I haven't taken the piss out of you. I (and others) have presented reasons as to why we think this government has not done a good job on the current epidemic. You stated that your belief was the opposite so I've asked you several times to say why you hold that belief. I've tried to engage with you with no insults preconceived dismissals.
It's not an unreasonable question. It strikes me as very unreasonable to make a very contentious statement and refuse to back it up in any way, just giving flimsy excuses like, 'You wouldn't listen anyway'. i.e. preconceived dismissals.

If you're just here to be a troll then have the balls to at least admit that.

I have a copy of today's newspaper I am done with if you need it. :lol:

You have indeed made perfectly polite and reasonable requests, but I can only refer you to my previous post.

I hadn’t thought of it that way but although it seems a bit extreme, if that marks me out as a troll, sobeit.

You've been here over 10 years and discussed all sorts of stuff yet can't provide any backup to support the assertion that that government are doing a good job?
No further questions, Mi L'aud.

Yeah, but Corbyn......
People go on too much about the privileged background of politicians but actually Matt Hancock had a very humble upbringing in an Italian workshop owned by a woodworker named Geppetto who turned him into a human boy.

The prescience of Douglas Adams:

The President in particular is very much a figurehead — he wields no real power whatsoever. He is apparently chosen by the government, but the qualities he is required to display are not those of leadership but those of finely judged outrage. For this reason the President is always a controversial choice, always an infuriating but fascinating character. His job is not to wield power but to draw attention away from it.

No, sorry, my mind's blank, I'm afraid.
