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: 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%.

Necessity of a Smart-Phone

I wondered how essential people now feel these things are.

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: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

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 ...

Mustaine's conditition was probably this:

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...

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...

Re: The Health 'n' Fitness Thread

I've been getting tingling in my left arm and hand when I move my head back. It looks like it could be a trapped nerve or slipped disk. I don't know whether to go to the doctor or not, because I just don't like doing. Anyone else had this? Yes - mainly in the first two fingers and thumb and occasio...

Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

I don't like any party's key policies enough to vote for any of them, but the Cons are the least worst . Labour are being too ambitious economically and they are borderline loony on defence and immigration. It's been pointed out that Labour have only ever been elected when they've moved to the cent...

Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

It's looking like 5 more years of a Conservative government, then 5 more after that if Labour insist on having a woman leader after Jeremy Corbyn. Why would having a female leader make a difference? I didn't mean that Labour couldn't have a good female leader in theory - just that the ones now bein...

That's Death metal...I was looking forward to seeing her all corpse painted up....never mind
It sounds more like black to me. Satyricon or something. The vocals at least.
