Was Starmer breathalysed? Says it all about Sir Kneel. Left after exchanging details but before roads policing officers arrived, maybe to dodge being breathalysed. If that had been anyone else they would be charged with leaving the scene of an accident! Caring socialist. 😂😂 Well that's embarrassing icklepickle If someone was taken to hospital, does it really count s minor?

So he left before police arrived. I wonder why. Did he mistake the cyclist for Jeremy? 🤔 Ouch! Hope Jeremy is okay. Good to see Starmer in the drivers seat in control of something for once. Oh wait. He looks like a childmolesternearme As we say in France 'responsable mais pas coupable' 😎 Klutzen Cyclist was probably a racist tory/fascist who deserved it. Direct action comrades!

100 points for a cyclist!👍 Hope everyone is OK.

Quarantine for Covid contacts in England may be cut as criticism growsMove comes amid dissatisfaction with performance of test and trace system MichaelYeadon3 has done an amazing podcast explaining what the situation is. I urge everyone to listen in-full & share (it’s long but worth it). Then make up your own mind, research the points in it if you need to. The reason why quarantine is 14 days if you might have been exposed to the virus, is because it can take that long to get symptoms. You can become infectious at any point during that time, and tests during that time will not easily tell you if you are on the way to getting sick. well stupid is as stupid goes....
