The assistant replies "ammonia cleaner"

Paralysis through analysis


politics undermining scientific advice and common sense.
Scientific advice has been politically-edited prior to public release, in my opinion.

Here is anther take on Government approach to schools

(link to BBC website)

[Link]

Many schools across the UK will not be able to remain open past the end of the week, says a head teachers' leader.

ASCL general secretary Geoff Barton said experienced head teachers in large schools were saying they would struggle to stay up and running past Friday.

It comes after teaching unions spoke of the "intolerable pressure" of staying open as more and more staff get sick.

The government's chief scientific adviser has reiterated that schools will remain open for now.

But Sir Patrick Vallance, speaking to MPs at a hearing on Tuesday afternoon, said school closures were still "on the table", as one of the measures that could be used to fight the virus.

At his press conference on Tuesday afternoon, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said school closures were under "continuous review".

You could say it's a NO-BRAINER decision, but that would be over-estimating the capabilities of the UK leadership.

You get the leader you deserve. As soon as the older 70’s knew they’d have to social distance themselves the supermarkets emptied of everything, including alcohol.

Most pensioners I know couldn't afford to clear supermarket shelves...... I wonder how so many 'corner shops' have limitless stocks of toilet paper?

I will not be surprised if pubs and restaurants etc etc are instructed to close.

That's a great idea. Let's close all the schools and lose three quarters of the country's nurses who would have to stay at home to look after them

I must be the one going mad (and not all the world and its scientific experts with their prediction models).
Has anyone tried to work out what the HUMAN cost will be after this is all over, and compared it to the HUMAN cost if we had stuck to the "herd" option?
How many people will now lose their jobs, end up with nothing, have severe mental issues, die early because they've had to wait for so-called routine operations, topped themselves because they can no longer face their troubles etc. etc.?
And what will the authorities do when the virus returns, perhaps in a slightly modified form, with no vaccination and few people with any kind of built-up resistance to the current virus?
How many of the people who have died or will die from this virus would have died soon anyway from their underlying medical conditions? How many die from flu/pneumonia every year?
I have to confess I don't know the answer to these questions, But I'm not convinced that the new regime in this country is the better option. By all means we must protect the vulnerable but it shouldn't mean that the country should be shut down for the remaining 99%+ who will survive the virus.
Perhaps I've opened a can of worms in saying all this!

My thoughts exactly. I was in our local Asda at midnight last night, and they had just put out a load of toilet rolls. Within minutes they were wiped-out by a large group of Asians. I live in a part of Kent that doesn't have a large population of Asians so am expecting to see Asda 'Shades' bog roll for sale in the local corner shops at £20 a pack.

Barsterds.

Yep, you’ll find the better off pensioners in Sainsbury’s with the men making sure they get to the alcohol aisle sweeping up dozens of bottles of wine and 4 packs of beer. Unless you’re well over 80 you have very little memory or experience of the war and pulling together. Rationing of course continued until 1952 wasn’t it, but that was forced and then the generation of starting to be able to do and have what they wanted started from there.

I’m not picking on one particular age group because I’ve seen some embarrassing things, and of course your self raising flour angry shopper with a trolley filled with toilet roll.

With few people working and able to get to the shops at opening times it’s anyone’s guess when this calms down.

All this sitting around eating into large supplies of food and drink is going to do wonders for health and the NHS.
