  1. With Crankie in charge they have every right to be.
  2. Aspire? I'd guess some of our lock'em-down gang are already, if not almost, there; safe in their pressure-filtered air cocoons with tin-foil hats firmly in place.
  3. Indeed - it's the last 2 lines that I 'bolded' that slowly some of the MSM are taking on board and discussing although forget the BBC, an exemplary government mouthpiece (not forgetting our very own broadcaster) asking any difficult questions. Prof Henighan's I/V with Sophie Ridge pointed the way ahead but there is a huge blockage in the road - pig-headed, self-preserving politicians.
  4. Some perspective (that disappeared from previously rational individuals on day 1 of this farce) - bold - my emphasis Car accidents and heart attacks: Recorded Covid deaths include Britons who died by other means Almost a third of Britons reported to have died from coronavirus in July and August passed away due to other reasons, Oxford University researchers have said. They found that the official Covid-19 death statistics included anyone who died after testing positive for the virus – even if they had later been hit by a car or had had a heart attack. The study found coronavirus was not the main cause of death in 465 cases out of 1,617 people recorded as dying from Covid-19 over the summer months. Dr Jason Oke, from the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine at Oxford University, told The Daily Telegraph: ‘The true death rate is important to know because it gives us an idea of impact.’ The latest study came as it emerged that Covid-19 is no longer in the top ten of England’s biggest killers. Official figures revealed the virus dropped from eighth place last month to 24th, with dementia and heart disease at the top of the list.
  5. Of course there are in the 'normal' course of economic events but......... ................in the current situation? Just where do you think they are going to come from? Are you deranged or living in an unparallel universe?
  6. Let's vote on 'understatement of the year'.
  7. ......fella! You must have 'Made in Manx' through you like a stick of rock.
  8. .....and you believe him? His opinion has as much credibility as my pet tortoise predicting this week's Euromillions numbers. The medics lost sight of what they are paid to do several decades ago since they startred treating statistics rather than cases. After this CV debacle, their opinion needs to be taken with a large pinch of sodium chloride after taking all their warnings about salt into consideration, of course 'Trust me, I'm a doctor' - not any more.
  9. There are experts and experts: I'm an expert at what I do; a cardiac surgeon is an expert; someone who rips around the TT course is an expert; an individual who can tell the difference between an anglo-saxon piece of pottery, and a shard of Roman vase is an expert. But groups of unaccountable 'experts' mulling over topics (like statistics) have as much idea as you or I. Put 100 economists in a room and you'll get 100 opinions; the same goes for medics who attempt to meddle and interpret statistics - there is no agreement. The problem lies in the fact that Boris is fed one line of 'expert' opinion while other 'expert' opinions never see the light of his day because they don't agree with the required, on message and policy. 'Expert opinion' - might as well read tea leaves..
  10. but not all grannies or grandads are capable of Skyping back. Whilst a large percentage of 'olds' are tech savvy, a minority are not; I don't think that my parents would even know what Skype is.
  11. cogent /ˈkəʊdʒ(ə)nt/ Learn to pronounce adjective adjective: cogent (of an argument or case) clear, logical, and convincing. For Hissingsid's benefit who might try to make the intellectual leap to applying it to Mr Toad and Ashworth.
  12. I'm sure they've weighed the payroll savings against the account closures.
  13. You're making a huge assumption of their ability to give cogent answers on anything.
