Surely on behalf of Greater Manchester he should just register a limited company in the Cayman Islands, stick one of those local tory MPs on the board, and by lunchtime he'd have £300 million of PPE contracts?

Nice genetics study on when COVID was imported in to the UK
at 12:39 15 Oct 2020

Think this was been discussed a fair bit on here, re the possibility of people having the virus pre-christmas etc. This analysis shows that not to be possible, unless there was in importation event and community transmission which then died out, which is extremely unlikely.

You can also see further down the thread where the virus was imported from.

Depressing stuff

Obviously this should read "Me and Dom are a threat to the integrity of the UK" or "Brexit is a threat to the integrity of the UK".

Our future really all depends on whether there's anything at all that might make our rump of radicalised English patriots think again about what's going on, I guess. Great.

Genuine question about the 6 people thing
at 16:58 9 Sep 2020

About a week ago there was a big push to get people back to offices to save e.g. sandwich shops - is it now the case that we should be avoiding offices if there's more than 6 people in them?

Edwards, for example, has had recurring groin problems for a number of years, so if he's got something up with his groin now, then surely it isn't just a case of 'see how it is in the morning.'

The fact that
at 13:34 29 Aug 2020

Huws, Nolan, Judge and McGavin are all starting in the same 11 (regardless of whether it's a friendly or not) suggests that Lambert hasn't really learnt what went wrong in a lot of our games last season.

Whether or not you think those players have got enough quality or not, playing four midfielders who want to get their foot on their ball in comfortable positions, but don't like running forward (with or without the ball) results in an imbalanced team, poor options for those players when they do look up, and makes it really difficult to retain posession and control the game.

Nice article on Stuart Broad
at 20:06 25 Jul 2020

https://www.theguardian.com/sport/blog/2020/jul/25/stuart-broad-bat-england-west

Been an enormously underrated cricketer for England, considering he's going to end up as at least the 6th highest wicket taker in tests, and a better batsman than anyone ahead of him in the wickets column.

The SAGE / Government dispute
at 08:35 17 Jul 2020

that is bubbling up is pretty mind-boggling - Apparently SAGE decided a full lockdown was needed on the 13th March, but didn't tell the government until the 16th March.

Then for the next week they didn't speak up and let anyone know they'd come to this conclusion (it's basically come to light now), while lots of other epidemiologists who were arguing that the delay going in to lockdown was going to cost thousands of lives were being shouted down by the 'following the science' crowd.

Meanwhile, Matt Hancock is now saying that the lockdown started on the 16th March.
