  1. Boris loves shutting them up when they are asked questions at his press conferences. All they have to do is stand there and look scientific.
  2. 4. If she had been tested the first time around she probably would have tested positive. Does seem a long time though.
  3. Let me die a youngman's death not a clean and inbetween the sheets holywater death not a famous-last-words peaceful out of breath death When I'm 73 and in constant good tumour may I be mown down at dawn by a bright red sports car on my way home from an allnight party Or when I'm 91 with silver hair and sitting in a barber's chair may rival gangsters with hamfisted tommyguns burst in and give me a short back and insides Or when I'm 104 and banned from the Cavern may my mistress catching me in bed with her daughter and fearing for her son cut me up into little pieces and throw away every piece but one Let me die a youngman's death not a free from sin tiptoe in candle wax and waning death not a curtains drawn by angels borne 'what a nice way to go' death Roger McGough
  4. Well, we've certainly all read and heard enough about it all over the place. No lack of information here.
  5. No, they look at the lists to see who that person has been in contact with. That's a vast amount of paperwork to deal with, apart from the problem of people giving false names. There is no electronic database that you can search, unless they scan all those hand-written lists into a computer.
  6. I'm sure there are a lot of people who sign themselves into restaurants under the name of Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck. Or John Smith.
  7. Germany is still using pen and paper, there is no app. There is no way they can collect such detailed information.
  8. Cummings missus has already been reported to the Press Council for the piece she wrote for the Spectator about the Cummings family's experience with Coronavirus which omitted some important details (like Durham). Apparently she once won a journalism prize for a report about driving a car across Texas. London to Durham would have been a doddle for her.
  9. People do not mistrust democracy, but they do have every right to hold the government that the democratic process has landed the country with. The vote may have been lost, but the arguments are just as valid as before and nobody has a democratic obligation to suck it up.
  10. True, but the government still has to get the economic self-harming done right in the middle of the worst recession since the 1930s. Brexit and Covid will both damage the economy.
  11. The rules are applied by the 16 individual states. I live in Baden-Württemberg, which is strict, but right on the border with Rheinland-Pfalz (lax) and Hessen (even laxer). We went to Hessen at the weekend. Presumably individual local authorities would decide to close their shops and schools if need be. There would probably be no restriction on travel, but who knows? I admit it is very complex scenario, and I'm just as clueless as the next man.
