Yeah sorry to hear that news Merman. Hearing stories like that makes me angry at these idiots who say this is all fake etc. Hope they all improve and make a full recovery

Asda are now offering the jab,
the anti Covid one not the type that rather dodgy looking bloke sells from his van at night
Only some stores and the logistics aren't straight forward. A lot of pharmacies in stores are surrounded by other till points, kiosk, self serve ,optical etc with no space to social distance. Its going to be a nightmare for staff already at breaking point.

Just as we'll never run out of toilet roll (Despite idiots thinking we will) we'll also be fine for clothes if supermarkets switch to vacinne stations. We'll never run out !

There was that thing last year where some supermarkets refused to sell clothes as they where deemed "None essential"

That reminds me, im down to my last roll

Wasn't the clothes thing a few Welsh Tesco's going mental in their circuit breaker? We get less deliveries but still operational. Baby clothes are essential though. They eat a few meal and bam, new clothes needed.

Yeah it was Wales, they sort of run seperate much like Scotland does, England just has reduced availibility so when its Gone it may be Gone a while as deliveries are swapped for more essential stuff, clothing stores may however still be shut so could be supermarket clothing only.

Those thatcan please give my best to MPM, and of course wish the rest of the Old Guard well too.

Does anyone else here think the biggest problem with Good Morning Britain is Piers Morgan? It's his job to criticise the government and hold them to account but he discredits himself by harassing government ministers with stupid questions:

Piers Morgan: Mr Hancock, the government's handling of this crisis has been a disgrace. We have indecisive leadership and still not enough people have been tested and still not enough people have been vaccinated. I think you should resign from your position as Health Secretary and buy me an ice lolly.

Matt Hancock: That's an interesting point, Piers but over 4,000 people over the age of 80 we-

Piers Morgan: Will you buy me an ice lolly?

Matt Hancock: Maybe later, Piers but right now I'm addressing your con-

Piers Morgan: Our viewers deserve an answer. Will you buy me an ice lolly?

I hope Piers enjoyed his holiday in Antigua over Christmas.

It's a shame that news coverage has descended to this childish point scoring and willy waving.

You dont seem to grasp the two sets of guidelines they have in place
The ones everybody follows and the ones they follow that are a contradiction to them

Maybe if Government ministers actually gave a direct answer when asked a sensible question, then Piers wouldn’t resort to the silly ones?

They don’t even answer a yes or no question with a yes or no anymore
