  1. Fair enough, I'll change it to : Highest death rate in Europe. 2nd worst economic recession in Europe UK Government response : "Hey, look at those asylum seekers" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_cat_strategy *edit* The point I was trying to make was not about the deaths or economy, it's about how the government are using the migrants as a distraction.

  3. Wouldn't surprise me if Trump awards a vaccine licence to Domestos.
  4. According to the figures provided by Arnold - after nine years of increasing, there is one year of a drop. Apparently this is evidence of a downward trend? I must confess it's a few years since I studied statistics but I didn't realise I was that far out of touch with the latest statistical terminiology.
  5. Yep, I can see after the transition period, the French just waving them through. What would they have to gain by hindering them?
  6. There is a lot of stuff that people don't use but they have to pay for, childless people paying tax for schools is one example. I can't believe people are getting worked up over, what is essentially, an optional tax. Don't want to pay it? Then don't have a TV or use any of the services that require a licence. It's not rocket science.
  7. Imagine if we had thousands of illegal migrants desperate to get to France - imagine the uproar if we tried to stop them from leaving? Anyway, can't see France doing much to stop them after 31/12/20 - think they're only doing lip service at the moment as we're in our transisition period but once that's over then it' s not their problem any more. Law of unintended consequences I guess 🤷‍♂️
  8. Astronomy got boring though when they changed the pronunciation 😂😂
  9. I'd rather pay the money that would be spent on parking, on postage with Internet shopping and it gets delivered to my house. I suppose I'm lucky in a way though as I live in Woodseats so I can go to Chesterfield and pay 80p to stay in the donut car park if I need something that day. Straight-forward to get to and cheap. If you make things too expensive or complicated people will find alternatives.
  10. Anyone can get a test if they want one - routinely testing the whole population (60odd million) is unlikely. Just say you've developed a cough if you want one, there is no pre-screening. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing-and-tracing/get-a-test-to-check-if-you-have-coronavirus/
  11. One of the more plausible explanations I've heard for deferring the points deduction is that both Birmingham and Derby face losing points as well. Assuming they lose 12 points as well and all points deductions were applied this season, Wednesday and Birmingham would be relegated but Derby wouldn't. Basically, the same offence/penalty would impact two of the three clubs much more significantly. But it's all hearsay and rumours at the moment.
  12. 16 years for one and 13 years for the other 2. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-46544144
  13. In possibly the least surprising move ever, the Don is mooting the idea of postponing Novembers election. If he delays it past noon on the 20th January, does Nancy Pelosi (Speaker of the House) become acting president? As Trump and Pence's term has expired. *edit* no appears to be the answer from what I've read, as there would be no House as they are all up for election in November as well. What a mess!
  14. Technology should be there to assist the officials but at the end of the day, the referee's decision should be final. It's part of the game in my opinion.
  15. Never tried it, but it looks like you go to your name (top right ish if you're on a PC) , click on it and select profile (about halfway down). You should then see your picture at the top left and if you click on it, there appears to be an option to change it.
