The Lord is on the money, we are asking for our freedoms to be taken from us and after reading so much of Russia lately, it chills me just how eager people are to grass up their neighbours and are actively encouraged to do so.....None of this is going to end well......Either get a virus that kills all of us, or just get the fuck on with life, as I am not taking well to the paranoia some class A fucking idiots are showing and those with terror on their faces because you go near them, I have moved from laughing at them to just wanting to twat them now.

I cycled to our local supermarket today and as l reached a junction a woman on the foot way stopped to let me exit the junction. Instead of crossing the road l turned right onto the corner of the footway to take a short cut for a short distance along the path. Naughty l know, but the street was almost deserted and the path was particularly wide there, but still kept 2 metres from the woman as l passed her. She lept to one side and shouted FFS out loud! :roll: What exactly am l emitting that makes 1.95 metres so dangerous to her space? I was wearing my cycling pollution mask to avoid hay fever as much as anyone else’s breath. ;)

If she`s a hefty lass you only have to keep 1.5 metres from her :idea:

If you had to sacrifice the population of just one city to get rid of this virus ... Which city would you choose?



and why Bradford?

That’s one point of view, but had we acted sooner and had more effective controls at the start we wouldn’t have needed such draconian measures. Singapore and New Zealand in particular. South Korea didn’t even impose a lock down. As for the UK? apart from the generally sensible population where l live there are a lot of dummies who l wouldn’t say held much critical faculty and given any excuse would run a mock! :roll:

I doubt that our own government have any aspirations towards a police state. They are made up of individuals who are too self centred, weak and disorganised themselves. Boris just stands out for having a bit more character and for being just a little too ‘clever’ for his own good! ;)

His point of view was based mainly in the legality of the current situation & the powers given to Police to enforce what are in actual fact recommendations (not law).

True! ;)

A friend was giving us the low down in S.A. They haven’t had it bad yet, but the fear is what happens when it reaches the ‘townships’. :?

The chances of catching your death may be low for many of us, but........The virus may not be as dangerous if there was more testing so that more people knew who was spreading it and if everyone followed distancing advice. The biggest danger is that we just don’t know and are unlikely to know until the pandemic blows over and the academics can get their teeth into the statistics. Should keep them busy for a few years! ;)

There are some interesting articles online about infection and mortality trends. The sad thing is that deaths of positively tested as infected is now the only indicator, but death rate reporting is inconsistent between some countries. :roll: I just read today that deaths in care homes have not been reported or included! :?

Scotland have recently started telling us about Total numbers provided by ONS

My father in law has suspected Covid 19 & so does most of his floor in the home in Sheffield.
No testing so no reporting.
The scientific approach tells us nothing about how many people have it & at present the Government are purely managing the numbers so the NHS doesn't get overwhelmed.
As far as the pandemic blowing over Edd, just how do you expect that's going to happen?
How come the UK has 3 times as many deaths as China when we knew it was coming?
It's a real mess.
