    Andy Preston confusing?

    I think it was fanciful to expect the government to write a set of bespoke Middlesbrough regulations when there are already regulations in place for the rest of the north east. That was even more so when the government has been getting criticised for the complexity of different rules in...

    ‘Epidemic’ doubling every 7 days.....

    If you watched Panorama or read any of The Guardian articles a couple of months ago, it’s pretty clear that the Imperial College modelling played very little part in the decision to impose lockdown. The modellers has been saying the exact same thing (500k deaths if no restrictions were imposed)...

    Middlesbrough Lockdown Confirmed

    You are wrong I’m afraid. It would be illegal for you to meet him in his garden ( not just advised against) and you could be fined if you did. Also, you won’t be able to arrange to meet him in the Cross either. Of course, if you both happened to be there at the same time (sat separately)...

    ‘Epidemic’ doubling every 7 days.....

    Those are just the figures for England (and provisional in the case of 26th Sept). The provisional UK figures for those dates (excluding Scotland) are: Hospital admissions Sept 18th 248 Hospital admissions Sept 26th 313 So a 26% increase between the two dates. But it is far too simplistic to...

    Cake Vs Pudding

    So, according to Wiktionary, a pudding (the sweet variety anyway) is a type of cake or dessert cooked usually by boiling or steaming. So, by implication, types of cake can be a pudding, but only if they are boiled or steamed. There's also a definition which states the dessert course of a meal...

    Cake Vs Pudding

    Interesting take on the question. Not sure it's the dictionary definition of a cake/pudding though.

    Cake Vs Pudding

    Well, I'm glad we've cleared that up! I voted cake but I'm doubting myself again now.

    Cake Vs Pudding

    What does hot chocolate fudge cake count as? I mean, obviously it's a cake but it's also served hot with cream/ice cream so...

    The 9am figures not disclosed yet?

    Call me old fashioned, but when the debate was about hospital numbers, I thought it most relevant to refer to hospital numbers. What do you reckon is declining, just out of interest?

    The 9am figures not disclosed yet?

    I've never said that the virus wasn't seasonal. In fact, on 29th June I made the following post which, unfortunately, appears to becoming true: On 11th September there were 77 people with Covid-19 on ventilators. Two weeks later on 25th September (last data available) that number had...

    The 9am figures not disclosed yet?

    Interesting hypothesis, for which I note you provide no evidence. It also runs contrary to the fact that the total number of people in hospital with Covid has doubled in the past fortnight and the number of people on venilators has increased by 240% in the same period.

    House Of Commons Bars - drink, drink, drink

    I agree it could just be the wording, but the quote from the Parliamentary spokesperson was "Alcohol will not be served anywhere on the parliamentary estate after 10pm". The Daily Mirror has also added that "it is unclear whether MPs will be able to continue drinking after 10pm if they have...

    House Of Commons Bars - drink, drink, drink

    Still not following the same rules as the rest of us. All they've said is that they'll stop serving alcohol at 10pm. All other bars in England have to stop serving at least 20 minutes in advance of then and have the premises closed by 10pm.
