  1. I have a weeks holiday, so I might play the latest expansion since I havent bought it
  2. Well this is a good idea in principle, it only helps out for a short time, many a month or 2. Also sending all those cheques out and thus having all those people going to the bank is not a great idea for slowing the spread
  3. Even in warmer climates it is still spreading, just look at Australia where temperatures are in the mid 20 C range. Also even if the warmer weather does help, the southern hemisphere is heading towards winter.
  4. Not saying it is true, just it would not surprise me. So the latest advise from Boris is to avoid unnecessary contact with other dont go to pubs, restaurants, cinema etc, yet the schools and universities are to stay open. How does this make any sense. The secondary school I went to has over 1500 pupils and is 1 or 3 that size where I live, surely this is a mass gathering.
  5. I wont not bee surprised to find out that it was his own business that would get the exclusive rights, so he can make a fortune off of it.
  6. So apparently the Trump administration offered large sums of money to a German company working on a vaccine so the the US would have exclusive rights to the vaccine https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/mar/15/trump-offers-large-sums-for-exclusive-access-to-coronavirus-vaccine What is wrong with these people
  7. The whole herd immunity plan is based of the premise that you cant get reinfected, but there are reports of people in China testing positive after recovering. So either these people had not fully recovered, are the outliers that can get reinfected or maybe herd immunity wont work. A lot of lives will be lost in this massive gamble by the government Also a bunch of scientists in the UK have written an open letter saying the policy will risk more lives than necessary https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-51892402
  8. Johnson's plan for 60% to get infected for herd immunity, which is just insane, will have a devastating effect on our economy in the long term. Focus on slowing the spread, and saving lives. One the number of infected swamps the NHS the death rate will rise as there will be some that could have survived with medical help but wont be able to get it. Slowing the spread could minimise the impact on the economy
  9. The US has a much larger landmass than both Germany and Iran combined, US Land mass 9.834 million km² Germany land mass 357,386 km² Iran Land mass 1.648 million km² It is possible that the virus will spread quicker in more densely population countries like Germany and Iran
  10. Boris deserves the flak. Not stopping the football matches was a bad decision. Thankfully the FA's have decided to do so. Well the is not a significant risk in large gathering, having 500 people means that you need paramedics on had, taking them away from were they are needed. The governments plan seems to be prioritising the economy over lives
  11. The head immunity idea is utter bullshit, it will lead to many unnecessary deaths. The aim for 60% herd immunity, with a death rate of 0.7% (this is the rate seen in South Korea) will lead to around a quarter of a million deaths in the UK. That is unacceptable as a policy for any government
  12. At least he can read an autocue for almost 10 minutes, and still getting things wrong
  13. If only the US had a team that was setup specially to deal with pandemics, some sort of response team, oh wait he got rid of that in 2018
  14. Why has Trump not been tested yet, he has now been pictured with someone that is infected. Ivanka has also been pictured with someone that is infected. the arrogance of people like Trump is spreading this virus.
  15. Is it meant to be an achievement to read for less then 10 minutes
  16. The problem is the Trump has spent the past week or so playing this down, saying it is not a big problem, rather than getting ahead of this from the off. Also I hope he gets him self tested as he has had direct contact with people that are now self isolating, included one that had to self isolate on Air Force One. He should be setting an example
  17. They have opted to pay for continued support . Well this is costly it gives another 3 years to spread the cost of upgrading to Windows 10. There is also the issue of software that may not run on Windows 10. We already have to use a virtual desktop running an older version of Windows for some software as that is a cheaper option than trying to make it work on newer versions of Windows. I just hope that when they do upgrade they go for the 64 bit version and then upgrade the PC's with more RAM as only having 4GB sucks
  18. Not updated them according to this post, dated 05/02/2020 https://help.standingstonegames.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002036807-What-are-the-system-requirements-for-LOTRO- Also you can still use Windows 7 just without any updates, and businesses can pay for another 3 years of cover with the cost rising each year per computer. My company is still using Windows 7 and the only reason my department is getting an upgrade in the near future is that we have to access banking websites which will not work on Windows 7 in the near future.
  19. Most of his videos are blocked in the UK at least on Youtube
  20. With stupid comments like that, she would be a sure fit as a new Tory adviser https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-51535367
  21. If charities are so good, why dont we just let them run everything and scrap the government

    Wasnt he banned from entering the USA after trying to use a friends passport because of his convictions for mortgage fraud
  23. SO Mitt Romney is voting against Trump, this will mean that Trump will be the first President to have a member from his own party vote to convict them in an impeachment trial

    That money was coming regardless of Brexit. Now we have stopped the payments to Brussels, when will we see that money. Also Brexit Britain is now following the Trump administration by banning journalists from Downing street briefings. At least all the journalists that were not banned had the decency to not attend the briefing https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/boris-johnson-brexit-news-journalists-walk-out-no-10-briefing-a9314996.html
