The UK’s current number of daily deaths from coronavirus is lower than the UK’s current average daily number of deaths from abortion.

I walked through yesterday and there were 10 people about 200 yards apart each. Not only is this shite ruining us –they are trying to push to see how much we will take. We need a new Party to fuck over the Tory trash without giving ZaNu a chance. Bloj will be ruined and there are no replacements worth shite. Plus their money-printing and general let-Daddy-State-fix-it One Nation capers will lead to a dire and steadily worsening situation. Tailor-made for leftist scum to take advantage of. A reckoning is coming soon for the UK’s people and political garbage. We can only pray what emerges will be better. dearieme April 3, 2020 at 3:14 pm philip spells “philip” correctly, Mr W. DocBud April 3, 2020 at 3:32 pm Politicians all over the world are just loving this, as are their Gauleiters and brown shirts. Sadly, large numbers of the population are demanding even more restrictions or are enthusiastically dobbing in their neighbours. My daughter’s friend lives in a household of 8 with three generations under one roof. They were enjoying dinner all together on their deck which faces the street and actually had people photographing them in order to dob them into the filth.

Scaled up to the UK population that would be about 150,000 per year. And we are surrendering our liberty and trashing the economy for a few tens of thousands in one year. Bongo April 3, 2020 at 8:44 pm I’m coming round to the Ecks view. Not so much because the State is the one with the emergency powers and the public doesn’t have the emergency power ( i.e. the right to own a gun ) to stop them. More because if this thing needs to rip through say 50 million not vulnerable in the next 9 weeks so we have herd immunity before we turn psycho and/or suicidal, and it might have gotten to less than 5 million so far. The the controls need to come off, schools need to restart, restaurants need to re-open, and Varadkar needs to stick up a hard border if he has a problem with this. And the NHS would still cope, just, with the surge. Which is what they are paid for. Anecdatum, I like running, and jogged across 6 lanes of the frigging M1 yesterday around mid-day – a footpath that was severed when it was built but the public path is still marked out. This is ridiculous. PJF April 3, 2020 at 9:02 pm Varadkar needs to stick up a hard border if he has a problem with this. We need to stick up a hard fucking border if it’s so bad that we can’t buy some petunias or a fucking lottery ticket.

In the devolved administrations, no statistically significant excess all-cause mortality for all ages was observed for Northern Ireland and Wales in week 13 and for Scotland in week 11 2020 All-cause death registrations (ONS), England and Wales – In week 12 2020, an estimated 10,645 all-cause deaths were registered in England and Wales (source: Office for National Statistics).

OTOH, the GBP, like ghostly teenagers, gloomily claps healthcare workers, torn as it is between Boxer the horse and Kip’s Rule.

It’s an opinion that’s being echoed by Senior Surgeon, Niall Eames and former Police Officer, Norman Brennan. . While Niall Eames is urging the public to steer clear of any unnecessary activities that could add further strain to our already overloaded A&E departments . Norman Brennan is warning that police won’t hold back on issuing fines for those found to be flouting the rules https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yQTrd7lx1E Left “don’t do” is now way OTT and farcical. Now is the time for sheeple to rebel and do what they want. Refuse to speak to plod or accept fine, they can’t arrest & lockup everyone SadButMadLad April 4, 2020 at 7:03 am @Evident – “Refuse to speak to plod or accept fine, they can’t arrest & lockup everyone” If you refuse to speak to the police they can’t make a determination as to whether your trip is essential or not. Just have a shopping bag in your hand and keep quiet. And you can’t be arrested for not giving your details as that is only required to give a FPN and they can’t give that till they determine that you are doing something not essential. Which by the way is a subjective test. Something essential to one person, like vape liquid, is not essential to another, say a health freak vegan. CJ Nerd April 4, 2020 at 8:59 am We also need to wonder just how correct the figures are. There’s a story here of how 14 people died but weren’t included in the national figures, because of “an administrative error”: https://www.itv.com/news/anglia/2020-04-03/fourteen-coronavirus-deaths-at-ipswich-hospital-were-not-reported-due-to-an-administrative-error/ Bloke in North Dorset April 4, 2020 at 9:11 am CJ Incompetence runs both ways.
