Very impressed with the results... pint glass for size comparison. Perhaps committed 2 minutes too long and they caught. 
 

Don’t get me started on other boredom activities. We’ve successfully recreated famous scenes from 2 of our favourite films; Jurassic Park & Gladiator. Sadly, they’re too big to post on here. 
 

oh and it was rob of beef. Lovely stuff.

Several pages back I saw some misleading figures about how many extra deaths there had been so far this year. In fact so far we are running at below the average of the last 5 years:

What is the point of that story, a few people are feeling ill after attending a festival (that they never had to attend). So just 3 people out of 250000 but it must have been caught there, surely there would be a lot higher percentage of people who got it if they got it there?

It's not as if they have been anywhere else is it? 

Perhaps not everyone posts on twitter when they’re ill? I know it was the last thing on my Mind when I had whatever it was at Xmas. I couldn’t even reach over to pick up my phone 😂 it would be surprising if no one caught or spread the virus at such a large gathering though.

That was the kind of reaction I expected tbh. That isn't what I'm saying. Where is the shock and outrage for the 600,000 loved ones who die every year is the point. Why isn't there massive pressure to spend whatever it takes to save them when there isn't a pandemic. Why has everyone been happy to sit back and allow the govt to decide not to spend more on healthcare in the past when that is condemning people to die early? The reaction to this is at odds with how we normally decide spending on healthcate is all I'm saying. 

Many people voted for Brexit because of a bus slogan to spend more money on the NHS. The problem is since then no one has held the government to account for not actually giving the NHS any more money. There’s also the mismanagement that needs to be sorted before they throw money at it.

Stupid question , local pub is selling bottles - it’s a brewery. Is it safe to buy ? Keen to support them in this difficult time 

I saw places doing this, I appreciate they have to survive but people queuing up at the pub to have their bottles filled up with beer etc is as bad as them going to the pub in the first place - defeats the point

We will see how it pans out, to many people trying to make political miles out of this.  Why I've deleted a load of people on Facebook..

I don't understand why this shouldn't be talked about in political terms though. It's surely possible to criticise the government without making political miles out of the situation.

No doubt they're waiting for a big spike in deaths before they impose anything stricter. "Only" 48 new ones today which isn't enough for them.

Tbh I think most people are anticipating that we'll be locked down before too long.

Stay at home, if you possibly can

thats really going to hammer the message home!

You could write that on a bit of paper and nail it to someones forehead - but some are so pig thick and ignorant, they'd still ignore it.

What else can be done ? Curfews policed by the army ?

Even if an Italian style ‘lockdown’ was imposed tonight the cases and deaths would still rise sharply over the next few weeks.

I don’t understand how we can still allow ******* morons to stroll around Weston Seafront in huge numbers despite the constant warnings from the Government and the Health Service?

Im a key worker so I’ve got no choice but there were plenty of people out and about in Bristol yesterday who certainly didn’t appear to be working.

Clearly a large number of people in this country can’t be trusted so this surely now needs to be enforced in some way.

Could but wont, why should our figures be worse than China that has 25 times our population you should stop with the scaremongering as it isn't doing anyone any good, most of us are doing all we can (I said most) we don't need all the pessimism, give it a rest your preaching to the mostly converted apart from completely giving up on life there is little more most of us can do.

I wasn’t scaremongering and I certainly wasn’t preaching - so you give it a rest - I was responding to a poster who said he/she hadn’t seen quoted figures of 250k+ possible deaths - I was providing the info they asked for - that’s all, no need for you to butt in

I think more needs to be done for businesses that aren’t complying. I see the concerns they have about going under, and I completely understand but we still haven’t sent people to work from home yet except any one who has a cough (and some came in before being sent home).

i wouldn’t personally want an army enforced curfew, but I can’t see any other solution. People aren’t listening and they’re being selfish.

its really sad because following brexit this was an ideal opportunity for the whole country to pull together for a common good and could have gone a long way to bridge divides.

It's a funny world we live in.

If there's World War breaking out, you can rest assured those of us that are able would get called to arms, given some basic training and taught how to shoot and kill another man.

I wonder if a global pandemic posed a similar threat to our nation (which it could do), whether those of us that are 'low risk' could be trained and equipped to potentially save lives?

Surely it wouldn't be that hard to train someone to take Ob's or to intubate a patient? It could help free up the more fully trained staff to care for those who need it most.

I know it would never happen but sometimes you have to ask why and look at where our priorities lie...

...bit like how the EFL are celebrated for pledging £50m to clubs. How many ventilators does that get you now days?

Nevermind eh
