

the more you look at journalism the more you realise it is *mainly* not a good career. There are so few who are more than puppets for some vile agenda. Kussenburg(spelling) on the BBC is horrendous and then you would have to ask how anyone with an ounce of human decency could write for the daily mail or the sun.

Missing my point. And making it, in a way.

It's that in one way, but more that the footballers provide a convenient 'look over there' opportunity to distract people from contemplating powerful people and corporations that are thousands of times wealthier.

Fox News are back to beating this drum again, after taking a break for a week when Trump listened to Fauci and Birx and extended the shutdown recommendations.

Expect Trump to start feeling the pressure from Hannity and Tucker.

Another 950 odd dead in UK hospitals in the last 24hrs but all is ok as Boris has moved into a regular ward and waved at the nurses he pays a pittance to.

He's a fighter is our Boris.


Never fought a thing in his entitled life...

Restrictions in the ROI extended for another three weeks until 5 May.

Not surprising its 3 weeks. 2 weeks would end it just before the May bank holiday.

Not sure the public will hack another extension after that so they better have some plan in place to ease restrictions but that probably means much more efficient testing (especially in getting results quicker) and contact tracing.

Well "the public" better get their heads around dealing with it.

We are nowhere near through this.
