  2. The normal flu vaccine does not give you immunity but if you do get the flu it will be less severe with the vaccine than without, or so i'm told. Suspect that will be the case they hope for with the covid vaccine. Then again it will depend on which version you get, bat or mink.........🦇...🤔

  3. Trump 74 years old, "tested' positive, spent a few days in isolation, never stopped workig and was back to full speed in a week . Valentino Rossi, 40 yr old Moto Grand Prix rider, tested positive last week, feels great but is obeying quarantine and will be racing again this weekend. paul Pogba, mid twenties, tested positive, no health issues, was back playing at full speed after a week. 97% of all covid19 positives recover with only a slight inconvenience. 86 % of all people who have died all had multiple major pre existing major health issues.

  4. You are, of course, correct Bill. You may, for completeness, add that perpetual motion violates the Second Law of Thermodynamics and you Cannae change the laws of Physics as I once heard said somewhere ... Batteries use reversible reactions by their very nature whilst combustion of Hydrocarbons or plain Hydrogen are irreversible without supplying an even larger amount of energy. For that reason it is inconceivable that batteries could ever approach the energy density by volume of chemical energy stores. Development will have to be in producing better and more efficient motors and dri

  5. Easy money as there a so "few" people about they can target areas to send their guys to to top up the coffers by spotting little known rules that carry a fine for breaking. Pity they can't do the same for those people who dump old beds, fridges,sofas and the like rather than take them to the local tip or arranging the council to collect. Next thing you know they will be fining campers for loitering within tent....

  6. sounds like our street davy. i am parked mostly outside my neighbour. mainly because the neighbour on the other side has a disabled space that covers my front door and has a people carrier that fits the space. most of the rest of the street also have people carriers, so although i have the smallest car in the street i have difficulty getting in and out if i don't leave enough space at the front , hence parking mostly outside the other neighbours house. there are 27 cars parked in our street, considering there are only twelve houses in the terrace that is a lot of cars. add electric

  7. Not going to belabor the point Asp, but this is what has happened in Democrat controlled States all over the country. It happened in Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan etc. Michigan is a perfect example of what happened in those places. Trump was ahead close to the end of voting to the point where he confidently declared the State won. Then suddenly the vote counters, all Democrats, miraculously 'found' 138,000 'lost' votes, no Republican witnesses. There were four people on the Presidential ballot in Michigan, Trump, Biden and two eco nuts. Again miraculously, all 138,000 'lost' votes were for

  8. This is just an historical statement. The election is a farce, but caused by one side only. The Democratic Party, has been taken over by anarchists and Marxist, who have been welcomed by the Democratic power hungry elite, who had no chance of victory on their ability or record. They have for four years, treated government in exactly the same way as Stalin, North Korea and China, the only difference being that they destroyed their opponents by mob rule and slander rather than outright assasination. They have thrown away the rule book and the Constitution and are completely without shame

  9. I’ve never been one to call for someone to lose their job, but for me, with the playing roster we have at our disposal, we have totally underperformed this year. When big games come along, like Salford in the Cup semis and last night, we just don’t perform. I’ve no idea why that is, but for me something must be wrong somewhere. I’ve thought for a while now that the team play as a bunch of individuals rather than as a cohesive unit, and Widdop and Austin just haven’t gelled. I think the time is right for a new coaching regime to be brought in, and we need to do it quickly to all

  10. They have to have somebody to blame and the government is an easy target. Joe public are the one's who buy their services so they will not blame them and of course they are not to blame themselves as they are serving the "public good" by keeping the public informed (or misinformed as the case may be). "The government are to blame" no matter what steps they take or don't take or what decisions they make. My one question to anybody who has a go at the measures taken as wrong is this..."What is your solution"? and it should be the question any time the current measures are criticis

  14. We’re all old grumpies here Obs and we could go on forever saying stuff like that so much so that I think we could probably write a book on it. 😉 But for the sake of debate, I wonder if we could think up anything that might be genuinely beneficial in helping to reduce the virus? I’m sure we all have our own thoughts on how things could be done better so what would anyone like to see??? I’ll start it off with… Anyone deliberately walking past a hand sanitiser should be refused entry. Simple but so many just can’t be bothered. Bill 😊

  15. I am not predicting doom but trying to help all of us analyse real and relevant LOCAL facts and then act like intelligent individuals. People understand and interpret graphs better than tables of numbers but they don't get to see them. Dead people are not an ongoing risk whatever their age. I don't dwell on that.

  16. I focus on cases for a good reason and don't focus on deaths. The value in this forum is sharing things with others, the important ability is to share facts because people need to be able to make their own minds up. There are no regular publications of the graph I showed in Warrington. The purpose of showing facts is, in present circumstances, to help people understand risk. If you think people should look after themselves they need an understanding of risk otherwise you are taking a paternalistic position in which to tell them what to do or effectively say they don't matter. Risk to all

  17. Once again you are obsessed with 'cases'. 98% of 'cases' recover, most with minimal inconvenience. If you feel the need, keep a check on deaths and more importantly on the circumstances of the deaths. If you find thousands of twenty year olds dying, then I'll jump on the panic wagon with you. More hospital facilities for the 2% may be required, that's a physical problem that can be solved with planning - field temporary hospitals if needed, but no reason to throw the world into a hand wringing panic spiral.

  18. Hi Bill, Hope you're good, good to hear from you. Don't get too close to me, you might catch something. About time this forum was livened up ! Here I am to save it ! This is a virus just like the flu and cold, people are going to catch it, the important thing is what happens if you do catch it. If you're a normal individual and you get the flu, you take normal medications and precautions and you get well. If you are a sick person with multiple medical problems and you get the flu, you will probably end up in hospital and may die. Sound familiar? IT IS NOT THE BUBONIC PL

  19. While I have every sympathy for the "no child should go hungry" campaigners, I don't think that expecting the government to sort it out is the right way. For a start I refuse to believe that every child in the country is in danger of going hungry so therefore a more targeted response is required, meaning that a local response is the way to go. The government has already given local government extra money to cover this sort of thing. Also local businesses having been stepping up and offering free meals. Central government has shown countless times how hopeless it is at doing anything constructi

  20. What Bill said about masks and less than 2m is correct. The Guidance tells us that where 2m is not possible we should stay at least 1m away and employ other mitigation such as face coverings. Visors, by the way, do not count as face coverings. The mitigation part is not usually explained well and it includes avoiding face to face situations. Face to back is not dangerous unless you are wearing a visor or closer than 1m. I simply took from what you wrote that you did not like the complete disregard by some of the guidelines because they did not offer you the common courtesy of waiting for

  21. What I said about viruses is true, over the centuries they all mutate (that is evolve) to be less deadly to their host or they find a different host. No sentience is required for evolution to work it is just random mutation and chance encounters.

  28. Fortunately, being in relatively good health, I’ve not had to visit the doctor too much but when I have, I’ve generally managed to get seen the same day. Either I must be the exception to the rule or my doctors so rubbish that he doesn’t have many patients. It doesn’t make any sense when you hear stories about there always being a delay in seeing a doctor. It might be understandable during certain conditions, but certainly not all the time. I’ve often thought that doctors have a bloody good job compared with other skilled people because the slower or less hours they work makes them more i

  29. Got a phone call a few months ago from my consultant, checking on how I was. I thanked him for having the decency to ring me, and said it's what the GPs should be doing. Apparently he wrote to my GP who now wants a phone interview. But this should have been standard for all GPs to check on their shielding patients - a 2min call goes a long way. 😷

  31. The vey notion of allowing returned ballot papers that have not been delivered to counting centres before the polls open is just contrary to natural justice and abhorrent to British eyes. Nevertheless that is what is permitted in the US. Indeed the USPS has said that it cannot guarantee that all of the papers will be delivered by 3pm local time today and when they turn up they will be counted. Since the propensity for democrat voters to use postal ballots is three times as high as republicans the problem is obvious and real. Technology isn't the problem it is that in democrat run states the sy

  35. The French pride themselves at being a secular society, which means that any religion is a private matter and has no place in the public space, something I profoundly agree with. Such religious ideas are imo a throwback to ignorant and superstitious times and should have no place or influence in a modern scientific based society. The French should review their open door attitude to immigration, which, as with us, is bringing these head cases into their midst. 😠

  38. As I know you realise the calls to do more come from the usual Labour politicians who are playing to their core supporters just to criticise the government. This is their way of showing politically responsible opposition in a national emergency. They just do not know what to do so this is what we get. A lot of people will remember their utterly selfish and unhelpful performance. Rashford is being helped by media figures take a look at order-order.

  43. I could agree more that it is crazy. The law is being misused since it is about protecting health and not preferring one kind of business against another. Tesco, or another large chain, could well take the Welsh Government to judicial review and win. With the English paying the compo of course!

Bins are still being empted, public transport still running, emergency services still responding etc. But perhaps a special thanks to all those involved in the supply chain that allows us to continue eat and drink, despite dire warnings from the Remoaners about the consequences of a no deal Brexit. Perhaps Boris can summon up a Churchillian "blood, sweat and tears" speech to reinforce the public's b
