Its an absolute non story that only bell ends like Piers Morgans try and make a drama out of it.  Its perfectly sensible change in terminology. Mike Gatting summed it up sensibly "Itís about time because so many women play the game now. They are not men, so itís straightforward to me.Ē

Love it, love it, love it

Think we will get smashed this year though. Our team looks a bit old an podgy and we have just one player ranked in the top 10. Only hope is the pressure gets to the Americans and we just play with that underdog freedom. Funny looking at the two teams though, all the Americans chewing gum and wearing shades - none of that in the Europe team

From a personal point of view ............

Every one I know who's poorly of late have been double jabbed. Stacks on the sick with one thing or another at work ranging from the shits to Anemia   :unlike:  
Only one's who turn up every day are the like of me who have not had the jabs . Were all fit as a fiddle keeping the cogs turning while the jabbers are shaking like shitting dogs at home .  

Know plenty out side of work in the same boat as well .

Winters coming   klins

Nearly everyone in hospital with the thing have not had the jab. Being jabbed doesn't stop you getting it, it just gives you massive protection against getting really unwell or dying with it. Cant believe I'm still having to say that when the evidence of how well the vaccine works is overwhelming souey

Well I'll give it a go if you like.

Almost all of the 51,000 (?) deaths WITH Covid from Jan to July this year actually occurred in January and February by which point fewer than 600,000 people had been fully vaccinated in England. The stats purporting to show a 2 way comparison drag in data from a period where there was no vaccine. That's a blatant statistician's con trick.

A more sensible analysis (but one which doesn't try to exaggerate the effects of the vaccine) would be to look at deaths since the vaccine rollout reached their stated "key" stage at the end of May.
Since then we've seen deaths "within 28 days of a positive test" totalling 5,500

The actual figure of those dying "with Covid" after both jabs is 640 people.

(Check - https://www.thenationalnews.com/world/uk-news/2021/09/13/official-figures-show-640-fully-vaccinated-covid-deaths-in-england-in-2021/ )

The number of people dying from the jab (or at least those they're admitting to) is 1,632

So that's a total of 2,272 people who have been fully vaccinated dying either, "with" Covid, or of reactions to the vaccine, during a period where a total of 5,500 have died "with Covid"

A little less reassuring for the jabbed.

Where do you get that figure from? I checked the ons and it says...

"You can find the number of deaths involving COVID-19 in table 12 of our Monthly Mortality Analysis, these include figures for deaths involving adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccination. There are currently 0 deaths registered with the aligning ICD codes for this. However, should this change, they will be updated in this table."

The basis of some anti Vaxxer sceptism seems to be that people with vaccines are still getting Covid. That's a bit like saying people who wear seatbelts still get injured in car crashes so I will refuse to wear a seatbelt.

Priti Patel is prone to thoughtless bluster. She wants to be very careful or France might just tell her to police her own border rather than them doing it for us? I'm sure France don't want thousands of immigrants in and around Calais, surely it would be in there interest, and their right, to let them crack on across the channel and become a UK problem.

The real issue is that the UK has such a soft benefits system and lax approach to illegal employment it makes it an attractive destination for illegals.

Our national anthem is shit. Dirge of a tune and it immediately alienates the majority the nation who either don't believe in God or are republicans. We need something much better than if.

Incorrect. It's soul stirring and is instantly recognisable the world over.

Only 27% of the UK believe in God, 40% of the UK do not support having a monarchy. So its a hard song for a lot of people to have any enthusiasm for. Need an anthem more people can buy into.

I would have this tune,  maybe get someone to add some stirring words

With Neil it wasnít right of centre. It was rather wish washy at times. Itís obvious that the owner wants much more bite. As the UK is a conservative country with a small c ,we need a broadcaster to take on the woke BBC and lefty Sky News. I see a great future for GB News as it continues to get its act together, and speaks for the majority of the British people. Iím afraid you are going to be disappointed Senor El Capitan, and you are not getting the answers you were fishing for. Tough.

Lefty sky news!!! Give over, as if Rupert Murdoch would have a lefty news channel. That just shows how far right some have become if they now believe Sky news is lefty  souey

Similarly, Neil is a respected newsman, he hoped GB was going to be better but he has now rumbled it just wants to be a shouty fake news platform for the right, bit like Fox.

I'm a bit disappointed to see him go. I know he hasn't guite delivered but has great energy which is something we lack. Probably not skillful enough for right wing and can't defend well enough for full back, but a decent wing back option.

Also, while I'm talking footy i think Warnock cost us the Van Bergen deal. Petulantly saying his likely signing is nothing to do with him is not going to make the lad feel like he is wanted. Needs to wind his neck in sometimes.

Trump and Pompeo agreed the terms of the withdrawal, they legitimised the taliban by meeting them, pompeo actually praised them as partners.

You seem very bitter against teachers Bill.

The kids all have lots of pieces of evidence to support their grades. Course work, mock exam results etc. The teacher assessment are subject to scrutiny and 3rd party ratification. Its probably a more reflective way to do things rather than exams which are essentially a memory test.

Yes, some kids bomb exams so this will have suited them better but kids have had it tough in covid so if they cop a break with teacher assessments then good luck to them.

48  ComeOnBoro.com / ComeOnBoro.com Message Board / Re: Why is there a shortage of cement on: July 31, 2021, 08:32:17 AM
We don't make much cement anymore so a lot more is imported. A combination of covid affected supply, brexit delays at ports, lack of delivery drivers and demand. Construction jobs are stuttering all over the country because of erratic supply. Similar with quarried materials. The biggest construction company in the north east is currently rationed to 20 ton of pipe bedding a day. Kerbs and pavers you used to get from marshalls in 7 to 10 days are now on 10 to 12 weeks lead in. There is carnage in the construction industry at the moment.

Load of bollocks - of course we make cement

Its increased demand and run down stocks

You are right, i misread the stats on cement and pre cast concrete products. We still do make cement although we do also rely on  more imported cement than we used to. Construction materials situation is unprecedented. Cement and cement based products are a nightmare, timber and steel prices are ridiculously volatile. There are massive lead in times on everything and that is not just run down stocks, domestic customers are not putting in 900mm concrete pipes or box culverts. Even when products are manufactured delivery times are stupid as they are struggling with a lack of HGV drivers.
49  ComeOnBoro.com / ComeOnBoro.com Message Board / Re: Why is there a shortage of cement on: July 30, 2021, 06:25:34 PM
To be honest, some of the cunts I've dealt with have got a nerve to call themselves professionals. The following is a far from  exhaustive list:

The electrician who quoted me £400 to fit a shower, over the phone. When I queried if he should come and look at what the job entailed, he replied, "It's always about £400".

The electrician who on the morning he was due to fit said shower called to add £150 to the bill, because the cable he'd quoted me was too thin and he'd forgotten the regulations had changed.

The kitchen fitter who wouldn't put a quote together until we agreed to give him the work because, "I don't want to waste my time doing you a quote if you decide to go somewhere else".

The roofer who didn't turn up to my mother's due to him still being pissed from the night before.

The plasterer who told me his rates were, "Anywhere between £80 to £140 a day". But he would only be able to tell me after he'd finished.

The plasterer who told me he was actually a qualified electrician, not a time served plasterer.

The worktop cutter who ran out the house, refusing to speak, because it transpired he'd cut the worktop upside down and it didn't fucking fit.

Domestic work has gone mad, with lots of home offices,  garden make overs, bars etc. Tades people can charge what they like, my mate is a painter and he is quoting daft prices to to price himself out of work as he's too busy and people are just saying, "great when can you start "

Getting finishing trades on construcion sites is a mare. Who wants to be grafting on a building site being screamed at and told to put their hats on when you can get 200 quid a day papering a bedroom with the radio on.
