    Feels a bit like Cambodia 1975, Government set on destroying all productive capability. In its stead we have useful stuff like Thursday evening worship and lockdowns. Woe betide anybody that tries economic activity.
    Then it was the kids in charge now its those with comorbidities and senile dementia. You can't make this shit up.

    Lost 10lbs since start of lockdown. No running kids to/from school or sports/music training leaves me much more time for exercise and cooking healthier food.

    Yep we have let them down badly, not to mention depriving them of food after a 48 hour shift in the early days. We should have known our place and stayed at home.

    Anyone adopting from abroad a child with clear medical needs should be required to post a massive bond with the government to fund the child's lifetime health care.
    And anyone who already has four kids of her own should simply be told: no you can't.

    nurses are feeling betrayed by the public because they clap on a Thursday and then head down to the beach at the weekend, people are still dying of the virus

    crashmonitor reacted to Virgil Caine in Pandemic coming? - Coronavirus April / May 2020 (Part 3)   
    The argument mentioned by the MSM at the beginning (which the media has conveniently forgotten) is that locking down too early risked large scale non compliance when people tired of it. That prediction seems to have largely been correct because 8 weeks is probably the most people can stand. The media argument that earlier lockdown would have save lives is purely hypothetical. It might have worked better but then again it might not. The path of the UK pandemic pretty much followed the path of that in Spain, Italy, France etc. Personally I suspect the UK figures only look worse because the U.K. government probably keeps better national statistics particularly for excess deaths. That is rather confirmed by reading studies of earlier flu pandemics where a lot of studies use British data because it is simply more accurate than a lot of countries.

    Did you see the final report out of Italy that 96% of all Covid fatalities had other health conditions..?
    It really does seem that the danger of this disease has been massively over estimated.
    Goes a long way to explain all the empty hospitals..

    crashmonitor reacted to Rowley in Pandemic coming? - Coronavirus April / May 2020 (Part 3)   
    My point was they can't seem to make their minds up what lockdown was for?
    Initially, I though (like you) it was to stop overwhelming hospitals (Save the NHS)
    Well, the NHS was saved. Hospitals weren't overwhelmed, in fact they were bloody empty, and respiratory consultants like my neighbour have effectively been "furloughed" on full pay (he has spent most of the last 2 months playing with his kids in the garden).
    Now, the MSM narrative is that lockdown came TOO LATE. If only we had locked earlier, we could have saved lives, but how? We would simply be facing bigger economic disaster from a longer lockdown, with no vaccine on the horizon. Anyone susceptible to the virus would still have found themselves in hospital at some point, and still received the BEST POSSIBLE attention and care the NHS could provide. And still died. Not that anyone would dare criticise our wonderful NHS, but to my knowledge no-one has died due to an over-run hospital (with doctors having to choose who lives / dies, who gets the last oxygen tank, who gets the next spare ventilator etc - does everyone remember all those dramatics just a few weeks ago?)

    Is that a 50 year old bloke with a low but possible chance of death shielding a 25 year old Fillipino woman whose chances of death are probably a tenth of yours.
    If so that would be the ultimate cuntish political correctness gone mad decision.

    It's a tricky one. The left and their media accomplices will want to blame the Tories for their 'mishandling' of the crisis and the subsequent ruination of the economy. But if they do that they have to avoid reference to all the other countries that did the same. They will also somehow have to gloss over the collapse of the EU in order to continue to show Brexit as a bad thing.
    It must be a tough job being a BBC journalist these days - so many plates to balance!

    I agree. Yes the left will moan about the excess deaths ( mainly geriatic) in the hand. Nobody will be to blame for the millions of lives ruined and the hundreds of thousands of premature deaths in the bush later.

    I would so like the government to have the courage to do this.
    Stop the grandmother's footsteps, phases A to Z of steady lockdown that we won't get through before the seasonality of viruses in temperate zones mean that we are into the inevitable seasonal rise starting in October.
