  1. On social media I have read about quite a few 'concerns' from families who's loved ones die and have 'probable Covid' on the death cert, I wold have thought to be included in the 'daily death figures' there would have to be a blood test of the deceased at least, and not just an assumption made. Anyone know if this is the case?
  2. From yesterdays Metro:- A group of NHS nurses who performed the haka while chanting about ‘destroying’ coronavirus have apologised after being accused of cultural appropriation. At the end of the footage, one woman chants: ‘This is the message we wish to affirm, You’ll never beat us we hate you, you germ. Together we’ll triumph with the strength from within. Mankind will destroy you, mankind will win.’ The team have now apologised for the video after it was branded ‘blatant cultural abuse that is verging on being racist’ by Māori cultural advisor Karaitiana Taiuru, in New Zealand. Full story here - Metro
  3. This is the bit that tickled me, had a quiet giggle ... "The Rafale-B's command ejection system is meant to fire both seats if one of the crew pulls the handle. A very confused pilot, however, was still sitting in his newly canopy-free Rafale wondering what the hell had just happened. He returned to land, conscious all the time that the seat could fire at any moment without warning."
  4. Sometimes it seems like a competition between the different news broadcasters on how they view things. Over the weekend there was a news report on one of the main news channels about how hard the lock down is effecting dairy farmers, with an interview with a very upset lady farmer who runs a dairy farm, and showing video of her pouring milk down the drains as she can't sell it as demand for milk had dropped to it's lowest levels ever. Next day, the other channel does a piece on milkmen and dairy farmers under lock down where the milkman says his turnover on doorstep deliveries has increased by a lot and he can't get enough milk, and the dairy farmer says he could do with doubling his heard as he is working flat out and can't keep up with demand for milk. Two rival channels, two different reports. Maybe it differs in different parts of the country?
  5. Cheers for the update, think I am just trying to look out for any bit of 'good news' from this awful situation.
  6. Not sure if something like this can be classed as 'good news' , but it's been reported down here on the south east news, and I paraphrase, that the hospitals down here are coping quite well with the virus and the intensive care units are only three quarters full (good news ?) and that the Nightingale Hospitals are not needed yet. Predictions showed them as being opened and quite full by now. Found this in the Guardian, but its a couple of days old Guardian article
  7. Not trying to make light of this, but there was a 'medical person' who specialises in infectious diseases on our radio last week talking about how deaths are recorded for this virus. He said that if there is a death, from whatever cause, and the deceased has the corona virus, it is classed as a corona virus death, whether it has any bearing on the cause of death or not. However he did say that most deaths are caused by the virus, but not all.
  8. Very helpful ... err, just wondering, is Pornhub back online? Asking for a friend.
  9. Next door neighbour has a teenage son who's school closes down today. He has told her that 'all the boys form school' have planned to 'meet up' at various locations around the town ni the coming weeks. She has told him he won't be going out, but I bet a lot of parents won't know where their kids are. Silly old young selfish b*******.
  10. Must be a regional thing, our big Tesco are limiting you to three packets of pasta, and 3 anti bac hand lotions. Everything else ok, even toilet rolls. One of their staff said they have plenty of stock, and more being delivered, " It's being caused by idiots who are panicking", (her words) .
  11. Been talking to my neighbour who has been on his monthly stocking up trip with his misses to Costco at Watford. He says they have security guarding the toilet rolls and limiting it to a pack ( of 40) to one per customer as people have been buying dozens of packs at a time and causing a bit of an issue.
  12. What have they done? (Genuine question). Heard the East League was still a bit up in the air with 4 teams confirming and another three still to decide which league and what level to play at.
  13. Coventry Bears 10-40 Newcastle Thunder Doncaster 18-24 Barrow Raiders London Skolars 22-16 North Wales Crusaders West Wales Raiders 6-46 Hunslet Workington Town 22-18 Keighley Cougars
  14. Spot on. That or they reduce its size to half the screen whilst they scroll up, putting an advert on for the next program on the other half.
  15. New sign just gone up in the supermarket, not jumping on the bandwagon or anything ... " Domestos, kills all known germs and VIRUSES"
  16. Couple of days ago on tv this was asked by a reporter of one of the ministers, who was there, and he replied something along the lines of 'The PM thinks if he did attend then his visit would take emergency workers away from their jobs of helping the victims ... and he would probably get an ear full as well'.
  17. Really good, enjoyed that, nice to know about the players ... but what a pity there is still this kind of attitude in union ( 2 mins in, "I got quite a lot of threats, if you go and trial for league then you won't be playing for us next week ...." )
  18. Great coverage. But from the Sky correspondent outside of Buck House on 8.30am news this morning "Would we be here reporting on the Rugby League World Cup draw if Prince Harry wasn't involved - probably not." Sad but true.
  19. Let's get back on track - Bedfordshire Bronco saw Scott Murrell Stroking his pet flying squirrel, He got a fist full of fur Said "I didn't do it Sir" And it turned out his squirrel was feral
