    • The coronavirus pandemic has thrown many countries into recession - but what exactly is it and how could it affect you? View the full article
    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings      
    • and when you think there have been around 3,000 confirmed new covid cases in the last 3 days ...   The only golf club shaped recovery is going to be by the coronavirus

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

So who cares about Red Ed getting the top Labour job?

 

Not me for one. I hope they all disappear into irrelevance for two generations for the damage they have done to this country.

I know what you mean, but we should all care really because this bloke might be the next Prime Minister. I doubt it, but it could happen.

This bloke's going to have his work cut out in my opinion.

 

For a start, he's yet another party leader who's never done a proper day's work in his life - a professional politician right down to his shoe laces. It's all very well people talking about "Tory toffs", but if those people look closely, they would find that neither Cameron, Clegg nor Milliband have anything in common with life the way most of us know it.

 

Milliband needs to tell us how he would deal with the deficit. If he opposes the cuts, he will have to tell us what he would put in place to deal with this problem. It will also be interesting to see how he deals with the Trades Unions, given that he has them to thank for his election as leader. I reckon that any hint from him that he agrees with Bob Crow et al will have most people running for cover.

Could you seriously imagine this bloke as prime minister? Reading all the blurb from the unions and the newspapers he seemed great on paper. Until he actually opened his mouth.

I'd never really liked David until I saw him on the news tonight. He was trying to get out of his hotel and had all the microphones and cameras and journalists in his face. All he would say was 'I'm on my way out'. One journalist said to him 'Are you on your way out Mr Milliband?'. It made me smile. And he turned round to face the camera with a big grin on his face. Bless.

"Mr Ed" for Prime Minister ??????????? I suppose an American sitcom horse has as good a chance of doing the job as any of them !!!!! lol.

 

Fred B ... I agree they are all pretty remote from real life. The two LibDems in my area are all for self promotion and publicity, it makes me sick every time I open the local paper and see their ugly faces on some promo shot. Mr Ed can say anything he wants about the deficit because the reality is that by the time of the next General Election the coalition will have put in place the measures, that have become necessary to correct their clusterf**k, and the decision will be do you punish them for doing so or elect the perpetrators of it and allow them to do it again. Do you really think that Mr Ed is going to bite the hand that feeds him? Oh yes you will hear many a word distancing himself from them but if given the chance to govern he would introduce measures to placate them because Labour's finances are shot to pieces and the only way to pay for elections is to divert public money through the unions so they can money launder it and recycle it to Labour. The only losers again are us.

 

David Miliband.... oh yes that guy that when Foreign Secretary lied and said that British soldiers / intelligence agents were not involved in torture. He and his masters should be at The Hague on trial for war crimes.

 

How on earth has this great nation come to be such a pit? Oh yes Tony Blair and his sucking up to American Presidents and may other cr*p political decisions.

There isn't a serious choice for anyone, they're all as bad as each other. The only good thing to come out of the ConDem alliance is that political reform should be on it's way soon! (although I expect the Conservatives and Labour politicians will fight hard to stop this!)

Do you really think so locutus? I think they will stitch us up yet again. The conservatives will never allow a change in the voting system, and I suspect that the British public won't want a change either. Let's face it when the mood change occurs the power of democracy is awesome. I think that the ConDems will change the boundaries again and change the ability to vote in the party that is dominant after the boundary change and that won't be Labour because when they 'even' up the numbers in the constituencies that will not favour Labour. Another change may well be a reduction in the number of Westminster MP's from Scotland. After all does Scotland really need all that representation when they are semi independent already? Especially as Europe dictates all our laws now in any case.

I looked closely into the number of votes vs the number of seats gained, and Labour lost a far higher percentage of votes over the number of seats they lost, purely because the current government draws the battle lines. I do feel we need to reform the political system, and the Lib Dems have been asking for decades! I hope they get their way with this, and Joe Public decides that the current system is stale and needs modernizing.

"because the current government draws the battle lines." wasn't that what Blair did after the '97 General Election, redrew the battle lines so he kept Labour in for 13 years??

Exactly, and the conservatives did before that.... stale and old. Their needs to be political reform.
