They're at 3175 dead now. 135 yesterday. Would be nearly 800 pro rata in the uk

I get the feeling that in the bigger picture and longer story of this virus that weíll be battling with it longer than Sweden and a lot of other countries. I donít think thatíll be down to the government alone but also the huge number of arrogant, ignorant or think people we have in this country.

There are so many people making up their own rules or canít wait a few days for rule announcements. You then get people who want to do the same, just like in panic buying bog roll and pasta. Itís going to start coming down to looking after yourself and your own, let the rest take the virus home after socialising and spread it around their friends and families and just leave them to it and try to steer clear of them for as long as possible.

Both Stirling and Willo were advocates of "a lot of fuss about nothing" with the virus, yet both have disappeared completely from the site.

Does anyone know if they're alright, or are they just isolating in case they catch anything from it that's a bit leftie?

 


Living down here does have some advantages. At least you can see them cry.

Someone I know said it was a load of fuss over nothing before we locked down and then 4-6 weeks later criticised Trump for not taking it seriously or acting sooner etc etc etc.

I originally thought Sterling had decided to make better use of his time just as another repetitive and obsessed government bashing poster joined in. He possibly also got bored of arguing against a lockdown. But I then started to be concerned maybe something serious. But heís decided on isolating himself so doubtful.

Yes I think we should be careful as neither wlllo nor Stirling are spring chickens.

I am not going to comment on willo but seem to recall Stirlings opinion was more nuanced than all fuss and nonsense. Didn't he express admirable concern that the balance had shifted wholly to protecting the vulnerable at the cost of the economy.

Stirlingsays will be OK as you can't catch coronavirus from a keyboard and I spotted that Willo hadn't been around a few days ago so looked for him on the BBS and Trolley was actually online when I checked so he's OK too

Yesterday was the 75th anniversary of VE day which was a time when everyone looked after each other and many of us have been celebrating yet we now seem to live in a time of f*** you I'm alright

Stirling said we shouldnít be in lockdown and just old and vulnerable should be isolated. I agree with him, but after the cases and deaths and R number have reduced to a level it wonít quickly escalate again. I think thatís the only way the government can be confident of no 2nd spike, because they canít be confident. They can only minimise their chance.

Rose tinted view of the 1940s. Corruption and privateering rife throughout the war and thereafter The rot was present in every aspect of society and most looked after number one. And god forbid if you were a bit foreign.

The only difference is the young cared more for older relatives
