I have seen a video of Biden who wants to make masks compulsory probably for always just to be safe.

Seems I remember someone promising us we'd be tired of winning so much. How long have we been on top of the CoV-19 stats? No, Americans aren't just tired of all this 'winning,' they're dying from all this 'winning.'

Listen, Daddy. Teacher says, 'every time a car alarm bleeps, into heaven a demon sneaks.'

Boris wants to follow Roosevelt as a model to recover , this is a disaster, instead he should be following my hero Warren Harding , the roaring twenties indeed.

No wonder you like Trump, your hero is a guy whose lover was paid to stay quiet by the Republican Party, who died after only 2 years as president and yet managed to become embroiled in the biggest presidential scandal, Teapot Dome, the country had experienced.

Also, like Trump, one of the worst-regarded Presidents of the past century. I presume cipp's other favorites are probably GW Bush and Nixon, and if he knows much about 19th century US politics I'm sure he's a Buchanan/Andrew Johnson man.

Not sure about Trump as in some respects he is to the left of Biden. Trump may well lose the election due to this crisis, but Biden may not even make it to January or only as a shell really. Too ill to do debates I am going to expect. As for The roaring twenties, the economic policies were correct, I wasn’t talking about individual behaviour. As regards that let the person with no sin cast the first stone.

My favourite website is by Toby Young, here he proves that the decision to lockdown Leicester is wrong . He completely puts a good case for not having lockdown at all so is to be commended. What a dreadful shower this government is, but still better than Corbyn, that’s the trouble, what a Terrible choice we had. Socialism With Boris or communism under Corbyn. Two people over 80 might be saved by further ruining people’s lives in Leicester causing more deaths and problems. I would forecast this would cause more deaths than it will save.

My great-great-uncle tested positive for the virus today. He lives in Arizona (from NY like me and the rest of my family) and he's 73. He was going out regularly with no mask despite diabetes and obesity. I don't know him very well, but my grandmother (his niece who is older than him) will be devastated if he has a bad outcome, but hopefully will scare her into staying home considering she's even older and less healthy.

There is a nice cartoon in the Telegraph. Pubs and hairdressers reopen Saturday here. A woman arrives home with a terrible haircut saying her hairdresser had been in the pub for hours... :D

Is firing all your employees and rehiring (some of) them three months later really job creation? Because, that's what I think is most likely happening here.

JVV is probably right but there is a lot of churn and still a lot unemployed.

But for young people the risk is really really low now in the Uk. So they should go to the pub unless they have underlying serious health conditions. I have so much work I am now doing overtime on Saturday, but might go to a pub on Sunday, no problem.

Pubs can open from 6 am but most won’t, but apparently a few hairdressers opened at midnight, I have booked haircut for later this month. Chancellor Says we almost have a duty to go on holiday or go to the pub or restaurant.

It’s Trim-dependence day according to the Mail. :rolleyes:

I had a meeting at work yesterday about how we will organize things in September when all students can come to school all day, but they have to keep 1.5 m distance from adults. I still have no idea how we will manage this. Teachers can't walk through hallways at the same time as students this way, because there's not enough room. Classrooms are roughly 40 m2 with 30 students, so it's almost impossible to stand in front of the classroom. How can I help students individually if I'm not even allowed to walk through the classroom?

Children and adults under 65 have minimal risk anyway. So that 1.5 metre rule is not at all necessary in schools and is ridiculous.

I think we should keep distance where possible with strangers, like in stores etc...
But if 1.5 m results in decreasing quality of education, I believe we shouldn't be so strict. Just as long as people with fever and/or runny nose etc... stay at home.
