I read somewhere that it would take approximately a year to come up with a vaccine.



18 months at best

Quoted from codcheeky



My main concern is that the “experts” our government has seem to be making a different call to those in nearly every other country except the US and even they are banning flights


Why is it that some folks think when some other country does things differently to us they are always better than us, but if the UK (especially Boris it seems) does something differently to them we are automatically worse?

Could it just possibly be that the expert statistical analysis yesterday for the UK was in fact a better guide to what is needed in the UK ?

Quoted from GrimRob
My wife has a medical condition that corona virus would make life threatening so it's self isolate time. For months if necessary.


Same here Rob I have had to say no to the great grandkids for the first time when one wanted to come for a sleepover.

The wife is very vulnerable to most infections and this one would be fatal .

And I am sure neither you nor Rob needed a politician or a Chief Medical Officer to tell you what to do Pete. Keep safe, mate. You too Rob.

The sad fact is that some folk will use this outbreak to score cheap points.  The bottom line is that we will never really know if the government have got it right or wrong.
It's like the JF saving us or should we have gone into administration ?  We will never know what would have happened had we done things differently.  No doubt, whichever way it is handled, some of those that did not have to make the decisions will claim it was wrong.  This isn't a pop at the opposition, I'm sure if the boot were on the other foot things would be the same. It's a sad indication that even in times like this we can not show unity when it really is required. As for me, I will take the governments advice as I'm sure they know a lot more about it than me.  




The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

Thanks mate we are well stocked up with provisions so hopefully will be ok.

I did say on another post that the first person in Suffolk with the virus lives in our village so we have been house bound for a week already but it will take as long as it takes to keep the wife safe.

Quoted from GollyGTFC


I’m sure by next winter they’ll be a new joint flu/coronavirus vaccine available and this will prove to be a once in a lifetime emergency.


I just hope my lifetime  lasts until next winter. I'm 68 with bowel liver and lung cancer and my wife has low immunity due to drugs she has to take for her conditions. Apart from a shopping trip before 8am today while it was quiet we're closing the door and sitting tight. Like Pete I don't want my grand daughters or my son round to see us Trouble is how long does one isolate for? I don't think we are anywhere near the peak so it could be Halloween before it's safe to emerge



One enormous step forward at last followed by two steps back again. It has to be a clear out from the top, the players and the manager, no going back. An opportunity missed Hurst out

Pretending the virus is different in the Uk to ltaly France Spain Ireland and the rest is crazy, Whoever is in power should be using a wide a field of experts and data to what works as possible. We seem to have a government being too pro active, this is only my opinion. Nothing is definatively right or wrong but most countries are taking swifter and more decisive action.
That the Tories have let waiting lists get to record levels is a fact, That they have cut billions from social care is a fact, that the NHS is already working at capacity, has over 40,000 infilled vacancies and has people on trolleys in corridors is a fact and whatever the mumbling lump of lard in charge says the lack of investment over the last 10 years is coming back to bite us

And there we have it.  Lets use this for our own political agenda.  

If Corbyn had been in power in 1939 we would probably all be speaking German now.
