Next door to Church, end of Ward Rd. You go in the front door then straight downstairs. 

Ah, I know where you are! Been in Church a few times but never the pub below, even when I lived here in 2002/03

Not sure if it's just me but in the past 4 days or so I've noticed a big rise in people using mobile phones while driving their car.

Could go quite a while without spotting anyone but 5 times in the past couple of days i've seen folk with a phone right up to their ear driving one handed (one who could barely steer because of it) is this what people do in times like this? thinking the police won't bother as they have bigger issues?

It's not so much "bigger issues", it's more that the number of cuts made by the tories over the years has created a situation where they are fewer and further to be seen.

I can only predict that in a fortnight or so, the UK will be facing similar to what Italy is facing just now, but the folk who have been spreading it will lay the blame at the government by saying "we only did it because it was only advice. If you had made it law then we wouldn't have this problem". 

And to a certain extent they'd be correct, they've made a rip roaring c**t of this.

Wouldn't it be highly ironic that following the previously touted as healthy Mediterranean diet as the Italians do is bad for you whereas deep frying the f**k out of everything protects you from coronovirus...

No, as diet is not a transmission factor

That assumes UK is as badly prepared as Italy going forward. Italy has locked down and still the death count is through the roof. 

That's not to say the UK will be fine, but to just assume the UK and Italy are in the same position is very simplistic.

Diets that are high in fat seem to depress the immune response and thus increase the risk of infections. Reducing fat content in the diet can increase immune activity. This might not just affect infections but could also strengthen the type of immune cells, which can fight tumour cells

It won't, UK (Scotland included) is completely fucked, starting in a few days time. It's too late now to do anything, not that very much has been done anyway. 

 

I can't believe what I'm reading online from Scotland. People seem to think this is all a big jolly and its just like a school holiday. Hundreds of people are going to be dieing daily very soon. Maybe then Scotland will take this seriously. It seems the only way. 

 

Young people are not immune, statistics from Korea showed that the 20-29 age  group are actually the most likely to catch the virus. It will affect them very badly also, the only difference being that they have a better chance of not dieing.

Isle of Man has just done that.
They’ve brought in a law saying everyone who arrives on the island has to isolate for 14 days. Someone didn’t and has now been arrested. Punishment is to be either a £10,000 fine or a prison sentence.

 

 

The Isle of Man has a population of 85,000, one airport and one ferry terminal. They have a chance to keep the virus out entirely. That was never an option in a place like Scotland.

The fact that Milan and northern Italy has a high percentage of Chinese workers shows you just how important social distancing and testing is.
I also hope that Italy is worse because of this and it isn't really what everywhere will be like. Iran was bad and they have a small chinese community.
Possibly Iran's problem is a cover up. I read that if you look at the politicians effected then multiply this by the population then its half a million. Hopefully this is well off but lots of their politicians were unwell.

The first identified case in Northern Italy was an Italian who'd come back from Wuhan.

Chinese people don't spontaneously develop Covid-19.

My son was on a train a few weeks ago, and a stupid woman started giving a Chinese guy in a mask a load of shit. She was huckled by the police at the next station. Careless talk fuels zoomers.

That'll be that c***s license pulled there and then.

That's what these eejit owners are too thick to realise, council can suspend/remove their license with immediate effect if they think they have just reason to do so, and he could find himself barred from ever holding one again.

That's the owner's Ferrari parked outside. I'm sure it was paid for with entirely legitimate funds.

Someone on Twitter linked to a story about him already being in bother, and his licence being at risk. I wonder if he thought "fk out, let's go out with a bang".

Reminds me of a scene from the Woody Allen film Sleeper where the main character awakens from cryostat is and amongst other things discovers that the advice on healthy eating is the exact opposite of what it had been.

Yes it would be ironic if true but it is not true.

If this was an issue about clean water and food poisoning you might have a point but this pandemic is not like Cholera or Dysentery.  You get the infection from other people - not from what food you eat.
