University tuition fees don't seem like such a good idea all of a sudden.  The students don't want to get into mounting debt with the economic outlook being so bleak for when they graduate, leaving a black hole in university finances.  What an unholy mess. 

They are really going to miss the high paying international students.

There are moves afoot to bring some educational establishments back into public ownership (at an FE level) due to debts.  The Unis are going to be massively hit so they might follow suit (meaning most of the new post-1992 ones, the ones @TK421 looks down his nose at), or they'll just go to the wall.

Don't worry, the Lib-dems will sort that out for them.....

Not all of them, just De Montfort as they were a direct rival.  They ran a big TV advertising campaign when I was a student. This was annoying, because if someone asked me where I went to uni and I said "Leicester Uni", they would reply "oh, De Montfort?".  And I'd say "no not De Montfort, the proper one".

They need to bin these briefings off now. Hosted by Chesney from Corry today with questions such as "should the over 75s still get free telly licenses if they're lonely."

Well they would say that wouldn't they? Bloody foreigners reporting on our news. 

 

To be fair they Surveyed Britons as as well. I actually dug up the Survey here...... https://www.pressgazette.co.uk/survey-finds-that-uk-written-press-is-by-some-way-the-least-trusted-in-europe/ I believe the UK media won this accolade on quite a few occasions.

England hospital only deaths are around <150 per day now. I reckon they’ll be under a 100 next week.

 

I think the other home nations maybe add another 50 per day to that.

 

Obviously nothing to shout about, it’s still tragic,  but as I’ve said a few times, Care Homes and hospitals need to be a separate metric. I reckon >50% of deaths per day now are in Care Homes (they might always have been but the reporting was shite).

CORONAVIRUS: Daily update

As of 9am 20 May, there have been 2,962,227 tests, with 177,216 tests on 19 May. 

1,996,648 people have been tested of which 248,293 tested positive. 

As of 5pm on 19 May, of those tested positive for coronavirus, across all settings, 35,704 have sadly died.

 

What the hell are they doing with the testing? That's nearly 3 tests per person, unless they've flooded the mail again.

Are they seriously relying on the royal mail though? It can take weeks for anything to get to me at the moment.

Why should they be separated out? These are our national statistics, nobody should be excluded.

I agree, they should all be reported but, IMO, it would be more beneficial to see the the deaths split between hospitals and care homes. 
 

Make the reporting stacked graphs, show them them both, but IMO, there should be a split between them. 
 

At the moment, hospital deaths and people in hospital with COVID19 is falling significantly. I’m not saying Care Homes should be ignored, 100% not, but people who work / live in care homes make up significantly less of the population than the general outgoing public. 
 

If anything, splitting the reporting will put more focus on how badly treated the Care Homes have been treated.

I was just doing a "bloody foreigners coming over here taking our jobs" thing.

I don't think there has ever been a doubt that the vast majority of the population have greatly reduced odds.

The only way to dent this government is for a Labour MP to walk upto Jacob Rees Mogg in parliament, say "you think it's fine to spread this do you?" and cough in his face, and watch him dive for cover.  

 

Seems to be working

 

Jacob Rees-Mogg on Tuesday night in Parliament, as the Brexit debate raged around him.

Saw on BBC that it’s slowing down in Europe but rapidly accelerating in other continents (I assume that means South America & Africa).

You see I think that can work both ways. It can mean some people just think it's a virus for care homes, the rest of the population is fine (or heading to fine) , so we can start being more relaxed about social distancing etc, because it's not our problem. People who work in care homes still need to live with the rest of the population and have every chance of spreading to the rest of us when they're shopping etc.
