    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    It is worth a try at the bigger shops now. The queues look worse than they really are. Went to Tesco's a few days ago, they do a "vulnerable people" hour between 10 and 11, I think, so I joined the queue at a few minutes to 11, everyone is well over 2m apart, I was in within 5 minutes, I bought...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    I've read something very similar. With regards to releasing everyone from lockdown, I think that this needs to be done only once we have measures to deal with the virus in place, and at the moment we are behind.

    In Spain they are now only giving respirators to the under 60's ☹️ Let's hope we are not in the same position when the time comes.

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    The Crick Institute are in fact going to be testing, I think next week, but my point is that they offered 2 weeks ago and PHE weren't interested. His view was that the smaller labs can organise much quicker and add to the process rather than sitting idle. They have already switched the Cancer...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    So what you're saying is that the "Government" procures supplies on behalf of PHE? I don't think so, but then I'm not an expert, I just glean information from where I can. The guy on the radio, Sir Paul Crick, who is the CEO of The Francis Crick Institute which is a biomedical research centre...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    Listening to Radio 4, they had a guy on there from the Crick Foundation or Institute, I can't quite remember. He was their top man. He said that there were a large number of smaller laboratories in the public sector that had offered to do testing, however Public Health England had basically...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    I comment on what I like, especially if it is nonsense, now who was telling people to "shut up"? You really do need to stop this anagonisation, it's not necessary, as I said " I bow t your superiority :facepalm:

    Here we go Frank, I've gone through a lot of this guy's stuff, quite interesting, he tries to go for the unusual.

    Too late, if you think I'm going to take this seriously and get into it again after your recent nonsense, you've got another thing coming.

    I'm sure JV would be able to shed a little more light on this. Some of the German technology at the time was impressive.

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    Thumps, I remember discussing this some time ago in one of those WW2 threads. At the time I remembered reading about German intentions to launch missiles on New York although I couldn't remember the source, maybe it was related to the communique that Goebbles made regarding their intentions...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    Yes, I'm sure that government cuts have an effect, however they did manage to spend a lot of money telling us not to eat biscuits and our kids are fat.

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    Makes sense doesn't it? I suspect that the problem is having the numbers of face masks available to provide sufficient quantities for everyone. I go back to what I have previously mentioned, in the UK, Public Health England is responsible for "preparing for and responding to public health...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    Oh dear, you really do like to have the last word. Try reading my posts, they are quite literal, I understand you don't like the Tories, neither do I. I have stated where I sit politically on many occasions throughout this thread, long before you joined in, and I can assure you it hasn't...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    Again, putting words in my mouth. At no time have I written that you should "shut up"or even implied it. I merely responded to your post about medical advice in that you were wrong in your supposition. You could have responded with "well if they are these medical and scientific experts aren't...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    I think you need to try and understand that your view is not everyone's and I am entitled to "stick my oar in" when I please. You are also putting words in my mouth, read what I have written, respond to that if you are inclined, disagree if you like, but let's get it quite clear, you are not an...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    What I do know is that you are purely speculating as to what went on in January or February because you are not party to those conversations. In my view virtually every single government did not react as I believe they should, but that is not the point. However it is evident that our government...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    I was under the impression that the government strategy was based on advice from the Chief Medical Officer and the Chief Science Officer. The CMO is one of England’s foremost epidemiologists – which means he is considered an authority identifying patterns of infection and researching new...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    Interesting videos from Mark Felton, he did one recently about the British unit that landed on Omaha beech on DDay. Docklands busy with freight, the Tourist traffic has ended for the time being as you would expect the French, as always, playing silly buggers
