Re: TRIDENT BILLIONS

My hope is that after all of this the world will be a gentler, kinder place. After this everything will return to "normal". People will soon forget how places like Wetherspoons and Sports direct(and others) have behaved and will just quietly slip back into a routine. 1000s of us will book...

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

Well if the hand wringers reallly want something to worry about, a man who was found dead on a bus, in China last week, and who ( it was presumed ) had died of COVID-19, actually didn’t ( die of COVID-19 ) He actually died of Hantavirus, which is normally found in rats. If you think this current vi...

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

As for your last comment...well as I've said before I'll listen to a professional.The vast majority of survivors have been nowhere near a respirator and are just sat about at home etc. Agreed, most have never even been near a hospital with it. That doesn’t contradict what I said. You say you listen...

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

should we be worried that charly boy has caught it? I think so as it shows the deep penetration inot the Uk? The ones we know about are just the tip of the ice berg? I think it's fair to say that there are many more thousands of cases in the UK than 'confirmed' cases. People with symptoms are being...

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

I suspect deaths will be at least 500,000 over next 12 months. . For 500,000, read 15,000. And listen to Radio 4 More or Less: Sir David Speigelhalter NOW ON explaining that covid19 will be broadly in line with flu this year. You can almost hear him thinking on his feet, but he's coming round to re...

You’ve too much time on your hands if you can watch that drivel again. Reading it is quicker https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/pm-address-to-the-nation-on-coronavirus-23-march-2020 I've now read that at least a dozen times and I conclude this:- Nowhere does he state "lockdown".He edg...

I've just deleted everything. I've no wish to escalate. Did you not think you had already escalated it when you resorted to name calling :lol: Asking yourself why you keep on getting moderated would be a useful suggestion.
