It’s been reported in today’s national media that people are unable to book appointments online due to computer ‘glitches’.

Didn’t Dido Harding, head of the UK’s Test and Trace programme, leave her post as CEO of TalkTalk because ‘computer glitches’?


Correct Andy and where has she been now all the brown stuff’s hitting the fan?


Apparently someone living in Twickenham went online to book a test and put in a Scottish post code and was offered a test in Twickenham, which begs the question, is this a ‘computer glitch’, or a deliberate means of discouraging people from being able to acquire a test in their locality because the system currently can’t cope with demand.


To be totally honest the way this government has been handling the covid pandemic is one giant sh!t show. (Apologies for the language)


The computer says NO.

Get use it it, there is much more of it winging its way in our NHS

It was Trump who first mentioned that testing too many people was causing the figures to rise (or something similar); surely our government isn’t thinking that too…

According to the W.H.O covid has infected less than 20% of the worlds population
So it still has a long long way to go before we get it anywhere near under control.
Should a vaccine be developed by January or February it will still be the end of 2021 before the average person in the UK could be vaccinated.


Its not surprising given that tourists are flooding into the Island all because of business and profit, it’s pathetic. We are heading towards another national lockdown so will have gained nothing, get real and face reality health and well being is the priority it has to be or we won’t have any economy.

Colin – the figure are rising but because a majority of the population share Trumps mentality

The Baroness was in front of some committee or other at Westminster today,17th,and gave her usual dire performance-I wonder why she’s still in the job. I am reminded of a quote of Mr Ian Smith of Rhodesia- a government so bloated with arrogance that they believe they know the answer to every problem,but if chaos and disaster ensue,they look the other way. He was describing the UK,US,SA… Read more »
