Fairly packed the last few times I've been out there.

There are a few pubs in South London opened for takeaway and selling pints in plastic cups near the parks.
Wandsworth common was like a festival yesterday.

With the good weather over a bank holiday there is no chance of people staying in.

I am not sure those figures are strictly comparable given the reliability of the numbers recorded and how they are recorded  however excess deaths to the norm are readily comparable and the UK (who have made a mess of it) now is probably pushing 65K in excess of normal figures - 65K in a population of 65m
 
Ireland it was reported as still having the average number of deaths in the period from the beginning of this . I wonder how the other countries compare on straight excess death figures

Sweden is facing a massive recession the same as every other country is.
 
And by the looks of it will be no less susceptible to a second wave than every other country. It's definitely looking like their chosen path was a whole lot more to do with their constitution not allowing the imposition of a state of emergency (and therefore the ability to actually impose a lockdown even if they wanted to) during peacetime than any real scientific basis.

It’s pretty common knowledge already that thanks to Piers The Redeemer as linked in the video a few pages back.

Basically what they’ve done is tested 60,000 people, but then tested 40,000 of them twice to say they’ve done 100,000

3 out of the four could all be out of power due to their mishandling of it all. Even Putin is under pressure  


It would damage this forums' reputation

Jet2 are restarting international flights from 1st July.

Now it’s upto the countries whether to impose the mandatory 14 day quarantine or not.

As much chance there as anywhere else. LOL 

The deflection today in the gutter press was exceptional, even by their own low standards. Instead of any mention of the Arcuri, ahem, affair, we were treated to headlines that Steve Coogan's production company had the temerity to take advantage of the government's furlough scheme. Obviously this earth shattering news, that has presumably been known for weeks and is hardly news, needed to be told today!
How dare a horrible lefty luvvie use a government's scheme for exactly the reason it was set-up!

I hope to God he named it Peartree Productions

Their advertising is f**king irritating! Whatever that stupid f**king song was, it stuck in your head for hours afterwards. ****s.LOL
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Something about 'standing in a crowded room' and unnecessary whooping. I have vowed never to use Jet2 on principle because of it.

Dominic Cummings has been caught doing the ultimate Tory thing by driving from London to North East of England just 3 days after he supposedly contracted COVID from Boris/Hancock.

Pretty significant turn of events. What's the point in a lockdown when the man who's pretty much running the country is going around spreading it himself.

The point of a lockdown is, fairly obviously, to save people's lives. 

But there's one rule for everybody else, and another rule entirely for the Tory scum.

Tories never gave a sh*t about other people's lives.

Got a pint from the Althorpe today and sat out on the common. Jesus, it was lovely.

There's been quite a backlash already beyond the Westminster bubble. The arrogance and insouciance of DC will not help his case.0fficially the Government is supporting him and the PM regards him as an essential asset but he is widely loathed by many within the Cabinet never mind the disgruntled backbenchers with an axe to grind and other parties, particularly Labour and the SNP. Schnapps and Jenny Harries were less than entirely convincing on TV earlier in answering questions about it. DC has definitely undermined his own Government's position and he could be defenestrated yet.

Cummings will continue to run the Tory sh*tshow in the same way he has been. The very most that could happen (and I don't expect it will) is they'll come up with some sort of a John Delaney-style sideways fudge to take the heat off themselves. 

Nobody should be under any illusions that the Tories give not a single f**k. They've learned from their friends in the Trump regime. He'll be defended like Kavanaugh. 

If the Tories had protected care homes like they're protecting Cummings, nobody would have died.

Looks like we have ourselves our very own Dominic Cummings.
