|Have you already had 'it'?|
at 18:36 24 Mar 2020
Makes you wonder. Me and her and the two poor kids who have to share our house have all been a bit rough over the last 10 or so days now. Started with the kids of course - cold-like symptoms, sore throat. Then I've had what can best be described as a dry cold for at least a week, bit achy, occasional flushes, bit tight chested and get knackered doing anything.
I assumed you'd really know if you got it, but there seem to be an increasing number of people testing positive who had mild or no symptoms.
Until they have a widely available antibody test, we'll never know I suppose (so good news from Hanc0ck tonight). That'll be a huge breakthrough because they could then start letting those with resistance back out to help others.

I know we don't have enough staff to operate them, but this seems a bit shoddy. Maybe previous administrations through the 00s didn't bother to address an known issue around ventilator capacity because they knew they wouldn't have the staff? Who knows.
Trump getting a kicking for similar too - both after saying that he didn't know about the Pandemic Unit he shut down (despite being on record explaining it - but we've done that), and now saying they were caught short and this is a completely unexpected event, despite his team being involved in earlier pandemic planning scenarios (thread):
People deserve better.

The board’s been much more pleasant and interesting lately, so I’m reluctant to post this. But why have people apparently switched off on what’s happening around Brexit?
Brexit has effectively disappeared, despite it not being “done”. Are people fed up, bored, thinking it’s “done”?
Just in the last couple of days we’ve had the following, but barely a mention about it:
- Govt saying they’ll pull out of European Arrest Warrant despite advice of people who know about such things
- Boris having a strop and saying he’ll take his toys away if the EU don’t give him what he wants (Canada++++++)
- Govt sating they don’t want close alignment on Erasmus or EU research programmes, screwing our world-class Unis
- Govt announcing 25% cut on farming subsidies, backtracking on promise to maintain EU levels of funding (Env Minister getting booed by farmers union audience as a result)
- A weird edict that Tory MPs and civil service can’t now use the term ‘no deal’, even though events are pointing towards there not being a deal...
And that’s just off the top of my head.
|Sajid Javid to issue ‘Brexit red tape challenge’ to public|
at 09:37 6 Feb 2020
"Chancellor Sajid Javid will use his Budget next month to launch a “Brexit red tape challenge”, inviting members of the public to propose ways in which Britain might diverge from the EU rule book."
Anyone feel like helping him out? There must be lots of specific rules people want to be shot of, given the level of support for Brexit....

And to think some people on here support this rubbish.
Edit - seeminlgy this is misleading. Althought the UK govt is advising our citizens, it's the Chinese rules that prevent anyone holding a Chinese passport to stay in China.

Only 1-0 against Lincoln is a disgrace. We’ve won the UEFA league, the FA Cup, been league champions. The bloke’s hopeless and needs to go.
Wasn’t that long ago that we were seeing comments like the above quite often. Funny old game innit? Chuffed that they’ve turned it around as it all went a bit pear shaped for a while, with the huge gaps between games exacerbated by overly zealous rotation.
The long-term future of Lambert and some of these players is still up for discussion, but they’re doing what they need to do this season and increasingly with style. Long may that continue
