    Don't want to go all Q and tinfoil hat but in the USA the Democrat party know that they are absolutely toast in the forthcoming elections. 
    Prolongation of the lockdown to the day after the election would be an absolute godsend for them for so many reasons. The problem they have though is how do they justify it if the rest of the world has opened back up. So I'm sure there are unseen pressures to keep it all in place.

    Half price prozzies in Darlington for the "Happy Hour"?

    eight reacted to Rave in Cummings for a lockout?   
    Again, no. The risk is only to those people who called for the lockdown to be introduced. I've not stuck to the lockdown rules 100%, but I never called for it to be imposed in the first place, and nor have I called for anyone breaking them to be subject to legal proceedings. So I am a lawbreaker, but not a hypocrite.
     
    I am genuinely struggling to see why this is apparently such a difficult concept to grasp.
    ...and so, following on from the above, people calling for Cummings are not throwing the first stone, they are returning the stones thrown at them by the government of which he is an integral part, who told them to isolate at home if they had or suspected they had the virus, on pain of arrest and sizeable financial penalties.

    I've been doing a new routine where I do 10 press ups and some yoga stretches on the hour every working hour. So that's 80 press ups a day and a lot of other stuff. It's done wonders for my back. The jobsworth council have also lifted the ban on swimming in the local river, so I'm in there most mornings. The change from shop-bought beer to home made wine (to lower my tax spend) seems to also have given me a slimmer waist.
    However, as someone else said, I'm getting increasingly annoyed with the attempts to spin out the crisis long after it's clearly over, if at all it ever existed. Particularly the 'new normal' societal change nonsense that some are trying to foist on us, and all the phone-monitoring rubbish.

    Look on the bright side. You could have been dragged off by the Casa Nostras by now.

    The attempts to drag this crisis out when it's been evident for weeks that it's all over bar (literally) the shouting - for now - is pissing me off more than anything.

    I had got into pretty good shape via daily CrossFit workouts. Body and mind suffering without them now. Concern about job security and economic impact over next few years starting to manifest. Should be in Sicily now for a family holiday. We are all getting hit with a double whammy of extra stress and no release mechanisms.

    I could agree with them position of not employing lifeguards.  I could agree with whatever strip-down or reduced service they eventually decide is possible.

    But this statement should have come out immediately the beaches opened, - advising the RNLI was unable to provide lifeguards, perhaps with the usual appeal for donations.   To come out after two people drowned and try to blame everyone except themselves is what I'm finding objectionable.

    I sort of agree with him - but only because of the paralysing nature of the overstated risk of Covid 19. Government needs to row back the rhetoric and allow everybody to take a more measured approach. Anybody obliged to behave "by the book" stands as much chance of drowning in discarded plastic protective equipment as in actual water.

    I've not noticed people dropping like flies, or an immense pile of corpses. In fact, neighbours are doing gardening.

    I would imagine that working as a health professional dealing with a condition where most of your established procedures and interventions have been shown to be useless must be pretty depressing. Obviously they don’t want to see more seriously ill cases because the truth is the NHS ICU stats show they have not been very successful in treating them. This fact is even more noticeable when you consider many of the most vulnerable individuals with the highest mortality rate have been left to die in care homes. At the end of this pandemic I hope the NHS performance compared to other countries care systems is going to be subjected to a proper review.

    Hence why we need to making hay right now, not in 3/4/5/6 months time when the thing is upon us again.

    All the research seems like unilateral projects, done separately between different hospitals, never mind countries. There seems to be very little collaborative effort and nothing at all has been learned from China, Italy or Spain.
