Just as well they weren't born many years ago, when a generation had to 'throw away the best years of their lives, for something that didn't benefit them'.

Many of the younger generation don't realise the sacrifice that bought their right to do as they please!

I agree. There will be nothing 'temporary' about it. If the Government tries to withdraw it next year, can you imagine the outcry from the usual sources!

I wouldn't be a bit surprised if it is extended to Easter and Christmas holidays too. The sky is the limit, probably, now.

It seems to me, that, at the first sign of resistance, Boris caves in.Governments often do this, to try and appeal to 'celebrities' and such.

Mr. Rashford has just lumbered the taxpayer with a bill of £120 million.

This is the last straw for me. After well over 30 years of being a Conservative Party member, I will not be renewing my membership this year. I want a Government who shows some backbone, and this is not one. I will not be joining any other Party either. I have better things to do with my money.

I agree with you both. Because of our kindness, and lack of' racism', many thousands of people are alive today throughout the world, who would not be. Even now we are urged to give generously to those abroad who live in poverty, and many millions are raised through our response. And, I'm sorry to say, a fat lot of good it is doing us! I will not be giving any longer to charities where the money goes abroad, often, to Countries who hate us.

This morning, I received a request to renew my membership on the Conservative Party. After very many years of membership, this time I don't think I'll bother. Increasingly, the Party does not speak for people like me. I'm obviously not 'diverse' enough!

Rishi Sunak, looks and sounds like a Prime Minister. He exudes a demeanour of calmness and confidence.

It does matter, in my opinion, how a person looks and sounds. I'm not really surprised that he is at the top. For a relative newcomer, he has behaved well. Few would have done a better job.

I suspect, very few.

Yes, and all the high value stores were looted in USA cities. Why bother to work and save to buy a iphone, iMac, Rolex etc. when you can get one (or many) for free?
There is no excuse for this.

Its about time that someone did something, before there is not an undamaged or looted, or burnt, building in the Country. The President is at the helm now. I think he must act.

I haven't agreed when the Government says it is a good idea, since Maggie Thatcher. We will not see her like again, mores the pity.
