    The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. H.L.Mencken

  1. For all the disappointment of not winning any silverware this season (and what a strange season its been!) you can't ignore the fact that Wire finished in 3rd place only 2 points off the top. Onwards and upwards!!
  2. If they want to donate to foreign aid from their own bank accounts there's nothing stopping them.
  3. The government is trying to claim that the dramatic fall in the infection rate in Liverpool has been caused by the mass testing they put in place. Ignoring the fact that the fall n rates began before the mass testing started, can anyone explain how measuring something can change the rate of what you are measuring?
  4. We haven't had a Wuhan style lockdown here because we don't execute people and hide the evidence from the world like the Chinese Communist Party does. How do you know if the R number wouldn't have dropped without the lockdowns, i.e. if we had carried on and just enforced hygeine and social distancing better? We will never know. As for the crashing Jumbo jets analogy, in a normal day in this country the equivalent of THREE Jumbo jets full of people die. Yes, every day! Its just not reported on the same way that Covid is being reported, as if death was something that was unheard of until th
  5. Firstly are the ONS Covid 19 deaths with or from Covid 19? Secondly, in a normal year i.e. one without Covid 19 do you know what the fatality rates are for 65-74 year olds and over 75 year olds? I'm guessing that the fatality rates would be more or less the same. It should be obvious that the 99% recovery rate covers all age groups and is lower for old people than for the young and fit. The average age of Covid 19 deaths is over 80.
  6. Obs, it's also a fundamental fact of life that we all die and this virus has a better than 99% survival rate. So why are we killing off people who don't have the virus?
  7. I was thinking more in terms of the whole country Bill. Lockdowns obviously do not work, and these tiered lockdowns are just Parliament flailing about cluelessly and needing to be seen to be "doing something". I say Parliament because the whole lot of them are complicit.
  8. Lockdown 1 and 2 haven't worked so let's try lockdown 3 but call it tiered lockdowns instead. Crazy.
  9. Well that one certainly zoomed above your heads. I'll put on my Baggy Trousers and go back to Our House 🙄.
  10. According to statistics, the NHS has never been near to being "overwhelmed" and in fact bed occupancy rates, even in ICU, has in many cases been below average.
  11. Baroness Sugg has resigned over the Government cut to Foreign Aid. That's Madness! Surely One Step Beyond! Absolutely! 🤣🤣
  12. Apparently the main point of contention between them was curtseying. Her Maj flat out refused to curtsey to Maggie 🤣🤣🤣
  13. He's got my backing. I'm not one for knee-jerk reactions.
  14. Christmas is something endured rather than enjoyed. Bah! Humbug! 🤣🤣🤣
