    That wouldn't surprise me

    The section of M25 I mentioned is now virtually all variable speed limit. Some of the slip roads on have traffic lights and I thinks it's all pretty much all 4 lane. Rush now starts to kick in at 6.00 am.....

    What with coronavirus it is probably best to put 'air recirculate' on when you are doing a bit of tailgating.

    Great tip. After all, I would not want to put my health at risk while tailgating. :p

    As long as you are fit and healthy and you've had your BCG jab, Covid is unlikely to cause you any significant issues.

    And young. As long as you've chosen to be young and healthy you're probably fine.

    Apart from those who aren't.

    120,000 deaths because of austerity?
    Left wing clap trap as usual. Spread by corbyn and his zealous acolytes.


    https://www.channel4.com/news/factcheck/factcheck-did-austerity-kill-120000-people

    He pointed out that while something seems to have happened in 2014 that caused deaths in the UK to rise, “the link to health and social care spending is speculative as observational studies of this type can never prove case and effect.”

    Dr Richard Fordham, senior lecturer in health economics at the University of East Anglia, was also cautious about such “longitudinal studies,” noting that “different time periods are rarely identical.” So it may not be fair to compare trends from one decade (the 2000s) with another (the early 2010s), as this study has done.


    Ultimately, we cannot say — based on the evidence in this study — that austerity policies caused 120,000 extra deaths.

    Lockdown is a good precaution for people in high risk groups. It would mean that those with low risks can keep the economy going.

    my sons gf was furloughed from her Saturday job. Nice bit of pocket money for nothing courtesy of the tax payer. Lockdown 2.0 needs to be risk based.

    I think extensive test and trace is the solution.
    Lockdown is a blunt instrument, prob necessary the first time, we can't afford to do it again

    That solution only tells you where the infection is and who has been infected, on it's own it does nothing to prevent the continuing spread of the virus.

    It would still need localised lock down of those infected to prevent them spreading the virus.

    Yes indeed.

    I should have been clearer by specifying national lockdown.
