  1. Pretty sane and sensible in York today, though I wasn't out late on.
  2. What I find striking about that is this idea that Iran is seeing a horrendous disaster unfold, but those daily death rates have, at this point, never been significantly higher than what the UK levels are now. Granted that ours are at least going down.
  3. Tadcaster should be really nice, but unfortunately it's an antediluvian hellhole full of racists and really belongs in the other thread.
  4. Knaresborough. My York-Leeds rail season ticket is valid via Harrogate and Knaresborough so I can go home that way of an evening and take in a couple of pubs and a stroll along the river. One of the many things that Covid-19 has done for, at least for a while.
  5. I've been to Portsmouth a couple of times with the footy, stayed in the Old Town and really liked it. The bit around Fratton looked rough as owt, though.
  6. Is it just me or are there zillions of goldfinches everywhere you go at the moment? I don't have a problem with them or anything, in fact they are rather cheering, but I don't remember them being so common in previous years.
  7. To me I think the situation is fairly clear. Championship clubs can't afford to play in front of empty stadiums so there will be no resumption until crowds are allowed. That isn't going to happen for some time. By the time it does happen, in what sense would it be the same season if the season were to resume?
  8. I was really looking forward to going to the CC final (and maybe that can still happen), but it wouldn't occur to me to go the FA cup final.
  9. Which would imply that handball is also a kind of football... I do like my football and was a season ticket holder at York City for a while and I still sometimes go, but they've been so wretched for so long that it's really sucked the enjoyment out of it. I mean, you generally don't expect City to be very good, but the last few seasons have been ridiculous. I get much more enjoyment out of RL these days.
  10. Yep, just got the e-mail as I already bought a ticket. No surprise at all, let's hope it can still go ahead at some point.
  11. Yes, you're right. I just went back to check and it was mentioned in the Guardian's live coverage when NHS England announced today's death numbers, not during the press conference.
  12. I believe that the issue with reporting of deaths was mentioned in the daily press conference, certainly the Guardian's live coverage picked up on it.
  13. The problem with this is the virus then spreads exponentially through the population, around 4 or 5 % of those infected need hospitalising, the NHS is massively overwhelmed and tens of thousands of people needlessly die. Clearly the lockdown comes with its own problems but we aren't doing it because we want to.
