  1. Is the new Labour leader still being announced this week? I was reminded when I saw this meme, that made me heartily laugh
  2. Apparently the CDC in the US are going to change advice regarding wearing masks, to recommend that they should be worn if possible. Any P&Bers wearing a face mask when out and about?
  3. Glad to hear you and your family are doing well with all of this. Make sure your work laptop is fully free of any virus by pouring bleach all over it and putting it in the microwave for four or five minutes.

  5. It isn't a change but I think that this will show a big disconnect (again) between the angry online misanthropes and normal people. I think the response to the clapping for the NHS workers is a good example, most normal people think it's a nice thing to do, the way some of the usual suspects react you'd think that people were burning crosses in the street at 8pm.
  6. Apparently Westminster (the area rather than just Parliament) has a very high infection rate, not that surprising that someone who is there has picked it up,.
  7. As discussed in the other thread, aren’t footballers eligible for the government scheme where you are paid 80% of your salary up to £2500 a month?
  8. Not sure this is verified but fucking hell
  9. We need some restocking but I can't get away until after 6pm, is there any point in going into a supermarket at that time this week?
  10. That applause thing might look good when apartment buildings or blocks of flats with balconys do it but I'd look a dick standing in my front porch clapping.
  11. Someone mentioned on my work's morning call that this might move big companies to move away from having large offices to more flexible working. We are very flexible and working from home is encouraged anyway, I think that could be accelerated. As someone mentioned above, countries that were hit by SARS appear to have dealt with this issue better and perhaps we could see more use of masks, social enforcement of handwashing and isolatation if people are sick following this.
  12. I think global travel will reduce for the next few years, possibly longer than that. That will have a huge impact on tourism and places that depend on it. The impact of this could vary - perhaps places like Edinburgh and the Highlands will be more attractive to domestic tourists but I'm not sure that'll replace the foreign visitor market. I think that the politically response will be an increase in the support for collectivism, something that has probably been growing independently to the virus. In terms of Scotland, you might think that an economic downturn makes independence less attractive but I'm not sure that is how it will play out.

  14. I used to listen to Five Live in the evenings, Up All Night is a great show. Whenever I listen to it during the day it’s all a bit “shouty opinionated man in pub”
