Looks as if it's another lock down then.

Is it televised? BBC1 has the Rugby on....

As you will be unsurprised to hear, they’ve got the time wrong.

It will be at 5pm

Smileless2012 Sat 31-Oct-20 13:57:13

Oh right; thanks WW2.

Oopsadaisy4 Sat 31-Oct-20 14:00:39

Thanks WW2

Where did you hear / read this? I've had R4 on all afternoon and it's not been mentioned. Thank you

You make me smile whitewave, which is useful at the moment.

Whitewavemark2 Sat 31-Oct-20 14:12:06

BBC news.

I've got soppy Christmas films on Ch 5 ,so missing everything.

GrannySomerset Sat 31-Oct-20 15:52:30

Me too, Ellan, while DH watches rugby. If, as we expect, the news is bad I won’t hurt for not knowing instantly.

Grannybags Sat 31-Oct-20 15:58:14

Thanks for letting us know I would have missed that.

Oh well, here we go again 😢

All the panic buying starts again!

Davida1968 Sat 31-Oct-20 16:06:29

I thought it was going to be at 4.00.p.m. so that Boris could watch the rugby at 4.45......

Whitewavemark2 Sat 31-Oct-20 17:02:32

6.30 now folks.

Trisha57 Sat 31-Oct-20 17:04:58

It's taking longer than expected to charge BJ's batteries!

Trisha57 Sat 31-Oct-20 17:05:38

Sorry, I've been binge-watching "Humans" and got a bit carried away!

Whitewavemark2 Sat 31-Oct-20 17:06:56

It sounds as if there is a lot of opposition from Tory MPs.

A lot of it has already been leaked.

There must be a hell of a row going on

merlotgran Sat 31-Oct-20 17:50:32

grin sw That's just what we've been saying and it might not be until 6.30 now.

Whitewavemark2 Sat 31-Oct-20 17:52:35

Suggestion that Sunak is refusing to pay up.

EllanVannin Sat 31-Oct-20 17:54:27

No plates or plant-pots being thrown out of the windows yet grin

suziewoozie Sat 31-Oct-20 17:54:57

Blood on the carpet. But whose?
