    Interesting.

    Hadn't seen this before:

    Exeter University research warns that Covid-19 cases could peak within four months and infect two-thirds of the country.

    How does that compare with ICL's much-maligned (here) predictions?

    Who decided that Cummings is a career psychopath? The only reference I've seen is from David Cameron, who was widely scorned as being an Oxbridge toff, and the usual suspects jumped on his previous behaviour. Suddenly he's to be taken seriously?

    Oh noes, inconsistency and confusion, I must blame Thatcher

    I can create reasons why it's reasonable, but they all sound a bit thin.

    The plane is Loganair who need the income, the ferry is government owned and doesn't have to worry about trivialities such as that.

    There's more crew to protect for longer on the ferry than on the plane.

    The plane's more expensive so so it's the toffs looking after their own.

    I could go on...

    Obviously we've not been following the deliberately ambiguous rules.
    As todayís death toll was 111 and the others date back to 26April and are as a result of different recording methods , obviously the rules arenít quite as ambiguous as you would like to think they are ..

    youre right it’s absolutely scandalous that the UK is diligently and honestly adding all the old deaths that can be attributed to covid 19 ,.after all, if you didn’t want to look bad, you might leave them out ..I’m pretty sure some countries are doing just that, but keep beating Boris after all it’s all his fault ..

    Look, SdF, how many times must we go over this
    IT'S NOT BORIS'S FAULT!!!!


    Wratty says so, therefore it must be true. So if you could stop reposting
    widely reported lies that are easily verified as fact, Wratty's blood pressure will thank you. So will Gedge's by the looks.

    Yrs
    A ranting old fart

    I think it’s your blood pressure ( and mental state) that you should be worried about ...you’re the one ranting and swearing at anyone that doesn’t align with your world view ..

    To me, ICL is International Computers Limited, maybe that's because I worked for the company for a few years.

    I hate TLAs. Maybe I'll have that printed on a T-shirt.

    He does show signs of it. And what's wrong with going to Oxford or Cambridge? I'd see those as good things. And there's nothing intrinsically wrong with being from a wealthy family.
