Do you actually know anyone in China, understand the culture or been there?? You'd be surprised how many people are oblivious or don't see anything different to the controls over them as lived with it all their lives.... we only hear a snippet of what goes on there or what they actually think

 

Yes I have, I’ve been to shanghai and Beijing. I’ve also been to Hong Kong and Taiwan and my auntie is from Taiwan so I understand the culture. I wouldn’t want the ordinary citizen hurt. But I wouldn’t hesitate to destroy their bases in the south China see which they have militarised. I’ve also been on a tour to North Korea and that was just shocking actually felt so sorry for the poor people

Last time we were this high, there was a spike in a factory somewhere, anything like that today?

So testing figures for the last week have been updated and when plotted as a ratio of tests/positive cases the trend looks like this......it's certainly on an upwards trajectory, but the rate of increase remains gradual and doesn't seem to be accelerating.  I'd rather it was going the other way though....

Okay fair enough but as someone who has friends, colleagues and worked with around SE Asia and China for nearly 20 years (my last job my team of 6 was based there).. I don't think bombing a superpower like China and starting a war is a sensible thing to do and it's not something anyone benefits from - I'm sure you think they might be benefits but seriously I could not agree less tbh

You do realise how much stuff we buy from them? I know folk say boycott and buy British made (which would be great to see increase and revival of industries) but realistically we don't have the resource to produce the same volumes they do hence why our need for consumerism is satisfied via SE Asia - we want they provide

Businesses would not see UK as attractive option for most goods as we are simply too expensive, shit I know but that's the reality

Appreciate your points, but I feel we need to be ethical about where we source our goods, is wrong that sweat shops exist.

I work in quality and ethical compliance, that's basically my job and making the assumption that every factory in SE Asia is a sweat shop is a common misconception of people who don't tend to work with supply chain and factories.

I'm not saying sweat shops don't exist, but I will say in the 23 years I've worked in the industry the worst factory I have reviewed was actually in Leicester, don't be fooled by location

Hearing they’re going to do a u-turn on the “back to work” campaign. They won’t formally advise working from home again, but they’re going to row back the campaign to get people back into offices. 

Yep :lol:

It was a long time ago but it was H&S issues and the layout was very dangerous, they were also trying to hide workers and prevent access to areas which is always a warning sign... there was other stuff but can't remember it always sticked though

I will say though H&S and compliance rules and regs have really improved over the years which is a good thing as having these things in law help on implementation rather than being just best practice. This is a good thing out of the EU universal practice which minimises different rules - I dread to think how this will all change as already causing chaos now especially around chemical and safety compliance, but that's a conversation for another day...

It bugs me when people moan about H&S gone mad (especially older folk I'm afraid who remember the good ole days) but it really helps people's safety and it has reduced deaths and injuries which is the whole point

Thanks for sharing, I guess all rules are there to protect the workers first

It's important that people get sunlight to make vitamin D, that is vital for your immune system, if you are staying at home at least sit on your doorstep and get some sunshine this weekend. Even an hour of sunshine will boost your vitamin D levels.

This has been known for months, I first mentioned Vitamin D at the beginning of April, and have been going on about it since. You would think the scientific community as a whole would be moving a bit faster than this, there were papers months ago proving the benefit of vitamin D, The BAME community in particular should have been advised to take Vitamin D by the government and their scientific advisers. So here is my advice again (for any that want to listen) get out in the sun if you can, and take vitamin D supplements throughout winter to boost your immune system and ward off the effects of covid and other diseases.

Got my Wellman multivitamins with 200% d3 stocked to get me to next summer! Partly to beat the rush when they finally tell people to do it and partly to avoid any Brexit supply issues!

It’s about time something is done about China, I’m hoping India go to war with them NATO join in and destroy their country. I hate communists but I hate them for what their doing to Muslims and how their destroying Hong Kong, there a bully and needs a good few MOABS dropped on them to sort them out and put them back into the place they came from. There is one China and that’s the republic of China Taiwan not the terrorists on the mainland

Why should I? I’m merely stating the negatives the CCP are leading.  As an American and British citizden isn’t it about time We stand up to the global bully and put them out of action! Ww3 is coming and we need to prepare 

Honestly, purely selfish point of view I don't want to go to war personally and I would refuse if forced even if it meant jail or worse. I know it's bad what they're doing but it's not as if the UK and US are exactly innocent in the things they've done aroumd the world over the years (to muslims also) so I wouldn't assume we're on the side of good and righteous.

I get it's a bit different for you with family in Taiwan but to the average British person it isnt our job to join america in being the world police. We arent in direct danger of being taken over and invaded so it's not a WW2 situation. The only thing a war with China will bring is millions dead in the UK alone, and a destroyed planet.

The only way we'd have a chance going near China is with conscription and millions dead. 

Even if it was kept to conventional somehow, they would arm every man woman and child and we wouldn't have a chance of winning.

1,735 cases today, the highest since 4th June.

We're creeping towards records from when they were mainly testing hospitalised people. But without the uptick in hospitalisations. I'm very much feeling quietly positive about things

They won't! They've got vaccines to sell, and a covid test that is strangely called ID Now

but don't worry Toilet Duck thinks it's a good idea so there's nothing to be concerned about.

Genuine question but what is so wrong with the u-turns. I personally prefer these than ploughing ahead with stuff that is just wrong. Seriously would we have not all welcomed a u-turn on the Cummings saga?

I bloody really dislike this government but fair is fair. I have no issue with them changing their mind so that we get a better outcome and by tarnishing this as bad is going to be surely worse in the long term (they may not change bad decisions due to concern about these connotations).
