Can see the death toll reaching 4 figures the way it is going on


I suspect the 4 figures will be reached in a week or 2 :sad:

I'm in the unusual position of agreeing with comrade Tim on his f'cast. :shock:

i'm not going looking for the linkbut one leaked report had 20,000 deaths of being a 'good outcome' with a distinct possibility of the death numbers could be at least 10 times that amount. :doh:

I'm assuming the optimistic figure was based on the entire population following 'expert' advice But sadly we already know many aren't :oldgit:


Now I have :injured1: Due to the actions of a significant minority I seriously fear the death toll will be much higher :doh:

What we saw last weekend we'll never know for sure how many people will die in the coming weeks :dunno:

One inescapable fact, many could & should have been prevented :spank:

This could well just be a parking space for those waiting to be transferred to the mortuary :chopper:

Jesus, I'm such a fookin ray of sunshine :oldgit:

If yer fed up, board, you might find this interesting :biker: I watched it yesterday on the France 24 Sky 512 where you certainly get a broader picture about whats going on in other countries. :mrgreen:

Their reporting about the UK I wouldn't describe as inaccurate but certainly selectively not entire :Isay:

As I recall Macron voiced disapproval about us keeping schools open but then followed us in re-opening some for the same reason we did. :spliff: The article makes it difficult to figure out a timeline due to lack of dates :beglee:

I agree, the police should be consistent, as in constantly coming down as hard they can on mindless fooks who show total disregard for the safety of others. :Hi-Guy:

I saw 4 teenagers walking side by side yesterday evening & within a minute a car full went pissing pass with an idiot boy racer at the wheel :WTF:

Somerset seem to be luckier than some at the moment with 63 confirmed cases out of a population of 559,399, roughly 1 every 9000 :Isay:

Devon roughly 1 every 6000 but its probably an older population with so many retiring to that county, we have some obviously in parts of Somerset :beglee:

Testing, testing, testing, fookin testing, sick of hearing it :Hi-Guy:

Yes, test the front line staff & those in hospital, nobody else needs to be tested at this stage :WTF:

Track & trace was needed at the start & will be needed again someway down the line for sure but not now. :biker:
