    Corona Virus

    I wonder why Japan would fudge the figures now? It's not like they have the Olympics on their mind for the time being any more, after all.
  3. Statistically yes, in reality, no. Corbyn was only voted for by the young in this election because off how weak the conservatives were, not by his own aptitude as a politician.
  4. Isloch, if you squint, have an angry fox as their logo and a Nigerian in defensive midfield, play in blue with a yellow away kit and with two wins are a loss are edging towards the champions league places. I'll be following them with an eye on Slutsk and Dynamo Brest this season. https://us.soccerway.com/teams/belarus/fk-isloch-minsk/15569/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FC_Isloch_Minsk_Raion Edit: Isloch are playing Dynamo Brest this sunday. My first ever match and it's a derby. Amazing.
  5. Quite. Guess he should burn his Masters in economics from the LSE too. Absolutely ten a penny, those things...
  6. If he's that shite at lying then the truth must be pretty bad for him to try and hide it. There are ways of escaping a driving ban but I think he's sealed the deal there

    Corona Virus

    Same with Iran. Japan was notorious for barely testing anyone. They'll be plenty of deaths there that never would have even been tested for. The South Korean government were slaughtering them for it a couple of months back.
  8. Classic movie, in full, on YouTube, always loved this to bits even though it spawned a load of awful follow on movies and a decent enough series.
  9. whats this based on? Labour did about 55% with the under 30s (up a whopping 20% on soft left Milliband and centerist Brown in 2015 and 2010) and the tories did about 22% (https://yougov.co.uk/topics/politics/articles-reports/2019/12/17/how-britain-voted-2019-general-election). if the young were that turned off and wanted a centrist they could have voted Lib (who got about 11% of the under 30 vote). Labour face many, many challenges. But being too radical for young people certainly isn't one of them.
  10. I fully believe that both Japan and China have covered up / artificially lowered their death rates.
  11. Probably only played a handful of games as most of the time he is suspended.
  12. I was sorry to read that the singer Marianne Faithfull is in hospital with coronavirus-induced pneumonia. But she's reportedly stable and responding to treatment.... Get well, Marianne! I only know a little of her material, but what I've heard I've always liked. I might have to get her last album, which passed me by at the time but got good reviews - the couple of tracks that I listened to were very good. She always comes across as an interesting but decent person in interviews, too, after a pretty turbulent life.
  13. As I wait for an emergency delivery of books to get through, I've been rummaging through the bookshelf for fresh reading material. Now some would say this is a bit dated. I find it delightful however, it's been like opening a time capsule. As a fan of Koestler, I'd heartily recommend his novel 'Darkness at Noon. Also any of his autobiographical writings. A Hungarian Jew, educated in Austria. He embraced Zionism at university and travelled to Palestine in the 1920's. The 1930's saw him moving to Wiemar Berlin where he joined the communist party. His story then crisscrosses Europe and includes being sentenced to death by Franco's forces during the Spanish Civil War. The outbreak of WWII sees him escape mainland Europe and eventually find himself a home here in Britain. An outspoken critic of Stalinist Russia, the 1950's found him writing articles & essays, some of which are included within this book. I bought it years ago from a second-hand bookshop. Many of the essays & articles detail Europe's political situation. They discuss the liberal west's response to totalitarianism, European political & economic integration, British isolationism and the British Labour party's refusal to accept any supranational authority dominated by non-Socialist governments. Historically very interesting, but like I say, all very dated!?
  14. 50,000 hours of community service should do it.
  15. Also she is part of the "way too left to be appealing to the majority" set.....probably...

    I really hope his excuse was a lie because I don't think I can deal with that level of stupidity.
  17. Because all ministers and shadow ministers have a history in the field they become ministers in
  18. I read that. What the hell are people going on about? He seems to be a perfectly normal-looking bloke to me, anyway.....as if that mattered in the first place.
  19. BREAKING NEWS: Two people found sunbathing in Scotland today have tested positive for hypothermia.
  20. Edstone Milliband back in the shadow cabinet for his lifelong expertise in Business. Oh.
  21. Long Bailey comes across as actually thick. At least Starmer is clever.

    Corona Virus

    I had to go to the shop this morning. First time into the scary outside world since Wednesday and there was a group of of about four people just hanging around outside the bloomin' doorway. I waited for them to go but they weren't going anywhere. I think ignorance and stupidity is the biggest cause of infection in this country.
