Our wonderful media, a few weeks ago it was a disgrace that mask wearing was not mandatory in certain places, now it is, nothing but vox pop pieces about how businesses will be ruined because peopel will not visit in masks. I am on neither side of the argument but please, pick what you believe in and report it and do not just be contrary as that simply plays into the hands of the people with more extreme views who see it as media support for their stance.

And i will add that we had months about how important is was to get kids back to school and today all the questioning has been about why they do not shut the schools early for Xmas. I have no kids, makes no difference to me but still, make your mind up.

Pro snooker players moaning of the right of amateurs to be competing in an event after losing to them.

Maybe consider practicing harder.....🤣
Have watched some of the Snooker over the last few days and just the sight of Murphy as a pundit irks me.

Unbelievably pathetic, one eyed view of the situation. Bit rich of him to talk about players under pressure earning a living when he's pocketed over 4 million quid in his career without taking into account sponsorships. Not exactly a struggling pro is he?

Anyhow, amateurs may have the advantage of playing without pressure but pros have the advantage of being able to practice all day rather than holding down a job. Swings and roundabouts.

My annoyance with schools at the moment is the fact that the Unions are moaning that the Government aren’t making masks compulsory in schools- surely head teachers can decide to make the kids wear masks without the government ruling. These will be the same people who moan about being told what to do in a nanny state

The so called logic of we dont know if the vaccine/boosters work against the new variant so were accelerating the booster program because were worried about the new variant
Yup…me and my Mrs struggled with that logic, and that it seems that the existing vaccine/booster is the lifebelt to the torpedo heading the way of HMS UK that is the Omicron variant.

Get the irritation about the logic, and accept that it's your irritation, but if it does work great; if it doesn't we're better protected against the other variants so it's not like we lose by it. And if we are better protected will it not slow the spread & reduce the chance of further mutations?

But yes, the lack of logic on more than one occasion has been irritating.

As is moving the goalposts contradictory to what they said previously, and others are doing and saying now, like I dont know, say the US and Dr Fauci

Just little old mes irritations though

No you're not the only one irritated by it; I'm just trying to see a positive in it rather than letting it drag me further down.
