Pulling some numbers out my arse there's about 1million NHS staff directly doing hospitally stuff and I guess the WHO standard PPE costs 200 quid so 200million quid * however many times these things need replacing, for the duration of this crisis maybe 2 billion quid? The point being if they can spend 350billion & counting keeping people receiving a wage then it's not a question of affordability. All financial plans should have gone out the window. Of course every country in the world is also in this boat and that's probably putting strain on supplies but nonetheless to have folk like [mention=74006]Inanimate Carbon Rod[/mention] saying they're *STILL* not being properly equipped after *WEEKS* of this is an absolute scandal.

Its about to start costing them NHS workers lives. :( im fucking terrified for my wife’s safety.

So in short, no I think my generation will be just as much of a bunch of arseholes in the eyes of the young once we're auld. The solution is to just be generally pro-youth and support what they want even if you don't quite get it.

The big difference will be younger people will have never known anything but the big data companies being completely dominant and integrated into every part of your life.

Meanwhile Trump's  bestie and hopefully infector  takes decisive action.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on Thursday exempted churches from coronavirus lockdowns by classifying religious activity as an essential service.

"We're not happy with some health personnel who do not take good care of themselves. They should have set an example for others,"  he said.

He has previous and deleted his Facebook account (as someone else was posting on his page):lol:

In February, he apologised to the public for saying that a group of foreigners should be "kicked out of Thailand" for refusing to wear face masks.

Anyway, here is photo of a Thai nurse. https://www.chiangraitimes.com/thailand-national-news/news-asia-thailand/thai-nurse-forced-to-resign-for-wearing-overly-sexy-uniform/

Did the guy I know use any of his ill gotten gains to not buy a couple of cars on the never never or save it, pay off his mortgage that he can't now afford it. 

Nope. He thought he was Billy big baws and that I was a mug for having a job where I had to pay the correct amount of tax.

Boy on my Facebook posted a video of his street where you could hear everyone clapping and cheering. He was clapping as well but it sounded like he was actually fapping out his window.

How much is needed to ensure the health service  is 'fit for purpose '?

We're spending what 150bn or something annually in the UK. What's enough? 200bn? 300bn? 500 bn?

Even in Scotland the SNP who aren't a proto fascist Brexiteer clown collective like Westminster have tough choices to make on public spending. 

Yes, I totally agree, I think as a nation we need to decide on what's important, if that means raising NI or Tax to properly fund the NHS, then so be it. There also needs to be a serious look at how it's being run, as often there appears to be more highly paid "admin" staff than actual health professionals which quite frankly is ridiculous. There's also too much wrangling and a severe lack of communication between departments which again causes confusion for the patient and additional / wasted tasks being undertaken.

The stock market should be suspended.  Stock prices at the moment are not a reflection of companies’ value but are a reflection of stock manipulation for profiteering.
Mind you since the people doing this are all Torycunts I doubt the government will take action.


Someone’s investments are clearly taking a hit.

That was my first thought when I heard you have to provide tav receipts for 3 years,  not one f them doesn't diddle the figures so they pay little or no tax, then slag of everyone else for being mugs.  get it right fucking up you!

Also well done to the good ole US of A, an absolutely blistering second half has saw them not only soar to the top of the table but open up a healthy lead on china who have simply faded away and risk falling out of the top 4 all together at this rate,  The great team performance instilled into them by the manager has shown great results after a shaky start but many now see them as champions elect with their current form showing no signs of taking a dip.  one hand on the trophy for the Don
