Don’t Let The Current Crisis Change You, Liverpool…

Waitrose has apologised for selling…

Rat poison disguised as chocolate bars? ‘Non-essential items’ (as defined by the shop staff and delivery workers you don’t remember electing to pass such judgement)?

The S*n newspaper at its Formby branch.

Yes, a national newspaper. That in a childish display of exactly why the place is a byword for childish tantrums and self-pity, the ‘Echo’ won’t print in full…

After concerns the Three Tuns Lane branch had begun to sell The S*n were raised, the ECHO contacted Waitrose to ask what lay behind the decision.

What a pity Waitrose didn’t have the balls to say ‘Because we can. And people want to buy it. Now fuck off, or we’ll stop selling your rag..’.

In response, a spokeswoman said: “We apologise for any offence caused – this was delivered in error and should not be stocked by our Formby shop.”

Don’t blame me when they decide you shouldn’t sell something else, then. You’ve given them an inch, so they will – eventually – take a mile.

    It surprises me that there are still people who buy newspapers. Even if you don’t have the internet, newspapers are pretty worthless as sources of information about anything.

      They would be more useful if perforated into tear-off sheets.
      Also useful for lining pets’ litter trays, mulching & making logs for the fire.
      But for information? No

    Ah, Liverpool, the city of eternal victimhood, where they always remember Hillsborough (but never Heysell). Where they made their money from the slave trade. Where a bloke who had cycled around the world to raise money for charity, had his bike nicked within hours of entering the city confines. Where families used to visit on day trips, driving down and getting the train back. Where they named an airport after a member of the Beatles who made it the first place he headed for after he started making money. Where they elected a clown whose political views would have caused Stalin to raise his eyebrows, to run the city and then gave him a radio talk show. Where they banned the sale of a newspaper because a reporter failed to describe them as loveable, cheeky, Scousers. A lovely place, allegedly.

    I wrote in similar dismissive terms in, and ended with those words born of bitter personal experience:-

    Scousers; I’ve poured better down the toilet!

    And as for the title of this post: it would take a nuclear explosion to change or alter the Scouse frame of mind: mind you, there’s a thought!

      The study was performed in vitro, not in actual humans. So this treatment (for worms in farm animals) would require extensive testing in human volunteers before being used for CV19 cases.
      It looks promising, as does Hydroxychloroquine, also taking zinc sulphate and Vitamin D supplements.

          I heard on BBC World Service that President Putin uses Chlorine Dioxide, they got an American expert to say it was poisonous as per usual but left out the bit about poisonous to Covid 19, I have been ingesting it for years, Putin might be a follower of OoL

    I’ve been off work now for so long I’m developing a scouse accent…
