You're quite right. The scaremongering, and the negativity are being broadcast by the media. However isn't it the government's responsibility to take the lead ? If the government were to tell the whole truth in clear, simple, idiot proof language I feel sure a lot of the economic damage currently being done could be avoided.JayK wrote: ↑Wed Oct 28, 2020 11:20 amI tried to reply with a giphy but it didn't work.

When exactly the same thing is happening worldwide...it's not OUR fuckin decease....it's everywhere,and far worse than us
in a lot of cases.
This is a new Virus that is spreading and mutating,and it's killing people,and is showing absolutely no signs whatsoever
of slowing down...it's spread by contact...SO..Stop and limit Contact...rocket Science it aint.
That's what we are trying to do Limit Contact in every conceivable way,while trying to somehow keep the Economy
trickling along to limit the damage to it.
The scare mongering is done by our Press/Media ...not the Government and Scientists ...they're the one perpetrating
and recycling the Garbage...
Absolutely everything but everything that is put in place is wrong....Lockdown is wrong, a tiered lockdown is wrong,
do nothing is wrong....furlough is wrong...shutting pubs early is wrong...keeping them open is wrong,no fans at footie
Burnham's speil.......it's unfair to lock us Mancs down but fuckin go ahead and lock the whole country down,by all
means...what is it with these leftie types, have absolutely know idea how an economy works..totally clueless...
Said before I like the guy, but is coming out with such crap,have to switch the Andy Burnham Show off now...
Why the fuck is the minority view always shouted the loudest in this country..over every subject not just this...
Everyone I see and talk to gets it...and I've been around a bit and enjoy speaking to people,getting their opinions..
and that opinion is we're doing what we have to do as well as we're able to do in these Circumstances..
It's fucking tough and Impossible to get right,have to get as close to it as we can tho..
I take the Press/Medias interpretation of this with a pinch of salt...as I do 90% of their stuff..they don't report news,they
Report/broadcast opinions ...opinions that make the best Headlines at that..
And you're also right it isn't just our government but government's the world over. However we're here in the UK and most of us living here are concerned about the long term futures of our children and grandchildren who live here. I care more about the economic well being of this country than I do about others because I have children who are working in this country and grandchildren who hope eventually to be able to get a decent job and enjoy a decent standard of living in this country. If I lived in the US, or Russia or Germany I would undoubtedly feel the same about the government's actions in those countries and not give a flying toss about Boris Johnson, Andy Burnham or all the other cunts here. I would have enough to worry about with my own nation's group of clowns.
And again I agree with your assessment of the press and what it reports. I know one or two people who were involved with the press and they used to say that good news is no news. So I think they report that people are supposedly dropping dead like flies and that plague pits are secretly being prepared on the Yorkshire moors and studiously ignore the other side of the coin. And as has been demonstrated time and time again there are enough gullible fuckers in the world to believe the garbage they read in the press and, increasingly in the modern world, on the internet. But that is where government's have a responsibility isn't it ? To be the voice of calm and reason. Not just another bloke running around, flapping his arms up and down and crying "We're all doomed" at the top of his voice and relying on silly soundbite adverts to perpetuate Project Fear.
