I’m not a big fan of Tories but Wollaston was a big loss to Parliament. A few good MP’s with medical backgrounds were lost at the last election. We could have done with them right now I reckon. Another Brexit dividend.

I'd be more confident if Wollaston was Secretary of State for Health and Social Care rather than people like Hancock and Whatley.

Surely we can do better than a historian, economist, financier and management consultant as ministers in a specialised department. Dorries is the only one with some medical background.

BBC to show match of the day from linekars kitchen. They're going to be sitting around talking about football.

More promisingly they are going to show classic cup ties.

Which will surely give me a chance to finally watch Middlesbrough v Chesterfield after I walked out of the pub I was watching it in at 2 nil down.

And she has shown she is amazingly stupid over the last four years, even before her faulty moral compass comes into the reckoning. I mean she is right up there with the dumbest. And that is a competitive field.

I'm not sure that it quite fits in to the definition of good news as such but this speech by Dr Emily Landon as they announced the enhanced self-isolation measures in Illinois known as "shelter in place," is getting high marks as a realistic and empowering piece of oratory. She doesn't sugarcoat things but it's not all doom and gloom either.

Another local transmission free day in China.

Not totally good news, but South Korea stopping gatherings and sporting events. This is due to a second increase in numbers. Hopefully we'll learn from any successes of how these countries deal with the second and third waves.

Slightly facetious : there are fewer 4x4s in London . . . as they head for second homes in Cornwall. I really feel sorry for Cornish inhabitants as their nearest major hospital is in Exeter.
