Yes it's all laughable.
Has anyone read the exemptions of the foreign travel quarantine?

"crown servants or government contractors (Dominc Cummings?) returning to the United Kingdom who are either:
required to undertake policing or essential government work in the United Kingdom within 14 days of their arrival
have been undertaking policing or essential government work outside of the United Kingdom but are required to return temporarily, after which they will depart to conduct policing or essential government work outside the United Kingdom. Essential government work includes, in particular, work related to national security and immigration, the coronavirus disease and any other crisis response, and international negotiations"

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

There's been a lot of talk about who predicted what and whether predicting something retrospectively counts as a valid prediction. Who knows?

All I know is that, if you rotate Sergeant Pepper by 180 degrees and look at the reflection, it clearly shows that Blake or the Beatles had some kind of prescience. Look how craftily George forms the 's' of virus using the clenched-fist sign-language key- the rest is pretty clear.


p.s. ignore the EXIF data. There's no way I just edited this in Photoshop cos I was bored.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

I’ve always considered myself able to look at any situation holistically, the press have behaved atrociously showing little regard for distancing and basically like vultures. Many up and down the country have broken lock down rules and not much of a story told. Cummings rightly or wrongly has to go I’m afraid, the public has been whipped up to a frenzy.

In the eyes of the public justice must be seen to be done. I do wonder though about real facts of the story, some are jumping on the bandwagon just because they can. The world of politics can be a cruel place, but you pays your money and you take your chances.

The drive to Barnard Castle has changed my view on this.

If his story is true, then driving for 30 miles when you suspect your eyesight might not be good enough to drive is unacceptable behaviour.

If his story is false, and he is using it to justify a journey in lockdown, then that, too, is unacceptable behaviour.

IMO the childcare justification could have been reasonable; if both parents had become seriously ill, placing him with immediate family has obvious advantages over placing him with strangers.

Given what's been reported, I'd say it's in the public interest for the police to conduct a proper investigation. Should he be charged or formally cautioned, then most certainly he should resign immediately.

We live in a country where everyone, regardless of position, is supposed to be regarded as innocent until proven guilty. The way the press have behaved shows an appaling lack of respect for that fundamental principle.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

We should have been tracking and tracing from the start. This will not only help isolate the virus, but also give us valuable data on how it transmits. The smartphone will show if we've been in close proximity to infected others, but even before this we could have gathered data on wheter it was transmitted by close contact or not.

It might be reasonably safe to be around others, as long as no-one coughs or sneezes, if transmission has mostly been by hugging and shaking hands etc. This data shoud be being gathered worldwide.


On another thought, how did so many in Africa get it? On the telly there are stories of so many poor people needing help, yet none of those will have been jetting around the world on holiday or business. Was the disease caried to them by their aid workers?

there have been threats of fines all through lockdown but it didn't stop some carrying on like nothing was happening and no action taken.
