Theatres, cinemas, gyms and leisure centres must also close as soon as they reasonably can, the PM says.

Ah well. If my orderly and civilised local is to be closed, I'll just have to take my chances in the supermarket, fighting my way past the coughing and feverish customers brawling over toilet roll, if I want to get a drink tonight.

On the bright side: while the slabs of crappy lager are gone, there doesn't seem to be a shortage of high-end booze for sale and that may be one of the few (legal) physical pleasures I can get for a while.

The huge challenge the world faces to find an exit strategy to end the lockdowns and return to normal.

I've had it up to here with the BBC's Kung Flu/Chinese Virus/Coronapocalypse coverage.

Imagine this doom-laden prose - this wall-to-wall end-of-days narrative - continuing for another 12-18 months/2 years/basically forever (i.e. the only options they offer here). It can only last so long before people will be clambering over each other to contract the virus, in the hope that they could check into an ICU and end their lives right there inside a hermetic bubble. It would frankly be disappointing if we only got a cough and a wheeze for a few days and still had to put up with the BBC for the rest of our miserable, virus-free, shut-in lives.

It is a bogus narrative because no-one aside from completely asocial, introverted loners will be willing to put up with social isolation for anywhere near that length of time. They will do it for a few weeks, or maybe a bit longer if it comes in bursts instead of all at once. Doing it for 2 years, or indefinitely? I think 99% of people would rather just take their chances with the virus.

Imagine saying to gays in the 1980s: to stop the spread of AIDS you cannot have buttsex any more, ever (or until we find a treatment, which took 20 years I think). Yet the narrative here is that to prevent the spread of Corona you cannot now socialise IRL, for an indefinite period of time, unless it's people you already live with, and even then you have to stay 1-2m away from them. It's total BS - I don't think even North Korea could or would impose such measures on its citizens indefinitely.

About the only permanent measure I would be willing to consider would be sealing the UK's borders for good, and that should have been done back in December when a few bat-eating Wuhanese were feeling a bit coughy and short of breath.

Ashleigh and Ged Barnett allege that until the one-to-one sessions began last September, their daughter appeared comfortable in her body and showed little interest in transgender issues.

"Transgender" is bullshit. It's all about brainwashing children to affirm the fetishes of a proportion of homosexual men.

I am only hoping the coronavirus pandemic will empower normal people to stand up to this bullshit. It ought to help juggle priorities, at the very least.

As the first anniversary of the Christchurch mosque attacks approaches, two international extremism trackers say authorities need to do more to stop the “potential” for a right-wing terror attack in Australia.

Australia is a white country.

Ending the "white Australia policy" was the single worst thing that happened to Australia, and it happened without a referendum or a mandate.

Now, white Australians are to be gaslit into believing that THEY are the problem, and the flimsy pretext is a one-off attack that happened in a completely different country.

The pill is already free in Scotland to people who are at the highest risk of contracting the virus.

Given the expected pressures on the NHS over the next few months, this was perhaps not the best time to bring this out.

If we are seriously at a point with the coronavirus epidemic where (according to the BBC) all over-70s in the entire UK are going to be expected to live as hermits for several months, I think gay men under 70 can't exactly complain about keeping it in their fucking pants for a few months.

Or, you know, just wear a condom. Like a normal person.

If there's one single silver lining from this horrible virus, it'll be eroding the normie population's tolerance for woke shit. If you want to put it up a man's bum without wrapping it up first, then that's on YOU and YOU pay for the consequences. Don't expect other people and the cash-starved NHS to fund your hedonistic bum fun when their lives have been decimated by the coronavirus.

A Tory senior committee chair says the announcement "fails to demonstrate the urgency that is required".

We already have police turning up at people's workplaces to harass them over non-PC tweets and - a direct quote - "check their thinking". (I.E. the police in the UK now act as literal thought police.)

Isn't our social media output regulated enough already?

Who regulates the regulators?

EXCLUSIVE Tommy Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was visiting UKIP Peer Lord Pearson in March 2018 when he passed the guard in the London landmark.

Tommy should change his name by deed poll to "Tommy Robinson whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon".

Seriously, why do they feel the need to say that every time? Is it more pertinent to the story than "Tommy Robinson, who likes crisps", or "Tommy Robinson, who enjoys most films starring Gerard Butler"?

And why is it so important that we know Tommy's real name, as opposed to say Banksy's, or Andy McNab's?

Wendi Williams alleges American Airlines defamed her when it said she spilled a drink on the Jan. 31 flight.

Reclining seats are a problem of the airlines' own making.

The design - eating into another passenger's space - is stupid. If they have reclining seats at all, the top of the headrest should remain in a fixed position while the bottom portion of the seat slides forwards. That way, by reclining you are only reducing your own leg space, not the space of another passenger. This is a design I've seen for First Class seats on some trains in Britain and it works well.

Besides that, I note that the flight she was on - New Orleans to Charlotte - is super short, less than 2 hours. Is there any reason for a flight that short to have reclining seats at all? If those same planes are used for medium to long flights also, maybe have a mechanism to lock them out of use on short flights, so passengers cannot recline them? Or heck, just have it as a rule (like for takeoff/landing and during meal times) and enforce the rule, just as they do for seat belts.

Most low cost airlines operating within Europe (where most flights are

My initial reaction whenever I hear anything like this: you first, luv.

And she's not a "Cambridge academic", she's in Cambridge (the city) technically, but is at something called "Anglia Ruskin University", an institution ranked at 120 (out of 131) in the British university league tables. These shit tier "universities" effectively exist as incubators and storage facilities for unemployable SJWs, and creating them was probably the worst thing the John Major government ever did.
