    I'm in a similar position though hoping I've got a good few years to go, there's no cure. Been told that my next chemo will be discussed with my Oncologist to decide the balance of benefit versus the risk of catching the virus by turning up for my treatment, but basically it's up to me. It's not about resources. Unless it's Armadeddon out there I'm going to finish my chemo and hit my bucket list, feeling perfectly fit so I want to get the treatment out of the way ASAP.

    This is one of the most terminally stupid posts I've ever read on here. I have no real issue with two folk sitting in the car together to go to their nearest shop as long as only one is going in for the shopping. It's not what I'd do, but I can understand the logic. I don't have an issue with two people going out a walk together - in fact we have done this a couple of times - it's probably good for you in terms of keeping things as "normal" as possible, although my wife has been getting annoyed about just how much of a wide berth I have given people. However, choosing, in spite of all the evidence, to actually go in to the shops together is the height of selfishness. You are immediately making it harder for everyone else in that shop to keep their distance, and if you're the type of people that do that you're probably also the type who walk two abreast down the aisles or stand about with your trolley blocking the aisle having a discussion without even thinking about other customers. Everyone there will think you are a pair of complete arseholes. When you're standing pondering your fucking cupcakes and blocking up the aisle, you are giving a fellow customer a moral quandary about whether to stand and wait for you or squeeze past and risk catching the disease off two people who are much more likely than average to have it because they're acting like fucking selfish imbeciles all the time. Even a couple of weeks ago before these new regulations properly ramped up, when my wife and I went out an (essential) walk to drop food off for a vulnerable person and popped into the supermarkets on the way, one of us stood out in the car park and the other one went in. Somehow we managed to still get enough food to last us a week without facing any of those existential dilemmas you have posed about fucking red wine. I might have let it slide if you hadn't then twice lowered the tone of the debate even further by comparing people who disagreed with you to Nazis. That singles you out as not just a wee bit selfish, but instead as a horrible fucking arsehole (or as you'd probably type it a "horrible fcuknig aresohle").

    Cheers guys. I'm not looking for any sympathy or such it's just so fucked up. It's also what I was expecting to hear. He was on chemo to stretch out his life a bit. He met his first granddaughter two weeks ago. It's just a shame he can't spend time with her now so hopefully we all see this out and get a bit more out of it.

    Just so we've got this right. From the very start of the pyramid discussions the SJFA were in the driving seat if they wanted to be. They could have basically shifted their entire league system over. They might have had to make a joint East/West Super Duper League at the top. They might have had to get a few Tayside clubs to move North. They'd have had to find a place in their own system for the SoS, NCL and EoS leagues or amalgamate them in but, by and large, a few (minor) concessions here and there and they would have had the run of all the non-league. They didn't bother and spent a decade ripping the pish out of the leagues that were set up. The EoS league? Gave up all their best teams. For a while it was nothing but a glorified amateur league dangerously close to single figures. Same for the SoS. They did make sacrifices to get it up and running. The EoS (a member ran league) were also happy to not only allow junior clubs to come in en masse, making their own chances of progression slimmer, they went out of their way to let them come in as complete equals. They could have created an EoS First Division and let the better teams bottleneck and take advantage and never. The SoS, too, has been happy to let clubs come in and make the possibility for progression of their better teams drop. They're supporting a WoS league despite the fact it will see them lose clubs and, let's be honest, increases the chances of them dropping a tier in the future. Now the EoS and SoS are helping set up a WoS league. They're, again, diluting their members own chances of progression. They're diluting their chances of Scottish Cup runs and prize money. They're bending over backwards to get something in place for teams from the West Coast to have the same opportunities they've been granted and fought for. Of course it's not entirely altruistic and I'm sure Tynecastle and Tweedmouth are enjoying bigger crowds and all the other benefits a greater pool of opposition has created but they've been able to bend and negotiate and make sacrifices and make efforts to improve the game at their level and collectively improve all clubs in their league, even the new Junior refugees, ahead of only caring about themselves. And now, at the very last minute, some Junior blazers SUDDENLY decide it's time to act, when they've lost all their bargaining power they once had, and are being told that they can't just make demands and expect everyone to acquiesce they're claiming it's bullying? It's like a bunch of weans deciding to have a game of fitba and one wean wanting to play rugby. That wean spends all their time slagging off everyone else for playing fitba before realising he's got no-one else to play with and demanding to join the fitba game but only on the condition he's still allowed to pick up the ball and run with it.

    Thanks for your concern TRS, feeling a lot better today, was pretty bad for a few days there but I'm alive so that's a plus, at least for me I suppose. Anyway, if you're still on lockdown with your new burd should you not still be on your 3rd time round the kama sutra?

    Absolute bullshit. I'm working in a Covid assessment hub and we arent testing patients who are actually fairly ill. The blue blooded gimp is barely symptomatic yet gets tested, why? Can he not isolate in his 100 room stately home. Absolutely genuinely fucking furious about this. Elitist piss and absolute lies about clinical need. c***s.

    Frankly I think it’s a disgrace that there isn’t official recognition on this forum of the deep, fraternal bond that exists between St Mirren and Hibernian Football Clubs. It’s time for Paisley and Leith to become sister cities, and for us to adopt each other’s club anthems. Love Street 86, Hampden 87, Fir Park 10, Hampden 13 and now tonight in Paisley 20. St Mirren, there’s no other way to put it, you have given me some of the best footballing days of my lifetime.

    This is when the Unions such as USDAW, & the GMB should be making demands regarding basic pay and terms and conditions for their minimum wage and zero hours workers, many of whom will be expected to keep the country operating at great personal risk and also that of their families. They'll also be subject to abuse, both verbal and possibly even physical. For decades they've been screwed over, but things have suddenly changed and the "lowly" supermarket check out girl or the "expendable" delivery driver or the "invisible" shelf stacker and warehouse worker are now the people that society in general are relying on to keep them alive. Is that worth more than £8.21 per hour do you think ??? I'd say so.

    Good evening ladies and gentlemen, a brief update on the life of RN Completed rehab as previously mentioned and now in a sober living house run by an organization called Hope For Tomorrow. It’s quite rigid in some ways but that structure is definitely a benefit to me at this point. I have found a full time job which I should be starting next week, not my ideal but it’s something I can do with little stress. Been doing the full AA thing, complete with sponsor and finished step 5 last week. So far I’ve not had any real craving, possibly due to the vivitrol shot, and my mood has been mostly positive. Managing more sleep at night thanks to 200mg of seroquil up to 5 hours on a good night. Depression is kinda there at times but I’m doing a good job of not letting it get to me. For example, after my last relapse my oldest stepdaughter is not taking to me. Normally I would be really upset and trying to talk to her any way I could. This time, I’m accepting it’s her right to be mad at me and ignoring me, I’ve made a couple of attempts to reach out which didn’t work so I’m leaving well alone. Time will tell. I’m still getting amazing support from stepdaughter no2 and no3 is being positive, so it’s not all bad. I’m just letting you good people of P&B know that the f**k up wasn’t the end of the world and I’ll be here to post for a good while yet. Thank you for all the support [emoji106]

    Well I had a bit of a minter on here last night.... @Futureboy @MONKMAN @Bairnardo @Fullerene you guys are completely correct, comparing offshore workers to NHS staff was a terrible comparison and I have no idea where I was going with the Piper thing. @The OP @woolf @pandarilla I am sorry for any offence caused it was never my intention. I do not think I am generally a roaster, I am putting last night down to tiredness and stress. I hope you and yours all stay safe.

    Each to their own but have you ever needed the nhs - like really needed them? I've (unfortunately) got frequent flyer miles at ninewells and every now and then i realise how ridiculously lucky i am. My care has been in their hands so many times, on a few occasions the type of care that keeps me alive. But i remember having the same feeling when my daughter was born in an emergency section through the night. At one point i just looked around at all the staff and all the equipment and it just made me feel small. Yes they're doing their jobs. But they're part of something (a state run healthcare system) that i think is truly extraordinary. If i lived in the United States i could not continue to have the career and life i have. Simple as that. The national health service is something that most people in this country deeply appreciate, and rightly so. But it's made up of hundreds of thousands of individuals going about their job day in day out. Fucking right i took a wee minute to applaud.

    Boris Johnson said in his ‘Ministerial Address’ announcing our lockdown, viewed live by 27m people, that ‘parks remain open for exercise’. And you have people on here slating the public for going to the park. This is what we’re meant to do. Have a pop at Londoners in their small one-bed flat for going a walk round the park, rather than focussing on the government’s dreadful strategy. We are three months into this and we have a load of clinical staff without PPE, NHS England has tested barely 3000 frontline staff for the virus with tens of thousands isolating and we’re now into dozens of clinical deaths, we’re on a steeper curve for deaths than Italy and Spain with a significant head start when the virus landed in Europe, existing UK ventilator manufacturers punt them out to the rest of the world while we sit waiting on the PMs pals to come up with them, testing is essentially stagnant with a ridiculous target that’ll never be hit released to appease the media, the much trailed antibody test is still nowhere near ready and there’s different advice and answers on an almost daily basis from the Carabao Cup reserves that are punted out to do the daily updates while the PM hides, virus or no virus if he’s well enough to allegedly chair meetings he could manage some updates or at least allow his chancellor/Home Sec/Foreign Sec out on a regular basis - too scared that the big hitters (such as they are with this government) might fill the void of leadership that he sends no marks that 99% of people would walk past in the street and the reviled Gove out to do it instead. People are idiots. Obviously. That’s not up for debate and it never will be. There are of course a few cases of morons sitting about in public for a barbecue or a few cans. It’s stupid and they shouldn’t be doing it. But the vast majority are doing what they’re asked to within the guidelines. I’d far sooner chase the government for their failings than Archie from Govan for getting out his flat and sitting on his arse for ten minutes in the park.

    One really shouldn't accept everything set out in newspapers (incl the online versions) as read, never mind drawing conclusions based on that. The conversation with the journalist lasted 50 mins. It is his choice what he includes, what he leaves out and the context, order and emphasis used. For the avoidance of any doubt whatsoever, Wishaw Juniors will be submitting an application for membership of the West of Scotland League as proposed by The Lowland League.. Membership of the S.J.F.A. & W. of S. J.F.A. and previous Junior F.A. 's such as the old Scottish, Lanarkshire and Central Leagues has, down the years, provided stable environments for clubs like ourselves to operate and serve our communities, particularly in recent years throughout periods of significant social and economic change. We look forward to the West of Scotland League serving that same function and to meeting old friends, making new ones and to facing new challenges.

    I wonder what clubs would die if Coronavirus takes hold meaning no ticket revenue? Rangers a certainty, possibly Hearts and the Dundee sides as well? Falkirk would still bring 2000 fans wherever they go, behind closed doors or not.

    So you have counted the numbers twice to suit your own agenda? My son suffers from really bad Asthma, often needing put on a nebulizer, if he gets it, I would really worry for him. He like the rest of us will also die eventually, but I would like that to be from old age not because some fucking p***k like you couldn't handle not going to the pub for a couple of months. My son is in the same boat as thousands more. So go f**k yourself you utter melt.

    I must confess to having a wee chuckle at folk I've regularly seen on Facebook berating benefits and "scroungers" over the years, now absolutely shiting themselves over money. My favourite post so far is from an AirBnBer who is sitting on a now unused asset worth a fucking fortune demanding to know why "that Nicola Sturgeon" isn't helping her. She then devolved into a rant about not being entitled to universal credit when "all these scroungers get everything", got absolutely dragged and deleted her post in a total strop. Fantastic stuff.

    Correct the halfwits that believe everything on social media and want tested for that Corona hing. My practice was overran by morons who were asymptomatic demanding a test for it. Incidentally despite being in the good old Covid assessment centre we're still not testing for it. Special mention to the smelly c**t who came to the practice today on his bike screaming to be tested for it as he has that CPOD. Not a bad effort to be able to cycle, shout and rant like a fanny despite being breathless. Bolt ya steamer and its COPD ya flange. Another wee mention to the fannies walking around Tesco looking like they've just went into a nuclear reactor in Chernobyl. Interesting attire. I saw one local cretin claim on social media that she was visibly shaking coming out the shop as there was people near her. Just f**k off. Anyway I'm away for my tea.
