Quoted from LH


They did just before kick off. “United! United! United” played through the speakers.


If I'm not mistaken that was because they'd played the old Sham 69 song and at the end of it is a chorus of "United"

I thought it was quite a clever way of them trying to create a bit of an atmosphere

Playing the White Stripes tune backfired on them though as we quickly adapted it in to our own chant of "We're the Black & White Army"

I was in Aldi today and they announced that due to the chaos and the panic buying they were taking drastic action.  They were opening another till. 😉


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

Isn't there one already? VAT?

Yes there is Rob and it's rated at 20%! This can't be reduced or removed until we  officially leave the EU, just like the VAT on tampons. The EU regard both of these as "luxury items".

They could reduce it by 5% if they wanted to. They managed to increase it from 17.5% in 2011...

But they would be still need EU permission to do that. As far as I understand it the EU will allow you to increase VAT as you wish but strangely not reduce it!

We managed to reduce it to 15% for 13 months from 1 Dec 2008. Farage had never felt so sovereign. Although admittedly, I don't think the EU allows member states to reduce the standard rate of VAT below 15%.

Cobra meeting:

-Still 4 weeks off what Italy were, obviously following their rate of spread

- If you have mild symptoms don't leave your house for 7 days, at all costs

- Unfortunately people are going to die before their time

- All about flattening the peak of the crisis - delay

- No evidence to suggest sporting events/mass crowds increase virus spread majorly but they could be stopped if strain on NHS and resources such as ambulances needed for events are needed for corona

- Not closing schools at it would mean children would have to stay with granny who'll be at a high risk age

- Wash your hands and carry on
