The role of volunteers will be "absolutely crucial" in fighting coronavirus, says Boris Johnson.
1862 - sorry x 3 I remain baffled as to why you reside here if you hate it so much. It’s not the fault of Great Britain that you herald from a vertically challenged Nation that chooses to snack on bats. I’m betting that you could ‘do one’ right now? Am I getting warm? Removed

@1985 Antidote Well I won't thank him for not providing simple testing kits to the masses despite knowing this was coming since January. ---- The virus was only identified at the end of Dec.

1901 - cb Cheap shot? Not like you. Listen buddy, we’ve both been stinking up HYS for long enough now for you to know that I’m perfectly relaxed & hold no stupid angst about race, but I will oftimes defend my Country from those who habitually take every opportunity to trash Great Britain & its peoples on HYS, ie, the poster that I responded to.
@1946 omeg Listen buddy, we’ve both been stinking up HYS for long enough now for you to know that I’m perfectly relaxed & hold no stupid angst about race : I have to agree with that. I don't often agree with your comments, but generally find them amusing (laughing with you, not at you), and certainly never considered you a racist.

@1998 Assert ‘...certainly never considered you a racist.’ On the whole I agree. But then he shouldnt tell a person who is seemingly Chinese to go home to his short, bat eating country. Even if it is a ‘joke’
