Sorry for new thread,
But how bad do you lot reckon it’s going to get here in the UK?
I just been watching the news. Looking nasty in Italy.

My methods are not favoured by some but by god i speak the truth.

Feeling quite wistful today. Got a bit misty eyed for the days when the government would make up bare faced lies for military intervention abroad. Also reminiscing about trips to town and the having to avoid eye contact with increasing amounts of homeless people.

Can I just ask, is b&q classed as essential?


I think they are allowed to open as they are a “hardware” store. Whether travelling to one constitutes an essential journey is a completely different matter.

If it's to do with the basics of life then no. The longer lockdown goes on people need to keep occupied even for their mental state. One fit doesn't fit all but if done properly and helps people get through the next weeks then it could help.

Would they not be better off just uping their delivery service?
Any retail unit other than food is non essential in my eyes. I am all for deliveries, one guy and leave on the doorstep...... Any retail unit as say other than food that is trying to entice people through their doors, these retailers need a good talking.
This is not a good move by b&q at all.

They’ll come under the “hardware shops” category that are one of the exceptions to mandatory closure.

Absolutely. I’ve spent the last 4 weeks doing more gardening, painting, tidying up the garage and shed than I have in the last 4 years.

I’m even wondering what to do next week. As Mrs JB will attest, this isn’t normal behaviour.

Yes, totally. If I couldn't paint my fence with the paint I picked up at B&Q then I'd spend all my time plotting to eat my neighbour.

And neither her husband nor my wife would be very happy about that.

Others, I'm sure will be thinking equally disruptive thoughts with all this time on our hands, especially anyone normally obsessed with transfer fantasies at this time of year. So, to keep us occupied, B&Q is the fourth emergency service just now.

They're all certainly issues that will be under consideration.

Lockdown seems to be more about buying time to extend the NHS capacity to deal with CV19 rather than putting an end to it. Only immunity one way or another will ultimately do that.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

Yes it's just trying to 'Squash the Sombrero' as the arsehole clown Johnno put it before it all became less of a joke for the vacuous tw^t.

If it does mean a vaccine saves some of the lives that would have been lost in a non-lockdown, that's a bonus, but the whole driver is NHS capacity.

Without a change in immunity or virus mutation (no one likes to kill their host, not good for future invites) the total number of deaths will be what they would be as if the NHS had the capacity to treat everyone who needs treatment now. It'll just over a more protracted period.

The winter version of all this might make this period look like a nice little picnic. That's why we should all be praying for a vaccine to come through pdq.

Or some improvement in treatment, this was the path followed for AIDS if we can ease the symptoms that would be fantastic.

Suppose it is debatable. If you think the following type of thing needs repairing then yes

If you see it as a good opportunity to build a water feature and just want rocks and plastic liner then probably no.

A family member has told me that one of her lecturers from Swansea Uni passed away today from the Covid19 virus, she said he was a really tidy guy. There’s a mention of him in the below article and also news of a young healthcare support worker at Morriston Hospital passing away. RIP.

The article also provides some detail re the number of rolled who have died in most of the Health-board areas.

I’v just seen this and it’s flattened me. Brian was the admissions tutor for mental health nursing at Swansea University. I have sat on countless interview panels with him looking at prospective mental health nurses including up to five weeks ago when face to face interviews were suspended.

He was a lovely, lovely man and a big strong bloke as well.

Absolutely gutted.

Today was the first day that the UK mortality rate exceeded Italys (+/- 14 days). The stuff that was being run last month by the Times i think. We are running at 105.3% of them. There has been a steady C.+1% movement day on day, so following that trend, we are likely to be hitting mortality rate of around 120% of Italys.

They say we should be looking at number of cases etc, but that stat is as flawed as any other. At the end of the day, we are all interested in the mortality rate as thats the end game, and we appear to moving in the wrong direction.

As of the corresponding date in Italy, their mortality rate dropped off by a steady 25% over the next week or so, and an additional 10% after that. We need to do the same.
