The stupidity of some people
at 08:53 23 Sep 2020

"I won't support restrictions because voters don't like them and I ideologically object to government interference" (to paraphrase an MP)

FFS we're facing a virus which doesn't care about likes and dislikes, has no concept of ideology. It makes people seriously ill and even kills them. Full stop.

Unless people want that situation to perpetuate and us to have to keep taking restrictive measures every few months for years ahead, then action needs to be taken and those rules stuck to. By everybody.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg dead

US Supreme Court judge*. She was on the liberal side of things. This could allow Trump to install another conservative, altering the balance of the court just before the election.

McConnell, who blocked Obama's late attempt to install a new judge, has vowed to rush through Congressional approval for a Trump appointee, even with less than two months to go.



* Once appointed, they hold the job for life, unlike in the UK.

Backbench MP whingeing that the Government's position keeps changing on the basis of "the science" and how he wishes the scientists would make their minds up.

Scientist then comes on and explains patiently that the understanding of a disease we knew nothing about 9 months ago - and what steps to take in dealing with it - will naturally change as more information is gathered and analysed. That the whole basis of science is a constant process of developing, testing and amending/discarding theories. That if that were not the case, we'd still be believing the Sun revolved around the Earth.

He didn't actually call the MP a moron, but may as well have done.

Obviously the grasslands of Salisbury Plain are particularly good for preserving evidence of these things, but one wonders whether it was unique in scale, or if there is more to be found around places like Avebury (which is already known to be part of an elaborate complex of sites).

They appear to no longer be able to give the numbers of individuals tested (as opposed to the number of tests carried out), which they used to do. This is being blamed on 'technical difficulties'.

But it's also rather convenient.

And has messed up my spreadsheet.

pro- and anti-playing factions within League One and the wider EFL continues longer term - especially with continued indecision by the authorities - whether we'll end up with a breakaway group founding their own competition. As has happened in other sports (indeed, to some extent did with the foundation of the Premier League in 1992).
