are there any voices suggesting that, starting from where we are,
there
is
any workable alternative to three more weeks (with slight tinkering
perhaps)?

Of course there is -

then you'll have a cite for that

wont you

Do you

need a

citation if someone

tells you how to put

on you

underpants?

so you don't have ne then


Why would I need a citation to be able to say the government could stop
this
lockdown tommorow? Do you think they don't have that power?


the question, from three replies ago was:

where is the mainstream opinion that that is the right thing for HMG to do

Given up arguing with an idiot now


Is the opinion of an entire country in the form of sweden not enough for you?
Why not try learning to read you pillock.

Wasn't Boltar the selfish, arrogant, know-everything,
sell-your-colleagues-down-the-river villain from Battlestar Galactica?


Indeed he was

I’m surprised with a good part of the country getting all nostalgic for an
event that for most was really their parents and grandparents party that
the posters from that era bearing that question haven’t been reprinted
with figure of a solder replaced by a nurse.

Yes, a very good idea.

There can't be many people left who have personal memories of VE-Day. After
the care homes crisis, their number has probably halved in the last couple
of months. Not a great way of celebrating them.




Your normal ********

In the UK there are 3.2 million people aged over 80 and 1.6 million aged
over 85

But then what would I expect from you


As I've already said, I was thinking of people who were old enough to know
what VE Day was about. That doesn't include children.


Very late catching up on this, I know. But why doesn't it include
children? I was just under 7 on VE Day, but knew very well what it
meant, including the fact that my dad was coming home after 5 years. I
did wonder at the time whatever they would talk about on the news if
there was no war.
