Re: Current Events/News

How is the rule of 6 tightening restrictions anyway? We’ve replaced two households and two vectors with up to six people from different households and a possible 6 vectors. Madness. I’m still hung up on this. Just how many different groups of six do you think I could see in a day? 😀 You've seen the...

Re: Current Events/News

Well I know that you've been appear to be trying to dispute a study suggesting that more people will die as a result of a full widespread lockdown than if we had tried to implement a demographically targeted one, and then made a very poor and misrepresentative analogy about safety barriers to back y...

Re: Current Events/News

It's quite obvious why there's a disproportionate increase in coronavirus cases in the north compared to London: when nobody had it in the north we locked down along with London. The number of people catching it in London was way way way higher than reported, as studies that suggest ~80% of people ...

Re: Current Events/News

Nah. It's much much simpler and less involved and frankly less interesting. If you do some stuff to mitigate something and then stop doing it while the something is still there, the mitigation ends. Hardly shocking news. I think you're being deliberately obtuse, Eth. Your analogy would apply quite ...

Re: Current Events/News

Like blaming a car crash on safety barriers... clever. No, not at all Rob. The proposal for having a targeted lockdown for those vulnerable is more akin to having laws that mean it's illegal to drive whilst drunk, or without having passed the requisite test for a license. The lockdown in this situa...

Re: Current Events/News

It's easier if you just shoot everyone who tests positive. Then burn them.

Re: Current Events/News

And the current testing is 5x more likely to return positive, result than March/April, the percentage of positive tests that result in hospitalisation dropped from ~80% to <10%. The fear over a second wave is unfounded; it's based on the Spanish Flu where the flu virus mutated and resulted in a more...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-54315320 Brady's amendment has the numbers, will it get selected though? Eth, despite the leanings of that article, there are a huge amount of civil liberties being eroded during this period. As stated by Bercow in the above article, 50 laws with criminal penalties with...

What happened to Holtby is because there was no poll.
Sorry, the game had already started and there was no game thread. Based on the lack of responses, it appears there wasn’t much interest, anyway.
Some fairly life changing shit going on innit. Distracting! ;)
