There is one scheduled for today.

MissAdventure Thu 21-Jan-21 13:35:27

Apologies.
It will be Pritti Patel leading it.

Oh no I cannot stand her - she speaks so badly!

MissAdventure Thu 21-Jan-21 13:42:42

I speak the same, so I can't really complain.
She at least doesn't "erm, arr, oh, umm, err" though.
I find boris almost impossible to listen to when he does that.

EllanVannin Thu 21-Jan-21 14:07:07

You get used to her missin' the " g's " proving you don't listen out for them grin

Thank you MissAdventure.
I suppose it will be on at 5 o'clock just as I'm cooking the dinner.

I switch over to BBC2 and watch Pointless instead.

dragonfly46 Thu 21-Jan-21 14:24:53

Me too Casdon

MissAdventure Thu 21-Jan-21 16:58:13

Looks like I'll be watching pointless, too.
I can't find anything about any briefing on tv.

I must have made it up in my mind! blush

MayBee70 Thu 21-Jan-21 16:58:32

Perhaps someone will ask her about the missing security data? And the fact that she wanted the country to lockdown in March.

Peasblossom Thu 21-Jan-21 17:01:11

I’ve just switched on for the briefing that never was😀

Judge Judy then😬

MissAdventure Thu 21-Jan-21 17:02:55

Piers Morgan asked her about the data the other day.

It's somewhere, not lost, but she didn't seem sure where it might be.

Are you sure you didn't watch the briefing and still watch pointless? hmm

Kate1949 Thu 21-Jan-21 17:08:49

It's only on the news channels I think. We're watching.

MissAdventure Thu 21-Jan-21 17:10:05

Im not going mad!
This is from the 'I'

When is the next Covid announcement?

A fire in India, the city of Pune, has destroyed their Serum Institute which manufactures AstraZeneca vaccine, 5 people were also killed when a few floors of the building were destroyed. Production of Covishield vaccine will continue.

Didn't they like our vaccine ?

Alygran Thu 21-Jan-21 17:42:01

Covid shield is the local version of the AZ vaccine in India.

That's tragic and very worrying too.

Did they produce other drugs as well?
Many of our drugs are produced in India now.

Peasblossom Thu 21-Jan-21 17:46:09

H, was the programme listing wrong then. It was the Bidding Room when I put it on and then it said Pointless after. Nothing about a briefing.

Oh well. I expect it’ll be on the News. Anything interesting?

rosie1959 Thu 21-Jan-21 18:00:06

It was on Sky and the BBC news channel not regular BBC1
My I pad also flash’s it up from Sky news and the Government Facebook pagev

MissAdventure Thu 21-Jan-21 18:00:34

It must have been very brief.
I can't find it.
