Margie is right. I keep popping in to see how you all are. Thankyou all so much for your posts.   I'm afraid we are not very well the pair of us. This must be the 'Long Covid' that we hear a

Closing pubs completely would push people into drinking at home. It’s a lot cheaper after all. They would probably consume more alcohol and behave even less sensibly.

 

When they're at home they can be as daft as they like. The problem comes from starting out sensible in the pub, guzzling it down to get their quota in before closing and by 10pm they're mingling with no more thought about distancing.

If the pubs were shut they would be drinking at home with their pub going mates. We’re talking about the irresponsible here.There’s lots of them out there saying Covid is a load of nonsense and it won’t happen to them. If it wasn’t for the irresponsible we might be able to contain the situation until a vaccine is available. Unfortunately there are a large number of people who say they will refuse vaccination.

True enough but unlikely to mingle with the same amount of people out and about and in the pub.

As Home Secretary I’d have to make speeches wouldn’t I?   Could I just write them and let Paul deliver them please?  We are a team

You forgot Jill.  Minister of education?  ;)

 

Good point,

 

Cabinet reshuffle.

For services to Canal towpaths Cani is now minister of the environment ,

Peveil is to be  minsister of Ag and fisheries.

Mistress Sparrow is Minister of Education, Irish accent optional..

Margie as our resident Zoom expert and will deliver through the medium of an iPad with prompts by her soul mate, chief cook and bottle washer extraodinaire, Paul

Compo, Scottish secratary, when he can be found

TG is to be Minister of Transport, with railways as they are she will need her sense of humour.

 

The foreign secrataty has resigned her postand will be replaced by the well known gourmet nonnB

The foreign secratary will now be the right horrible Minister for International Trade.  :rolleyes: providing she don't keep losing people in foreign lands...

 

Now can the governemt come to order and forward their propsals for a manifesto - a minstry of silly walks will not be accepted.

 

NB. The budget must not exceed £2.50 or three Tesco tokens.

 

 

 

 

And I'm still carrying the damn luggage... :mellow:

I’m sorry, I’ve been on the pop already this evening, just carry on and I’ll observe proceedings until I can offer constructive comments.  When and where are we having the Party Conference btw?

As minister of Arts, I propose we invest the Tesco vouchers toward the cost of establishing a Nottstalgians committee room/library. An application to the lotteries commission for substantial donation towards a picnic table and stools, so said Nottstalgians  could attend meetings and discuss who should be promoted and who deserves being pilloried. The agenda could be left open to additions.

Lizzie, Seeing as the Party Confetence is all going to be on Zoom this year,  it doesn’t require us to gather anywhere except in our own homes... bit boring really (except you can be nosy and see what books people have got on their bookcases or the colour of their curtains etc.)

....and who is the leader of our glorious party?  Brew?

Lizzie, it would take too much organising as - for security and data protection reasons - I’d need to contact each of you by email,  WhatsApp or text to send a link for a specific Zoom meeting and I am not privy to that information.   If it’s not done properly, we’d get various ‘guests’ joining in and listening to all the conversations.  I’m really feeling like the Home Secretary now with all this talk of security and protection!

As you will have noted Home Secratary I am chief bag toter and guffer.

 

The proposal for Jomab - he  was cosidfered as chief scientific officer and creator of posh smells but sadly failed on eligibility.

The honourabble Minister for Arts will be notified in due course regarding the passage of his  stools

The home secretary mandating a Zoom conference is taken under advisment, horrible  members sans ipad should apply to the Chancelleor for expenses towards the cost of an Etch a Sketch. Use of the contribution for chintz curtains will be frowned upon.

The minister of arts will accept nothing less than a full clinical examination of said stools! The results to be published in the personal column of the N.E.P. or delivered to the Honourable members in a plain envelope.

Your servant sir.

Which pub were you all in? Hope you didn't go over the limit and kept your distance without swaying or staggering.
