Re: Coronavirus

Till is in intensive care apparently. One news report I just saw says he is "at risk of death" Scary times Rammstein have reported that whilst Till was in ICU for one night, he tested negative for Covid19 which is good to hear. Just shows how horrible the media is these days on trying to ...

Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

Just because you are free to do something doesn't automatically mean you are free to do anything. The rule of thumb is so long as it doesn't hurt others. That is why every single right in the Convention is subject to restrictions and for good reasons with the exception of freedom from torture which...

Re: Coronavirus

What's the chances of all these famous people getting it. Makes me think it's much more widespread than they think and a lot of people have it without symptoms. The mortality rate between countries varies greatly, from as low as 0.2% in Iceland. I reckon it's not much more deadly than normal flu, j...

Re: Coronavirus

Since the counting began, the new coronovirus has increased the normal number of deaths (1,643 per day) in the UK by about 0.9%, and that's assuming it was the main factor in all the deaths attributed to it. The increase for Italy is, very approximately, 12.8%. One of the big issues in Italy is tha...

Re: Coronavirus

A more accurate estimate for Italy's raised death rate since the first one was recorded: 10.5%. It's now 1% for the UK. But some of those deaths would have occurred anyway, so those are inflated numbers. This is peanuts compared to the Black Death which wiped out about 40% of all European population...

Re: The rather morbid celebrity RIP Thread.

Terry Jones was my favourite Python (though I like them all). I think his humour was the second most surreal after Terry Gilliam's and before Michael Palin's. Chapman, Cleese and Idle were more towards the conventional end of comedy, but still pretty silly.

Re: Bands Changing Musical Style

I think Manowar have just about had enough variety to justify each new album (the re-recordings aside) although they did start repeating lyrical phrases. Alice Cooper, from Nightmare onwards, has often incorporated trendy sounds into his albums but has never lost his essential character. I suppose a...

Freedom of Movement isn't as unrestricted as the right-wing media suggest (or at least, it doesn't have to be): https://ukandeu.ac.uk/we-can-control-eu-migration-we-just-havent-done-it/ There is one section (article 8) of the EU Human Rights Law signed away by Brown in the Lisbon Treaty that gives ...

The tingling in my arm and hand has defintely improved after 3 1/2 weeks, but still noticable, especially in bed in certain positions and when I bend down to pick something up.

Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

https://i.servimg.com/u/f45/19/71/28/23/didn_t10.jpg Labour's next leader should not whinge about Brexit, not say and do unpatriotic things and adopt a sensible immigration policy. Then they would win back a lot of seats at the next election, although I think the Cons will still have a working majo...

Which bands have changed their formula too much, too little and just about the right amount?

Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

There probably is more distortion of 'Corbynism' than against the Tories, especially all this 'Venezuela' stuff. But Labour don't help their own cause. If they limited their renationalisation programme to, say, water and prisons, scrapped plans to give back power to unions and matched the Tory immig...
