and where's the fun in that?

At least in the olden days you could carry on where you left off monday lunchtime be battered by 7pm be asleep in your food by 8pm and bright eyed and bushy tailed (if a little unsteady on your feet ) for tuesday morning and all you had to deal with was the guilt you felt when you got genuine enquiries as to if you felt better now

yup having snogged the face off a stranger, eaten some sort of mystery kebab with your bare hands and then gone back to an after party where you shared a joint around multiple people

It's got to a stage now where I'm not sure what to do, I think that they're going to introduce so many rules that it'll be impossible to live without being forced into taking the jab, it's so depressing. 

 

I spoke to a work colleague on the phone today, he's from Texas but lives in Europe, he said that if it comes to not being able to work and earn a living he'll have to take the jab, he's in his 50's (same as me). We've both been out of work since this shite started and because of the job we do (self employed with no help from gov, I run (ran) a business doing English projects in schools in Europe) we both have had no income, relying on savings and our partners salaries. 

We both agreed that we're not concerned about ourselves but about our kids when they start to come after them for the jab. 

I've heard talk on here about moving into the countryside and setting up communes to live but let's face it, that's never going to happen for many reasons.

So what do we do? Be noble and true to the cause and lose our houses and go and live on the streets? My son is 4 years old and is an only child, it's ok to say home school him but what about interaction with other kids that for me is the most important thing. 

Sorry for the post but it's getting to a point where I'm not sure what to do. 

 

 

 

Have you looked into online teaching?

You would probably need to change what you do but you could open up increase in income because you can now cater  world wide rather than restricted to one particular locality and can work 24/7 if you wanted. There is always someone awake, somewhere in the world. 😜

If that is real it's shocking. I do wonder if real though. the policeman's scruffy shirt and hanging out of his jeans? The unconfident way he spoke.......... edit: or maybe the police have just very low standards these days......

I agree. He referred to his scruffy attire as a uniform. All I saw was a bullet proof ( or plain) vest. They guy at the back looked like he had just been released from borstal. The female ( if it is a female...never know these days) looks more enamoured with her colleague than the reason they are supposed to be there. He basically said that he cant arrest her inside her home, but that she will be arrested if she goes out. So he is saying she is currently under house arrest and will be arrested for a breach if she leaves. They are obviously monitoring her social media and playing the cat and mouse game. People need to rebel en masse....rebut all charges... at all times. the system wont be able to handle it.

I think you are closer to the mark with lower standards,and its still an offence to impersonate a police officer  and stab vests with official met markings dont come cheap !
