Knowing how hostile that corner of the world is, I'd say that this is a good sign. Good on Trump and Prince Al Nahyan for starting the process at least. I don't have much faith that it will go anywhere, given that both the Israeli and Arab governments are obstinate in their demands. As I said the m...

Thankfully the rest of my family tested negative but I’m staying in my room as I can feel some minor symptoms starting to come on

Hope you'll be feeling better soon Husk, take care.

We're a small family so therefore tight-knit. My niece is only wee and my dogs need a good playfight now and then so seven months away is more than long enough for me. I stress that there was no implied criticism of your good self in my post. I understand wanting to visit family as a motive for tra...

Leaving the UK after a short trip back to see family. Got to say it was spooky to see places so deserted. I travelled back home on the 3rd of July, and then returned to Egypt on the 25th; partly for pressing medical reasons, but I'd be lying if I didn't admit that seeing my wife for the first time ...

The purpose of university is to take A level students who think they might know something and demonstrate to them that they actually don't know anything, thereby properly preparing them for complex jobs.

I miss the time when we were doing somewhat well against this virus. We really screwed up. I'm not sure we were going to do anything else. Our sociopolitical scene right now is badly polarised and people are making good money keeping it that way. What should have been a situation for us to rally ar...

The calls for a boycott have rung out for quite a time now, and since Corona has hit the world the perfect time to begin that boycott is now. Time to strap on the big boots and hit them where it hurts financially. It's a horribly unsustainable system if a third of the planet suckles at the teat of a...

Nah, we've got 4 nations already full of politicians and all that has brought us is more unhappiness. So another parliament of yet more of them will only serve to make more sadness.

Seems like poor handling again. Instead of sticking with a logical protocol and keeping things in step, they've gone with the lazy approach which only helps raise more exasperated questions than answers.

Yes it is? The Government's top priority should be saving lives, even if that means rich people have to stop having flashy holidays you know.
