Yeah, I guess if he was well behaved thay wouldn't want him to stay, a good lad would besmirch the Dartfud reputation.

Makes me MAD !!!

"Greater Manchester Police has warned people not to breach lockdown rules over Easter after it had to break up 660 parties last weekend.

Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said "each and every one of us need take this seriously".

There were 1,132 coronavirus-related breaches reported between Saturday and Tuesday, the force said.

That included 494 house parties - some with DJs, fireworks and bouncy castles - and 166 street parties."

Those bastards need naming and shaming.

The c**ts that licked their hands in a supermarket then wiped them over fruit, vegetables and door handles should get twenty years minimum for terrorism, because that’s what it is; biological bloody terrorism! :angryfire: :angryfire:

I dare say the situation in Greater Manchester is echoed elsewhere, and it's only going to get worse over Easter.

In addition to the field hospitals, they need to build holding areas guarded by soldiers for these knobheads PDQ.

Does make grim reading.

We have now overtaken China for confirmed cases.

I seriously doubt the validity of a lot of the figures though.

Yes. The 'confirmed cases' info is all over the place, depending on the level of testing and the honesty of your government.
I just saw tonight on John Campbell's update that the Chinese have locked down parts of their NE border with Russia, because of re-infection due to Russians crossing the border .. yet the Russian infection rate is supposed to be quite low... !

again, why, because you don't want them to be correct?

Well I think he's got a point, given that in most countries, the only people getting tested are those who come into hospital very ill, and a fraction of the health service staff.
We are waiting for an initial study by Porton Down, that has assessed either 600 or 900 randomly selected people, to try & find out roughly what the real infection rate has been.

Seems that the "official" figures don't count those who die at home, or in old age homes. Presumably because cause of death cannot be verified due to "underlying health issues" ?

I've read 2 reports one says 1000 nursing home deaths, the other said 2600.
Tonight's news says it's in 2000 nursing homes so the deaths may be much higher ?
