    NHSE projection is that the next peak will be in 6 weeks time and they reckon the number of patients will be higher than the first wave, but we'll see I guess.

    Roy Hodgson, know your role and shut your mouth

    Correct, there was a lot of the 'it's Rafa's fault' brigade

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Is Adam Werritty going to be his private secretary?
  4. Oh dear, I'm sorry but Chic are an infinitely better band, Rodgers and Edwards basically created a unique and addictive sound that was brought to mass audiences and is heavily borrowed from even now. I can't remember the last time I heard a band remotely ape or sample a Red Hot Chili Peppers record.

    Interesting, thanks

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    This will be a genuine issue for them and the city as a whole (I.e. increasing intensity of storms and sea level rise), a significant amount of investment is going to be required for sea wall defences etc. In the non-too-distant future, which looking at their designs hasn't been factored in.

    Donald Trump

    I think his short attention span, rants and bumbiling idiocy in some way protect from the hard nose viciousness of the republican party in a as much that it is an obstruction to them getting on with their horrific agenda in a more efficient manner. Having said that they have passed the gigantic tax cut for their donors, upped military spending and have packed the courts with their stooges so perhaps they are doing just fine even with the imbecile in the proponent position.

    Feels again like a half way house bit, we have had patients who have been shedding the virus 12 to 13 days after initial symptoms so unless you are actually going to extend it for 2 weeks... Though I suppose the reckoning is that by 10 days most carriers will have surmounted it. A huge amount of what the government is about currently is defending themselves in the face of a future public inquiry, I'm sure that's why there is a fair amount of obfuscated messaging rather than intervention.

    This may be the case but as the virus continues to circulate it should start to become less potent as viruses mutate to ensure their host survives more effectively. Also as the treatment options get better this should enable the NHS/healthcare systems to better deal with an influx of new cases- dexamethazone, remdesivir, convalescent plasma, IVIG, vitamin c/d high dosage IVs, anticoagulants, Tociluzimab to block the Cytokine storm etc. Re-organisation of services should also allow for reduced infection rates within hospitals and therefore limit the spread of the disease, leading to less of a peak and therefore potential collapse of services as occurred in Bergamo and some hospitals in Madrid. We'll have to see what happens with the second spike, or whether we can flatten it to a low rolling hill. I find the contrast between England and the other nations in the UK and Ireland interesting, England seems to be going for an 'acceptable' background case rate while the other nations are aiming to quash it all together and then use contact tracing to get on-top of local outbreaks.

    Sky sports post match coverage

    I'm not looking for hyperbole, just something commensurate with what is happening on the field. Not excellent attacking play being greeted with something akin to commentating on the death of a donkey in a rescue sanctuary.

    Sky sports post match coverage

    Is there a particular reason why Tyler dislikes us? I realise his career tracked Manchester United's success during the 90's and 00's but is that it? Just a sort of proxy affiliation? His efforts describing this team have been pathetic verging on unprofessional, in particular the Barcelona game last year was embarrassing when comparing his commentary against other outlets.

    Russia Report

    Agreed, supine as fuck that lot. Correction, if you exclude harassing anyone to the left of Chris Leslie where suddenly they imitate a gang of flagelants undertaking human wave attacks in their ferocity.

    Russia Report

    This is perfect for the Conservative party no? It allows them to kick it into the long grass for another couple of years while still receiving wads of cash from Russian oligarchs.

    'As an individual, don't expect any help long term from us, oh and if your boss asks you to come into a dangerous work place then you better head in and make sure you wear a mask, but not always, but do wear one, also socially distance, but also get close together to get the economy moving make up your own mind about the distance, meet up with people indoors but also don't as it might increase the risk of infection but get down the pub but just don't speak to someone on another table' Look you can see the benthic floor...

    I've got to say I feel pretty tired/worried about what this government would do in the event of a second spike*, I get the district impression that there will be no attempt at a nation wide/ even regional level lock down that would appropriately control the virus. Instead the confused messaging will continue, which at this juncture is pretty obviously aimed to ensure that normal activity continues while providing sufficient legal and political cover for the government to blame the public/wriggle out of any future inquiry. We've already seen from the Italian example that local lock-downs just result in more people travelling out of area spreading the virus further. It's interesting how the virus is making mockery of the primacy of the individual, it doesn't care about your individual rights the key to overcoming as a society lies within the collective, but this is something that our managed democracy helmed as it is by kleptocrats raised on diet of; Friedman, Hayek, Rand, other simpletons are unable to channel effectively**. If the twerps would learn the lessons of the first wave it is that you have to act decisively and with the health consideration to the fore front as this reduces the economic impact over the longer term, but I note that the scientific advice is slowly being pushed even further to one side or made a opaque as possible. The tube has been interesting, the Hammersmith and City line has been fairly quite in the mornings once they worked out they need to run more than one train every 20 minutes (though I know tfl struggled with staff at one point) and face coverings have been worn fairly extensively. On the Central line however hardly anyone seems to wear a mask or have it slung under their chin or nose like a fucking moron, smearing any viral particles they are coming into contact with all other their face. I've posited this difference down to the fact that the H&C line has more hospitals along its course which means their are more health care professionals using the service who know how to wear their masks effectively, which then creates a social precedent for others to attain. While the virus has produced an extraordinary camaraderie and collaborative effort from the staff at work, it has also created some of the worst days of my working life. I'm just glad that so far my family has not been effected. I'm going to try get-up to see my parents for the first time since Christmas soon, the logistics involved in trying to make sure they are safe feels substantial and it's a calculated risk, but it will just be great to see them, to hug my Dad and celebrate Liverpool winning the league. * to be fair to NHSE they have been pushing Nov 2020, June 2021 for a long time to us **this will of course is inevitably mirrored in their response to the current and projected effects of climate change. I note in this crisis that the chancellor has reached for a simulacra disaster keynesian lever, but this is of course a product of necessity to save their precious rentier parasitic streams of cash and most importantly those of their backers as well.
