The foreign fruit pickers that haven’t decided to go home have been gathering in droves for a while now too. They all live together in the camp sites though.

Weird that we shipped in foreign fruit pickers, I thought the 52% who think we don't need migrant workers would be gagging to volunteer at their local farm!

I was wondering the other day if South America becoming the epicentre, and the drop in cases in Europe even with lockdown easing could suggest a seasonality to it which we're starting to benefit from? Total guess though.

I think covid's still going strong in India, don't know if that means it's not affected by heat/sun that much or if it's more to do with how they've been dealing with it (badly?).

Thanks, an interesting article but as with you I have no idea if its just another idea that can be rubbished or whether there is something it in. I suppose with each day that goes by and more data is available we will find out more. 

Probably too early to come to any conclusions.....fingers crossed it will just die out and we'll all be allowed to hug each other etc (and go to work I guess).

Fair point. I'm so cross that already this is yesterdays news. They should still be badgered.

We have the recall petition available to us which is through The Recall of MPs Act 2015 and is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom that makes provision for constituents to be able to recall their Member of Parliament (MP) and call a by-election. This petition is successful if at least one in ten voters in the constituency sign.

You missed out the most important part, they have to have been convicted of a (fairly serious) criminal offence, so that wouldn't apply in this case.

Yeah, the guy is a mathematician so not necessarily any science behind it.

An interesting concept in the tweet you posted is cross-immunisation though. It is strange that you can have situations when for example a husband gets it but the wife doesn’t. Pure speculation of course but there is always the possibility that a portion of the population are simply immune to it.

I think Boris himself described Coronavirus as a puzzle that needed solving and it’s certainly that.

Oh absolutely, I completely agree on that. The initial trip was a breach of quarantine, but the ridiculous jolly to BC was a breach of lockdown rules.

I wonder why Johnson announced the easing of certain lockdown rules meaning people can have bbqs togetheer on the Thursday before a sunny weekend even though not supposed to come into effect until Monday? Can't think why.

So they can make a few more quid from fining people over the weekend.

So we're saying Boris and Trump aren't so bad after all?

Compared to Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot, they're alright.  I suppose.

Barnard Castle - not to be confused with DC's wife's actual castle.

A birthday day out at her own castle wouldn't be a day out.

Yes, but what do the figures look like adjusted for population, eh? 😉

Good point.

Not dictators but it would be interesting to see where they fall on that graph. Especially Obama.

I don't know if we're living in Contagion, 28 Days Later, or Planet of the Apes.
