Re: General Election

Right, so other party's voters aren't Starmar's territory.... but other party's voters are Johnson's territory? What are you talking about? The whole point is that voters aren't fixed. For Labour to win an election, they need to take voters from other parties, by appealing to people who voted for a...

Re: General Election

Lib Dem voters are not Keir Starmer's territory though. Labour voters are. The working class are the core of the centre left, I've no idea how you can say otherwise, they are the ones the party exists for. And Boris Johnson's Conservatives just took a load of those votes (it's not just about Brexit,...

Re: General Election

Are you trying to insinuate that Boris Johnson is encroaching on the centre left's territory? :? I'm not insinuating it. He's all about spend spend spend in a very un-Conservative way. It was there in the manifesto pledges, there in the budget, and it's central to how he's approaching Covid-19. He'...

Re: General Election

Of course given you only ever refer to Labour as "they", it won't have any bearing on your politics! :D I refer to all political parties as 'they', given I'm not and never will be a member of any of them... You referred to them as "they" in the post I quoted, presumably for the same reason? I think...

Re: Current Events/News

All politicians of every colour lie as a matter of course, but what exactly would be Johnson's motivation here? Being incapacitated is a political weakness. Drawing attention to the need for people to follow the measures in place would be a good thing. The amount of collusion needed from people who ...

Re: General Election

Sir Keir Starmar wins Labour leadership contest. Pretty sure they could have quartered the time for the contest without much difference, but there we go. Probably ushers in a little more of a credible opposition to government. I dunno. I think so long as they avoided Long-Bailey, they'd have gained...

Re: 2019/2020 season

What do you mean, my first involvement was personal? I pointed out you'd missed the obvious sarcasm in someone else's comment and you shouldn't have chucked an insult at them. That's not a personal dig, it's about something incorrect and rude that you wrote. I had hoped to prompt an apology to Darth...

Re: 2019/2020 season

You can look forward to them then. As for the comparison to flu: perhaps you should have read what I was saying instead of assuming? But keep on being antagonistic and trying to have a fight. I'm going to log out now. What on earth is antagonising you? You disputed it would be hundreds of thousands...

Re: 2019/2020 season

I apologise, but I did say tell me if I've got it wrong, I didn't just assume. Since we're not at a stage where everything is shut down, and you keep drawing a direct comparison to flu where as you keep pointing out, no social measures are enforced, that gave the impression you think the same should...

Re: 2019/2020 season

I don't think it's going to be a few hundred thousand. I don't think it will be close. Well, that report says In total, in an unmitigated epidemic, we would predict approximately 510,000 deaths in GBand 2.2 million in the US, not accounting for the potential negative effects of health systems being...

Re: 2019/2020 season

Wee let's ignore that.... :shrug: There's no vaccine yet for covid-19, but neither is there a fully effective flu vaccination either. There are many strains of flu, which as you say, mutate over time, meaning that you can have the vaccine and still get flu (which is now why I don't bother having th...
