  1. Hopefully the Morrison’s shopping trip scandal can be resolved with Ayrshire Saint getting issued with a fine by his wife
  2. The online hard man strikes again It’s ironic that someone who criticises the government for not reacting enough is now condoning people breaking the rules Happy to lockdown everyone else but happy to put lives at risk yourself, eh?
  3. On the contrary, I’m pointing out the hypocrisy of those who want the police state but don’t want to follow the rules themselves And worse, use the situation to their own advantage
  4. Don’t be so harsh on yourself
  5. ^^^^^ condoning unnecessary shopping trips that put lives at risk and police officers abusing their position to use shopping times clearly set aside for NHS workers.
  6. As I said earlier in this thread, the ones who are shouting loudest for everyone else to be locked appear to be be happy going around doing whatever they want [emoji35] In the midst of this fascist police state it is indeed worrying that serving police officers and their partners are using their position to put lives at risk and jump supermarket queues.
  7. Looking at Morrison’s own website it says that they have a shopping hour from 7am to 8am for people with an NHS card Not only does it appear that Ayrshire Saint endangered lives by doubling up on an unnecessary shopping trip and jumped the queue, even more worryingly, it appears that his wife, a serving police officer, used her warrant card to jump the queue as well.
  8. Why did he feel the need to join his wife on the shopping trip at all? Why double up on the number of people in the supermarket?
  9. No lockdown in Sweden so far, although that may change soon due to pressure. Bars and restaurants open and the Swedish government bringing in measures to protect the vulnerable whilst trusting the people to act responsibly. Similar stats per capita as Denmark so far. Their government will no doubt cave into the pressure to lockdown soon. Politicians will be scared of the backlash if they are proved wrong.
  10. Before you go, are you not going to tell us why you put lives at risk on an unnecessary shopping trip and why you used your wife’s warrant card to jump a supermarket queue?
  11. As he’s apparently got me on ignore, I’m not sure how he manages to read my posts that no-one has quoted? [emoji848] As for hoping for as low a death toll as possible, then yes, I’m guilty as charged. It’s the folk that are hoping for a higher death toll and who are gleefully posting about the numbers of who have died that is worrying.
  12. Oh dear. It’s a bit too early to be starting on the cheap wine surely?
  13. Don’t be so harsh on yourself
  14. Why did you feel the need to join your wife on this shopping trip? And why did you use her card to jump the queue? You were bumping your gums about other folk not doing essential work a couple of days ago and yet here you are going on a needless shopping trip, increasing the risk to shop workers and fellow shoppers and jumping queues.
  15. The guy who wrote this must have read TPAFTWAT’s drivel These are interest groups that are never satisfied with the government’s response to Covid-19 because they are interest groups completely unconcerned with Covid-19 itself and its impact on public health – and instead – concerned only with how they can generate and leverage public hysteria to advance their entirely unrelated and self-serving political agenda. Again, this is done with complete indifference to the damage being done to society by doing so.
  16. Stanford Health Policy's Eran Bendavid and Jay Bhattacharya write in this Wall Street Journal editorial that current estimates about the COVID-19 fatality rate may be too high by orders of magnitude. "If it’s true that the novel coronavirus would kill millions without shelter-in-place orders and quarantines, then the extraordinary measures being carried out in cities and states around the country are surely justified. But there’s little evidence to confirm that premise—and projections of the death toll could plausibly be orders of magnitude too high. "Fear of Covid-19 is based on its high estimated case fatality rate — 2% to 4% of people with confirmed Covid-19 have died, according to the World Health Organization and others. So if 100 million Americans ultimately get the disease, 2 million to 4 million could die. We believe that estimate is deeply flawed. The true fatality rate is the portion of those infected who die, not the deaths from identified positive cases." "The latter rate is misleading because of selection bias in testing. The degree of bias is uncertainbecause available data are limited. But it could make the difference between an epidemic that kills 20,000 and one that kills 2 million. If the number of actual infections is much larger than the number of cases—orders of magnitude larger—then the true fatality rate is much lower as well. That’s not only plausible but likely based on what we know so far."
  17. Total worldwide excess deaths attributable to coronavirus currently sitting at less than a third of the excess deaths just in the UK in the winter of 2014/15, mostly caused by flu. And yet we’ve destroyed the world economy and imposed a fascist police state,
  18. But they haven’t all been ill for 5 weeks before dying. This shows your level of ignorance But please keep posting. Your unintentional comedy is amusing.
  19. The thing is, all this tells us is a number of people who have died who had coronavirus As Neil Ferguson stated, two thirds would have died anyway And were the ‘people who would have died anyway’ all getting tested for coronavirus a couple of days ago or last week? What the increase in the number of people who need critical care is what we need to know. And to put these deaths into perspective, there were 473 excess deaths per day in the winter of 2014/15, mostly attributable to the flu. 516 excess deaths per day in the winter of 1999/2000 And this isn’t the total number of deaths attributable the flu, just the number in excess of the normal average Pneumonia was the underlying cause of nearly 20% of these deaths and a contributing factor in many more
  20. Indeed. Guy gets in his car, drives to the middle of nowhere and goes for a walk. And the Police use resources to do this. Who knows where this fascist police state is taking us next
  21. 18 days into their lockdown and a record number of people dying with a positive coronavirus test The lockdown clearly isn’t working and may even have exacerbated the spread
  22. Our total number of people who have died and been tested positive for coronoavirus currently stands under 60% of where Italy were 2 weeks ago, as it has done for the past 3 days. It’ll be over 200 by Monday and approaching 400 per day by next Friday at that rate
  23. A shocking level of glee detected in this post
  24. Should it turn out that the epidemic wanes before long, there will be a queue of people wanting to take credit for this. And we can be damned sure draconian measures will be applied again next time. But remember the joke about tigers. “Why do you blow the horn?” “To keep the tigers away.” “But there are no tigers here.” “There you see!”
  25. We can quibble over the terminology but the fact is that we’re in a fascist police state that is printing money to line the pockets of the rich
