There's lots of gripes on the site, but sometimes it's good to have a moan about everything in general and nothing in particular.

It may not go away, but seriously, who is it going to affect? The small percentage of the population who will not have had jabs will be unlikely to catch it as it's much less transmissible by people who've been vaccinated; and only a very tiny percentage of people who have been vaccinated are going to catch it, and only a few of them will get ill.

So anything Covid has to say is going to fall on deaf ears. We must return to normal soon.

You all seem to think that Covid is beaten with the jabs and that everthing is going to return to the way it was. Covid has got something to say about that.

Mental illness is now the next epidemic in the UK. Covid has opened a pandoras box that was just below the visible surface and being managed by anti-psychotic drugs.

British gas is in termoil, they are loosing customers at an alarming rate, in so much as their share prices are crashing and people are withdrawing their money from them. Their employees are being sacked, staffing is being reduced at an alarming rate, they are not furfilling their contractual obligations to their customers to the point of criminal behaviour. B/Gas is a crash waiting to happen.

Does British Gas managers employ morons that are totally usless because they are cheap? Try to speak to a customer advisor and you will be baffled by foreign speakers that only have a limited understanding of the English language. BG workers are so fearful of their jobs that they do their most to suck up to the company and screw the customer. If you are a B Gas customer, have you been left on the edge of madness trying to make sense of them?

Hi everyone,

We're trying to save our local pub in Dalkeith. The only one that actually has real ale. We've got a petition together and it would be fantastic if we could get a few more signatures.

Thanks

@Slacker, It's great that there are monons like you around to believe the garbage fed by the establisment. We'll see who is right or wrong after the lockdown ends and everybody mixes again.

Everybody in Government concered with COVID seems to be patting themselves on the back, and telling us that the pandemic is beaten. Readly? Lots of money has been put into the drugs companies pockets, that's what they really wanted, MONEY,MONEY,MONEY. You have not beaten COVID, not by a long shot.

I am selling an invalid scooter on ebay, who will not allow me to send prospective buyers my address, it is against their rules, but folk keep asking me. Will I accept cash? I have pinned a note to my ad explaining my predicament. ebay keeps saying my item is sold. This firm thinks it's so smart. Yet it is sadly lacking in plain common sense.

All this lecturing from on high about how we shouldn't book any holidays yet is missing one point; many of us had already booked last year's holiday when all this mess occurred, and on the assumption that all would be well by this summer (well who didn't think it would?) simply transferred all the arrangements to this summer.

What are we meant to do? Ask the same travel companies for a second refund or deferment?

COVID-19: Boris Johnson 'very optimistic' all coronavirus restrictions will end in England by 21 June.

It's either this or the country goes into financial depression. I'm waiting to see the shock as the chancellor delivers his next budget. Happy days are ahead.
