  1. We increased our cash reserves in Premium Bonds by 8k plus simply by getting our bucket list holiday deposits returned. Not everybody has bucket list items in their household budget of course, but we also had the best part of another 8k in our current accounts, some of which went to more PB's yesterday. Keep in mind Digger Mansions is very comfortable, not tax haven members. It's been asked if we will go back to how things were before. No, it won't. I don't think it's possible to imagine how different our personal worlds will be, let alone life nationally or internationally from here on in. And yes, I welcome the unknown changes coming..._
  2. ”......what's a pile of litter got to do with it....." Litter is what this plastic waste issue is all about. It's just a litter problem, all the world needs to do is tidy up. The screaming abdabs, who run around getting hysterical about micro plastics, never get excited about the sand ingested from a pot of Blackpool winkles. Now I'm the first to acknowledge that sand and micro plastics are different chemical substances, but they both go in one end of a digestive system and come out the other end causing no danger to the ingester..._
  3. Oh please, stop scraping the dregs of plausibility off the pavement. Some research has shown that BPA can seep into food or beverages from containers....... Exposure to BPA is a concern because of possible health effects....... Additional research suggests a possible link between BPA and increased blood pressure......... *DiggerUK warning*......fact checking can harm ignorance..._
  4. When things go well with the vaccine rollout, they go well. Mrs.D, who got to jump the list because she is a Community Care Worker and had dealt with a client, who had a third cousin who had a neighbour, who also had a third cousin who knew somebody who was found to be a carrier, was put forward for a jab in January by the local authority.......All well and good you might think, so long as you ignore the fact that she has been waltzing in and out of between 10 and 20 houses a week for the last year and nobody thought Community Care Workers should be prioritised for the jab. Anyway, today she turns up for jab 2........and, you guessed it, they haven't got any left for when she turns up for her appointment. And what is the latest dog whistle for the lockdown nazis?..... Vaccination passports!! Good 'ere, innit..._
  5. We have a Roku dongle thingy in addition to our freeview box. We also have access to Netflix by piggybacking on the kids subscription. If we had to pay for Netflix we wouldn't bother. We are usually greeted with a lot of stuff on our `do you want to continue watching‘ list because we don't know how to delete them once we have found out they are not interesting. There is a lot of good stuff to watch on Netflix, but then again, there's a lot of free stuff elsewhere to watch as well..._
  6. That's correct, but they were known to be carcinogenic. Truth is, you could eat a lump of Lego every day and never get anything more than funny poos to play with..._
  7. As plastic isn't toxic, poisonous or carcinogenic I can only puzzle as to why it has become so dangerous since 2017. Prior to then it wasn't seen on any watch list from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and still isn't. Certainly no peep was squeeked by Boaty McBoatface, Archangel Greta or Hugh Fearnley-Whitingstall before 2017 until the Chinese stopped taking plastic waste unless it was 99.5% unmixed. I'm guessing it is just coincidental that the the dates correlate. Those bloody Chinese are getting to be a real problem..._
  8. I'm not in the least surprised. A nation raised believing that fish have fingers is easily fooled..._
  9. It doesn't matter to me if it is described to as being inoculated against Covid, or vaccinated against Covid. I don't get fussed if it is said you can be vaccinated for Covid or inoculated for Covid either. What people do with their own arm is their right to decide. We are both booked for our first jabs; we waited to see how it affected those injected first before rolling up our sleeves. As the programme has been going on around the world with no mass outbreaks of zombyism for the best part of three months now, we judged it safe. We aren't getting jabbed after being inspired by the pronouncements of the establishment scientific quacks, we do it out of pragmatism. Mrs.D. is a community health worker and is in and out of 15/20 households a week, we viewed it as prudent, that's all. More important than that is our bucket list....We cruise a lot and it has become obvious that you will probably not be allowed to board ship without the jab. Getting insurance will likely be out of the question to boot. I do not condemn those who don't want the jab, but I do damn those who propose punishing those refusing. Maybe we should send refusejabs to education camps, or camps of protective custody......for their own good of course..._
  10. The deceitful overstating of deaths due to Covid is once again hitting the news. Former chairman of the Royal College of GPs claims..... "we have over-recorded Covid-19 as a cause of death". The question is, why? https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9305405/Grieving-relatives-demand-inquiry-loved-ones-wrongly-certified-virus-victims.html
  11. Out of interest, what punishments would you propose for people freely expressing their opinion..._
  12. What use is something that is not available..._ Now it is available..._
  13. And doesn't elicit any coherent explanation sadly..._
  14. Is that a claim that Covid is or isn't seasonal, or that flu is or isn't seasonal. It's a new way of looking at your position, but not sure exactly what I'm looking out for. The only reason I raised the question is because I'm led to believe that too many have not been following the guidelines and that naughtiness justifies more lockdowns to prevent the spread of Covid. At the same time we are being asked to believe that people observing the guidelines has virtually eliminated flu this winter......I'm starting to think this is all above my pay grade to comprehend..._
  15. Again I have to admit to being totally confused with this argument. You aren't the only person to make the claim that successful social distancing, regular washing of hands, the wearing of face masks, self isolating in our homes and only making essential journeys has virtually eliminated flu and flu deaths this winter. My confusion arises because although adhering to these measures has cancelled flu, it hasn't had the same effect on Covid19. Makes me wonder if all those measures urged by the scientists is of any use in combatting Covid at all..._
  16. So now you'r claiming they have proved a negative. Or at least it seems you are. He had all his tests come back negative. As he had COPD, was 99 and reported as "being chesty" just prior to death isn't the most probable cause of death more obvious..._
  17. Just one problem.......he had only recently had multiple negative covid tests..._ https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9279767/BEL-MOONEY-dad-died-chronic-illness-hes-officially-Covid-victim.html
  18. I found her article very articulate and gave me no hint of being tainted with grief. I was particularly impressed with how she reported the conversation she had with the doctor who signed the death certificate. "That night, the GP who had seen Dad the day before and was called to certify his death kindly telephoned to express his condolences. He told me that, apart from the chestiness, Dad seemed 'well cared for'. Then I asked what he had put as the cause of death. 'Covid-19,' he replied. When I challenged this, he explained that it was because there had been deaths from Covid on the dementia floor . . . so they consider it reasonable to assume . . . 'But Doctor,' I protested, 'an assumption isn't a diagnosis.' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9279767/BEL-MOONEY-dad-died-chronic-illness-hes-officially-Covid-victim.html
  19. "...........The Daily Mail is a scabrous hate-sheet, filled with vindictive falsehoods for the most part. Bel Mooney is almost certainly mistaken about the cause of her father's death." It is obvious that she can write, I therefore assumed she could also read what was on her fathers death certificate. My mistake, please accept my apologies. I shall read the article again and contact her about her errors..._ https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9279767/BEL-MOONEY-dad-died-chronic-illness-hes-officially-Covid-victim.html
  20. As one of the last of the looney left, it still amazes me that The Daily Mail produces most of the best articles on the Covid Deceit. I wouldn't even use the Guardian for toilet paper in an emergency. Today Bel Mooney recounts the fraudulent way her fathers death was attributed to covid. The government apologists for the quack scientists still shocks me, now we see how they turn a blind eye as the pain is inflicted on families..._ https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9279767/BEL-MOONEY-dad-died-chronic-illness-hes-officially-Covid-victim.html
  21. Considering they can be obtained from Atkinsons, for much of a sameness and a lot less worry, then why buy on flea bay. (I won't make any smartass comment about VAT) Next week the price will be different, the VAT will still be the same..._ https://atkinsonsbullion.com/silver/silver-coins/1oz-silver-coins/2021-uk-britannia-1oz-silver-coin
  22. You must stop exaggerating, the number of fatalities from those who contact covid is under 1%..._
  23. OK posters, take your pick, A or B A. Quarantine the sick, and take reasonable precautions to stop those who are identified as vulnerable from contracting the illness. B. Attempt to “control the virus” by preventing millions of healthy people from having contact with other healthy people. .......Whilst I'm still here put your hand up if you think lockdowns work..._
  24. This inquiry hasn't come about because anybody wants to explain what QE is. For my money it is a propaganda exercise to persuade everybody it is wonderful. Therefore we must QE on, #QE.gov.boe.upyours everybody. I am convinced that they are ready to unleash a boom with the fuel a boom needs, oodles of easy cash. How else are they to address the deep financial problems that exist? Expect masses of big spending infrastructure projects. My suspicion is that this government could possibly roll out a version of Universal Income......on a temporary national emergency basis you understand..... to deal with the unprecedented problems brought on by blah, blah, blah..._
  25. It's candy floss. The story centres around dimwits who are too incompetent to turn up at the ferry with proper documentation that is correctly filled out. Its the equivalent of listening to jam sandwiches checking in at RyanAir moaning because they aren't being being allowed on the plane without a passport..._
