Children, please! :lol: What's all this squabbling about? I'm sure it's pretty hard to accurately model the disease's spread, who knows what variables are at play. Unless I'm correct in my suspicions that this is a New World Order plot, it's safe to assume the measures taken are due to the deadly potential of this virus, and so I think it's reasonable to assume that at its worst there may well be thousands dying every day. Nobody wants that and let's pray it doesn't materialise. Why argue about it, and insult each other?

Mainly because there no footie on and people like Oaky who stick their heads up.........................need shooting

To be fair, they have a point.

The world doesn't have infinite resources. I think this century we'll start to see resource wars, famines and more pandemics, unfortunately.

Just when you thought people could not get any more stupid, there are videos on Youtube and something called TikTok showing people taking part in a new public toilet bowl licking challenge.

No idea if this is fake or not but it's so brainless I actually can't stop laughing. 

Just why would ANYONE think that funny? bizzare.

So the Scottish government is setting up its own expert group which they say may provide different advice from the UK government. Just what we need at a time where national unity is so important. They've hardly managed to work with the UK government for a week without sliding into the our coronavirus is different from your coronavirus. Pathetic.

Yep and the heroes on the oil rigs and the refineries, Undertakers and the private ambulance drivers that take away the dead bodies.

Then you've got all their supply chain. And that's before you look at the factory workers and engineering plant companies that have responded to the governments call to manufacture respirators despite that not being their main business. 

There is literally an army of millions of essential workers in the UK at the moment that aren't getting a round of applause when they leave their houses; who aren't getting any praise on social media and who - to their credit - don't expect any either. Yet without them doctors and nurses couldn't begin to do their job, the supermarkets would be completely empty, our streets would be muck ridden with sewage being backed up, and where rubbish was blown everywhere from the overflowing bins. 

Not everyone should work from home. 

well said, nice to see you in sensible mode :)

They have already been giving different advice.

I agree it's not helping, although, on a personal note, I'm more inclined to agree with the Scottish advice. 

PS This isn't in anyway a political reason.

I did some quick calculations once on this for a bit of fun years ago.

I think that you could fit all people into an area of about 30 square miles assuming each human is about 1 metre wide and half a metre deep..

There are plenty of resources to go around everyone if there was a will to do it. It's inequality in that sense which causes most of the problems.

Yes, because that is a priority right now.

Are you trying to be as stupid as jaybee?

Honestly, a national emergency not seen since the two wars and we have people wittering on about shite like bumpy roads and Greggs being shut. :lol:

It's unhelpful and inappropriate to be chucking around words like "heroes" when you are describing exceptionally well paid members of staff.

Most of the people who are holding the country together right now are those who are paid the least and treated with disrespect by society - cleaners, those involved in food production and delivery etc.

When this is all done and dusted these people don't need to be patronised by applause. They need to be paid a wage which reflects their importance to the nation.

I'm hugely hopeful that this group of workers can find some way of ensuring that happens once this is finished.

Just re-did the numbers.

7 billion people times 1 metre times 0.5 metres is 3.5 billion square metres. That's 59km by 59km which is near as damn it 36 miles by 36 miles.

So not 30 square miles but you could certainly fit everyone into a surprisingly small area.

You'd need a lot of toilets though..... :lol:

Image may contain: 2 people, possible text that says 'Self employed people declaring their earnings to HMRC Self employed people getting 80% of what they've earned from HMRC'

Yep. And a lot of self employed people are about to find out the downside of taking cash in hand and not declaring it.

As for those taking dividends, they might be OK as those attract tax anyway.

It's often been said that the world's population could stand together on the Isle of Man. Why they would want to do that is beyond me.
