The director general of the BBC says its audience has continued to grow during the Covid-19 pandemic

I wouldn't piss on the BBC if they were on fire.

Fake News.

Website uses dodgy statistics from pre-print papers and tabloids to try to counter "propaganda". Praying on people who have doubts about COVID-19 by shoving fake and unproven science down their throats.

NHS staff and care workers from abroad are to be exempt, as Labour calls it "the right thing to do".

So let me get this straight. I pay taxes for my entire adult life, I join the NHS and I continue to pay taxes for my entire adult life. I don't get a refund by virtue of now working for the NHS.

An immigrant turns up, pays nothing into the system, gets a job with the NHS and gets everything I already paid for, for free?

Why the fuck do they care, they'll be dead?

Just leave everything to some charity to spite your parents for being petty and be done with it.

The government says "operational issues" in the UK meant 50,000 samples had to be flown to US labs.

The problem is we used to have pathology capacity, then the NHS started consolidating it.

Every hospital used to be able to run its own tests. Nowadays if you have an A&E department, acute care or obstetrics you have the bare minimum for those departments to get by. Everything else including virology gets shipped off to the larger hospitals. So we have these large hospitals running at capacity more or less constantly, who are now the only places we can run the required tests. Which is why the government is setting up these mega labs in a hurry. Meanwhile the smaller hospital labs are twiddling their thumbs with very little work to do because most of the people in hospital have COVID.

The Supreme Court halts criminal's return amid concerns his life would be shortened, changing UK law.

Why does this country give even the slightest of fucks about what the European Court of Human Rights has to say? Their decisions should be like a fart on the wind to our justice system, meaningless, almost non-existent.

Our hospitality should not become a means for people to break the law and expect to stay.

Millions of key workers and people they live with can apply for a coronavirus test online.

How the fuck is a "property manager for poundstretcher" an essential worker.

No wonder they shut the fucking thing down if literally any greedy company can class their staff as key workers, and those fake key workers can then take up test slots.

The Lib Dems says workers should be financially rewarded in the same way as military staff on deployment.

I mean that's nice and all, but how is this going to play out when nurses and doctors get paid extra while the cleaners, scientists, porters and other support staff get nothing despite also putting themselves at risk. Not to mention the fact some of those doctors and nurses aren't even working on COVID specific wards.

With the coronavirus lockdown bringing normal nightlife to an end, some enterprising DJs are going online.

There must be something about the name Ninja that attracts retards.

The Prince of Wales, 71, has mild symptoms but "otherwise remains in good health," Clarence House says.

Me an NHS worker: Can't get tested for the virus, stuck at home for 12 days so far.

Charles: Not hospitalized, mild symptoms, can get tested because he's rich and famous.
