Just listening to TalkSport (feel free to ridicule me)

 

One of there reporters is out in China and he has said that they have begun getting 'back to normal' after their shutdown in Jan, could anyone confirm whether it was early or late Jan China went into lockdown ?

Feel like it was late Jan, but hard to keep track of timescales at the minute...

Morning Nobby! So, I read the Imperial report last night. One key point about it is that it used actual data from China and Italy to inform the models, rather than some of the more theoretical mo

I know you're just being a troll, but in all seriousness people don't actually need comments like that right now. The last thing we need is mindless trolls scaremongering. It's a bit pathetic. There's

I was just looking at Download and Isle of Wight for any indication of what they were thinking and they haven’t even mentioned it yet. 
 

Incidentally, the lineup for IOW is pretty rotten isn’t it.

If we were in this position 17 days a go I think the number of people who could confidently say Glasto will be on this year would be significantly larger than today.

China have done well in stopping the spread of the virus...WHO are suggesting everyone do the same as China which is why they were criticising UK method. No idea if will return in China though once things get back to normal...it is like one big experiment.

It’s likely to calm down imminently but return again in the winter. Hopefully by then we’ll have either a vaccine or a better plan in place to deal with it. 
 

For example Bubonic Plague has never gone away, we just know how to handle it now.

'Spanish flu' sort-of went away, and quite quickly too. In the 2nd wave the virus mutated to a sort-of standard flu which wasn't particularly lethal. So that's hopeful.

The bad news is that 2nd wave was much more deadly than the first. :(

Interesting. What Glastonbury have on their side is that they are able to introduce new terms and conditions when we pay our tickets off at the start of April.

Would they be able to protect themselves by changing the conditions so that payment of the ticket balance in April is for EITHER Glastonbury 2020 OR should that postponed, Glastonbury 2021. That way they get to keep the money, helping out with cashflow should the festival be postponed.

This seems like a sensible way forward and allows everyone to know where they stand... at least more than at present.

Coronavirus measures could be in place 'for months' says UK adviser

Asked if the new coronavirus measures could be in place for 18 months, the government’s chief scientific officer, Sir Patrick Vallance told the Health Select Committee he doesn't know.

However he said they are likely to last for months, “certainly not a couple of weeks”.

I'm not at all intending to ridicule you. I watch BBC news in the background as white noise to help me work. 

I do wonder what TalkSport have to talk about this week though? It's all cancelled!!!

me, I've been bulk buying. A huge un-needed amount.

Of logs. We've got enough for the woodburner for heating, but i've bought some in for the summer, for a fire when sitting outside in the garden in the evenings.

Cos there's going to be fuck all else to do. ;)

I am so sorry to announce this, the festival is cancelled. Source, Michaels eldest daughter Juliet Eavis. 

Bearing in mind Emily's husband said Paul McCartney wasn't playing this year, there's still hope!
