    FFS Stu, why? I did think you had a lot of "relations" in key positions, now that's looking like you made it up. Never mind, I'm just off the phone to the queen, she's fine.

  2. I'm assuming they are calling them Nightingale after Florence on the basis of them being like the field hospitals from the Crimea war where Florence had what can only be described as a mare. Hope they aren't expecting the level of success she had there.

    This was on the BBC website the other day, no matter how you cut it, it’s bad news all round What about the impact of the lockdown? The lockdown, itself, however could cost lives. Prof Robert Dinwall, from Nottingham Trent University, says "the collateral damage to society and the economy" could include: mental health problems and suicides linked to self-isolation heart problems from lack of activity the impact on health from increased unemployment and reduced living standards Others have also pointed to the health cost from steps such as delaying routine operations and cancer screening. Meanwhile, University of Bristol researchers say the benefit of a long-term lockdown in reducing premature deaths could be outweighed by the lost life expectancy from a prolonged economic dip. And the tipping point, they say, is a 6.4% decline in the size of the economy - on a par with what happened following the 2008 financial crash. It would see a loss of three months of life on average across the population because of factors from declining living standards to poorer health care.

  6. As one such poster on here, as you describe... I am terrified by what you have revealed!!! Thank you! I can take some succour on the article's suggestions to mitigate the impact 5G will have on me. Cos... Luckily I am sometimes a fruitcake kinda Hippy. Spirulina, Wheat Grass, Vitamin C, and similar supplements are consumable forms of sunlight, which will always improve our health and raise our vibrations. Yoga, meditation, chanting, mantras and other forms of prayer can also be beneficial in protecting our life-energies. While fear can weaken our electromagnetic fields, love, intimacy and social vulnerability can strengthen them. The most important thing we can do is focus on improving our health, states of mind and exposure to nature. We always have control of our future, even if the general public is headed in another direction. Here are a few ideas to give you a fighting chance: Do not live near a cell tower or mini station. Purchase an EMF shield, and continue to measure the levels of radiation within 100 feet of your home. Eat healthily and take immune-boosting supplements. Spend lots of time in the forest. Refrain from using your cell phone for long periods, including never keeping your cell phone in your bedroom. When traveling with your cell phone, store it in an EMF protective bag. Consider purchasing some Orgonite, which reportedly scatters electromagnetic fields and turns them into beneficial ones. Dr. Wilhelm Reich developed this unique composite. Continually educate yourself about the wireless industry and the global government support of this insane endeavor. Remain strong, stay out of fear and continue to improve your vibration through positive thinking, forgiveness, and increased attention toward your mental, emotional and physical health. FFS!

    In the case of Coronovirus the percentage may be further reduced when it's decided that many didn't die OF the virus but WITH the virus.

    Everybody's immune system is different. Any virus could kill seemingly healthy people. The big thing about this virus appears to be that, if you put 10 people in a room with the flu virus, probably 8 will not get the flu. Put 10 people in with this virus it's likely 10 will succumb.

    A taser to their balls would be appropriate. We had 2 young females running riot in East Kilbride town centre cursing at security and threatening to lick windows. Would not listen and clear that we have no deterrents in society that garner any respect. Grinds my gears. I would fine the parents and maybe that would be more effective to those neds.

    The two thirds quote is from Neil Ferguson, so you’ll need to take up the indifference to human life with him His figure is a made up guess The Italian Health Institute confirmed that it was 88% in Italy according to their analysis And all of this is no difference from the involvement of flu in deaths. What is actually shameful is folk line you wishing a higher death total in order to score points on a football forum

  18. I see your point on this. Our club are guilty of milking the Paisley working class to death and also the middle class with illusions of grandeur (the Smisa premium membership, I am gritting my teeth here). Some supberb marketing has seen us (including me) buy shares, some pay for the wank wall and now we have fans paying for season tickets, Smisa memberships, 1877 memberships as well as the righteous costs for our fantastic supporters clubs to keep those buses running. It all adds up. Many of our faithful are young and as such not so high on the old career path. It is a lot of money. However these are unprecedented times so I wouldn't be so quick to roll out the high horse here. I do not want Agnes the cleaner (do we have a cleaner called Agnes, you see you the point), and Boab the brusher upper to end up devoid of much needed income. Our club for all it's faults is fantastic and we must see it endure. This is not a time for one upmanship. If one fan can give but a fiver and another can give a ton they are both as valuable as each fan could be making a sacrifice they can equally ill afford. So, if we need a fundraiser I am in and I will contribute what I can afford, in truth slightly more. That figure will be different for each of us but no less important. The man who lays out £1000 without noticing is not the same as the man who lays out £20 but has to sacrifice something, potentially from the shopping basket. The man who didn't notice will be celebrated and the latter taken for granted. Again don't start on the Smisa premium membership. I have been a poor man and I have been comfortable man and such schemes are for cunts. Anyway, unprecedented times, the teenager who gives a fiver is as bright a star (if not brighter) than Land Rover driving, golf jumper wearing gent who gives twenty times that. Lets see our club through this, we all need something to look forward to, we all need something to look forward to indeed. PS I have too many deceased friends who loved this club like I do to see it fail. So COYS

RAH bed slashed. More RAH car parking needed. School spending down. Council cuts. Cleaning up Renfrewshire. Scotland loses out on thousands of green jobs. Standing up for pubs. Standing up for Scotland Passengers. Standing up for Families. Also Standing up for Workers, Local Business, Communities, Students, Veterans and Pensioners. Reckon he needs to buy a sofa from dfs to avoid all this standing up he is doing

    Has there been any reliable data released regarding the percentage of deaths from no known/as yet undiscovered underlying conditions? A couple of articles I've read, indicate that as a result of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, the death rate for the aforementioned group was around 10%. Could help in working out just how virulent the current virus is.

    Coronavirus

    The areas that I've highlighted are hugely salient points. This lockdown is unprecedented, and, as such, there will have been no studies that can predict its effects on, say for example, cardiovascular health. The potential for a significant increase in deaths due to cardiovascular health deterioration as a result of someone working from home sitting on their arse for three months, who is unable to be active at work or attend a gym regularly, is clear and present. Of course people can go for a walk, as I try to do every day. That's not the same as being on your feet all day or attending a gym regularly. Others will have their exercise regime restricted by child care etc. Six months down the line if someone dies of cardiovascular disease, where the lockdown has been a contributing factor, then would it even be possible to ascertain whether the lockdown was a contributing factor? Similarly, the lockdown may be enough to cause further deterioration to the health of someone with specific mental health issues. Worst case scenario being an increase in suicides. Deaths from cardiovascular disease and suicides largely go unreported, and are often accepted as run of the mill, possibly due to pre-conceived, stereotypical views on the type of individual assumed to be most likely to succumb to these illnesses. There's also the possibility that they will increase gradually, so the general public probably wouldn't be aware that anything different was happening. For these reasons, I doubt we'll ever really be able to measure reliably the impact of the lockdown on overall health. As much as I agree with the principles behind the lockdown, I really, really hope that we haven't overreacted, based on inaccurate recording of data, and that we haven't created a ticking time bomb in the future. It's certainly food for thought.

    That percentage is probably much higher than reality as it is calculated on the number of KNOWN cases. As testing is still not taking place extensively it's highly likely there are far more who have, or have had, the virus.

    We are being issued with headed letter confirmation that we are essential workers. Apparently the police will be clamping down on driving unnecessarily. A step too far I think. If you're in your car you're self isolating anyway. Police stopping a car and getting close to the driver is, as far as I'm concerned, counterproductive.

    Agreed. The only real argument is that the government should have done more and sooner. Even now, planes are still flying into Heathrow from Madrid, Rome and New York, while the health secretary thinks it's ok to turn up at a press conference six days after being diagnosed. One rule for them and another for us?

  38. What is the club? What does it mean to you? Many would say that St. Mirren is a Paisley institution, founded in the Victorian era, back in 1877. It is a focal point for the community, where local people unite to support the team which represents their town, and the county of Renfrewshire. It has created a lot of fond memories for people, some indelible such as cup triumphs, wins against the Old Firm, promotions and magical nights such as the recent Motherwell cup game. Then there's the comaraderie, the friendships and bonding that comes from a mutual love of the team. The anticipation of a new season, the trip to the ground and seeing a sea of black and white, the songs, the displays. I fear this unprecedented crisis could harm the club. Who knows how long football will remain suspended? I have heard it suggested the lockdown could continue on and off for eighteen months! Let's hope that's wild speculation with no basis in reality, but then again isn't it best to be prepared? It will, hopefully, soon be owned by the community, and I think it must be preserved, whatever the cost. I have to assume that people who spend so much of their time on a forum dedicated to the discussion of St, Mirren care for the club, and are literally supporters of this cherished institution. Why else would they be here?

    The Scots have influenced modern society more than the state of Israel. We live in Gods country. Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God went missing for six days. Eventually, Gabriel the archangel found him, resting on the seventh day. He inquired of God, "Where have you been?" God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look Gabriel, look what I've made." Archangel Gabriel looked puzzled and said, "What is it?" "It's a planet", replied God, "and I've put LIFE on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance". "Balance?" inquired Gabriel, still confused. God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth. "For example, Northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth while Southern Europe is going to be poor; the Middle East over there will be a hot spot." "Over there I've placed a continent of white people and over there is a continent of black people" God continued, pointing to different countries. And over there, I call this place America. North America will be rich and powerful and cold, while South America will be poor, and hot and friendly. And the little spot in the middle is Central America which is a hot spot. Can you see the balance?" "Yes" said the Archangel, impressed by Gods work, then he pointed to a small country in Northern Europe, "What's that one?" "Ah" said God. "That's Scotland, the most glorious place on Earth. There are beautiful snow capped mountains, untouched rivers, streams and lochs of exquisite, timeless beauty. The people make a drink called Uisge Beatha or Whisky which means "The Water of Life". The people are good looking, intelligent and humorous and they're going to be found travelling the world. They'll be extremely sociable, hard-working and high-achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as warriors, engineers, inventors and pioneers. Gabriel gasped in wonder and admiration but then said "You said there will be BALANCE!" God replied wisely. "Wait until you see the bastards I'm putting next to them!".

  42. The fact that Yardley's goal against Morton wasn't filmed is both sad because I'd love to see it again & great because I'm adding on more players that he beat in that run every year. I think it's up to 15,438 players now. Seriously, what a brilliant goal by a brilliant player.

  43. Mallan's goal is superb and probably the best I've seen, albeit on video, but some of Ally McLeods in the early 70's were of similar style. Mazy runs and slotting the ball in the corner of the net were typical - particularly in the 4 he scored at Ibrox and I was there for that wonderful night to be a Saints fan! All the best to Buds for 2015 and our Saints Team.

  46. I was thinking about that one as well. Brian Hamilton chips a ball into Ian Ferguson, he flicks a header into McDowall's path and he hits a 20 yard volley. Think it was the same game that Campbell Money fumbled a cross into his own net. Some great strikes and team goals have been mentioned, and I also thought about the one at Ibrox in 87/88ish when Ian Cameron beat 3 and slipped the ball to Billy Davies, who fired a 25 yarder into the top corner. But Mallan's goal on Saturday is out on its own as a piece of individual brilliance.

  47. Yeah we mentioned this in the pub on Saturday. I'm certain it's the best Saints goal I've seen in 20 odd years. McLean and Carey's 40 odd yard digs were good, but not as good as Mallans. Sheer genius. And at such an important part of the game and of our season.
