COVID-19 coronavirus

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

thanks for asking. I gather he's on the mend, and is doing much better (relatively speaking - it's a slow process)

Scandalous. This money should be given to the healthcare and frontline workers instead.

Would be interesting to see which of them, if any, voted against this.

doesn't look like it was a vote. it's a budget offer.

there is an app called CommonsVotes that will give you breakdowns on who and what for, vote by vote

It's not as bad as it sounds. It's money for their staff to work at home; laptops, office chairs, headsets, all these things need paying for. However it's true that some MPs (*cough*JeremyCorbyn*cough*) have donated their extra 10K to the NHS.

I think what rankles though is that the advice was "If you can work from home, you should."
If these people can't work from home then why are they given a bunch of cash to enable them to? Pretty sure there are plenty of people who could work from home if they had the gear. They're not getting a handout as far as I know.

If MP's have been able to redirect this "grant" away from it's intended usage so easily it just again demonstrates the lack of control over the parliamentary expenses system, I wish my expenses were as badly administered. OK, any demonstration of support for the NHS is obviously well intentioned but it merely highlights a much greater wrong in our system.

MY brother says it looks like when a pet has an operation & that I should wear a cone of shame when I go to the shops on Tuesday.

She must be one of the folks who wouldn't go and see The Madness of George III because she hadn't seen the first two installments.

(Edit to add - oh, I see other people made similar jokes in the thread. My bad. But still...)
