    Sir Keir Starmer...

    The new Labour Party leader, the 'socialist' Sir Keir Starmer yesterday, in his first words as Labour leader, said that he wouldn't oppose the Government for opposition's sake and that he'd only offer constructive criticism... well, it didn't last long. Already he's saying how awful the...

    'Sticky Threads' - a home of their own...?

    Opening the Agricultural Threads section one keeps finding ever-more 'stickies'. Now - and I know that this may seem somewhat counterintuitive - but I'm guessing that most people now scroll straight past them, ignoring them as they head for stuff more relevant to them. This being so, surely...

    Tobacco...

    Well, I used to grow the stuff in Zim, and have never smoked it, always knowing how awful it was for the health, lungs especially, until now... Did anyone else see the feature on BBC News about B.A.T.s medical research department - yes, you did read that correctly - claiming to have a working...

    Good news: new CPAP for mass production, 1000 per day

    Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machines mean that many patients won't need to go on to use a ventilator. Mercedes F1 and UCL engineers have developed a new, more efficient, simpler and easy to produce machine. :) https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-52087002

    The 'How stupid a thing can you write and yet an idiot somewhere will still believe it?' thread...

    Now that even tractors are getting stopped it is clear that I've been blind to the reality of this situation and it has got utterly out of hand. We are going to see a total breakdown of law and order, there will be martial law and rationing before we know it. People will no longer keep off the...

    Dyson...

    A lot of people on here have written against Dyson, with regard to farm buying and moving some jobs overseas (despite creating even more over here), some of it with justification. However... He's just committed to deliver 11000 ventilators to the UK in April and to have another 4000 ready for...

    Media coverage...

    Are they stoking up public concern, getting right or not doing enough? (mods feel free to add a poll, I can't see how to...)

    Where is he?

    Some good news, a really important graph

    Below is a simple graph. The really, really good news is the disparity between the two curves. Clearly the red line is rising but, hopefully, if the public follow government advice, this difference will remain. The effect of social distancing and other measures will not have come into effect in...

    The CLEAREST HINDSIGHT thread

    First example… I've just seen the Green and ever-self-righteous Caroline Lucas saying that: 'We've known for many weeks we would need widescale testing and the Government hasn't done enough.' A fairly thorough internet search can't reveal any evidence of Ms Lucas calling for this many weeks...

    The PANIC! thread...

    Seeing as some seem to feel the need to PANIC, a lot, how about a thread dedicated solely to that purpose? Feel free to put scare stories, misinformation, hyperbole and ill-informed worries on here - hopefully that will free up the rest of this section, and TFF as a whole, from the crap being...

    Mods, why has Politics gone?

    I can see the sense in having a Covid-19 section, and even separating Brexit and Politics now, but not the sense in moving Politics to conjoin with Covid-19 in a new section. Anyway, surely they should both be in 'Extras'.

    John McDonnell

    Is a c^nt, plain and simple. He has been mouthing off today trying to make political capital out of public fear in re the coronavirus. This isn't and must not be a party political mater, the government have acted and are acting on the advice of the CMO, CSA and the BoE, all of which have said...

    Small amount of old-style Spring wheat seed - where to get?

    My oldest boy has set his head to growing some wheat; we are in lamb and beef, so we don't have any kit for arable and this is going to be an allotment sized patch - hopefully once. I know SFA about arable and have had nothing to do with any such crops in this country for over thirty years, in...

    Euphemisms

    Being rather tired of the liberal-left thought police telling everyone else what to think and say, how about a list of euphemisms that people find most irritating? Liberal-lefties are welcome to comment too, I'm sure they have their own dislikes, such as 'patriot' in place of 'racist'. Here are...

    Spitting Image to return...

    Maybe it should have been left after doing a cracking job in its heyday, but I guess it will be worth a watch at least once. Even if it's only half as good as the original it will still be funny - painful viewing for all politicians and celebs. :D...

    US Election 2020, Democrats: Biden or Sanders

    I prefer Sanders, I think he is genuine and has the mental capacity for the job if elected. I don't think Biden is genuine - he's a receipted liar - and am certain that he hasn't the ability to hold the office of President well. Sanders would batter Trump in debates, Biden will probably not...

    Sheep hayrack on wheels (IAE probably)

    I'm utterly p!ssed off with the amount of hay my ewes are wasting and am now considering wheeled hayracks. Quite apart form the waste of feed, it's bl**dy annoying having to clear up the stuff. I've been using ring feeders because it's just easier to put a bale out for a given number of ewes...

    Veganism & Coronavirus (and others too)

    There is an awful lot of 'fake news' around at the moment, some hailing from Russia, some Iran and - rather predictably - some from China, and elsewhere too of course. So take the following with that in mind, pending confirmation from more reliable independently verifiable sources and credible...
