  1. To be honest I think it's more to do with attracting the muslim vote and sympathy for Palestinians. I very much doubt Corbyn is really filled with hate. Hopefully it gives the Labour party a taste of being accused of hate and they stop flinging mud around.
  2. Anti semitism seems to be associated more with the UK Labour party these days. Corbyn in particular.
  3. To me paying only £2100 pa on a half million pound house seemed a bit low. I based that on the idea that a 50k heap of garbage in Sunderland probably has a council tax that is similar. To check if I was right I googled lowest council tax. The results are a bit of a revelation. Lowest council tax in England is Westminster. Average price of a terrace in Westminster is £3,116,862. Next lowest is Wandsworth, £450 per year. Then Hammersmith and Fullham. Kensington and Chelsea is five. All of the top ten lowest tax rates are in London. In the places where the wealthiest live. htt
  4. Wow, in hindsight it took off really quickly. I guess testing must have been really poor back then. Clearly 20% fatality rate does not look correct! I guess we're catching most cases now, though? Yeah, my memory is not the most accurate. Especially at the moment.
  5. I'll take your word for it. My memory is a bit flaky at the best of times.
  6. It's strange. The video shows a huge spike of deaths in March, 'back when the virus was really out of control'. I don't remember it that way at all. My recollection was that, at least in early March, the number of infections numbered in the hundreds. It was bad in China, Italy and Iran. In UK number of new cases peaked at about 5000 per day in April. Nothing like the numbers we are seeing now. Anyone else remember a big spike in deaths in March? I suppose I could always read back in the thread and check.
  7. That's really great! I guess it's different for everyone. Some people really don't do well, others just shrug it off. I'm glad he's OK. Yeah, I was suprised by the lack of respiritory symptoms. I though I'd have a blocked nose and maybe pnumonia or something. But, touch wood, I've had nothing like that.
  8. Here's what a postive test result looks like. Got a text too. Followed by a lot of pestering by test and trace. Your coronavirus test result is positive. It means you had the virus when the test was done. You should be contacted for contact tracing. You must, by law, self-isolate immediately for 10 days. The 10 days begin the day after: your symptoms started the test date if you’ve no symptoms If you’
  9. Heh, fist ASL I've seen for a long time. M 46. Generally good health. 80 kg before I got the Corona. I'd say 75 now. Don't generally get sick. Yeah, the lungs definitly aren't in the best of shape right now. Not much coughing, but somtimes breathing in is painful. Like the surface of the lungs, not the muscles. Hard to describe. I'm quite spaced out, as I said, so you'll have to make allowences for my rambling post. I get the feeling that if you had a heart condition or asthma or something you could be in real trouble. If you're young and strong you'll probably be OK. It might put y
  10. Tested positive for Corona on Monday. But I has it for at least a week before I took the test. For me the symptoms were extreme tiredness and dizzyness. A fever developed later. Not much of a cough at all, although my lungs occasionally feel like they've been through a blender. No sniffles or bloked nose or anything like that. Dizzyness, tiresness and a fever since about Sunday. Also a bit spaced out and delerious. If you are old or weak I'd say this is something you want to avoid if possible. I can see how it could take a dangerous path. Can't think of anything interesting to say ab
  11. 'According to the reports, the Uganda government on Tuesday through the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has ordered internet service providers to block access to social media applications and websites. It was reported that Twitter and Facebook were trying to interfere in the elections by blocking certain pro-government voices.' https://www.opindia.com/2021/01/uganda-bans-twitter-and-facebook-over-election-interference-allegations/ The source is fairly biased, true. But it has a ring of truth to it. Twitter, Facebook and the rest of the left wing extremeists have been banning p
  12. It was all fun and games when they were banning Trump. But Twitter and Facebook being banned in Uganda for their left wing propaganda is wrong because 'freedom of speech!'
  13. You're absolutely right. The printed money is enriching a very small number of people at the expense of everyone else. It's repulsive.
  14. Yep, the Cameron government should have torn up Brown's spending commitments as soon as they took office, if you ask me.
  15. I'm not a citizen of USA, so I can't vote there. Minimum wage is an interesting topic. It's a policy I agree with. It's also left wing. So, yeah, maybe I seem to contradict myself. But to me it seems that improving standards of living for the working class is not a left wing policy any more. Maybe it never really was. The modern left is about increasing the power of the state. One way they try to do this is by creating dependence on the state. If someone has the support of their family or community they are not dependent on the state. Hence the drive to destroy family and divide communiti
