Matt Hancock caused a massive kerfuffle here because he kept accidentally saying Keighley (I live in the Keighley constituency) instead of Kirklees. Cue mass panic on the local FB pages about everything being shut down but not having been told about it. Because that is actually a plausible thing that could happen these days, I fully understand the panic.
Was that an accident? I thought there had been an outbreak in Keighley. :lol: It's a chicken factory in Cleckheaton.
So did the rest of Keighley! And no, he completely misspoke so the council have finally tweeted to confirm that it's nothing to do with us :))

Boris has stolen our childrens fruit and veg!!!! https://www.theguardian.com/education/2 ... sh-schools

I actually rolled eyes to myself when parents brought up the lack of fruit and veg on the class what's app when reception went back to school. It seemed like a small thing to complain about in the scheme of things. But now I know what's happened I'm contacting my MP. For some kids that might be the only fruit or veg they get :cry:

We have to be so careful that things don't slip through the cracks, never to resurface. Yes, planning is difficult and none of us have crystal balls but there can at least be budget set aside and assurances made.

In case you haven't seen it: govt data on cases by local authority is published at pillar 1 level only, with pillar 2 cases not included. This is why their data on Leicester looked...harmless.

Yorkshire and Humberside also has low pillar 1 testing but high pillar 2 testing.

* they're still not officially publishing pillar 2 except for the sight of local health authorities, but councils/mayors/MPs only have access to the pillar 1 data that the general public can see, so no wonder the mayor had no idea what was going on - pillar 1 data looked fine.

I know! I think it was like that originally because almost all cases/tests were pillar 1 so they didn't need to break down pillar 2 really, but it's not been that way for a month or so.

Part of me still hopes for home rule for Manchester. :)) Well, home rule for the apocalypse stricken remnants of the north, maybe.

Soon there’ll just be Leicester left, a post-corona wasteland of people with wild hair.

God, that’s absolutely appalling!

The tri state area are making travellers from California and the South quarantine for 14 days which makes perfect sense. Obviously you’ve got some absolute bellends up in arms about it because why wouldn’t you want people travelling from the new epicentre when they’ve just managed to get things back in control. :ella:

And Charlie from Casualty leading a battered band of post-corona survivors (I still believe Charlie from Casualty will survive EVERYTHING).

He definitely will. It’s the never making eye contact that saves him, I’m sure.

He, Ian Beale and Tony from Hollyoaks will be the only three men standing to repopulate the earth.

And with Audrey from Corrie the only women, she's too elderly to bear children. :(

Maybe Donna from 2 Pints of Lager will make it, she always seemed nails. :)) Though, obviously, I am in favour of wholesale species extinction. Let the beavers rule the earth!!
