Follow the science Medical experts were asked if it is time to ease the lockdown. Allergists were in favor of scratching it, but Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves. Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but Neurologists thought the government had a lot of nerve. Obstetricians felt certain everyone was laboring under a misconception, while Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted. Many Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while Pediatricians said, "Oh, grow up!" Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while Radiologists could see right through it. Surgeons decided to wash their hands off the whole thing and pharmacists claimed it would be a bitter pill to swallow. Plastic Surgeons opined that this proposal would "put a whole new face on the matter." Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea. Anaesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and those lofty Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no. In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes.
In Ireland, it has been observed that the North has a higher death and infection rate than in the South. And, indeed, that of the Southern counties, (outside Dublin) it’s the border counties that have higher rates.

After Brexit, and the effects of Brexit on free movement, EU players under 18 won’t be able to sign for English clubs.
FIFA Regulation is there to protect players under 18. It bans international transfers of players under 18. There is presently an exemption for under 18s within the EU. That exemption ends for UK clubs after Brexit.
I presume the Premier League will look to negotiate a post Brexit exemption, especially given the finances involved and the hoarding of potential by the bigger clubs.
Would you like to see such an exemption continue after Brexit?
Could the delayed response to the pandemic be the undoing of BJ’s leadership?
Obviously given their majority, the Conservatives are safe until their term runs its course. But as the Covid surge comes, and the tragic number of dead so sadly increases, the NHS battles impossible odds, as the economy and society suffer, and newspaper scribes sharpen their pens, can he retain his leadership?
