    Well, some scientists reckon that the virus is here to stay, and I'll be blowed if I'm going to wear an ineffective mask for the rest of my life.

    I'm double-jabbed and boostered - that's precaution enough.

    Face masks in shops and on public transport are back!

    I think this will prove to be an over-reaction.

    The objection here is more that babies make a lot of noise and you really don't need such distractions in a debating chamber.

    It is, but it’s been a long time coming. God, when I was a lad, we wore gloves on fireworks night and it was absolutely freezing!

    Yes, Mike had better watch out, it’s going for him first!

    Hopefully it’ll run out of steam a bit by the time it gets here!

    Or indeed in any place of work. Unless it’s the crèche.

    Just to clarify, what happened about last Christmas was that the Kent variant was discovered to be hugely more transmissible, and this upset the original plans for a ‘normal’ Christmas.

    They didn’t lie. It’s just that this…

    The listings for the week commencing 27 November have arrived and are set out in post #2 above.

    Potentially good dramas to look out for this week are ‘American Rust’ (Sunday) and Yellowjackets (Thursday), both on Sky Atlantic.

    For Chucky fans, a new series…

    We’ve been assured by the government that no-one is going to be forced to have a vaccination, Armitage. Hopefully, the way we have dealt with our vaccination programme will ensure that there will be no pressure to do so from the Opposition either.

    Yes, the possibility of long term effects worries me, too. I’ve still got my fingers crossed, having had the two jabs and the booster.

    Well, they should not be breast feeding in the House, surrounded by all her colleagues and on national TV. She should simply go to the crèche to do it. I don’t see what the problem is. She can listen to the proceedings of the House on her mobile phone.

    If these women use the crèche and want to visit their babies from time to time then let them visit in the crèche. Not in the House of Commons.

    Then they should work from home or have childcare provided on the premises, and that's the accommodation that should be made.

    Where else would they allow babies to be taken into the workplace? Ludicrous idea.

    Yes, they don't seem to be thinking this through very well, do they? If everyone is to get an EV, we will need charging points everywhere, particularly on residential streets and in town centres, and they need to be quick chargers.

    I've said it before and…

    I have mixed feelings about this. I certainly do believe that sentences should be much harsher for murder, but they shouldn't vary according to the person you murder. It should be the same - every life is precious and the derisory sentences handed out at…
