For some reason I thought it was up to the local party members to “deselect” the person when they are guilty of a major transgression  of the law. No doubt there would then need to be a by-election and I guess it’s open to question whether she was guilty of a major breach of law. 
what is abundantly clear though is that she lacks any form of human morals.

@red vteci don’t know if it was Andy Burnham, I didn’t catch who it was or which city he was mayor of.

What is clear though is that we have MPs, Mayors (why do they think they are important, they are usually misguided soles with loads of mates and a big ego) and, in particular, members of the opposition party who seem intent on playing politics with people’s life’s just because they with want to be consulted with (read big ego’s) 

Thats why Scotland & Wales can implement measures almost immediately whilst in England the message that is sent out is “have a bloody good party next weekend before a decision is made”

Sorry, rant over🙄

I wasn’t allowed to say anything until today, but it's now okay for me to share that I have volunteered for the Covid-19 vaccine trials that a local Hospital are running in partnership with Pfizer. It

Well it appears we may have it - just heard a Doctor describe the symptoms and it matches ours 100% - not quite a cold and not quite flu. Carina is suffering a lot more than me, but in reality for us

UK Virus ALERT   The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent virus threat and have therefore raised their threat level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, level may be raised

Things are getting serious again now. Latest NHS England data shows 525 CV-19 hospital admissions on Tuesday 6 October. That’s similar to mid March when things really kicked off. In fact admissions doubled from 241 on 27 September to 478 on 4 October, so that’s within 1 week. The BBC are incorrectly reporting this doubling period on their News website as 2 weeks, so the rate of increase in hospitalisations is much worse than they are telling us. Batten down the hatches.

So the City takes the national govt to court as it says the lockdown is illegal AND unnecessary. They win against the National Govt!

So the National Govt announces a State Emergency and locks the City down anyway.

Look, is it just me or is there just a bit a cynicism that people/Gvts are using some of this for their own ends? I don't disagree that its serious here and things need to be done but this looks just like politicking to me!

Covid virus ‘survives for 28 days’ on hard surfaces.

Is it just me or should we have known this 29 days after the outbreak??

As ever - bbc reporting - clearly ignoring scientific evidence which shows the virus is killed by uv light - or sun/daylight. There’s a loads of different factors - but 28days appears to be the scientific absolute maximum that’s currently known about. 
 

scotland however wont be virus free faster - since the sun never comes out 👍

Actually @Barrykearley on this one (worth calling it out as an exception) the BBC did clearly state those bits of scientific evidence. They called out that some scientists think the surface transmission is not a big threat, the specifically stated it was an experiment in the dark and that UV is known to kill it etc. So for that bit they were balanced, just reporting that it was technically possible in lab conditions.

We could suggest that it's rather pointless to report it, but I guess if it isn't reported than people will somehow find out about it and not get the balanced picture. Another way of looking at it is, it's very much a non-story and they just needed content so had to report on it.

The headline certainly wasn’t reflecting of the facts in the full article though. No point in spoiling a good story with the truth.

Sadly this style of sensational reporting is more the norm now for the bbc rather than good quality rounded headlines

Weekly coronavirus cases double in Welwyn Hatfield 

to 41 - Population of Welwyn Hatfield, around 125,000, so 0.0% to 1 decimal place. - wow!

Beds occupied for the NHS area - 4, catchment population 600,000 - double wow!!

Article not open to comments unfortunately.

Well considering the UK Govt considers a rate of 20 cases per 100,000 to be the upper limit for allowing quarantine-free travel back from other countries, it looks like I won’t be holidaying in Welwyn Garden City any time soon with your 33 cases per 100,000! Seriously though that’s a relatively low number at the current time.

Sounds like the night of the walking dead there @ChrisJ it’s very possibly the most dangerous place on earth.  I bet it’s just like the set of “outbreak” with helicopters and the army in bio suits

Sounds like one of those electrostatic filters with UV light added would be a good addition /replacement to a MERV 14 filter for the HVAC house filter.

The East & North Herts NHS trust has had 79 patients in total admitted with this virus since March.

And this is a virus so deadly that you have to be tested to see if you have had it

To me that’s just usual negative swipe.

The headline should  have read - Covid virus ‘dies after 28 days in lab conditions’.

So with stricter local CV-19 measures being announced everyday, do we think that this second wave would not have happened (or at least not as quickly) if everyone had followed the previous rules? We got it down to a negligible level after the first wave and now seem to have thrown all that good work away, so here we go again.

Nothing to do with that,it's all the fault of Boris (according to Starmer)

I can’t help but think that Boris is not being tough enough on this and that the likes of Andy Burnham are just being irresponsible.

I hope that the likes of Burnham will have the guts to face up to the relatives of those who depart this world through this virus whilst he and others engage in their political games.

Perhaps if Andy Burnham had been as vociferous about people disobeying the rules Manchester wouldn't be in the position it is now

Daft thing is, all three of these Tiers are nothing like the lockdown we had for months earlier this year. Schools, Colleges and Universities will remain open, non essential shops will remain open, people will travel to work, people are free to walk around as they wish, the vulnerable can go out, you can play outdoor team sports, your missus can even take you out to a restaurant or treat you to a naughty night in a hotel!
 

We will pretty much all be in Tier 3 sooner or later, so we may as well just get on with it and try get it done. Otherwise there’ll soon be a Tier 4 added, similar to what we had last time.
