He missed 5 emergency meetings in January, February and March, and wanted to go the opposite way of all the other countries in lockdown and pursue a strategy of 'herd immunity' - the idea that if enough people in the UK get sick with the virus and pass it on, we'll all become immune. This is blatant nonsense as recovering from the virus doesn't make you immune, and would've resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths. The only reason the lockdown happened is because of the public outcry, which is also the only reason anything positive's happened here. Now with the lockdown being eased despite us still being right in the thick of it, it would seem that our neighbours in Scotland, Wales & NI have a whole lot more common sense than the PM.
  2. 45493 - Spent the entire day mixing & creating MP3s from multitrack files of new songs, and creating structures and sheet music for them as well. Not the most fun part of being a musician, I have to say...
  3. 45491 - I work in a restaurant, and according to current government guidelines restaurants, pubs & bars could be open again as soon as 1 July, which would currently put us at halfway through lockdown. Halfway through lockdown, with what's just been confirmed as the second worst death toll in the world. Needless to say, I'm a bit worried.
  4. 45489 - Boris Johnson has announced Schrödinger's lockdown. Go out and go to work, but don't.
  5. Happy birthday Bono! Been a fan for 12 years (half my life!) and seen you guys 4 times. Have a good day, drink plenty of Guinness, and make sure you're doing a lot of this:
  6. 45484 - I haven't really delved into Rebels yet but Clone Wars is absolutely worth watching all the way through. Especially the later seasons.
  7. 45482 - Happy Star Wars day! Watched the finale of the Clone Wars in the wee early hours of the morning - so sad and so beautiful.
  8. 45481 - Meanwhile in America people are protesting *against* social distancing measures.
  9. 45472 - Two friends of mine, who also happen to be guitarist and drummer in the UK's leading all-female Ramones tribute band (The Ramonas), doing an instrumental of In A Little While. Who here remembers the link between The Ramones and this song?
  10. 45438 - Just over an hour ago, my entire neighbourhood clapped for the NHS and everyone working right now to battle COVID-19. Love truly is bigger than anything in its way.
  11. 45424 - Just saw that Glastonbury's been cancelled, less than a week after they announced the lineup. Bad times.
  12. 45421 - Our idiot PM has been his idiot self again today, making an announcement that recommends that theatres shut but not explicitly issuing a shutdown order. This is bad because it means that these venues won't be able to claim insurance for the time of closure because they were advised rather than ordered. The Dome, which is one of Brighton's biggest venues, has just announced it's temporarily closed. My work have issued some new cleaning protocols but they haven't given us any clarity on the bigger questions - IE should we be expecting a shutdown order? If we get shut down are we going to get compensated with sickpay? This gets more and more stressful with each passing day.
  13. 45416 - I counted two coughing children and two coughing adults at work today. Crazy how far people's hygiene has fallen! And the government's response has been useless, especially compared to other countries. Maybe this will be what finally ends the Tories at the next election.
  14. 45413 - Seeing a lot of people being like "it's nothing, people need to stop panicking about it!" Panicking will do nothing to make the situation better, yes. But sticking fingers in ears, going "LA LA LA" and pretending it isn't happening definitely will make it worse. Wash your hands, with soap & hot water, stay hygienic, follow the advice, don't stock up on things other people need too, and don't cough or sneeze without covering your mouth!
  15. I'm gonna go one further than the people mentioning Blu Ray and say...haven't the band heard of Netflix?
  16. RIP Terry Jones. Life of Brian is still a cinematic and comedic gift.
  17. 45318 - Introduced the parents to Cards Against Humanity. Dad won 3 times. WHAT IS HAPPENING?!
  18. 45315 - Hope everyone's been having a good Christmas & Boxing Day!
  19. In the wake of the political mess unfolding here in the UK, Get Out of Your Own Way is becoming a song of personal strength for me.
  20. 45305 - I'm doing the triple bill tonight as well. 9 hours in a cinema, gonna be good!
  21. 45286 - I now feel more of an exhausted, frustrated but unsurprised anger. Like...again? 9 years of Tory damage on display for everyone to see, headed up by a prime minister who hides in a fridge to avoid questions, and...we voted for this again?
  22. You know what's weird about this last show? It's not just the last show of the tour, it's U2's last one of the entire decade. What a decade it's been.
  23. 45279 - I seriously hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the exit poll is forecasting the biggest Tory majority since Thatcher. I am shaking.
