I think there will be a huge backlash for China over this.
Tourism will stop and “made in China” will become toxic. People have had enough of there shit.
We are far to reliant on them. We don’t need a $60 chainsaw or $3 screwdriver. Spread manufacturing around again, pay a bit more. I heard Apple are packing up and heading to India already. At least they only eat sheep and chooks.
I’d like to think you’re right mate. But most sheep only care about one thing.

Keep an eye on the At Risk list guys.
To be honest, I was trying to find a way of getting out of helping someone out but checked on the British Heart Foundation website this morning and found that, at 65 years old, my (relatively high) blood pressure includes me in the list.
It’s worth looking up any long term ailment just to check.

I'm rather enjoying this to be honest. Roads are dead in Wales now. It's like living in a country with 10 million rather than 67 million. Bet the UK was way less stressful 200 yrs ago. (Unless you were piss poor of course)

Problem is the cunts in the west, you know politician, bankers, industry telling us we're in a global economy. Bullshit "global economy" means we've taken your jobs for bigger profit elsewhere, no morals with these globalist neo liberal cunts.....China is a halfway shithole without any level playing fields, with no concern for the betterment of mankind either.

These same cunts in the west will be quick to point the finger at China at OUR EXPENSE. John Pilger, your countryman journalist has been warning about this for well over a decade.

Also bear in mind, the eating of wild exotic animals by the rich in China, yeh the rich, the locals eat the same as us. This all came about during the cultural revolution in China when people were starving, their diets were supplemented by bred captive wild animals and this was backed by the state. Where was the fucking west then? Beating the drum of establishment order against socialism.

Mine was 212 over 120!
Although on relatively small doses of Candesartin and Bendro-something and, apart from very occasional light headedness, it seems under control. I used to get regular headaches but that disappeared within weeks of starting the tablets.

I was going in for an eye op so it was reckoned there was an element of white coat syndrome at that moment but I have always bled for England if I cut myself diy’ing.

The only upside of all this is that we're not having to put up hearing from all the tree huggers, climate change, gender fluidity, brexit doomsdayers, scottish independence tossers banging on about things that don't really matter!
Great documentary on I-Player about the carbon footprint of streaming video, so Greta and her internet addicted tosspot mates can piss off as they do more harm watching YouTube on their phone all day than we do riding our bikes...

...Have to admit I fee that the sudden stop in air traffic is allowing the whole planet to breathe a sigh of relief.

Lock-down might see all the cities with pollution problems looking much better too - perhaps the gov need to take a hint here and give Motorcycles free passes into all emissions zones and allow us use of bus lanes, provide decent places to park with ground anchors and some Police who can rock up PDQ and beat the shit out of any hoodie trying to angle grind a chain off.

I might have to take my 75 year old mother some critical supplies and luckily it means a 30 minutes cross country journey on deserted roads :)

Not all doom and gloom out there

Fuckin’ell!!!
Just looked at the Swedish numbers, and it seems to be growing at half the rate (took 15 days to grow between those numbers), and pretty much nothing is locked down here. Everyone is out and about, schools are open. Mind you. they've always been an anti-social bunch.

Saw a vapour trail overhead today for the 1st time in days. I live about equidistant from East Midlands, Doncaster and Manchester airports so it's quite a novelty.
