Re: Post Covid ecomony

well no government has bottomless pockets, and we can only stay on lockdown for so long before the natives get restless.. I am from a small remote island 90km off the coast of NZ, and already swams of boats have arrived to escape the lurg, and eat us out of house and home..Might be needin a wee shi...

Re: Miscellaneous COVID-19/Corona Virus Discussion, Questions, etc.

There's one well known topic we can't post about on this forum. There's an interesting link from Giggle under his other name on the other forum in the Quiet thread dated 1 April.

The other route is Metro UK 30 March. if I'm too specific this post will be zapped. It might be anyhow.

Re: U.K. going on lockdown, USA stopping restricting movement. WTF

After resisting a statewide stay-at-home order for days, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) succumbed to the pressure and issued one on Wednesday. Part of the reason, he said, was that he had just learned some new information. Kemp said he was “finding out that this virus is now transmitting before people...

Re: U.K. going on lockdown, USA stopping restricting movement. WTF

And the Russians are now helping the Americans. :shock:

I would have expected that to be the other way around. The US has taken a mighty tumble since Team Trump and Moscow Mitch have been in charge.

I think international tourism will be on the ropes for quite a while. At least until a half decent vaccine is widely rolled out.

Re: US Presidential election odds

From 18 March to 1 April they think Trump's chances of winning have improved. :shock:

Actually I think incumbents' political fortunes are on the rise as their nations rally around them.

If you bet a dollar on Trump with the 1 April odds, you'd get $1.91 back ($2.25 for a Biden bet).

Re: COVID and Australia

The Aussie PM calls in God for some assistance: Scott Morrison has offered a prayer for the national cabinet to stay “strong and united” and committed the Australian nation to God during times of “great need and suffering” as it responds to Covid-19. The prayer is contained in a video, first publish...

Any Old Etonians out there who know Johnson? Surely there are among the numerous retired MI 5 and MI 6 officers in Thailand.

I hope he maintains the traditional British stiff upper lip and doesn't start acting like a self-absorbed teenager.

Re: U.S. Politics

The US doesn't look too safe to me. It's extraordinary how a politician as grossly incompetent as Trump can still be in office. The Trump Coronavirus press conferences are shocking displays of how dysfunctional American politics has become. Trump's continuous need for praise is pathetic. Numerous th...

Perhaps you've already read your free Washington Post pages for March? Wait until next month although jack had a fairly recent thread showing how to get around these paywalls. It's worth following what they're doing and not doing in Australia. They aren't yet in what others might call a lock down an...

info coming from UK that lockdown will last at least until June or July PM sending letter to 30m households telling them it will get worse before it gets better and to stay indoors Bloody hell. That's going to be tough. Perhaps a similar scenario in New York? Possibly longer since internal travel w...

Miscellaneous COVID-19/Corona Virus Discussion, Questions, etc.

I just can’t believe that some of these Governments, did not have an “Emergency Epidemic Response Plan” of some sorts in place, before this Covid 10 started ... I just see a lot of these Governments, being either unprepared for an event such as this, or too slow off the mark to recognize the potent...

Re: Boris tests positive for Corona

I have found shaking hands a source of anxiety for some weeks before our lock down in NZ. The other person often has too. I did notice there were some who displayed little or no anxiety. Oddly some of those folks were very cautious on other Covid 19 related hygiene matters. I think it would be reall...

New York is looking pretty vulnerable on some of those factors too. It might soon get really ugly in New York too.

Trump's comments in the ad make it really clear how grossly unfit for office he is. A leader wouldn't survive 2 minutes in many other countries if he was this shockingly dreadful.

I think Boris is great fun and would be a good chap to perch next to on a bar stool. But I think he's a woefully incompetent Prime Minister and that his recent leadership has been very poor. The British public deserve better. I wish him a speedy recovery.

Those numbers help put a bit of perspective on the pandemic. I fear you are gloating too soon. Future updates would be welcome.
