    I'll join you in the drink to WOL, Margaret. It's been one of my (decreasing!) sources of sanity over the last few months!

    I shall also be partaking of a tipple or 2, Rebbonk. I have a bottle of bubbly chilling in the fridge, plus a nice choice of nightcaps I got for Christmas to choose from.

    Cheers both!

    I wonder if the local elections are going to be quietly dropped again this year?

    I suspect that they'll be going ahead, Lex. My reasoning is that they're due May 6th, and I don't think even Bozo will dare hold the lockdown that long. But I'm intending registering for a postal vote, I simply can't be bothered with any half-baked restrictions that might be imposed at the voting station.

    Cabinet Office has confirmed today (January 7) that, at this stage, the government is still intending local elections to go ahead, as planned, on Thursday, May 6.

    That's a bit of good news.

    I read that the Queen and Prince Philip have had their vaccine jab, considering the Duke is 100, I don't see the need to take the vaccine as he is pretty well confined to the palace or Balmoral were ever it is they reside these days. Surely they can both stay isolated and take all the necessary precautions.

    A cheap, manipulative, publicity stunt, Margaret. IMO.

    What about peer pressure at work? Some may reluctantly go along with having it to save face in the workplace.

    I think some travel companies are already doing something similar (when they get going again!) - if you can't prove you've had the jab, you're not getting on the plane.

    For international travel, I can understand it. But for anything else, I think it's rather naughty. I don't have a flu jab, flu kills so why would this be any different? Also, as far as I'm aware, no inoculations are compulsory in this country. - And long may it remain so.

    I notice that the muppet from Stratford heading up the rollout has gone very quiet.

    No doubt he'll be doing a bit of self publicity at some point, telling us what a good job he's doing.

    The vaccination programme may be slightly chaotic at times, but the UK's literally millions of jabs ahead of our counterparts on the continent & USA: https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/ne...eliot-19609037
