    I think what galls me even more is that we went from having a meaningful (and rather strong) opposition to having red tories again. I've been left without a party because Labour are just abstinent tory lite once more. I suppose I'll eventually drift back to being a green voter.

    I justify this to myself by thinking that ultimately the problems brought on by climate change will make the noughties financial crash, the pandemic and brexit look like fucking Christmas. So Green really is the right place to be.

    Which helps me sleep at night obviously.

    The EU has now shut travellers from Canada out as our handling of COVID 2nd Wave is not going well, and we are spiking cases hard all over the country.

    Man, I need us not to become the States.

    Our PM and Premiers need to step up and make some harder tougher choices and lay down the law, because we are going to be more lost come November/December if not.

    I'm freaked out.

    What's your rate per 100,000? Perspective may help. I get freaked out now and then but try to look to facts and lived experience. My local rate is 88. My 4 year old is in school every day with a "bubble" of 60 kids. Me and Mr PigDog are WFH but he's going to the office on the train once per week. We're socially distancing, wearing masks and not going out much. We rarely remember to use hand sanitizer. One person I socialise with has a family member who flouts the rules like crazy. We still don't know anyone locally with a confirmed diagnosis.

    My sister is being not very careful and living between Manchester and
    London, both with pretty major outbreaks. She's fine.

    I'm completely onboard with it being real and social distancing being necessary but perspective is good.

    FYI I have the definition of "new, continuous cough" from the Department of Education as I just had a reminder from my kids school. It means "coughing a lot, for more than an hour or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours".Don't ask me to define "coughing a lot" or "coughing episode".

    So, maybe one of you medical types can answer this: when they say persistent coughing, how persistent is it? I only ask as yesterday morning I woke up with a cough. Every now and then I will cough. Today I still have it. It feels like a bit of a chesty cold type cough but I don't have a runny nose or anything.

    A year ago I would have thought nothing of it but now I'm freaking out. I don't appear to have a temperature or loss of taste/smell so I think I'm fine but the paranoia in me is going into overdrive!

    I read a more clear definition somewhere on the NHS website. Can't remember precise details but it was something like noticing yourself coughing a lot at least 3 times in an hour and the type of cough that would stop you sleeping. So sounds like yours isn't persistent. The symptom checker seems so clear and easy until you actually have to check a symptom!

    I can't believe the government are doing region by region deals. It's ridiculous. The 3 tier system was supposed to make it all clearer and then they have an obligation to provide support against the impacts of their restrictions. They think they are some kind of wheeler dealers who look like strong leaders if they can constantly talk about "doing deals". From what I can make out Burnham is taking the higher ground and trying to get a consistent Tier 3 support package voted through parliament. I think it is lose lose for him - acquiesce to these fools and be tarred with the same brush or "let your constituents down". Depends how much death follows I guess....

    And I'm back as the most recent creeper on your profile page, most excellent. What was I rambling about last night? In my defence I don't really recall leaving the bar and woke up in the cinema room of the hostel

    In the way of scrolling? Like, it takes time for the page to load? Or do you mean it is unsuitable? Or are you simply mesmerized by the cocaine snorting capabilities of Henry the happy hoover?

    How did you know about the Lucas thing? Friends in powerful places. I got three happy birthday messages today from forums I go on, and one email from British Gas asking for money.

    I dunno. I never liked that film. I used to think Hudson Hawk was a great film, even though Andie MacDowall was in it. Now, all I can see is her non-acting face and it ruins the whole thing. She is not convincing as a human.
