The Thompson Brothers on Biden, the Vaccine and Jaguar F-Types

10 December 20 interview: LeftLion

Nottingham's most opinionated grocers on...

Christmas
We’ll be spending time with our sisters and their children, although it will probably involve waving at them through a window with a glass of champagne in our hand. And, of course, we’re very much looking forward to hearing the Queen’s speech. We’d like Santa to bring us a Jaguar F-Type and a four-door Aston Martin Rapide. We’ve been asking him for dream cars like this for several years, but he hasn’t delivered as yet, so we’re stuck with the delivery van for now. But you never know, this might be our lucky year. 

US Presidential Elections
Well, Biden won pretty easily in the end didn’t he? Although Mr Trump is a little bit controversial. He’s refused to concede the election still, hasn’t he? Didn’t Gordon Brown do that when Cameron won? He was waiting around in Downing Street trying to form a coalition with Nick Clegg that never happened. Although that was for three days, whereas this has been over three weeks now. It’s a pity the rest of the world doesn’t get to vote in the US Elections as it always affects us a lot too. 

Vaccine
It’s very good news. We are very much up for having a needle stuck in us as soon as possible. Although we probably won’t get it for ages as we’re old, but not that old. The common man in the street, like us, will probably be left right until the end. We’re very glad to hear that care homes will be getting it first though. Hopefully we’ll start to see an end to all this and have a happier 2021. 

We have a favour to ask…
