Allinson said before they went that they'll let students home for Christmas, just to make sure to have your travel notification service thingy set up so that you can come back with a landing card if things start to change rapidly.

China also produces a lot of good stuff. See Foxconn. Honda and Yamaha do a notable amount of manufacturing there too. Half of the art of chinese manufacturing is specifying which grade of quality you want. You can always save money by cutting corners or spend a bit more for reliability.

Indeed.  But the majority of it is shite. 

Flooding the Western world with it.  At least Trump had the sense to make Americans pay the tat they import:thumbsup:

Can you guys start a separate thread titled "Jersey is ace - oh no it isn't" and leave this one to a discussion on IOM and the coronavirus?

Ratio of admissions to deaths is not that different, testing is obviously out due to the massive capacity increase like just about everywhere in the world.    The current UK situation is impact

It's a safe place right now because of the Manx people, not the Manx politicians. None of us want to be "the person who brought it back" so we isolate and make sure we don't transmit the virus by bein

I see the UK gov. is pushing the consequences of ,'long covid'. Wonder why?

It’s all getting a bit weird now. Post viral syndrome is a well known effect of serious infections anyway without them trying to build fake science specifically about long-covid.

 People are starting to question the measures being implemented and asking is it proportionate so they need to come up with a new thing to scare people into following the rules.

I've never been comfortable with the whole protect the nhs. The nhs is there to protect us. We get sick we go to hospital. The decimation of the nhs for the past decade is coming home to roost.

Makes you wonder what’s really going on doesn’t it? Rather than the economy losing billions or trillions through lockdowns, why not spend a tenth of that increasing hospital capacity and let everyone who wants to carry on with their livelihoods?

If you read about how Singapore instilled its new economic model and broke down its residents and its workforce to be competitive (ie, work for nothing to increase corporate profits) you might just have stumbled on the UK post Brexit template and Covid at first glance very much seems to be a helpful tool in breaking down peoples wills and future expectations. Personally I’d prefer to see riots in the streets now from people who aren’t prepared to put up with this shit otherwise it’s only going one way. Everyone pushed out of a job and under the protective arm of the state who will look after them as compliant citizen with no other options.

That was Lord Sumption's argument, that and undue interference in cases civil liberties at the very outset.  But he has been poo, poo'd.

He is a poo-poo.

"Protect the NHS" is more slogan-y than "take measures to mitigate the number of concurrent hospitalizations so we don't run out of breathy-good-make-feel-nices"

Already been done with the Nightingale hospitals which are mothballed.

Interesting question from Clare Barber yesterday, caught Howie out after saying they followed Medical experts advice on borders!

The Chief Minister stated that Public Health were part of the group involved in developing the borders framework. Yet in an email that I received from the Director of Public Health relating specifically to Stage 4 of the borders plan, she stated that the Public Health Directorate was not asked to provide any assessment or advice to inform the decision regarding the borders plan.
Could the Chief Minister confirm just how involved Public Health have been and are in developing our pandemic plans?

he tried to bluster way out saying they are at all meetings etc but it’s basically bollocks
