What's full lockdown mean?

 

Read the article mate. Basically everything business wise stops except medical/pharmaceutical services and food chain.

 

ETA and self isolation becomes mandatory. You can go for a walk, but only with the people you live with. That sort of thing.

Thought it would be easier just to get you to explain it!

Seems to make sense to give it a crack over when the Easter Holidays are going to be, as the schools will be closed and a fair few people not working anyway.

Piers on a proper rant this morning on GMB and I have to say I agree with every fucking word he's fucking saying.

You know you’re in trouble when you read things like this.

Harvey Weinstein is positive for the virus.

 

Given the lack of tests in the US, I’m not sure how that scumbag managed to get one. 
 

Hopefully he’s very, very, very sick from it.

I thought all restaurants were supposed to close on Friday. 

I don’t think it covered fast food restaurants.

They're next.   MacDonalds had cut everyone's hours down and were still flat out on the drive thru, no doubt making enough money. 

 

They've not made this decision out of the goodness of their heart.

My colleague's son, in the NZAF in Blenheim, has been on special training for the last 3 weeks: lots of "stuff" they dont normally do, extra PT, arms, the lot.

Does this include target practice where they were ordered to shoot the citizens instead of the bad guys?

I’ll wager there’s a few cunts who’ve had a whinge at staff about that.

I got this note from Gordon (Pistonbroke), from his hospital bed in Bielefeld, and he asked me to pass it on to "the lads":

 

After a rough night I'm feeling a bit better, being on drips with liquid medicine is having an effect.  Had all tests done for corona and have to wait 48 hours or thereabouts for the results.  8 people were taken to the city hospital with the same symptoms, but none of us has a high fever.  So we are all lined up to have a camera shoved down our airways to check on them and lungs. That is planned for today as I'm nil by mouth. I'll let you know more once I get the results from both the camera and the corona test...

Get well, Pissy. I'll try to step up my Rico-annoying game while you're recovering.

Canada have pulled out the Never Gonna Be Olympics. The formal death knell sounds. Time for Japan to accept some reality and postpone them.

So going off these stats there are/have been circa 100,000 symptomatic cases in the UK?

If it’s saying we’ve only reported 10% of cases wouldn’t that be nearer 500,000 symptomatic cases, as were up to 5000 plus reported cases at the moment.

No, 5,000 is 10% of 50,000. If we'd reported 1% of cases, then that would be 500,000 in all.

Rubbish at spelling as well. That's not how you spell 'nonce'.

The herd immunity supporters have gone awfully quiet round here.

It was a very optimistic leap to transfer the science studied for the use of vaccines on specific diseases to covid 19 with antibodies being generated from just catching it and getting better. Don't know much but one of the diseases we have vaccines for that herd immunity doesn't work for is flu and flu type viruses as they specifically have the ability to mutate into slightly different forms rendering the vaccine  antibodies useless to the newly shaped antigens on the virus. Thus you have to get an upgraded flu vaccine every year. As you can see I have been home schooling biology at weekend ! Perhaps Cummings could have read the BBC bitesize module on microorganisms it's all there for 13 year olds.

 

Anyway he is a knob and it's now hopefully obvious to all let's get it done voters that  herd immunity was another slogan just to ensure plenty of parasite no weath generation pensioners and pre existing burden on society patients caught the virus in order to balance the books for providing the needed bailout for businesses. 

I am cynical but have lived through conservative governments before. All this fawning over the chancellor and his bail out. Yes it needed but they will claw it back be under no illusions. The middle to lower escelons of society will be paying for this for next 30 years.

I reckon Rico took the initiative and tried poisoned him.
 

PB even posted a mock-up photo of a poisoned Russian spy...

    • It’s way past ridiculous with United and the penalties. Chelsea not getting one in the Maguire situation is just a complete joke.
    • Not many CBs are going to look great playing such a high line on our right side with Trent and  Salah in front of them. We know the risks and play the system according but the CB is going to be a made a fool of quite regularly.  
    • Saturday Oct 17:   Everton 2 L 2. I’m too angry to say anything really coherent about this. It will all be in the match report so I’m not going to even comment on the controversial issues from this. If I start I doubt I’ll be able to stop so instead I’m just going to focus on the football side of it. We played well. It was the perfect response to what happened at Villa as you could see the determination the lads had to immediately stamp their authority on this one.    From the first whistle they were right at Everton. The two early fouls by Virg showed how pissed off he was with the Villa result and he set the tone as we were on the front foot. It looked like we would blow them away but then you know what happened and the momentum was taken away from us. The reaction was good though and we bossed the first half.   The second half was scrappy to begin with but eventually we took control and we were by far the better team. We should be better as we’re the Champions and they’re Everton, but they went into this in the best shape they’ve been in for decades. And we were coming off that Villa game. Then we lost our most important player (we were already without Alisson) but despite all this we’ve completely schooled them.    Forget the result, that doesn’t tell the story. This was dominance. Everton know they’re still not even remotely close to being at our level. Maybe that’s why they act like thugs every time we play them?   I have always put that down to the crowd and the effect that 30,000 baying bitter bastards has on players, but it turns out that’s got fuck all to do with it. It’s not the fans that make them act like that, it’s the fucking badge. Dirty cunts.   Sunday Oct 18:   So he’s done for the season then. Grade 3 ACL tear, which basically means his whole knee needs re-attaching. We’re looking at probably 12 months until he’s back at full speed so this is an absolute fucking nightmare. I’m unspeakably angry about it all as the whole situation was a fucking disgrace, and I don’t just mean the tackle.    I’m probably in the minority here but I’m angrier about Oliver and Coote not punishing Pickford than I am at Pickford for actually doing it. I’m not defending him at all, but these things do occasionally happen as it’s always been part of the game. What should never happen is for a referee to see it and do nothing. That’s the thing that’s getting to me.    David Coote should no longer be in a job this morning, but fuck all will happen to him despite him being guilty of quite literally the worst bit of officiating I’ve ever seen. An on field ref not getting a decision right is one thing, but when you have access to replays and still get it as wrong as Coote did that’s negligence of the highest order. Sack the cunt.   Naturally there’s a lot of defeatism around after this. Our title prospects have taken a severe hit and it might be too much to overcome. I don’t think it’s as clear cut as a lot of people are making out though, mainly because everyone else is flawed. Look at Spurs today, 3-0 up and looking great. Looking like title contenders even. Then they conceded three to West Ham and drew. That’s what I’m saying. All the other top teams have their faults and it’s not going to take 99 points to win it this year.   Actually it wouldn’t have taken 99 last year. That’s what we got, but 82 would have been enough. Somewhere around that will do it this year too probably (I expect maybe 86/87ish might be enough) and we can get that even without Virgil. His injury means we aren’t going to run away with it again but it shouldn’t mean we can’t be right in the thick of it. We need to pray that Matip doesn’t break down again and that Alisson is back soon. If that happens and we can get to January still in the shake up, we can bring someone in and finish the season strongly.   Clean sheets are going to be hard to come by now (they were anyway) and we might see a lot more of those crazy 5-4 type games again, but we were a good side before Virgil and we’re still a good side now. We’re better now than we were before we signed him and although we’ll obviously miss him big time, we have enough strength in other areas of the pitch to keep the rig on the road.   I feel worse for Virgil himself than I do for our prospects this season, because I think we’ll be alright.     This is just a teaser, click here to view full article   Please note that the Week that Was is only available to website subscribers.
