And I quote :

"Thursday saw a change in the way NHS England and the Department of Health are reporting deaths.

The latest figures are for a 24-hour period, but Wednesday's were not - they were only for eight hours - from 0900 to 1700 on Tuesday 24 March.

Thursday's figures are for a full 24-hour period, from 1700 on Tuesday 24 March to 1700 on Wednesday 25 March.

So Wednesday's rise of 28 reported deaths and the 107 reported deaths on Thursday cannot be directly compared."


In other words, Copehead was exactly correct.


Seems unlikely :?

I was always of the cock up persuasion on this one. Even Johnson and Cummings aren't batshit enough to start down playing the number of deaths.

But it was rank stupidity not to make everyone aware that this was happening to preempt the "VICTORY!!!!" headlines in the usual suspects that have statistically undoubtedly add a few more souls to the death list.

Once again there is no obvious intelligence guiding us at the top of all this, just a desire to spin it in their favour as they react to things that makes Blair and Campbell look like angels.

He's self isolating.


How will we tell?

Ever since his lying nonsense about shaking hands with Corona Virus victims in hospital at the start of all this he has been conspicuous by his absence from the front line.

Bar the hypocritical cunt clapping for NHS workers outside number 10 last night; this is the last time he was clapping and cheering something to do with nurses:

The man is completely shameless, completely without conscience and an absolute cunt. Who said about him the only people who like him are those who don't know him?

Grace Dent in the Guardian:
I hope we remember how the supermarket staff really served us. It’s ironic how many of us slagged off these places for decades, told the masses to avoid them. Let’s all eat risottos of foraged acorns made with small-batch artisan butter from our bi-weekly farmers’ market! And then this happened, and the Aldi car park is full of Audis jam-packed with Super Noodles. It’s almost as if River Cottage never happened.
:lol:

Well I am not succumbing, I am doing Pan Fried Sea bass with Harissa and rose.

Only without the rose because Waitrose has run out of edible rose petals :o

I'm sorry, Count. What a nightmare.

Surely he's regretting the Republicans' systemic attack on the progress made from the 30s through the 70s and the . . . deep state, which has left the country ill-equipped to avoid widespread financial calamity and which will (ha ha!) lead to the resurrection of the New Deal and Great Society?

No, his wife's yoga class moved online and they had more people than ever!

I'm just off the phone with him. Don't know whether to spit or cry.

Right that's the final straw.

The Prime Minister is a thoroughly decent man and works from home tirelessly for this country.

For shame.

It is hard for me to assume the whole world (and my sports club) is shutting down (then getting sold off for pennies on the dollar) over what is basically a yearly bio-medical event. But that is what our media are telling us so it must be at least partly true. Smoke. Fire. However, I have shown you a few examples of things which contradict what our media are saying re Covid-19. The chart below is another example. It is a European mortality chart and the bottom most country is UK where you can see there were more deaths in Week 03 of 2118 than happening now during this fake IMO crisis. Were all the maddening measures of today taken in 2118? Don't thin' so, Lucy. If you can stop your eyes from rolling out of their sockets, look at the mortality rates in other places, especially at Europe's Ground Zero, Italy. Deaths were much higher in 2016 than now. I ain't buying it.

https://www.euromomo.eu/index.html

Intrepid Corona Cadets will click on the link and see this caveat re the current low-ish numbers of deaths and its implications.

Note concerning COVID-19 related mortality as part of the all-cause mortality figures reported by EuroMOMO

Over the past few days, the EuroMOMO hub has received many questions about the weekly all-cause mortality data and the possible contribution of any COVID-19 related mortality. Some wonder why no increased mortality is observed in the reported mortality figures for the COVID-19 affected countries.

The answer is that increased mortality that may occur primarily at subnational level or within smaller focal areas, and/or concentrated within smaller age groups, may not be detectable at the national level, even more so not in the pooled analysis at European level, given the large total population denominator. Furthermore, there is always a few weeks of delay in death registration and reporting. Hence, the EuroMOMO mortality figures for the most recent weeks must be interpreted with some caution.

Therefore, although increased mortality may not be immediately observable in the EuroMOMO figures, this does not mean that increased mortality does not occur in some areas or in some age groups, including mortality related to COVID-19.


Aside from the weaselly way the explanation is worded, even if all the data is not in, has that stopped our media from screaming the sky is falling?

Ah. I hadn’t heard that one before. I guess it ‘makes sense’.

It’s not just that these things are vile, they’re also completely barmy.

Never let it be said that I am not fair ... even to tories...

I got a press release from JCB this monrning saying that they were making housings for the Dyson ventilator at their cab plant in Staffs.

this is what they're making:

When they (or Dyson) get regulatory approval they go into full production (10,000 ordered).

I suppose it's a relatively straightforward design for their sheet metal shops. The complicated bits are inside of course.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.
