  1. Coronachat - vents, whines, flummoxes & miscellaneous

    No one's expecting you to pick up medical waste and I wouldn't either. Interesting you link it to a demographic change. Different cultures, different standards I assume. We have the same with neighbours that recently moved into the Apartment block. Bins now overflowing, plastic in environmental waste, can't be asked to breakdown boxes etc. Definately a different demographic profile to the rest of us.

    I think Cowboy was talking about everyday rubbish which incidentally now includes PPE so no need to get over excited. I picked up broken bottles and bits of rubbish yes. Nothing more. We don't live in Berlin so while we do have people pissing up against the wall and the odd one dropping their Kegs for a dump, I doubt it's anything like what you see.

    I've done both in the UK but not here and I've seen others do it here. But just moaning about it doesn't solve the problem.

    They use to be clean and in the 80's when I was stationed here there was a lot of civic pride. But the World has changed, generally people don't give a shit anymore and it's always someone else's responsibility. But what's stopping you picking it up or saying something when you see stuff being dropped?
  5. Politics Gen XYZ

    He's the best of a bad bunch. Pritti would probably lose  it, JRM is a past master of pulling strings from behind and not being directly in the line of fire, Gove knows he would be no match and as for the rest, inexperienced or just plain numpties.

    Even though the Guardian is not a Tory mouthpiece, that piece really opens up the inability of the Tories to deal with anyone with some intelligence..
  7. The Vent - No Chat!

    Having lost a good friend from Myeloma a year ago and knowing what it does to the body I can only say she is in a better place. Is there anyone you can share your grief with? You know where I am.
