  1. Is this what is going to be the New Normal? Gives a new meaning to Neighborhood Watch. I think we are going to see a lot more people questioning the rationale of what is being done by a government not using it's brain and following orders. Well worth reading the comments below:
  2. Nice work if you know the right people: Boris Johnson REFUSES to apologise for £18 billion 'cash for cronies' scandal and says No10 moved 'heaven and earth' to snap up PPE - as fury mounts over government's 'jobs for pals' * National Audit Office said officials signed contracts for thousands of face masks that were actually useless * NAO looked at 8,600 contracts awarded by Government from January to July amid claims some were flawed * Boris Johnson told virtual PMQs: 'We shifted heaven and earth to get £32 billion items of PPE into this country' * Alok Sharma refuses
  3. Where does the madness stop: More than a few people are struggling with the name for Eli Lilly's antibody therapy bamlanivimab, which won an emergency OK on Tuesday in non-hospitalized COVID patients at high risk of severe disease. The tongue-twisting drug name even received some gentle ribbing on Fallon Tonight: https://www.instagram.com/tv/CHb_5oEAr62/ All the news on the gravy train. https://www.fiercepharma.com/pharma/covid-19-tracker-johnson-johnson-aims-to-test-shot-kids-president-trump-talks-firing-fauci
  4. Here in Newton Farm, although I didn’t witness it, just been told of a bizarre incident this afternoon where one member of a gang of youths walking down the street was stark naked except for a mask. He then went into the local corner shop and wasn’t confronted, maybe because he had a mask on. The police were called and are now looking for him. I think lock down has got to him. Anyone else see him?
  5. Academy of Ideas – Free minds for a Free Society It is often said that one cannot solve a problem if one is not even cognizant of it, and herein lies one of the reasons freedom is retreating so rapidly from our world. Many people still believe themselves to be free and as Goethe wrote: “None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.” Those who believe themselves to be free disregard the fact that to be governed in the modern world is to be . . . “…watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preac
  6. Anyone know who to contact on the telephone in Hereford Community Clean-Up Group as I don't do Facebook.
  7. A Mitchell & Webb comedy sketch to cheer you up as we go into further lockdown. https://youtu.be/UxiBywqsFcI?t=250
  8. Notice a huge drop in people posting with their comments on Hereford Voice - any reason - are we all fed up? What are you doing to get you through these current times. Due to sleepless nights listen to some interesting programs on BBC 5 Live (broadcasts on Hereford & Worcester local radio) between 1am to 6pm where I find the presenters raise current topics with the public and invite them to phone in with their diverse views - mainly older, mature persons - well worth a listen. Dotun Adebayo with BBC Radio 5 live has a pleasant approach/manner which encourages people to get involv
  9. 90 minutes to debate Coronavirus Act And a lifetime of being consigned to serfdom. David Ellis speaks to Ann Widdecombe, former Brexit Party MEP and former Conservative Shadow Home Secretary, and Rusty Firmin, former 22 SAS; the "man with no gloves" of Iranian Embassy seige-breaking team. They discuss the drive for more military involvement in the civilian response to Coronavirus, defence review and military involvement in building the media narrative. https://youtu.be/NQkCSEjdpoM
  10. Read and Sign the Great Barrington Declaration. There have to be better ways to sort out the mess we are in with this government's handling of our health and economy. As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection. As at 9th October 2020 Signed by Medical & Public Health Scientists 5,902 Medical Practitioners 12,020 General Public 165,165 Add your name now.
  11. It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the death of Councillor Bernard Hunt, on Tuesday 6 October 2020. There will be a minute’s silence at Full Council on Friday 9 October 2020. Bit of a shock. Had an email from him about a local matter only 10 days ago saying that he would very much like to attend that meeting. Always found him responsive. Condolences to his family over his sudden death.
  12. Revealed: The least and most deprived neighbourhoods in Hereford By Carmelo Garcia, Local Democracy Reporter, Hereford Times - 4th October 2020 HEREFORD has one of the most poverty-stricken areas in the UK, according to council statistics on deprivation. The latest figures show that there are 18,500 people living in deprived households across the county – this is about a tenth of the population. There are 11 places in Herefordshire that are within in the 25% most deprived nationally, which feature in The Indices of Deprivation 2019 report published by Herefordshire Council.
  13. Noticed that two men were cutting back low hanging branches near me. It turns out that these two men are contracted to respond to all tree matters in Herefordshire. So they could be dealing with a tree matter in Hay on Wye and then have to travel across to Ledbury for another. The problem is that those above have no idea how resources and planning need to be deployed to create an environment fit to live in - just look at the state of our estates, roads and cycleways. If you walk around you may notice these things instead of sitting on their sofas at home and hitting their computer keys - that'
  14. Back in 2010 this Simpsons episode makes for interesting viewing in 2020.
  15. Waste still on the verge since July 18th. No one interested in sorting this out or contacting me. All sitting at home with their computers.
