The world is going to hell in a handcart.
People are panicking world wide over Coronavirus, schools are closing, flights being cancelled, businesses are being affected.
In parts of our country floods are seriously affecting lives and livelihoods, some families have lost everything.

I could go on.

Headlines on Google news?
Where was our PM’s expected child conceived?

If the world is not going mad then I am.

You are right - the world has gone mad!!

The Bible is full of it----pestilence, floods, starvation etc. Obviously written in times like these. The world is on its head.

You forgot to mention the plague of locusts in East Africa - just devastating the crops.
The terrible war in Syria

But all is well, a new baby for Carrie and Borrie.

I agree annsixty.

Economy too has taken a huge hit as corona virus has been allowed to spread worldwide.

We were informed of the deadly Coronavirus then watched helplessly as people were still allowed to travel with the advice, if they felt ill, to self isolate!!

People are panic buying and I also noticed Amazon selling six small bottles of hand gel, normally 99p a bottle for the unbelievable price of £70!

The fact Boris is having yet another baby does nothing to cheer me. Where is he?

Some experts say that ordinary soap is better than hand gel.

Apologies - the above should have been on the Coronavirus thread.
