  1. The argument of a simpleton some might say. It wasn't a pandemic until the world ignored it.
  2. I think demand will be there, but supply will be limited. The risk of another surge in Coronavirus will be ever-present and airlines will want to be much smaller and financially frugal for the time being.
  3. You might like to have a look at your own government, who deemed it appropriate to allow holidaymakers to gallavant all over the place until a couple of weeks ago. That was reckless in the extreme. All for the sake of a bit of sun and ski. Ridiculous. They knew it was coming weeks ago. I certainly did and made plans to move out of my home 5 weeks ago. I'm glad I did. I stopped all unnecessary movement 4 weeks ago including Ashton Gate. Except there were 20,000 idiots there well after me. Blame the Chinese government if you have to. Not the Chinese. Our government are dangerous a**holes who care nothing for the poor, but I'm not having my name associated with them, any more than a chinese person should with their dictatorial government.
  4. That's right, a couple of billion innocent people should take the flack for the actions of a few.
  5. We can't all look at the evidence and get a sensible answer.
  6. Like many people who forced the PM's hand yesterday.
  7. All the while, a preventative approach to healthcare is almost non-existent. We allow manufacturers to market food barely any better to eat than the packaging it comes in. We allow our population to be sedentary and obese. There's still little emphasis on people taking responsibility for their own health.
  8. Most people are intrinsically selfish. It's just some more than others. We're probably down to the last 5m who couldn't give a shit and laws will be needed to mop them up. My disabled son needs me to help care for him. He's been without me for over a week now depending on the best efforts of his Mum. These shits will only prolong my pain and his pain.
  9. Agreed. We pay much less into health care compared to much of Europe.
  10. Just wish he'd raise tax that directly targets those who can afford it. It's now we need their wealth. I'm willing to pay more.
  11. The election tells you that while the government have been utter shits for a decade, the populous are quite happy with that. That's why I've given up on people. I've a few friends and that's enough until I croak it. The rest?... Meh.
  12. People don't take responsibly, thats the point. Let me give you one example, 3 chaps at work go out every day this week to buy sandwiches at the supermarket. One small thing they could do is buy their lunches for the week and take just the one visit. They couldn't see that when I pointed it out. Government advice doesn't extend beyond hand washing. It does nothing to to increase preparedness or reduce risk to others. It doesn't go close to suggesting that you could save lives by not taking unnecessary trips out, for example. I could go on.
  13. It seems to be absolutely everywhere. The only shred of positivity I can muster - if there really are thousands of undiagnosed folk, yet the deaths are accurate, the death rate may be closer to 0.1%, rather than 1 to 2 %.
  14. The same reason we've ignored the most vulnerable in society, in plain sight, for over a decade.
  15. Most people on twitter don't care about others. Community means nothing to them. It's pretty much every man for themselves in UK society.
  16. China not happy with a fraction of 1% getting it so take stern and effective action. Out government resigned to 80% possibly getting it. UK plc is gambling with millions of lives.
  17. Anyone would think a reduction in benefit and pension liabilities suits the government, the way they've carried on so far.
  18. Yes, plenty of very naive people on this thread. Just look at page 1 to 5 and you'll see how utterly wet behind the ears a number of people are. The evidence was out there a long time ago.
  19. Thanks for you kind words lenred. Maybe many of the sanctimonious folk who often tell us that the work BCFC does at the local hospice "puts things in to perspective" will go ahead and prove it by doing the right thing. But they won't.
  20. Brownhill is now free to call him a bullsh*tter on twitter now if he fancies.
  21. Charlatan is that man. Anyone who can talk around something for years, yes years, and never actually explain what they mean is one of them.
  22. Indeed. Due to my son's health issues he will leave school this week and myself and my daughter will be moving out this weekend, leaving my wife and son in total isolation. For how long, who knows. Genuinely, I may not see them for months. I'm very upset about it and still can't understand the flippant, laissez-faire attitude that, ultimately will come back to bite. Disabled people, who can't generally isolate are in the firing line and depend on us all to avoid both contraction on transmission. It's a shame most people are just looking after themselves and considering themselves and not others.
  23. If you think our government have any intention of controlling the virus like the Chinese then I believe you are mistaken. There will be no curfew, no wholesale impact on movement.
  24. Indeed, personal choice. As it happens, if the only way to secure the health of your children is to live in a bubble, then it's by no means panicking. It's a considered and measured response.
  25. People don't like the economic impact, until its one of their family who dies. Then the economic factor is less important. I've no way of proving it, of course not, but I'm sure someone will directly/indirectly be infected and die as a direct result of football matches this weekend. Is that really worth it?
