    Utopia on Amazon Prime

    Finished season 1 today, It was OK, reasonably entertaining but as Dood says watch the original first it is better.

    Utopia on Amazon Prime

    I watched the first 3 episodes last night. You are right it is not as good as the original. Seems darker than I recall, or is it just a bit more graphic. I think the current pandemic adds something to the believability of it too. You are right about character development, but that is the yanks...

    The Good Law Project

    I have said this before, some months ago. I wonder if Johnson wanted to be PM to enrich himself by grabbing as much cash as he can for a short period of time, and accepting that he will be forever viewed as the worst prime minister the country has ever seen. The billion or so that he creams off...

    I can't be bothered with going into what is wrong with the original post.

    Contact tracing app relaunch

    Randy, ST exactly what information do you think the app is grabbing, and how do you think it will be used? I fail to see any benefit in anonymized data. The fact that booked tests are not linkable via the app is a limitation on the api provided form the OS development, not the app itself...

    The 9am figures not disclosed yet?

    The problem is the government have had 6 months to plan for winter and they seem to have done nothing other than increase the availability for testing. We should have had a pandemic plan that managed itself, we should have Proper measures at ports for ingress into the country, temperatures...

    Contact tracing app relaunch

    I don't disagree that a test regime at 51% accuracy is not much better than a coin toss. The point I am making is it is 1% bertter than a coin toss so has some, albeit tiny, use. The more accurate the better, also true. I would take an issue with requiring an 80%- 90% accuracy for a test regime...

    The 9am figures not disclosed yet?

    All true Billy, I think my worry is that the government will have a real reluctance to shut down again, I suspect first time around there was a suspicion that a quick sharp shutdown would solve the problem. With no shut down we will probably take a long time to reach the peak but I expect to see...

    Trying to get a test - ridiculous

    Moonshot is an unashamed attempt to transfer billions of tax payers money to Johnsons family. I really hope it never happens.

    Trying to get a test - ridiculous

    I booked a test yesterday morning. It took about 3-4 hours of trying but got booked in. Had my result this afternoon, negative. The system worked for me, but I appreciate I may well be in the minority, and I live in an area with low infection rates.

    The 9am figures not disclosed yet?

    Thanks Bear.. .and oh dear, I didn't realize the death numbers were so small before the first lockdown. I would hope the app being released will help reduce numbers of infected that are out and about.

    Contact tracing app relaunch

    The use of the data is very limited, because not only is it anonymous, but the key changes so you cannot even identify with 1 phone consistently. Secondly, it would be illegal and as such actionable in court. This is just plain old wrong, any testing that yields results better than 50% is a...

    The rule of 6, whilst simple to understand is deeply flawed.

    The 9am figures not disclosed yet?

    Gaz, I would expect the government to wait, rightly or wrongly and see how the current restrictions play out. In truth it may be too late already to contain a second spike of the same proportions as the first. Bear, Billy do you know what the mortality figures were like when we first locked down...

    Contact tracing app relaunch

    I suspect it would be because the government are generally held in pretty low regard at the moment so the mistrust is understandable. I am fortunate that I work in the industry and understand how the app works and I looked into the google api months ago. It is secure.
