Four miles too far!
Were has anyone mentioned tories and blame?

The NHS is short of PPE, Doctors have started a crowdfunding page:

No matter how good their intention is, it’s a disgrace imo.

Seriously mate, try and keep the politics out of it. I’ve said time and time again NOW IS NOT THE TIME FOR POLITICS.

Plus I’m sure you’re quite capable of doing your own research rather than trying to call me out on it.
I think that this effort will face the same difficulties the NHS is already having with PPE.

It's not funding that is required as much as the logistics.

A giant organisation such as the NHS will always move very slowly with a lengthy supply chain.

I know of transport companies that have offered trucks and drivers free of charge to move supplies but are finding it frustrating that there is a delay in being able to provide this assistance.

Exactly and that’s what’s irritating, I believe the Government are doing their best and will have PPE along with many many items on order, what they don’t need is an outside agency trying to circumvent that process in the belief they can do it quicker and better, they actually risk clogging the pipeline up.

No matter how good their intentions are, go away!

NHS Supply Chain is a very slick machine. Majority owned by DHL, I found them a right royal pain in the …. to deal with. They set the bar so high and take no prisoners in not only getting it right but also getting best price.

I know from many engineers out there in the last week, deliveries are absolutely flying into the hospitals and the guys are racking up mega long days getting the equipment commissioned for use. And the training team is all over the UK supporting the introduction of the new kit and bringing new staff up to speed on it.

For all the talk of what people think isn't happening, the vast majority of it is happening, and happening at a speed that is just unreal.

Woah steady on mate, I wasn't calling you out, I asked what I thought was a reasonable question and assumed you may have the answers.
I apologise, knowing which way you dress and how passionate you have been about it I saw your original comment as a veiled dig at the government, plus there were posts who have been slagging of the Tories so I put two and two together incorrectly obviously.
I'm perfectly within my rights to post what I want though, I don't really want the forum police telling me what I can and can't do, unless it's a mod of course (y)

Tikka Is just how the meat is cooked.. I always have a tikka Madras as it adds extra flavour to the meat and makes sure it's cooked

You can tikka any curry
No, tikka can refer to the cut, but typically it is a spice blend. If you ordered chicken tikka it would be pieces that had been marinated in a spice blend. Madras is a different spice blend.

14 words I posted and get the third degree because you read those words as a veiled dig and apparently you know me! :rolleyes:

You crack on posting what you like, I find it strange I’ve never seen you ask any other poster to justify their “random irritation”

Honestly mate, I tried having a normal conversation like I would with anyone and you've gone all ranty again.
I wasnt asking you to justify anything, I was merely wanting you to reciprocate as I didn't have the answer myself.
Stop being so touchy.

Listened to a local (UK) radio station online over the weekend. The local funeral director was advertising their services, bad times are never universal it seems

Red Bull motorsport boss Helmut Marko said he advised his drivers to become infected with coronavirus while the season is in hiatus. The 76-year-old said he had the idea to bring his Formula 1 drivers and juniors together in a camp, which "would be the ideal time for the infection to come". "They are all strong young men in good health. That way they would be prepared whenever the action starts," he said.

Words almost fail me - he should be banned from the sport for life.
