  1. it was glorious - a deserved win
  2. ah I feel it still applies - we need carnival and culture in any 'new' economy.
  3. second wave, different thing, G614 instead of D614 - https://www.news-medical.net/news/20200925/D614G-mutation-now-the-dominant-variant-in-the-global-COVID-19-pandemic.aspx
  4. Great review Neil - this is what I hoped festivals would do to get by - glad to hear it worked and as you say: "If folkies can stop singing for the sake of the music, then anything is possible."
  5. It was - no indoor sports of more than six - bugger
  6. It it's anything like last year - full lockdown?
  7. Exactly = let's just give everyone a Universal Basic Income forever - no more furlough, no more dole - much better plan.
  8. you'd have thought so - but Boris doesn't always tell Parliament everything - but that is why I put next few hours.
  9. The problem with this plan is the infection rate of the virus - globally it's been linearly infecting a million new cases every 3-4 day - if it was like flu it should have been increasing at least slightly exponentially. That makes this globally a slow spreading virus compared to something like flu, and slow moving virals tend not to mutate so it would be unlikely to evolve or lose its potency for years. A new seasonal flu by comparison can from first case infect up to a billion humans in an average year (365 days). Where as Covid at the speed it is infecting humans around the

  11. To be honest I think the hospitality industry closedown is a right Tory mates back scratching - many pub and restaurant chains ran their businesses with no cases. However Tim Wetherspoon's empire had 22 establishments epicentre outbreaks, so to ensure their mates uneasy alliance stays on board - they thought they'd level the playing field by tarring the competition as well.
  12. Gyms and leisure facilities are currently as I type putting forward the case to be allowed to stay open - the final decision on gyms won't be known until 8pm - for those of us that run sports clubs it's a nail biting next few hours. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/2020/09/21/gyms-leisure-centres-pushing-stay-exempt-new-lockdown/
  13. exactly as Neil says above the shift to dole payments is pretty comparable - and of course if we stopped paying for trident that would free up £2.75 billion a year.
  14. I'm looking forward to living in an anarchy induced Artificial Intelligence overseen freeport overspill car park in a rogue state - it sounds wonderfully dystopian
